Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

I have video but no sound from the TV

I have a Quasar TV built in April 2002. I have a Dish DVR connected to Input 2 through an S-Video cable and the red and white audio RCA connections - the yellow video RCA connection is not connected.

Input 1 has my Sony DVD connected to the TV through heavy duty Red, Green and Blue cables.

So, I didn't have any way to connect my Yellow, Red and White RCA cable connectors from the Wii to the TV.

I bought a "splitter box" from Radio Shack with S-Video, Red, White and Yellow RCA outputs and four inputs with the same four inputs.

I connected the S-Video output from the box to the Input #2 using a new cable and the red, white and yellow outputs to Input #2 using a new red, white, yellow cable combo from Radio Shack.

I connected the RCA and S-video cables from my DVR to one of the inputs and the RCA cables from the Wii to one of the other inputs.

I get sound and picture when I push the switch for the DVR on the splitter box, but only get picture when I push the switch for the Wii.

What am I doing incorrectly?

I tried connecting the RCA jacks from the Wii to another input slot and still only get the picture but no sound from the TV. I get sounds from the Wii remotes when playing certain games, but not the music and crowd noise when playing Tennis, etc. (My son has a Wii, so I know what to expect while playing games on the Wii.)

    I put a disc in my Wii, and got a static shock. Next thing I know, my sound is completely gone. The video works fine, but no sound.

  • john345 Feb 06, 2009

    I have not tried connecting the Wii directly to the TV because of the nest of wires behind the TV and the other electronic gear.

    I'll try connecting it directly and I'll let you know. It may be the Wii itself.



    Thanks

    Yes, it is still under warranty and if it continues to not work, I'll return it.



    Thanks!

  • john345 Feb 07, 2009

    I'll call them and send it back!



    Thanks!

I hit the SAT button by mistake and now the TV picture won't come back on- it says to hit input button but that doesn't work


Hi there, my name is Kimberly and I form part od the Social Media Department with DISH. If you are at TV1, where the receiver box is located, the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cable that is running between the receiver and the tv, the tv may need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2 (Our remote will not always work to change the input on your tv. We recommend that you use the original remote that came with the TV at the time of purchse or the Input/Source button on the TV itself). If you are at the TV2 location, where there is no receiver, then the tv needs to be on channel 60 or 73.
If you are using an HDMI cable, then the TV will need to be on an HDMI input
If you are using Component cables, your TV will need to be on a component input. (Usually Comp 1 or 2)
If you are using RCA cables, then the TV will need to be on a VIDEO input (Usually Video 1 or 2)
If you are using COAX cables, then the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 (If you are at TV2, then the TV needs to be on channel 60 or 73)
If you have additional questions or need any type of assistance with your DISH service, feel free to reach me at: kimberly.escobar@dish.com

Dvr 625 from dish


To whom it may concern,
As a technician whom has been in the field for nearly a decade, my suggestion is to contact Dish Network customer service and set up a technician visit.. I know that there are far too many variables that could influence my answer and how I structure it, likely leading to more issues.

Best of wishes,
Dish Guy

How to record to vcr player/recorde from dish 625 dvr


Hi, Mari!

You can definitely use a VCR with your DISH 625 receiver. To set this up you would need to connect your VCR between your receiver and the TV.

The easiest way would be to run RCA cables from the TV Out to the VCR's TV input. From there, all you would have to do is run cables from the VCR's Out to the TV. Make sure the VCR and receiver are powered on and change to the input on the TV based on where the cables are plugged in on the TV.

If you have any questions let me know!

You are correct. I feel your pain. This will not work.

HDMI is a pure digital signal and the providers require the content coming over the Dish DVR to be COPY PROTECTED. So it will not work unless the HDMI cable goes directly from the DVR to the TV. This is to stop people from being able to make their own recordings of Dish shows, or making copies of your DVR recordings. If you really want to run things through your reciver, you're going to have to use the "component" or "composite" video feeds, not the HDMI. Sorry.

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

No dish network sound through denon 1609 receiver


check the setting for the HDMI connection at the Denon you may have to assign the HDMI audio setting also on the front of the Denon while in the DVR mode press the input mode button on the front of the Denon to select auto and if that doesn;t give you sound you will have to connect a cable from the DVR optical.coaxial or analog audio output to the Denon and setup for that type of audio connection

WinTV-HVR-1600 Tuner card to DishNetwork receiver


Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.

This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.

If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV


Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.
