Sounds like you're connected to a cable, satellite, or DVR box ("set top box"). Many times these units have their own volume controls.

Try reducing the volume of the set top box to 80% or below, preferrably somewhere between 50% and 70%. When the volume is set too high, the background noise will be amplified as well, which then gets amplified by your receiver and becomes audible.

You will need to adjust the volume level of your receiver to compensate for the lower input level, and keep in mind that some channels may have more noise than others. It'll be a balance between having all your input sources are relatively-similar input levels (so you don't have to adjust the volume a lot when switching between sources) and how much noise you can hear or ignore.

Connect tv to surround sound system


Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)

If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.

Hi, I have a new one sharp Aquos lc-32d47ua i dont know how to use the usb i read the manual but it talk about a upgrade to the tv i just want to watch movies and music from my usb how can i do...


As you've found from looking at the manual, the USB connector on the TV is only for installing software updates to the set. It's not a source input that you can send movies and music over, so the correct answer to your question is "you can't". At least not directly.

While you can't plug a USB device containing programs directly into the TV, you can use a computer as a program source. The TV has a VGA connector (Input 4) for video from the computer, and an audio input jack for connecting the computer's headphone output. So what you could do is plug your USB device into a laptop computer and connect the computer to the TV. The computer would be doing the actual playback of the programming on the USB device (using Windows Media Player, Winamp or your other player of choice), while the TV acts only as a display device. The manual explains how to select the computer input and adjust the TV resolution.

Hi there, i have a panasonic sa-ht520 cinema system, when watching tv through the system every 5 minutes or so it blares out a loud hissing noise. This gets more frequent the longer i leave it.. however...


Hello,
Since you changed the cables twice and its still doing it, this leads me to belive that your problem is at your source which you call tv.(cable box or sat?) Here are a couple things you can try.
1-Connect a different source to that input and see if it still make the noise.
2-connect it digital from the source to the receiver as opposed to analog to see if its the analog output from the source.
3-connect the tv source to a different input on the receiver.
Hopefully this helps
Good luck

I can't get a sound from my yamaha rx-v367. my tv is lg le5310


Last update: 05/02/2008
Connect the audio outputs jacks from the TV to any available audio input terminals on the Yamaha receiver, other than the phono input. You can use any analog audio Left (White) and Right (Red) inputs on your receiver such as the DTV/CBL, SAT or VCR input. There are no special settings needed on the receiver, other than selecting the correct input. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on the TV. Consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output audio to an external source. If youre TV has a digital output (Optical or Coaxial) it can also be run to one of the digital inputs on the Yamaha receiver, such as DTV/CBL or DVD. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on your TV. As always, consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output digital audio to an external source.

NOTE: When the source of the audio signal is coming from an HDMI device connected to the TV, the TV may not output in 5.1 surround sound.

Help trying to run the tv through the stereo where do the leads go from the tv into the stereo


Specifics regarding equipment would be helpful since we have no idea what connectors are available on either end of this problem.

TV's are usually not the root source of anything and are not known as hi-fi audio sources but almost everything THEY hear comes from one (cable/sat/dvd/Blueray).

Generally, I would get the BEST digital audio from the original TV-related source and bring it into the receiver/control amplifier for processing if possible. Failing that, use analog RCA cabling from the source to any available Line Level input but be mindful that multichannel info is only carried digitally.

If theTV does have an RCA analog audio input you could also run your cable/sat box analog audio output into it for lo-fi TV listening (news, weather) through the TV speakers, if it has them.

How do i hook up my tv sound to play through my stereo speakers


The following are the best I can do without specifics re: your TV and other TV-related equipment.

Since a TV without an antenna is rarely the source of any programming it is best to feed the receiver the best sound available from the device where it originates - cable / sat / DVD / BluRay / games. Your receiver probably has plenty of inputs to accomodate al of these. I also run the video directly to my TV, which has several video inputs, from each source because IT deserves the best unadulterated video.

If you have a cable box and want the best sound, get it directly and digitally from the cable box and run it to the receiver. Then leave the TV's speakers off for critical viewing with good sound.

Hi ,Marantz SR7200 , i am getting an audible hiss on phono inputs and digital optical inputs . If a connect something to the front phono inputs , however there is no hiss , any ideas ? Thanks in advance .


if your hooking up a phono input lead to a digital input lead it won't work analog and digital totally different setup. when you connect the leads up it just kills the input amp so there is no noise.

Is it the same amount of hiss on all channels? If not, it might be coming from the input source itself and not the receiver.

Static or hiss noise


I have the same problem. Only one speaker is hissing and only for analog sources. No hissing when I select Coax.
