SOURCE: Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1

It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.

SOURCE: I don't have a cable box and have hooked my Sony

What are you doing? Note the following:
The only cable you should connect to your TV from your X1 are the video cables
Logic is you want to use the system for sound and your TV for video only

  • If you have an LCD TV use the HDMI connection for video from your DVDs
  • If not the best video is using the component video (red green blue) i.e connect this to your X1 and your TV input
  • If your TV does not have this just use the video out composite (yellow). On the X1 it is indicated as Monitor
The reason why you do not have any audio from the TV is because you have not connected Audio Out from your TV to your X1. Do the following:
  • Identify if your TV has stereo audio out i.e A/V out should have red and white jacks
  • If this is the case connect this to your input on your X1 corresponding to TV
  • If your TV only has one Audio Out jack you need an RCU cable that has one to two pins and you would connect the single pin to your Audio out on the TV and the two (red/white) to your X1)
  • To listen to audio from TV simply set the input or source setting on your X1 to TV

Let know if this resolves your problem

Dav-x1 no audio


Most likely some one hit the wrong button on the remote. Make sure you have the proper device selected and the tv is setup for the proper device input. It is hard to tell you what is exactly wrong due that I do not know the full extend of your system.

I have been given a Sony SS-WSX1 subwoofer. However |I do not have the bespoke cabe. I need the pin out of the sub woofer to connect the unit to my system.


The sub was part of a Sony DAV-X1. This whole system is highly proprietary in its connections for a reason. For all anyone knows, the original amp's output was frequency-shaped to correct for speaker response issues, like Bose would do. Substituting a different amp may be electrically unwise and audibly unsatisfying. It is certain that the DAV base unit did all the electronic magic to create a surround effect from only 2 speakers and a sub.

Your best bet to put these speakers to use would be to examine the sub and speakers for two conductors each that would be for the amplifier's audio output. Measured across them wit han ohmmeter it would read somether around 6 ohms.

Then somehow craft a physical connector to carry an amp's speaker output to it and carefully test it with very low volume.

Need 5-digit code for universal remote on DAV-X1


There may be no code in the library of your Insight remote. You may have to try a different universal remote.
