I have connected the Component Video outputs from the DAV-SC5 to my TV, but where do I take the audio from in case I want to use the sound from the TV as well?

Re: Component Video Connection

What you have done is you are sending a component video signal from your system to your tv and the sound i assume comes through the 5.1 surrond speakers. The DVD's you play the sound would naturally come from the 5.1 surround speakers, unless your instruct the dvd player to send the sound to the tv in which case will only be played as stereo. you will need inputs on your dav system to take sound from your tv outputs or digital box by way of red and white phono leads or a digital/optical input if you have them; so as to play the sound from cable tv or sattelite tv through your 5.1 surround speakers.

Sony DAV-SC5 not playing 5.1 through the optical input from sky/blu ray


The DAV supports Dolby Digital® DTS 5.1 audio. Make sure your blueray movie has 5.1 track and is outputting to the DAV.

I am looking at connecting multiple components with DAV HDX275 Sony surround sound system. But it appears that there is only one red/white/yellow jack on the back of the unit. Any suggestions?

check one more time. your player DAV HD 275 have component video output. three sockets near the yellow, red, white sockets. Named Y, PB/CB, PR/CR.
remember on thing when you connect the component video, be sure to connect the red to red, green to green and blue to blue. if not you will not get the correct video. will become out of sync or black&white

I don't have a cable box and have hooked my Sony DAV-X1 system directly into the av input jacks on my tv. I can watch and listen to dvd's but the speakers won't work when watching tv.

What are you doing? Note the following:
The only cable you should connect to your TV from your X1 are the video cables
Logic is you want to use the system for sound and your TV for video only
  • If you have an LCD TV use the HDMI connection for video from your DVDs
  • If not the best video is using the component video (red green blue) i.e connect this to your X1 and your TV input
  • If your TV does not have this just use the video out composite (yellow). On the X1 it is indicated as Monitor
The reason why you do not have any audio from the TV is because you have not connected Audio Out from your TV to your X1. Do the following:
  • Identify if your TV has stereo audio out i.e A/V out should have red and white jacks
  • If this is the case connect this to your input on your X1 corresponding to TV
  • If your TV only has one Audio Out jack you need an RCU cable that has one to two pins and you would connect the single pin to your Audio out on the TV and the two (red/white) to your X1)
  • To listen to audio from TV simply set the input or source setting on your X1 to TV

Let know if this resolves your problem

Hi,I can play a DVD disc on the system and get sound from the surround sound speakers but I can't get a picture on the tv,Sony Trinitron.The connetions are from the DAV S500:(DVD only)red and white cable...

First try with yellow video output of DAV-S500 in yellow video TV input to get its picture. (yellow output means composite video out)
Green-Blue-Red video output is component output that will be turn on when you switch the unit into Progressive picture mode, that option would be available in Menu of DAV-S500
Hope this info will help you.

Stuck in progressive scan mode.

Based on your description, it seems that you set the DVD to progressive scan output, but have it hooked up to a TV (CRT) that cannot accept this signal. Because the TV can't accept the signal, you can't view the DVD menu to change the setting back to interlaced.

On the back panel you have "Component Video Out" for output via component cables, but there is also a yellow RCA connection labeled "Video Out". This is a "composite video" connection which does not support progressive scan. Try disconnecting the component cables and connect the composite video to a TV. The DVD will likely (hopefully) send a compatible signal (480i) through this connection, which will give you access to the menu.

DVDs play in black and white

Try use connect your dvd player with just RCA(composite video) and see if you get regular color picture.If so,you need to go to the system menu to check the video output and see if it is under R Pr Pb-component video setting?If not,be sure to change it to component video setting AND use component video cable to connect to your TV unless your TV don't have this connection.

Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1

It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.

How to connect other dvd or HDMI player into dav-sc5 for amblification

If your alternate DVD player has digital audio out you can make this connection via the 'optical digital in' port on the rear of the unit which corresponds to the Video 2 function. I have done this myself because the inbuilt DVD function in the Sony unit is dead (fixed once under warranty, problem recurred about a year later, same issue as other unsolved posts on this board, DVD function hangs, system won't switch off, etc. common problem with this unit, crap product).
