Re: surround sound

The unit has only 2 channels of output thus, cannot provide surround format. Depending on your sound needs, you will have to shop around for a good 5.1 or 7.1 surround unit

How do I get the TV channel for sound to go through my Yahaha HTR-6130 ? What connections or leads do I need to connect the Amp to the TV???

Is it a newer flat-panel tv? Should have an optical audio output jack. Just connect that to an optical input on the receiver.

My Denon Surround Reciever keeps toggling H/P input ON / H/P input OFF. It makes a clicking noise every time and seems to happen at completely random times and intervals between toggles. Please help

You have a faulty head phone jack. you need to replace it with a newer, better one. You might try to clean the one you have with circuit board safe cleaner.

I have a new Samsung 47 in LCD and Kenwood DVD purchased in 2005. I am trying to hook both up to get surround sound from my Kenwood VR-606. My signal is coming from a HD cable box. I'm using HDMI from the...

Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

Kenwood VR-305 receiver surround speakers will not work

make sure that all input cables are in the correct positon also make sure that any inputs you are using don't have a macrovision in them that will also kill your sound due to copyright laws and stuff but main thing check all wires coming in to receiver and if you need more inputs go to walmart and get a rca splitter basicaly its a 1 in two out connection to add more cables in the input

Att uverse sound quality.

The link above is how I fixed mine, because I love the way the functions of Uverse works. Here is the problem HDMI and Optical Dolby 5.1 are delivered in digital packets. The DVR at about 48000. These newer HDMI TV and surround sound receivers are processing the sound packets faster than the DVR can deliver it, and hence, when the TV speakers, (HDMI Source) or surround sound receiver optical source, run out of packets or only get 47999 packets from the DVR instead of 48000, there is a momentary drop out. This is either bad chipset in the DVR, or a sync problem with the software. Dish, Direct TV, and almost all of the cable companies have also had this problem. I had dish, and not only would the sound drop out on the HDMI, but I had to turn off the TV and turn it back on to get sound back. It took Dish about 2 years to fix this. Me I am going to ride it out, because I love the way the Uverse features work, and the honesty of the techs that mad my home visits. They told me that they were working on a software push and shooting for August 2010 to fix this. I am going to write ATT Corporate offices by certified mail RRR, and show them what I had to do to fix their false advertisement, and see if they will credit all or some of the cost of this scaler back to me. In the meantime, if you're not using anything but the TV, set your digital audio on the Uverse DVR off of surround back to stereo, and the dropouts will stop, or buy the scaler. It is an excellent workaround, and it also up converts the DVR's 1080 i signal to clean clear and crisp 1080 p, something ATT will never do. It will also convert the component stereo out into dolby digital sound to the HDMI and optical ins on your TV and receiver. THAT IS THE ONLY SOLUTION I HAVE.

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA

The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!

No surround sound with dolby

I have the same system, the ports for surround speakers only seem to work with the actual surround speakers I bought mine with. I did try to change them but found a sound issue. Looking to buy a new 5 cd changer as mine was damaged during our recent move. Looking to buy model number DX-Z9400M

No sound

The only fuse on you stero is for power it's a 6.3 amp 125 volt it'on the main board. I have the sam problem I found a resistor on the board that controls the power amps on the heat sink. A lab here charges 35 dollar bench charge and if you want them to fix it they will apply it to the job. I own the same model and i went to circuit city they had lot of different system on sell. So before i put that in to an old system i'll buy another one
