Go to settings on PS3 and sound settings and set them to HDMI.

If the above did not work, try a auto reset, with unit connected. Hold the PS3 power button down and wait until you hear 2 beeps. The PS3 will automatically search your input/output channels.

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

I have an older onkyo 1994 or 1995 receiver dolby pro logic with the amplifier and 6 disk changer wnd the system is clear as could be in cd mode. my problem is Ihave my xbox hooked up to the tv with hdmi...


No no no!
# 1. You need to connect all your components to your TV via an HDMI cable. For true HD and digital sound this is needed. Your TV (if its an HD TV) should have 3 or 4 HDMI inputs. So your Xbox/PS3 should be connected via HDMI cable. Your HD sat or cable box should also be connected with an HDMI cable. Same for your Blu Ray player.

#2. Now that your components are connect in a way which will enable you to see their media in either 720p, 1080i or 1080p your ready to get the Digital sound to your speakers. On the back of your TV you should (again on most all HD tv's) have a digital audio (optical) out. You need to purchase a digital (optical) audio cable and plug one end into your tv's digital audio out jack. Then plug the other end into your audio receivers digital audio in jack. You may have to go into your receivers menu to select or enable the digital/optical input. Then you should be rocking and rolling with true digital DTS, Pro Logic, Pro Logic 2 in either 5.1 or 7.1...

Think of your TV as the hub. Connect all the components with HDMI cables. And then your TV to your receiver with a digital/optical cable. It's that simple.

Never never use the red and white cables for audio. They were designed for 2 channel stereo sound. They won't deliver 5.1 or 7.1 digital sound.

Also... Don't ever hook up any component using the old "yellow" video cable if you want picture quality better than 480i resolution. They won't do HD period.

Here is a list of the popular video cables and they highest resolution.

Yellow video cables - 480i resolution

S video (super video) cable - 480p

Component video cables (red/blue/green) - up to 720p

HIgh definition multimedia interface HDMI - up to 1080p (full HD) and digital sound.

Hope this helps...

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Ps3 doesnt give out a surround sound output


Hi
In this configration you will not get surround sound. Because tv is not able to reproduse the surround sound through its out put from the HDMI input. You have to connect the HDMI of PS3 to the Onkyo receiver and the HDMI Monitor Out of the Onkyo to the TV. This can only done if the Onkyo AVR Have HDMI IN/OUT option.

If not the connect the Optical out of PS3 to any one of the optical input of the Onkyo receiver.
After that you have to goto the setup Menu the Onkyo and assing the optical input in wich you have conncted the PS3.

Aslo the following setting in PS3

Menu>>> Settings >>> Sound Settings >>> Audio Output Settings >>> Select the connector..= DIGITAL OUTPUT (OPTICAL)

How do i hookup my magnavox mrd 210 to my lcd tv for surround sound. have tried to connect with rca wires in back of tv to surround sound system and nothing. tried side of tv and nothing. my surround sound...


Have you seen the user guide?

http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000036122.pdf

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

I bought a Sharp Aquos HDTV. Am trying to use a digital co-ax cable to run tv thru my reciever. I get no sound. there is only 1 place on each device to hook up this cable. Any suggestions?


I dont wish to assume that when you say receiver, you mean sattelite or cable. Since you may be trying to hook this up to a surround sound reciever...

Let me also clarify, if this is the case, the receiver needs to be turned on AND the selection signal device set to TV or AUX wherever it is you've connected the TV.

Now by receiver, if you actually meant cable or sat box, then the Ext antena from that service connects to that units ANT IN.

Then from there on that unit ANT OUT to your TV SIGNAL IN.

If you want the external surround sound and have the connectors for this. Then you need to send them OUT to the Stereo/Surround receiver TV IN.

Now having said that and assuming that your TV does not have the Red and White Audio RCA connectors... Your Sat or Cable box does... You connect those to the surround sound Receiver Audio IN

Hopefully you'll find this useful.

If this has not answered the situation. Please feel free to come back and provide all components your working with. Surround reciever, Sat, cable, DVD, VCR whatever etc. etc... I'd be more than glad to help you through this


Good Luck

Why cant I supply my onkyo surround sound system


You need to assign the HDMI input(s) to the functions they represent, using the Front Panel Tuning/Preset control...

If you connect a video component to an HDMI input, you must assign that HDMI Input to an input selector in Setup.
For example, you could assign the “DVD” setting to “IN1”, and assign the
“CBL/SAT” setting to “IN2”.

Likewise if you use digital audio inputs...

Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, press the [DIGITAL INPUT] button repeatedly until sound is heard. The digital input is now properly assigned.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1 DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver
to the COAXIAL 2 DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary
to assign the digital input.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

Connecting ps3 to cinema system


There is no substitute for HDMI. However, the 'digital in' cable connection that you want to use is still digital and will sound almost exactly the same. The differences are barely noticeable to the human ear. Here is a list for you to see the pecking order of each type of connection.

Audio connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (digital)
2. Fiber optic (digital)
3. Coax - Digital (digital) <--- The one you want to use.
4. Component (analog)
5. RCA/AV (analog)

Video connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (full HD digital)
2. Component (Blue, green, red, white, red - HD analog)
3. S-Video
4. RCA/AV (Yellow, white, red)

Good luck!!

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV


Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.
