Question about JVC RX-D201 Receiver

Not getting digital sound from dbs or dvd

I have the appropriate cables connected (optical for my motorola dvr box, and the digital coax for my dvd player). I have the dvr connected to the dbs in on my receiver with component cables. I have my dvd player connected to the dvr/dvd in on my receiver with component cables as well. When i first hooked everything up, i was getting the digital sound, but no video. I am now able to get the video after i switched what inputs were coming in on the appropriate channels, but I can not get the digital sound signal. Is this automatically picked up by the receiver when something if connected? Like i said, when it was first hooked up my display said digital for the sound on the receiver, but then i had to struggle with getting the video to show. What can i try in order to get this to work? Thanks in advance for any help someone might be able to give me.

I just purchased a Sony flat screen tv and need advice on what wires I need to connect my Denon AVR-3300 to it or to the dish cable box? My remote has these options on the remote to listen in...


Your reciever has three digital optical inputs so, what it comes down to is how many thing do you want to hook up and what input/otput do you have on your TV. Best case scenario would be to hook your cable box directly to your TV Via HDMI out, if you have HD, on your cable box to Sat/cable input on your TV. Next best would be using componenet cables for video and digital optical for audio. Last would be RCA(yellow, white and red, from Cable box to TV input. Then, you would connect your TV to receiver via(best) digital optical, or RCA. You can try to patch the video through the reciever using component or RCA to TV/DBS on receiver then out to TV but. alot of times you will lose the video in the transfer and it uses more cables, thus more margiin for error. You would set your TV menu to cable/sat and your reciever to which ever input you choose.

I have a SA 8300HD cable box connected to Yamaha RX-V2500 receiver using Digital Audio Out from cable box to DVR/VCR2 on the receiver. It had been working for 2 years. Then this past weekend it stopped...


Pretty good problem description.

Make sure the DVR/VCR2 digital input is assigned to the Cable box.

When the DVR/VCR2 input is selected do you get any front panel indicators on the Yamaha that indicate a good digital bitstream?

Try swapping the cable box output to the working DVD In connection to isolate it to either the source or the receiver's ability to decode it.

Check the audio output settings for the Cable Box, too. Sometimes their outputs are adjustable. It may be muted or set too low.

I have an audio problem with my TX-SR502.


If your remote also controls the Cable Box you might want to look at its audio settings. Maybe you muted it.

BTW: it would be a good idea to also run video and analog audio from the cable box directly to the TV if it has speakers so you can watch and listen independent of the Onkyo.

Problems with optical input. I am having intermittent problems with the optical sound input on my Onkyo. I am using a DVR with optical output for the source. Sometimes when I turn the DVR and Onkyo on I...


sometimes with cable, satellite, or any dvr, the digital signal actually is intermittent and there is little we can do about it but add an analog audio connection for each device as a backup. per se, and put the receiver in auto input mode. the receiver will utilize the analog signal to fill in where the digital signal fails
good luck

Sony DG510 - Not Getting surround sound out of Cable


Did you try it on BOTH the SAT and Video 2 optical ports? Still not working? Could be the Optical cable is bad.

Does your Cable Box also have a coaxial digital ouput? It looks just like a standard RCA connector but says Digital somewhere near it. Try one conductor of a standard audio cable from it to the "DVD" coax connector. Select DVD to hear it.

If it still doesn't work jump into the Cable Box setup to make sure it's output is set up properly.

I would recommend using the coaxial digital option if you have it.
1) The cable isn't special or expensive like the optical cable is; a garden-variety RCA cable works just fine.
2) You have virtually unlimited distance to work with in the house.
3) You don't have to be so darned careful with it as with optical.

TV has no picture but has sound


Did you say you went in to DVR set-up and checked the component out audio option? I have had similiar problems with motorola dvr boxes and once I was able to enable audio output option the dvr digital output was fine. Find the manual for the model dvd and this may cure.

Connecting new tv to DRA-685


you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

No HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???


the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv
