Jamo dmr 61 dvd receiver

Hi I bought this receiver a couple of days ago, set it up with the jamo a 10 series surround sound speakers. The receiver worked great for an hour I was listening to tv through it. Then I put in a cd and listened to that for a few minutes. I switched back to the tv for a few minutes and then the power to the receiver seemed to fail. When it is plugged in now I just get flashing blue lights around the port for the usb connection so it appears to be getting some power but it just wont turn on.

Can you help?

If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.

If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.

SOURCE: 5.1 Surround Sound Cutting Out

Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure,
only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.

SOURCE: the surround sound only plays on dvd not tv

most tv shows will only be broadcast in 2.0 not 5.1 or higher. if you have a converter box, that may also be the problem.

You need a digital audio fiber optic cable. You can get them at Walmart, Radio Shack, Target, just about anywhere. They are not real expensive around $15

How do you connect a Jamo sub250 to a Onkyo tx-sr343 av receiver

You simply connect a RCA type line cable from the subs line input to the dedicated socket on the back of the Onkyo.
When you run speaker set up it will set the subwoofer up.

Should I use DVD, MP3 or Game audio inputs to hook up my dish hopper for surround sound

Surround Sound is achieved by setting up a surround sound capable receiver and the appropriate number of speakers(5.1,7.1,9.1).

Audio outputs from the cable box are connected to the receiver audio inputs.

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

Sound Problems with HD TV

This seems to be a problem that has to do with your HDMI audio output.
First check in your TV setting if audio out is selected on your correct HDMI port. Than check if your receiver is able to receive audio via HDMI (i assume you used the HDMI connection). Some receivers have HDMI IN connections but are not able to receive audio on it, the latest receivers/sets do have this feature. If your receiver doesnot support audio IN via HDMI you can only do one thing, connect the stereo audio-out of your TV to an AUX IN connection on your receiver.

Surround sound

It must be about the sound quality need of your amplifier. The sound processor simply needs to get clear signals from sources such as fm/am receiver, dvd/cd players etc. in order to manage'em to give you the optimum surround sound. If the fm receiver has an "FM MUTE" option, I recommend that you turn it on. By doing so, you'll receive only good quality fm stations, furthermore your amplifier will let you get surround sound. The second issue you mentioned has its own answer inside. Use a "new" cd player, you can get optical cables, digital coax cables to improve the performance if you like..
