Yes, you just need an adapter cord. I bought one for $5.00. It has the yellow and white ends that plug into our TV and the auxillary jack on the opposite end that plug into the PC jack on the stereo.

Yes, you can hook up the audio from your TV or DVD player to the system as it has an audio input. Bear in mind however that it has just one line input so preferably you would connect the DVD player to your TV and then in turn connect your TV to the system.

Yes, that will work fine - you can simply twist the wires together or (preferably) solder the wires or use crimp connectors. To finish off wrap with electrical tape or better still use heat-shrink sleeving.

yes, you could, but speakers generally work and sound better if the speakers empedance matches the unit. This unit requires 12 ohm empedance speakers.

possible but this model pushes 500 watts and breaks it up un evenly between the plugs so probably not gonna work very well plus it will void the warranty and you can't return it

Yes, other speakers/speaker cable can be crimped in. However bear in mind the power rating and impedance of the other speakers so you don't get a mismatch.

The three supplied speakers precisely match the amplifier and are 12Ω, not 8Ω. Most hi-fi speakers would not give equal or better performance than the supplied speakers.

No, it cannot be used as a Home Theater system, as it has neither RCA nor optical inputs. The only inputs it has are iPod/iPhone and PC. As for Gen 6 Nanos, I’m not entirely sure whether it’s compatible with Gen 6 Nanos, because I’m not familiar with the type of connection Apple chose for Gen 6. Additionally, the package shows all the iPods/iPhones this system is compatible with and Gen 6 is not on the list.

The Sony MHC-EC909iP has been tested to be compatible with iPod touch, iPod nano 1st-3rd generation, iPod classic, iPod 4th-5th generation and iPod mini. Other iPod devices not listed may work but full functionality is not guaranteed.

If your TV has an audio line out it can be connected to the line in connector of the system.

you overheated the unit and it goes into protect. did you plug other speakers into it--this will cause that to happen. you may need to have a factory repair center re-set the unit for you.

No digital input whatsoever. Unless your TV has an RCA audio out, you'll need to use the component cables for your Xbox... and for the audio RCAs you'll need to buy an adapter that has 2 female RCAs on one end, and a male stereo mini-jack on the other end.
