My Pioneer XV-DV282AP home theatre has no Audio output. Every time I put the volume up/down, it keeps on saying HDMI/TV Audio. It only works with an HDMI cable using the speaker from the Television.

The system is set up to output sound through HDMI to the TV. You can change the setting so the sound is sent to the speakers. The process for changing the HDMI output setting is in page 41 of the manual. You want to choose the AMPsetting. I have included a link to the manual and copied the text below.


2. Use ?/? to select HDMI SET then press

3. Use ?/? to choose HDMI MODE then
press ENTER.

4. Use ?/? to choose the setting you want
then press ENTER.
• AMP - Output Audio sound of the DVD/CD
and USB function signal from this system
• TV - Output Audio sound of the DVD/CD
and USB function signal from a TV or flat
screen TV.

Internal speakers won't turn off when external audio is connected

Normally , you would expect the TV sound to stop when headphones are plugged in. Obviously not in this case. If you have a set of headphones, try them and see if the TV still has speakers on. If it does, then there may be a setting on the setup of the TV to get headphones to work. If the TV speakers stop, then I would think that the Logitech are not compatible with the TV. The only other thing would be is to get into the TV and disconnect the TV,s own speakers. If the wires are soldered on and not terminal connected, carefully cut 1 of the wires off near the speaker. If 1 wire is cut, the speaker wont work. Make sure both the TV and the additional speakers (If they have their own power supply) you are using are unplugged from the power before you go doing this...!

Dav-dx250 volume is very low with maximum volume

How does it sound when you calibrate the speakers (page 75)? THAT is how the basic hardware is verified. Anything that doesn't work after that is usually a setup or source issue. Read the manual.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

I would like to hook up my philips hts3544 to my hdtv. i have a satelite receiver in between . i cant always get the hts to provide volume for my tv . can you advise me how to

Manuals answer most of those types of questions.

SAT IN BETWEEN THEM? WHY?? HOW? Treat the SAT as an A/V audio source.

Provide "volume" for the TV?? What's that mean? No sound or no control of it?

Most TV's have multiple Video inputs. The SAT should go STRAIGHT to it. The digital audio, if available on a coaxial digital output, SHOULD be run to the HTS's coax digital input.

The TV speakers will never be under control of the HTS. TheTV volume would handle that end. What's the point? Are the TV speakers BETTER?
The HDMI cable CAN carry the audio to it. As the manual says,

"Make sure that the audio output setting is not turned off. See 'Setup Menu Options - { Audio Setup Page -
HDMI Audio }' for details."

Go to and drill down to the HTS3544/37 directory for the manual. The alpha directories are slow loading. Be patient.

Sony DAV-DZ660 Theatre system. How can I change the output volume and tone for each speaker please?

there should be a speaker set up button on your remote, it will play "white noise" through each speaker in your system, one spearker at a time, as each speaker plays you can adjust its volume, the idea being to balance the system to sound good from your sitting position. try to get each speaker to be appriximately the same volume level. If you have the manual for this system, this setup should be listed in the index or somewhere.

I have a sony home theater system. my cable box volume is all the way up but still with watching TV the volume is so low, eventhough the volume on the sony system is set to "MAX". also i get a...

First, TURN THE VOLUME DOWN. We don't test with max volume any more than we start our cars with the accelerator floored.

How is the audio from your TV getting to the HTS? Name names and be specific.

Your TV audio output may be dependent on its volume control. Many TV's have a FIXED setting in their setup so you can lower or turn their speakers off while letting REAL electronics and speakers handle the sound duty.

OR, you could (and should) bypass the TV entirely as an audio source and go to the cable box's audio output.

Rear speakers not working

Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls.

No sound from tv through unit

You may have to enter TV menu and see if you have a AUDIO setup option, some TV`s you have to enable TV AUDIO OUTPUT, this cancels the built in tv speakers and engages the AUDIO OUTPUT jacks on the TV
