Re: Help fixing a sound problem with our receiver
You should be able to find all the instructions for these connections in your products owners manuals. The procedure should be straight forward. all the connections to the receiver should be input and output connections. The Receiver is basically just a switch box and amplifier with extras.You must make sure you know which input and output you are using for each of the components. You must have all the remote controls set-up to work with each other. The receiver is the master switch. From it you will control all input sources to the various output sources. Here is a possible set-up . Television output sound and video to the first input/ output section of the receiver. from here you can use the first audio/video output to your dvd/vcr input. This will allow you to record the television programs video and audio to your recording media.The audio/video output of the dvd/vcr will be connected to the second input /output of the receiver.With the second input you can view all the dvd/vcr materials on the television while listening to the sound through your receiver.The master output of the receiver's audio/video output is connected to the television input circuit. This will allow viewing and sound from all the units connected to the receiver. The receiver sound system will receive sound from all the input units as long as the connection are right and the input/out selections from the remotes controls are correct. That is the reason the owners manuals are so important for this purpose. They give these instructions and diagrams to show you the correct procedures for setting them up.They also give you information about customer support either with website help or a call in line for technical assistance.I hope this helps you with your problem.

Hi, If I understand correctly form your question,you can not hook them unless your TV has 5.1 surround sound amplifier built in...Does it ? I doubt so.. in order to get a surround sound from your TV you need a 5.1 /7.1 DVD/Receiver and you can connect your TV to listen it thru Receiver ..Here is how you can do it.. ** connect "Audio Output " as either :"2xRCA jacks"or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI "connector " of your TV , ** to "RCA input jacks " or "Optic Cable input" or if you have "HDMI input" of your DVD/ Receiver ** than just switch to
respective mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
There you go..your Tv sound are on the DVD/receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND. By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Try unplugging all of the equipment for 30 minute to an hour, and see if this fixes it, otherwise, it sounds like the flickering power may have caused a surge in the circuitry of the equipment, causing it to short circuit the digital tuner in the TV.
1. Connect cable to cable HD DVR box, connect video out of cable box to Sony receiver TV video in, connect audio L and R out of cable box to Sony receiver TV audio in and connect TV out of receiver to video in of Panasonic projector
2. Connect Audio and Video out of DVD player respectively to DVD in of receiver. Good Luck :)
I would run toslink optical if you have it, if not then use coaxial digital from your TV output to receiver input. this will handle all the sound that goes with watching TV from any source(dvd player, cable, etc)
I would run the DVD player into the TV hopefully with HDMI cable so you get the surround sound.
the television can split off the audio information from the HDMI and send it back through the toslink cable to the receiver which decodes it into surround sound for your speakers.
Including the comment below it.
Also troll here;
Then join, and post your issue. Guaranteed someone there can help.
TV is HD correct? Use the Y/CB/CR from the Sat to the TV. Use the Digital optical cable for sound from the sat to the receiver. Use the s-video from the dvd player to the tv and the l/r to the receiver for sound. I would suggest upgrading to another set of Y/CB/CR cables to connect your dvd to the TV and benefit from better picture. Also, buy another optical cable for dvd sound (so you can enjoy surround sound). Your receiver has two optical inputs so youre covered there.
To get the dvd working hook up to amp with a optical or coax lead to your amp digital in,set out put on dvd to give 5.1 sound,next put a phono cable from cable box to tv input on amp or sat input,now put phono cables from tv audio out to tv or other free input on amp.Set sound to prologic2 and you should have surround sound for all.
hope this helps.
By coaxial, do you mean the composite (yellow)?
Either way you have to use the same style no matter what the cable. I mean, if you have s-video's IN to the reciever then you need S-videos OUT to the TV. ....Component IN to the reciever? then Component OUT to the TV. And so on. You cant have composite cords going into the reciever and use a component cord out to the TV (with the exception of a few models).
