RCA RTD 258 surround sound/dvd system
it worked fine for a year, all of a sudden the tuner stopped functioning. It always started at a non-channel with static wich is fine then we usually changed stations just fine, well it still starts at the same non channel but when we push the button to change stations, nothing happens. Can someone help?

unplugg your tuner from the AC wall outlet then check the setting on the tuner do not try to watch and listen to the tv only try to listen to the radio or a CD and select the right option on the tuner to do so. If you have sound on any of the functions....radio or CD/MP3 then the problem lies on the setting not correct for the TV/VCR/DVD mode.
I could only get surround sound for DVD, NOT cable/TV--regular audio jacks only give stereo for cable/tv, NOT surround sound. Very disappointing. Any thoughts/solutions for how to get surround sound? Cable box has digital output, but no input on the rtd 315, any help available? THX
A few questions...
What components are involved?
How are they connected?
Can you hear sound from the speakers for any other input device i.e. radio, cd, vhs, etc.?
I suspect that there is an issue with the way the system is connected.
I have the Surround sound output from my DVD player connected to the digital surround sound input on my reciever.
I'm using digital coax cable (looks like a "normal" RCA cable), not the optical fiber connection. I had to buy a special cable for the digital surround sound. A normal RCA cable would not work. I don't know why. If you're using a similar connection, that could be your issue.
make sure that the output and inputs you're using are compatible. A digital surround sound connection (in or out) can't be connected to an analog connector (in or out). Remember, Digital to Digital with a Digital capable cable; Analog to Analog with an Analog capable cable.
If this is not your issue, post back here with more info and we'll see what we can figure out.
I reccommend live service with me, but I can definitely help. Please mark this as solved and we will arrange a time to work setup out.
The question should be marked as solved because the one ANSWERABLE question, about the DVD being recorded, is NO, unless it is a home movie. Not only is it illegal, but also VERY difficult to do. and your equip is not cabable.
yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit.
well for one thing .. on cable it has to be in surround sound.5.1 or 6.1 for it to true surround.your dvd and cd will be fine .. if you just want to have sound coming out of all speakers you have to adjust your sound settings but it will not be surround sound though
