    Dear Ginko ,


    Thank you for your response . I should note that there is no television as such . The image is projected on a drop down screen from an overhead projector . This is true regardless of the selected input : DVD , VCR/DVR , CBL/SAT , etc .


    Thank You .


    Respectfully ,

    Dear Sir/Madam :





    Regarding the above -referenced ONKYO HOME THEATER SYSTEM , I wish to add the following :





    The video problem persists to the present . However , the overhead projector appears to be functioning properly . It projects the word " OPTIMA " on the drop-down screen . However , when the system is tuned to a television channel , the audio is once again present , but no video . On the lower right side of the screen the following words appear : " SEARCHING FOR SOURCE " or " SOURCE CANNOT BE LOCATED . " The same is true when I insert a DVD in the DVD PLAYER . Additionally , I cannot call up the menu for the DVD PLAYER on the drop-down screen .



    Your observations will be appreciated .







    Thank You .







    Respectfully ,







    John P. DeSalvo

Try resetting the unit by holding down the VCR/DVR button and pressing the STANDBY ON button and see if that helps..

    Check if the cables are connected to the correct cables. Your unit cannot play between formats. Also make sure that it is not set to "pure audio mode". Make sure the input selection is correct on your projector.
    You should be looking to adjust the "Output" and not "Input" selection on your theatre system, if the source is the theatre system.

    Here is a manual for your unit which should explain things more clearly:

This leads us to the Onkyo CS-V720's generous connectivity suite. You can hook up a power amplifier and a powered subwoofer to the receiver's preout jacks to get full 5.1-channel sound from DVDs, DVD-As, and SACDs. You also get two sets of analog audio inputs and one out, so you can simultaneously hook up a digital audio player (an iPod, for example) and another external device. A full complement of video outputs (composite, S-Video, and component) and an optical digital audio input round out the rear panel.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

    Let me know what cables you are using to connect the receiver to the tv, if you are using RCA cables ensure that RCA video (the yellow one ) is connected in the right way at the back of the system, going to TV video input.

    I understood you are using the Onkyo HT-SR800 as a receiver, how do you connect it to the projector?
    If you use RCA cables , check the yellow one.

    Switch the source selector manually, using either the remote or the buttons on top of the projector.

When playing a blueray movie I can hear back ground music and noise but not the people talking


For this particular problem, you have a mismatch between your Blueray player and your home theater system. It sounds like your Blueray has the audio set to Dolby Digital which has most of the dialog correlated to the Center Channel Speaker and your home theater system set to stereo. Once you get the two talking the same language, so to speak, you will be able to hear the dialog.

If you have both Digital connections such as Digital Audio RCA or Digital Optical Toslink as well as Analog L/R audio connected to your HT system, you can remove on or the other and trouble shoot from there.

I hope this information is helpful for your system fix.

How do I hook up my new HT-X50 home theater system to my Verizon HD "Motorola" cable box that my sony wega hd tv is hooked up to, so I can get tv shows and dvds to work with my home theater...


Hi evilfan,

If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......

Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.
c7a0670.jpg
All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can i connect dmp-bd871 to a home theater system


It will depend on your home theater system and TV. If your system accepts HDMI in from other devices and HDMI out to the TV, connect an HDMI cable from the blue-ray player to an HDMI input on home theater system. Then connect another HDMI cable between the home theater system and the TV. This will provide the best video and audio experience.

Another option is connect the HDMI cable from the Blue-ray player to the TV. Connect the audio output of the TV to the home theater system. (This will depend on the TV as well as the home theater system. Some TVs have digital audio outputs; others have analog outputs. If your home theater system doesn't have the same input as the TV's output, you would need a converter as well as the digital and analog audio cables. This is an example of one for digital to analog: http://www.gefen.com/kvm/dproduct.jsp?prod_id=4907 .)

If you do not want to get the best picture from the Blue-ray player and your home theater system has analog audio inputs, you can connect the composite video out to the TV. Then connect the audio outputs from the player to your home theater system. (This means only an SD picture will be provided to your TV.)

Panasonic has the manual for the DMP-BD871 here: service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMPBD871-MUL.PDF .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the other devices in your entertainment system or their inputs/outputs. Then I can add specific information for your system and any tips for setting up the system.

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))
