Check you settings on the receiver. get into the menu of the unit and check the "Audio" settings. if you can choose by specific input, select "Digital" otherwise, select "Auto" that should correct the problem. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

Josh, define the 'backfeeding' of the digital audio from the two HD components into Video 1. Those are ANALOG inputs on the VR405. You have two coaxial- and one optical-digital audio input you could/should be using.

I'm surprised you're getting ANY audio (much less digital audio) from the BD and Cable Boxes unless you also have an analog audio path coming in from (what?) the TV.

How do I connect my Kenwood VR-715 surround sound system, Dish Network receiver, and HD LCD TV together so the surround sound works? Can't figure out what goes in the input, the order of the connections or...


Hello,
The best way to do this is to connect you dish network receiver is directly to the tv. Try to use the best video type possible. HDMI is the best, next is component and lastly is composite. This will take care of the video portion. Next, connect digital audio output to the Kenwood Receiver. I dont know what type of a digital audio output your dish box has, but your kenwood receiver has both optical and coaxial inputs so you should be fine there. Once you have both audio and video wired, change the inputs on both your tv and kenwood receiver to the inputs you are connected to. You might need to set up the kenwood to tell it that your running digital audio to it in the setup menus. Hopefully this helps, let me know if you need any clarification.
Good Luck

Need help connecting to surround sound to a vizio sound bar


hi,
did u mean connecting the sound bar to ur tv.
u didn't mentioned the model number of ur sound bar.
any how ur tv has only coaxial digital audio out. no analog audio out. the sound bar may have one digital audio input (optical digital input) and 2 analog inputs. if it has coaxial input it may be very easy.find is there, if not u cant link these devices.
if u are using a satellite receiver then u can connect the optical audio out to ur sound bar's optical input or the analog audio output to any one of the analog audio input.
ok

I cannot get the volume to go above +13 therefore I cannot hear from the speaker son my kenwood vr-5900. It is about 7 years old.


Ok one more clarification, does the volume knob spin infinitley or does it have a set min and max. If it spins infinitley it is an encoder. What an encoder basically does is send a binary signal to a decoder chip which in turn should control a digital potentiometer. Unfortunatley one of these components may be bad.

I have the 405 as well. My TV has an optical out and I run that straight to the 405 optical input. I set the input selector to DVD/CD (not DVD)and presto! TV audio out my speakers. It all comes down to the audio connections on your TV.

Kenwood Receiver connected to my pc


using the Y adapter method (i am guessing you are using just a single stereo mini-jack cable with a mini-jack to RCA adapter) you are only sending a standard Stereo signal to the receiver. Setting 5.1 in windows is just simulating (if using Stereo) or actually mixing 5.1 if you are using analog 5.1 (3 stereo mini-jack cables going to 3 mini-jack to RCA adapters using a 6 channel DVD input). if you have a surround sound audio card i suggest using the Analog 6 channel input by using 3 stereo cables each with their only adapter.

or, if you have a Digital output (Coaxial or TOSlink [optical]) try using that.

good luck.

Kenwood vrs-6100 receivers optical digital


You want to receive the optical signal from the TV's built in decoder / receiver to play through your Kenwood? Maybe you need to select the digital input. The manual says:

Use the INPUT SELECTOR key (or Input Selector keys)
to select DVD, VIDEO or FRONT AUX.

2 Press the INPUT MODE key.
Each press switches the setting as follows:

1 "F-AUTO": Auto detect
("AUTO DETECT" indicator lights up)

2 "D-MANUAL": Fixed to digital input
("DIGITAL" indicator lights up)

3 "ANALOG": Fixed to analog input *
("AUTO DETECT", "DIGITAL" indicator goes off)

Also check your TV to make sure it is outputting to the optical jack.

more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!

No digtal audio with fiber optic jack


hook up a digital audio coaxial cable to it (not the old ones with the pin in the middle that always bends, the new one that looks like an rca cable except its orange instead of red/white/yellow). If it still doesnt play sound then your receiver is probably in analog mode. If it does play sound then its the fiber optic input.

VR-606 DTS won't work


All I can tell you is that "CD/DVD" must be selected as the source when using the optical digital input on the VR-606/616. I don't believe it needs more than one input (optical or coaxial) to output DTS sound, assuming the source is outputting DTS in the first place.
