SOURCE: hooking up optical input output

What kind ot TV?

Not sure what you mean by all signals.

Think about this: if your TV had any AUDIO capabilities that were superior to your REAL audio components, why would you need them?

The TV is the end of the line. Wouldn't it make more sense to get your TV-related audio as close to the source as possible? Your BD, DVD, cable and satellite all have high end audio outputs just begging for a place in the Pioneer.

Maybe you have MUTING selected. Turn the volume knob up or toggle the Mute control on the remote.

If it defaults to muting on power up find the manual and search it for a default volume setting.

SOURCE: My Pioneer VSX-D557 keeps clicking

I'd suspect a wild remote control or other I/R source in the area. Hide all the known remotes and block the I/R eyeball on the front of the receiver and see if it still happens.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D308 reciever and I have... no idea how to hook it up to my big TV (bought receiver used). Do I need the red/white cords? Do I need other cables? HELP! Wanting to hook up to big...


What your unidentified TV >>requires<< is the BEST Video from every video source. That would be the DVD, SAT Box. It probably has multiple high-end video inputs, right?

What your receiver needs is at least a basic composite video connection to the TV so you can set it up and manage it.

A web search for "Pioneer VSX-D308 manual" will find the manual.

ALL of the BEST Audio should go directly to the Pioneer. That includes the SAT and DVD player.

Your TV can exist just fine with basic audio from the video sources. And you could still watch it/them without the Pioneer turned of if you want.

I can't find the exact manual for free anywhere but if you download something similar like http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-D409-Receivers-manual/id/385ci977/t/2/ it should give you the basic guidance you need.

I recommend

Do some web searching for what the cables are for. It's all basic and standard.

When i plug in the head phones into my pioneer dsx-d557 receiver the speakers stay on. The headphone jack works but whats the point if the speakers still work.


It may seeem counter-intuitve but there are those who would love to have that ability.

You can always turn the speakers off while you're in the vicinity of the front panel plugging in the headphones.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

Rca preout not putting out anything after amp/subs are hooked up and ready to pound


On most Pioneer's, there is an option in the main menu that allows you to turn the sub-out on or off. This must be on to let a signal pass from the head unit to the amp. Check this, and if it is on, try replacing the RCA cables. Let me know if this helps :)

No amplification


The transistors are marked with the part # on them A1302 for example would be 2SA1302. most transistors all you do is add "2S" to the front. If the fuse opened then you may only need the two transistors, if it did not then you will need to replace the dual emmitter resistor and a few resistors 4.7ohm and 100ohm are common in pioneers.

Hooking up surround sound


to get the digital you have to have the digital optical line or the coax rca jack digital audio connection from device to stereo reciever to get the dolby digital surround sound to work , otherwise you can only get a virtual surround sound from the reciever( no dolby digital )
