Hope this helps

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.

I am having trouble getting my surround sound to output my foxtel dvd using standard av cords is there anywhere i can get a diagram


Hi, I'm not too sure what you're asking - do you mean that sound is only coming out of 2 of the speakers? A lot of foxtel shows aren't meant for surround sound - usually only box office movies.

For best results, use a digital optical cable (not the one with a round end, one that's fibre optic, say that to a store and they will give you the right one) - connect to the optical/toslink input of your surround sound system.

You may have to turn on "dolby pro logic 2" to get all speakers working on some shows. Or you can try just plugging in the 2 red/white stereo cables into the amp, and using pro logic that way. Pro logic creates surround sound, even when your show is only stereo.

I guess that will do it .


Have a nice day.

I have the onkyo tx sr502, onkyo dv sp402e with the speakers..etc.. i'm trying to set up the whole thing to a normal television. that is, what cables go from what components, out/inputs..etc..and which...


Hi troy my names Josh i would be glad to be able to help you with your setup. First things first some people have a preference with they way they like things and for one do myself. I set up and intstalled my home theatre. I have receiver much like yours. On the back of your reciever you should have multiple inputs of coarse some for sound some for video. Your sound inputs would include digital optical, digital coax, standard analog which of coarse is the red and white RCA inputs and then a multi in which i doubt you have. So lets start simple If you have satalite or some form of cable i would assume you have your reciever box feeding a signal to your tv and the same for your DVD. I would recommend for your sat. that you connect your picture and sound strait to the tv rather it be component video or s video or standard video source or connect then for your sound strait analog to your tv thats just Red and White RCAs which will give you your sound to your tv. Repeat the same for your DVD depending on the kind of inputs and number of inputs you have on your TV. Now for the sound to your reciever. I ran digital sound from both my DVD and my Satilite to the reciever which means on the back of your recievers providing you have a similar configuration you would look for a plug on your dvd player that says optical thats your digital to run sound to your onkyo and the same for your sat or cable if you have a box look for either digital optical or a single digtal coax output that will also be ran to the onkyo for sound. You should only have two cables running to the onkyo one fiber optic from your dvd to the onkyo and one digital coax or fiber optic to your onkyo depending on the number of those inputs you have on the back of the onkyo you can run it how ever you want.

Without HDMI on the 3200, what's the best way to connect a Panasonic plasma TCP42S1 to get the best sound


Connect the digital audio output from TV to digital audio on receiver. It could be in different formats: 1 single RCA cable, optical, etc, Find the matching input on your receiver and voila!
For your picture, lacking HDMI, use COMPONENT cables: WHITE, BLUE and GREEN, I believe, for best results.
Good luck!

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

If you have HDMI on your TV use the component video / digital optical from DVD changer to the receiver. Your receiver will upconvert the picture. The sound will also be sent via the HDMI. If you don't have HDMI still use the digital optical or the digital coax connections. The next best thing to HDMI would be using the component connections (RED, GREEN, BLUE) Good Luck
