Mitsubishi Surround Sound M-VR800

When I turn on my reciever it automatically displays decoder on it and will not let me watch TV until it has sat on the decoder for like 10-15 min. I will push the Video 2 button for TV over and over and it will keep going back to a blue screen on my TV and display DECODER on the receiver. Any helps?

Mine does it as well. I just go back and forth from video to cd to something else and after a minute it works fine.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...

AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

I bought a Sharp Aquos HDTV. Am trying to use a digital co-ax cable to run tv thru my reciever. I get no sound. there is only 1 place on each device to hook up this cable. Any suggestions?

I dont wish to assume that when you say receiver, you mean sattelite or cable. Since you may be trying to hook this up to a surround sound reciever...

Let me also clarify, if this is the case, the receiver needs to be turned on AND the selection signal device set to TV or AUX wherever it is you've connected the TV.

Now by receiver, if you actually meant cable or sat box, then the Ext antena from that service connects to that units ANT IN.

Then from there on that unit ANT OUT to your TV SIGNAL IN.

If you want the external surround sound and have the connectors for this. Then you need to send them OUT to the Stereo/Surround receiver TV IN.

Now having said that and assuming that your TV does not have the Red and White Audio RCA connectors... Your Sat or Cable box does... You connect those to the surround sound Receiver Audio IN

Hopefully you'll find this useful.

If this has not answered the situation. Please feel free to come back and provide all components your working with. Surround reciever, Sat, cable, DVD, VCR whatever etc. etc... I'd be more than glad to help you through this

Good Luck

1) How is it with FM? That -35dB may be normal for this receiver. My old Pioneer is exactly like yours, inaudible at -50, whisper-quiet at -35 on all sources. But it will still crush my skull if I want it to.

2) Page 72. Press STRAIGHT to toggle out of Straight decoding mode.

I've just bought HK AVR 260 and have the following problem: Sometimes the sound disappears while changing the channels on my sat decoder, or while pausing and playing again on PS3, or while changing the...

This is clearly a manufacture defect right off the assembly line. From your description you have a serious intermittent problem with the AVR unit when it comes to selection and other choices and it will only get worse, I strongly suggest you return the item in favor of another.

I have hooked up my dish, yamaha receiver, CD player, blueray player and have surround sound for everything but the TV, Help!

Usually, unless the TV show is being broadcast itself in surround sound, the surround decoder in the receiver will default to front only sound on TV shows. When a TV show says that it is in surround sound, the receiver will decode it. I think the Law and Order series in broadcast in surround.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Seems to be stuck on decoder 4 fm am when pushed will come on and go right back to decoder 4

Mine is having a similar problem. After it has lost power or been unplugged it will always revert to decoder 4. It seems to need to warm up because after waiting about 10 minutes it finally stays where I tell it to.

I want surround sound. How do I hook up my audio 5.1 RVC-884VBK, with my HDbox and LCD TV? It's too confusing. What hooks to what? Currently the HD box and blueray DVD is hooked straight to TV ...

Does you television have an "Optical Audio Output"? This would be the best and easiest way to get surround sound from your system. If your TV has an optical output the you can use an Optical Cable to connect the TV to the reciver. This way whatever you are watching from the TV will be in surround sound. The HDMI connection sends a surround sound signal from each device to the television. If you connect it to this output on the TV then make sure the optical output is turned on in you telivison's menu. If your TV does not have an Optical Audio Output then you will need to connect each optical output from the blu-ray and HDbox to your reciever. Your reciever will need to have two Input channels(one for each device). Then you can select that input to the device(blu-ray or HDbox) that you are using. The optical cable is the best way to go for surround sound because it is pure digital and produces the best sound. If the HDbox or Blu-Ray does not have an optical output then you will need the six rca jacks to get the surround sound. Let me know further info on what you have so I can assist you more.

I have a kenwood vr-707 it gets surround sound on dvd/vcr but I can't get surround sound on just tv.

Well you have a built in decoder/surround processor that will detect a signal with the surround sound info(dvd/sat.receiver/cable converter etc.) and will then process it to the different speakers on your system. In the absence of that signal it will process it as standard stereo sound(two front speakers). You may want to look in your receiver functions/menu for simulated surround.
Hope this will help.

1 front speaker and 1 surround speaker won't work on cable selection

theres probably a problem with the right channel cable or plug that connects the tv to the reciever, or the tv is set to mono audio.
