Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver
I have a yamaha 300 watt receiver. I have a large screen t.v. I have 6.1 speakers. I have a HDMI cable. I have a dvd player. How do I connect all the items together. I want surround sound from my TV and the DVD player.
all my speakers are not playing .on a onkyo ht -R500
HDMI is fantastic in that's the only thing you need to plug in to get what you want.
You'll need two of them however. Plug one end of the HDMI cord into the HDMI "OUT" on the dvd player and the other end of it to the receiver..labeled HDMI 'IN' Then, take the second cord and do that step with the receiver back to your big screen...HDMI OUT to IN.
Surround sound from TV sources only needs a L&R audio cable connected to the receiver input labled TV or MONITOR audio IN. Unless you'd like 5.1 dolby digital or DTS from the television that requires devices that you haven't mentioned owning. In that case you will be able to get Dolby ProLogic and Pro Logic II from stereo broad casted sources on your TV.
