SOURCE: Hook cable box to this receiver

I have similar situation with my TXDS 565 and could not video out of my unit after hooking up the cables properly in and out of the unit for all auxilary modules... I assume that you have tried to place your vid IN from the cable box to your units vid IN and run a vid OUT cable or S cable to your TV. If this doesn't work for you as it did not for me, then you must run your cable direct to the TV vid IN and run your audio out from the TV audio Out back to your reciever as audio IN in the Video I or II ports on the reciever unit. This will give you audio control through the rec. unit.

I suspect that my is damaged and will not function properly; yours may be too,

My unit is about 10 years old and repair is too expensive so I will run it this way until something else fails and I will replace it... probably not Onkyo.,'

Let me know if I clearify any of this.

SOURCE: No Audio thru Optical input

If its a PS3 please realize that you adjust the sound options using the sound option menu on the ps3, so its possible that you have the PS3 set to RCA cable and not the HDMI therefore the optical cable isnt getting any sound from the TV

SOURCE: 8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up

Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

SOURCE: No audio from TV on Harmon Kardon AVR35 Receiver

I am attaching some pictures that will show a couple of wiring schemes based on the type of home theater you have. If you have questions with the set up of your HK receiver, please reply with those questions prior to rating your help.

SOURCE: digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver

I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

Would like to connect onkyo TX-DS494 to my television to play the television sound thru the receiver


To get the sound into the Receiver you don't need to go from the TV. On the back of the cable box there are a pair of audio outputs. Connect those to the inputs on the Onkyo. When that is done you need to select the input on the Onkyo to match the input that you have wired it to. You will then have audio come through your system.

How to connect a vizio lcd hdtv to my 1976 kenwood KVA 503. My Vizio has no speaker outputs except a digital optical audio. I had it hooked up before and then moved and now I can't get it back...


Obviously the digital optical connector was never connected to the vintage Kenwood.

It sounds like your Vizio is NOT the actual root SOURCE of the TV audio but it's coming from a Cable Box which DOES have various audio outputs. Connect it as you would any other analog audio source (except don't use the PHONO input).

Onkyo TX-SR604 provides audio thru receiver but no video on Bravia LCD when satellite receiver signal is sent thru any of the Onkyo HDMI connections to tv, however if I connect up my Samsung DVD recorder...


easiest fix is to take all hdmi straight to tv. then come out of tv with optical cable to your receiver. that way what ever your watching will automatically be sent to the receiver thru optical. you even will get dolby dig. also you can have audio from your tv when you dont want to use your surround. keeps receiver on one input also.

Onkyo 6.1 surround


Check the settings on your cable box for "Audio" settings and check the output. Should be set to "Dolby Digital" If you need more help, post a comment with the make and model of your cable box and I can walk you thru setup. Hope this helps

No sound is coming through my Onkyo receiver from the cable box


The Playstation 3 automatically broadcasts video and audio through HDMI even when an optical audio cable is ran to the receiver. If your TV has an optical audio out, it's just best to run everything into the TV including audio, and then run the optical cable from the TV to the reciever. It's less confusing and less buttons/remotes you have to use when you want to change devices, i.e. Cable/PS3/DVD

I hooked up a fiber optic cable directly from a samsung hdtv to my onkyo surround sound system. Sound, however, does not come out of the speakers. Also, I am running cable directly to the tv from the wall...


Make sure that the place it is plugged into the TV is an output and not an input for the fiber optic cable, and the place it is plugged into the Onkyo is an input and an output for the fiber optic cable. This can be connected backwards very easy. Then you want to make sure that the Onkyo is properly set on the right function to listen to the TV. Check your owners manual on how to set up the optical input and have it assigned to the function you are trying to use. Sometimes these type of receivers have an input mode button that you can set to "optical" or "analog" or "digital" or "auto". Try changing those settings after you make sure the TV optical is an "OUTPUT" and the optical on the Onkyo is a "INPUT".

After you have these thing set right you should be able to listen to it like this.

I hope this helps, if you need more help just reply back on this post, but please give more detail about the connectors and on the TV and the Onkyo, and about the digital input settings on the Onkyo. It would also help to know the model numbers of both the TV and the receiver. There is no way to check out what each of your devices are capable of doing without knowing the model numbers to look up the specs.

Thanks,

Dave

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
