how can I get my surround speakers to play when watching regular TV. Mine only plays when I am using my DVD player
 
If you have a set top box that tunes the channels for you then you need to connect this to your surround system. How you do this will vary depending on the box and system. Check and see what types of audio outs you have ie analog L/R, Digital Audio (either coax or optical). If you do not have a box then your TV probably has an optical digital audio out and you would need to connect this to your surround system.
