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.

Can you use an Onkyo RC-771M remote control to operate Onkyo receiver TX-SR502 ?


Unfortunately, the RC-771M remote doesn't control the TX-SR502. It will only work with these Onkyo models: TX-NR1008 and TX-NR808. The RC-567M is the one for the TX-SR502; replacement remotes that are exact replacements are still available from various places including Amazon.com .

Since the TX-SR502 was released in ~2004, that replacement remote probably won't control other devices that were released in 2004 or later. Onkyo changed its IR code programming before the TX-NR1008 was released in ~2010 and the RC-771M can't communicate with the older receiver. The manuals for the receivers listed above are still available from Onkyo on the product page under the Downloads tab.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have an audio problem with my TX-SR502.


If your remote also controls the Cable Box you might want to look at its audio settings. Maybe you muted it.

BTW: it would be a good idea to also run video and analog audio from the cable box directly to the TV if it has speakers so you can watch and listen independent of the Onkyo.

Central chanel no works


Hi on Onkyo receivers you must go into the speaker setup and select YES for center channel, I've on occasion turned a setting to no when I wasn't paying attention.

If that doesn't work check to see if your unit has PRE inputs and outputs
if so there should be a jumper pin that connects the two.

My Onkyo tx sr502 quit producing sound?


I have the same problem.It's definitely the pre-amplifier board (board with speaker terminals).I did not quite nail the exact component yet but I replaced with a working one and got back sound output.
