Reciever overloads/recently installed blu-ray player

I recently moved and set up my 5.1 surround system and replaced my DVD with a Blu-ray using the same optical output cable. I recieve an overload error followed by shutdown. Turning the sub off did not help, but turning the input attenuator on seemed to temporarily solve the issue. If kept at low volumes the receiver does not overload. My guess is the output on the sony blu-ray is too much, or a short in the speaker wiring? All speakers seem to work fine with no static.

    I just wanted to update what I found to be my problem. I thought I posted this before, but my problem was a short between touching wires on one of the satellite speakers. One had fallen and when I put it back up I had twisted the wire, thus pulling it out some and shorting the system. No fault until the power was increased.

    *UPDATE* Just as I had suspected the culprit was a short in one of the speakers. I had a satellite speaker fall off its mount, and it was twisted when put back up, thus pulling the wire out some and causing the short and resulting fault.

Overloads are generally heat- or current-related. Digital inputs don't have adjustments (all 1's is as high as they go), so I doubt there is any relationship between the Blu-Ray's optical cable and the overload.

You've said what doesn't affect the problem, so what's that leave? I'd look at shorts or mismatches between the amps and the speakers.

    Kevin, you really should just open a separate request insead of tagging into one that's over a year old on a totally unrelated product. Only the original poster and myself are alerted to view your comment.

We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?


component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

That shouldn't happen, what kind of cable are you using? you should try an hdmi cable. its electronic so it either works or doesn't and there shouldn't be any lag at all.

I have bouight a samsung home theatre system that comes complete wiht a DVd player - i also have a samsung blu ray player - naturally ithought they would be compatible!! how wrong i was!! the connections...


You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


If the amplifier is not receiving a surround sound signal, you will get nothing from the rear speakers and probably nothing from the front centre. Play a dvd in dolby surround and it will work.

Distorted audio on my surround sound


If it does it with just the one disc it is probably the file that you burned. Does the file sound ok on the computer? Sometimes files that are downloaded have bad audio tracks and I have seen cases where the encoding software that you are using messes up the file when it is modifying the file.
Try another DVD or Blu-Ray disc and see if it still distorts. If it does then it may be a setting in the player or in the receiver.

Cheers

How do i connect my subwoofer to my sony dvd player to get the great surround sound?


there will be a subwoofer pre out( needs to be amplified) or if it don't have subwoofer pre out you will have to send the audio out to a stereo reciever that has inputs for the optical ( digital audio signal )( to a stereo or surround system that has 5.1 or higher has full surround sound ) and of course L and R audio inputs and the subwoofer pre out , then the subwoofer pre out will have to be amplified by a reciever , subwoofer amp , surround sound , ect

Upgrading dvd to blu-ray - how can I use my existing surround sound speakers?


Unfortunately because your existing system does not have the option of connecting an external source, such as another DVD player, the only option you have is to reuse your existing speakers and purchase another amplifier. Trying to patch another DVD into your existing unit would require a bit of technical expertise which would be more trouble than it is worth. The all-in one concept is convenient but very limiting in terms of expansion.
