I have an AVR-688 and I can't get any inputs (dvd,tv,radio) to come out of the speakers. I did the mic set up and the speakers work. I have opt 1 connected to my dvd player, opt 2 connected to my tv, and component video cables from my dvd to my tv.
I went to "2.In" in the set up and set opt 1 dvd, opt 2 tv. Still nothing. What am I missing here?

Re: no sound output
Sounds like you sorta know what your doing but the most obvious answer is the source and output (selection) dont match. Double check your mute button and all the obvious things first, make sure your connections are to Zone1 inputs as well. None of those are it? Do you get sound from the Radio? Try unhooking all inputs (video also) and hooking up just one at a time till you get it right.

Your HK DVD probably has outputs for left and right audio and video (possibly color coded red, white, and yellow). These should connect to the corresponding DVD (or VCR) inputs on the rear of your AVR. When you play a DVD with your AVR set for DVD/VCR input, you should hear all of the stereo audio (there are no "missing tracks"). Next, review your speaker connections. They should be connected + terminal to the corresponding + terminal on the AVR, etc. One or more speakers may be connected backwards. If your AVR has speaker system A B provisions, be sure that speaker (system) A only has been selected.
foxtile, How funny my son just did the same yesterday!
Make sure that the speaker selectors and the input modes are set correctly. He must have hit both buttons at the same time which turned off the speaker outputs and changed the input mode to a setup we were not using.
Make sure that the volume is not muted or too low on the TV...the TV volume output to your receiver will be performing the function of a pre-amp to your receiver. Then select the appropriate input on the receiver that you have the TV audio connected to.
Check to make sure you have the TV input connections in the correct
slots. Sometimes there are two possible inputs for a TV. One being a monitor 1 and the other a monitor 2. There could also be speaker select buttons on the receiver that correspond to each.
Also check the TV audio settings to make sure the output connections are sending an audio signal, also known as external speakers.
After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird
Check your blu-ray connection. Is the HDMI cable going from the player to the receiver, then another HDMI cable going from the receiver to the television? What about your TV input? Is there a cable going from the cable converter box to the receiver's input?
If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an
HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the
PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care
of the video side.
Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3
menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the
Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to
setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to
play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is
setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you
have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.
the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv
