Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

Having problems with HDMI connection from COMCAST Motarola HD Dual TUNER DVR HDMI DCH6416 to Panosonic Home Theater system SA-PT660 to AKAI LCD HDTV. There is only one HDMI Output on the COMCAST box; one on the Panosonic Receiver DVD Player; and only one on the AKAI LCD HDTV, Want to know the best possible connection for the very best picture? Can you make a recommendation before I buy a bunch of HDMI Cables; optical audio cables; etc...? Thanks Mike

    DickCanFixit:



    Got the HDMI cable hooked up - had a good connection from the ComCast Cable Box and from the Panasonic Receiver. Put LCD back up hooked up everything and now the HDMI doesn't from either of the components. Is it possible that the AKAI LCD has a bad HDMI Input? Currently working with S-Video in coming out of the ComCast and fourth best YPbP2 cables from the DVD/Surround Sound - working, but not the best. How can we test the HDMI cables (2 Ea) to make sure they aren't bad?



    thanks, MJB1057

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

    The way I would test the two cables is try them directly to the TV from the cable box and the blu-ray player.

How to connect a blue ray player with the sc pt760 sound system with dvd?


According to the models you provided it looks like the DVD player has only HDMI out and the sound system you have does not directly support that. I would suggest purchasing a HDMI audio extractor so that you can covert the digital signal from your blu-ray to an analog signal. However, there are other ways of doing this. If you provide me with your TV that you use I might be able to advise another work around.

Go on google and look for "hdmi audio converter" or "hdmi audio Extractor".

Make sure to look at review to determine the quality of the product and decide what device fits your budget.

I need the exact location of the IR sensor on the front panel of a Motorola DCH6416 cable box.


Do this like mine sweeping. Grab the remote and put it right up to the front of the box. Press the channel up or down keys as you move the remote across the front of the box. You'll get to a point where the box responds well. Then as you go past the point the box will stop reacting so well. Home in to the point where the box responds well. That's your point for the blaster.

My dch6416 will only display a zero?


Sounds like the program may be hung up. First try a hard reset which means you need to unplug it from the power strip. Wait 15-20 seconds, then plug it back in and see if that resets the program. If that doesn't help, try the 800 number that you used when you first turned it on out of the box. Lastly call your cable provider.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Sc-pt660 + 46pz85u = NO SOUND!


Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection


HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.

what you need to do is look at you HD DVR box and see if you have an "optical" port on the back then check and make sure your home theater box has an "optical" port. if they do all you have to do is go to radio shack and pick up an audio OPTICAL cable and go between your HD DVR and your home theater box.
