Getting clear audio to televisions from a soundboard
I work at my church and need help with connecting an audio feed from the sanctuary to the fellowship hall where tvs are located. I am running a 1/4" cable out of the soundboard and into a female 1/4" audio cable (red, white, black, and green wires). From there the cable goes about 50 ft to a S-Video/RCA Audio 1 in 4 Amp and splits off to each tv. My problem is there is a major buzzing that overpowers the audio for the services. The female 1/4" has the red wire soldered to the connector and the black and green soldered as a ground. I found a splice that only had the black connected to the black and the white connected to the white. And for the RCA connector I have the red soldered to the red connector with white as ground and the black soldered to the black connector with green as ground. Can you help me stop the buzzing noise and bring clear sound to the tvs?

What is feeding the video/audio signals to your Onkyo receiver? Are you getting your input from a satellite receiver or cable set top box? Or are you just using you TV with a coax feed from a terrestrial aerial?
You need a receiver that will decode Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 if you want to use surround sound. If you are using your TV as the reveiver and it has that capability then the problem is probably the type of HDMI cable you are using. You need a cable that has 'audio return' - in other words it will feed the digital audio (from your TV receiver) to the Onkyo box. Some HDMI cables do not include 'audio return'. Check what type of HDMI cable you have.
If you respond with answers to these questions I will be glad to provide more assistance.
You can't connect your receiver to the television to get sound that way unless your television has an hdmi output. Your tv more than likely does not have an hdmi output. Those are hdmi inputs on your television. The way to connect the television to the receiver is to connect the red and white RCA outputs from the tv to the red and white RCA inputs on the receiver to get stereo sound. Now if your television has a digital audio out you might be able to get surround sound with connecting a fiber optic cable between the digital audio out of the tv and the digital audio in on the receiver, but this does not always work for all of the devices you have connected to your television.
The way to go is to connect all of your devices to the television's inputs for video and directly to the receiver for sound. The devices are connected from their audio OUT to your receiver's audio IN.
Connect the Wii to your television. Then connect the variable audio output from the TV to the audio in on the monitor section of the receiver. Then use the TV/SAT input selection on the receiver and dolby prologic 2 as your sound mode.
Are you not getting audio to the television speakers and the onkyo reciever speakers when connected HDMI thru the reciever or just the television. If it is just thru the television then it is because the reciever is grabbing the HDMI audio signal and converting it so it does not reach the TV. If it is both then try changing the HDMI signal output from PCM to DOLBY DIGITAL on the computer. Your reciever may not be able to process the PCM signal of the computer. Does the reciever show a PCM or DOBLY DIGITAL display when HDMI is hooked up to it?
If you know how to check electronic components, have good soldering skills, and have the proper equipment then disassembling and checking it out would be the right thing to do.
But if you have no experience with this kind of stuff you really should take it to a service center and let a professional look at it. I have seen on many occasions when people who disassemble their equipment and attempt to repair it, but have no experience at this sort of thing end up causing more problems than they started with.
It is also dangerous, you can be shocked by the electricity or cause a fire. And if you do no understand the terms it would be very difficult for you to understand what to look at.
Your friend who said it was the soundboard is wrong, there is no board in those Kenwood's called a "soundboard", so I would not be so quick to listen to him about opening it up.
You should be able to find all the instructions for these connections in your products owners manuals. The procedure should be straight forward. all the connections to the receiver should be input and output connections. The Receiver is basically just a switch box and amplifier with extras.You must make sure you know which input and output you are using for each of the components. You must have all the remote controls set-up to work with each other. The receiver is the master switch. From it you will control all input sources to the various output sources. Here is a possible set-up . Television output sound and video to the first input/ output section of the receiver. from here you can use the first audio/video output to your dvd/vcr input. This will allow you to record the television programs video and audio to your recording media.The audio/video output of the dvd/vcr will be connected to the second input /output of the receiver.With the second input you can view all the dvd/vcr materials on the television while listening to the sound through your receiver.The master output of the receiver's audio/video output is connected to the television input circuit. This will allow viewing and sound from all the units connected to the receiver. The receiver sound system will receive sound from all the input units as long as the connection are right and the input/out selections from the remotes controls are correct. That is the reason the owners manuals are so important for this purpose. They give these instructions and diagrams to show you the correct procedures for setting them up.They also give you information about customer support either with website help or a call in line for technical assistance.I hope this helps you with your problem.
