I am not sure I have set up properly. I can get sound from my DVD recorder but I cannot get picture. I am sure it is just something to do with a wrong cord put somewhere, it is frustrating me to no end. I have put from my DVD to the receiver, component cords, optical audio.....from my receiver to my tv, tv to monitor out????? Please help. Mel

DVD should be connected to an input on your tv not the monitor out.

I am trying to install DVD player/recorder to my sony strdh510 reciever get the sound but no picture. I plug the dvd as per manural green/blue/red out to DVD in green/blue/red what am I doing wrong

It appears you are trying to connect via "component" video - green (Y), red (Pr), and blue (Pb). Make sure the settings on the Sony is set to component - NOT composite. You can try composite - the yellow to yellow jack (from the DVD to receiver or TV), to see if that works, but make sure your settings are for composite. The audio are red and white, right and left respectively and are used for both schemes above.

We recently purchased an AVR 146 receiver and have attempted to connect our DVR satellite receiver, a DVD player/recorder and our Hitachi (non HD) TV, plus a surround sound system to it. The surround sound...


This is how the connection is suppose to be, DVR "OUT", to TV "IN" using the RCA plugs, then press AV on the TV. If this is how you connected it, then maybe there is something wrong with the video wire (Yellow).

As for the DVD, you need to connect an Audio wire separately because the component Red + Green + Blue wire only stands for video. Audio is Red and White, this must be connected for you to get sound from the DVD.

To connect the Audio for your DVD player, connect Red and White wire to Audio "OUT" of your DVD player, to "AUX" in of your AVR 146 receiver, then select AUX on your receiver and sound will come out from your DVD through the receiver.

I hope this is not complicated for you. This connection is simple, all you need is to understand the basics which is OUT and IN. If you want to watch DVD on your TV, this means the DVD will be good OUT to IN of the DVD. The same goes for audio.

If you don't understand, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

Good luck.

Make sure that the volume is not muted or too low on the TV...the TV volume output to your receiver will be performing the function of a pre-amp to your receiver. Then select the appropriate input on the receiver that you have the TV audio connected to.

The Yamaha RX-V463 AV does not playsound from the blue ray player

"I am also having difficulties in try to display the yamaha set up menu on the tv."
According to the manual the display menu for TV will not work with HDMI hook up.
I also have a Panasonic HD TV and can't get TV sound through my Yamaha AVR on "TV Sound" mode.  Trying to use HDMI cable for this also.  Do I need a digital optical cable or do I not have something set right?

No picture on tv

This unit upconverts all video inputs to component output, so connect all your devices to your denon audio and video inputs and component video out of the denon to the tv component in and all should work fine

Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound Speakers

The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.

Lost picture on my AVR-2807

There is a video select button on the receiver. Press it and it toggles through all of the video sources. Keep pressing it until the display says video=source.

Everything was working fine, tonight i turned on my denon and i no longer have a picture on tv1 if i change the source to dvd i have a picture but no sound. i am trying to watch tv through my dvd player....

First, check if all your cables are still properly connected, specially when it was working fine, this seems to be the most logical explanation. Otherwise set the Denon back to factory settings and see if that helps.
