Question about Marantz SR-5600 Receiver

2 Answers

I have the following hardware: Marantz SR-4003 Receiver, Samsung LN52A650 HD TV, Samsung BDP-1500 Blu-Ray player, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD cable box, two Paradigm Millenia 20 LCR Bookshelf speakers. I have the cable box and blu-ray player hooked up through HDMI cables into the receiver, and then an HDMI cable out of the speaker into the TV. Now, here's the issue: when I have the TV OFF, I get sound through the speakers for the cable box & blu-ray. However, when I turn the TV on, there is no sound output through the speakers. Suggestions?

I had the same problem. The new Marantz RS-4003 receiver supports HDMI 1.3 for video, but is only 1.1 for audio. When you turn on the TV, a conflict develops between the 1.1 audio and the TV's 1.3.

There are two fixes I am aware of:

1) You can connect the HDMI directly from your Blu-Ray and Cable Box to the TV and send the audio separately to your receiver via Toslink or Digital Coax. However, this defeats the purpose of having a switching receiver, and requires you to change the input on your TV each time you switch between cable and Blu-Ray.

2) The better option is to run both HDMI and Toslink or Digital Coax from your Blu-Ray and Cable Box to the Receiver, and then HDMI to the T.V. This allows switching through the receiver. The downside is that you will not get audio to your TV speakers unless you run a separate set of audio cables from the receiver to the TV.

One other possible problem with the second set-up. I have seen instances when you run an HDMI video signal through the Marantz, and I hit INFO on a Samsung TV, it will tell you that the video signal from the Blu-Ray player is only 1080i and not 1080p. Since the HDMI signal is supposed to be a simple pass-through, I am not sure why this is. If it is somehow downgrading the signal, you may want to consider the first fix, above.

Remove the HDMI cable (out) to the speakers from the receiver.
Connect regular speaker wire from the receiver to the speakers.
Of course, remove the (now extra) HDMI cable from the tv.
That will remove the loop.

Pioneer vsx-5231 not pairing with Phillips bdp-2175 smart bluray player


have you tried to connect the Philips direct to the TV's hdmi?

Could be the resolution on the bluray is set to 1080p which may be out of range for the receiver or even the TV for that matter. If you can reset the output resolution of the bluray to 480p first, just to establish a picture then try 720P which all HD tv's and receivers can handle.

I did a quick search and could not find the resolution reset procedure for this unit. Other units will reset if you press and hold 2 or more buttons together.

Please unplug the Cable from the Blu-ray Player to the TV.
Then, press and hold the STOP button on the Blu-ray Player for more than 10 seconds.
Then, connect the cable from the Blu-ray Player to the TV and check whether it helps.

I would like to hook up my components without having to turn on the receiver to watch tv from DVR or Cable if possible. I have Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 HD Cable DVR w/HDMI out, Samsung TV w/HDMI ,...


You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

Audio glitch on Marantz SR-19


It's probably not heat due to the Marantz' large frame and heat-synchs.
This could simply be a mismatch of impedance. The amp is 120w per channel, so make sure the speakers can handle this. Check the impedance (ohms) of the speakers and the amp as well. Clipping can be caused by overpowering the speakers, which could damage the speakers in the long-run.
If this is only from 1 source- (i.e.- Blu-ray player or cable) then it could be digital clipping.. This Marantz can decode 96kHz PCM or normal Dolby Digital & DTS. If this is a Blu-ray it may be streaming 192kHz PCM... (but most likely the Marantz will not even attempt to play that audio)
I hope this helps.

No Audio when I play Blu-Ray discs with Dolby TrueHD


For dolby digital to work you have to have the optical or coax cable hooked up to the reciever ,The HDMI cable is for digital video and audio output but does not support dolby digital out the cable into your reciever , so just turn off the dolby digital on your reciever and you should hear the sound.
here is more info

Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless multi-channel audio codec developed by Dolby Laboratories which is intended primarily for high-definition home-entertainment equipment such as Blu-ray Disc. It is the successor to the AC-3 Dolby Digital surround sound codec which was used as the audio standard for DVD discs. In this application, Dolby TrueHD competes with DTS-HD Master Audio, another lossless codec from Digital Theater System.
Dolby TrueHD uses Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) as its mathematical basis for compressing audio samples. MLP was used on the earlier DVD-Audio format, but details of TrueHD and DVD-Audio differ substantially. A Dolby TrueHD bitstream can carry up to 14 discrete sound channels. Sample depths up to 24 bits/sample and audio sample rates up to 192 kHz are supported. Like the more common legacy codec Dolby Digital, TrueHD bitstreams carry program metadata. Metadata is separate from the coding format and compressed audio samples, but stores relevant information about the audio waveform. For example, dialog normalization and Dynamic range compression are controlled by metadata embedded in the TrueHD bitstream.
