Sell this receiver to someone that is not a friend of yours....$50 or best offer...take $20 cuz that's all it's worth. I had one, and it's not worth much more than the box it was shipped in.

How can i connect my kenwood vr-505 to my t.v only


I assume you mean you want TV-related sound to play through the Kenwood.

It's in the manual.

I personally would recommend minimum TV involvement in sound and minimum receiver involvement in video, but that's just me.

You might want to ponder why you would need audio from a TV in the first place if it originates elsewhere like a Cable Box. The fewer hops and interconnects a given signal takes on the way from the source to your ears, the better (and cheaper, too, as optical or HDMI cable is expensive). You COULD skip the TV entirely. Many don't even HAVE audio (monitors, for example). The receiver only NEEDS a basic composite video output to the TV so you can use the TV for setup and control. You COULD run vanilla stereo audio to the TV from the Cable Box for watching Oprah.


I run all of my best DIGITAL audio directly from the sources to my VSX and the best DIGITAL video directly from the sources to the TV.

I need to hook up my Kenwood vr-207 to a satellite HD receiver and blue ray player. How do I hook up the component cables. I am not sure where to plug in the "in's" and "outs".


In's always go to Out's.

The VR207 has no component video inputs, just a composite video output so you can use your TV for the receiver's On Screen Display.

http://www.kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/UnitedStates/Home/Manuals/vr207.pdf

Just run your BluRay and Cable box HiDef HDMI, component, s-video, composite video, whatever (in that order of preference) to a matching input on your TV or monitor.

As a rule you should run the best audio from each of your video sources to the VR. There is no compelling reason to ever send good audio or video to a device that has little (or no) use for it.

Unfortunately, the VR207 has no digital audio inputs, so the best it can muster regarding surround is Dolby Pro Logic derived from 2-channel inputs.

BUT, if you have a DVD, BLURAY player or cable Box with 5.1 analog outputs you can let their internal circuitry decode Dolby Digital programming to true 5.1 for input ("DVD/6CH") to the VR207.

Your TV is NOT an audio source by itself. It's job is to make pretty visual stimulus for your eyes, not your ears. Everything IT hears comes from somewhere else like a DVD, BluRay, Cable Box, right?

Get the absolute best TV-related audio directly from the digital audio outputs of each source you're watching, not the TV.

Got a Kenwood vr405 surround receiver, a Sanyo plasma TV, hd cable box and an insignia blu ray player. Both the cable box and the blu ray player are connected via hdmi to the TV and the TV is connected to...


If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

Does kenwood VR-405 play DTS-HD Master


I have the 405 and a Samsung 3600 which has onboard DTS Master/ Dolby True HD. Out of the 6 movies I 've watched, only 2 have given me Dolby Digital. Bottom line: If the movie doesn't have DD, you cant get DD on the 405. I thought just about all blu rays had DD but its not so. Its time for us to upgrade!

Is your tv wired to a cable box or an HD antenna?

Case 1: If your signal is weak, then the chances are that the feedback from your tv to the receiver's processor cannot interpret a Dolby Digital signal.

Case 2: Check the TV MENU AUDIO setting. Does your TV have a ON/OFF feature for the optical output, or any aux. speaker outputs?
