SOURCE: klh r5100 turns itself off after a few seconds

It is over heating. Mine did the same thing. Make sure you have plenty of breathing room for it

SOURCE: connect R5100 to DVR/Monitor

use component audio to the HDTV and optical audio to your KLH reciever. The component and optical are always active at the same time. I work for TWC if you have more questions.

SOURCE: klh r7000 no sound

Like I wrote, I had a similar problem with popping and then no audio for an extended period of time. I found the solution on another site,

Apparently the solder joints are weak, and just as the blog described when I opened up the receiver I saw the same scorch marks from overheating. Just as the blog described, I added solder to each of the joints in the photo and have had no problem ever since.

I am no solder expert, this is my 2nd time, but all I did is build up each of the joints and I have been listening to music, playing movies in surround sound with no problems, no popping for the last 2 weeks.

SOURCE: KLH R5100 will not turn

If you have a power surge protector which costed $10 or under,those aren't what they're cracked up to be.I had my computer on one of those last year,lightning strike,nothing else affected but it fried my hard drive.If you want to at least take off the cover to find a fuse in the input power circuit,it may pay off.Just avoid the blue cylindrical components which are capacitors...normally blue anyhow,they may jolt you slightly.Nothing too serious,I've hit them at least 100 times...small jolt.Sometimes nothing.If there is a nearby repair shop,you could take it there and they should determine what is wrong and give you an estimate free.At least we used to,I don't know if it is a 'universal' policy or not.If you end up having to ship it,it looks kind of big so it may end up costing about $20 to ship,weight alone,other considerations are dimensions on oversize box costs,etc.If you send it in too,even if you don't want it fixed after their estimate,they will normally ship it back free.More things to consider,repair centers have parts a price markup minimum 20%.Labor is $40-$60/hour on top of your shipping.Anyhow,I would at least look for a fuse inside,just track where the wire goes in and follow the circuit lines embedded within the board as far as possible until you are unsure.As far as repair,I have given you some reasonably accurate info on the charges you are looking at.If you find a repair center they can give you a better labor rate,then weigh your pros and cons for repair vs. replace.I would rather not make the decision because I can't see it.By the way,if you have some expensive electronics,game systems,DVD play/record you REALLY want to protect,there is one made by BELKIN which guarantees their product with $ reimbursement should their product fail.The smalles they make is 6 outlet but has a $50k guarantee.I already asked them for just in case and you do not even need the original receipts.It is a little pricy but in the long run pays for itself.I livee in the lightning capital of the US and no problems since.

My sound doesn't work with the DVD fuction. It works on the Tuner, the VHS1 but not DVD. Do I need to connect the S-Video cable or what else should I try?

S-video would be a better choice than (yellow) composite video but it won't help the sound.

Not knowing anything about the DVD player and how you have it wired we can only guess what is wrong with IT or the connection to the KLH.

Have you looked at the manuals for the DVD and the KLH? You don't just hook it up and run with it. Digital Audio must be assigned, for example, and other stuff.

How do I hook it up to a cable box?

The KLH R5100 only supports standard definition.
You would connect either composite (yellow) or S-video to the "Sat" connection on the rear of the receiver. For audio you would connect a stereo (red/white) analog connection to the same "Sat" connection.

If your recvr connect to tv via coax then put your tv on chan. 3 or 4 to reagin pic, if it a tv 2 location try cahn's 22 60 or 73 or run a auto program or auto tune.

Digital Audio moved from TV/SAT to DVD/LD

Using the remote control, push the left arrow until display shows Coax1 (or 2, depending on your setup), then push the up arrow to set it to TV/SAT.
Conversely, depending on your setup, you can push the left arrow to display Comp1 (or2) then push the up arrow to set the correct video setting-- DVD/LD I assume.

Digital/Optical Question

It's a pain in the butt getting the system set up to use the TOSlink from your PC.

Try this:

1. Hit the DVD button.
2. Use MODE/SET to get to DVD/OPT
3. Turn DSP off.
4. Use the TEST/SETUP button to make sure your speakers all work
5. Screw with your sound card!
