Humming sound on cable setting

I have a PS3, 360 and cable box all connected to my receiver. Everything seems to be set up correctly, but when I put it on tv I get a really annoying hum/buzz sound. If I turn down my cable box's volume I get nothing out of the speakers. I have the component in, not HDMI for the cable box running to the receiver. Any ideas?

Have you tried to input another audio source into the audio inputs on the reciever that the cable box outputs are going into on the reciever ?
you may also need to ground the recievers frame and cable box frame to earth ground.
you also may have a bad connection in the wires or jacks for the audio connections
or the cable box audio out circuit needs repair

I'm having problem with sound when I use my Pioneer Elite VSX-32 receiver. Everything is fine if I directly connect to my TV with HDMI cables from my cable box or my roku box. However, if I use the same...


check the audio output settings of your components. THey may be set for dolby digital which your receiver can process but your TV can not. Try PCM stereo setting or "other".

Buzzing noise comming from speakers when i have my cable audio out pluged into a receiver


I have the same problem. What I was told is to check to make sure that all your connections are not loosely plugged into the outlets. Or buy a surge protector which might help some.

Television say check signal cable . I have a scientific atlanta cable box.What do I do?


How is the TV connected to the cable box (HDMI, component video, etc.)? Make sure that the cables are securely connected and that the TV is on the correct input. Try swapping the current cables for new ones. (The HDMI cable has come loose on my entertainment system at times.) If you route HDMI cables via a sound receiver (cable box -> receiver -> TV), try a direct connection to the TV.

For my TV, I have to turn on one set-top box before I turn on the TV to get the signals to correctly synchronize. (Try turning off everything connected to the TV and then turn on the accessories first. Then turn on the TV.) For another set-top box, it needs to be turned on before the TV. (So try both options.)

Make sure that your set-top box is on and try a different TV or input if possible. If a second TV doesn't work with the box, contact the provider and check for a service outage. (Also try a different set-top box (like a blu-ray player) to check if it is the input on the TV.)

Note: I've had mice or other things damage wiring; this takes out the cable and phone lines. If this is outside damage, your service provider should repair the damage for free.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your TV and the connections that you are using for additional support.

Rear speakers on vsx1122 not playing, they tested okay


Manually change your surround settings for your satellite box input. Your box may not be putting out a signal that the receiver auto-detects as a surround sound signal, thus it just plays in stereo.

Where to reconnect speaker wires from cable box to receiver


Right.  I can't tell you for sure, because I don't know if you have powered speakers (page 22) or not (page 15); or 2 sets of speakers (15 & 16).

I did manage to find you a downloadable manual, so you should be able to work out what kit you've got and consequently what bits to plug in where:

Starting on page 15 is probably your best bet.  Good luck!

Sony PCM 48 Issue


As long as you continue to have both HDMI and optical outputs connected at same time from the cable box, it will probably always choose the default as HDMI. If you do not want to change any connections then the best thing to do in this case is to always leave the cable box turned on. Otherwise, disconnect the HDMI and connect it to the TV by component video.

Connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589


Hello,
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.

Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output

I have a Vizio 42' and a cable box and there's a constant humming


I think I had the same problem. This is how I fixed it.

I have my vizio 42 hooked up to a Harmon Kardon surround sound, and the digital cable box. Essentially, I can adjust the volume 3 ways - through the tv, cable box or av receiver. The humming sound happens when you have the volume maxed out on the av receiver and not the cable box.

For example, the sound level on my Harmon Kardon goes from -10 (lowest) to 10 (loudest), with 0 being the middle ground. The buzzing was happening when the Harmon Kardon was set to 10, and I was using the cable box volume to adjust the sound. To fix it, I turned down the volume on my receiver to 0, which may be about 50% max volume of the receiver. Then, I switched devices and used the volume on my cable box. This got rid of the static I was getting. Hope that helps.

Setting up Cable with HDMI


Yes, the firmware on your hdtv box has an old firmware, I switched my old hdtv box with a newer one box and the problem was solved. It seems that it can't work if your hooking up with DVI to HDMI cable to your receiver to tv. Your hd box must have an HDMI out otherwise it causes problems. I also have rx-v661 and i finally hooked up everything HDMI to the receiver and then to the tv and it was having the problem you speak of. After I switched out the hd box for a newer one everthing worked fine.
