Question about Onkyo TX-SV545 Receiver
MY REMOTE IS NOT WORKING FOR MY ONKYO TX-SV525. IN ADDITION TO THAT THE REAR SURROUND SPEAKER INPUT, FRONT "B" SPEAKER INPUTS AND SUBWOOFER INPUT DO NOT PRODUCE ANY SOUND WHEN I HOOK UP SPEAKERS TO THEM. MY CENTER WORKS AND THE TWO MAIN "A" FRONT LEFT AND RIGHT SPEAKER JACKS ARE THE ONLY ONES I GET SOUND FROM? WITHOUT THE REMOTE OR PURCHASING THE HARMONY REMOTE, IS THERE ANY WAY TO CHECK THE SETTINGS? ON THE RECEIVER OR ADJUST THE LEVELS OF THOSE SPEAKERS? IF IT IS NOT THE SETTINGS, CAN THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE RECEIVER BE REPLACED IF THEY WENT BAD. ALSO I HAVE ANOTHER NEWER ONKYO THAT I HAVE THE REMOTE FOR SO I TRIED USING THAT REMOTE BUT ONLY A FEW BUTTONS LIKE VOLUME, TEST , AND THE BUTTON TO SWITCH TO A OR B SPEAKERS RESULT IN A RESPONSE FROM THE OLDER RECEIVER. CAN I SET THIS REMOTE UP FOR MY TX-SV525, TO OPERATES BOTH RECEIVERS?

Hey Tad, I have the same problem and perhaps a solution. I just moved to the other SW "pre-out" and it seems to be working..the green light is on . Whatever works i guess.

Yes turing on the "A" speaker is required for the Onkyo, but that only turns on the 2 front speakers in the "A" speaker jacks.
You may also need to check and see if the Onkyo has a menu selection in the setup menu that will turn on the sub woofer output on the back of the receiver.
I have seen on countless occasions where people just have a hard time finding that sub woofer option on their receiver.
I do not have the manuals for this Onkyo, so I can not tell you the exact way to find it.
I have been repairing surround receivers since they have been on the market and beleive me, you are not alone in this situation.
Sometimes it seems like you need a Phd. in programming or something similar just to firgure out how to set one of these up.
The solution should be in your owners manual, with the problem then being, just where in the manual. Go slowly thru it paying the closest attention to anything about set up procedures.
I have also seen at times where the setup for the sub-woofer is not listed as sub-woofer, but as "LFE" (low frequency effect) . So keep your eyes open for that.
something else, your sub woofer may have an auto turn on. That means it will only turn on if it detects an input signal. Make sure yo uhave the volume up enough on the receiver to trigger that auto turn on if yours has one.
I would like to have been more help, but without the manuals I can only give you general type thngs to look for. These type of receivers are all so different and all so complicated to operate. The days of just turning on a stereo, selecting your source and turning up the volume seem to be over.
Let me know if you need any more assistance from me.
p.s. Very nice system you have, when you get the Kef working I think you are going to just love this system. and Onkyo has the best quality receivers in their price range.

Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

The same rating fuse will work as long as the "Ampere" side is the same. The "Voltage" of the fuse determines the input Voltage that will be allowed. As long as you are sure that the input will only be 120V the fuse will work properly but I would recommend using the same Voltage and Amperage of the original fuse since it may fail again. Given that information if it does blow again I would recommend taking it to a specialist. A 3 Phase fuse is only available to 3 Phase inputs (480V). Unless you live in a large compound your house doesn't have that type of capability.

You need to tell it you have surround speakers. Page 30.
The manual is available here...
