Question about Onkyo HT-S5100 Theater System
We have our sound system hooked up through the cable reciever. We are using the white and red out with the coaxial hookup (orange) to the satellite/cable reciever in on the Onkio unit (white and red) and hooked the coaxial cable through the coaxial 2 input on the Onkio unit. I have set the reciever to cable/satellite input and made sure to set our input to coaxial two on the front of the unit. The sound is very weak and all the speakers are hooked up correctly. Once we hit 50 on the volume level the system shuts down. I assume it's a short but I can't figure out where.
Having read the problem report two or three times, it appears that you're running ~three~ cables from your cable receiver to the home theater system - orange, and red&white.
Often, when you can hear a low-level signal on an input, it's due to 'leakage' from another input, and it's my hunch that the cable receiver is sending audio through the red and white (analogue) connections, which you've plugged to the main sat/cable receiver inputs.
To confirm this, I'd be interested to know if, when you unplug the red and white connectors from the back of the Onkyo, the quiet signal completely disappears.
If that's the case, I would suggest either going into the cable receiver's cofiguration to see if 'digital audio out' is set (if such is possible) or switching the input to 'cable/satellite'...
Hope this brings you closer to the root of the problem!
