CaRC not working on my vsx823


With some of these elaborate setups, the receiver overrides your settings and connections to configure a default arrangement for certain functions. The rationale for this is often buried obscurely in the equipment instructions. You may have to resort to trial and error, connect and disconnect to get a satisfactory result.

Connect Sharp LCD tv to Onkyo TX8011 Receiver


The Onkyo TX8011 is a Stereo Receiver. Two ways to connect:
1) The HD Cable box should have an audio out (typically red and white). Connect this to the Obnkyo CD input (red and white). The volume may be controlled with the Cable box remote or Onkyo remote. The TV volume may be muted or ON.

2) Connect LCD TV's audio out to Onkyo TX8011's CD input.
This is not a great way to set up, as the TV volume, when moved high, will attenuate (over load) the amplifier, leading to a jarring sound on the speakers. To avoid this, the TV volume should be ALWAYS FIXED low.. say about 30%. Only the Onkyo's volume should be adjusted while watching.

Hope this helps.

Programming time warner remote to boston tvee volume


I had just about given up on programming my Time Warner universal remote with my Boston Soundbar until a mental lightbulb came on. This is a two step process. Step 1: Program your Time Warner remote (I have CLIKR-5, instructions available for other models at timewarner.com) Using Pre-Programmed 3-digit Code method -Turn on soundbar - Press device button (I chose AUX) and OK/Select simultaneously until device button stays lit. - Point remote control toward the soundbar and enter code (447 for Boston Acoustics) - Press the device button again to store the code. The TW instructions say you should now be able to turn the device off to verify that it works, but this is not true for the soundbar. Hang in there with me. Step 2: Program your remote from the Boston Soundbar. - Press the power button and the volume up button simultaneously until the indicator light flashes orange. Here's where the instructions provided with the soundbar fail to explain how to do this. Each button is individually programmed into the TW remote. What you have done so far is enable the remote to accept the programming. - Volume Up: press the volume up button on the soundbar while it is flashing, the light should become steadily orange. - While holding the remote steady about a foot away from the soundbar, slowly press the volume up button on the TW remote four times. The orange light should flicker each time you do, turning green when completed. - Volume Down, Mute, Power: repeat the steps for Volume Up, except press the button on the soundbar you wish program to the TW remote while the soundbar is flashing orange. It should become steady before you press the corresponding button on the TW remote. Good luck, I hope this helps. -Deidre.

What is the best way to hook receiver to my tv, there is not a lot of sound coming from my stereo when rca's are being used


elco1968,

Your best option would be to use hdmi cables. hdmi cables does digital video and digital sound.
If your still not getting enough volume. You need to check your receiver for the separate volumes for the fronts, rears, and mids if your running 7.1. If you are using more then one remote make sure you check all the volumes on all remotes as well. Thanks for visiting Fixya.com. Have a great day !

I have a AVR-591. I hooked everything up and all works great. The only thing I want to know is when I turn off the receiver I have no TV. How do I bypass the receiver so I can watch TV without the reciever...


You said the magic word - BYPASS.

Your TV source is probably a cable or sat box. They usually have multiple audio and video OUTputs and most TV's have multiple audio and video INputs.

Run the box's analog RCA Audio Out to the TV (assuming it has speakers). Set the box's internal volume setting (if it has one) to FIXED and modulate theTV volume with ITS control.

HI-DEF:

Lacking sufficient hi-def inputs on the TV, I'd elect for Component Video from the box and HDMI from your BD player, if you have one. Cable video is bit-rate compromised while BD source is NOT so BD should get the best connection.

I personally have NO high-end video going into my receiver and no high-end audio going to my TV. Why bother with hops?

Suddenly my yamaha Rx-v2300 only works to provide sound at nearly full volume to get any sound at all. This then comes with a background buzz. This only occurs while getting cable TV signal, using other...


I'm assuming you have a cable converter box (set-top box) that you have hooked to your receiver. Check the box volume using the cable company's remote control. These boxes frequently have variable audio output, and if you turn the volume down on the box you'll have the symptom you're describing. When you press the volume up or down buttons on the remote, you'll usually see a volume bar on the TV screen. As you raise the volume, there may be a point marked by an arrow, which is where you should set the volume. On some boxes, when you get to a certain level the words "best stereo" appear, and that's where to set it. If your box doesn't have some indication like this just leave the volume set 3/4 or full up. Then the volume on the receiver should function properly with the cable TV input.

Connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589


Hello,
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.

Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output

Sound control is via TV remote only


You didnot mention wehther you selected external speakers on you tv. If your TV allows this then do that, first.

Also the sound input to your TV must come from some source, (cable/ Sat). You could remove the audio inputs to your TV and only allow the audio to go to your Receiver.

RCA cables will allow this to be easy just remove the red and white audio to your TV. If you have sent them to your reciever then you must balance the cable box volume (reduce to the lowest level , then raise your recievers vol until satisfied if you are to loud when you switch to a CD then raise TV vol until they match, so your CD doesn't play to loud when switching modes)

If you are using an HDMI cable to your tv than there has to be a setup for turning off the internal speakers on your TV.

Analog RCA input to HDMI output?


You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.
