Re: default volume too high

You can download the manual from the link below: c. Power On Volume This sets a designated volume setting for the TX-DS787 to be set every time that the power is turned on. This prevents the TXDS787 from being turned on while it is set to an extremely high volume and suddenly output very loud sounds. For the absolute volume display method, this can be set between min and max. For the relative volume display method, this can be set between ?? and 18 decibels. If you do not mind having the TX-DS787 turned on with its current volume setting, set this to "Last." Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

The speakers do not produce high volume. I turn it up to 40 to hear at a decent level. I turn down to 10 and its like its at 0 (no volume at all).

What is 40? Full throttle? What equipment do you have besides the speakers?
Does the problem apply to both/all speakers?
It can be many reasons why the volume is low. First we need to know what drives the speakers, what the audio source is etc. In general the whole package of equipment, their settings, filters etc. in order to answer the question.

I have a AVR-591. I hooked everything up and all works great. The only thing I want to know is when I turn off the receiver I have no TV. How do I bypass the receiver so I can watch TV without the reciever...

You said the magic word - BYPASS.

Your TV source is probably a cable or sat box. They usually have multiple audio and video OUTputs and most TV's have multiple audio and video INputs.

Run the box's analog RCA Audio Out to the TV (assuming it has speakers). Set the box's internal volume setting (if it has one) to FIXED and modulate theTV volume with ITS control.


Lacking sufficient hi-def inputs on the TV, I'd elect for Component Video from the box and HDMI from your BD player, if you have one. Cable video is bit-rate compromised while BD source is NOT so BD should get the best connection.

I personally have NO high-end video going into my receiver and no high-end audio going to my TV. Why bother with hops?

I have a Panaconic TH-42PX60U TV.(4-5 yrs old) I find no audio out holes to plug into my old Kenwood KR-A5050 Receiver. I wanted to play TV thru speakers from receiver. I only have the red/white plugs...

I feel for you. However I have good news for you. I just looked at the owner's manual for your set and you CAN connect it to the Receiver. If you look at the back of the set. There are several arrays for connectors for inputs. At the far right hand side there is a VCR output for recording. Use the lower two connectors (RCA Type), and plug them into the Aux (or CD) stereo input on your Kenwood Receiver. Below I've put in the link to the manual for your TV. Look on page 10.
Use the receiver volume control and you are in business.

Now, the matter of your set being High Definition. It actually is. It is 720p progressive scan HD. This is the earlier standard. It also will display 1080i interlaced high definition. The Pre HD standard was about 350i. That originated in the late 1940s. Not anything to write home to mom about (of course she grew up on this). There is a perceptible difference between 720p and 1080p but it is NOT a dramatic improvement.
I WOULD NOT go out and purchase a new 1080p set just now. Because there are two new standards on the horizon. One is 1440p and the other is 2160p 1440p is four times the pixels as 720p. 2160p is 4 times the pixels of 1080p. The 2160p sets formally are 3840X2160p.
Samsung and just about every other Japanese manufacturer have been demonstrating and displaying "proof of concept" 84 inch sets.
I don't know about you, but I'm holding my breath. Let me know how this works.
Best Regards,

I cannot make any changes to my Zone 2 -- cannot change the volume or change the setting from what Zone 1 is on. A blinking symbol that looks like a mushroom appears when you are trying to switch between...


Looks like the the unit is locked to region 1.

The Yamaha receiver you listed is region free, therefore I assume you are talking about a different unit, in that case give model please.

If you have the problem with a Yamaha RX-V661, then simply disconnect power cord for ten minutes. And disconnect from power all devices connected to the receiver.
This should reset the system.

Let me know in case it does not work.

Volume on my Onkyo Receiver

Yes it is. I have the 705. My room mate has the 605. Both AVR's will not have appreciable volume until 50 on the dial.
The dial in not linear. I don't know of anyone who has plotted the scaling of the volume control yet.
I have found much useful user info on Owners post Q&A based on experiences.
Search the forum for "official onkyo TX-SR605" thread.
Some comparable info may also be found under the "official onkyo TX-SR705".

It's the receiver, same prob here. The level of bass through the sub is negligible too. So my guess is it's either related to the crossover or the passthrough in general.
Looking for a missetting or workaround.

Turning volume up on my Denon AVR-485 AMP causes it to turn off

Speaker Impedance:
When speaker systems A and B are used separately, speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 ohms can be connected for use as front speakers
Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time if their impedance is less than 12 ohms.
The protector circuit may be activated of the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes with an impedance lower than specified are connected.
