Question about RCA RT2600 System

1 Answer

Multiple Video Sources hooked to RT2600, but only DVD shows

Hello and thanks, I just bought a used RT2600 A/V Receiver. The main purpose was to play multiple Video Sources (DVD-S, VCR-comp, TV-comp, WII-comp) on my wall via a Projector. Everything is hooked up, each A/V source to its Input and the Projector to the 'S' video Output. The only Input that will play out to the Projector is the DVD player. None of the items using the yellow video component jacks will play to the Projector. The Audio works fine. Am I doing something wrong? Is this a known problem with these units with a known fix? Please help, I want to play WII on the wall...

I own the RCA RT2600 Home Theater System. I have never set it up, it has never been used. I have someone who wants to buy just the receiver and nothing else. I am wondering what you paid for just the receiver? I don't want to break up the system but I need money right now. I am open to suggestions as to what to do and how much to sell them for.

Thank-you

I am trying to hook my pioneer vsx-455 up to my samsung dlp-hd tv and have no idea which pre-outs to use.any help would be greatly appreciated.or do i need to go through the cable box and if so how?


Ok. Where does the TV programming originate? Antenna, TV, or (usually) the Cable Box. I'll tell you sight unseen, no TV ever adds to the audio experience. many of us watch on monitors so that would suggest that a TV can play absolutely no part in the high-end audio experience. It's specialty is video with basic audio capacity thrown in. A Cable Box is for all purposes a digital audio and video source with separate outputs for each. Keeping with my practice I'd run the BEST VIDEO (and minimum audio in case you want to use TV speakers for that source) from each video source to the TV (it has multiple inputs, right?) and the BEST AUDIO (no video) from each source to the receiver. One video connection from the receiver to the TV for set-up/control. This requires some switching on your part to watch different sources but it eliminates troublesome and unnecessary routing and handling of the individual signals.

I see only two potential HDMI sources - Cable and DVD. You have three possible inputs to choose from. BTW: Composite Video is also HD in an analog form. Keep it in mind for the future.

You have an HDMI Out for feeding one input on the TV.

Ponder why all the devices have separate (and multiple) high-end audio and high-def video paths. This is what I do...

NO signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops' and it gets expensive zig-zagging a signal all over the room especially if it only passes through a device on the way to another one with no improvement. K-I-S-S is the word of the day. Run the BEST version of any signal directly from its source to the BEST electronics that will present it to you for consumption.

What your unidentified TV >>requires<< is the BEST Video from every video source. That would be the DVD, SAT Box. It probably has multiple high-end video inputs, right?

What your receiver needs is at least a basic composite video connection to the TV so you can set it up and manage it.

A web search for "Pioneer VSX-D308 manual" will find the manual.

ALL of the BEST Audio should go directly to the Pioneer. That includes the SAT and DVD player.

Your TV can exist just fine with basic audio from the video sources. And you could still watch it/them without the Pioneer turned of if you want.

I can't find the exact manual for free anywhere but if you download something similar like http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-D409-Receivers-manual/id/385ci977/t/2/ it should give you the basic guidance you need.

I recommend

Do some web searching for what the cables are for. It's all basic and standard.

TV/DVD surround sound through receiver


Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

I need to know what is the basic things to do and the different gadgets and accessories in audio and visual setup..thank you


Most home theater components are simple and named after their functions, here are the more complicated devices:

Receiver - receives a digital or analogue sound signal from one or more audio sources (such as TVs, game consoles, computerss, media players, etc) and processes the sources into a high voltage speaker signal. Receivers these days typically support 8 or more speakers (eg; 7.1 - 7 speakers and a subwoofer)

Switch - allows you to plug multiple video sources and a video output into it and control which source you wish to view, usually with a switch, dial, or multiple buttons.

HTPC - Home Theater PC, a computer built for the purpose of playing a library of movies, games, music and more from a built in or external hard drive. Modern HTPCs also include BluRay drives to eliminate the need of a dedicated BluRay or DVD player.

Zone 2 speakers only work with the tuner - no sound comes out when switched to DVD, Cable/SAT, ect. All of my other devices (DVD player, Satellite Receiver, ect.) run through the receiver. How do I get...


hi,

zone 2 will only work with analog sources so if your dvd, cable and other devices are connected via HDMI, that alone won't work. What you need to do is hook up RCA (red and white) cables from the dvd player to dvd in of the receiver and same thing for your satellite box (and other sources.) no need to change any setting on the receiver. This way, the HDMI will take care of your main room speakers and the RCA will feed your zone 2 speakers.

Hope this helps.

Won't play dvd


we have two options in this case:
  1. the receiver is your main brain:
you hook up the dvd in the receiver and the tv works as a monitor (the receiver has to have video output to monitor)

2. anyone works at its own:
in this configuration the DVD (video) is hook up into the tv (any video tv input works fine) and audio goes to the receiver in any audio input.
