Question about Sony STR-DE445 Receiver

1 Answer

We are unable to have sound for the DVD player and game systems

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

Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


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."

Having just installed a new Wii console I have good sound but everything is in fuzzy black and white - no colour at all. What should I do to get colour?


    • With the yellow, white, and red AV cables that came with your system:

      • Did you have to use the red/green/blue inputs on your TV because it doesn't have the standard (yellow) AV inputs

      • If this is your first time hooking up the Wii console or have you moved it to another TV, Our experience shows that many times this issue can be solved by double-checking your connection and finding the correct Input Select for your TV or VCR.


    • With the blue, green, white, and red component cables (sold separately):

      • Review our step-by-step Wii Component Cable connection guide to make sure the cables are properly inserted and that your TV is set to the proper input.

    If you have verified the connection is correct, and are still receiving a blank or black and white screen when powering on your Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700

We have sound but no picture on our Wii


Connect a DVD player using red white and yellow to the TV if you get picture and sound, then reconnect the wii red, white, and yellow to the same input.

If only the wii does not show video you will need new red white, and yellow cables. I would try a friends red, white, and yellow cables first even to their TV where their wii is already working.

If new cables are not working you will need to contact Nintendo as there is an issue with your wii. You can't change the wii video to progressive without a component kit, and since you have yellow you obviously don't have a component cable for the wii.

I can't figure out how to hook up a wii to a home theater system


On the back of your AVR (audio video receiver) where you connect a DVD, VCR or any other component. Example if there are open component jacks where you would connect a VCR just plug in the Yellow, Red and White cables. Turn your AVR to the source you connected to and turn on the TV. It should then play thru the speakers and be seen on the TV. Treat it just like a DVD player or any input source.
