Question about Kenwood VR-2080

Open Question

New Component Code?

I have a Kenwood VR-2080 I purchased 10 years ago. I recently bought a new HD LCD TV and added a DirecTV HD DVR. I want to use my receiver and Bose Surround sound system for the audio. My user manual has a 1-800 number to call for adding new components. When I call this number nobody answers. It is listed as 1-800-753-9860. Is there a new number or a place I can get the component code to add my TV and/or satellite receiver?

Do I even need this to set up the component to get the audio from the TV to play thru the receiver? I have the digital video cable from the TV connected to the video 3 optical input jack.

    I contacted Kenwood via their web site and here's their reply:

    Thank you for contacting Kenwood USA Corporation. As an authorized agent for
    Kenwood, we are responding to your recent email inquiry.

    Futureset was the company that handles the remote coding. However, the company is
    has been out of business for quite some time. So there are no update codes
    available.

    Please feel free to contact us again with any additional questions.

    I then called their tech support number. I was not getting any sound out of the receiver other than from the CD player. I was told I don't need the IR codes to set up Video 3 or Video 4 inputs. A test of the output by sending a test tone thru the system revealed I have some sort of failure in the receiver. Off to the repair shop I go.

Hello,
The best way to do this is to connect you dish network receiver is directly to the tv. Try to use the best video type possible. HDMI is the best, next is component and lastly is composite. This will take care of the video portion. Next, connect digital audio output to the Kenwood Receiver. I dont know what type of a digital audio output your dish box has, but your kenwood receiver has both optical and coaxial inputs so you should be fine there. Once you have both audio and video wired, change the inputs on both your tv and kenwood receiver to the inputs you are connected to. You might need to set up the kenwood to tell it that your running digital audio to it in the setup menus. Hopefully this helps, let me know if you need any clarification.
Good Luck

Remote codes for directv HD DVR and westinghouse tv


2. Locate the 5-digit code for your TV (see pages 13-16).
3. Move the slide switch to TV.
4. Press and hold in the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same
time until the green light under the TV icon flashes twice
and then release both keys.
5. Using the number keys enter the 5-digit code for your
brand of TV. If performed correctly the green light
under TV will flash twice.
6. Aim the remote at your TV and press the power key
once. The DIRECTV Receiver should turn off. If it does
not turn off, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying each code for
your brand until you find the correct code.

Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

Cant get the wiring figured out.........


I have a similar set up. For yours, I would run one optical from your Sat box to your 407 and connect the DVD player optical to the Kenwood as well. This will allow you to get whatever your watching, DVD or Satellite to your speakers. For Video, use the component cables to connect DVD player to TV. For the SAT box, coaxial to TV or S video to TV will give you about the same video quality. I hope this helps. A couple of suggestions: Your new screen size will greatly magnify the quality of your video, what looked good on the Sharp may not look good on the Samsung due to the size difference. I REALLY suggest you get a new SAT box with a HDMI connection. Also you can get a blu ray player in the $120 range. The Blu ray will play blu rays and upconvert DVDs to a higher quality picture through its HDMI connection. You will be amazed at the difference HDMI will make on how your TV will look!

TV is HD correct? Use the Y/CB/CR from the Sat to the TV. Use the Digital optical cable for sound from the sat to the receiver. Use the s-video from the dvd player to the tv and the l/r to the receiver for sound. I would suggest upgrading to another set of Y/CB/CR cables to connect your dvd to the TV and benefit from better picture. Also, buy another optical cable for dvd sound (so you can enjoy surround sound). Your receiver has two optical inputs so youre covered there.

Kenwood VR-405


more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!
