Question about Onkyo TX-SR602 Receiver

1 Answer

Installed surround sound, no picture on tv

I just recently installed Polk surround sound with an Onkyo reciever in my house. I have a fairly new 42" Panasonic plasma tv. Everything works except the tv. This is what has me stumpped: coax from mainline cable to digital cable box- RCA cable from digital cable box to A/V reciever- S Video cable from A/V reciever to TV. The S Video is plugged into the "Monitor Out" on the reciever. I've tried all different combonations of inputs on tv and reciever. PLEASE HELP!! I think that the problem has to do with the conversion of RCA cables to S Video.

Re: installed surround sound, no picture on tv

I could not get my TV to recognize an S-video signal from my reciever either. I ended up just bypassing the reciever and running the video straight from the cable box to the TV. It might be a better option anyways as some quality is lost if you run it through the reciever.

Hey , with the Onkyo TX-NR1000 can I get started plugging two speaker while I gather enough money to buy the surround sound speakers. Also your opinion on speaker choices is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Sure you can only connect 2 speakers. As for brand recommendation Polk audio makes some fine sounding speakers also Klipsch, Boston acoustics, too many to suggest. If you have a Best Buy near you they usually have a speaker room with many different brands that you can listen to. Though that doesn't mean you have to buy them their. I'm partial to Polk audio though. Polk has excellent customer service. That's going to be a tough decision you should really do some research on the internet for cost to quality references. Good luck. I hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.

Onkyo digital reciever has poping noise when in dolby sound

I have the same reciever, and had the same problem.  Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings.  These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods.  Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....

Speaker is not detected

If you are connecting a 5.1 surrround sound rather than 7.1, have you connected the surround speakers to the surround left and surround right rather than surround back left and surround back right?
