HDMI or Optical best for TV audio?


They are basically the same as both are digital. The advantage of HDMI is that you get video and audio over just one cable.

How to hookup all the units ,cable, vcr, dvd , tv.,and receiver


It all depends on what you have for inputs on TV really. Any video components should be hooked directly to TV via, best, HDMI, next, component. Component has great video but doesn't carry audio, for audio, you would have to use separate cable(s), digital optical being best. The best scenario would be to run cable/sat, dvr, etc, to TV then hook TV audio out, via digital optical, to reciever. You would use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, would have one audio out to reciever. Some, if not most recievers have video pass through but, it's not the best route and, you have more connections and more margin for error.

All 5 speakers work on test mode but on surround sound the left and right rear speakers are not working. How can this be?


Hello Ruby,

This is because your receiver is not in the correct surround sound mode for the number of channels being sent from the audio source, i.e. your TV or DVD player. It is likely your receiver is set for Dolby Digital (DD). You will need to switch your receiver to a Dolby Pro Logic (PL or PL II) setting to get audio from the rear speakers using your current audio source.

If you are unsure how to do this, please reply to me with the brand and model of the receiver. Some receivers have a "Surround Mode" button on the front of the unit or the remote. If you want to include further details of your setup, I can also give you some advice on attaining the best audio quality with the equipment you are using. You may be able to get Dolby Digital surround by changing some audio settings on the audio source or using a different connection.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I hooked up a new lg hd tv via hdmi through my digital cable box. I am not receiving true surround sound, only dolby II. I have my box digitally hooked up to the receiver and the HDTV digitally hooked up...


It's possible that the TV broadcast isn't in true surround, and is only dolby encoded.
You can try going back to the component hookups, but I am not sure that will solve your issue.

I have a new rca receiver and have it hooked up to my dvd player which works fine. I have it hooked into my tv and Im not getting sesurround through my tv how can I connect to the tv to make it work my tv...


Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.

TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

Denon AVR-688 Dolby Digital issues


IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO CONNECT ANALOG AUDIO IN ADDITION TO THE OPTICAL, COAXIAL OR HDMI AUDIO CONNECTION. IF USING OPTICAL OR COAXIAL CONNECTIONS BE SURE TO CONFIGURE IT IN THE RECEIVERS DIGITAL ASSIGNMENT AREA IN SETUP.
ALSO, ON THE FRONT OF THE RECEIVER IS AN INPUT MODE BUTTON, PRESS THIS BUTTON UNTIL AUTO IS DISPLAYED

No Audio when I play Blu-Ray discs with Dolby TrueHD


For dolby digital to work you have to have the optical or coax cable hooked up to the reciever ,The HDMI cable is for digital video and audio output but does not support dolby digital out the cable into your reciever , so just turn off the dolby digital on your reciever and you should hear the sound.
here is more info

Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless multi-channel audio codec developed by Dolby Laboratories which is intended primarily for high-definition home-entertainment equipment such as Blu-ray Disc. It is the successor to the AC-3 Dolby Digital surround sound codec which was used as the audio standard for DVD discs. In this application, Dolby TrueHD competes with DTS-HD Master Audio, another lossless codec from Digital Theater System.
Dolby TrueHD uses Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) as its mathematical basis for compressing audio samples. MLP was used on the earlier DVD-Audio format, but details of TrueHD and DVD-Audio differ substantially. A Dolby TrueHD bitstream can carry up to 14 discrete sound channels. Sample depths up to 24 bits/sample and audio sample rates up to 192 kHz are supported. Like the more common legacy codec Dolby Digital, TrueHD bitstreams carry program metadata. Metadata is separate from the coding format and compressed audio samples, but stores relevant information about the audio waveform. For example, dialog normalization and Dynamic range compression are controlled by metadata embedded in the TrueHD bitstream.
