    Same basic problem. I have TiVo HD and PS3. If I plug either one into the digital optical audio in port OPT1 - either device works fine with the input set to the DVD/LD switch. But no matter which device I plug into OPT2, I cannot set to TV/SAT, CD, AUX, VCR or any input setting to use the 2nd digital optical input. Manual is useless, doesn't give any indication on which input to use for OPT2 - it shows a picture example for plugging in a DVD on OPT1 and a CDR on OPT2. It says that if you plug in a device with both analog and digital, you can switch between them, and if you only plug in one or the other, it will always use that one, but never really maps the OPT1/2 ports to any input. OPT1 is clearly mapped to DVD/LD, but OPT2 is either dead/broken on my box, or I'm really clueless...

    Thanks

Discovered, with help, that the manual actually did cover this. Around pages 20-21 described the way that you can set which inputs each of the OPT1/OPT2/COAX inputs get assigned to. Basically scroll through the different setup options on the remote till you find the settings for the OPT2 - in my case it was set to "Off" - which explains things. Just switched to TV and voila, worked great.

Hi,here is my simple solution...
To listen your TV on your
samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your
dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI ..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your
dvd player.

Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know..

I cant get the surround sound to work after connecting the Samsung BluRay Player to my Onkyo reciever using a optical digital connection or directly with the HDMI cable ?


Hi

You will have to assign the optical input to the input you are using, so for instance if you have plugged the optical cable into opt 1 on the onkyo reciever and wish to use the DVD input on the onkyo reciever, you need to go into the set of the onkyo to digital assignments or in/out assignments, dependent on the model, and select OPT1 for the DVD input. You can find out how to exactly do this in the onkyo's manual under 'digital assignments' or 'input assignments'.

I have the onkyo tx sr502, onkyo dv sp402e with the speakers..etc.. i'm trying to set up the whole thing to a normal television. that is, what cables go from what components, out/inputs..etc..and which...


Hi troy my names Josh i would be glad to be able to help you with your setup. First things first some people have a preference with they way they like things and for one do myself. I set up and intstalled my home theatre. I have receiver much like yours. On the back of your reciever you should have multiple inputs of coarse some for sound some for video. Your sound inputs would include digital optical, digital coax, standard analog which of coarse is the red and white RCA inputs and then a multi in which i doubt you have. So lets start simple If you have satalite or some form of cable i would assume you have your reciever box feeding a signal to your tv and the same for your DVD. I would recommend for your sat. that you connect your picture and sound strait to the tv rather it be component video or s video or standard video source or connect then for your sound strait analog to your tv thats just Red and White RCAs which will give you your sound to your tv. Repeat the same for your DVD depending on the kind of inputs and number of inputs you have on your TV. Now for the sound to your reciever. I ran digital sound from both my DVD and my Satilite to the reciever which means on the back of your recievers providing you have a similar configuration you would look for a plug on your dvd player that says optical thats your digital to run sound to your onkyo and the same for your sat or cable if you have a box look for either digital optical or a single digtal coax output that will also be ran to the onkyo for sound. You should only have two cables running to the onkyo one fiber optic from your dvd to the onkyo and one digital coax or fiber optic to your onkyo depending on the number of those inputs you have on the back of the onkyo you can run it how ever you want.

Pioneer VSX-D307 Receiver - no audio using DVD inputs


Sometimes the default on receivers in dvd mode will be digital. Make sure you are on an analog input or just try an optical or digital coax out of the dvd player and be done.

I have a 50 incch samsung tv with samsung surrond sound/receiver/dvd player. I have no voices when we play a dvd but the music plays what is wrong


You need to have the audio from the DVD player hooked up to the same input path on the receiver.(if your running video thru the receiver) DVD audio should be hooked up to either an analog input (RCA cables) or Digital input like Digital Coaxial or Optical. Next to where you are plugging in these cables will be writing like "DVD optical" or "DVD digital". Then, make sure you switch the input of the receiver to "DVD" then it should work fine. If you still have problems post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps

I want to hook a system


you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work

DVD optical/TOSLINK input no longer working


If it's only the DVD input, and you had tested it systematically, like you'd stated, then the input connector could be loose or defective.

Optical inputs


In short yes!

If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

If i was you i would do the following:

1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

But in short yes to your question.

hope this is not too confusing.

good luck

Pioneer VSX-D409 - Remote Control Problem Hello. I'm from Brazil and I have a 12 years old Pioneer VSX-D409 Receiver. My problem is related to the page 16 and 17 of the Owner's Manual. I'm trying to do the steps to Set up the surround mode, changing some settings and the type of connection I use to delivers sound to receiver, using optical cables. Well... I just cannot enter this mode, the surround setting mode. At this moment I'm hearing the sound from a FM station on the speakers. But just this function works. Tuner, wiht FM station. The remote control works only to: - Turn on or off the receiver. - Change the volume level. - Set the loudness function (on or off). - Change the function of the receiver (to select Tuner, DVD, TV or other device in, but I don't gain access to change some specs like distance, speakers volume levels or type of connection of each device). And nothing more. The remote control has seven buttons on the top: DVD/LD, TV/SAT, VCR/DVR, CD, TUNER, CD-R/TAPE/MD and TV CONT. According to the source device you want to use, you just press the button and the receiver selects the IN connection (coaxial or optical or just the Tuner to listen FM stations) and reproduces the audio. Until last week, anytime I press this button, the source device was selected. But, of course, I didn't use all of them. Just two: TV SAT and DVD. Why? This receiver has two optical IN units on its backside. I have two optical cables connected in the receiver. Optical 1 is connected to a PS3 and Optical 2 is connected to a SmarTV. Before my hollyday's trip, all the connections were allright. But not today!! The problem is: I do not have access to the process to change the type of connection that is assigned to the device I've choosen. I want to do this: TV/SAT --> OPT1 (to the audio from PS3); DVD --> OPT2 (to the audio from Smartv); The process is described at the page 16 to 21 of the owner's manual. But, it doesn't starts. Seems my remote control just forgeted how to do this or is blocked in another function. I don't know how to fix it and need some tip or help. Thank You! :)
