Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

Can't seem to get surround sound with my Sony STR-DG510 AV receiver to work through a Comcast RNG150 HD cable box to my Samsung UN55F6300 Snmart tv. Can anyone help!

I have but 3 HDMI ports on the receiver (output, vid2/BD and DVD) The Comcast set-top box only has 1 HDMI port. The TV has 4 HDMI ports.

SOURCE: HDMI f/ dvd, dvr, receiver and tv

best set up if you have all hdmi is to have all your components go into the receiver ie. hd cable box, dvd etc. by using the hdmi output from the player(s) to the hdmi input to the receiver. next use one hdmi cable from the receiver to the tv then your laughing.

good luck

SOURCE: I'm using receiver AVR 2309 and now I would like to connect my cable TV set top box which has HDMI port with this receiver. Which HDMI port (DVD/HDP/VCR or V.AUX) on this receiver should I connect

The DVD/HDP/VCR port will give you the high definition sound properties. If not then connect the set top to your receiver via RCA cables... red/white/yellow

Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 no sound


The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.

I think you have to run a separate audio line from the dvd to the 510, because the HDMI is only passive

No picture?


I called sony, even though the manuel shows that you can use a component wire to hook up the set top box and hdmi for the tv and dvd sony claims that you can not do this. The cable box must also be wired with an hdmi cable going into the video 2 port.sony claims it doesn't work using component and hdmi together because the receiver is unable to up convert. I hope this helps. I have not tried it yet (i'm at work) we'll see what happens when i get home.
