How to adjust the sound/audio level from a satellite receiver

Normally one can alter the sound level by going into the 'services' section using the remote control - but this box has no 'sound' position on the list of different things one can set/change.

Most sat receivers have a fixed 0dBm output at the audio out port, designed to be input into an amplifier, or audio input to a TV.

SOURCE: Audio Out Fixed/Variable

Is your subwoofer amplified or passive?

You clearly understand that you need to use a variable line out to control the subwoofer volume via the TV. As the setup seems reasonable, I'm wondering if the subwoofer is getting a signal, but that it is at line-level and not internally amplified by the subwoofer speaker. Generally, if the subwoofer must be plugged into an AC socket in the wall, it has an internal amplifier and can be fed line-level audio. If it is "passive", it has no amplifier, and it must receive an amplified signal (over speaker wire) from an amplifier (or integrated receiver). TV's don't generally have connections to send out an amplified signal.

If the subwoofer is indeed amplified, then this is obviously not the problem, but it's the first thing to verify given the information provided.

SOURCE: No Sound on RCA L46WD22

I own the L46WD22 for a few months and lost the sound and analog inputs, only HDMI worked, apparently this is a design flaw and they should have recalled all units. I didn't really needed the speakers because I have a sony receiver where I playback the sounds, but I decided to repair it myself after I neglected to take it out to the repair center and use the warranty. If you have a little soldering experience you can fix it, or you can buy the fuse and take it to any repair center, the problem is a surface mounted fuse that is located in the PCBA where all the signal inputs are, the component location is 1C33 the fuse has the letter F printed on it, you can't miss it, it's about 2 inches behind the tuner where you plug the coaxial cable. the fuse I bought it's marked with a G letter, it's 750mA, I just soldered it on top of the one it has, now I can hear the speaker and use the analog inputs (and now I'm the hero and have a very happy wife). the whole fix took me about two hours

Give them the model number of your television and the problem you are having with the use of the headphones. I hope this information helps you solve your problem. How do I get headphones to work with my TV? o Connect the headphone cable to the headphone jack on the side of your TV. o The sound will be heard through both the headphones and on the TV speakers. o Press Mute to hear sound only through the headphones. o Use the volume buttons on the remote to adjust the volume level. o You must remember to press mute again to hear sound through speakers. It will not automatically come on when you unplug the headphones.

TV audio output vastly different for satellite feed versus DVD feed. Why?


It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.

Sound cuts off when whatching tv


This is common when you are using an antenna to receive a digital signal. When the signal isn't strong enough normally the first thing that you will lose is the audio. I would try installing an antenna or adjusting the antenna that you already have. If this does not improve the issue or if you are using satellite or cable television service, I would contact the provider. Rarely have I seen an issue like this where the actual television is the culprit.

Can't change from MONO to AUTO mode


Hello
Can't make sound from mono to auto is your problem I thinks and posts this solution.
Hit the "Menu" button and surf through, come to "Sound Adjust" window.
The settings allow you to change and adjust sound in your TV. There are Bass, Treble and Balance control to adjust to your individual taste.
To adjust them
1. Press Menu button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select the desired item.
3. Press => or 4. Press EXIT button when finished.
When adjusting the parameter of "Balance" control, always set it to mid position to get stereo sound from both speakers. If it is set to any extreme end, there will be no output from the speaker of that side, and will hear as mono.
If you press "0" [Zero] button, you can reset the sound settings to it Factory settings.
To select 'Streo mode;
1. Press "Menu" button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select MTS [Multi-channel Telivision Sound].
3. Press => or [The ON AIR arrowtells you if a broadcast is in stereo AND/OR contains the SAP.
Press "Exit" button when finished.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo

mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.

Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.

I want the speaking voice to be loader than the background voice


I think you mean you want to alter the balance between the center speaker and the others.

Assuming you've performed the initial speaker level adjustments according to the manual (available at retrevo.com), it is also possible, via the remote, to alter any channel level while listening to a program. See the Tip on page 49.

Hello I can hardly hear on all of my channels. I have directv and I can't get a reasonable volume. Is there something I can do to fix this problem?


Directv low volume problem.
One sure way to eliminate Directv's low volume and any other volume problems in general is by installing a stereo compressor between your Directv receivers audio outputs and your TV's audio inputs. (Simply plug the compressor's outputs into TV and your receiver outputs into the compressor's inputs). By correctly setting the controls on the compressor, you won't loose the dynamic program content. Not only will it raise the volume level to where you want it be, it will also prevent it from exceeding any set level you chose, actually limiting how loud any sound can be. These settings are fully adjustable. In other words when you switch from Directv back to a dvd or any source, no more sound blasting, you can set levels to be the same now since you have raised then adjusted Directv's level to normal. Plus a compressor will raise those low hard to hear audio sections often found in movies. This is the reason we used them all the time in the recording industry. Another benefit is it levels all channels on Directv. The result, channels are now the same volume. This is what I'm doing to end the problem. Hope this helps someone. J Pynckel

How do you connect projector to satellite receiver


Hi
A satellite receiver is no different to connect when it comes projector than a vcr, dvd player etc.

There will be Video out RCA plug normally yellow in color. There there are two chords for Audio. Normally Red for the right channel and white for the left. Both RCA. If your receiver is mono, you will have only one audio.

There are corresponding jacks in the projector. There might be a video out and audio out in the projector. You can ignore those.

If you use a amplifier, The connections will go from receiver to amp and from amp to projector. It is a good idea to have an amp in between. You don't have to send the audio to the projector (which normally is not great sound quality). Just use the home hifi for it.

So summary of ideal connection :
-Video out receiver in yellow RCA to video in projector.
- One or two Audio out (Red+White RCA) from receiver to your Hifi Audio in

Listen to Hifi and watch thru projector.

Cheers

what audio cable type are you using, if its digital, you might have to assign that digital audio input with the video signal? go back over your cabling, and make sure the audio is not going to the wrong input and also check that SP/DIF (coxial or toslink) is enabled on the setup menu for the blue ray player and satilite, they normally disable it by default to save a little bit of power, also on a yamaha receveir should have a indication light that lights when a signal/decoding is in action, refer to your documention and trouble shooting section of the manual, hope this helps

When I hook up the RCA cables from the Phono to minimal volume


PHONO requires a phono-equipped receiver, which the STR-DE598 appears to NOT be. AUX will not work because it requires Line Level inout. Traditional old-school turntables put out a very tiny drastically-altered signal which needs preamplification to raise it and flatten it out for use by downstream circuitry. THAT is the job of the PHONO section in a preamp or receiver. You need to find a phono preamp or an older receiver to run the TT through. You could slave it to the STR through its AUX then.

Low treble


I suspect that the speaker levels need to be set. You connected everything right - many people would not have connected the sats via the bass section (which has their high pass crossover and overload protection). But I am betting the HSU is turned up a bit on the high side.

Try this. Set all speakers to small, set all levels to 0. Play the receiver in stereo all mode. If the bass is strong, you need to turn the HSU down closer to a natural sound. Then use the speaker setup tone and adjust as needed.
