Question about Sony AIRSA20PK S-AIR iPod Dock and Digital Wireless speakers Docking Station

Open Question

I bought a Sony BDV-IS1000 Home Theater system with the rear wireless S-AIR system. I can NOT get music to play out of the rear speakers. I have paired the the receiver and amp about 100X. No joke. I read other sites that everyone is having the same problem. I purchased a Monster HDMI cable and it still does not work. I talked to Sony help for a couple hours and they are sending me some signal booster thing. Does anyone else have any ideas on how to fix this thing. I have the system on a cabinet above the TV and to pair I have the sub on top of the receiver. Its as close as they get to pair. THanks

SOURCE: S-Sir Sub Unit won't pair

I almost went out and bought a Sony HDMI cable but I tried something first and it worked me. I wrapped tightly the transceiver on the back of the main unit with aluminum foil and what do you know it fixed the problem. I guess since I was using a cheap HDMI cable the foil helped to shield out the interference. Sony HDMI cable $70.00 or aluminum foil 5 cents.  Let me know if this works for you as well.

SOURCE: I have an S-air wieless

The unit probably does this so that you don't have an impedance mismatch which would mess up the internal amplifier...most home stereos will do this to protect the amplifier...

SOURCE: my ipod wont play through

Please check the iPod connector on the Sony. If you can wiggle it, it is probably a bad connection. These model Sony radios have the connector directly soldered on a PCB and it tends to get loose after a while due to connecting/disconnecting the iPod. If it is loose, the connector needs to be re-soldered back into place.

I have had the following circumstances when there was a bad connection:
- iPod will not be charged
- iPod can not play music through the Sony
- iPod will play music through the Sony, but an iPhone won't

How can I fix the echo between my TV speakers and my dvd/blu ray player home theater speakers when watching a movie. Also, in the settings menu on the BDV E370 system do I have to select speakers only...

Easy, disable the TV speakers or turn its volume down.

Page 36 tells you how to sync the sound to the picture but you really shouldn't have the TV speakers competing (in stereo) with the Sony. (Page 56).

A) The TV speakers are probably inferior to teh Sony's
B) When you balanced the speakers during setup there was no 'with-the-TV-speakers-on' option. The image up front would suffer by adding an unaccounted for sound source.

    No sound from our Sony Wireless Home Cinema System

    Basic checks first. Have you checked they are connected properly? Maybe used a different cable to check whether the rear cables are faulty? You may just have turned your system to 2.1 surrououn sound by accident or be playing a format that only supports 2.1. Check that in the system menu under dec. mode that if it is set to AFD STD that you are playing a DVD which shows can support 5.1 on the back of its cover. Also try running the setup manually and choosing your speaker configuration. Hope this helps.
