Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver

1 Answer

No picture? I can get my speakers to work; however, I can't get any picture at all. I can get a picture from my dvd to projector using component video. Mind you, when the picture goes through the STR-DG510 the picture is lost but keeps the sound. I use the same jacks in the projector both times, I'm wondering if i have to change a setting on the STR-DG510? (it is set to DVD)

Re: No picture?

I called sony, even though the manuel shows that you can use a component wire to hook up the set top box and hdmi for the tv and dvd sony claims that you can not do this. The cable box must also be wired with an hdmi cable going into the video 2 claims it doesn't work using component and hdmi together because the receiver is unable to up convert. I hope this helps. I have not tried it yet (i'm at work) we'll see what happens when i get home.

Manual too confusing

The easiest way to think of your equipment is that in it's name is it's function; it "receives" signals. Then sends them out through the speakers. There are only a few exceptions in that there may additional outputs depending on the design...they may be for video or external amplifiers.
All of your components you would like to connect to the receiver will have output connections. Power off all components. Connect those to the labeled input on the receiver. If a component that you are connecting has both audio AND video such as a DVD player or TV, both connections must be made to the same input section to be able to use them simultaneously.

Denon AVR 1610 hdmi to component video conversion missing?

hello i believe your problem is that you are trying to downconvert from hdmi to component connections and Denon receivers will not do that.

I have a 4310 and I know it will UPconvert from an analog signal to HDMI but won't do it the other way around.

you may have to use component inputs for all your equipment. You will also have to go into the receivers menu and designate which signal is being used for each component as it won't auto select between analog and digital signals when it comes to video.

hope that helps

Harman Kardon AVR325 stays in standby mode

Was a solution ever found for this? I have almost the same problem, except that mine makes a horrible sound through the speakers before it shuts off. However, after an attempt or two, mine usually starts working and sounds fine (I love how this thing sounds!). It seems to happen more when I've let it sit for a week or two. When I use it regularly, it usually works fine. It's almost like it knows when I'm about to give in and replace it... because it will start working again! Maybe I just need to make an effort to use it more....

Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound Speakers

The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.

No video

The Denon does not down scale you can not plug a DVD or other device in to the Denon using HDMI and have it come out Component, if your projector only has Component video inputs you must use Component video connections from the DVD and Cable box to the Denon

Xbox connectivity problem

As dumb as this sounds here is the mistake Sony made. The receiver does not process sound from the HDMI, it will only pass through that data to you TV. So you will not be able to get sound from your 5.1 speaker setup if you only connect the HDMI, you have to use the matching audio input for that respective HDMI input. Make sense? So the HDMI DVD Input must have digital coax for sound, HDMI Video2 must have fiber optic for sound, and there is another fiber optic port for the Sat input. Yes thats right, if you have 2 HDMI HD components and each only has fiber optic(neither one has digital coax) you cant hook both up properly the way you would think. Sony made this receiver poorly, turning High Definition Multimedia Interface into High Definition Multimedia Except For Audio Interface.
