No sound with cable tv- AM/FM works ok

House guests must have done something with the remote because I can no longer get my surround sound to play with what's on the screen

    the tuner setting produces sound, the DVT/CBL does not. Could the settings for the tv have been altered with the tv remote. Its on component 1 . Darnie

  • darnie Apr 05, 2008

    unfortunately my computer is not near my tv so I have to go into the other room and try something. I would consider myself not very intuitive with this stuff. The Visio remote has all sorts of settings when I push INPUT. "TV,AV1,AV2,Component 1,Component 2, RGB,HDMI1,HDMI2". It's on Component 1.The "menu" button brings up various controls for the video i.e. vol, balance etc.When the speaker buttons A and B are on are the buttons pushed in ????I would expect so . I have outside speakers that were working last night on the "B" setting but when I push the "A" there is no sound inside the room. : ( Helllppp !darnie

  • darnie Apr 05, 2008

    you've got to be more specific than "check the settings" what am I checking them for ? what should they be ? there is no signal issue from COX the TV sound is working. It's the tuner settings that are fouled up. I am looking at the tv remote . there is a line of buttons that are " TV AV Component HDMI Does that help at all? Darnie

  • darnie Apr 05, 2008

    I'm wondering if I just take the batteries out of the remotes -- will they remember the settings( whatever they are )) Darnie

  • darnie Apr 05, 2008

    none of these things work darnie

  • darnie Apr 05, 2008

    problem still exists. suggestions have not been helpful. I don't have a "K" button !! or I can't seem to find one. My set is on DTV/Cable. the ear phones are not plugged in. I have it on auto. Your assistance has not been helpful so far. Darnie

  • darnie Apr 06, 2008

    the speakers are not "busted" . If you read the comments I have made , I told you that the speakers work with the AM/FM setting but NOT with the DTV/CABLE setting. I would prefer a refund and not continue with this any longer. FDZ

In regards to what Psionics said,

double check the settings of your AV,channels setup and cable box.

im sure that your guests did not physically mess up your tv and speakers right? so just double check the input and output wirings for everything there on your tv.

one probable cause maybe the remote has a switch feature which you can control avr, tv, receivers a.k.a. universal. check also the sound setup for the tv as it may have been changed to stereo or mono and surround mix...

feel free to post what happens as we will try to use the answer for your problem to our database.

thanks for using fixya

    hey danie,



    thanks for that. now its clearer.



    yes, it could be from the tv since your using a component afterall.

    please do check also the settings on the component just to be sure.

    ok darnie, thanks for that.



    dont worry since you mentioned that your using component1. under component 1, use also mention that you are using A & B right. Aplatform sounds but B platform does not. try to check the balance for the audio.



    and in your remote, you can try to push just once but not "push-in" the A and B. just do try and hopefully something will happen.



    post back.

  • earl norman llanera
    earl norman llanera Apr 05, 2008

    ok darnie. sorry for that,



    what i mean is, try to check your remote, press component. then when youve already pressed component, something will appear on your tv right? from there, you can try to push the A & B. please post what happens after pressing .

  • earl norman llanera
    earl norman llanera Apr 05, 2008

    yup! try to change the batteries first.

    earl norman llanera Apr 06, 2008

    well darnie,



    since youve tried doing this and that. maybe the speakers of your A platform are busted.

First, check all the connections to the receiver.. Make sure everything is plugged in where it should be.. Also make sure, that when you are on TV/CABLE that the surround sound is selected and that "headphones" is not.. Also check any other modes that may have been changed, (IE digital input, 5.1 channel, etc...)

    Try setting the audio input jack select to "AUTO", also make sure the front speakers are selected by pressing (1)SPEAKERS on the front panel (you may have to press more than once)

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 06, 2008

    Also try setting “SUR. L/R SP” to “SML” or “LRG”. or Press (15)STRAIGHT on the front panel so that
    “STRAIGHT” disappears from the front panel
    display.

    Another thought, if you go into the Yamaha menu, and select "input menu" and then select I/O assignment, what is listed there?

How do I connect Samsung smart TV to a Yamaha receiver and get sound to come out of surround sound speakers?


Generally you will connect the Digital audio or optical audio cable from TV to the input of Receiver. Then using the remote control of Receiver you will program the source for digital audio or optical audio as TV. I am assuming the speakers on the receiver are already connected and working. All you do is then turn on TV and turn on Receiver and select TV on Receiver. The TV audio will play through the receiver. Make sure the TV sound is in Mute.

Pioneer 409 setting up for surround sound


I think there is a switching problem in the surround receiver. I would take the receiver to a qualified servicer. There is nothing user serviceable in the unit. Question .Why are you using optical output from ps3. I recommend you connect all you a/v devised to the tv. Then connect the opt out of tv to receiver. that way what ever you are viewing will send audio via opt out of tv to receiver. that way you do not have to switch input on receiver. Hope this helps.

How to set up to my tv


Ok...sorry it took me so long to get back to you...Check the back of you tv and look for RCA jacks for audio and video out...There should be a yellow one for video..a white one for audio left(L) and a red one for audio righ(R)...you may not need the yellow one...now look for any inputs on the rear panel of the surround sound system...They can be marked (AUX)...they will work..once all of these are located...you will need an RCA patch cable long enough to reach from the tv to the surround sound receiver...once done...turn on the tv and the surround sound.With the remote from the surround sound remote...switch between the input sources..maybe (AUX) until you hear your tv sound come through...then you adjust the sound as needed...Assuming the DVD is built in to the surround sound system...your DVD sound will come back when you play DVD's...All connections and cables are color coded so you should have no problem connecting everything....Good luck....let me know how it goes,,,,I hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

No play back from HDTV to threater system


Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.

STG DR510 no sound on left front channel


Can I assume the calibration procedure also didn't work for the Front left channel? (It's not a "surround" if it's in the front). Switch the receiver to Stereo mode to eliminate any DSP actions. Tune an FM station to eliminate any external device or cable issues. What do you hear from the two Front speakers?

OK? Select a DSP surround mode. Check all modes. What happens?

If the channel goes dead using some or all DSP modes there's probably something wrong with the processor. If they all work...

Isolate the source that exhibits the problem.

It was a bad left channel cable somewhere, wasn't it?
