The Onkyo TX8011 is a Stereo Receiver. Two ways to connect:
1) The HD Cable box should have an audio out (typically red and white). Connect this to the Obnkyo CD input (red and white). The volume may be controlled with the Cable box remote or Onkyo remote. The TV volume may be muted or ON.

2) Connect LCD TV's audio out to Onkyo TX8011's CD input.
This is not a great way to set up, as the TV volume, when moved high, will attenuate (over load) the amplifier, leading to a jarring sound on the speakers. To avoid this, the TV volume should be ALWAYS FIXED low.. say about 30%. Only the Onkyo's volume should be adjusted while watching.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: receiver won't put out sound to LCD Sharp aquos

I have the same problem with my Sharp Lcd and Onkyo 804. I believe one problem is that the TV can not accept dolby digital or dts digital audio signals through HDMI. It will play sound if it receives a PCM signal through HDMI. You can try switching the type of signal on the cable box settings and on the dvd player. I switched to PCM and got sound through the TV and the receiver. The problem is that PCM is usually only a 2 channel signal and Dolby 5.1 will sound better through the surround sound theater system. I have not found an absolute solution to this yet, but I am willing to not get sound through the lousy TV speakers in order to get top notch sound through the Onkyo.

What I think I did and how I fixed it!

FACTORY RESET ON EVERYTHING!



All you have to do is to do a factory reset on everything, but I thing mostly on your 605, but I would do it on the TV as well. I think what had happened is after I set everything up for the first time, it worked great. As the days when on I started to play with all of the futures the 605 and the TV had to offer. I was turning them on and off to see what everything did. What I think I did was, I turned on something in the 605 that the TV did not know how to cope with. If I had to guess, I think it is the Lip-sink feature (Spelling?) in the 605.

Anyway disconnect everything, look in your manuals of the TV and the 605 to see how to do the factory reset on both. Then turn your TV on. After it does it’s start up for the first time (again), start connecting the 605.

It has been working great for me after I did this. Do not count on help from the people you bought it from or the people who made it. This stuff is so new they do not really know how to fix it.

SOURCE: HDMI only for video and sound through regular audio input

DVI does NOT support sound unlike HDMI. Hopefully your PC has a Co-axial S/PDIF digital output. If not you might want to spend the $50 and buy a nice one from Creative. Modern motherboards are even coming with HDMI built-in but that's NOT your situation. I use a 15" DVI to HDMI cable but you are probably using an adapter and the a regular HDMI cable. Get co-axial digital audio cable of the right length and connect it to the co-axial inputs (they're in the upper corner). Use the remote's set-up button and select the "Digital Input" option. This is very powerful. You can assign any of the Optical or Co-axial inputs to any associated device.

I have my PC as Video 3 with sound coming in via HDMI which I assign under the "HDMI Video" menu and sound under the "Digital Input" as "Coax1". I use "Coax2" for the DVD player that lacks an optical output. If you use regular analog you are screwed as you found out. I usually use the headphone jack and an extension cable with the Computer and watch on it's monitor.

All HDTV sets are **** compared to a decent computer monitor. The deliver MUCH clearer video and much higher resolutions that shitty the 1080 HDTV maxes out at. ATSC is **** compared to a PC. Grated, cable is junk compared to ATSC at 1080i but that's another story. Yet, comparing ATSC to a computer is like comparing NTSC or digital cables' crappy 480i with ATSC at 1080i. It that much greater. At least 720p is wide screened unlike 480i garbage that's most of Comcast's "HD" digital junk.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR606 getting no sound from HDMI sources

Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.

How can I set up with my lcd Sony tv


If your home theater receiver has a digital optical input, run a digital optical cable from digital optical OUTPUT on TV to digital optical INPUT on receiver. If receiver is older and only has analog inputs, you can get an 1/8 inch to RCA cable(red/white), and plug 1/8 inch side to an output on back of TV and plug RCA side to aux input(or CD or cassette input) on back of receiver. DO NOT PLUG INTO PHONO INPUT! Either one of those cables can be found at Walmart, radio shack, or best buy, etc. Digital Optical cable is definitely the best choice, but I just used the 1/8 to RCA setup to hook up a Sony led to my brother's early 90's Pioneer receiver(not the ideal setup, but will work). Hope this helps.

I have purchase an onkyo HT-RC230 receiver. I want to connect a Directv R16-500 DVR & RCA L32W22 TV. Directv satelite service is currently connected to the DVR and DVR is connected composit S ports of ...


This is a rather uncomplicated satellite receiver, and basically only has a left/right audio out.
You can hook these into any of the stereo type inputs on the HT-RC230.
This receiver is also the "wal-mart" brand of Onkyo (not their best stuff) - so I suggest you take the L/R audio out on the DVR and put it into ANY available (cd/tape/dvd) stereo input on the receiver.
You aren't going to get better sound out of any specific input.

How to connect a record player to Pioneer


If there are no specific phono inputs, then a phono pre-amp must be purchased. These usually cost around $20. This pre-amp will boost the signal level to that of a CD player or tape deck so that either a tape input or aux input can be used. Once you have the pre-amp, just connect its output to an open input on the receiver.

I have 1 center channel pre-out on back of my kenwood receiver. how do i hook it to the inputs on onkyo m-282 amp and then to center channel speaker?


Unfortunately can't connect it that way. The pre out is only meant to go directly into an amplifier that has all of the same inputs (front/rear, center and surround), not a standard receiver. (Pre amp to amp only, not pre amp to receiver) If your Onkyo doesn't have all the same inputs as your Kenwood preamp has outputs you will just use your standard left/right outputs from the Kenwood to your Onkyo input (CD, Tape, Phono,DVD etc) then use the outputs (front/rear, center and surround) from your Onkyo receiver and connect directly to your speakers..

I have an Onkyo TX-SR501 and have purchaed the Audio Y-Cable but can't seem to figure out how to play my Ipod through the receive. I cannot find an AUX connection. Help.


Aux is just a generic label for any unassigned high-level (non-Phono) input. They're all electrically the same as the 'labeled' inputs.

Use any of the following instead (whatever is available and convenient): CD; Tape 1 In; Video 2; Video 1 In - then selct the appropriate function to hear the program.

There is no tv slot on the Onkyo


You simply take and audio sample from the Tv to the Onkyo. You could use tape or CD input on the Onkyo it really doesn't matter. Just make sure you have audio out from the Tv and set the Onkyo menu to look at the input you select. If you choose to put it into the CD, make sure you select CD to listen to it. Assuming of course you have the speakers hooked up to listen to the Onkyo.

New receiver....old CD, record and tape players


Most new recievers don't have a "phono" input. If your record player is an older kind without a built in preamp, you will need to purchase a Phono pre-amp (about $25) and then you can use any input you wish.
