Question about Sony STR-DN2010
My Sony STR-DN2010 Shuts off When I turn up volume. I have 5 speakers plus a subwoofer hooked up to it. The subwoofer is self powered/wall powered. Incidentally, this same receiver ALSO seems to have had its HDMI Out to the TV stop working some time ago, not long after I bought it. I, thankfully, have a very nice TV that allowed me to route my entire entertainment system first into it, and then via digital optical audio cable to the receiver, so that I now have the video arriving firsthand at the TV, and the audio arriving secondhand at the receiver *from* the TV. My first concern is of course making sure I can turn up the volume without having the whole thing trip some kind of safety mechanism to shut it down.... And secondly: Has anybody heard of HDMI Out jacks just going bad? The last bit of info I think may be helpful is this: If I have it all set up as if I were going to run my video and audio through the receiver to the TV, the TV DOES recognize that there is a signal of some kind arriving by HDMI in that jack--- As it doesn't switch over to auto-shut off, as it would if you left it on a Source setting with absolutely no signal coming in..... So it knows that SOMETHING is coming down the pipe. But no audio or video to speak of from this receiver.
The unit shutting down when you turn it up sounds like a bad speaker hooked up to it. That is the most likely cause. As far as the hdmi problem, with the receiver turned off, press and hold the power button until it says 'clearing' on the front panel. This will reset the unit. Many times it is just a setting that is messed up. If that doesn't fix the hdmi problem, then there is most likely a problem with the hdmi switching IC which will require that board to be replaced.

SOURCE: optical inputs
In short yes!
If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.
If i was you i would do the following:
1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.
That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.
However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.
But in short yes to your question.
hope this is not too confusing.

Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

SOURCE: NO AUDIO/set up problems
For this Sony, you have to use separate audio cable(s). Either optical in BD or Digital Audio in DVD (single coaxial cable will do the trick) I bet the display says UNLOCK. I had the same problem, very dumb.

SOURCE: Sony PCM 48 Issue
As long as you continue to have both HDMI and optical outputs connected at same time from the cable box, it will probably always choose the default as HDMI. If you do not want to change any connections then the best thing to do in this case is to always leave the cable box turned on. Otherwise, disconnect the HDMI and connect it to the TV by component video.

SOURCE: sound cuts out- cable tv
I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).
