SOURCE: IR receiver on unit not working?

Sounds to me like the issue is the rx in the unit. It can be fixed with very little work if you can locate the part. Let me take a look and see if I can locate the part number for you. Although I have to say that Kenwwod can keep a tight lip on their parts lists.

SOURCE: Got a Kenwood vr405 surround receiver, a Sanyo

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

How can i connect my kenwood vr-505 to my t.v only


I assume you mean you want TV-related sound to play through the Kenwood.

It's in the manual.

I personally would recommend minimum TV involvement in sound and minimum receiver involvement in video, but that's just me.

You might want to ponder why you would need audio from a TV in the first place if it originates elsewhere like a Cable Box. The fewer hops and interconnects a given signal takes on the way from the source to your ears, the better (and cheaper, too, as optical or HDMI cable is expensive). You COULD skip the TV entirely. Many don't even HAVE audio (monitors, for example). The receiver only NEEDS a basic composite video output to the TV so you can use the TV for setup and control. You COULD run vanilla stereo audio to the TV from the Cable Box for watching Oprah.


I run all of my best DIGITAL audio directly from the sources to my VSX and the best DIGITAL video directly from the sources to the TV.

Hello I am trying to hook up a dvd player to my kenwood vr 505 that has been in storage for a while. How do you hook up a HD tv and dvd. Does it go out from the receiver to the tv, and does the dvd go...


If you are using HDMI cables for HD then you will need to connect this from your dvd player to you tv. Then connect your dvd player to you amp using either fiberoptic cable or co-axil (orange) this will transfer your dolby digital signal. Then connect other stuff like video / freeview etc to the yellow red and white on amp, you may need a scart to phono cable. Then connect monitor out from you amp to the yellow on your tv .This way when you select the source on the amp the picture will change also. If you search the web for vr-505 manual there are some sites offering it.

Wiring for VR-505


This is like buying a car without the power steering pump, which specially designed proprietary part. I am not familiar with that particular model, but if it requires special wires, then you may have problems obtaining them and may need to go to the Manufacturer. You would not have accepted a car that had no power steering pump, just because the salesman recommended it. Fortunately we are talking about a manufacturer with integrity and I am almost sure that you will get your cables, as long as you can prove ownership. Did you ever examine the sockets on the receiver, which could be simple RCA jacks. Do that before you go to the manufacturer. Then you can go to Radio Schack after you look in your junk pile to see what kinds of wires you have in that special wire box. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)
