Re: no 5.1 sounds

Need some more info. Make sure the optic out light is on on your DVD player or whatever your outsource is. On your home theater make sure you continue to hit the source button until it selects the optic channel (AV1, AV2, Coax, Optic) should be some of the selections avaliable.

Upgraded older HD TV to a Sharp 70" smart TV & Home Theater Receiver (Yamaha RX-V575. Have AT&T U-verse HD Cable box. What is the connection sequence using HDMI cables. Searched Yamaha and AT&T sites and...

I dont know about your particular hd hookup , but I take the hdmi cable out of my dish reciever/dvr [digital video recorder] and run it straight to the hdmi input #2 in the back of my apex 40 in lcd-hd-tv

I think take the hdmi output from the at&t u-verse cable box and plug it into the hdmi input of your 70 in sharp smart tv

that will get the input signal from your cable box ,both video & audio, into your tv set.
on the back of your tv set
there should be audio outputs for home theater audio systems that would plug into the audio inputs of the home theater system.

prehaps i am wrong because you say that your yamaha is a home theater* reciever.* is the yahama more than a home theater audio system? What does it recieve?

Idea-- the salesman that you bought it from should be willing to help tell you how to hook it up.

also consider that there are many different ways to hook up vcr's and then dv recorders and dvd recorders and external 2 tera bite hard drives into my tv & dvr . I got that all hooked in & a rats nest of wires. so i can record in hd or sd,on vhs or dvd or dvr
point is that you cant hurt anything by plugging the wrong plug into the wrong jack, as long as the same type of plug goes into the same type of jack.
If its right,it works, if its wrong, it wont work until you plug it into the proper jack.

im sorry ,im 65 am not into knowing all the latest and greatest cutting edge tech ,but i am begining to catch up on my hobby, movie recording tech.

Can i connect a home theatre to my tv PT4252HD

Hi Marianken433 - Your HDTV was made for such a setup. It would work with with pretty much any home theater system, as your TV has multiple connectors for audio and video and can handle a full array of media devices.

If you decide to get the home theater there is an easy to follow and well illustrated guide on hooking things up HERE.

Enjoy your Home Theater System and thanks for using Fix Ya.

How it get sound through the optical cable through a pioneer tv?

You normally need to tell the system that it is receiving an optical signal, on mine, which is a different model you have to select the relevant button that corresponds with the area in which you plugged the optical cable (ie video 1, video 2, audio 1, audio 2) and then press the system button followed by the set-up button. You should then be able to scroll across the options with the arrow keys, watching the display until you see input analog, then use the up and down arrows until you see optical. Bingo you should have sound!

I need the code for my older rca home theater system for my sanyo tv remote

rca recomends that you use the "code search" option that many universal remotes offer.

you can always use this remote code search from rca themselfs if the have your product listed:

for your rca home theater code it is

dvd code:3160
Audio code:4300

you can also try these:4259, 4264, 4265, 4266, 4290, 4300, 4350. they are for audio receivers/amps. these should work, If not give me a message back.

as for Sanyo try these codes: 1004, 1048, 1049, 1073, 1080, 1107, 1162, 1169, 1180, 1196

Hope I helped get your home theater running agian!

Adding vcr & rec to a '93

Please hook up VCR with TV through RF cable and check picture of VCR playback in TV.

Now you can hook DVD player video-audio out in VCR input and can have dvd playback picture in TV via VCR modulator.

If you want to listen sound via receiver then hook audio red-white cable between VCR audio out and receiver audio in terminals.

Let me know exact model numbers of units to help you out more.
Thank you.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV

Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.

Connecting up

Easy set up, Hook up all the components to the back of the TV normally and then use a stereo cable from the tv to your reciever.
Usually on the tv it says audio out or variable audio out, this will go straight to your reciever on one input allowing all devices on your tv to be hooked through your reciever on one cable and the sound will come from the tv and reciever at the same time or you can turn the audio off on the tv., you can also hook up any optical audio outs from your devices to your reciever as well. This will allow for surround sound to your reciever.

You will need a Digital Optical cable to hook it to the JVC. You should use a Component video cable to hook it to the TV.
