Solved Hooking up external audio to a TV without dual audio inputs?

Hi everyone.

My friend has been using a older CRT RCA TV for his video game systems and had a older RCA stereo system connected to it to serve for better sound externally. He got a new TV- a Sanyo one with component inputs and it doesn't have any dual RCA inputs on it. Is there any modifying I can do to it in order to connect the stereo system? Also if there's any product he can buy to connect it let me know.

Thanks a bunch!

Most tv's with multiplle inputs have rca video and audio inputs.

Some of them don't. A friend of mine bought a Panasonic from Kmart and all it had was component, HDMI, and RF, no composite inputs.

Comguy, your post is a little confusing, You say the TV doesn't have any RCA inputs but if your trying to connect audio from the TV to the reciever you would need audio outputs. If he is just using this for video gaming, there should be audio outputs on the game console. Just run those to the receiver.

✔ Best Answer
If the TV has no RCA then use an old video tape recorder as a converter. RF quality may not be very good.

The TV has only a component in, two composite in and a RF in. I mean that there is no seperate dual (red/white) inputs for external audio.

A VTR or a game converter will mix the video and audio to RF.
