Question about Directv HR20-700

1 Answer

Hooked up an optical cable for digital audio output (from my HR20-700) going into my Pioneer Elite Receiver and it isn't working. Do I need to configure something? Same cable works fine when I put it between my DVD and the Pioneer Receiver.

    Guess I will try that. Didn't need to do anything for the DVR as it seemed to sense the input. The SAT input didn't. I can see the light on in the Digital Audio Output so that makes sense. When I plugged the Digital Audio Output into the DVR input of the Pioneer, that didn't seem to work either. Can't test it out until some construction is done as I'm having my components all built in to a wall cutout and have my receiver disconnected until it is done.

There should be an option to turn this on in the audio settings from the pioneer.

I can't find your TV model to have a look at the manual. Normally you'd use a 3-plug RCA cable (Red, White, Yellow) to connect the audio and video outputs of the DVR to an RCA input on the TV. Then, hoping you have RCA OUTPUTS from the TV, you'd use a 2-plug RCA cable to take an Audio OUT from the TV into one of the receiver's Audio inputs (assuming you want to play TV sound through the receiver.
If you have no RCA inputs on the TV, you can get an RCA to HDMI Converter from Amazon for $10-$15 to convert the output of the DVD player from 3-plug RCA to HDMI, then put that into one of the HDMI inputs on the TV. Likewise, if you have only an OPTICAL audio output from the TV you can get a converter for that -- Optical audio to RCA stereo -- and put that into your receiver as an input.

Just got att u-verse and the digital audio output is distorted.


I'd run this by ATT.

If the audio output digital feed is strong enough for the receiver to accept it then the actual audio on the digital carrier is probably the problem. If there is a coaxial output on the cable box, I'd try that, too, to isolate the optical and HDMI as the problem or not.

Or shoot the cable audio into the place your Blu-Ray is connected to prove if it works the same or different.

I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

depends what audio outputs you have on the sky box,analogue (two phono usually red for right channel and white left channel)in which case just use phono leads to the phono inputs,Optical(toslink),connect an optical cable from the output to the optical input on the dvd channel of the pioneer,coaxial (spdif)connect to spdif input on the laser disk input of the pioneer,dont connect to the attenuated spdif.In the unlikeley event of the sky box not having any audio outputs,just use the outputs from the tv to the pioneer.The optical digital input gives the best quality on the vsa eo6

HELP Blu-Ray to Pioneer DVD Suround System connection


The receiver that came with your speakers should have a digital input for a dolby digital source. On the back of the receiver it's probably labled "digital coax" or it could be an optical as well.
Your new Blu-Ray has these outputs on the back. it's as simple as getting the correct cable and selecting that input on the receiver.
To make sure you get the right cable, look at the back of the receiver, and the blu-ray. Look for the digital input on the receiver, and get a cable that matches that. It's either a single RCA cable, or an optical.

So when done, you will have the HDMI or Component out from the Blu-Ray going to the TV, and the digital audio going to the receiver. To hear the sound through the receiver, just go to that input on the receiver.

Digital audio problems


Try using a different cable for starters, regular rca, another optical or coaxial. If the optical works, then its a cable problem. If the coaxial works(and another optical doesnt), then its a cable/jack problem. If the RCA works(and the rest don't), then its a problem with the digital output. Try blowing into the holes, and if nothing works and you can't find any other advice, contact Pioneer. Good luck
