Question about Sony STR-DE597 Receiver

1 Answer

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

So the other day I wanted watch the baseball game and have my music playing instead of the TV commentary. The Cable TV is on Video 2 input, and my music is on Video 1 input. How do I get my receiver to take the video input from Video 2 and play the audio input from Video 1?

    Right. You are overlooking something. The whole point of the receiver is for convenient switching between different sources. Here's my setup:

    1. A TV that has ONE component input (and crappy sound I might add).
    2. A DVD player - component out
    3. A Comcast DVR/HD cable box
    4. This STR receiver.

    A/V input from DVD player are going to DVD on the STR. A/V input from the Comcast cable box going to Video-2. Computer/ipod audio input going to Video-1. One video output going from my STR to my TV. Do you get it?

    If my TV had TWO component inputs, this would be a non issue. And BTW, of course I can listen to my STR with the television turned off.

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.

    I apologize - I misread your complaint.

    Connect your Computer/Ipod to the MD/TAPE input. This is an independent circuit that when selected, will not interfere with your video ins-and-outs.

I have a set of T 912 wireless headphones. I am unable to set them up on the TV. I am using the white and red cables from the base station to the TV audio red and white. Do you have any instructions on...


The audio jacks on the TV are most likely inputs, not outputs. They're meant to take the audio signal from something like a DVD player, along with the video input on another jack, so you can play it through the TV. There isn't an audio signal coming out from those jacks, and if you connect your headphone transmitter to them all you'll get is silence. Almost all sets now have at least one set of AV inputs, but most don't give you outputs. The manufacturers figure the TV is just a display device, and not a signal source.

Unfortunately, there isn't any easy way to connect your wireless headphones if the TV doesn't have audio output jacks or a headphone connector. If you're comfortable with soldering and willing to do some modification to your TV, it's possible to add a headphone jack. Most people don't want to start tinkering with their sets, though.

If you're using your TV on a cable system without a converter box and the cable hooks right to the set, you're out of luck unless you're willing to add a headphone jack as I mentioned before. But if you have a cable converter box, or you're using a satellite receiver or other set-top box, you can use your headphones with those. These devices typically have direct audio and video outputs available on the rear panel, and you can use that audio output to feed the headphone transmitter.

What most people do these days is use a home theater receiver along with the TV. All sources (the cable box, DVD player, video game console, audio CD player, etc.) connect to the receiver, and the receiver's audio and video outputs go to the corresponding input jacks on the TV. This way, the TV is just the end of the line. The receiver also would provide an output for the wireless headphone transmitter. This system offers some advantages. You'll be able to connect the proper speakers to enjoy surround sound when not using headphones. And you'll be able to use your wireless headphones with the tuner and audio sources like music CDs when not watching TV.

II HAVE A 13 INCH BRAND MODEL DWT 1304. I JUST WANT TO USE IT FOR A DVD PLAYER. I HAVE NO REMOTE ,HOW DO I CHANGE THE TV TO PLAY DVD OR VEDIO


Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

I cant figure out how to listen to the radio while i play video games through hdmi cables


In order for you to be able to have a different audio source from your video, i.e.; have "radio sound" instead of "video game sound", you have to connect your HDMI cables from the game console directly to the TV/Monitor.

The reason for this is that video and audio are carried simultaneously over a single connection on HDMI. If you make your HDMI connections through a receiver to a monitor, whenever you change your input to the radio you also lose your video game picture.

So to summarize;

Power off your receiver and game console.

Disconnect your game console HDMI cable from the receiver.

Reconnect the HDMI cable to the TV.

Turn on the TV, then the receiver, then your game console. Then change your receiver input to the radio.

What would work better for Marantz SR 4200 Apple Composite or component cable? In order to play music through the amp as well as watching videos


Component Video is a big step up the food chain in quality. Component Video inputs are for video only, not for audio. I don't see Component Video inputs on the Marantz SR-4200; only Composite and S-Video. S-video would be a step up from Composite and it carries analog stereo sound.

You don't give any clues as to the source's audio capabilities.

Digital Audio of either flavor is preferable. Grab the best possible TV-related audio from your Cable/Satellite box to the Marantz and run a pair of RCA audio cables to your TV just in case you want to watch the weather channel without hi-fi sound.

Use of AV2 input sound socketsto play ipod


The sound is muted unless a video signal is detected on this TV. The only work around would be to connect the camcorder or some other active video to tha input but using the IPOD for the audio.

Putting music to a DVD


You will need to use the copied film as a video source, and the music you want, in digital form, as an audio source. You will then need audio-video editing software to alter the playback speeds of one or both and mix them together.

That's going to take time, learning how to use the software. It will not be quick, or easy, but you will probably be able to find some freeware for the purpose. Free software usually has poor or no documentation, which will make learning harder..

You will need to decide what sort of output format you want, which will mostly depend on where & how you want to watch it in future. This isn't an irrevocable decision: you could save the output as, say, XVid/MP3, and convert it to video CD or any other form later. That's a separate issue..

Just remember that you are choosing to spend effort instead of money. You could always hire this done instead.

This tv is supposed to have closed captioning i cant get it on? it worked before i tried to set it up on set up but it doesnt highlight


To use Picture in picture you must have 2 different video sources hooked up and active.  One could be a built in tuner (if it has one), a vcr, a dvd player, possible a computer, a video camera, or some other sevice.  There might be an exeption out there I have not seen, but normaly you have to have at least one other device sending a signal, two if you do not have an internal tuner.  Your TV will switch between these two sourses for it's small and large picture in picture images.
an example with an internal tuner.
picture one is the live baseball game you've tuned in on channel 45 (example only) and the other is the DVD of "Titanic" your wife is insisting on watching during the play-offs.... 
an example without a built in tuner would be to have the cable box or tivo playing your baseball game on one input, your computer on the other (or a DVD of titanic, or what ever)

Hope this helps

Want to listen to music while still watching football game


Some receivers with video switching have the option to stay on the video source when you switch to a different audio source, others don't. I have a Yamaha that will do this while my Kenwood will not because the CD and DVD input are one in the same. I guess it depends on what input you are using for your music input. If it's a DVD input it makes sense that when you switch the audio the video follows. Try connecting your audio source to an audio only input (say the CD input) and see if that will allow you to do what you want.

Game video input enabling


Dear krismedia

You should first confirm that Audio/Video output cable from the hifi is connected to the TV , then you should connect the game console to the input section in ur hifi system. And finally see if the TV is in AV mode and also see if the HIFI is detecting in the input mode.
