Question about Onkyo TX-DS595 Receiver

1 Answer

Video output issues

I have an Onkyo DS595 A/V receiver, purchased in 2003. I have a VCR, video iPod, and DVD connected to V1, V2, and DVD respectively. Video out (using RCA) goes to a TV set up as a monitor. Recently, video output from the receiver becomes distorted (warped output, fuzz) from all the video devices. Driving the TV directly from VCR or DVD works fine (no distortion). I have replaced the RCA output to the TV with several different patch cords but the problem recurs. Power cycling the receiver can sometimes correct the problem. Is this conclusively a h/w failure? Anything I can do short of taking it to a shop? If not, what's the likely cost of the repair?

This is probably a problem of the relays - yes, there are small relays inside to switch the video in/output.
In this case i think the contacts are the problem. you cant open the relays, so they have to be replaced...
better solution: use a better videostandard such as component or hdmi - do not use the receiver to switch the videosignals, use only for sound...

How to connect Sony dvd player to onkyo TX-8511 receiver


The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:

Hi lechap,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008 as per his last post Feb 13.....

If I figure your concerns right, they are:
1. You have an iPod on an Onkyo IPod dock that you want to connect to an Onkyo receiver TX-302;
2. You have an Onkyo receiver TX-302 that you want to power a set of Bose Cinemate speakers;
3. the connectors on some do not fit or are not the same;
4. you want to know what goes to where.

If I may suggest:
a. connect the L/R Audio Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the L/R Audio IN of VIDEO 1 using a pair of RCA to RCA cable. Connect the S Video Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the Video IN of VIDEO 1 using an S Video to RCA Video cable. Thereafter if you want to watch a movie or play music from your iPod, you need to choose Video 1 in the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You can of course choose any other VIDEO 1~3;572fcdc.jpg34ab5d3.jpg

b. all other source/devices may be connected similarly using the same scheme on any of the free VIDEO / AUDIO inputs
c. of course the MONITOR OUT goes to your TV or projector.

With respect to the Bose Cinemate, it would not be technically correct to connect the Bose Cinemate speakers straight to the speaker out of the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You need to install another set of speakers to the speaker outs of the Onkyo receiver. The Bose Cinamate system's TV AUDIO could be connected to the TAPE OUT (or the AUDIO L/R OUT of VIDEO 1)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a sony bravia TV with an optical audio out. I have plugged the optical cable from the tv out and into the DVD optical 1 input and receive no sound? I have setup the audio to optical 1 and still not...


Most of the old Sony TVs released before 2007 has an issue with its optical output. only when you use a direct cable connection to its VHF/UHF input, the optical outputs audio. Otherwise, you have to stick on the A/V connection to receive the TV audio though sound system. Please get back to me with the model # of the TV so that I can check whether the TV comes under the category.
Thanks for understanding.

[TX-DS595] My Video 1 stopped working, no audio, (Right before the super bowl!) yet I get audio on DVD & Tuner. What could be the problem? Thanks, Ira S. Cohen


Well, what's on Video 1 and is IT okay?

You don't say if you're using the analog audio associated with Vid 1 or if you have digital audio coming in and assigned to Vid 1. Check the cables. If using the optical, make sure it has no small-radius bends.

If analog audio, try another input - video 2 or 3.

If you have Cable/SAT TV as the source, what's going on with ITS audio settings?

You can always run that RCA cable pair from the source to theTV as a test for audio, too.

Connecting a wii to an Onkyo TX-SR607 7.2


I am experiencing issues like this although with a VCR connected with analog video. I added a BluRay DVD player and all of a sudden I lost my video upconversion from my VCR. I am going to try to reset the receiver to see if this fixes the problem. If not, I don't think it is the receiver issue, I think it may be the fact that enorder for video to pass through HDMI, allot of criteria needs to be met. Certain Handshakes need to happen, especially with the HDCP issues. Most likely I will connect a separate video cable to my Plasma and use a secondary input on the Plasma for the VCR signal. You may want to purchase the Component Video adapter for the wii system as this will provide you with at least 480p and your receiver should not have an issue passing the signal over the HDMI output. Good luck and give me an update.

Hooking Ipod to onkyo receiver


i pods use a different adapter for doing this. It plugs in the bottom using the big porton bottom and outputs the rca plugs this way. Ipods see too much resistance and protects the unit from burning out. check this out http://www.amazon.com/Logic3-iPod-RCA-Phono-Cable/dp/B00083D7WC

Can I connect an ipod to Onkyo tx-ds595?


I connect my iPod to my Onkyo using a stereo cable with mini-plug on one end and RCA L&R outs on the other. Just plug the RCA plugs into the AUX or TAPE IN on the Onkyo, and the stereo mini plug into the iPod and play as usual.
