I recently purchased a Sony receiver to connect to my TV. I had it for a few months before I got around to installing it. I discovered that while the TV has an Aux, Video 1 and Video 2 modes, it comes in on Aux.
The receiver doesn't have an Aux setting. Is there anyway for them to play together?

DVD output (HDMI) to HDMI input on TV will transfer both audio and video from DVD to TV. Audio output on TV to unused Input on Yamaha receiver (Aux, CD, etc.). This hookup will allow DVD and TV channels audio playback through your Yamaha receiver. Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.
you need to have 3 pair of audio-in ports for that.
i think your sound system has 3 input ports.
1.tv in ->u can connect this to audio out of your tv
2: vcr in ->u can connect this to audio out port of vcr
3: aux in -> this can be connected to your TV Receiver
then you can use the soundsystem remote to switch between the source to listen one at a time.
pls come back if u have any thing more
This tv should have one or two 21 pin scart connector;s on the back, using a scart to rca (phono) adaptor you should be able get audio out, and this can be connected to your sound sty. note the level will be fixed not dependant on the volume setting. Hope this will help regards Derrick
The best way to get in contact with the team that can fix this problem is by facebook. While on facebook, type "I have a defective Sony TV" in the search bar. This will bring up a page that is moderated by the SonyListens Team.
Post a comment about your TV, be sure to list your model number and a description of what's wrong with it. Someone within a few days will give you more information as to what steps to take next. It will seem like a lot of hoops to jump through, but in the end will be worth the time it took, as Sony will offer you huge discounts on a newer TV (I recently went through this, and got a new 3D ready TV for about a quarter of it's suggested retail value). If you are not on facebook, they list a contact email address as SonyListens@am.sony.com
Also worth noting: if you have receipts for recent repairs or replacement bulbs, you can submit them along with the other info, and Sony should adjust the offer price to compensate.
One word of warning though, once you have started this process and have received an offer from Sony, you will only have a week to claim the offer, so make sure you have the funds to put down on a new TV before you start.
Hope this helps! :-)
I'm glad to provide the instructions to connect an iPod to the Sony Receiver. Depends upon the model, it is possible that the iPod can be connected to a Sony Receiver using a Digital Media Port Adapter. Purchase the Digital Media Port separately, connect the iPod to the Digital Media Port Adapter and then connect it to the Receiver. However, some Receivers are not compatible for connecting Digital Media Port Adapter. In that case, you can connect the Headphone output of the iPod to the Aux/Line input on the Receiver. Please provide the model # of the Receiver that you're using so that I can provide more information about the specific connections.Thanks for understanding.
I have the same problem it's the optical block going bad. Most expensive part in the TV. Repair cost $850 - $1200. Big Sony class action law suit against Sony. Settled out of court with extended warranties to June of 2009. I just called them and I am getting a run around. Recently offered to sell me another set at a discounted price but it's taking a month to get it replaced. They are in no hurry to respond at this point.
Your problem is related to HDMI technology not the Receiver. HDMI in it's current version 1.3b has worked out 90% of the current problems being reported by HDMI users. it's a problem with HDCP digital copyright protection and the recording industry not wanting us "consumers" to duplicate or record their DVD's. Your receiver and every other receiver with version 1.1,-1.2, & 1.2a just don't cooperate with BluRay and even HD Cable or HD Sat receivers. If you just purchased this receiver recently, return it and get an 09' model or equivalent with 1.3a or 1.3b HDMI technology. If this unit is "un-returnable" then, what needs to happen is you need to run component video and digital audio to the receiver OR Run your HDMI directly to your TV and run a Digital Coaxial to your DVD audio input on the receiver. Depending on how many sources you are running to the TV via HDMI will be limited to the TV's capability (how many HDMI inputs)
Now, if your TV is 50" or smaller, the difference between running HDMI and Component is unmeasurable to the human eye. So, if you have to run component, don't sweat it! just use good cable, ie. Monster, Phoenix, Translucent etc. I do theese installs every day, and I still prefer Component or DVI if available over HDMI. They just haven't proved the reliability to me yet and we're three years in! Hope this helps
Turntables do not produce "line level" audio which is what is required for input into the AUX on the receiver. If you do not have a phono input on the receiver, you must purchase a phono pre-amp. These are readily available for about $20. This will boost the output of the turntable to line level so you can use the AUX input on your receiver. That will resolve the problem.
