    I just bought this piece of JUNK Insignia IS-HC040917 and it was NEW. I have had the same problems. No sound, and buttons work only when they want to. I read that it might be a system protect mode that is causing this sound issue but when I did a system reset it did not fix anything. I would not recomend this unit to anyone. I have seen numerous unit with the same problem. I feel like taking it to Best Buy and throwing it in the sales floor so it busts into several pieces. If that would save just one person from buying this junk it would be worth it. GOOD LUCK to everyone.

    Today I turned my stereo on and tuned it to the AUX setting and it play no sound even with it all the way up. This pisses me off because i just bought new speakers for my setup and no i can listen to them.

SOURCE: No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection

I have a high definition Polaroid tv which I bought in 2007. I have it connected to Dish tv. It worked fine at first. Now when I use the Dish tv remote, the television won't power up. The red light, which appears when the television is off turns blue when I attempt to turn the tv on, but the screen stays black. Why won't the television come on anymore?

How are you connecting the devices?

If you have used the cable box audio out (RCA) to the audio in (the ones just right of the digital coax audio out and the S-video out) on the home theater system, make sure that you have selected the correct Source. (Use the Source button on the front of the system to select AV1 or AV2. This toggles between AV1, AV2, tuner and DVD. It's the right-most button below the display screen. Alternatively, use the Tuner/Aux button (second from the bottom on the left) on the remote.) Note with this connection, the video source cable should go to the TV directly. Unless it is a composite video signal. Then connect the RCA video out (REC out). Make sure that the audio digital output is off. Press Setup/Exit (just above and to the right of the arrow keys) on the remote. Go to the audio menu (press the left arrow key twice) and press OK. The first item in the list is the digital output and should be blank unless you are feeding the audio to another system.

Next try a different audio cable and check that your speaker wires are all connected. Check that the cable box is getting power and a signal from the provider. Connect it to the TV to recheck. If it isn't, make sure that the cables didn't come loose on the box while you were making the connections to add the system.

If you have a newer cable box with HDMI or digital audio out, these most be connected differently. A digital to analog audio converter will work with the second option. For an HDMI connection, connect that cable to the TV, then connect the TVs analog audio out to the NS-H2002. Then go to the Audio menu of the TV and turn on the external audio and turn off the internal speakers. (If your TV has a headphone jack as the only analog out, then this step may not be needed. However, you'll need a 3.5 mm to RCA stereo cable or adapter.)

Check if the audio works with another source (like a DVD). If another external source works, then it's the cable box or the connections to it. If no external sources work but you can here a DVD play, it's probably the input jacks on the system.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about the cable box outputs and the TVs inputs and outputs if you need additional assistance.

ONKYO TX-SR608 I need to have my volumne up over 40 to get any sound and around 55 to listen to my home theatre on 5.1 . Does this sound normal? Also, how can I view the volumne when using Zone 2? I...


Yes it is normal, the 608 is a THX certified receiver, so it goes by THX reference levels.

In theory once you have run the Audyssey auto-setup with the included mic the proper reference level for watching movies will be 82 if the volume number scale is set absolute or 0dB of it is set to THX relative. At this setting the volume should be the same as watching that movie at the theater. I have mine set to power-on at a level of -30dB which corresponds to level 52 on the scale you have it set to. This is a comfortable lowish level, but I turn it up to at least -10dB AKA 72 when watching movies.

How do i get surrond sound for just tv shows


surround sound only comes over the digital out on back of the TV or better, on back of the Verizon boc, itll be a orange RCA jack I believe or the fiber TOS link, These go into your receiver into the same style jack. Digital in may only be associated with the DVD input. if your tv has a HDMI input, you can use the HDMI cable from the convertor box to the TV and then the digital out on the TV into the receiver, but I like the digital out to go straight to the receiver from the convertor box. HDMI tpo the TV will allow you to watch TV on the internal speakers if you dont want to use the amp.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection


HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
