Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

No OSD on TV connected thru composite video (Monitor Out)

The TV has S-video & Composite video inputs. The receiver is connected into the composite video thru Monitor Out (yellow RCA). Can't see any OSD at all! Have to just depend on the messages on the receiver's display.

Is there any initial setup required to get the OSD to work thru the Monitor-Out?

    1. OSD is ONLY sent to the HDMI output port.



    2. All other Video inputs on Composite (Yellow-RCA), S-Video and Component Video can also be viewed either via the HDMI connection or thru their respective video-out connections. This system has the required circuitry to Up-Convert these video signals.



    3. However there is one point to be careful about. If your DVD player is actually connected to the S-Video input port but the DVD input selection setting is wrongly set to say 'component-1', in this case even the HDMI output will not display any picture because the Receiver will only look for a component video signal! [You are likely to miss out this part in the manual on pg. 22 where the Video Connection Formats are introduced.]

For the tx-sr606, the onscreen display will only show up when you connect the receiver using HDMI out to your tv. this is indicated on page 22 of the user manual.. hope this helps.. ^_^

How to connect Sony dvd player to onkyo TX-8511 receiver


The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:

Hmm.. I doubt you will be able to help me, and if you can, it won't be free, but here's my question anyway: any idea why when I try to connect an s-video cable from my harman kardon avr 130's Video 1...


Well, use the "Monitor Out" jack on the receiver, as that is what it's designed for.
Is there a jack labeled "Video 1 Input" or only "Video 1 Output"? It could be that the Harmon Kardon folks have a weird way of labelling so that "Video 1 Output" is actually an "input" to the amp that is then fed thru the "Monitor Out" jack. It will take some experimenting on your behalf. Some units will also NOT take an input or output thru the S-Video IF you have a composite cable connected to the (yellow) composite video jack for that same point, so make sure that is disconnected if you want to use the SVideo. Also, sometimes there is a menu setup in your monitor where you have to decide between Composite video or SVideo or Component Video, so check that in some cases as well.
Let me know what you find out.

I'm a little confused by your use of 'composite' with audio, as in "Does anyone know what would happen if I ran both composite audio and optical audio both to their respective TV/SAT IN input jacks on the STRDE935 ?". What is composite audio?

The manual claims on page 48 that you can't record digital audio out to the analog REC OUT jacks.

http://www.retrevo.com/s/Sony-STR-DE935-Receivers-review-manual/id/387dj981/t/1-2/

I say 'claims' because the engineers or manual writers clearly are not as creative as you are in trying to wring as much utility out if this unit as possible.

I can't find an answer but I would offer this - if you are recording anything though any AVR, as soon as you choose to monitor the audio the digital input is usually disabled.

And I would be curous to hear more about what you're doing and how you finally achieve it.

How do I get the " OSD" to work!


Make sure that you are selecting the correct input on the TV for which input you are plugging the receiver into. Then press the OSD button on the receiver remote. If that doesn't work, try plugging the S video into a different video input, or use a different video input cable such as from the composite connection of the monitor out. Some reasons for having to do it this way is that some televisions may give priority to one input of identical type which is usually S video. For example if you are using the S video input on the front of the TV with a different device and then plug another S video cable to another input elsewhere on the TV, it may only display the picture through the S video on one input because it is using the same circuitry for both S video inputs and can't display picture from both of them simultaneously nor can you toggle between them even if the other device is not turned on. HOWEVER, there MAY be a way around this as well...try your picture-in-picture (PIP) and toggle to the PIP input that your receiver is plugged into. Still then if that doesn't provide you with the OSD of the receiver menu, then just change one of your S video inputs to a composite input.

Yamaha RX-V730 OSD problem


I assume you have a component connected source coming into the Yamaha to give it sync and you are component connected out to the monitor. If you have no input you won't have osd on component only without a signal to sync lock.

It is always possible that the 730 doesn't actually have component overlay for osd, just its a 2in 1 out switched affair. Hence the manual says you also need the composite/ Svid as well...They certainly don't use both at the same time. Newer units have full up + down video conversion but at this age it won't have.

No video/display on TV when using sony str dh 500


If your set up is HDR-AVR and TV all you need to do is go HDMI out from HDR to HDMI in(Sat.) of AVR and monitor out HDMI (or composite video) to TV. and select the Sat. input on the AVR. The sound is only comming from the HDR in this case and the composite video or HD video is being switched out to the TV when you select Sat. on your AVR

Avr5800 with no on screen display


With some receivers, the on-screen display is limited to a specific video output from the receiver to your TV.

I'm not 100% positive if that's the issue with yours, but it's likely.

If you're connected via Component or HDMI out, you may want to try S-video or composite video.

If that doesn't work, consult Denon to find out which output does your OSD.

Onkyo TX SR 606 -- Connection Issues with Cable/ Dig Coax Audio


1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]

2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".

Xbox 360


There are a couple of options you can use.

Are your DVD and cable actually going to the Onkyo first and then to the TV? I am assuming it is, if you listen to the Onkyo when watching a DVD or cable.

The Onkyo receiver you have has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output.

Does your Xbox360 have an hdmi output and that is what you want to connect to the Onkyo? Some do and some don't.

If your Xbox has a hdmi output and you are already using the 2 hdmi inputs on the Onkyo, you can not connect the Xbox using the hdmi, you have no more hdmi to connect to, so you must go thru one of the other inputs of the Onkyo.

The hdmi has the video and audio together, the other video options do not. you would need to run seperate audio cables as well.
Your Xbox should have a composite video (yellow RCA jack) output or a component video (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green RCA jack) output.

When you connect the Xbox thru, lets say the composite video of the Onkyo , you will also need to connect the audio from the Xbox to the Onkyo on the same input. It should be right next to the yellow RCA jack or right under it. They are 2 RCA jacks, one red and one white.

You will then need to connect the composite output of the Onkyo to the composite input of the TV.

When connecting like this, you will also need to select the composite input on your TV with your remote for your TV. Your TV should have an input button that lets you go thru all the different inputs to it.

you can also use the component video from the Xbox if it has that. But you must also run the audio to the Onkyo as well to the corresponding audio inputs of the component video input on the Onkyo.

This may sound a little confusing, but remember that the hdmi has the audio and video in one cable, the other video options do not, so you must run additional cables for the audio to the Onkyo from the Xbox.

Also remember whichever video you use from the Xbox to the Onkyo, you must also run that same video from the Onkyo to the TV and then switch the TV over to that input when you want to watch the Xbox on the TV

No component video output


Hope this helps

The Yamaha HTR-6030 offers two types of video monitor output: Component and Composite. You may need to connect both types to your television as the HTR-6030 does not have composite to component video conversion. In other words, to view your VCR on your TV, you need to use the composite video monitor connection. However, for a DVD player or other source that has component video connections, use the component video monitor output to your TV. If your TV has both types, you simply switch between the two with your TV remote to access the proper video monitor output signal from the HTR-6030.
