Actually, if you want to hear audio to the TV speakers as well, you just need to go to Setup, Hardware Setup, HDMI and then turn HDMI Audio Out to on. hope this helps.. ^_^

The three inputs will all carry picture and sound. You then will definitely picture out to the TV but sometimes, depending on the manufacturer, no audio because it is assumed the the AV receiver will handle all of the audio duties therefore no need for audio at the TV.

To listen your TV on your

** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your
dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI ..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your
dvd player.

Trying to hook a dvd player up how do i do that


There are three ways subject to what your DVD player and receiver can support.
1. Connect the stereo output of the player using a pair of analogue interconnects. The outputs are usually color coded red and white (for left and right). Simply plug in the interconnect and connect the other ends to a matching pair of inputs on the Receiver. Then make sure you select the correct input on the Receiver for the sound to come through.
2. The second method is to take advantage of surround sound audio (Dolby 5.1 for example) on the DVD. You will of course need a surround sound speaker system connected to your Receiver to take advantage of this. You'll need 'either' an Optical or Coaxial cable. These are both single cables that carry the digital audio form the player to the Receiver. Check your manual to see which ones your equipment has. Alternatively look on the back of the DVD player, the digital output is usually marked quite clearly. Obtain a suitable cable, and plug into the DVD player and the other end into the Receiver. Again make sure select the correct input on the Receiver. You 'may' need to go in to the menu settings of the DVD player in order to tell it to output the digital signal.
3. HDMI - If you DVD player, Receiver AND TV all have HDMI connections then this is by far the easiest. You'll need 2 HDMI cables. The first one goes from the DVD player into the Receiver, the second goes from the Receiver to the TV. Again make sure you select the correct HDMI input on the Receiver and the correct HDMI input on the TV and that should get you going!
Hope this helps?

I have my television, cable box, and apple tv running into the tuner with HDMI cables with the tuner hooked up to surround speakers for the sound. I'm having trouble separating the audio and video. I would...


The only way you can do this is by connecting the Cable Set Top box HDMI directly to the TV HDMI input and switching the TXSR508 to Apple TV. And if you want to hear the Cable sound through the TXSR, connect analogue audio out of the TV to one of the analogue inputs of the TXSR ( Aux or Video In ). You may not get the Cable TV's Dolby 5.1 sound but you will get stereo sound which on using the TXSR's dsp setting ( ProLogic II ) can be made into 5.1.

I cannot get any sound to the speakers, hooked up receiver to new HD tv and not what input source or settings to use??


Hi, it's a general process to connect any receiver to a HD TV.

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Things You'll Need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.

Instructions


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).


Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.


Tips & Warnings


Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

Hope it helps.

Good luck..

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

I have my PS3 and TV hooked up to the HDMI ports. I have programmed the unit to show them under TV and DVD respectivly. When I change the source to TV or DVD, nothing shows up on my TV as expected


Sounds like you hooked them both up to HDMI input ports. Make sure that the PS3 is connected to an HDMI input port on the AVR-1508, and that the TV is connected to an HDMI output port (not an input).

No audio sound from HDMI connection from TV to Onkyo 606 amp.


you have the output of the receiver going to the input of the TV?

i believe that you should be running the TV output to the receiver input to get your sound from the TV to the receiver and thus speakers.

the easiest setup is to just run your cable box and DVD player HDMI's into your TV inputs. then run another HDMI from the TV output to the receiver input.

Having trouble connecting my blue ray and tv to my yamaha receive and surround system


Must be an HDMI ?

If yes use the HDMI DVD input on your receiver ( from the Blue Ray using a HDMI cable )
Then use an HDMI cable from receiver to TV.

That should work for image. Sound would only work directly from TV, to have sound on receiver:

Use either optical or coax cable to direct digital sound from blueray to receiver.
Best is optic, depends on blueray or cable availability ... Coax = RCA cables @ 75 Ohms, use of a spare RGB would work find (using only one of three color available let's say using Red only) or try with any RCA cable.

direct cable from blueray to receiver ( Digital inputs at far left looking back of receiver num 7 in owner manual, choose DVD )

If no sound from receiver check Audio select from option menu ( set to auto )

Any specific question about this procedure ?

or guess you already found out,

Enjoy :-)

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.
