Connecting a Samsung 620 1 6203 tv to sony str-d1015 receiver ?

If this is an older surround sound receiver and you're trying to hook it up to a flat screen LCD LED TV the only option would be to use the yellow video out to the yellow video in on the back of your TV. Most new TVs have HDMI inputs so to hook up the receiver to that you would either have to use a converter which can be purchased through Mcm Electronics or you can run the sound through your receiver using the red and white or if it's surround sound the coaxial Jack what will be orange in color or the digital jack which would be a small square black hinged door on the back. And then you could run the HDMI directly to your TV from your DVD player or Blu ray player or cable box

I have a vizio tv, sony dvd player and direct tv. i also have a denon avr-1905/785 surround sound receiver. i can't get the surrond sound to work while watching tv but it be comes through if i am watching...

If your TV has audio out and your surround sound has an audio in you need to get a lead to connect them together, most of them have - then you just select the Aux on the DVD/surround player (or whatever the input is called on the back) and everything comes through your speakers. If you only have headphone out jack on the TV it will mean you won't have your TV speakers working. I hope this is not really obvious to you and it was the first thing you tried!

hook your front speaker wires up to the A side and on the front of it make sure only the A speakers are playing but leave the rear speakers plugged into the B side then hit the listen mode button and you should be rocking

No play back from HDTV to threater system

Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.

Getting Surround to work

The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!

Yamaha reciever rx-v363

Thats because if you look in the owner's manual, it declares the fact that it will only broadcast sound from hdmi to monitor not speakers. For sound out of speakers need to connect additional audio cable.
