Question about Sony STR-DE445 Receiver
My son detached his Wii cables (white, yellow, red) from the receiver to attach a new Xbox 360. In the process, he must have touched or detached something as we have lost sound for the DVD player and the game systems. When I check for sound for aux, tuner and tv, they are all okay. It is when I try Dvd that the sound is nonexistent. A message appears on the receiver saying "unlock". We are unable to find the manual for the receiver. Do we have the cables in the wrong places or do we have to reset the receiver somehow to unlock the DVD?
The receiver is looking for a specific "audio input" It's currently locked on analog or digital. Using the Sony remote, go into the main menu for the receiver, toggle to audio and select "auto" that should do the trick. Hope this helps

First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv
Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.
Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.
To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.
When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"
When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."
