Have to turn the volume near max on my Onkyo receiver to hear TV

When I play the dvd player plays through the receiver the volume is loud at about 30 but when I watch the TV that is also connected through the receiver I have to turn the volume up to 70. What the heck is going on?

It sounds like a source level adjustment refer to your users manual and see if there is a way to turn the SLA up and if not then a small amp can be bought or purchased to boost the sound from the tv. check out the Fiio E5 for examples it might just do the trick

Movies will play fine however the music is at normal volume and the voices are very quiet. To hear them you can turn it up but then music is too loud.


This might be your TV many of the SONY and PHILIPS TV's have an Auto Volume control setting that is used to prevent the TV advert music from being too loud compared to the programs try turning this ON and OFF and see if it helps.

Have to turn the volume to 80-100 to hear the tv in my bedroom


If it's just playing DVD's that the volume is low some DVD players have their own volume control.
You could look at the back of your tv and see if the dvd or psp is hooked up to a "line in" or a 'variable' input. The Line in is a constant audio source. The variable will be also affected by the volume on the TV.

When I plug my Onkyo receiver in it turns on and off on its own in intrevals of about one second. Is this a bad power supply or something else?


follow these steps:
*disconnect everything from the unit (treat it as if you just got it out of the box) no speaker wires no cables.
* turn on the unit and max the volume (w/o anything connected)
*if the unit shuts off during step 2 you need to send it in for service (go to onkyousa.com for the nearest service center)
*if it didn't shut off during step 2 you need to play the tuner and connect one speaker at a time.
EXAMPLE: connect your left speaker and then play the FM and then max the volume for about 2 seconds then turn it down.
if you were successful in maxing out the volume on the left speaker continue with the other speakers until you isolate w/c speaker is causing the issue. if your gonna ask why the FM...its because its a direct playing source but you can still use a cd player or a tape deck to try it out.

take note: if your receiver shuts down on a speaker that you have connected make sure to have that speaker checked or better yet replace it.

Volume Problem with my TV and Home Theater system


I had the same problem with mine.The solution I found was to use an optical audio cable rather than the red and white RCA audio jacks. Hope this helped.

Center speaker


I had the exact same problem. In order to "almost" balance the center with the other channels I had to give the center +12db gain and the other channels -12db. So after I got that far with level calibration I tried some tv sound, well the center although was playing sounded like the highs were missing and a bit distorted. This is the good part, I turned the volume all the way up real fast, somewhere near max something fixed itself, the center became very loud. Now it works just like new. Hope this helps. BTW, the problem existed the same for sub channel, so when the center started working so did the sub.

No HDMI Output


My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

Problem:
ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

Symptom:
I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

Solution:
1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.

Maybe the owners manual would help. It says you can adjust the sensitivity of the AUX input through a menu. It sounds like the AUX sensitivity is just set to max. Look for the 'to change other settings' chapter, instructions are in there.
If you don't have the manual, find it on the official website.
