Question about Onkyo TX-SR604 Receiver

1 Answer

Cable connection to Onkyo TX-SR605 7.1

I recently purchased the Onkyo TX-SR605.  This is my first experience with home theater.  I have a 32" Akai lcd flat-screen.  I have an HDMI cable connecting the receiver to TV.  This is the only cable I want to run to the TV from the receiver.  DVDs work fine.  However, I don't know how to connect the coaxial cable to the receiver.  There is no input for it on the back of the receiver.  Previously, I just screwed the cable into the TV (I don't have digital cable; just regular).  Do I need some kind of converter box?  If so, can you recommend one?  Also, I'd like to install an HD antenna to pick up HD signals over the air.  I have the same question on this kind of connection to the receiver.  Is there a box that will accept both the regular cable, and the HD antenna cable, and convert it to another type of connector that will fit the receiver?  Sorry if this question seems basic; I've never done this!

    Same problem.  Is there no way to use some sort of adapter to serve as the middleman between the basic cable coaxial to the receiver??

You will have to connect your coax to the tv coax input.You can view cable this way.To use the hdmi input to tv,you will have to change your input settings back and forth on the tv menu from hdmi to rf input.There is no way to hook your cable to the txsr.

How to Connect HT-CN300 Subwoofer to Onkyo TX-SR313?


Hello! You will most likely need a RCA cable with single ends (both being male ends) One end plugs into your subwoofer input....marked subwoofer input on the subwoofer..........The other end will plug into your receiver that is marked subwoofer . When low frequencys from your media.....whether dvd,s /cable or audio cd,s is present the sub woofer will kick in , Make shure to adjust your setting on the rear of the sub if it has any like volume or frequency , most better subs have them as where the home theater in a box combo usually does not!

Sound from Onkyo CD player well and fine. Then connected the Samsung DVD HT-Z310 to Video3 (L/R audio in, V-in from L/R Audio out and V-out of Samsung) but no sound or nor video on TV? Tried to fix it...


What am I missing here?

There are a lot of models mentioned in this post. What are WE discussing?

* A Samsung HT-Z310 is a Home Theater System.

* An Onkyo TX-DS777 is higher-end AV Receiver that DOES have a Video 3 input which accepts composite video and analog audio.

* An Onkyo CD player is irrelevant to the TV sound in any scenario.

* Unnamed TV.

I don't see any path in your narrative that would carry audio TO the TV. Is there an unmentioned HDMI cable in here somewhere? I see no other audio outputs on the HTZ.

Are you running the HT-Z310 through an Onkyo receiver to somewhere (?) else?

The fewer hops and inteconnects a given signal experiences between its source and your senses, the better. I always run the BEST video from any source to the TV first; the best Audio to the BEST audio electronics. If that helps.

You will need to purchase a scart to HDMI converter - available in the UK for about £40.

If you Google 'Scart to HDMI converter' you should find several options, which will be cheaper if you are in the US!

Unfortunately the Humax box you have only supports Scart A/V I/O, which is of course now obsolete.

Hoe to connect Bose Lifestyle 25 Home Theater System speakers to onkyo SRX-508


Do you mean TX-SR508? The following should work even if that is not the exact model.

The LS25 supports ONLY analog stereo audio input and the speakers themselves are NOT desigend to be driven by anything BUT the LS25 electronics.

If you still want to use the LS25 as speakers just run an RCA cable pair from VCR / DVR Out on the Onkyo to the AUX IN on the LS25 Music Center.

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best
