Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

Pioneer VSX-D608 Optical connection

I have a Pioneer VSX-D608 receiver and can't find my manual for it. What I can't seem to figure out is what settings I need to use to get my XBOX 360 (or even my TV) to connect via the optical cable. I have plugged both devices into the receiver and pushed all the different buttons on the front panel and just can't seem to get any output through the speakers.

    Yes I do have the remote. I was wondering about that and was looking at it this weekend. I was pushing all kinds of buttons, but had no idea what any of them did. Still couldn't get it to work.



    Thanks in advance...Step by step would be extremely helpful.

    Hi samz11, I have the same problem as ChadLV. I need to hook up an optical cable from my Playstation 3 to the Pioneer VSX-D608 reciever. I have the remote but not the manual, so if you could send me the instructions for hooking up the optical cable I would be gratefull.



    Thanks in advance

    I'm experiencing the same problem with the optical input to the av receiver. No sound goes out of the box? So i just opted to install a co axial cable. Somebody told me that I won't get the same benefits with this.

The manual states that the default association of each digital input in as follows:

  • Optical 1: CD
  • Optical 2: MD
  • Optical 3: TV
  • Coax: DVD
Use the "Signal select" button to set the receiver to use a digital input, and the Dolby/DTS button (above "Signal select") to enable decoding.

As samz11 stated above, a remote is required to alter the digital input mapping.

Do you have the original remote for the receiver? You need the remote to set up the optical settings according to the manual there is a fair bit of things to do to set it up reply if you do have the remote then I will post up word for word on how to change the settings but without the remote you basically cant do much with it sorry

hope this helps

How to connect speakers logitech z 5500 to the TV Samsung UN32F5500 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim Smart LED


Hello there!
I have seen manuals of both the systems. You have two options to connect Logitech z5500 speakers to Samsung UN32F5500 TV.
1. With Optical Audio Cable.

0daa0bcc-2410-4f3f-9f1b-001ec53d8ec3.jpg

2. Stereo Ear Phone Connection.
Simply plug in Green earphone cable of Logitech Speakers to Green Audio out Jack described on Page 7 of the TV manual. If you are using stereo EP you may not experience 5.1sound separation. And it is also mentioned that you should not use other two audio cables of the tri-EP-cable provided with Logitech speakers.

Have a nice day!

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)
