Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver

Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

How do I use the auxiliary input option on my Pioneer DEH-P59000IB? It has no auxiliary input to plug in a wire.

After looking up your unit's info, I found that it does indeed have an aux input, but it's on the rear of the unit. Get yourself a 3.5mm aux cable (normal aux cable), pull the unit from the dash (being careful not to disconnect any wires), plug one end into the aux jack and feed the other end thru the area where the unit sits in the dash and out one side or the other of the center area of the dash (by the footwells). Put the head unit back in place and GENTLY pull the aux cable enough to get out the last bit of slack, but not so hard that you pull it out of the back of the head unit. You can tuck the extra slack up under the console where it meets the carpet. If you wanted to get real fancy, you could drill a slot in the storage area of the console large enough for the cable to fit but small enough that the end won't slip through so you can keep it all out of sight and just plug your phone or MP3 player in and hide it in the console. Then just switch the source on the unit to aux and enjoy!

How can I hook up an auxiliary wire to play my IPhone on the JVC KD-AR5000

After looking up your unit's info, I found that the aux input is on the rear of the unit. Pull the unit from the dash, being careful not to disconnect any wires (sometimes the antenna adapter wire is too short and must be disconnected to work behind the unit. Just don't forget to reconnect it before putting the unit back in place). Plug one end of a 3.5mm aux cable into the aux input on the rear of the unit and feed the other end thru the hole where the unit sits in the dash and out the side of the center of the dash to either the driver or passenger footwell. Replace the head unit and GENTLY pull the rest of the slack out of the aux cable but not so hard that you disconnect it from the head unit. You can tuck any excess aux cable up under the side of the console where the plastic meets the carpet, & if you wanted to get really fancy, you could drill a slot in the storage area of the console big enough to fit the cable, but small enough so the end doesn't fall through so you could plug your phone in and hide it all in the console out of sight. Then just switch the source on the unit to aux and enjoy!

I would like to plug in the sound of my television set to the panasonic SC-PM08. I tryed to do that by plugging in the tulip plugs in the "aux" connections, but no sound comes out. what could be the...

You mention "tulip plugs"! are you referring to your RCA jacks in the back of your unit? That is what the 7 inputs are to the right of your speaker connections.
When you hook your "stereo TV" to your external sound unit
you need to run your cables to your aux input from your audio out jacks on the back of the TV. Once this is done you need to configure your TV and your sound unit to work with each other. You need to go into your TV settings and tell it where to send the audio to. If you hooked into the front audio output then you need to pick that selection. If you hooked into the back audio out you need to pick that selection. Once you have completed that you need to tell your sound unit where to pick the sound up at. If you plugged into the aux then put your sound unit on aux. If you have more than 1 aux pay attention to what aux your TV is coming in on and set your sound unit accordingly.

Hooking sat to car stereo

that plug at the back is not for sat radio. It is for use with steering wheel controls. You have the blue plug at rear of stereo and that is the plug for sat radio. Ericson electronics is contracted to build the sat compatible units that wire into this radio through the blue. plug. if you are using 3.5 plug audio control from a portable sat receiver, the you will need to buy an aux input cable for your stereo..

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume

first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

Aux Jack

first off you need to make sure that the factiry head unit has a aux drive or if the aftermarket has one as well if it does just set head unit to aux plug it in and play music if it doesnt you will need a new head unit that has aux input. if your car has one it could be on the radio face or the back could be very difficult to pull the radio refer to your manual on how to do that
