Question about Sony STR-DE597 Receiver

Just hooked up Coax cable; now talking is barely audible

We recently added a VHS/DVD-R to our system and hooked the latter into the Sony via a Coax cable. Now the surround sound is awesome, but we can barely hear the dialog & have to use closed captions. What are we doing wrong?

Is the center speaker turned up in the reciever speaker settings? each speaker can be adjusted to a level that is higher or lower or all the same as the rest. also is the dolby digital turned on in the reciever settings? and changing the surround sound pre set sounds can also improve the type of audio you are listening to in 6.1 surround sound

Hip shot: No one let's you record digital audio onto analog equipment (yet).

On looking at Page 26 of the manual, that is verified. (See the Notes). Use only the analog audio and it will probably work for you. The A/D switch decides which you will use.

I hooked up a Diamond Vision dvdv 807-04 multimedia player to a Toshiba VCR via RCA cables; to an Emmerson analog TV which only has a RF coax cable connection. I get audio but a ghostly video that isn't...


This DVD player cannot be hooked up throught the VCR due to a copyright protection in the sofware. You must go direct to the RCA jacks of the TV and select that input.

Do they make a DVD/VHS Combo with a built in decoder that will connect to my Analog TV using only a coaxil cable?


99.99% of the combo units that have a tuner inside have been phased out.
You do need an external tuner to get cable through to the combo unit. The only combo units that I have seen that has a tuner in it already and hooks up to the coax is one that is a vhs/dvd RECORDER and not just a vhs/dvd PLAYER. You pay extra for the built in tuner and also for the dvd recording features.

Insignia ns-lcd32-09 wont play VHS


Yes, that is correct you need composite (or coax) cabling to your TV. The unit cannot carry the VHS signal via component video or digital audio cabling

Hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre


From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Cannot get dts from my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 via my Blue Ray


I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:

I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...

Hope this helps...

Hook up vcr


yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)
