Does your reciever use a remote control?

If so, you should be aware that on many recievers and surround amplifiers some of the functions may only be accessible via the remote control (the best way to learn about it is to consult the user manual).

I have a Pioneer VSA-730 surround amplifier and the only way i can change the mix levels for surround/sub/center speakers is by a remote control. My friend had the same problem and, after reading the manual, he discovered that he actually needs to use the remote control to access all functions of the amplifier.

Good luck and best regards

Hi, assuming you can pickup a good digital TV signal online, you can certainly connect your digital audio output to the receiver using a standard Toslink cable with a Toslink mini-plug adapter. Here is an example of the cable you would need: http://www.nextag.com/norob/PtitleSeller.jsp?nxtg=7420a280505-3C5E1BE5D8BAF95C&chnl=main&ptitle=661011573&tag=888720410&ctx=jGibfICWCJ8Pl1v84x0Fy0POJ0U8nsKWXqtnWffvJ8FyQWcSXVGi1g9vyaWcaQl6ez45TKa57b5%2FQPHsf2qbe7UPiIvmhplfDiwRnUeRnuNffo5Uly2xM1dEbpxXiXph1zleMHrrwwQeoDFKL%2FFIFArXNlVU9QjoOHhXQmBAi%2FejvazjML5Cf%2BWhD4Y3DTkyoFZ4OkNC4quT8cPJ9p50Tjw0CICjAeGhwBq1G62s1KCHMhMj6UM65iXNpmD3t%2FW1fbp4ZeY9JF9YbzlzYf8ALD%2FrmBi6C2P5okVECy3ZzIw%3D

This will connect to the optical input of your receiver. You can read a bit more here: http://hometheater.consumerelectronicsnet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=47126

Are you intending to also export the video to a TV? For that, all you need is a VGA cable to hook to the VGA port on the Mac. I'm assuming your TV has a VGA input, or you would need a VGA to video adapter.

I hope this is what you were asking for. If not, please let me know and I'll try again.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I have a Yamaha HTR 5960 receiver hooked up to a Klipsch 10" synergy sub. The system has been set up for about 6 years and the sub suddenly quit working. I have checked connections and the sub is getting...


If you remove the signal cable from the amplifier while the Sub is switched on (turned down about half way) you should hear a thump sound. If you do that proves that your sub is working and you need to look at your Yamaha. Perhaps the sub channel has been disabled in the logic settings. Check the speaker configuration pages. If all looks well reset your amp to factory settings and try again. I have had a logic glitch which was fixed in this way.

How do i biamp these speakers they have a biamp plug in the rear do i need a special cable to do this


The two input jacks are parallel connected, to allow you to chain extra speakers together. There is no facility on this model to bypass the crossover and bi-amplify horn and driver separately. Nor should you need to. Just make sure you use a power amp rated for at least 400 watts per channel at 8 ohms.

Powers on and then off when i try to turn it on


Sounds like a capacitor fail. Take it apart and look for bad capacitors. They look like little soda cans. With silver tops. These should be flat . If they are bulging and leaking something or just budging replace them . Remember these have a + and a - side replace them in the same order.
REMEMBER CAPACITORS HOLD A CHARGE SOMETIMES ENOUGH TO KNOCK YOU OUT OR KILL YOU.

PCM mode will not output dobly digital, use the digital cable connection, not RCA cables, set DVD audio output menu to Dolby digital or DTS. On DVD software menu setup select audio then Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby Surround.
