harder to do but you can probably still use the display on the unit.
I am unfamiliar with the onkyos but am often setting up integras which are basically onkyos.
Find the setup button on the face of the receiver. It might be called different things but basically you will call up the settings and use the arrows - enter - and return to navigate in and out of the menu options.
Integras have that will allow you to;
configure connected speakers
- sub yes-no
- center yes - no
- rear surround yes-no
- speaker size small-large
input config (mapping audio, video connections to the input names)
- "Cbl/Sat" -> HDMI 1 - 4
- "BD/DVD" -> HDMI 1 - 4
You'll get the hang of it.
OR - do you have a small TV with a composite video connection?
I carry around a portable Coby battery powered monitor that has a composite video input for these types of problems. Composite video is always active.
You need a set of normal rca cables (red.yellow,white) and another single rca cable.. OPTION 1 :If you have a digital satellite receiver, Connect the 3 colour cables to the corresponding colour jacks on VIDEO 2 of your dvd player to corresponding colour jacks on the VIDEO OUT Of your digital satellite receiver...Connect the single stand alone rca cable to MONITOR OUT on your player to the VIDEO IN input of your tv..
OPTION 2 STRAIGHT TO TV: connect the 3 colour cables directly to the corresponding colour jacks on the SIDE of the tv...Connect the single stand alone rca cable to MONITOR OUT on your player to the VIDEO IN input of your tv..
OPTION 3 IF YOUR PLAYER HAS AN OPTICAL INPUT: if this is the case you can just connect a single optical cable to the optical ports on your player and tv and this will enable the sound from your tv to play through your dvd player as well
Sounds like you might be out of luck with the older 3-2-1 system. I am in the same boat, and am thinking I will only be able to utilize the "audio out" on the back of my Samsung LCD, and run that to the "aux in" on the Bose 3-2-1. This of course will not allow me to utilize the 3-2-1's DVD player, but by using a seperate DVD player, such as a Blu-Ray hooked to the LDC TV, the video will make it to the screen, and then the audio should make it through the Bose 3-2-1 speakers. Probably not the "best" solution, but one that I am going to attempt.
Change the input on your television to the corresponding input of your DVD player's video output.
ie; if your DVD player is hooked up to Video 2, you need to change your tv input to Video 2.
You may have simply not hooked up the video input, as well.
Try the settings setup and adjust the brightness, video format, or video black level. If you're using component connections then adjust the video output. You can scroll system setup through the remote control settings button.
Do you have your other components wired to the Onkyo. The monitor output isn't the best way to go. If your TV has component inputs or an HDMI you should run one of those instead, running a composite video cable will only get you analog at best.
If you are content with running analog you may need to go into the menu on your tv and select the type of video input you are using. The same goes for your receiver, switch the output to analog out.
That is because you didn't have the audio input connection right. 1. HDMI cable going from the Samsung tx72 output to Your Samsung TV HDMI input 2. 2. Non HD directv box Left and right audio output should be connected directly to the Samsung DVD receiver under Satellite input.Select"Satellite"for the sound from your Samsung tx72.You are good to go!

Most plasmas have set of RCA jacks beside or near each video input, be it a yellow composite jack, component (RGB) or VGA (15 pin monitor cable) there should be a red &white set of jacks beside each input. There should be a r&w set marked audio out.thats what you want goin' to the Hi-Fi a/v input. All this is on the assumption that the plasma has no speakers of it's own. if it does, you may need to go to set up menu and check audiosettings on the tv.Your best bet is to go HDVI between the DVD/Sound if you have the ability on both units. Better vid and audio that way.
I am assuming that you are using a surround sound system?If so on the back of the satellite receiver you will have RCA cables labled yellow ,red,white uuse an rca cable to run from the output on the back of the sat box to an rca input on the surround sound unit.the inputs should be labled on the back of the surround sound unit.once you have the sat box plugged in look for the output on the surround sound (rca cables) run one set of rca cables to the rca cable input of the Tv.on the original tv remote select the tv input that is the cable from the surround sound is plugged in to . make sure the surround sound unit input is selected to the input that the sat box is plugged into.this will give you surround sound from your satellite receiver,repeat with your DVD player plugging the DVD rca cable output to another empty input on the surround sound.to switch between the sat box (satellite TV) to DvD select another input on the surround sound unit.Try to correspond the units you are plugging into the surround sound to the correct name of the component on the back of the surround sound unit to avoid confussion.any questions,Im here to help.If this works rate me FIXYA! if it helps.GOOD LUCK!
