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".

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!

Humming sound when watching tv,but not when watching dvd's


It wounds like you are getting interference from you tv to the receiver. You can try a few different things here.

1. Connect the tv output into another input on you receiver to see if it isnt the channel on the receiver.

2. Try a different set of cables between the tv and receiver. Faulty cables can give you problems.

3. Connect the cable from you tv to a different device. (another dvd vcr blue ray etc.) This will tell you if its the receivers or the tv.

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

No sound is coming through my Onkyo receiver from the cable box


The Playstation 3 automatically broadcasts video and audio through HDMI even when an optical audio cable is ran to the receiver. If your TV has an optical audio out, it's just best to run everything into the TV including audio, and then run the optical cable from the TV to the reciever. It's less confusing and less buttons/remotes you have to use when you want to change devices, i.e. Cable/PS3/DVD

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.

Surround sound


Hi

Your receiver is capable of video conversion, so there should be no problem using your component cable.

Does your TV accept component, or only S-Video? If you can run component to your TV, the best quality signal path would be using a component cable from your Verizon box to your receiver, and component from your receiver to your TV.

Make sure you have set up the video input correctly, so that it is set to accept the incoming signal on the correct sockets.
