Panasonic television sets, whether digital or analogue, are equipped with different connection jacks to accommodate electronic components such as a home theatre system. Digital Panasonic sets have component RGB jacks for video. Analogue sets use an S-video socket to receive the video signal. Some digital Panasonic models also have S-video to connect with older, analogue equipment. Since a home theatre with built-in DVD player provides the sound through the system's connected speakers, only a video connection is needed for the Panasonic.

  1. 1

    Unplug the home theatre system and the Panasonic from the electrical sockets.

  2. 2

    Connect the three colour-coded video plugs on a component cable to the red, green and blue inputs on a digital Panasonic TV, or insert the S-video cable into the S-video input socket of an analogue Panasonic. S-video can also be used to connect the TV with an older home theatre system that may only have an S-video output.

    Insert the component plugs on the other end of the cable into the digital video outputs of the home theatre system, or plug in the S-video cable to the S-video output on the system.

  4. 4

    Plug in the power cords for the home theatre and Panasonic.

  5. 5

    Switch on the TV and activate the connection to the home theatre by pressing the "Input" button on the remote control.
