You plug a subwoofer RCA cable into the Subwoofer Preout from the back of the VSX-D510 and to the input on the back of the subwoofer. If there is a red / white connection don't sweat it, just use the red. Should work fine.
Be sure youve selected the optical output option on your ps3 (in sound options on your XMB) ... now on the back on the amp under the optical input it says CD. Select CD input using the toggle know or your remote and then on the front of the amp press the button labeled"signal select"(in between DSP select
Each digital input is assigned a name and a function by you. You have to dig out the manual and assign the digital inputs.
My $.02. Why do you not want to use the coaxial imputs? There is no functional superiority of one over the other BUT coaxial is a) cheap, since it uses standard RCA cables; b) adaptable, since you can splice or split them among two devices; c) not delicate or prone to failure due to tight bends. I share one coaxial input between two digital device with an RCA splitter cable. Just have to make sure to turn the one I'm not using OFF. Try that with optical.
Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.
I had the same problem and resolved it last night. You'll also need to connect an audio cable (EVENTHOUGH YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO - to bad pioneer didn't fully implement the HDMI standard in this receiver) solution. I suggest using an Optical cable. This really annoyed me...see the manual on P.17 section #3.
I recommend you use an optical connection. Your VSX-D510 has only one optical input, but I believe it is assignable. Use a good optical cable and connect directly to your DVR. Follow the manual to assign the input and it should work.
1-Get an Xbox 360 HD cable (see the picture1 below)
2-Connect the red and white plugs to one of your amplifier's empty inputs.
3-Connect the VGA plug to the LCD directly
By following these instructions you'll be able to get surround sound from your amplifier as long as you keep it turned on.
2nd solution could be that; (if you have some other equipments connected to the amplifier such as dvd, cd, etc.)
1-Get the above-mentioned HD Cable and get a VGA to S-Video adapter (a small piece of equipment)
2-Do the same thing as mentioned in the 2nd above
3-This time, you're gonna select a VIDEO INPUT (video1, video2,etc.) on your amplifier's input selector. Affix the VGA plug of your HD cable to the S-Video adapter, and connect it to an empty S-Video input slot at the back side of the amp.
4-Get a simple RCA cable or a digital coax cable (up to you) to make a connection between the "monitor out" slot of the amp. and the "video in" slot of the LCD.
It's important that which video input you've selected in your amp. to make this connection. For instance, if you choose "VIDEO 1", you will have to connect all plugs (Audio and Video) via VIDEO 1 slots.
