Question about Onkyo HT-SR800 System

1 Answer

Dvd connection Hi, Is there any other way of connecting a dvd player to the Onkyo HT-SR800 besides connecting the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the tv? Also, I have a standard dvd player using composite cables. Would there be any difference in the quality of the picture if I were to switch to all componet cables until I can get a better HD Dvd componet? Thanks

Yes! You can pass the video signal through the receiver. This is most useful when you have more than one video device (e.g. DVD, cable box, VCR,...), and you can use the receiver to switch to the audio and video for the selected source at the same time.

On the back of your Onkyo HT-SR800 there is a section labeled "Component Video." It has three inputs and one output. So, attach your DVD by component cables to the "DVD In" and then attach component cables from the "OUT" receiver connection to the TV.

If your TV doesn't have a component connection, then this addresses your other question. You can't gain anything with this, because your TV doesn't support it. Connect the DVD to the TV according to the highest quality connection that they both support, in this order: composite, S-Video, component.

If you are using composite, but they both handle composite, than yes, you will get a better picture by going to component (or even S-Video). If both devices support progressive scan, this could be a substantial difference.

Your receiver accepts component, s-video and component video, but keep in mind, it may not do "video switching." So if you connect the DVD in via component, but go out to the TV over composite, then you may not get any video at all (but feel free to try). Try to avoid this, but you may be forced to try depending on the limitations of the various devices that you are hooking up.

    Note:
    "Connect the DVD to the TV according to the highest quality connection..."

    Although you can do this directly as stated, per the rest of the comments, I really meant that you connect the DVD to the Onkyo and the Onkyo to the TV.

Sound from Onkyo CD player well and fine. Then connected the Samsung DVD HT-Z310 to Video3 (L/R audio in, V-in from L/R Audio out and V-out of Samsung) but no sound or nor video on TV? Tried to fix it...


What am I missing here?

There are a lot of models mentioned in this post. What are WE discussing?

* A Samsung HT-Z310 is a Home Theater System.

* An Onkyo TX-DS777 is higher-end AV Receiver that DOES have a Video 3 input which accepts composite video and analog audio.

* An Onkyo CD player is irrelevant to the TV sound in any scenario.

* Unnamed TV.

I don't see any path in your narrative that would carry audio TO the TV. Is there an unmentioned HDMI cable in here somewhere? I see no other audio outputs on the HTZ.

Are you running the HT-Z310 through an Onkyo receiver to somewhere (?) else?

The fewer hops and inteconnects a given signal experiences between its source and your senses, the better. I always run the BEST video from any source to the TV first; the best Audio to the BEST audio electronics. If that helps.

I have purchase an onkyo HT-RC230 receiver. I want to connect a Directv R16-500 DVR & RCA L32W22 TV. Directv satelite service is currently connected to the DVR and DVR is connected composit S ports of ...


This is a rather uncomplicated satellite receiver, and basically only has a left/right audio out.
You can hook these into any of the stereo type inputs on the HT-RC230.
This receiver is also the "wal-mart" brand of Onkyo (not their best stuff) - so I suggest you take the L/R audio out on the DVR and put it into ANY available (cd/tape/dvd) stereo input on the receiver.
You aren't going to get better sound out of any specific input.

Connecting TV and DVD for surround sound


HDMI is fantastic in that's the only thing you need to plug in to get what you want.
You'll need two of them however. Plug one end of the HDMI cord into the HDMI "OUT" on the dvd player and the other end of it to the receiver..labeled HDMI 'IN' Then, take the second cord and do that step with the receiver back to your big screen...HDMI OUT to IN.
Surround sound from TV sources only needs a L&R audio cable connected to the receiver input labled TV or MONITOR audio IN. Unless you'd like 5.1 dolby digital or DTS from the television that requires devices that you haven't mentioned owning. In that case you will be able to get Dolby ProLogic and Pro Logic II from stereo broad casted sources on your TV.

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv


Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

Video disappears within 30 seconds


Hi Mark

I am going to take a stab in the dark here...

Did you plug the hdmi from the receiver to hdmi via the monitor hdmi output? this is needed so when you change the device on the receiver ie. between setop box and dvd the monitor changes with it accordingly.

You may also need to go to the setop box to set it to use hdmi output at the right frequencies too..ie. 720p 1080i or 1080p.Also set it so it only sends the picture via hdmi but audio still with optical out.

good luck

Check out Onkyo's website: The HT-SR 800 description says "a separate audio connection is necessary" Maybe it is true for the --750 too.

Replacement for Onkyo DVD Player


You do not worry about the DVD player, any brand of DVD Player has compatible for that system because the output of all DVD player has already synchronizing the output impedance of the DVD to the input of your system. And you are looking for the best resolution of DVD player so you can try either sony, jvc, pioneer.and many more, but the best thing you can do is to bring the sample CD that you already know the picture and then you can try to play into the DVD that what you have selected.
