Question about Pioneer VSX-516-K

1 Answer

Overloading I recently bought a 61" pj samsung tv. I hooked it up to my receiver to listen to football games in 5.1. However, the receiver stays on for maybe a minute and turns off flashing at me that it is overloading. How can it be overloading when all i have is a DVD player and a tv hooked up to the receiver? I have only had the receiver for 5 months and now i can't even listen to the radio without it overloading. How do i fix it this? Thank you, Devon

Re: Overloading

What speakers are you using? Are they seperate from the TV set? How is the audio attached to the TV set. What inputs I mean are you using for the speakers and the sound for the TV set?

Cant get speakers to work

Normally I see most of the Onkyo units have game inputs for a/v. I am sure you have connected them to the right inputs. The output to the speakers, let's say you have external speakers, depends on the listening modes. You may want to go to the modes and go up/down through them to see if ;you can get audio that way. If your not successful you could run your game to the tv and the run the TV output L/R audio back to the receiver. That should send all TV audio to the receiver.

Hook your X Box into the Receiver HDMI input with your HDMI cable and another HDMI cable from the HDMI out on the receiver to the HDMI input on your TV.

You might just have a handshaking issue between your PS3 and your receiver. See if there are any firmware upgrades for your PS3, Receiver or both. This usually takes care of the problem. If not - your receiver has a 2 or 3 year MFG Warranty. Have it checked out or exchanged.

I have a RX-V1000 Yamaha Receiver. I recently added on speakers for my back yard, but would like to run them independent of the receiver. Meaning I don't want to have to have speakers in the house on...

Any Tape Out (REC) is flat Line Level output for any analog source selected by the RX-V1000.

Or you could just set up Zone 2 as on Page 61 in the manual - with or without the remote capability.

I have a Denon 1611 hooked up with XBOX, DVD, and CHARTER CABLE BOX to a SAMSUNG UN55C8000. For whatever reason I have no sound coming from my (TV) speakers and no sound at all when I switch to my game...

It would appear that your receiver, from pictures I looked at, has 4 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out. Looking at the specs of the tv, it has 4 HDMI in. I'm guessing that you have your receiver set up with speakers and sometimes you'd rather listen to tv speakers? I didn't download a manual however, usually to get sound from tv speakers you may have to turn off av's speakers or, there may be a way to bypass. If you could give me more info on hookup and what you want to do I could probably be of more assistance.

I buy a new tv, samsung led tv. the problem is that we cannot connect the sound from tv to reciever

I bought a new ford electric car.
I am trying to install my Sony XYZ stereo in it but it doesn't hook up.
What do I do?

Ok, now we've isolated the problem in the structure of your question.
Without knowing a single thing about WHAT samsung LED tv you have, nobody can really help you.
Please be much more specific about the TV and how everything is hooked up and what it's hooked up to.

Cable TV blinks on and off when connected to my Onkyo receiver.

I have the same problem.  It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video).  Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts.  I am desperate for a solution.

overload, usually means that is overloaded. i've had the receiver for about 4 or 5 years now and never had problems with it. It was sitting ontop on my tv for those 4 or 5 years, and i haver noticed it untill just recently, (when i bought a new tv and i had to get a stand for it, and i had to stick the receiver in it)that is runs very hot, very quickly; Maybe that is the problem you are having now, that the thins is older and maight be able to handle it as it id b4. Maybe you made some changes to your set up: new speakers, etc.
