RCA PROFESSIONAL SERIES STAV 3880 Digital Optic input

I have a new TV and have hooked up my Direct TV reciever via optical digital input 1 with no problem. Now I'm hooking up the TV to Optical Digital input 2 and I can't get it to play sound from the TV. What have I done wrong?

RCA Stav-3880 turn stereo on goes to full volumn


Take the batteries out of the remote control, then apply a piece of black tape over the IR sensor, Unplug the power, wait a few minutes, now power the unit back up, does the unit still have the same volume high symptom? If so, remove the tape and see if the unit responds to any other commands(other than volume) from the front panel. If it responds to the panel controls, the processor is most likely good. very seldom is the IR transistor bad, if it is no input command will work.

I just purchased a Sony flat screen tv and need advice on what wires I need to connect my Denon AVR-3300 to it or to the dish cable box? My remote has these options on the remote to listen in...


Your reciever has three digital optical inputs so, what it comes down to is how many thing do you want to hook up and what input/otput do you have on your TV. Best case scenario would be to hook your cable box directly to your TV Via HDMI out, if you have HD, on your cable box to Sat/cable input on your TV. Next best would be using componenet cables for video and digital optical for audio. Last would be RCA(yellow, white and red, from Cable box to TV input. Then, you would connect your TV to receiver via(best) digital optical, or RCA. You can try to patch the video through the reciever using component or RCA to TV/DBS on receiver then out to TV but. alot of times you will lose the video in the transfer and it uses more cables, thus more margiin for error. You would set your TV menu to cable/sat and your reciever to which ever input you choose.

When watching cable tv we are not getting any sound from the speakers. We do get sound from all the speakers when watching a dvd or listen to the stereo. I have a Yamaha HTR 5660 receiver. All the cables...


Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

How do i hook it up to a lcd tv with one digital output?


All of your vidoe components should run directly to TV via HDMI, component, etc., as input. Anything you hook to Tv can be watched using TV's menu, ie: TV, DVR< etc., of course, if you use component cables, you have to provide audio with other means. All you have to do then, is, run your digital optical out from TV to reciever. Use your TV menu to watch and you will only use the one input to reciever. Make sure you go through the recievers menu to make sure you have chosen the proper channel for listening, Vid2, Aux, etc.

How to hookup all the units ,cable, vcr, dvd , tv.,and receiver


It all depends on what you have for inputs on TV really. Any video components should be hooked directly to TV via, best, HDMI, next, component. Component has great video but doesn't carry audio, for audio, you would have to use separate cable(s), digital optical being best. The best scenario would be to run cable/sat, dvr, etc, to TV then hook TV audio out, via digital optical, to reciever. You would use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, would have one audio out to reciever. Some, if not most recievers have video pass through but, it's not the best route and, you have more connections and more margin for error.

Denon AVR 1609 7.1 Channel Receiver turns on but i get no sound thru the optical to the tv. what could be wrong?


If you have your video equiptment hooked to your reciever input, then, out to TV, This isn't the best way to go. Of course it depends on what you have for input and output on your TV but, the ideal way to hook your system would be to hook all video equiptment to TV, ie:, cable/sat box, DVD player, etc., to TV via, HDMI, Composite, RCA, etc., then run your digital optical out from TV to reciever. You would use the TV's menu to choose what you watch and would only have one input(audio) to reciever. Some recievers are set up to transfer video, but, it uses more cables, creates more connections, and more room for error.

How to hook it up to new emerson tv without s-viedo connection


Hi,here is my solution...
If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..
----------------------------
If you want to display your DVD on the TV,than do everything visa versa..as;
**connect "Video Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your Receiver
** to "Video input " or "Optic Cable input"
of your TV and make a selection corresponding input of TV
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

I have a 42 in LG HDTV and a dish satellite and a LG surround sound system how to I hook these up to hear sound while watching the sat


See if your satellite receiver has a digital out socket in the back ( optic / coaxial ). If so get yourself an optic/coaxial cable and link the TV out to your LG Home Theaters optic/coaxial In.
Now if your Satellite receiver does not have a digital out for sound you will have to connect the TV's audio out to the LG Home Theater Systems Aux / SAT / CBL input using appropriate cables .Either 3.5mm phono to 2RCA or 2 RCA to 2 RCA cables.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.
