Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
Help! I connected my cable box to the receiver with S-Video and Digital Audio Coax -- worked fine. TV is connected with S Video. I then connected my DVD and VCR and realized I had to go to the lowest common denominator, composite connections as the VCR had no SVideo. VCR is all composite, DVD is now composite video and digital audio. I added a yellow composite video out to the TV (Monitor Out) and left the SVideo. Wii Game console also added via composite.
Now there is no audio/video from Cable box, audio only from vcr, DVD, Wii. Disconnect Svideo completely and run Cable Box with Yellow Composite video out. Everything on all sources now works except the digital Coax from the cable box. If I switch the cable box to all analog, it then works too...
Why can I not get the Dig Coax to work from the Cable box??? And why can't I run both SVideo and Composite from the Receiver to the TV -- I thought it could do that. And yes, I did assign the Dig Coaxials correctly from the DVD (which works) and the Cable Box (which does not). Thanks for any help, I know my source equipment is outdated but it is what we have for now . Maybe someday.....
1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]
2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".
