Question about Sony DAV-X1 System

1 Answer

No Speaker cord

I bought the Dav-x1 system off Ebay. It said it didn't come with cables, but I figured it would be like most systems and I could just use my own RCA cables or speaker wire. Well, it looks like I need a special cable. And if I did the research right, that cable is over $93 and I about dropped dead when I saw that. Is there a way I can make my own cable? I'm not too concerned about the quality of this player. It's sitting in my workout room and it's not for my main room. Is there schematics available so I know where the wires should connect so I can just use my own stuff?

Dav-x1 no audio

Most likely some one hit the wrong button on the remote. Make sure you have the proper device selected and the tv is setup for the proper device input. It is hard to tell you what is exactly wrong due that I do not know the full extend of your system.

I don't have a cable box and have hooked my Sony DAV-X1 system directly into the av input jacks on my tv. I can watch and listen to dvd's but the speakers won't work when watching tv.

What are you doing? Note the following:
The only cable you should connect to your TV from your X1 are the video cables
Logic is you want to use the system for sound and your TV for video only
  • If you have an LCD TV use the HDMI connection for video from your DVDs
  • If not the best video is using the component video (red green blue) i.e connect this to your X1 and your TV input
  • If your TV does not have this just use the video out composite (yellow). On the X1 it is indicated as Monitor
The reason why you do not have any audio from the TV is because you have not connected Audio Out from your TV to your X1. Do the following:
  • Identify if your TV has stereo audio out i.e A/V out should have red and white jacks
  • If this is the case connect this to your input on your X1 corresponding to TV
  • If your TV only has one Audio Out jack you need an RCU cable that has one to two pins and you would connect the single pin to your Audio out on the TV and the two (red/white) to your X1)
  • To listen to audio from TV simply set the input or source setting on your X1 to TV

Let know if this resolves your problem

Can I extend existing speaker cables

As long as the cables are properly connected you shouldn't lose quality in the sound. If its the front speaker cables you want to extend then contact sony and ask them for the rear cables which you can then substitue for the front ones which are considerably shorter.

Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1

It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.
