SOURCE: i have tv hooked up

Is the unidentified TV a sound source from the SX-315's perspective? Is it's audio output enabled whene the TV volume is down? Would the Cable Box be a BETTER source?

Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D308 reciever and I have... no idea how to hook it up to my big TV (bought receiver used). Do I need the red/white cords? Do I need other cables? HELP! Wanting to hook up to big...


What your unidentified TV >>requires<< is the BEST Video from every video source. That would be the DVD, SAT Box. It probably has multiple high-end video inputs, right?

What your receiver needs is at least a basic composite video connection to the TV so you can set it up and manage it.

A web search for "Pioneer VSX-D308 manual" will find the manual.

ALL of the BEST Audio should go directly to the Pioneer. That includes the SAT and DVD player.

Your TV can exist just fine with basic audio from the video sources. And you could still watch it/them without the Pioneer turned of if you want.

I can't find the exact manual for free anywhere but if you download something similar like http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-D409-Receivers-manual/id/385ci977/t/2/ it should give you the basic guidance you need.

I recommend

Do some web searching for what the cables are for. It's all basic and standard.

No sound of voice, only surround sound


If you do not have a center channel speaker connected, then in the reciever setup menu for speakers, there should be a selection for center channel that says something like either yes or no. I'm guessing it says yes. Then you need to select "no" so that the circuitry will direct sound specified for the center channel to be reproduced through your front speakers.

Pioneer VSX 818V No Sound


First thing to check is the Speaker Select Switch. It will say, "A" "AB" or "Both" it will be displayed on the LCD screen as well. Second if that's ok, Check the "Direct" switch. If it's on, turn it off. Generally if it's on, you will see a blue light if it's on (most receiver's)

If you still have No audio, hook up your DVD to the "Direct" input and turn "Direct" on. If you have audio then. The DSP chip is probably bad and you should take it to a shop and have them bench it first to confirm. Hope this helps

Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman
