Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

ONKYO HT-SR700 I recently set up my system to my Toshiba HD player using the optical cable for audio. Currently it is generating a pulsing humming noise and a crackling noise while in the suround modes with the optical hook up. What could be my problem. I tried hooking up the analog cables and it illiminated the noise if I kept it in stereo mode but quickly comes back when in any of the suround modes as well. I would like to let you know that the back right surround speaker wire is running next to a transmitting cellular device for the home security system. Could this one wire be the problem? I have read nothing but good reviews on this system and recently recieved it as a gift. It was ordered online and I really do not want to send it back if this problem can be resolved.

In your DVD player audio setup change the digital output to bitstream. You have not mentioned which DVD player you are using.

Some players it will be given

No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1

if you are using an HDMI cable dont expect sound to come out (even thought HDMI carries both audio and video) the onkyo HT-s5100's Receiver is the HT-r560. the 500 models of the onkyo receiver does not allow HDMI to carry both audio and video. it only allows the video signal to pass to the receiver.

if youre using optical for audio w/c is what you need then these are the steps you need to follow.
*first make sure that the optical connections are ok at the back of the receiver.
*make sure that your DIGITAL INPUT is set to either OPT1 or OPT2 whichever optical input you used to connect the optical cable.
*then go to your PS# settings : go to sound settings / audio moutput settings/ select digital out (optical).

then enjoy.....ü

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.

What is the best audio configuration with this setup?

You can't just plug in optical cables. Both the TV and amp have to be adjusted to allow the different type of signals to pass. I have an Onkyo receiver myself and you have to set the sound type up for each input. It's a bit tricky to do without a manual, but you can probably download one for free if you have lost yours.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable

Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
