If both receivers are plug into their own inputs on the back of the television, go into the remote set up screen and program the av1 or av2 as a seperate receiver. this will all the remote to send a different signal to the receivers so they wont change at the same time.

How to run tv from sat box and not have to turn on the reicer all the time. When I do want surround use the digital audio off sat box. Yamaha RX V377


If your SAT Box has multiple outputs, hook the HDMI output to your receiver so you can get full surround on movies etc. Connect the HDMI out on your receiver to an HDMI input on the TV. Run a composite or S-video connection from the sat box to the TV for regular TV viewing/listening without the receiver & speakers. I don't think you can get full HD over either of these cables, but you may be able to use the composite connections if they are available on your sat box and TV.

Dual remote set up


Kenneth,
I would be happy to assist you in setting up multiple remotes to the same TV. To do this is a quick fix. If you want the remote to control the TV1, make sure the remote has a green '1' tab in the bottom. Once that is done, access the system information screen and program the remote to the listed remote address. The steps are the same with the TV2 remote, except make sure there is a blue '2' as the bottom tab. I have provided the steps to program the remote below!
Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the number pad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test the remote and see if it works.

Tv/sat output on my reciever does not work


Make sure your audio input for TV/Sat is set to "Auto" If you have video passing to your TV from the receiver its a lot easire to navigate sony's GUI menu (main Menu) if not, run a basic video cable from the "monitor out" of the receiver to a video input on the TV. Then, using the sony remote press "menu" toggle thru the screens until you find "Audio" look for "input" then TV/Sat then set to "Auto"

I'm pulling this from memory, so if you still have an issue, please post a reply and I'll pull the manual and help you further.

Tv has only snowy screen. Used the remote to


What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.
Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

How do I escape from an input screen back to watching satellite tv? Screen reads first please connect all signals and antennas to jacks and terminals on the back of the tv then press the channel up key...


Looks like your set is not receiving the signal from the sat. receiver. Make sure that the audio/video cable is in good shape and connected correctly, then select the correct input on your tv. If that doesn`t work try to connect a dvd or vcr on the same cable, if that is still no go then you may have a bad audio/video cable or there is a problem with your tv set. If it does work(dvd/vcr) then you`ll have to check your satellite receiver. Hope this help. Good luck

Its not broken or nothin i was wondering how to put the input for cabel from cable/sat to colorstream hD1


Cable boxes or satellite receivers typically only come with audio/video output, RF output, and component output. You need an upgraded one which has the Hdmi output jack. The upgraded box will cost you a service fee around $5-10 a month, so if you don't want to pay to receive the 1080p service you can receive 720p by using the component video output leads from your cable box.

The quality is almost as good. The only difference will be that you won't be able to receive the hi-def channels that the cable company offers.

Screen is blue


Good Day, o_fraile;
Blue screen normally means your TV is not receiving a signal.
1. Reset TV by unplugging TV's A/C cord from source for 3 to 5 minutes...... plug back in
2. Do the same to "BOX" ( cable, sat & etc)
3. Make sure input is the correct, all inputs, turn DVD and others on and go through inputs.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
