Hi Graham,

I'm not aware of a way of connecting the Tvonics box to a TV using the scart
output, and to a hifi, simultaneously.  This is because the Tvonics does not
have a dedicated audio out.  In order to get audio out of the Tvonics, you
need to extract it from the signals sent via either the scart or optical
outputs.  So the only way I could imagine achieving what you want would be
via a splitter cable.  I don't know if these are available, but you could
have a look.  You would need a cable with a scart socket at one end to take
the output from the Tvonics box, and a splitter with a scart socket on one
side and phonos on the other, as the outputs.  Apart from not knowing
whether the appropriate cable exists, there could also be an issue arising
from the fact that you would be powering two devices from a signal the
strength of which is designed to drive just one.

In case you don't have them, here is what the instructions say on the
subject:

"Connecting to a HIFI or speakers (sound only set up)

With the rear of the box facing you, plug your aerial cable into the aerial
In socket (furthest left). Plug the mains power cable into the furthest
right socket.

If your HIFI or speakers have an optical in then you can connect using the
SPDIF socket which is just to the left of the mains socket.

If you do not have an optical in then you can connect it to a HIFI using the
SCART socket and an adaptor. The adaptor you will need is a SCART to Phono
adaptor. These are readily available on the high street. This plug changes
the SCART into three Phono plug sockets - red, white and yellow. You can
then attach it to your HIFI using a standard Phono cable.

If you want to attach it to a set of speakers which have a 3.5mm headphone
plug then you will need a further adaptor/cable."

HTH

Hi phil.

In an ideal world, i'd like to connect my box to a hifi and a tv.  I know
there is a HDMI socket but can this also be used to connect to a line in
audio or do you need the scart socket for this?  My tv has a scart input but
no HDMI inputs and my amp only has audio inputs. anything I can do to get
both working?

Regards

Graham

Graham,

I believe you will need a scart to phono converter cable.  Then you either
connect the phonos from this converter directly to your HiFi, or, if you
only have a stereo 3.5mm input, a second cable to convert the phonos to a
stereo 3.5mm jack.

Details are given in the Tvonics instructions which you can download from
the RNIB online shop.

The one point about which I am not certain is this: the scart to phono
converter actually has three output plugs, two are the red / white phono
plugs which will supply the audio.  But there is a third, I think it
provides the video element of the signal and can be ignored. I think it may
be coloured yellow but feels just the same as the red / white phono plugs.
I guess you just ignore this third output, and without any sighted
assistance, trial and error will be required to identify which of the three
are the red and white phonos.

Perhaps others know more...

Hope that helps.

Phil

Hi all.

An old chestnut this one I suspect but, I have recently bought a TVonics
talking freeview box and wondered how i go about connecting it to my hifi.

I understand it does not have audio out so I would need to convert the
output from one of the scart sockets to audio.  is this just a case of
buying a cable or is there more I need?

Regards

Graham
