Home theater set up

I have Onkyo 605. Ran HDMI to tv from receiver - optical from blu ray to receiver and hdmi. NO video. SO I ran HDMI directly to tv from blu ray and optic to receiver. Now I get a picture but the back speakers do not work. I doesn't sound surround. The back speakers test ok but no sound with videos. How is best to hook up - blu ray(sony), receiver, and tv (plasma panasonic on hdmi input)? Thanks Shar

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.

How to hook up direct tv box,samsung hd tv,pioneer vsx-820 receiver,samsung blue ray bd-c5500

If you're using HDMI cables, which I suggest you do, this is how you set it up.
From the TV, you'll connect an HDMI cable to your receiver.
Connect the blu-ray player to your receiver.
There's a small amount of setup required with the receiver, but it's self explanatory.

How I can connect my Samsung Home Theatre System ( 7-1 channels AV receiver) using the HDMI V 1.4 3D cables to connect them to to my LG 55 LX 9500 3D HDTV LED TV . The equipments are :( LG Blu Ray...

ideally you would simply add an hdmi source from each device to the surround receiver and send the output to the tv but im thinking your amp may be short on inputs from all devices and if indeed it was this simple you wouldnt be here seeking this info also note you may be able to use the output on the set to gain another signal tranfer but note there can be compatability issues on some sets whether they will decode hdmi in and rca out or optical out like i said some sets ok :) i wish you luck and wishin i had this all in front of me so i could be a greater help any q's drop me a comment here ok :)

When connecting motorola dct6412 to samsung tv, blu-ray player & avr via HDMI (DVI), do you run the HDMI from dvd & cable box to the avr, then seperate HDMI to the tv?

If you have more than one HDMI port on your TV,
run one HDMI cable from the DCT6412 to the TV,
and one HDMI cable from the BluRay unit to the TV.
Then, use the "source" (or "input") control on the TV's remote-control to select either 'HDMI1' or 'HDMI2'.

No longer getting video feed through Home Theatre receiver

HDMI ports 5 and 6 on the back of tv no longer are working. (We had a series of thunder storms so don't know if that is how they got damaged or if it was something else) but moved HDMI input cable to HDMI port 4 on tv and everything is working again. Service call placed for warranty service on tv to repair bad ports.

I am using an HDMI cable on my STR-DG710 and get no sound

A lot of devices like PS3, HD DVD Players, Cable boxes, etc., require you to define on the setup menu if sound will be coming out of the HDMI cable or not. Most of these devices can be set to HDMI Auto, but not all of them do.

I currently have both my Blu-ray and HD DVD player outputting both video and sound through my HDMI into my STR-DG710. Both devices are setup to output sound through the HDMI.

But like the other person on here posted, it you have a DVI to HDMI cable, you won't be getting sound. The only device that will output sound from a DVI to HDMI are select computer graphics adapters like the GeForce 9800 GT series video cards, and even not all of those will have this feature.

Hope this helps.

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.

No audio from Samsung DTB-H260F

I have a sr605 Onkyo receiver and just hooked it up to a new Mitsubishi 73" and I could not get the picture to work, sound did though. Here is the problem the Onkyo is HDMI 1.3 but TV calls for HDMI 1.3a. There is a big difference between the 2 and the Onkyo will not work with TV. The newer model TV'S say in the manual Category 2 V 1.3a. You need to make sure that all your parts are compatable. It makes a big difference.
