Question about Sony DAV-X1 System

1 Answer

Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1

I have connected my cable box to my new DAV-X1 using S-Video cables. I'm using a HDMI cable to connect to my Sharp Aquas 1080 LCD TV. I get cable station sound from the DAV-X1 speakers but no picture on the TV. When I play a DVD the picture and sound are superb.

How do I get a picture on my TV without connecting the Video driectly from my cable box to my TV?

Thank you.

    My problem is similar. I am trying to hook up my cable box via S video (also tried standard video cable) through the DAV-X1 to my Pioneer Plasma using Component Video Cable. I can get sound, but no picture... Help

It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.

Where is the HDMI connection on my Sharp LC-46SB57? I installed X1 and cannot get picture. Sharp Input 1,2&3 are grayed out but Inputs 5Roku & 6blue ray work.


The X1 box acts like a set-top cable box. The HDMI output can be connected to any HDMI connector. There are three HDMI connections on the rear of the set. You have the Blu-Ray connected to one of them, Input 6. You should have no issues with connecting the X1 to either Input 7 or Input 8. There is no specific "TV" HDMI connection. You simply use the remote to select the HDMI port that the X1 is connected to.

The first two links you've probalbly seen before, they show conncections and connectors. I looked at pictures of your system and it would appear that the only input for video and audio is RCA. I think it has s-video for video only(s-video slightly better). The third link is the only way I can see to get what you are asking. It is an HDMI to RCA adaptor. You would use an HDMI cable out from your set top box to the adaptor then, RCA cables to your DAV-S300. It's the only way I can see. Hope this helps.

I have just bought an xbox 360 conected it to my tv allcables connected picture great but no sound


Hi Douglas

I imagine you have bought the new slim Xbox 360? Did you use a HDMI cable to connect it to your TV or did you use the standard cable? If you used a standard AV cable ensure that you connected the red and white cables into the same AV input as the yellow video cable.

I don't have a cable box and have hooked my Sony DAV-X1 system directly into the av input jacks on my tv. I can watch and listen to dvd's but the speakers won't work when watching tv.


What are you doing? Note the following:
The only cable you should connect to your TV from your X1 are the video cables
Logic is you want to use the system for sound and your TV for video only
  • If you have an LCD TV use the HDMI connection for video from your DVDs
  • If not the best video is using the component video (red green blue) i.e connect this to your X1 and your TV input
  • If your TV does not have this just use the video out composite (yellow). On the X1 it is indicated as Monitor
The reason why you do not have any audio from the TV is because you have not connected Audio Out from your TV to your X1. Do the following:
  • Identify if your TV has stereo audio out i.e A/V out should have red and white jacks
  • If this is the case connect this to your input on your X1 corresponding to TV
  • If your TV only has one Audio Out jack you need an RCU cable that has one to two pins and you would connect the single pin to your Audio out on the TV and the two (red/white) to your X1)
  • To listen to audio from TV simply set the input or source setting on your X1 to TV

Let know if this resolves your problem

Need 5-digit code for universal remote on DAV-X1


There may be no code in the library of your Insight remote. You may have to try a different universal remote.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.
