Question about Pioneer VSX-D412 Receiver

Connected record player

I connected a record player to this receiver, but you cant hear it unless you turn it all the way up.  Do I need a signal booster or something?  Record player plays fine through old NAD receiver with a phono input.

I have a Yamaha RV-V450 receiver. Where can I hook up my turntable. I have tried many different options. I can hear very faintly the record playing but only after turning the volume up. I am having trouble...

Turntables generally do not have a strong enough signal to drive an amplifier. You can check on the back of your turntable and see if it has a switch to change from phono to line level. Most do not, but a few will.

If your turntable does not have this switch, you will need to purchase a phono amplifier to boost the signal to standard line level. You can get these on ebay for around $15.

You connect the turntable to the phono amp input and then connect the phono amp output to any of the inputs on the back of your receiver (aux, cd, etc).

I have connected an onkyu c7030 cd player to my denon avrx2000 receiver and I cant get any sound how can I tell if the cd port on the receiver is working

Some receivers have the ability to turn ports off. Check this is not the case. Try another socket - say a tape or aux. The CD should play from any except one for a record deck. Don't plug it into one of them. Also check the connecting lead as they can cause a complete loss of signal.

Connect tv audio input output receiver

Just make sure that you are using cables that are configured correctly physically and check to make sure that you are using the correct analog or digital signal necessary. Your audio settings need to be checked out and set accordingly. Check directions carefully.

Zva457mg9A has tv tuner

If you mean the DirectTV satellite system, the tuner in the Magnavox ZV457MG9A will not work. That tuner is for OTA (ATSC and NTSC) and CATV channels. You must connect the Composite A/V Line Out from the receiver to the Line In (front or back) of the recorder. Then, you need to select L1 or L2 (Line In, as needed) by pressing the Source button (at the top of the remote to the left of the Open/Close DVD button). If you are recording immediately, do this after setting the Record mode. Then press Rec if you want to record immediately. Set the receiver to the channel that you will want to record before setting the recording. Leave the unit on that channel and do not turn it off before the recording time. If you are doing a timed record, set the source after setting the time with the up/down/right/left arrows and then press the right arrow to continue setting the timed recording.

If you mean OTA, make sure that you are correctly choosing Digital channels with the DTV/TV button unless you have analog channels still broadcasting in your area. Also check if the antenna signal is strong enough to be seen by the tuner. The digital signal is either enough to be tuned in or you get "no signal". If you split the signal to record and watch different programs, you may reduce the signal below that needed by the tuner. (Different tuners have varying sensitivities. So the TV might still get enough signal when the recorder doesn't.) Amplified splitters can resolve this but when they fail give more problems.

The manual for the is available from Manage My Life: . All recordings are in SD.

I hope this helps.

I have a dvd/vcr rrecorder with no coaxial connection. How can I tape or record a TV program?

Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below..
If you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD
There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the
DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD
when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected..
Take care and please

Can i hookup extrnal speakers to my hi-fi vcr-dvd recorder without a tuner or a reciver, my model # drc8335. Think you.

I do not think so because the first problem is that the VCR recorder uses RCA audio cables (the White and Red colored cables) but the speakers use regular speaker wire. You cant convert from RCA to regular speaker wire. Second problem is even if you find a way to convert the wires, the DVD recorder does not amplify the sound signal. In fact all DVD players and recorders including VCR combos do NOT amplify the audio signal so you will barely hear it. The receiver does two jobs. First it converts from RCA cable to speaker cable and Second it also amplifies the signal before it sends it out to a speaker. Thats why a receiver is important.

Sherwood 460 equalizer hook up

Connect the EQ to the Sherwood as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).
Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).
This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop.
The CD player should be connected to the receiver though the CD in's and out's (or if your Sherwood doesn't have a CD in/out, then use AUX or TAPE2).
To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources (like the CD player) you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.
