Question about B&K AVR-507 Receiver

1 Answer

Audio problem with B&K AVR507

My receiver no longer senses the optical audio inputs. When I switch to any of them I get nothing. I hooked up the analog set (white and red) and it now works but you have to switch inputs a couple of times before it does....and no Dolby Digital any longer when available. It use to make a switching sound when you went from one input to another but it doesn't any longer. I have an extensive electronics background and could replace components if I knew what to replace. Any help would be appreciated....the unit is only a couple of years old and heat is not an issue.

    I have the exact same problem with my AVR 307. Just talked to B&K and they are familiar with the problem. Send it to them and they will make the fix for no charge. Inconvenient but at least you'll get the Dolby Digital sound. I'm sending mine off today.

    I did a hard reset...meaning I unplugged the unit and reset it. It has worked fine ever since.

    My B&K AVR507 creates no sound "link" - it has a "Please Wait" sign with no start up. I have tried using the direct remote, rather than my universal remote, with no luck. It interlinks with my Pioneer Plasma monitor. There is no problem with the Pioneer screen, just no sound.

How do I hook up a tv to a Sony D311 receiver


The Sony STR-D311 only has analog audio inputs. If your TV has an analog audio output, use the appropriate RCA cable (2 M/M plugs on each end, usually red and white). If your TV has a headphone jack, use a 3.5 mm to RCA adapter. However, if your TV only has digital audio outputs, you will need a digital to analog audio converter, like this: https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Optical-Analog-audio-converter/dp/B004C4WPXA . You will also need the appropriate analog audio and digital audio cables.

The manual for the receiver is on the product support page: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-find.pl?mdl=STRD311 . The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//STRD311.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Connect tv to surround sound system


Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)

If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.

How can I set up with my lcd Sony tv


If your home theater receiver has a digital optical input, run a digital optical cable from digital optical OUTPUT on TV to digital optical INPUT on receiver. If receiver is older and only has analog inputs, you can get an 1/8 inch to RCA cable(red/white), and plug 1/8 inch side to an output on back of TV and plug RCA side to aux input(or CD or cassette input) on back of receiver. DO NOT PLUG INTO PHONO INPUT! Either one of those cables can be found at Walmart, radio shack, or best buy, etc. Digital Optical cable is definitely the best choice, but I just used the 1/8 to RCA setup to hook up a Sony led to my brother's early 90's Pioneer receiver(not the ideal setup, but will work). Hope this helps.

Hi, when I plug my TV's optical out into the Nakamichi AV8's optical input, and switch to "DVD/Optical" (after hitting "Digital Input" buttno) ... no sound comes out. I have...


Maybe assign it?

If the digital TV-related audio actually originates elsewhere (Cable Box?) you could skip the TV and use the Cable Box as the audio source. Nothing is gained by flinging an audio or video signal around the room to be handled (but not improved) by any device. I have no video entering my receiver and nothing but bare bones analog audio going to my TV in case I want to just watch the news or something else lo-fi.

I have this 2-Disc CD Recorder but I don't have the manual on how to hook it up to my recevier. I'm not sure if I'm to hook it up to the Analog or to the Coaxial Digital. I did try to hook it...


Hi,
No problem,You need to connect "CD" to" Receiver" in a regular way just to play ..
(output of CD-TO- input of Receiver) ..use either "RCA analog (red/white ) " or "optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )...optic is the best way to connect it..Remember your CD's "OUT" goes into" IN "
pls also remember,wherever you connect your CD on your Receiver,you should switch the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the back...
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Trying to hook up tv to JVC RX-315 and not sure what to hook up where


Hi,here is my simple solution...
If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox ) ,it's sound will come thru your stereo..

Hope this helps!
Take care and please

Is the digital optical socket at the back of mySony MHC ZX30AV a digital in or a digital out or both way?


It should be the input since the receiver is acting as the audio amplifier. It wouldn't make sense for this type of unit to output optical audio.

I would like to hook up my amp to my pc or laptop what extensions do i use and what setting do i put it on to receive sound? It's a JVC RX-884V


If you computer has only analog audio outputs, you could use one of the audio components input , turntable, cassette or CD player input, for this you'll need a cable called " Y ", it's called this way because its shape, in one end you have two white and red RCA plugs which are connected to amplifier, in the other end you have a 3.5mm stereo plug that connects to your computer audio output, preferable the line audio output. If you have digital audio outputs from your computer, you can use the coaxial or optical inputs, the first requires a digital coaxial cable RCA plug both ends and the second an optical fiber Toslink cable.

Hooking up optical input output


What kind ot TV?

Not sure what you mean by all signals.

Think about this: if your TV had any AUDIO capabilities that were superior to your REAL audio components, why would you need them?

The TV is the end of the line. Wouldn't it make more sense to get your TV-related audio as close to the source as possible? Your BD, DVD, cable and satellite all have high end audio outputs just begging for a place in the Pioneer.
