2 zone setup

I would like to watch and listen to tv on zone 1 while listening to the tuner on zone 2. Right now when I switch to zone 2 the TV picture stays on, but the front speakers and the outdoor speakers play the tuner. I would like only th eoutdoor speakers to play the tuner and the front speakers to retain the tv sound.

Re: 2 zone setup

Consult the user manual. If you don't have one, it can be downloaded free at Denon's website. Two of the speaker oututs serve multiple functions. Hookup and setup need to be checked. What you want to do is possible as long as you're only using a 5.1 setup indoors.

How to hook up the TV

To use the TV as a Monitor: Use an HDMI cable from the Monitor Out on the 6006 to an HDMI Input on the TV. You need to go into the setup menu and set the HDMI sound to go to the amp and not the TV.

If you are tuning TV stations with an antenna and the TV tuner: First connect the TV as above so you can watch your other sources, like Blu-ray players. Then add an Optical Digital Audio cable from the output on the TV to an optical input on the TV. When watching antenna TV, select the input on the 6006 that the optical cable is connected to. You may have to play with settings in the TV and the 6006 to get this to work! You should be able to listen to 5.1 sound while watching tv over the antenna.

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.

Hi, I am having trouble hooking up my new LG home theatre system with my Rogers cable. I connected the home theatre system to the TV with an HDMI cable. The sound works with watching DVDs on TV and...

To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.

Auto MCACC Screen Appearing

It would appear the unit thinks your McAAC microphone is inserted. Is it?

Automatically setting up for surround

sound (Auto MCACC)

The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account

ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you have set

up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones

to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.

Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a source on page 11.


• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.

• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.

• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the headphones should be disconnected and the iPod

USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio function should not be selected as an input source.

1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.

2 Connect the microphone to the MCACC SETUP MIC

jack on the front panel.

Place the microphone so that it's about ear level at your normal listening position (use a tripod if possible). Make

sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.

The Auto MCACC display appears once the microphone is connected.1


1 • You can't use the System Setup menu in either the main or sub zone when the iPod USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio input source is selected. When you set ZONE 2 to ON (page 61), you can't use the System Setup menu.
• If you cancel the Auto MCACC Setup, or leave an error message


It's all in the manual.

Denon 1910 Zone 2 no sound

Typically, Zone 2 is for a different program than the one you're hearing in the main listening room. You can choose any source for Zone 2 EXCEPT a digital one.

ok sounds simple you ran the lines threw the tv instead all lines should be ran threw the sterio

see once you turn tv off this cuts the outputs out so now no sound will happen
your sterio should be equipted to take inputs of tv
you want everything to be inputed threw receiver thats why they call it a receiver the outputs on tv goto inputs on receiver
you need to redo your wireing so that this which i described is correct again

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

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?)

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.

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.
