Composite Video hook-up question

I am trying to get the best out of all my equipment and am re-hooking everything up. I have a DVD recorder and a DISH satellite DVR box. Both of these have Fiber Optic Audio connections (which will hook up to my HTR-5730 receiver). My question is:

Do I still need to connect the white, red, and yellow audio and video from the DISH and DVD recorder to the receiver, or can I just go from the DVD recorder and DISH directly to the TV via composite video or S-video connections?

Re: Composite Video hook-up question

Generally, you only need one 'full' set of connections. If you are using s-video, you'll still need audio red and white or fiber...not both. Fiber is better. Where are you going to get your audio from? That's where you'll want to direct your feed. Some people cheat and run the red/white to the TV when they're too lazy to turn on the receiver! Mute it if it annoys you.

How do I hook up a Pioneer VSX-918V receiver to Sat.Dish box?

For the audio portion, you must have either a digital coax, optical connection or analog L/R composite RCA jacks plugged into the " in" on the rear panel of the chassis. The other end of THAT connection must come from the "audio out/ variable out" from the T.V. or from the Sat.Dish box.

I just bought an Harmonkardon AVR 354 7.1 receiver and am having trouble hooking up the HK DVD 48, the Sony Bravia and the Hd cable box. The tv has four HDMI hook ups and the dvd has 1 and the cable has...

I see only two potential HDMI sources - Cable and DVD. You have three possible inputs to choose from. BTW: Composite Video is also HD in an analog form. Keep it in mind for the future.

You have an HDMI Out for feeding one input on the TV.

Ponder why all the devices have separate (and multiple) high-end audio and high-def video paths. This is what I do...

NO signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops' and it gets expensive zig-zagging a signal all over the room especially if it only passes through a device on the way to another one with no improvement. K-I-S-S is the word of the day. Run the BEST version of any signal directly from its source to the BEST electronics that will present it to you for consumption.

RX-V465 output HDMI 1 will work but HDMI 2-4 won't, also when I hook up Wii via rca to receiver only get sound no picture.

This receiver has only one HDMI output, but 4 HDMI inputs. If some inputs don't work, try connecting the equipment (DVD for example) to HDMI input which works with other equipment....
For the RCA (composite) video input - it won't work, because this receiver don't have any video processing circuit.
So HDMI input video goes to HDMI outout connector.
Composite (RCA) video input goes to Composite outout and no other video output.
S-video input goes only to s-video output.

Component Video Inputs/Outputs Not Behaving as advertised

I have had this problem in the Field with a Client. I had fixed it by going into the ADCOM menu and Resetting ALL of the Inputs and output for the Devices. You have to select everything you need, then exit out of the Menu, SHUT OFF the ADCOM, WAIT about 10 secs, then turn it back on. Or Else it Does Not SAVE Properly! Weird. If you can not see the Menu on the TV Screen then try to hook up a Composite (Yellow) cable from the ADCOM to the TV and select the TV input to make the Changes. I really hope this helps out it sounds like an Evasive problem which is hard not being in front of the Equipment!

HDMI out to Olevia 527 TV = Blue Screen

Hi beelzyboob.. try checking these.. since you are using the RCA (composite cables) and I assume you have them on the "DVD in" at the back, go to setup, go to input assignment and go to hdmi input. here, make sure dvd is set to" ----". Next, hit return and go down to component input and also check if dvd is set to "-----". With these settings, you should get video. This is because you are not using either an HDMI or component cable. hope this helps.. ^_^

Video Monitor

Check the Setup menu. Goto Video setup and make sure "conversion" is on. Another way to test is to hook up DVD, Cable Box etc. using only the standard "composite" video output (yellow). It should pass thru monitor out regardless of the internal setting on the receiver. Most electronics now are hooked up with Component, HDMI, or DVI which would require the receiver to downconvert the signal in order for you to view it on another video source. Hope this helps. If you still have a problem, list all your equipment model #s and I can troubleshoot more accurately.

Video input not recognized for LD and DVD

By coaxial, do you mean the composite (yellow)? Either way you have to use the same style no matter what the cable. I mean, if you have s-video's IN to the reciever then you need S-videos OUT to the TV. ....Component IN to the reciever? then Component OUT to the TV. And so on. You cant have composite cords going into the reciever and use a component cord out to the TV (with the exception of a few models).

Hook up

Karri, I do not have the photo of the back, but attached is a general wiring diagram for any Audio-video Home theater system. If you have a Home Theater Receiver, then hook it up as the diagram. If not, hook it up per the comments in the diagram. This is how I hooked up my ONKYO HT system with my SONY Combo DVD recorder and my Mitsubishi TV. One thing to note on Combos, is that the VCR Tape section will not play through the High Definition connections (HDMI, and Digital Audio). You have to use the older method of Audio-Video (AV) cables or the Co-axial antenna cables. You can ask more questions if there is any confusions. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
