AVR 1508 Reciever Setup Issue

Just bought new AVR 1508 Rec and trying to run DVD, Cable/Dish video and audio through the 1508. Connection to monitor is through HDMI. When i connect DVD only audio comes and in case of cable/dish no video/Audio. I want to connect DVD, Cable and VCR directly to 1508 and connect to monitor just using HDMI. But it is not working. Any suggestions?

Re: AVR 1508 Reciever Setup Issue

AVR 1508 doesn't upconvert. Only components coming in on HDMI will go out HDMI.

Audio Issue

You may have tried this, but when you hook up audio out from TV to audio in on reciever, did you try the different input options for the reciever. Often times, audio in is an aux1 or aux2 setting on the receiver. If it is working with the DVD player, it is functional, you just have to get the wires hooked up and get the reciever on the correct setting. Also, even if you have TV audio out correctly configured to audio in AND on the correct input setting, the TV volume will have to be UP as well as the receiver volume. NOT ALL THE WAY UP (you'll blow your speakers), but up about 25% for you to hear it.

Issues Displaying picture from HDMI upconversion

I've posted this other places. Hope it helps.

My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.

Video Inputs for Denon AVR 589

manual is here:

Note on page 11 says "because video signals are out put from the AVR-589's monitor output terminal IN THE SAME FORMAT AS THE VIDEO SIGNALS, THE MONITOR OUTPUT TERMINAL SHOULD BE THE SAME TYPE AS THE TERMINAL USED FOR INPUT."

You cannot mix the HDMI with the others. You must therefore use the same on DVD and Cable box.

Best Regards and happy new year!

Best way to connect new system

After trying several ways, we decided the best picture was to run the blue ray (out) directly to the TV (in) with an HDMI and another HDMI from the sat. box(out) to TV(in), then optical audio from TV (out) to receiver (in). This way you don't have to change channels on the reciever when switching from TV to DVD. Remember that HDMI is one cable that supports audio and video. If you are using all Samsung products and want to use one remote, using the Anynet feature, I think it has to be connected with an HDMI. I'm going to try connecting an HDMI too from the reciever to the TV to see if this feature will work. It does with the Blue Ray.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection

HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.

hi dennon guy

you need to connect all your components to your receiver then from the receiver to the tv via the monitor out at the back of your receiver.

you need to make sure they are all the same type of cables. ie if you are using hdmi then make sure the dvd is hdmi output to hdmi input of the receiver then the receiver is hdmi output to the input of the tv. This will give you the best setup.

of course if u use component cables then the same principles applies.

good luck

Hooking up home theater

Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
