Make sure your audio input for TV/Sat is set to "Auto" If you have video passing to your TV from the receiver its a lot easire to navigate sony's GUI menu (main Menu) if not, run a basic video cable from the "monitor out" of the receiver to a video input on the TV. Then, using the sony remote press "menu" toggle thru the screens until you find "Audio" look for "input" then TV/Sat then set to "Auto"

I'm pulling this from memory, so if you still have an issue, please post a reply and I'll pull the manual and help you further.

SOURCE: no video

I am not sure if you have gone into the Receivers Menu or not? If you have NOT! Then please try this: Go into the Receivers Menu (If you do not see the MENU on the TV you can hook up a Composite (Yellow) Cable from the Receivers Monitor Out (Yellow) and select the Input on the TV that you plug into) Look in the Menu for Inputs or In/Out Config. or Video Setup. Look for the Input that you are using for that Device. Change the Video setting to HDMI. I also recommend doing this for you Audio as well. Find the Audio Inputs and MATCH each Input to there DEVICE and CABLE (Connection) Being used. Also check in the Receiver Menu for UPSCALE or UPSCALER. Turn this on or off to see if your TV is Compatible! Hope This Helps! P.S. Check the Manual for Upscaling Capabilities NOT all Receivers upscale and route the SAME!

SOURCE: my tx-nr905 recievers output audio

Semantics maybe, but sources are INputs. OUTputs are speakers, audio to other devices.

A DVD is always an INPUT.

So what's different? IOW, how are the DVD and Projector (Really? It uses a video OUTput) connected for audio? Have you looked at the manuals? Digital sources must be assigned, for example.

No audio after recording from sat. Reciever


Double-check your input cables from the receiver to the LG 389. Do you have the sat. receiver AV out connected to the front AV In on the LG DRT389? Make sure that you haven't mixed up the L and R audio connections on either side. (I've done something similar with RCA cables myself.) Next, try a different set of cables.

If that doesn't work, there may be a problem with the audio jacks on either your receiver or the 389. To check, plug the AV cables from the Sat. Receiver directly into the TV. If you have sound and video, then the input jacks on the recorder may be damaged.

Try using another input. (It looks like some models have the SCART input; you may need to set the input source in the menu under AV2 Decoder.)

The fact that you have audio output on USB and DVD's means that cables/connections between the LG289 and the TV are fine.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of which AV port you are using on the LG389 for additional assistance.

Denon AVR 1609 7.1 Channel Receiver turns on but i get no sound thru the optical to the tv. what could be wrong?


If you have your video equiptment hooked to your reciever input, then, out to TV, This isn't the best way to go. Of course it depends on what you have for input and output on your TV but, the ideal way to hook your system would be to hook all video equiptment to TV, ie:, cable/sat box, DVD player, etc., to TV via, HDMI, Composite, RCA, etc., then run your digital optical out from TV to reciever. You would use the TV's menu to choose what you watch and would only have one input(audio) to reciever. Some recievers are set up to transfer video, but, it uses more cables, creates more connections, and more room for error.

I have direct satalite tv VR 6050 kenwood surround sound tuner vizio tv, dvd player, and a vcr, Im confused on how its hook up and what order should it go something like sat in to sat box to kewood...


that reciever is not going to carry a hi definition video signal, it doesnt have either hdmi or component video inputs.

you can still use it, but if you run the picture through the reciever, it will have poor quality.

heres how you are supposed to hook it up:

find the single,m yellow video jack on your sattelite box, and hook that up to the "tv" video input, then hook the laft and right audio outputs from the cable box into the "tv" audio left and right inputs on the receiver. hook up the dvd player and vcr in the same manner, using "dvd" and "VCR" (if labeled as such) inputs on the reciever.

finally, send the tv video and audio outputs to the composite video in and left/right audio inputs on the tv. the video will be running through the reciever, and when you use the reciever to switch the sound source, the video will also be changed. you could get better picture quality if you ran the video directly to the tv using component (seperate green, red and blue) outputs/inputs, and bypassing the reciever on the video end, but then you would have to change inputs on the tv AND reciever to change from your cable box to your dvd player.

Hooking up my Sony HD Tv


Couple of items come to mind.
In the menu of the receiver, is there a way to choose video and RGB?
Set the receiver to SAT
Connect the HD Cable Box to SAT
Check the TV is on Monitor RGB.
Check the input being used by the monitor RGB cables is selected on the TV.
Have a picture? NO, receiver has issues.
Yes? Do this with each input to confirm they work.
You can reset the whole receiver to factory by holding the tone button down and holding the standby button for three seconds. (This clears your speaker setups, too.)

TV only formats at 480i


Check in your instruction manual to see if the set can actually work in 1080i. Most of the sets going back about 4 to 6 years ago were not capable of working in 1080i.
The signal coming to your Sat box may be in 1080i, but your Sat box has to be able to output 1080i. This can be quickly verified by calling the support for your service and giving them the model number of their Sat box.

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
