    I have a Philips HTS3510 home theater system. I tried to connect it to the OnePlus Y Seires TV using a 3 pin AV cable. But when I go to settings and switch from "Speakers" to "External Audio System".... The audio still comes from the tv speakers. Can anyone tell me why this ain't working?

    The TV only supports Audio out Via HDMI/Optical/Bluetooth. As your sound system doesn't have any of these connections, you need to use a digital to Analog convertor.

    Just searched for it as well. Truely the least ammount of inputs i've seen on a HT system in a long while.
    Seems like it's only inteded for surround on the DVD player itself.

    Indeed. The model released long back and mostly these days the systems have atleast Optical/ARC. ARC is the future though.

    The HT system does support HDMI though.... You think it'll work if I used a HDMI cable rather than the 3 pin?

    It's only HDMI output without ARC (audio return channel) so no it won't work with your TV sound.

    Even when using the 3-pin it won't be surround. since three pin only supports stereo.

    So there is no way I can use this HT system for my TV sound?

    These r the ports available in my HT system. I don't think the system supports coaxial. What shall I do for video when using dvd? Can I connect the yellow plug (video) directly b/w my HT system and the TV?

    What exactly is your purpose. Get just the audio out from TV to Sound System or Have Video In and Audio Out together.
