Re: kenwood 606 receiver

Disconnecting the tv from the audio connections on your amp may have created a powersurge in the audio input selector IC. Try powering down the amp at the wall completely for 5 mins and turn it on again. Check to see if operation has returned. If not then it may need an audio selector chip replaced.

This problem can be caused when connecting or disconnecting rca connectors from non earthed equipment like TV and VCRs, By the nature of this type of connector, it will spike the input line by connecting with voltages floating often over 100volts.

to avert this problem occurring, wire all the equipment up and with aerial disconnected and tv / vcr turned off at the wall socket. Turn the equipment power on at the wall last thing.

Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

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.

Kenwood vr-405 receiver

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.

Receiver standby light,no power

WOOHOO!! I fixed this issue... same problem as everyone else has mentioned... to reset the Kenwood VR-606 receiver, unplug the unit. Hold the power button down and while holding the power button plug the unit in.
Say a prayer...
Then press the power button.
My display isn't working, but my speakers are working, and that's really all I care about right now... good luck to others!

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.
