SOURCE: Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver

I JUST EXPERIENCED THE SAME SITUATION HERE IS THE SOULTION YAMAHA SENT ME TO RESET THE SYSTEM HTR-5990 YAMAHA HTR-5990 FACTORY PRESET PROCEDURES All models require the STANDBY/ON button to be turned OFF to start the reset process. NOTE: The remote control cannot be used during the reset procedure. All necessary buttons to complete the reset process are located on the front panel of the receiver. This procedure is not intended to correct intermittent shut-off symptoms or problems MODEL: HTR-5990 (U.S.A. model/s) (BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, PLEASE READ THE ABOVE NOTES!) 1. Before you start this procedure, locate the MASTER ON/OFF button and the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button on the Front Panel of the unit. 2. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RECEIVER’S MASTER ON/OFF HAS BEEN TURNED OFF. 3. With the Right Hand, press and hold the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button. With the Left Hand, press the MASTER ON/OFF button and HOLD both buttons for no more than “3” SECONDS, AT THE SAME TIME. SP IMP. * 8 MIN. will appear on the display, which indicates you are in the Diagnostics Mode. 4. Rotate the PROGRAM KNOB to the right (ONCE) until the display reads PRESET *CANCEL. 5. Press the STRAIGHT/EFFECT button (ONCE) and the display will change to PRESET RESET. 6. Turn the unit off by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. 7. Wait 5 seconds, then turn the unit on by pressing the MASTER ON/OFF button. You have now reset your component to the factory settings. NOTE: Yamaha receivers don’t have to be reset during normal operation. It is not recommended that you reset the receiver unless a setting has been changed that you are not aware of, or the receiver is not operating properly. The reset procedure will clear an incorrect setting that might be causing abnormal operation. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: Speakers pop and rear speakers cut out of surround sound

Hi,
your problem is a bad solder connection of the relay linked to the lautspeaker sockets. I had the same problem and googled for the solution. Since I resoldered the pins everything is fine. That problem is well known and happens to a lot of Sony receivers.

I can send you a link with a detailed how-to-do solution with pictures, however it's written in german language. But you can use some online translators.

Here is the link: http://www.bmw-syndikat.de/bmwsyndikatforum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=28280&FORUM_ID=20&CAT_ID=9&Forum_Title=Geplaudere&Topic_Title=Problem+Sony+STR-DE445

SOURCE: How do I connect my Lenovo X200 Tablet to my new

Hi,

Couple things to be aware of:
1. The X200 is not available with a Blu-Ray drive. So, your HD content will need to come from somewhere else, such as downloading from iTunes. Alternatively, you can purchase an external Blu-Ray drive. (it may be cheaper / easier to buy a dedicated Blu-Ray player if that's the route you want to go).

2. The X200 only has analog audio output. The only surround you'll be able to receive is Dolby Pro-Logic, provided your source material has it encoded that way. You can connect your laptop to the receiver via a 1/8" to RCA adapter, available at virtually any electronics retailer. (Buy the cheapest one you can find) Connect the 1/8" plug to your headphone jack on the laptop, and the white and red RCA connections to any available input on the back of your receiver. (such as CD, AUX, DVD, etc.) Select that input on the front of your receiver and you'll hear the output of your laptop. Enable surround sound processing (pro-logic) on your receiver. Check the manual for instructions on how to do that.

3. Purchase a VGA cable (I recommend monoprice.com ). I suggest staying under 15' for optimal quality. Connect one end to your laptop, and the other to the PC-in on the back of your TV. Select that input using your TV's remote. (On my Sony, I press Menu, External Inputs, then PC)
4. Set up your laptop to use the external monitor. I suggest leaving your laptop off till you plug in the VGA cable. If upon booting your laptop is outputting to the TV display, usually a key combination such as Shift-F7 will enable it.

Alternatively, your TV has an 1/8" audio input jack that goes along with the PC input. If you've connected the audio out of the TV to your receiver already, the audio from your laptop can pass through the TV to the receiver. 1/8" cables can also be purchased from Monoprice.com.

Let me know if that helps!

I am not getting sound from the marantz 5009 receiver to the tv. I am using hdmi cables from receiver to the tv


Huh? why? would you not want to get sound from the lousy TV speaker to the receiver and it speakers instead? That's how I have my Onkyo THX system set-up. My Samsung TV actually has decent speakers but even they are junk compared to a real speaker system. Even $500 worth of real speakers can sound better then the speakers on a $5000 TV. Do not do it.

I have a htr 6130 yamaha reciever and when i hook my five channel home theater system it plays for a while then when i turn it up to almost max it turns the unit off completly... how do i hook up my


Hook all the positive and negative wires correctly and read on the speakers and make sure you have them all in the right spot and if that doesnt help its probably because the reciever is maxed out wich is triggering a kill switch wich some recievers have as a safety feature so you dont blow your speakers

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio

A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your
home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular,
a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential
for a realistic and unified surround soundfield.
Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays
between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu.
Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay
settings is essential for the best results.
In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround
sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the
best surround sound field.

Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems

Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels
between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not
enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly
set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers
reach the listener at exactly the same instant.
This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should
be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same
time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the
viewer than the fronts.

To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems
apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels.

Need help with SSI Cineplex 1500 Home Theater hook up..have all speakerwires hooked up,have 2 wire rca cable hooked up to input on system,going to output on satellite reciever, whaen I hit test tone I hear...


Hi, Hiss soundare from RCA cables.You need to reconnect again,but using a different cable for connection.

And also sometimes home theater acts that way during test mode, Check the manual and you will see how to set the home theater to see the mode that will allow all speakers to work. It's a normal thing when connecting a newly bought home theater.It the settings.Use the manual.

Take care.

Integrate computer (huge MP3 library) into home theater sound (AIWA's fantastic speakers)


Sounds like the wiring for the speakers has been modified to bypass the crossover. Best to open up the speakers and see if there is a crossover. Both speakers should be wired to a crossover and the crossover wired to the speaker out on the amp. Crossovers can be bought from Jaycar in Aust or Madisound in US

Hook up wireless speakers


I'm assuming the wireless speakers you have utilize an RCA jack to connect to the receiver.

Solution:

The good news is yes, you can use them on your receiver. The bad news is that the only output on your receiver is "VIDEO OUT" so whatever you want to watch or hear on the wireless speakers must be connected to the "VIDEO INPUT".

If the wireless speaker module uses speaker wire to connect to a receiver you will simply tap into the surround thumb clip speaker jacks.

I will add that wireless speakers tend to be disappointing when used in home theater.
