A question ...
A friend asked me to look for something sound-wise for her TV. She has an ancient huge-ish TV and also has an ancient huge-ish surround sound system.

The TV sound is fried and not worth fixing. The sound system is dying. She wants to get something new. The problem that I am seeing is that this ancient sound system has a coax in, which goes direct to the wall, and that is where she is getting her sound. I find nothing current (on a quick look) that does anything like this.

Does this sound right to any of you? Does anyone have any ideas on how to replace this for a reasonable price?

Does the tv itself have a Sound Out? Probably a mini-plug. If so, any system with an input will be okay. If she has an iPod external speaker system, that may have an input. Her current sound system may be dying, but it also may be adequate for tv sound.

A coax splitter is a possibility, but if she's getting cable tv, she may need a separate box.

Yes, I saw that. But the speaker sub-system is (usually) different than the sound output subsystem. I've used many a workaround.

As I understand it, the entire sound board is dead.
