Sony Receiver STR-DH520 shuts off every 30 minutes when playing DVD

Does not do this when watching TV. All was well until someone played with settings when trying to hook-up an old VHS player. Now when set on BD/DBVD to watch a pre-recorded DVD the receiver shuts off after 30 minutes of play time.

on the ps3 in audio options you have to set it so that the sound is going through the optical and not the hdmi. this it was I think the problem is.

Yes, it would downgrade.


Simply run an HDMI cable to the LCD from the DVD player. Now, use the digital audio output of the DVD player to run to the receiver. I know the Sony has an optical input which i recommend over the coaxial input as the optical cable doesnt waste any energy as a medium transferring sound since its only light.

SOURCE: I am setting up Sony A/V Rcvr and cannot get video

hi my names josh your feeds arent going to feed out through that hdmi if your have hdmi coming in you will get that signal going out however depending on what your signal source is for the rest of your compenents that will determine your problem for instance if you if your runing all compenent which y p b or video which is just standard yellow red and white cables you have to stay with one or the other what you go into your reciever with you must go out with if analog wich is just video and audio you have to go out through your monitor out source to get a picure if compenent whic by the way will produce a far greater picture it is your y p and b jacks and the color of those are green blue and red those are just for picture only not audio you have to still run audio with these cables you go in the unit with those you have to go out with those directly to your tv then you want check you reciever video setting to make sure it is set for that and well as your tv to make sure you are in the right monitor or screen to get your picture

How do I adjust the treble and bass on sony str-dh520?


See EQ Mode on page 59 of the owners manual to set the bass and treble for the front speakers, presumably for 2 channel mode. For multi-channel mode there are several pre-programmed audio modes listed starting on page 43 and music mode starting on page 44.

Receiver won't play music from an MP3 device


Use your computer speaker as the sound device or use a headphones.

If it sounds good, it could just be your cable that goes to the receiver.

( using a Y cable to connect to one of the regular audio inputs.)

or have one like these:

How do I get video input from one source and audio from another?


I am confused and might be overlooking something obvious here. SO PLEASE do not think I am being disrespectful! IF you have everything connected properly, then your television is a separate device, independent of your Sony STR. You should be able to watch the picture with the Sony STR turned OFF. In turn, you should be able to LISTEN to the Sony STR with the television turned off. Although it isn't a lot of fun, it might be best to DISCONNECT all the cables (not your speaker wire) and go through the process of reconnecting everything.
