Based on the description provided, you seem to be on the right track.

Be sure to select the appropriate "source" on the receiver using the remote (or front panel). The AV connection on the back of the receiver is typically labeled (i.e. Video 1, AUX, VCR... or similar). If there's only one unlabeled input, choose something that looks like "AUX IN" from the menu.

Also, make sure that you connected the cables to the TV via the "Audio Out", not the "Audio In" ports.

If these are too obvious and you have already done this, please provide additional information.

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

I just sold my surround sound system and now I can't get the on board speakers to work.


Just check the rear of the television if by chance you have left any cable still connected to the audio output jack. If there the TV might be trying to redirect the audio to an external device not present. Sometimes it could also be a simple setting to be changed , . Check if you have a switch at the back of the TV stating External or Internal speakers. From the manual i got

A/V Receiver: The TV can detect audio connections on the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack and the right (red) analog AVR AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
Note for Analog A/V Receivers: When you disconnect an analog A/V receiver, manually change the Speakers setting to TV to hear sound from the TV speakers.

Press Menu on the remote-> Goto AV
Select Audio by pressing the right key
Under that the first option of Speakers -> select and set to TV.
Only then will the TV speakers play the audio.

Denon avr-1804/884, speakers Bose vcs center, Bose acoustimass 5 series 3 speaker system, Bose 201 series 4. All speakers play in test mode, with tuner, dvd, phono, cassette. The left side speakers will...


You don't say how "TV audio" is entering the system.

My guess is you're using analog audio Out from the TV into an analog input on the Denon. One channel failing would probably be the Left Channel cable failing or not seated.

I always recommend bypassing the TV audio entirely if the programming comes from somewhere other than its own antenna, as TV audio electronics add nothing good to the process.

If you're using cable box, sat box, game, whatever, ITS audio is best sent directly to your Denon's specialized audio hardware - digitally, if possible, to preserve multichannel possibilities.

You could also run standard analog audio from the cable box to the TV analog Audio IN if you just want to watch news and weather on TV speakers without the Denon involved.

Cannot hear my tv through a/v receiver


If it's a newer TV it will have an "optical" audio output, which will go to your AV receiver's CBL/SAT digital input. If it does not have an optical, chances are good that it has a "monitor out" which is Analog (RCA) which will work as well. If you need further help with this, post a comment and I can help you further.

Cant hook it up to the tv and make sound on speakers


There are a couple of things going on here.

First concept: The physical TV is NOT a good source of audio or video. It's there to turn audio and video from other sources into something your senses can enjoy. Many TV's (monitors) don't even have speakers.

You probably want the TV-related audio to play on your Sony. Your best source is to get it where it comes from. That is NOT the TV, more likely cable or satellite. Draw the best multi-channel audio (digital, if available) from it into the compatible input on the Sony.

The cable box will also have video and analog stereo audio. Run the BEST VIDEO (HDMI or component) to the TV's video and the analog stereo RCA Audio Out to the TV's Audio In so you can watch and hear cable without the Sony if you like.

You could also run the TV's analog Audio Out RCA pair into an AUX input of the Sony, but that would limit whatever you hear to stereo and any audio limitations of the TV.
