1 Terminology

Like any hobby or job, there's a lot of very technical terms used to describe the various elements of a home theater system. Because of this, this guide cannot be exhaustive, but we'll be focused on a few, common terms you'll be encountering throughout this process.

Source
Something that generates audio or video. Your Blu-Ray player is a source of audio and video for the movies you play on it. Your cable box is a source of audio and video for television, and so on. example media device
Output
This is where the device creates signal to go to another device. For example, the HDMI port on the back of your Blu-Ray player is an output that sends its picture to whatever it is plugged into. Example of output sources of a media device

2 Documentation

At first, setting up a home theater can be daunting, but a little careful planning can go a very long way in making it a fun, easy, and rewarding experience.

Write down what you have

To start, make a list of every device you have that you'd like to get connected to your home theater system. While this seems silly at first, it keeps things very organized for later, making this an invaluable step.

It's also helpful if you run into problems. If your Smart TV starts having problems, and you need to call someone for help, moving things around to look behind is a hassle. Simply glancing at a single sheet of paper with everything written down makes it a lot easier.

For each device, you'll want the following information:

  • What the device is, its make and model, and the types of connections it uses (both inputs and outputs). You can then highlight the connection you decide to use within your setup. For example:

    • Device #1
      Type A/V Receiver
      Make/Model Yamaha RX-V683BL
      Input Connection(s) HDMI, RCA, Optical
      Output Connection(s) HDMI, RCA, Speakers
       
    • Device #2
      Type TV
      Make/Model Samsung
      UN40MU6300
      Input Connection(s) HDMI
      Output Connection(s) Optical
       
    • Device #3
      Type Blu-Ray Player
      Make/Model Panasonic
      DMP-UB700
      Input Connection(s) None
      Output Connection(s) HDMI
       
    • Device #4
      Type Game Console
      Make/Model Nintendo Switch
      Input Connection(s) None
      Output Connection(s) HDMI
       
    • Device #5
      Type Record Player
      Make/Model Audio-Technica
      AT-LP60
      Input Connection(s) None
      Output Connection(s) RCA
       
    • Device #6
      Type Cable Box
      Make/Model Arris XG1v3
      Input Connection(s) Coaxial
      Output Connection(s) HDMI

This lets you easily take stock of what you have, determine the number and types of cables you'll need, decide what is going where when it's time to connect everything, and generally organize your setup.

Draw a diagram

While this, too, can seem silly at first, it is key to understanding how everything connects. The best installers at movie theaters all have a 'map' drawn up simply showing where each part is, where it goes, and how it connects. When it comes to troubleshooting, adding a new device, or taking one away later, this will be the single most helpful document you have.

It can be as simple or as complex as you feel you need. In most cases, for a home theater, a simple diagram with your receiver in the center, and each device around it with colored, labeled lines indicating the type of connection used, arrows for inputs and outputs, and speakers involved is more than adequate.

3 Power Requirements

While you simply need to power every device in your home theater setup, thinking about how to protect your investment from power surges is also something to consider.

This is an area where a little planning goes a very long way:

  • How many devices will you be connecting?
    • If you have six total devices, a small four plug power strip will not suffice.
  • Will you want to expand and add more devices later?
    • Most people will end up adding to and expanding with more devices in the future. You'll want to have extra outlets available to accommodate your future needs.
  • Do you want an easy way to turn on and off your whole setup?
    • Some power delivery devices will have front-facing power switches, or readouts for how power delivery is happening.
  • What shape of plugs do you have?
    • While most devices have moved away from the large, boxy AC to DC adapters that stick out of the wall or hang off the socket, they can still pose a problem. Depending on the type of power delivery accessory you choose, these types of plugs might interfere with neighboring outlets. Some power delivery device manufacturers have taken this into account, and rotated the plugs to make it less of an issue.

All power delivery devices wear out over time. Some may wear out more slowly, but expect to have to replace this part of your system every couple of years to avoid problems.

Different types of Power Protection

There are 3 different types of power distribution and protection devices.

It can be extremely dangerous to connect one power delivery device to another, or 'daisy-chain' them. Always plug these devices directly into a wall outlet, and not into another power delivery device.

Outlet Duplicator / Power Strip
Power Strip
  • Very low cost.
  • Minimal, if any, protection. Most power surges are just passed through to your equipment which can damage or ultimately destroy them. Some models have a small fuse in them which is destroyed when a particularly strong surge occurs.
Surge Protectors
Surge Protector
  • Average cost.
  • Provides decent protection to your devices. Some of these types tend to offer some extra protection as well for cable lines or networking lines. Many come with simple warranties that protect against power surge damage should your devices incur any while connected to one of these.
Power Conditioners
Power Conditioner
  • Very high cost.
  • Provides not only decent protection, but also 'conditions' the power, so there's little if any noise or power fluctuations introduced to your equipment. While subjective and very dependent on what is coming to your equipment in the first place, some people feel it can help with picture and sound quality.
  • These tend to be aesthetically pleasing, and integrate well with modern home theater and surround sound setups.

4 Display Setup

  1. In most cases, most people prefer to use the simple, excellent HDMI connection between their home theater receiver and their TV. Plug one end into the back of your TV.

    Many TVs have multiple HDMI ports. Your receiver is going to control all of this, now. Just use the port for HDMI 1.

  2. Connect the other end of the cable to your receiver. You're looking for something labeled HDMI Out; it's usually a different color.

5 Language

Select your preferred language.

6 Speaker Setup

Most speakers will use very standard, simple 2-wire cables to connect them to your receiver.
Speaker Wire

  • Speaker wire has a polarity. In other words, it matters which side plugs in where. Most speaker wire will already be in a bundle of 2, and one of the cables will be a different color, or have a stripe of color or a label of some sort so you can identify them easily.
  • You will need one 'run' of cable (both wires) for each speaker. Make sure it is long enough to not only reach, but follow the contours of your room, and some extra for slack. This keeps them from being accidentally pulled out.
  • Depending on the model of the receiver you are using, the type of terminal you will plug your speaker wire into may vary.
  • Many receivers and speakers may allow for you to use something called banana plugs, which can be attached to the speaker wires before plugging them in to give a cleaner, easier to use, and more permanent solution for connecting your speakers to your receiver.

  • Turn on your home theater devices, and test them out.
  • Make sure you can watch premium TV.
  • Make sure you can watch a Blu-ray movie.
  • Make sure your game console works.
  • Make sure any audio devices, such as a record player, work.
  • Make sure the speakers are in the correct locations.
  • Test any other device you have setup as part of your home theater.

It is critical to perform this step before moving forward, as we will be cleaning up the cables behind, next. After this, while it is entirely possible to make changes, it is a much greater hassle.

We can now begin bundling together and making the cables behind your system neat and tidy.

You can use one, or multiple different methods to give the look, and accessibility you want to the wiring of your home theater system.

Cable bundling

Cable bundling will most likely be the first step in cleaning up the cables from your home theater installation.

Cable Ties

  • Sometimes called zip ties, these are plastic, with a groove on one side, and a simple locking mechanism on the other. After securing the cables, cut off the remaining end of the cable tie. Given their incredibly low price, they are disposable. When you need to add another cable, you cut the old one off, and just use a new one.
Cable ties

Velcro Straps

  • Much like cable ties, a simple Velcro strap has hooks on one side, felt on the other. The benefit is they can be easily un-bundled or added to, without cutting the strip and having to use another.
Velcro strip around a cable

Raceways

  • Sometimes called cable tunnels, these are for where cables are exposed, such as between your television and receiver, or going to your speakers. They place a cover over your cables to hide them in an aesthetically pleasing way. Many have little notches to lock your cables into.
Raceway

Leave slack at your bundle points.
Do not tighten down any strap too much, you want some give and movement in case something shifts, and you don't want to accidentally cut, bend, crimp, or otherwise damage your cables.

Adhesive Pads
Small, sticky pads to attach your bundles to. Some come built into various straps or ties, some are reusable, such as adhesive putty.

Do not bundle power cables with any other cables. 
Power, by its very nature, creates an electromagnetic field when flowing through a cable. This can severely degrade quality for other cables they are bundled with, especially speaker wire. It's best to keep these as far away from other cables as possible, in their own bundle, for example.

Label Everything

During your bundling process, it's often a good idea to use small labels near the ends of each cable, just in case you need to disconnect something in the future. You can use a label printer to make these, but a small strip of masking tape works just as well.

For example, on your Blu-ray player's HDMI cable, a little loop of tape saying "Blu-ray" where it connects to your Blu-ray player, and where it connects to the receiver, can help you immensely should you replace the player, or the receiver, somewhere down the line. Likewise for power cables.
