Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Open Question

My Marantz SR 4400 Receiver. I hooked up blu ray to it with an optical audio cord. When It gets loud or I'm not sure of the cause the reciever turns off and I can't turn it back on until I unplug it and plug it back it. This keeps happening especially at high volumes

SOURCE: Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

SOURCE: No Audio when I play Blu-Ray discs with Dolby TrueHD

For dolby digital to work you have to have the optical or coax cable hooked up to the reciever ,The HDMI cable is for digital video and audio output but does not support dolby digital out the cable into your reciever , so just turn off the dolby digital on your reciever and you should hear the sound.
here is more info

Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless multi-channel audio codec developed by Dolby Laboratories which is intended primarily for high-definition home-entertainment equipment such as Blu-ray Disc. It is the successor to the AC-3 Dolby Digital surround sound codec which was used as the audio standard for DVD discs. In this application, Dolby TrueHD competes with DTS-HD Master Audio, another lossless codec from Digital Theater System.
Dolby TrueHD uses Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) as its mathematical basis for compressing audio samples. MLP was used on the earlier DVD-Audio format, but details of TrueHD and DVD-Audio differ substantially. A Dolby TrueHD bitstream can carry up to 14 discrete sound channels. Sample depths up to 24 bits/sample and audio sample rates up to 192 kHz are supported. Like the more common legacy codec Dolby Digital, TrueHD bitstreams carry program metadata. Metadata is separate from the coding format and compressed audio samples, but stores relevant information about the audio waveform. For example, dialog normalization and Dynamic range compression are controlled by metadata embedded in the TrueHD bitstream.

SOURCE: I have the following hardware:

Remove the HDMI cable (out) to the speakers from the receiver.
Connect regular speaker wire from the receiver to the speakers.
Of course, remove the (now extra) HDMI cable from the tv.
That will remove the loop.

SOURCE: Got a Kenwood vr405 surround receiver, a Sanyo

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

No audio produce in optical connection


Hi,
Typically when you use the optical connector from a DVD player there are several steps to getting everything ready to hear sound.

First: The Marantz Receiver will have a setup menu option for changing the DVD player to "optical" or it will say "digital" input. Once this is done, you should immediately get Sound.
Secondly, the DVD player (may) have an option to be switched to a digital output through the optical port. You would be able to find this out with it's user manual.
I really hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Have to turn way up in order to hear


Have you gone into the TV's menu to make sure that the audio outoput is not set to "variable"?

On my Sony I have the option to set the audio output as "fixed or "variable"

make sure its set to fixed

if that's not it try a different input on your receiver. you can use anything EXCEPT PHONO.

Lastly on my Denon receiver I have to specify how each input should get its signal if you are using an optical cable then you may have to go into the menu and tell it to look for a digital signal not an analog one.

Hope that helps

Audio glitch on Marantz SR-19


It's probably not heat due to the Marantz' large frame and heat-synchs.
This could simply be a mismatch of impedance. The amp is 120w per channel, so make sure the speakers can handle this. Check the impedance (ohms) of the speakers and the amp as well. Clipping can be caused by overpowering the speakers, which could damage the speakers in the long-run.
If this is only from 1 source- (i.e.- Blu-ray player or cable) then it could be digital clipping.. This Marantz can decode 96kHz PCM or normal Dolby Digital & DTS. If this is a Blu-ray it may be streaming 192kHz PCM... (but most likely the Marantz will not even attempt to play that audio)
I hope this helps.

Ghosting effect???


The video switching on your receiver is bad. This is a sore spot in an otherwise excellent unit. IFfit is out of it's 3 year warr. the repair will be prohibitive so I suggest getting a video switcher and use it instead. Some of them can be programmed to work with the Marantz remote so you don't have to switch with 2 remotes.
