Have you selected the digital input through the audio setup? You can assign different digital inputs to various video inputs and this may solve the issue

Can't get my westinghouse tv to recognize dish network


Happy to help get that fixed right away!

You mentioned that your TV is not recognizing the DISH Network signal, since wedo not know how many TV's your receiver is able to support, or whether it's theTV1 or TV2 having the issue I will address them both.

The first thing we want to do is ensure that all connected components arepowered on (VCR, DVD Player, etc.). Check what channel or input your TV iscurrently on by powering the TV off then back on and noting the channel orinput that appears on screen when the TV is powered on.

If TV1:

Check what type of cable is used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you areusing a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver'sback panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4Out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4,if it has "Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver): Tune TVto channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, orHDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until pictureappears; most TVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or"Source" button. If the issue persists, check that theconnections between your DISH receiver and your TV are secure then reset thereceiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 seconds then plugging it backin. If not fixed then connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to thesame TV, using same cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. Ifit works with the other component then call us at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) foradditional troubleshooting, if it still doesn't work with the other componentthen the cable should be replaced.

If TV2:

Access "Modulator Setup" from TV1 by pressing the menu button(on the top left of DISH remote) then pressing the numbers 6-1-5. Tune TV2 tothe channel that appears under "TV2 Out" on screen. If stillno picture, verify the mode (air or cable) that TV2 is on. Then change themodulator setup to match this mode (air or cable). After changing modulatorsetup, tune TV2 to the channel that appears under "TV2 Out" onscreen. Check that the connections between your DISH receiver and your TV aresecure then reset the receiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 secondsthen plugging it back in. If not fixed then connect another component (VCR, DVDPlayer, etc.) to the same TV, using same cable, same input, and same channel tosee if it works. If it works with the other component then call us at1-800-333-DISH (3474) for additional troubleshooting, if it still doesn't workwith the other component then the cable should be replaced.

I am using a JVC RX6000 video audio receiver, and i hooked 5.1 BMB brand home surround speakers to it, and connected my ASUS media player that has optical output and used optical cable to connect to the...


Hi,
This is a common problem. Each input will default to analog. Even though you have plugged an optical cable into the inputs of the Receiver, you have to change that input to digital.
For example, if you connect a CD player RCA cables to the Receiver. The receiver will recognize the Analog signal at the CD input. If you unplug the Analog RCA Cables and plug in the Digital optical, the receiver will still be at it's normal default input for the CD player which is Analog. You then have to switch the input, using either the remote or it may be able to be done with the buttons on the front.
As soon as it is changed to Digital, you will get nice sound.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

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.

Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound Speakers


The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

Denon AVR 886 only shows analog input


Are your speakers able to handle the 886's power. I have the same reciever and changed by speakers as the Denon would turn off instead of frying the speakers.

As for the digital, have you used the option to change your audio feed and video feed. (for example - I'll show photos through the front input but use the CD -digital for music. Maybe the audio feed is locked onto an analog input. Just a suggestion.

I have a ViP 722. It has no rf output for TV1, just the hookup for TV2. The multi RCA hookup for HD. HD is not as important to me as is a clean picture and audio on my TV. No matter how I do it, I get a...


Okay I am not positive I have this right as far as the configuration of the system but I will give it a shot. If you run the 722 to the tv using rca's you get the hum. I assume this as there are no inputs on a dish 722 receiver. I can suggest one possible solution which is to buy an rf modulator. It will convert the signal from rca to coax so you can connect as you wish. There are several types out there so ensure you get the one that converts from rca to coax. I would suggest the following configuration: Remove all connections from tv and hook 722 up via rca's to rca input 1 on the tv, check for hum. If it is present now you need a new 722 as it is passing to much power thru the connection. If there is no hum connect your cable and tivo to the tv via whatever inputs you have remaining. Lastly connect the DVD player to another input that is free. You will have to system through your inputs to view the three sources but should not have the hum. I hope this solves your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

No output to Zone 2 from preout to 2nd power amp for second room speakers


OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.

Digital Audio moved from TV/SAT to DVD/LD


Using the remote control, push the left arrow until display shows Coax1 (or 2, depending on your setup), then push the up arrow to set it to TV/SAT.
Conversely, depending on your setup, you can push the left arrow to display Comp1 (or2) then push the up arrow to set the correct video setting-- DVD/LD I assume.
