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 dont wish to assume that when you say receiver, you mean sattelite or cable. Since you may be trying to hook this up to a surround sound reciever...
Let me also clarify, if this is the case, the receiver needs to be turned on AND the selection signal device set to TV or AUX wherever it is you've connected the TV.
Now by receiver, if you actually meant cable or sat box, then the Ext antena from that service connects to that units ANT IN.
Then from there on that unit ANT OUT to your TV SIGNAL IN.
If you want the external surround sound and have the connectors for this. Then you need to send them OUT to the Stereo/Surround receiver TV IN.
Now having said that and assuming that your TV does not have the Red and White Audio RCA connectors... Your Sat or Cable box does... You connect those to the surround sound Receiver Audio IN
Hopefully you'll find this useful.
If this has not answered the situation. Please feel free to come back and provide all components your working with. Surround reciever, Sat, cable, DVD, VCR whatever etc. etc... I'd be more than glad to help you through this
hello,if your using rca plugs from the cable box than dolby digital 5.1 will not be present. You need to use either an optical or coax or hdmi cable from source to the reciever to recieve digital audio.
This is a cable box problem. Could be a lack of signal stregnth or bad HDMI output.
The SA boxes have a very bad history of this, try using the component video output and see if the problem persists.
The HDMI is a real glass jaw of those boxes; but this problem could absolutly be your incoming signal...high def channels require more signal strength and that is what causes audio drops, pixilation and flicker.
If it was the HDMI in the receiver/tv you would get:
- Black screen, Pink fuzz or green streak dropouts. - "Fireflies" - Audio cutting in and out - Not pixilation!
So what is my approach? If the box is rented or under warranty get it replaced. If the problem persists then call your cable company and arrange a service call at their expense.
If the box is not under warrenty go ahead and call the cable company and complain about a poor signal. If the signal is good, use the component video output...it looks almost identical anyway.
You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.
There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.
re seat the HDMI board and SOUND processor board from the back it's the board sitting on the left side in a vertical possition and has a wide ribbon cable connected to the main panel in the front. take the board out and the HDMI one has to come out first. it's sit's on top and connect's to this board and the MAin board underneat . good luck.
I could not get my TV to recognize an S-video signal from my reciever either. I ended up just bypassing the reciever and running the video straight from the cable box to the TV. It might be a better option anyways as some quality is lost if you run it through the reciever.
