Set-up problem with sound and speakers

I have a Sky HD and a Toshiba HD-EP35. I have connected both units by HDMI and recieve video fine. When trying to run through the set-up for the speakers (I have 5 + woofer) using the automatic sound detection mic, it get to the first speaker and tells me (speaker not detected). I can hear sound but only when I turn the receiver up to a high volume. i have checked all the speaker connections.

Re: Set-up problem with sound and speakers

I sent this TX-SR605 system to an authorized dealer for repair. It seems like it is a very simply problem - the internal set-up mic jacket closed circuit, so the system think the set-up mic is always plugged in (even when physically unplugged it, the system still detect plugged in). And it enters the automatic speaker setup and never quit.

Now I have the receiver back home and tested it. Everything worked O.K. now. It is a pity that this new-bought equipment (just one month) need repair for just a small action of plug in a mic ( I swear I plugged it in very tenderly). It is shame for such a unreliable performance happened on brand name like ONKYO. How can you be confident for an equipment failure in one month.

I bought a Sharp Aquos HDTV. Am trying to use a digital co-ax cable to run tv thru my reciever. I get no sound. there is only 1 place on each device to hook up this cable. Any suggestions?

I dont wish to assume that when you say receiver, you mean sattelite or cable. Since you may be trying to hook this up to a surround sound reciever...

Let me also clarify, if this is the case, the receiver needs to be turned on AND the selection signal device set to TV or AUX wherever it is you've connected the TV.

Now by receiver, if you actually meant cable or sat box, then the Ext antena from that service connects to that units ANT IN.

Then from there on that unit ANT OUT to your TV SIGNAL IN.

If you want the external surround sound and have the connectors for this. Then you need to send them OUT to the Stereo/Surround receiver TV IN.

Now having said that and assuming that your TV does not have the Red and White Audio RCA connectors... Your Sat or Cable box does... You connect those to the surround sound Receiver Audio IN

Hopefully you'll find this useful.

If this has not answered the situation. Please feel free to come back and provide all components your working with. Surround reciever, Sat, cable, DVD, VCR whatever etc. etc... I'd be more than glad to help you through this

Good Luck

No audio from pc connected using hdmi

Are you not getting audio to the television speakers and the onkyo reciever speakers when connected HDMI thru the reciever or just the television. If it is just thru the television then it is because the reciever is grabbing the HDMI audio signal and converting it so it does not reach the TV. If it is both then try changing the HDMI signal output from PCM to DOLBY DIGITAL on the computer. Your reciever may not be able to process the PCM signal of the computer. Does the reciever show a PCM or DOBLY DIGITAL display when HDMI is hooked up to it?

Hi with my denon avr 1908 can i run video through HDMI cable and sound trough Coaxial cable so i can get 5.1 surround from my sky HD box

you can get 5.1 using HDMI connection.
other wise in the set up you can configure the denon to not use the hdmi audio and configure that input to use coaxial or optical all digital inputs allow for 5.1 once all connections are made on the front of the unit find the input mode button and select auto

XBox 360 to Reciever to TV via HDMI no sound

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:

Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.

You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!

This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.

True HD can only work with HDMI interface and is only available on some newer HD DVDs. Check the DVD to see if the True HD encoding is available.

Yamaha RX-V2700 skipping when playing a DVD on Toshiba D-R400

Sounds like a poor grounding issue between the units OR maybe they're not as compatible as the Mfg's say.

Could be a bad HDMI cable also. Most are made in the land of Nanking

Display on but no sound from any input

I have a similar problem. I connected a Toshiba HD-a2 dvd player and cannot get digital audio from any of the hd movies. Regular dvd's play just fine. Toshiba told me the receiver is to old and can't process the new format. I was wondering if there is an upgrade for the receiver or any other way I can get 5.1 out of this receiver with out having to get a new one..
