Question about Sony BRAVIA® DAV-HDX576WF Theater System with Wireless Speakers

S-Sir Sub Unit won't pair

Just bought the Sony Bravia DAV-HDX576WF system. The wireless S-AIR Receiver will not pair with main unit. Have even set the receiver directly in front of unit. Because it won't pair, you have to manually change the receiver to tv or dvd, or etc... and manually adjust volume for rear surround speakers. Ugh... Please help and be gentle. Helpful hints for dummies would help. Thanks Much.

    Every time I try to pair the main unit and the s air unit, it says pairing failed. So annoying. Just put the speaker outlets in the back of the main unit and let me worry about getting speakers in the right place. I have no idea what to do next, but will try calling sony directly in the morning.

I almost went out and bought a Sony HDMI cable but I tried something first and it worked me. I wrapped tightly the transceiver on the back of the main unit with aluminum foil and what do you know it fixed the problem. I guess since I was using a cheap HDMI cable the foil helped to shield out the interference. Sony HDMI cable $70.00 or aluminum foil 5 cents.  Let me know if this works for you as well.

In order to properly pair the units, verify that the channel switch on the back of the sub units are set to either A, B, or C. Then go into the setup menu and go to setup tab. You can then scroll down to system setup. Verify that the base unit is set to the same channel as your sub units A, B, or C. You then can choose the pairing operation. Have your sub units close to the base and on for this operation. They must be linked to have the pairing operation work. The pairing option will ask if you are ready to pair a sub unit. Select OK. You will then be instructed to begin pairing. Find the pairing button on the back of the sub unit and depress. Depending on the sub unit you may see a red light flash or the front display will say pairing. Once complete the menu screen on the TV will tell you that the pairing is complete and ask if you would like to do another unit. Continue if you have another unit or select OK to complete the process. Once you return to the system setup menu the channel indicator A, B or C will have the work pairing next to it (i.e A (pairing)). If you continue to have trouble you can change the RF channel on the system setup menu from AUTO to ON. Good Luck. CEB

Try removing the HDMI cable and pair the speakers. I read another review that stated the HDMI cable is beside the transmitter on the rear of the main unit and causing interference. When I removed the HDMI cable and replaced with Component Video, my unit paired immediately and the rear speakers worked. I am going to purchase a higher-end HDMI cable and hope it solves the problem. The reason I purchased this unit was to watch bluray in 1080p which requires the HDMI cable. Hope this helps.

Need replacement speaker cables for dav-hdx576wf


Since noone else gave you a good answer I will. I lost some cables to mine a while ago and found this awesome jerry rig solution; Go to radio shack, and ask for '14-16 gauge star ring terminal connectors' Should come in a pack of 10 and be about 2$. On the back of the unit where these connectors fit, there should be two prongs. You will need two star-rings for each connector slot. Wire up your connectors and crimp the ends LIGHTLY with a pair of pliers. The star-ring connector connected to the negative wire should be inserted to the left prong, (left if you are facing the back of the unit), and the right prong is the positive. If you did everything correctly, you should be able to make your own wires for sony stereo systems whenever you need to. Saved my ***, hope it did the same for you. Here is a link to what they look like. http://www.shopping.com/radio-shack-non-insulated-crimp-on-star-ring-terminals-10-pack/info

The S-Air receiver for this unit DAV-HDX576WF cuts out when i bring it upstairs. Ive read that it should go alot farther. Please Help!


Most of the distance mentioned in ads and manuals are direct line of sight. As the number of walls between the transmitter and receiver increase the range keeps dropping drastically. Its not the distance but the obstacles that come in between that matter.

Rear S-Air speakers cutting in and out


I read on another review that the HDMI cable is causing this problem because it is beside the S-Air transmitter on the main unit. I could not get my rear speakers to pair or work, and sure enough, when I removed the HDMI cable and hooked up the unit via Component Video to my Sony 52" XBR TV, the speakers paired and worked. When I plugged the HDMI cable in they did not work. I am going to try to purchase a higher-end, more expensive HDMI cable and see if that helps. The whole point of HDMI is for true blue ray 1080p pictures. Hope this helps.

No sound from TV thru sony bravia hdx576wf; DVD & CD audio ok.


Could be a sync calibration issue. Try to divert the TV sound to another input source on the Hometheatre system if possible, if it is a go then maybe the TV audio needs to be recalibrated. Make sure TV audio setup menu option has not changed also.
