Question about Pioneer VSX-406 Receiver

Need help connecting Receiver to TV, DVD, VCR players

We just moved. Hubby is too busy doing other things; I want my TV hooked up! In the manual for the receiver, it tells me to hook up the TV using the "VIDEO OUT" hole on the receiver and the "VIDEO IN" hole on the TV. That doesn't make sense to me since the receiver is to hook up my audio to my speakers. In the TV manual (Toshiba CF32F40), it says to use the "Audio OUT" on the TV and the "AUX INPUT" on the receiver. I don't see anything labelled "AUX INPUT" on the receiver - could I use the "PHONO IN" holes? If not, how do I hook this up?

    Me again. First of all, I appreciate your help. However, in the back of my receiver I do not see "video 1" inputs. What I have are three choices:
    1 - "Video Out" and "Video In" which are boxed with the "VCR/TAPE" option.
    2 - "Video IN" which is boxed with the "LD/DVD" option and
    3 - "To Monitor TV / Video Out" option which is boxed by itself and this is what the manual says to use (as described in OP).

    Can you clarify your answer? Thanks.

    Whoa, I'm getting more confused. I'll have to check but I do believe that my VCR is hooked up to the VCR inputs.

    Also, when I hook up the double-headed cable to the AUDIO input, one goes into "LEFT" and one into "RIGHT" so how does the other end of the cable all of a sudden turn into a "VIDEO" cable?

    I'll go see if this works.

Take the audio outputs on the TV set and connect up to the The video 1 inputs to the receiver, BUT use the audio part of the video 1 input and leave the yellow video input blank. Now turn on the TV set, put the TV set on a channel, turn on the receiver and select the video 1 input and you should have the TV audio coming from the receiver. Good Luck.

    Put the audio wires from the TV set to the VCR audio input, then put the receiver to the VCR input on the selector on the front.

There has got to be a way


I have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver. After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using this hookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv as usual...Now plug rca cables(red, yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directv receiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavox player...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that's ok) Now hook up up the dvd player to the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if your tv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available at walmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connections to the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)

Adding vcr & rec to a '93


Hello,
Please hook up VCR with TV through RF cable and check picture of VCR playback in TV.

Now you can hook DVD player video-audio out in VCR input and can have dvd playback picture in TV via VCR modulator.

If you want to listen sound via receiver then hook audio red-white cable between VCR audio out and receiver audio in terminals.

Let me know exact model numbers of units to help you out more.
Thank you.

I am trying to hook up my tv to my receiver, I have a dvd vcr combo,and cable box


Audio: There should be a set of audio outputs on your TV. Connect those to the AUX inputs of your receiver. When you turn on your receiver, set it to AUX. Set your TV volume to approx 1/3 and adjust the volume on your receiver. There's probably a menu section on the TV to turn off your TV speakers so the sound will only come from your receiver.

DVD/VCR (I'll call it DVD from this point forward): Connect the video (yellow) output from the DVD to the "video input" on the back of the TV. Connect the audio out on the DVD player (red) to the red audio input on the back of the TV, then do the same with the other audio (white). When you want to use your DVD player, you'll select "input 1" as the input on the TV.

Cable: Your cable box probably has numerous output types. I have the cable box hooked up to both the DVD player AND to the TV; one output type going to the DVD player and another output type going to the TV. I like to use the HDMI output from the cable box to the TV, and the composite video from the cable box to the DVD.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.
