Speaker volume low when set to TV

I've checked my connections and cables and all are in working order.  When the receiver is set to TV/SAT I have to "crank" the volume to max just to hear it.  I've played CDs DVDs and both respond as it should (I don't have to turn the volume above 10).  Any help, suggestions are greatly appreciated,  Thanks...

Re: Speaker volume low when set to TV

Have you muliple scart leads connected? is everything wired through the tv? is everything wired together? you need 1 scart lead from the tv with enough scart sockets on it to take all your extras.connect your amp through a scart lead aswell.3 things will have to be turned on at all times e.g. tv,sat,amp.Don't connect any 2 extras together e.g. vcr to sat  one will kill the sound from the other

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.

Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.

So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?

I bought a Denon AVR 791 receiver two months ago, work great, sound great with my Definitive Technology Speakers but 3 days ago while I was watching a movie on my PS3 the receiver turned off on the higher...

Clearly, it thinks you're overdriving it.

Blinking Power Indicator every 2 seconds means the internal temperature is high. (Page 76 of the manual)

Every half-second - speaker impedance too low.

Consider the load presented by the speakers and what their minimum impedance might be.

Check for loose speaker wires.

Yamaha RX-V365 unable to receive 5.1 audio from TV with HDMI

If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.

Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....

I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.

I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.

Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?

This note is on Page 11 of the manual:

Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor

"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.

Back ground music louder than voices watching movies on cable

Is this a new problem or always like this? <<<<<<<<

What is your speaker complement? The center usually carries the dialog.

Are the receiver and its speaker systems set up per the manual? Make it so.

How is the TV-related (Cable) audio entering your receiver? It SHOULD be from the cable box, digitally if available, NOT the TV. You don't need a Low-Fi middleman handling your audio.

Can't get sound from TV alone. Am using an optical audio cord. It is hooked up through a digital cable box. Even before this we couldn't get sound from TV alone.

I assume that you mean your TV speakers are not operating OR you do not get audio from TV channel sources.
If you want your TV speakers to work, make sure that the TV speaker is enabled in the TV setup menu.
If your TV is connected to the receiver to get audio from it through external speakers powered by the receiver, then make sure you have a connection from the TV labeled as "variable audio out" into the receiver on a panel labeled as something to the like of "TV/SAT IN" or "TV/SAT AUDIO IN." Then, turn the volume all the way up on the TV, then operate it with the master volume on the receiver.

Low to no volume output from Integra DTR-5.2 receiver

most higher end integra's have a input level adjusment or input selection for each and every input. Perhaps you are not on the correct input, go to onscreen programming and check out the input level and input select - also try the tape in another input like tape 2 or cd. It will not hurt the receiver for a test. Also, if you are using the cheap cables from the manufacturer - try a pair of cables that you know work or go by some. BTW, you don't need to spend $40 for cables order them online through amazon or other store. Gold / sliver plated oxygen free are best.

Center speaker

I had the exact same problem. In order to "almost" balance the center with the other channels I had to give the center +12db gain and the other channels -12db. So after I got that far with level calibration I tried some tv sound, well the center although was playing sounded like the highs were missing and a bit distorted. This is the good part, I turned the volume all the way up real fast, somewhere near max something fixed itself, the center became very loud. Now it works just like new. Hope this helps. BTW, the problem existed the same for sub channel, so when the center started working so did the sub.
