Question about Pioneer VSX-D508

Open Question

TV/SAT audio input is inop

I have my video and auto output of my cable box hooked to the tv/sat input of my vsx-d508 receiver. The video comes through, but not the audio. If I hook the output of the cable box to the dvd input of the receiver, video and audio both work. So the question is this: is the tv/sat audio input broken?
Thanks to anyone who can help.

SOURCE: TV/SAT Video channel went out - Pioneer VSX516

Double check the video connection cable directly out of the SAT reciver and the video cable out from the Pioneer reciver, as there maybe an intermittant connection in them. If you replace them or sub them for known good ones, and you still have this probem, there is a switching IC inside the pioneer that has to be replaced.

SOURCE: Need help connecting Receiver to TV, DVD, VCR players

Take the audio outputs on the TV set and connect up to the The video 1 inputs to the receiver, BUT use the audio part of the video 1 input and leave the yellow video input blank. Now turn on the TV set, put the TV set on a channel, turn on the receiver and select the video 1 input and you should have the TV audio coming from the receiver. Good Luck.

SOURCE: No Sound on TV/SAT setting on Receiver.

Most TV has Audio Out RCA jack at rear and it gives same TV Sound as coming from its speakers.
Hook audio wire red white RCA pins at TV Out and plug these pins to TV/SAT input of receiver. Select TV/SAT input in receiver to get TV program sound coming out from TV.
Hope that info will help you.

Normally the LG TV Optical output will require an optical cable and not a PCM. So I am not sure if you are connecting the correct cable. The Pioneer can take both input types but the LG TV will only provide Digital output in Optical connection. PCM is a co-axial connection.

Assuming you have the correct cable you will need to assign the correct input types in the Pioneer receiver by selection using the setup menu. Do you have the user manual for the Pioneer receiver?

How to hook up a denon avr -1706 receiver To a lg smart tv


If you are tuning in TV stations with the TV set, you will need either an optical or a coaxial audio cable to go from the digital audio out of the TV to a digital audio in on the receiver. This setup should give you 5.1 Dolby digital sound. You can also use a pair of red and white rca cables, but you will only have 2 channel sound. You may need to set the TV to output the audio to external speakers. You will need to set the receiver to the input the TV audio is connected to.

If you want to watch Sat or Cable, you probably need a couple of HDMI cables. One HDMI cable will go from the output of the Sat/Cable box to the appropriate HDMI input on the receiver. The second HDMI cable will go from the Monitor Out on the receiver to an HDMI Input on the TV. You may need to set the receiver to output HDMI audio from the receiver, and not the TV. You will need to set the TV to the HDMI Input you connected to on the TV. You will also need to set the receiver to the input the Sat/Cable box is connected to.

Details of both of these setups should be covered in the receiver and the TV manuals. Refer to them for the detailed connections and settings you need to make.

Good Luck!

How to run tv from sat box and not have to turn on the reicer all the time. When I do want surround use the digital audio off sat box. Yamaha RX V377


If your SAT Box has multiple outputs, hook the HDMI output to your receiver so you can get full surround on movies etc. Connect the HDMI out on your receiver to an HDMI input on the TV. Run a composite or S-video connection from the sat box to the TV for regular TV viewing/listening without the receiver & speakers. I don't think you can get full HD over either of these cables, but you may be able to use the composite connections if they are available on your sat box and TV.

How do I hook up a Pioneer VSX-918V receiver to Sat.Dish box?


For the audio portion, you must have either a digital coax, optical connection or analog L/R composite RCA jacks plugged into the "Sat.audio in" on the rear panel of the chassis. The other end of THAT connection must come from the "audio out/ variable out" from the T.V. or from the Sat.Dish box.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D308 reciever and I have... no idea how to hook it up to my big TV (bought receiver used). Do I need the red/white cords? Do I need other cables? HELP! Wanting to hook up to big...


What your unidentified TV >>requires<< is the BEST Video from every video source. That would be the DVD, SAT Box. It probably has multiple high-end video inputs, right?

What your receiver needs is at least a basic composite video connection to the TV so you can set it up and manage it.

A web search for "Pioneer VSX-D308 manual" will find the manual.

ALL of the BEST Audio should go directly to the Pioneer. That includes the SAT and DVD player.

Your TV can exist just fine with basic audio from the video sources. And you could still watch it/them without the Pioneer turned of if you want.

I can't find the exact manual for free anywhere but if you download something similar like http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-D409-Receivers-manual/id/385ci977/t/2/ it should give you the basic guidance you need.

I recommend

Do some web searching for what the cables are for. It's all basic and standard.

How do I hook up my HD TV to the kenwood kr-v7080 so I can hear stereo TV ?


Maybe hook up the actual source of the TV audio (not necessarily the TV) directly to the Kenwood. Cable and SAT boxes have nice standard digital audio outputs. They're wasted on TV's which typically have sucko speakers. Lower-end analog audio is also available if you want to watch Cable/SAT throught the TV speakers.

I have direct satalite tv VR 6050 kenwood surround sound tuner vizio tv, dvd player, and a vcr, Im confused on how its hook up and what order should it go something like sat in to sat box to kewood...


that reciever is not going to carry a hi definition video signal, it doesnt have either hdmi or component video inputs.

you can still use it, but if you run the picture through the reciever, it will have poor quality.

heres how you are supposed to hook it up:

find the single,m yellow video jack on your sattelite box, and hook that up to the "tv" video input, then hook the laft and right audio outputs from the cable box into the "tv" audio left and right inputs on the receiver. hook up the dvd player and vcr in the same manner, using "dvd" and "VCR" (if labeled as such) inputs on the reciever.

finally, send the tv video and audio outputs to the composite video in and left/right audio inputs on the tv. the video will be running through the reciever, and when you use the reciever to switch the sound source, the video will also be changed. you could get better picture quality if you ran the video directly to the tv using component (seperate green, red and blue) outputs/inputs, and bypassing the reciever on the video end, but then you would have to change inputs on the tv AND reciever to change from your cable box to your dvd player.

Tv/sat output on my reciever does not work


Make sure your audio input for TV/Sat is set to "Auto" If you have video passing to your TV from the receiver its a lot easire to navigate sony's GUI menu (main Menu) if not, run a basic video cable from the "monitor out" of the receiver to a video input on the TV. Then, using the sony remote press "menu" toggle thru the screens until you find "Audio" look for "input" then TV/Sat then set to "Auto"

I'm pulling this from memory, so if you still have an issue, please post a reply and I'll pull the manual and help you further.

Amp freezes when tv channel is changed


Are you using the HDMI for video AND audio or just video? Are you using the reciever as the video switcher by routing your devices into the amp and then from the out of the amp to the TV and then back to the amp from the TV HDMI output and the digital output? You may have a loop going on and the amp can't handle it.
If you are coming out of the TV with both HDMI and digital hooked to the same input selection on the amp and have the amp set for auto signal select, it could be throwing the amp for a loop and causing it to freak. From what I can see in the specs for that amp it has 2 HDMI in for connecting a HiDef Sat/Cable box, a DVD or Blu-Ray player or a gaming console, and then 1 output to the TV. HDMI handles both audio and video. Disconnect the digital cable and just use the HDMI for both audio and video.
The optimal set up would be as follows:

With a cable or sat box with HDMI out, go to the HDMI input to the TV. From the TV use either HDMI OR digital to the amp, not both. If you have Blu-Ray or HDMI DVD, connect that to the other HDMI input on the TV.

If the TV has only 1 HDMI input then connect the Cable or Sat box to one of the amp HDMI inputs and the Blu-Ray/DVD to the other and then from the HDMI out to the HDMI in to the TV with NO audio cable from the TV to the amp. Then use the cable remote to change channels.

See if one of those connection maps works for you.

If you need more help, let me know. Include the TV model and the digital audio cable interface type, whether it is optical or coax. It would also help knowing if you are using a Satellite or Cable box and which one it is.
