Just like most contemporary AV Receivers, there is no built-in Phono preamp in this unit so if your TT doesn't have one internally, you'll need to get an aftermarket Phono Preamp somewhere to PREamplify and frequency-balance the minute Phono Cartridge output to a useable Line Level you can send to any available Line Level input on the Receiver (CD, Aux, whatever) .

How to hookup a sony turntable to a Onkyo TX-sr605

I have managed to find a manual for your Onkyo machine. It is in pdf format so can be saved to your computer for future reference. It can be obtained here:
and by using the Adobe Acrobat Reader search function with "turntable" as the search term, I found diagrams on page 36 which clearly showed how to connect various types of turntable.
Hope this helps

Can I conect an Onkyo M-501 power amp to an Onkyo A/V TS xr601 receiver?

You will not be able to connect the M501 To the TXSR 601 AVR because the AVR does not have any pre out puts except subout.

How do I program hdmi imputs on a txsr 506

You don't program hdmi. The manual describes all that stuff and the unnamed product at the other end of the cable plays a part, too.

I want to connect a turntable to my Onkyo TXSR601 but it dosnt have a phono connection. Where should I connect into for best results?

Your Onkyo has no suitable input for turntable. I suggest you to use this or this preapmlifie, connect the turntable at the preamplifier input andthe preamplifier output at any available input at the Onkyo (cd, tapein or video in, at the red and white connectors). Of course you can buy any phono preamplifier from any shop and connect it with the same procedure. The models before is just a sugestion.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I have my television, cable box, and apple tv running into the tuner with HDMI cables with the tuner hooked up to surround speakers for the sound. I'm having trouble separating the audio and video. I would...

The only way you can do this is by connecting the Cable Set Top box HDMI directly to the TV HDMI input and switching the TXSR508 to Apple TV. And if you want to hear the Cable sound through the TXSR, connect analogue audio out of the TV to one of the analogue inputs of the TXSR ( Aux or Video In ). You may not get the Cable TV's Dolby 5.1 sound but you will get stereo sound which on using the TXSR's dsp setting ( ProLogic II ) can be made into 5.1.

Iv connected a set of citronic pd1 dj turntable to aux on my onkyo av amp and the sound is really low volume is set at max.if this is because iv got the wrong kind of amp what connections would i need on...

Turntables that have magnetic cartridges must be connected to an amp that has a "phono" connection otherwise the sound will be too low. I have an Onkyo and that doesn't have one, so I suspect yours doesn't. So what you need is what's called a cartridge pre-amp. This will amplify the signal to the Onkyo. Search online, try Amazon for one.

Selecting phono preamp for Onkyo HT-R510

The magnetic cartridge preamp should work with the turntable, as presumably it will have a magnetic cartridge in it. The only reason that the amp states "magnetic" is that some very old turntables have ceramic cartridges which should not be connected to that terminal. Even if the turntable had a "ceramic" it could be replaced with a magnetic one!

Connect Onkyo CP-1020F Turntable to Theater System?

Yes. It needs to have Line Level (slightly amplified or pre-amp'd) before your home theatre system can 'hear' it.
