Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver

1 Answer

No analog audio out for digital inputs

I bought a wireless headphone transmitter and hooked it to the "audio out" connection. I get audio on the tuner, but not for the two digital inputs that I have hooked up. Does this receiver just not furnish audio out on a digital input? If so, the only other option is the headphone output.
Thanks.

The easiest way is to connect to one of the tape out jacks. These should be live for all inputs.

Manual says only audio inputs are output to the rca audio outputs. How can I get digital audio inputs to output to where I can connect wireless speakers.


Does your receiver have a set of rca connectors labeled "tape out" or "tape monitor" those might work as a better output. As far as the delay goes, if you have your tv hooked up via hdmi, then you will not be able to get the audio to sync up with it. the tv takes longer to decode and display an hdmi output than your receiver does for an audio input.

How do i connect marantz rs2252. To tv


Do you have an audio out or headphone jack on the TV? If not you'll need a digital TV tuner converter box that does. If you remember, these are the "digital conversion" boxes the government provided when the USA switched from analog to digital TV. They sell for $50 - $60, have a input for TV system (antenna, cable, etc) and analog outputs that will connect to your Marantz via the "Aux" input. Purchase shielded "RCA male to RCA male" connection cables at Radio Shack, connect "Audio Out" from converter box to "Aux In" on Marantz and you're done.

The audio jacks on the TV are most likely inputs, not outputs. They're meant to take the audio signal from something like a DVD player, along with the video input on another jack, so you can play it through the TV. There isn't an audio signal coming out from those jacks, and if you connect your headphone transmitter to them all you'll get is silence. Almost all sets now have at least one set of AV inputs, but most don't give you outputs. The manufacturers figure the TV is just a display device, and not a signal source.

Unfortunately, there isn't any easy way to connect your wireless headphones if the TV doesn't have audio output jacks or a headphone connector. If you're comfortable with soldering and willing to do some modification to your TV, it's possible to add a headphone jack. Most people don't want to start tinkering with their sets, though.

If you're using your TV on a cable system without a converter box and the cable hooks right to the set, you're out of luck unless you're willing to add a headphone jack as I mentioned before. But if you have a cable converter box, or you're using a satellite receiver or other set-top box, you can use your headphones with those. These devices typically have direct audio and video outputs available on the rear panel, and you can use that audio output to feed the headphone transmitter.

What most people do these days is use a home theater receiver along with the TV. All sources (the cable box, DVD player, video game console, audio CD player, etc.) connect to the receiver, and the receiver's audio and video outputs go to the corresponding input jacks on the TV. This way, the TV is just the end of the line. The receiver also would provide an output for the wireless headphone transmitter. This system offers some advantages. You'll be able to connect the proper speakers to enjoy surround sound when not using headphones. And you'll be able to use your wireless headphones with the tuner and audio sources like music CDs when not watching TV.

Can u hook it to a computer for sound


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

More-advanced sound cards would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

A digital-capable receiver would accept 44.1 kHz for normal CD or DTS sources. Some diddling with the output sampling frequency might allow digital multichannel audio to be decoded by the receiver.

Can i hook more than 1 digital audio piece of equipment? to onkyo tx-ds838


Unfortunately, my copy of the manual is an optical scan so I can't actually read the legends very well for the rear panel connections or the OSD's...

Yes, use the Coaxial Digital Input, the Optical Digital Input and the AC3-RF (upper right). That's three (* or more).

I don't get what they're saying in the note on Page 13 about the three digital connectors and leaving the analog cables attached vis-a-vis multiroom and headphone use.

Page 29 discusses selecting the digital INPUT MODE. I imagine you could have three devices connected digitally and select between them using this control, but the displayed function labels may not jibe with what they really are.

* Few people seem to be aware that coaxial digital inputs or outputs can be physically shared because they're simply old -fashioned RCA cables. The only caveat is that you should only have power turned on for the input device you want to use or you'll get digital collisions. PLUS, you can join cables to make longer ones. Get some RCA splitters and you can run a couple of digital devices to any single Coaxial Digital Input (Upper right rear). I run mine this way.

Can I connect wireless headphones to one of the outputs on my receiver (like tape out) instead of the headphone jack in front?


Sure but I dont know if it will down convert the digital audio out of the analog audio Tape out. For instance, if you are using HDMI from your cable box it might not be able to go through the tape out portion. You may also have to run left and right analog audio cables from each source and set the unit to auto input.
Hope I helped!

Zone2 problem


I had the same problem.  Yamaha's web-site states that the zone 2 and zone 3 can only be driven from analog inputs (RCA stereo input jacks), not digital inputs.  If your media center is hooked up with digital connections (such as HDMI), it will not feed the zone 2 or 3.  Yamaha's web-site suggest hooking up both analog and digital feeds.  It claims that the digital will drive the main zone and the analog will drive the other zones.
Good luck...
