We are getting S-video on the screen instead of HDMI. there is no picture and no sound. HELP!!

You have to check the input assignment setting of the AVR. In all AVR's there is a setting which will allow us to choose which in put have t assign to a specific unit.Like (DVD, CABLE,etc).
Here i have added the link to the user manual

Check the page number 83. There its describes how to change and modify the input assignment setting .

If you need any more assistance feel free to contact me by fixya.

Hi, My home system has been working fine, but last week suddently i am not able to get any sounds when i am using my dvd player. The sound system works when I am watching Cable? Jan

Lacking specific connection details. Check the cables, settings (digital vs analog) and assignment of the digital input that accepts the unidentified DVD player. Check the settings within the DVD player. SWAP the DVD player's cable to another input and see what happens.

My television picture does not appear on my zone 1 and zone 2 television. I just get a blue screen although I get audio. The crazy thing is that when the function is set to DVD. I get the picture. I...

Hi. Most likely the assigned input isn't correctly setup. Try this:

1. Press 'setup' on your remote control.
2. Navigate to 'Input Assign'.
3. Navigate to the correct next option (HDMI/Component/Digital) - this depends on how you have connected your DVD player up.
4. Find the name of the connection you've plugged your DVD into (physically look at the back of the receiver).
5. Select the DVD option, and press left/right until you have selected the correct input.

You may need to change to Tuner then back to DVD, but that should do it.

If you need further help, please let me know exactly how you've connected your DVD player (HDMI? component?), and the name of the physical connection you've plugged into.

Hope that helps!

Cant get coaxel wire to give me sound

You need the remote to turn the coax input on or off and assign it to SAT, DVD, CD, or MD/ TAPE 1.
Press the receiver button on the remote then use the < > buttons 'till coax appears in the display. The up-down or center cursour buttons should turn it on-off, and I think the < > buttons assign coax in to the source you want to use it with. You wound naturally want to assign it to the same source as the video signal if it coming from a dvd player or sat receiver.

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.. ^_^

HDMI sound?

I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.

This is definitely a question of wrong cable assignment. I have the same reciever and have no such issues. What do you mean by "I get the cable signal with no sound from the DVD source"... Those are two different sources ???
