    Thanks for the feedback. I had fabricated an RCA cable which apparently was defective. I bought a premade one from Best Buy and it works like a champ.

Check the fuse output line in the speaker! or maybe you are in protect mode! checkout the speaker, maybe you have defective speaker, thats why your unit in protect mode, thats why no sounds coming out!

I cannot get sound from my sony tv (ldl 40bx420) to play through my strdh520 blue ray sony bdp s580 sends a nice signal through it to the speakers.....I have tried every tip in the manual to try to...

Depends on your sources and connections. If you have Cable Box, DSS, FIOS, etc. Audio would be from Coaxial or Digital Optical from the respective source. You would need to check the Audio settings on the Cable Box, DSS, etc. If you are using Cable or off-air, direct from the TV, it would be connected from the analog audio (rca) or Digital Optical output from the TV and The Audio out setting on the TV should be set to Fixed. On the Sony Receiver, make sure all inputs in settings menu for audio are set to auto. Hope this helps, if you still have a problem, post a reply/comment with any other equipment you have connected between TV & Receiver

I cannot figure out how to connect the Yamaha natural sound av receiver rx-v463 to the TV. I cannot get sound out of the receiver. What cords do I need?

If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..

Input signals Marantz SR4003

There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

Can not receive video output

This amp is prone to blowing video boards if connection are made while power is still on . take video cable from component like dvd etc and plug directly to tv. If picture take same cable and connect to cable (monitor out to tv), in other words bypass the amp to see if cables are working.make sure earth is connecting to earth and centre to centre. if you get picture connect to amp. make sure power is off. Select dvd and make sure dvd is connected to dvd video input. if no picture connect on dss in put and switch to dss just to check if other video inputs is working. check also in menu that video setting is according to desired video input like video or component1 etc

Hi there I don'tseem to be getting any component video output. I am inputting virgin via optical input video 1, I get the sound and the box even displays virgin but no visual output?

Optical is for "audio only" you need to send Video from whatever source you are hooking up, ie. TV,DVD,DSS,etc. Use what the source has, if it's got Component Video out, use that, Don't use HDMI! still too many firmware issues! Make sure when you hook it up to the receiver that you hook it up to the same input as your audio, just on the video side. It will say DVD or DSS or CBL next to the green,blue,and red inputs. Hope this helps

Technics SA-DX930. I ran digital optical cable from the TV to the receiver using the tv/dss mode. It worked well for 4 months. It stopped working. I can get sound out of the receiver and speakers using...

If the only thing not working is the optical input, it is possible that the optical converter is defective. Without seeing the actual unit and testing the IC, I can't say for sure. If you have test equipment, let me know and we will attempt to track this down.

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?

There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.

Connecting blu ray to surround sound receiver to tv

Hi, I have just completed this installation myself.
You are correct, HDMI to Amp Input from Bluray and then HDMI from Amp output to TV. Coloured cables are not required to operate the bluray now.
Good luck

Onkyo Zone 2 problem

The zone 2 will only play analog sources - so  you must hook up the output from the tv/cable/dss on it's analog (RCA Jacks) into an input on the Onkyo.  You might also have to enable this output from you tv/cable/dss.
