Onkyo Receiver HT-R340 No audio on Video 1

Hi, I recently changed my A/V setup on my home theater. As part of that, I had to change my digital set top cable box from the digital input on the my receiver to a regular stereo (red & white cables) input so I could free up the digital audio for my xbox 360. When I changed the input I use for the cable box, which is video 1, from digital input to standard, I get no sound. Everything is plugged in correctly so not sure whats going on. I've had this kind of problem once or twice, but it usually resolved after cycling through the listening modes, but that isn't working this time. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind of late for a post to this question, but here goes. Most likely you need to change the xbox sound out settings to be digital

SOURCE: Onkyo HT-S5100 Theater System

It's possible that you have the wrong speaker set (A or B). Look for that button and change the setting and see if that works

Hello, I recently bought an Onkyo HT-S9300 home theater system. I am trying to get it to work with my DVD player using optical cable for the sound, since the DVD player does not have HDMI output, but I...

In your DVD player audio setup change the digital output to bitstream. You have not mentioned which DVD player you are using.

Some players it will be given
Digital Out - Off/ On select On
Dolby Digital - Dolby / PCM select Dolby
DTS - On/Off select ON

Sound from Onkyo CD player well and fine. Then connected the Samsung DVD HT-Z310 to Video3 (L/R audio in, V-in from L/R Audio out and V-out of Samsung) but no sound or nor video on TV? Tried to fix it...

What am I missing here?

There are a lot of models mentioned in this post. What are WE discussing?

* A Samsung HT-Z310 is a Home Theater System.

* An Onkyo TX-DS777 is higher-end AV Receiver that DOES have a Video 3 input which accepts composite video and analog audio.

* An Onkyo CD player is irrelevant to the TV sound in any scenario.

* Unnamed TV.

I don't see any path in your narrative that would carry audio TO the TV. Is there an unmentioned HDMI cable in here somewhere? I see no other audio outputs on the HTZ.

Are you running the HT-Z310 through an Onkyo receiver to somewhere (?) else?

The fewer hops and inteconnects a given signal experiences between its source and your senses, the better. I always run the BEST video from any source to the TV first; the best Audio to the BEST audio electronics. If that helps.

I have an Onkyo HT-S6100 home theater not sending picture to TV.

I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16. Here's how to fix it.

Does onkyo HT-s3100 supports 4 Ohms speakers from JBL(control 1)

Palaboy is incorrect. JBL Control 1 speakers are 4 Ohm 150 watt speakers. He's probably thinking of the Control 1x speakers which are 8 ohm 80 watt speakers.

If you hook your Control 1s to that Onkyo, it won't sound great and could cause the receiver to overheat and trip the protection circuit if played at high volume.

Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo

It looks like the audio output was changed on the player so that it doesn't output 5.1. Enter the setup menu on the player and change DTS to output DTS instead of what be labled as stereo or L/R and Dolby Digital to output Dolby Digital instead of whatever else it is set to.

No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1

if you are using an HDMI cable dont expect sound to come out (even thought HDMI carries both audio and video) the onkyo HT-s5100's Receiver is the HT-r560. the 500 models of the onkyo receiver does not allow HDMI to carry both audio and video. it only allows the video signal to pass to the receiver.

if youre using optical for audio w/c is what you need then these are the steps you need to follow.
*first make sure that the optical connections are ok at the back of the receiver.
*make sure that your DIGITAL INPUT is set to either OPT1 or OPT2 whichever optical input you used to connect the optical cable.
*then go to your PS# settings : go to sound settings / audio moutput settings/ select digital out (optical).

then enjoy.....ü

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv

Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.
