Question about Kenwood VR-407 Receiver

No digital or dts output

I have digital audio sourses hooked up to all the digital inputs in the back. I've never had this problem before. I usually set the audio setting on "auto" and the receiver will change to "digital" or "dts" on the display in front. Any ideas? Thanks, jballgame

I have this exact same problem. I can only get it to play in ProLogic, Stereo or 3-stereo. But no DTS or 5.1. I have it hooked up to a blu-ray player via an optical audio cable.

How do I get audio from tv to receiver?


There should be audio output's on your TV and cable box. There are usually multiple options on most newer model a/v equipment. If u check the manual look for the page showing you about the various connections on the back, you're lookin for anything to do with audio output, there are many different types optical, digital, and analog. Again depending on your specific equipment there's almost always at least one way you can connect them

Can u hook it to a computer for sound


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

More-advanced sound cards would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

A digital-capable receiver would accept 44.1 kHz for normal CD or DTS sources. Some diddling with the output sampling frequency might allow digital multichannel audio to be decoded by the receiver.

I am using a JVC RX6000 video audio receiver, and i hooked 5.1 BMB brand home surround speakers to it, and connected my ASUS media player that has optical output and used optical cable to connect to the...


Hi,
This is a common problem. Each input will default to analog. Even though you have plugged an optical cable into the inputs of the Receiver, you have to change that input to digital.
For example, if you connect a CD player RCA cables to the Receiver. The receiver will recognize the Analog signal at the CD input. If you unplug the Analog RCA Cables and plug in the Digital optical, the receiver will still be at it's normal default input for the CD player which is Analog. You then have to switch the input, using either the remote or it may be able to be done with the buttons on the front.
As soon as it is changed to Digital, you will get nice sound.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

My receiver will not play in dts mode at all. (RX-V 2400)


Page 4 of the manual discusses the Input Mode button and how it prioritizes multiple audio signals from the same device. Could that be the case? Try Auto.

Page 35: "If the digital output data of the player has been processed in any way, you may not be able to perform DTS decoding..."

Page 83: The connected component is not set to output ... DTS digital signals."

How to play dts/dolby digital on HK AVR5


I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.
