Digital output is for the reproduction of 5.1 or higher surround sound.  Though it will support 2.0 audio it is not meant to be hooked up to a tv, but meant to be hooked up to a surround sound reproduction device.

How do I hook up a tv to a Sony D311 receiver


The Sony STR-D311 only has analog audio inputs. If your TV has an analog audio output, use the appropriate RCA cable (2 M/M plugs on each end, usually red and white). If your TV has a headphone jack, use a 3.5 mm to RCA adapter. However, if your TV only has digital audio outputs, you will need a digital to analog audio converter, like this: https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Optical-Analog-audio-converter/dp/B004C4WPXA . You will also need the appropriate analog audio and digital audio cables.

The manual for the receiver is on the product support page: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-find.pl?mdl=STRD311 . The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//STRD311.PDF .

I hope this helps.

How to connect digital home surround sound to analog tv


Analog TV will probably have at best 1 output: a headphone jack.
Most older analog TV's had no outputs at all, only inputs for vcr's.
If you are lucky enough to have an output, get a 3.5mm stereo (male) plug to red/white RCA (male) adapter cable.

Hi,can I record digital transmissions on my sony slv-se820g vcr barry


You can record a digital TV signal on a VHS VCR but only in analog format. The digital signal must be input to the VCR by some component which has a yellow composite video output and a white audio output such as a digital cable TV box or satellite receiver. For over-the-air digital TV, either the TV must output analog video or you need a DTV converter box connected to the VCR. Bottom line, the digital signal must be converted to analog for the VCR since VHS VCRs generally are analog recorders.

I have a problem with hiss coming from the sound bar (ZBase 550 HSD) when using my digital cable box. It is not an issue with PS3 etc. I have the sound on the cable box turned to max, but I still hear a...


Hello ZVOX Owner,
The hiss you hear is generated by the analog audio output of the cable box. The best way to eliminate this hiss to use the digital output of the cable box. The preferred way to do this is to connect the digital audio output of both your cable box and your PS3 to the your TV (I presume your TV has two digital audio inputs.)
Your TV has a digital audio output. You should connect the digital audio output of your TV to the digital input of the ZVOX.
This should reduce or eliminate the hiss and provide convenient video source selection via the TV.

Do i need to have the bose system turned on in order to watch tv or can i have the cable box bypass the bose receiver? I do not wish to use my bose for everyday tv. Thanks


If your TV has its own speakers you don't need to have the Bose turned on for Lo-Fi watching. Not knowing what your TV has for analog and digital inputs or your Cable Box has for analog and digital outputs...

The LS V20 has 3 analog inputs plus a Tape Loop, so you could have the Cable Box (not the TV) audio; and two (or three using the Tape Loop) other analog sources. NOTHING should need to route to the TV first. The Bose should get the audio from whatever you're watching directly from that source.

If the Cable Box has only one analog audio output available but the TV has a digital one

Since an analog audio output can be split you could 'share' the cable box audio with both the TV and the Bose. Digital audio may also be possible between the Box and the TV.

Adding another device to the system


Well, if analog works for you connect the CD player's analog RCA cables to the VCR inputs.

Can you imagine why you NEED to have the TV audio coming into the receiver from the TV? Are the TV's audio system or speakers superior to the audio section of every other source of TV-related programming? We hope not. Does the TV receive any programming that the receiver can not? Maybe games. I imagaine this MIGHT justify running analog TV audio back to the receiver.

Your cable box and your DVD player have both digital and analog audio outputs. The gray area is what your TV has for audio inputs. It could survive with simple RCA analog audio in from both and none to or from the receiver. Then you could watch Lo-Fi cable and DVD's without the receiver turned on.

That would free up the TV analog audio input for other things.

I imagine your DVD player is using one of the digital inputs on the receiver. If you have one each optical and coaxial audio output among your DVD and Cable Box you could place them in the two available diigital inputs.

Now, what about the CD's digital output? For stereo music you're not likely to be able to hear any difference between it and the analog input BUT it can still be connected digitally IF it has a coaxial output. Coaxial digital inputs can be shared.

Get an RCA-splitter and join the two units entering the coaxial audio input just before they enter that connection. Either will work just fine if you TURN THE OTHER ONE OFF when you want to us it.

No analog comming out of receiver when optical input is used .


as a rule...in order to get analog audio out of a receiver, it must have an analog input. you could use a digital to analog converter between the tv and stereo or come out of both of your source devices (ps3, cable) with analog to the receiver. good luck

I have a new digital tv but can't get my vcr/dvd player recorder to work. Can I use the converter box on a digital tv? will it work to record and play.


The output connection from the VCR/DVD needs to be different for the new digital TV. Instead of using the RF output from the VCR, use the video and audio outputs and connect them to the video and audio inputs on the digital TV. When you want to watch the VCR, select "video in" on the TV. The digital converter box should be hooked to the input of the VCR so you can record programs off-air.

Digital audio out jack


That output only works with digital signals (digital tv channels and digital audio from the hdmi in jack).
The HDLCD2600 has no analog out. Sorry.
