How do we connect our system using a Shaw PVR

Do you have a optical/coaxial input on your system? Eg: cable, TV.I use a optical input on my Yamaha ( cable, satellite ). Look to see if there is a optical/coaxial output on your pvr, there should be. Use ether the optical or coaxial output from your pvr and connect it to the cable (satellite ) optical/coaxial input on your receiver. The manual that came with your Shaw PVR should explain how. You will get 5.1 surround if available on certain channels.I prefer optical over coaxial myself, but they both work well.If you don't have optical/coaxial inputs on your receiver, you will have to use RCA cables, analogue out on cable box, to tape input or aux on your receiver. You will not get surround sound, just stereo. But it's better than nothing.

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Sub would only sound when am listening to radio would not sound when playing dud aux but surround speakers play

Possible that the connection to the AUX does not activate if you are using RCA inputs. Connect the DVD using the optical cable or the coaxial link and it must play better with surround and subwoofer in DTS.

NO OPTICAL SOUND I connected HDMI from reciever to TV, HDMI from PS3 to TV, Optical from PS3 to Receiver (PS3 Sound settings switched to Optical, with Dolby Digital 5.1CH, and Dolby DTS 5.1 selected) ...

I think your problem might be at the digital audio setup at the receiver. To fix this, go into the setup under digital audio and make sure that the input that your connected to is set to optical, not analog or coaxial. Example if your plugged into video 1, make sure that the audio setting corresponds to the optical input where your connected. Video 1-optical-1.
Good Luck

I need 5.1 channel input cable

More info needed. What are you connecting to what? I believe you mean digital Optical or Coaxial cable. So what's the question? If you need one go buy one.

My $0.2 on that - if you have a choice between optical and coaxial, use coaxial. 1) they're just common RCA cables and you may have one already; 2) they're cheap and you can extend them to any reasonable length.

How to get non-hd DD or DTS sound from blue-ray on old receivers

It is not necessarily what features you have to look for, it is what connections you need to look for. Most blu ray players have the hdmi ports. On my blue ray I found it and it has the fiber optic end. I have used that and to me it sound just as good.

MX 3950D Philips - PS3 no sound

Aside from the xbox360 working via the coaxial digital cable. I got the PS3 to work this way.

I had to use the supplied SCART > (Y-video) (Red-Audio) (White-Audio) cable. Basically plugged this in from the PS3 directly to the MX 3950D Aux (Auxiliary) audio input.

On the PS3 audio settings menu, switched from HDMI to the 3rd option SCART.

Turn on the MX 3950D and set to Aux. Bang, got sound again.


I missed this cause I "assumed" the video/audio cable that came with the PS3 was a HDMI to Audio/Video cable, and didn't even see the SCART port in the back of the PS3. So I thought I didn't want to lose 1080p ..etc etc. Anyways. MX 3950D still good =)

DTS Doesn't works with my PS3

there are a few versions of DTS. if you are enabling DTS HD master on the menu for a blu ray disc this only outputs through the HDMI port not optical. This goes with all the new versions of DTS. If it is just DTS 5.1 it should go through. Make sure you have all the latest updates for your PS3. Make sure you are enabling DTS in the PS3 menu for optical out.( i dont own one so i dont know the menu at all) I just want to help. I hope this helps alittle and good luck with this.
