SOURCE: Onkyo subwoofer not working

I fixed my subwoofer. The resistor at R16 (right next to the fuse) was the fried component. I removed it and replaced it with a 13K ohm 5 watt metal oxide resistor (from Mouser Electronics if not available locally). Works fine now. I got the solution and the circuit schematic from an audio hobbiest at diyAudio.com. This is, evidently, a fairly common problem.

SOURCE: TV Audio won't come through the Home Theatre Speakers

why it doesn't come. just connect the RCA cable to the output pins of TV and connect them to the input female jacks of home theatre receiver. or if the TV has optical out and the home theatre reciever had optical in. thats the best option. just connect one optical cable to enjoy the 5.1 sound. tell me clear problem if u r nt solved.

SOURCE: need some sound to my home theatre system

Hey gr37_98:

1 thing to keep in mind with HT (home theater) systems is that when selecting a particular function that the input to the receiver matches the output to the TV/monitor. Example, you can play dvd's just fine because the HDMI output from the 958 matches the input to your monitor. Many consumers are under the mistaken impression that the home theater receiver can convert the HDMI to some other format, i.e. digital co-ax or optical. This is not the case. To use some other input the receiving device must have the same function & that particular input must be selected in order for the receiver to amplify it.

That being said, when you previously tried the digital co-ax connection did you specially select that input on your HT receiver? If you didn't, the receiver would be expecting to be processing audio from the HDMI input & would ignore the digital co-ax. You may also need to select that output on the monitor in order to active it, which, in most cases, would be odd. I was attempting to access the owners' manuals for these units & decided to respond with basic info hoping to get you up & running. Respond to this post if you have any additional questions.

peace-out

If your television has RCA style audio/video output you can use an audio RCA cable (red & white connectors) and simply plug from the 'output' of your television into the auxilliary input on the back of the HT-BD2.

Then select AUX on the HT-BD2 remote, whenever you wish to listen to the television audio.

Installing a pioneer home theatre dvd/speaker system.


On page 36 of the Pioneer users manual, it describes how to set your audio for HDMI interconnect. Follow the directions, and hopefully it will work. You can down load the manual from the Pioneer web site. Google "speaker system HTZ171 DVD". Click on the Pioneer site for your system and look for the download on the right side of page.
I hope this was helpful...

1ST TIME SETUP OF NEW TV...HAVE AUDIO, NO VIDEO


Are you getting sound through the TV from the DVD, or is the sound from the DVD coming out of your home theater/surround sound system (if you have one)?

If it has more than one HDMI port (on the TV) try changing it. If not look around in your DVD settings as it might think it is only giving audio through the HDMI to a audio/home theatre system. And using the other video outputs to give the video instead.

It shouldn't be a problem with the cable, since it is digital, if it were not to work - nothing would, or the audio would atleast be coming out weird (it it wasn't working).

No surround sound through tv


May be you have to set the Pro-logic option soundfield, this will matrix a 5.1 surround sound effect, unless of course you are sending a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio signal from your TV broadcast into the Home theatre system, also have to check the TV audio output to send audio output to a Home theatre system in other than 2 channel stereo.

Problem getting home theatre sytem to play audio when watching tv


you need the red and white audio cable hooked into the AUDIO OUT connectors on the tv and the other end of the red and white cables into the AUDIO IN in tv to the media center (main Bose unit).....If your tv does not provide AUDIO OUT connectors, you cannot connect the tv audio to the 3-2-1 system. Continue using your tv speakers for sound.

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V


Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)
