First are they two seperate units, ie. a TV and a DVD unit, if so you are connecting the dvd to the TV and the TV audio to the receiver, anyway the yellow connector is composite video, you can run this from your tv to the reciever video INPUTS, the RED and WHITE connectors are for AUDIO ONLY, hence WHITE LEFT CHANNEL and RED RIGHT CHANNEL, what to keep in mind is AUDIO OUT OF TV into AUDIO IN on the receiver, same on a DVD unit AUDIO OUT of the DVD unit into an AUDIO INPUT on the receiver, but take the DVD VIDEO OUT to the TV VIDEO INPUT, other routes are possible but just keep the in and out in mind when connecting.

Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

How to connect Sony dvd player to onkyo TX-8511 receiver


The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:

A lot of newer tv you'll have to change the input of the tv to receive the signal. Most should be labeled. If it's red and yellow connectors it will be a composite connection. Some tv companies require a signal to be present before they will switch or even show the different inputs

I am trying to install DVD player/recorder to my sony strdh510 reciever get the sound but no picture. I plug the dvd as per manural green/blue/red out to DVD in green/blue/red what am I doing wrong


It appears you are trying to connect via "component" video - green (Y), red (Pr), and blue (Pb). Make sure the settings on the Sony is set to component - NOT composite. You can try composite - the yellow to yellow jack (from the DVD to receiver or TV), to see if that works, but make sure your settings are for composite. The audio are red and white, right and left respectively and are used for both schemes above.

We recently purchased an AVR 146 receiver and have attempted to connect our DVR satellite receiver, a DVD player/recorder and our Hitachi (non HD) TV, plus a surround sound system to it. The surround sound...


Hello,

This is how the connection is suppose to be, DVR "OUT", to TV "IN" using the RCA plugs, then press AV on the TV. If this is how you connected it, then maybe there is something wrong with the video wire (Yellow).

As for the DVD, you need to connect an Audio wire separately because the component Red + Green + Blue wire only stands for video. Audio is Red and White, this must be connected for you to get sound from the DVD.

To connect the Audio for your DVD player, connect Red and White wire to Audio "OUT" of your DVD player, to "AUX" in of your AVR 146 receiver, then select AUX on your receiver and sound will come out from your DVD through the receiver.

I hope this is not complicated for you. This connection is simple, all you need is to understand the basics which is OUT and IN. If you want to watch DVD on your TV, this means the DVD will be good OUT to IN of the DVD. The same goes for audio.

If you don't understand, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

Good luck.

How to connect to an analog tv


Try to locate the composite video/audio in(1) and audio (2) out sockets of your tv.
(1): three small round sockets, one yellow, one white, one red (2): two small round sockets, red and white. (only if you want sound from your tv on your marantz receiver)
You will need a composite audio/video cable: 51433a4.jpg
and a composite audio cable: db5db51.jpg

Connect the composite video/audio cable (1):
the yellow lead to MULTI OUT (yellow) the white lead to MULTI OUT (white) the red lead to MULTI OUT (red)
on your tv: connect these cables to the respective yellow, red and white input. (there should be a text like: game in/dvd in/ext in/AV-1/VCR) If all you see at the back is a big socket like this one: 0f41fcb.jpg

you will need a SCART-to-composite adapter, like this:

(2) To get audio from your tv to your Marantz, locate an 'audio out' (red + white round connectors) on your tv, and connect these pins using cable (2) to TV (complete bottom left on your Marantz).

Connecting a PS2


the rxv463 will not upconvert any video signals. its what they call a pass thru video switch. chances are you are using a red, white. yellow (composite) connection. you will then need to pass this yellow thru the receiver to the yellow output of the receiver and into the yellow input on the tv. the same rule would apply to the component inputs and outputs as well as the hdmis

If you are using HDMI cables for HD then you will need to connect this from your dvd player to you tv. Then connect your dvd player to you amp using either fiberoptic cable or co-axil (orange) this will transfer your dolby digital signal. Then connect other stuff like video / freeview etc to the yellow red and white on amp, you may need a scart to phono cable. Then connect monitor out from you amp to the yellow on your tv .This way when you select the source on the amp the picture will change also. If you search the web for vr-505 manual there are some sites offering it.

No DVD Picture


When you say "Traditional Cables", are you referring to the red, white, and yellow cables?

Once you connected those from Cd/DVD to the receiver, did you then connect another yellow cable from the "monitor out" on the receiver, to an input on your television?

This is generally the step that people forget about.

The back of your receiver should have a "monitor" or "tv" output on it. You need to connect another yellow cable from *it* to an input on your TV, then turn your TV to that specific input.

That should do the trick.
