You need a coax wire from DVD coax to Receiver Coax input. Don't put the red and white wire from DVD to Receiver because you don't need it. Thats what the coax wire those.
try and see if that works.

I have a 11 TFT LCD Monitor with DVD US-DVD-1140 Ultrasonic Mounted on my roof of our van we turn it on it works but there is no sound can you please help us fix it thanks have a great Day!


Since the VIDEO (Picture) and Audio (sound) are Two separate and distinct functions (although they work in concert with one another) you can have either sound with a picture or visa-verse. If the audio is self-contained, meaning sound comes from internal speakers within the Monitor, then the problem can be a defective Audio section or short on the circuit board.
If the Speakers are the Honda sound system, then there could be a disconnect between the Monitor and the Honda sound system.

Why does my avr 100 say OPTI.when i try to play the radio, and no sound comes out


It is trying to input a signal via the Optical digital input. You need to switch the input control on the front panel or remote to Analog.

I have a Pioneer vsx-919 receiver an an LG TV. The problem is: Using an HMI cable I have hooked my cable box to an in port of the receiver, then put a an HMI cable from the out port of the receiver to an...


Assuming a single cause we need to isolate which single device is involved in all these failure modes.

"It comes out of both speakers" on what - the TV?

You don't say how the DVD interefaces with the receiver. Is the DVD feeding digital multichannel audio out at that time? Many DVD's are simple stereo until the show actually begins. You know that.

Try running an HDMI connection straight to the TV from the cable box. Result?

Substitute the other HDMI cable for the first one. Result?

If either one does NOT work satisfactorily we may have part of the problem isolated.

If they both work, the TV and cables are ok.

Attach the HDMI out of the receiver and IN to the TV and the HDMI from the Cable Box as before. Same result?

Can you try using Component Video out of the receiver to the TV just to change something in the equation? On my rig I 'see' no difference between HDMI and Component Video on my HDTV. A change in the result may help to isolate or work around part of your problem.



My $.02...

I'd recommend you go for minimal receiver involvement in the video side other than to send composite video to the TV from "Monitor Out" so you can set up and manage the receiver.

You can also send Cable- or Sat Box basic analog audio directly to the TV if it has inputs for audio. That way if you just want to watch the news or weather you don't need to fire up the Pioneer.

Your video sources (DVD, BD, Cable/Sat) will suffer fewer video anomalies if you send their best video directly to the TV and their best audio directly to the receiver. That way everything is handled only once by the best electronics you have for each function.

I could be sitting right in my driveway and i put in a DVD, how come it keep saying can not function this while driving??


The reason why is because the receiver is not registering that you have a constant ground connected to the parking brake. Depending on the model, you should be able to hook the wire that tells you parking brake up to the ground wire of the receiver. If that doesn't work, then you are going to need to use a switch that is hooked up directly to ground. Based on the last Pyle receiver I saw, you should be able to do the parking brake wire to ground and be fine.

NO AUDIO/set up problems


For this Sony, you have to use separate audio cable(s). Either optical in BD or Digital Audio in DVD (single coaxial cable will do the trick) I bet the display says UNLOCK. I had the same problem, very dumb.

Good day!

We are unable to have sound for the DVD player and game systems


The receiver is looking for a specific "audio input" It's currently locked on analog or digital. Using the Sony remote, go into the main menu for the receiver, toggle to audio and select "auto" that should do the trick. Hope this helps

Harmon Kardon unlock error


I have the same problem. All of a sudden no sound through my TV connection (but through the DVD connection the sound was still working). I changed the connection from video 1 to video 2 and got the sound back. It is not a real solution, but a practical one :-)
