Re: pioneer vsx d512
All you have to do is connect the coaxial out from pc to any audio i/p at the back of vsx d512.but ensure you select the right channel to play the audio ( eg. tape i/p select tape at front control, aux i/p select the aux at front control )

This indicates the audio output stage in the receiver is loading down and triggering the overload protection circuit to kick in. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a professional to assess the cost for repair.
There are NO optical (Toslink) or coaxial connections for Satellite or Cable-TV on this Pioneer unit.
The coaxial connector on the receiver is for connection to an external antenna for FM Tuner (radio) reception only.
Your cable line from the wall would go to your Cable Box, or a "cable-ready" TV or VCR. You would then connect the composite (YLR) or S-video output A/V (S+LR) connection to the VCR 1 input on the back of the receiver. Connect your TV L/R audio and S-video or Composite video output to the TV in connection on the Receiver. (Connect the Composite TV-out connection to a composite video-in connection on the TV.)
The best way to do this (if you haven't done this already) is to enable the Dynamic Range Control. This neat little setting makes the difference between loud and soft to be not so much, making soft sounds (like talking in your case) louder and something like explosions not so loud. This is also called Midnight Mode on some receivers. To enable this setting, grab your remote and turn the receiver on. Press the "Receiver" button, then hit the left arrow on the remote until you see something along the lines of "Dynamic range control" pop up on the LCD (should be the 8th setting). You probably want to set this to "Max", but you can also select "Mid" if you find that Max does too much.
If this still does not work, you can bump up the relative volume of the center channel a bit (or a lot of bit). Hit the "Standard" button on your remote, then "Test Tone" until "C" or "Center" comes up on the LCD. Then hit the "Level +" button a few times, making the center channel a little louder. Listen to it a while and adjust it to your liking.
The combination of these two settings should get you where you want to be. By the way, do a search on your favorite search engine for something like "manual Pioneer VSX-D512" and you should be able to download a manual from somewhere (it looks like Pioneer no longer hosts the manual on their site). Hope this helps!
If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly
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.
By coaxial, do you mean the composite (yellow)?
Either way you have to use the same style no matter what the cable. I mean, if you have s-video's IN to the reciever then you need S-videos OUT to the TV. ....Component IN to the reciever? then Component OUT to the TV. And so on. You cant have composite cords going into the reciever and use a component cord out to the TV (with the exception of a few models).
