Sound ahead of picture

All my channels are in synch except my digital movie channels. They are close sometimes but other times it's terrible. The sound is ahead of the picture.

In your quest for:

Connect Yamaha R-V703 receiver to HDMI or Optical output on TV to get 5.1 sound

it may not only adaptors that you need:

• you may need a Digital Audio Decoder for HDMI

like the one from:

Since the model of the TV is unknown (not stated above)

• which should be connected to a device with ATSC tuner ( OTA )

Channel Master 7400 PVR

like the one from :

• you may experience, little to no output from the rear speakers,

and many times only the center speaker will be active.

But on action movies,

you may hear all 5 speakers + 1 ( for sub) all of the time.

For viewing:

use the TV as a monitor (also unknown model, not stated )

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?

6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

I can't determine the best listenmodes for DVD and particularly VCD. I have a 5.1 fazor Dali speaker system. I listen to music in 'all channel stereo'. My preference for movies would be thx. For vcd this...

The 'best' audio result will always be subjective, but when it comes to digital multichannel content, the engineers probably had it right, so I'd go with Dolby Digital, THX for movies; and experiemnt with all the others for muical content becaasse any given audio recording can yield surprising new details when you turn DSP loose on it.

Is there any upgrade avaiable to allow the Dolby Digital EX to remain ON (not AUTO) after the unit it reset? Per page 78 of the manual, it resets to AUTO, so I have to manually go into the menu to enable...

Enter the sound menu. Under the selection for extended surround, choose "on."
Then, under type select "EX/ES."

The way it is currently set for you, the movie software has to have a "flag" that your receivers' decoder must recognize in order for your rear surround speakers to function for a particular movie. Not all movies in DTS-ES or DD-EX have this flag encoded in it's software. So the rear surround channels would not be commanded by the software to be decoded and played automatically...thus requiring you to enable them yourself.
Setting it to "on" in the sound menu will take care of that problem.

No sound in listening modes except pure audio and direct. Was working fine and just stopped one day. Connections are all good. Surround sound seems to be broken?

Check the input mode on the reciever so that they are set for dual, rather than just digital or analog. It might be set for analog and your using a digital optical in cable. Also make sure DTS mode is turned off, unless your watching a DVD that is dts enabled.

No audio on any channel, even in audio setup mode, no audio headp

If you have any of its sound outputs connected to a TV or tape deck do they get the signal? If so, then we know there is sound processing somewhere inside the unit but not emerging to anyplace that requires amplification.

A quick basic check would be to tune an FM station, run an RCA cable pair from the audio output for a tape deck (see the picture at the link) to an analog audio input on your TV. Select that input on the TV and you shouls hear the FM station, or anything the receiver is configured to play. If it's silent then there is no audio signal circulating in the receiver to get out to the amplifiers.

Check to make sure Multi-Channel input is not selected unless that is what you're listening to as it bypasses all other sources analog and digital EXCEPT the tape; and check any Mute or Zone Controls, too.

If you hear the program on the TV but not through any attached speakers, then the amplifiers are all disabled for some reason. The click I asked about before... when you turn it on does it get a click about 5 seconds later. That would be the protection circuitry turning OFF to allow the amplifiers to function.

I notice it has a Tape function. Make sure it isn't selected as it assumes a tape deck or processor is attached and will only play back what would be coming FROM the tape deck or processor. On my Pioneer receiver it also disables any digital signal processing.

Sometimes when I'm watching TV with the remote on the seat someone moves and something bad happens. It's always some unfamiliar button that gets touched unintentionally. Look over the remote for things like MUTE, Multi-CH, Tape.

Ittermittent digital audio drop out on some channels

Did the issue ever get resolved. I have similar issues with a connection to Cox Cable HDTV and Onkyo TX-DX989. All sources (DVD Player) sound fine and not issues except channels 706 and 710 on Cox Digital receiver. I had Cox replace the HDTV receiver and the same issue occurs. I've tried optical audio and also the COAX audio ports with the same issue. The workaround I have found is to set the audio to "Other" on the Cox box, but the volume then has to be turned up quite a bit.

Left channel not working

The first thing I would check has already been done, the only other thing would be fuses. I am preety sure there is a protection fuse at ever channels output to protect against a dead short. I am sure you have already fixed this problem but I thought I would give it a try. Let me know what you found.

No output from left channel after crackling sound

Marantz SR 5200/6200 lost audio or crackling on left or right channel except in mode s-direct is now fixed !
The root cause is a defective inegrated circuit on DSP board (the one with digital inputs). To fix it change the chip CS4391 by a new one or better by the improved version CS4392. On my device a capacitor was cut close to this IC : replace one 1uF after changing the IC. For any question search me with my callsing "F5RCT"; i have a spare IC for the one who is able to change it !
I'm amateur radio and engineer
