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.

How do I connect a Sony DVD DVP-SR210P to a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4240 HDC and a Sylvania TV C320SLX?


I am not sure you can connect your DVD player to your cable box. You should be able to connect both your cable box and DVD player to your TV set with two HDMI cables. This link is a pdf_usecares file of the TV manual that shows how to hook up your dad and cable box.

I recently bought a Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S370. The issue I have is that it will not play any DVD's on my Samsung HD TV The message "Mode not supported keeps coming up" Thanks


When you see "Mode Not Supported," hold down the "stop" button on the Bluray player for about 15 seconds and release it. This should reset the player to the lowest resolution over HDMI.

Check other Bluray player settings such as deep color, resolution etc. for conflicts.

Yes, you can connect the HDMI Cable from the Blu-ray Player to the TV directly and then, connect the Digital Optical cable from the Blu-ray Player to the Receiver.

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.

Recording from DVR.


There is a firmware update posted on the Sony support web site. It takes care of the copy protect error. However, i have encountered an error where the recorder doesn't identify the input signal. It posts the message "waiting for input signal." I have no solution for this one yet.
