Question about Sony A/V Receiver

Sony a/v reciever not sending video to tv.....

I have had 2 different sony a/v receivers not send RCA video signal to my tv.

I tried to use the sony receiver to "pass" the video to my tv. All with RCA cables in, then 1 set of rca cable out to TV.

Then use the receiver to switch the source. The receiver only will switch the audio source and will not send any of the video to the TV.

I have been able to work around by direct inputing my video to the tv video1/2 inputs.

I don´t know if I´ve understood, but the best way to "pass" video signals to TV through receivers is using a stereo VCR, where you plug in any antenna. Then you connect VCR´s audio and video channels to the receiver. Turning on all equipment, select video1 source. You will hear sound through the system and watch video signal on TV. Hope this may help.

I have a LG47" tv


Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I HAVE A SONY RECIEVER STR-DH700, I get no sound


make sure the FM antenna is connected and in a good place then check to see if the A-B speaker selector is selected properly.check to see that the sound field is set properly, My 800 allows for several different options and if your speaker wires are reversed or not in the correct position front left at front left etc it will not send the signal to those speakers. try using the TEST TONE feature if you have one it will send a signal to each speaker in sequence (LF< C< RF<in order) it will go all the way around to see if they are connected properly, that way you can tell if they are connected at all or in the wrong spot on the back interface. I dont know if that is what you meant by AUTO CAL, but that is a seperate feature when you use the connected mic to determine range, height and distance to the position in the room you are most likely to be seated for optimal sound.

The direct tv reciever has a coax output that will send a signal to channel 3 or 4 that any older telivision can recieve...so the answer is yes. You obvously need a direct tv reciever to watch direct tv on any telivision.

Will not play on new RCA LCD TV tried different


Try hooking up your sony handycam to a different monitor or tv to make sure it is putting out a good video signal using an S-Video cable. Then once you know your cords are good and you have a good video signal, hook it back up to the RCA LCD unit. If it is still not working make sure that the RCA LCD is set to receive the Hi8 signal via the S-Video cable. There may be a switch or menu setting on your RCA LCD to accept the Hi8 signal or also refered to as S- Video.

I hoped that helped and good luck!

We have a cable box, rca reciever, a dvd and a non digital tv. Does the reciever need input from cable box, dvd and tv?? is red, yellow and white audio/video enough to connect or is a S-cable or optical...


From your cable box, send "optical" to the receiver. From the DVD send "coaxial digital" (looks like one rca cable" if your receiver has it, if not, optical is fine as well. There is no reason to send audio from the TV to the receiver unless you are using an "off-air antenna". If you want to have audio from the cable box to the TV for listening to TV speakers only, send an audio video cable (red/white/yellow) direct to TV. If you need more help just post a comment and I can help you some more.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


I had this problem too. Finally, after using the MCACC setup and making sure all the speakers worked, I found I had to set the source to FM, TV or whatever from the remote control and set the mode to advanced surround sound using the front panal button on the upper right. Had to fool with them a lot. Good luck.

SONY DAV - S880 compact AV system


Sony.com may have a pdf downloadable manual available on line.
The standard way to connect Audio from a Receiver to a TV is to send a signal from the Tape outputs (RED & WHITE) on receiver via RCA cable to a Aux input (RED & WHITE) on the TV. Likewise, sending a Video signal from a receiver to a TV, is via a Co-Axial RCA cable , using a Video Out (YELLOW) on the receiver to a Aux Video Input (YELLOW) on the TV. An S-Video cable can also be used (in leu of yellow RCA cable) if available on both Receiver & TV.

Installed surround sound, no picture on tv


I could not get my TV to recognize an S-video signal from my reciever either. I ended up just bypassing the reciever and running the video straight from the cable box to the TV. It might be a better option anyways as some quality is lost if you run it through the reciever.
