Connecting H550 Receiver to new HD Ready tv correctly
Can anyone advise what the correct way to set up the H550 with my newly acquired Sony KDL 32L4000 LCD for the various inputs, please? Previously I had Virgin digibox connected by SCART to 3 a/v jacks, oldish Mitsubishi VCR (only has SCART output) by SCART to 6 a/v jacks, and TEAC DVD by optical feed. Old crt tv was connected by jack from TEAC 'monitor out' and everything worked fine. New LCD tv has two HDMI ( no use as TEAC doesn't have this capability), two SCART inputs (AV1: stated as outputs available only for analogue tv, AV2 stated as outputs to the current screen - except PC, HDMI 1,2,Component 1080i) whatever that lot means!, Component In (Y/PbCb/PrCr) and AV3 (video, audio L, audio R phono jacks).
Is it possible to connect just the yellow video phono jack of a 3 jack/SCART cable to one of the tv's SCARTS, or will the AV3 video jack on the new tv be the only way to connect to the TEAC 'monitor out' jack?

Make sure the MUTE function has not been activated.
Try turning up the volume level.
Check that there are no headphones connected.
Try setting the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver to a different Surround Sound mode.
IMPORTANT:Verify that the source you are playing is encoded with Surround Sound audio. If not, the audio will be very difficult to hear using a Surround Sound setting. Set Surround Sound to OFF when playing a source that is not encoded with a Surround Sound signal.
Check each speaker to make sure they are properly connected to the A/V receiver.
Perform a Test Tone function to verify if the speakers are working correctly.
Verify all external audio sources are securely connected to the appropriate inputs on the A/V receiver.
NOTE: If the audio is being sent from a television to the A/V receiver, then it may be necessary to disable the internal speakers of the TV or set the audio output of the TV to FIXED or VARIABLE. If the audio output of the TV is set to VARIABLE, then you will need to increase the volume level of the TV.
Make sure the correct audio input is selected on the A/V receiver.
Confirm what type of HDMI devices are connected to the A/V receiver and then check the following:
Test each one of the HDMI inputs on the A/V receiver to confirm that all of the inputs for the A/V receiver are working.
Try a couple of different HDMI cables to verify there is not a bad set of cables.
Unplug the video source from the A/V receiver and connect the source directly to the television. If there is still a problem with the audio, continue to the next step. If connecting the source to the TV corrects the sound issue, service will be needed on the A/V receiver.
Verify the DEMO (demonstration) mode is not active.
Change the ATT (attenuate) setting.
NOTE: The procedure to change the ATT feature varies by model.
Reset the A/V receiver back to factory specifications.
2. Locate the 5-digit code for your TV (see pages 13-16). 3. Move the slide switch to TV. 4. Press and hold in the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light under the TV icon flashes twice and then release both keys. 5. Using the number keys enter the 5-digit code for your brand of TV. If performed correctly the green light under TV will flash twice. 6. Aim the remote at your TV and press the power key once. The DIRECTV Receiver should turn off. If it does not turn off, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying each code for your brand until you find the correct code.
If you're not getting the audio signal, please select the Audio for HDMI to TV+AMP in Menu display. If you're not getting the videos, please check if the TV is HD ready and supports 1080p signals. Also check if the connections are firm and secure and you selected the correct input on both Receiver and TV. Please try connect the Settop box to different HDMI port of the receiver and try. You can also try connecting the Set top box to tv directly and check if its working. If its working fine directly with the TV, you may try to replace the cable and try else the receiver may require service
In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:
Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.
best set up if you have all hdmi is to have all your components go into the receiver ie. hd cable box, dvd etc. by using the hdmi output from the player(s) to the hdmi input to the receiver. next use one hdmi cable from the receiver to the tv then your laughing.
you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as well...as it has been a while since you posted this.
