MAKE SURE THE RCA JACKS ARE RUNNING FROM "AUDIO OUT" OF TV TO "AUDIO IN" ON VIDEO 1 ON RECEIVER, THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE SOUND...(IF THIS IS BACKWORDS YOU WON'T HAVE SOUND.) THAT'S HOW OURS IS HOOKED UP AND WORKS PERFECT.

I have 2 good qaulity heybrook speakers and have tried everything to connect them properly such that both play sound when the tv / dvd is on. Both speakers work perfectly one at a time and both work...


You're guessing. That is exactly the wrong thing to do. Get the manual.

"[D]vd 6 channel input" is for a 6-channel analog input as the name implies. I doubt you even have a source that HAS 6 analog channel outputs.

Speakers are OUTPUTS of the amplifers' speaker posts. Any one can work ANYwhere.

And that bi-wire capability, IF the speakers have it - pretend it isn't there.

How do we listen to aCD in 5 channel suround sound without having the TV on we can only get straight sound. We have a Yamaha RX-V365 av receiver.


Do you listen to audio CDs via a CD player or DVD player? Pure audio CD is only 2-channel, so either TV or the DVD player is doing the mix to 5 channels. But you can choose the sound mode via remote - there should be modes like 5ch/7ch stereo, where the same signal is going to all speakers (I you this mode for listening to radio sometimes).

Add more speaker to dvd player/s-air suround sond system


I have revisted this question and I *think* you are talking about a "speaker selector". A speaker selector is a unit that prevents an amp or receiver from going into safe mode or shutting down.

No sound out of right main when watching DVR/TV or VHS


When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.

Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.

If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.

Vocals missing while playing with 2 speakers


Go to the amp "Basic Setup" and alter basic setup according to
- the size of the room (details in the manual)
- alter the no. of channels e.g. if you have only 2 front speakers, change the channels to 2.1 (.1 for the subwoof)
- Once the setup is changed, the amp pumps in sound according to the set up

All the best

Onkyo TX-SR304


Onkyo offers access to manuals at their web site. HERE is a link to the receiver line.

Personally, I'd connect the speakers to main left/right. The subwoofer to subwoofer out. The Go VIdeo unit to VCR/Video 1, the cable box to Video 2 and the video output to the Sony TV composite input. No need to connect the TV audio out to the receiver since the audio feed comes from the cable box.
