Question about Onkyo TX-SR601 Receiver

3 Answers

TX-SR 601 no longer allows 5.1 channel mode

I recently got a blue ray DVD player and noticed a substantial improvement in sound quality.  I connected the DVD player to the receiver with an optical cable.  Upon placing in a blu ray disc, the sound would automatically switch to pro logic 2 mode and sound really great.  My typical output level was at volume 50 as opposed to 70 prior to the upgrade to blu ray.  Recently this automatic switch to prologic 2 mode and the terrific sound output have stopped.  I now have to listen to the blu ray movies on volume 70 again and it seems that background music and bass overpowers the speaking voices making movies less enjoyable and difficult to follow.  Further my blue ray player audio setup no longer allows for the switch from 3.1 to 5.1 audio output as it did in the past.  I have no idea how to switch it back to the way I had it.

    I didn't pay ten dollars to simply have a link to the owners manual.

    I am just hoping to find out if there is a reset switch on the TX-SR601 that will allow me to have access to the 5.1 channel output again as opposed to being limited to 3 channel output all of a sudden. When I upgraded to a blu ray player the switch happened automatically after inserting the disc. This no longer occurs and the audio output has suffered.

Unplug both units from the mains for an extended period of time. you would know that the Onkyo did a reset when all the tuner memories are erased.

of course all other settings and configurations would revert to factory default.

hope this helps.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it has to be determined which is at fault or needing re-configuration/setting (the Onkyo TX-SR601 or the blue ray DVD player). Pls try:

  • temporarily use another signal source with optical cable to connec to the Onkyo TX-SR60;
  • try again and see if the SR60 would through the different settings of sound processing;
  • if yes, then the blue ray DVD player is faulty;
  • if not then the Technics sound processor is faulty.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

If it is me and I am spending that kind of money, it is going to be sick, os here is sick. 7.1 dolby surround and 1080P HDMI, 135W per channel, and right now if you go to FRYS.com, it is normally $500.00 bt for right now it is only $449.00. But if you put this in, be prepared to buy a PS/3 as your next investment (Th best way to get Blu-RaY at an affordable price, plus many other features) and an upconvert DVD layer, which is only about $100.00 or less today. Then you better get ready to hear from your neighbors and the cops, because they are going to think a war has broken out in your place. Enjoy, I play movies that the sound is just so realistic, I hate to leave the house anymore. Also, remember, speaker placement is key, so know the optimal environment for your system and if you need one, I may be able to hook you up with a system room tuning DVD for next to nothing. This will allow you to setup your system and place your speakers optimally for your environment. good Luck.

Onkyo TX-SR500 Dolby Digital problem


I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1. According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps.
