Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

1 Answer

HDMI out to Olevia 527 TV = Blue Screen

Hi, the subject line says it all: I've got a dvd player hooked to the receiver using composite connection, and then HDMI out from the receiver to the only HDMI in on my Olevia TV. The HDMI is working enough that I can use the on-screen guide from the receiver, but I can't get the picture from my dvd player to appear. (DVD does work if I hook up the tv to receiver via composite.) Any ideas?

    I have the same problem when I hook up my Onkyo TX-SR606 to my Sony XBR4. The source inputs are a mix of s-video and composite. Do the sources have to be HDMI to use an HDMI cable to output to the TV? I chose the HDMI cable to be prepared for the event that I upgrade my components to all have HDMI outputs. As of right now they do not. Thanks for any assistance.

Hi beelzyboob.. try checking these.. since you are using the RCA (composite cables) and I assume you have them on the "DVD in" at the back, go to setup, go to input assignment and go to hdmi input. here, make sure dvd is set to" ----". Next, hit return and go down to component input and also check if dvd is set to "-----". With these settings, you should get video. This is because you are not using either an HDMI or component cable. hope this helps.. ^_^

Where to hook up white/yellow input wires from receiver to panasonic TC-P50S2. HAVE audio no video feed on tv


Usually DVD players have either composite or component video out (unless you are using HDMI connections). That means you need three or five RCA plugs connected between the devices.

The usual pattern when using a receiver would be to connect the Red/White RCA cables between the receiver and the DVD player audio out. Then connect the Yellow (composite) or Red, Green, and Blue (Pb, Pr, Y component) video cables between the TV and the DVD player. Make sure the connections match at each end; with component video, it can be easy to mix them up. Not all receivers have composite or component video outputs available to the TV. The Composite video will go to the yellow connector at Video In 1 on the TV. The Component video would go to Component In 1 or 2.

Since you don't mention the model of the receiver or how that is connected to the TV, I can't be sure why you have no video. If you have an HDMI connection between the TV and the receiver, the receiver won't convert the signal from composite/component video to HDMI.

The alternative method of connecting everything would be to connect the DVD player to the TV (both the audio and video), then use the optical digital audio connection from the TV to the receiver or to a digital to analog audio converter and then to the receiver.

Please add a comment with the rest of your A/V equipment for a more solution.

I hope this helps.

Can i hook up a satellite reciever and a dvd player to this unit? if so, how?


Yes. According to the manual: http://www.curtisint.com/html/custservice/manuals/CUR_LCD1992A_EN.PDF this unit has HDMI, Composite (Yellow, White & Red) and Component (Red Green & Blue) inputs.

Assuming that your satellite receiver has HDMI, use that cable to connect to the back of the TV. Then use the Yellow, White and Red to connect the DVD player. Use the source button on the remote to toggle among the inputs.

I Have just bought this reviever (Yamaha Rx-v365)and im just trying to work out how to best connect all my devises. I have Tivo, Lg DVD player with both yellow, red white cables and blue green red cable...


Hi, firstly some terminology:
yellow cable - video composite (worst quality)
white/red - stereo analog audio
blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)

You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.

If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.

For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.

For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.

How to hook up a game console to an Olevia 232-T12


It all depends on your game console.

You can connect most to the Component, Composite, or HDMI inputs.

For modern consoles, use HDMI cables or provided Composite cables.

HDMI = Single cable and single plug (Best)
Component = Red, Green, Blue, Red, and White plugs (Average)
Composite = Yellow, Red, and White plugs (Worst, used for most older consoles and older TVs)

Hook up of dvd to tv


hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv


You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.

You can use the following:

TV Connections:

  3. HDMI -
DVD Player Connections:

  1. Composite (red, white, yellow) - comes standard.
  2. Component (red, blue, green) if you have it.
  3. HDMI - if you have it
You can use any of those to connect the dvd player to the tv. You can use the remainder to connect the satilite box.
