I bought a Sharp Aquos HDTV. Am trying to use a digital co-ax cable to run tv thru my reciever. I get no sound. there is only 1 place on each device to hook up this cable. Any suggestions?

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

Good Luck

With the use of rca/video cables and the Samsung composite cable, how do I connect to an audio/video receiver(surround sound)

There are alot of different options when it comes to your connection basically , it comes down to quality and what in and out jacks are available to use. To me 'composite cables" were always the red, white, yellow combo where, yellow is video and red and white are l/r sound. "Component cables" were always red blue and green. The component cable provides a higher quality picture but, does not carry sound, like composite. To gain sound using component cables, you have to add either your yellow composite or a digital optical cable, again, depending on what your system will accept. HDMI carries both audio and video at the best quality and is easy. To answer the question for what you have if you have "composite"(red, blue,green) this will provide the best picture but, you will have to use the red and white "composite" for sound.

I have just brought a rx-v367 av reciever and have connected it to my tv/ speakers. speakers work fine when testing set up. however there is no sound coming out when connected to tv. also it keeps coming...

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.


Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable

Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.

Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.

Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.

Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.

Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.

Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

How do I connect my Sony PS3 with HDMI and component sound with Kenwood VR-606

Component outputs do not provide sound. Component CABLES however can be used as a rather equal alternative to analog cables for audio.

Your receiver does not have connections for component, nor HDMI. You can however still connect your PS3 to it for audio by any one of its three digital inputs. It only has S-video and does not upconvert video signals so I recommend against making any video connections to it. Connect the PS3 video directly to your television for whichever video input it is compatible with High definition video. This method will always provide the best picture.

Using monster

Hi, You will need to go into the menu of the AVR to change a few settings. To get into the menu -
  1. Make sure you are on an input of the TV that is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO output of the AVR (I imagine you already have this hooked up)
  2. Using the Denon remote that came with the 1907, filp it to the back side and open the door that covers more buttons.
  3. Press the System Setup button
  4. Go into the AUDIO SETUP
  5. Make sure the DIGITAL INPUT ASSIGNED is set to none for the audio input you wish to use for the PS3.
  6. Going back a menu to VIDEO SETUP, make sure that the COMPONENT VIDEO you are using is assigned to the AUDIO INPUT you are using.
That should fix your problem. If you need more clarification or this did not work feel free to post that on this question. Good Luck

Get ''not supported ''message on vx-1018-ah

Verify this is a Pioneer VSX-1018AH.

The manual explains it all... The problem is probably an incompatible setting on your source.

Search for "not support" in the manual...

I think this may do it... From Page 86...

No picture or sound. • This receiver is HDCP-compatible. Check that the components you are connecting are also HDCPcompatible.
If they are not, please connect them using the component or composite video jacks.
• Depending on the connected source component, it’s possible that it will not work with this receiver
(even if it is HDCP-compatible). In this case, connect using the component or composite video jacks
between source and receiver.
• If the problem still persists when connecting your HDMI component directly to your monitor,
please consult the component or monitor manual or contact the manufacturer for support.
• If video images do not appear on your TV or flat panel TV, try adjusting the resolution, DeepColor
or other setting for your component.
If ‘NOT SUPPORT’ appears in the receiver’s display, try adjusting the resolution, DeepColor or
other setting for your component.
• While analog video signals are being output over HDMI, use a separate connection for audio
• When this receiver reproduces MULTI CH IN audio sources with the HDMI setting set to
THROUGH, you cannot hear audio output from all channels. In this case, make a digital or analog
audio connection.
• To output signals in DeepColor, use an HDMI cable (high speed HDMI cable) to connect this
receiver to a component or TV with the DeepColor feature.

Check the HDMI Control (Page 65-66 of the manual). It only works with Pioneer Flat Panel TV's. Also check Page 83 for "No image is output..."

No image is output when an
input is selected.
• Check the video connections of the source component (see page 18).
For high-definition video (using component video connections), or when digital video conversion
is switched off (in Setting the Video options on page 72), you must connect your TV to this receiver
using the same type of video cable as you used to connect your video component.
• Make sure the input assignment is correct for components connected using component or HDMI
cables (see The Input Setup menu on page 67).
• Check the video output settings of the source component.
• Check that the video input you selected on your TV is correct.
Some components (such as video game units) have resolutions that may not be converted. If
adjusting this receiver’s Resolution setting (in Setting the Video options on page 72) and/or the
resolution settings on your component or display doesn’t work, try switching Digital Video
Conversion (in Setting the Video options on page 72) OFF

Cant get the wiring figured out.........

TV is HD correct? Use the Y/CB/CR from the Sat to the TV. Use the Digital optical cable for sound from the sat to the receiver. Use the s-video from the dvd player to the tv and the l/r to the receiver for sound. I would suggest upgrading to another set of Y/CB/CR cables to connect your dvd to the TV and benefit from better picture. Also, buy another optical cable for dvd sound (so you can enjoy surround sound). Your receiver has two optical inputs so youre covered there.

Surround sound


Your receiver is capable of video conversion, so there should be no problem using your component cable.

Does your TV accept component, or only S-Video? If you can run component to your TV, the best quality signal path would be using a component cable from your Verizon box to your receiver, and component from your receiver to your TV.

Make sure you have set up the video input correctly, so that it is set to accept the incoming signal on the correct sockets.
