2 potential issues, first make sure the dvd player audio menu setup is set correct for 5.1 outputs, not DTS or Dolby Digital bitstream, can be difficult but read the user manual under sound options if possible, second be sure the receiver is set to act as the "amplifier only setting " i.e. DVD 6 channel input, maybe EXT IN , not sure what pioneers mode is, but all you need to follow is the dvd player is outputing 6 channel signal paths, and the receiver is acting as six amps, unless of couse you are using a subwoofer line out.

You can record either the channel 3 or channel 4 output channel from the DirecTV box or connect the analog audio and video outputs to the recorder's inputs and use the In1 or In2 inputs.

RF Modulators and cable connections

RF MODULATOR HOOKUP
For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.

The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.

I have 2 good qaulity heybrook speakers and have tried everything to connect them properly such that both play sound when the tv / dvd is on. Both speakers work perfectly one at a time and both work...


You're guessing. That is exactly the wrong thing to do. Get the manual.

"[D]vd 6 channel input" is for a 6-channel analog input as the name implies. I doubt you even have a source that HAS 6 analog channel outputs.

Speakers are OUTPUTS of the amplifers' speaker posts. Any one can work ANYwhere.

And that bi-wire capability, IF the speakers have it - pretend it isn't there.

I have an AKAI SS-3800 home theatre system which connects to my DVD player by 6 cables to get 5.1 surround sound. Can it be connected to a bluray player to get 5.1 surround sound


Most DVD (and Blu-Ray) players have digital 5.1 audio outputs and some (like yours) also have analog outputs for electronics that lack a digital audio input (*).

I can't get a description (or picture) of the inputs beyond its having two, one 5.1 and one stereo. No mention of digital. Even at the lame akai site.

http://www.akai.com/product_detail.asp?id=3&id2=20&id3=58

* Like the Akai SS-3800 ??

So if the BD has 5.1 analog outs, yes, it will connect the same way as the DVD. Otherwise, you're limited to stereo analog audio (yuk).

Plug a device that actually has a 6 channel analog output into the DVD/DVD 6Ch inputs. Configure THAT device to put out 6-channel analog.Select ANALOG 6CH on the remote (page 16).

CANT GET MY TV TO WORK WITH DVD PLAYER


Connecting a DVD player to your stereo receiver (or television, if you don't have a receiver) involves making two basic connections: audio and video.
Audio
The first connection to make is for the audio portion of the signal. There will be several options depending on the receiver you have.
  • The best choice (if available) is either to use an optical (also called Tos-link) or coaxial (RCA) digital connection. These two choices are equal in quality. In order to use either of these, you will need to have both an output on the DVD player, and an input on the receiver. Only receivers with built-in Dolby Digital decoders will have this type of input.

  • If your receiver does not have a built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder, but is "Dolby Digital ready," look for the 5.1-channel Dolby or 5.1-channel DTS. This connection involves six cables, corresponding to different speaker channels: left front, center front, right front, left rear, right rear and subwoofer.

  • The last option to connect the two components is with analog RCA outputs. This is a two-cable connection, with one cable delivering the left speaker sound, and the other cable delivering the right. This connection will deliver only stereo sound, but it may be your only option if you are hooking up directly to a television, or if you have an old receiver with only two channels.
Now let's take a look at the video connection.
  • The best quality choice is to use component connection. This connection consists of three cables: color-labeled red, blue and green. The quality is superb. However, these connections only exist on extremely high-end receivers and television sets.

  • The next option is s-video. One cable connects the DVD player to the receiver in this setup.

  • The last option, similar to the audio setup, is to use the analog RCA video output, usually color-labeled yellow on both ends. This will deliver the lowest quality, but will suffice for most older, analog televisions.

Amplifier problem


Here's the basic problem. The DVD player can get a 5.1 audio source from the DVD. That signal is then converted from Digital to Analog and split into 6 channels of information. Each channel has an audio out on the back of your player. You are only using the Front L and Front R outputs. Based on how I read your description, they seem to be sent from your DVD to your TV, and then from your TV to your receiver. The problem is that you are only listening to two of the six channel, so you are losing a lot of information. How this sounds to you depends, in part, on how the sound is mixed on the DVD (5.1 versus just stereo, for example).

Because you don't have 5.1 system to take all six outputs (analog "DVD Audio" connections), you shouldn't be using those outputs. You could use the digital out (optical or coax SP/DIF) to send all channels to a receiver that could do the splitting (D/A), but it sounds like you don't have the equipment for that.

You didn't provide the model for the LG DVD, but there should be connections for analog stereo. They would be labeled as Audio Out L / R, or something similar. The connections are stereo, but your player would use all 5.1 channels to play through those stereo channels. You could connect those directly to your receiver, or you can continue trying to have the TV as a step in between (not suggested unless you just like to watch DVDs without turning on the receiver).

Video issues w/ Pioneer VSX-816 AV Receiver


Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.

I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.

Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.
