Onkyo TX-DS777 digital inputs not working

When I connect my DVD optical or COAX digital output to the digital inputs and assign DVD audio to the correct input, there is no sound. The analog inputs go mute and the display indicates receiving PCM 48KHz signal and I tried all digital modes. Onkyo support suggested resetting by pressing VID1 and SPKR A simultaneously. I got the CLEAR message and shutdown they said I would and re-configured it, but it made no difference. It looks like a bad DAC. Any suggestions? Can the DAC be replaced or otherwise tested?

SOURCE: new home theater setup- no signal at tv using onkyo tx=sr605

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

SOURCE: No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

Go to settings on PS3 and sound settings and set them to HDMI.

If the above did not work, try a auto reset, with unit connected. Hold the PS3 power button down and wait until you hear 2 beeps. The PS3 will automatically search your input/output channels.

My Onkyo TX-SR506 plays cable and CD inputs to zone 2, but DVD won't play. Everything is connected according to the manual and I assigned zone 2 output correctly. What gives?


How are your cable and cd inputs hooked up? Analog connections? Alot of receivers cannot send an audio signal from hdmi inputs to zone 2.

I have an Onkyo tx ds777 model and I can only get sound to come out of the front speakers on direct mode. Stereo or any type of surround sound produces no sound at all. I have tried with my mp3 player...


You don't say if all speakers work with the setup procedure. THAT is step 1. Then try FM as it doesn't require any cabling. Then move on to more complex sources like external analog, then digital (and make sure to assign the ports).

I try to connect a satelite to optical audio input for a digital radio signal. This doesn't work. Is it only possible to use a coax input cable for the radio signal?


The nature of whatever is on the upstream side of a digital signal is invisible to the device at the other end of the cable. Bits is bits, as we say. The undefined 'satelite to optical audio' device is probably at fault or not set right. PLUS, on theOnkyo you have to assign digital inputs. Read the manuals.

I have the onkyo tx sr502, onkyo dv sp402e with the speakers..etc.. i'm trying to set up the whole thing to a normal television. that is, what cables go from what components, out/inputs..etc..and which...


Hi troy my names Josh i would be glad to be able to help you with your setup. First things first some people have a preference with they way they like things and for one do myself. I set up and intstalled my home theatre. I have receiver much like yours. On the back of your reciever you should have multiple inputs of coarse some for sound some for video. Your sound inputs would include digital optical, digital coax, standard analog which of coarse is the red and white RCA inputs and then a multi in which i doubt you have. So lets start simple If you have satalite or some form of cable i would assume you have your reciever box feeding a signal to your tv and the same for your DVD. I would recommend for your sat. that you connect your picture and sound strait to the tv rather it be component video or s video or standard video source or connect then for your sound strait analog to your tv thats just Red and White RCAs which will give you your sound to your tv. Repeat the same for your DVD depending on the kind of inputs and number of inputs you have on your TV. Now for the sound to your reciever. I ran digital sound from both my DVD and my Satilite to the reciever which means on the back of your recievers providing you have a similar configuration you would look for a plug on your dvd player that says optical thats your digital to run sound to your onkyo and the same for your sat or cable if you have a box look for either digital optical or a single digtal coax output that will also be ran to the onkyo for sound. You should only have two cables running to the onkyo one fiber optic from your dvd to the onkyo and one digital coax or fiber optic to your onkyo depending on the number of those inputs you have on the back of the onkyo you can run it how ever you want.

I have a Denon AVR2307 to which is connected,via optical audio and component video a DVD player/recorder and this works well but in order to take some of the work off the player part I've bought another...


HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.

You don't.

Use whatever digital or analog audio outputs and S-video or composite video outputs that are provided on your source devices.

Onkyo TX SR 606 -- Connection Issues with Cable/ Dig Coax Audio


1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]

2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".

No sound from optical or coax digital inputs


You have to use the system setting using the remote and turn on the inputs you want to use. Hope this helps.
