Trying to run TV sound through the receiver. have tried running signals from TV audio output out to the receiver, have tried running signals from DVR to receiver, DVD to receiver, etc. All of the above result in terrible sound. Loss of midrange and treble frequencies, and the sound is so low that I have to turn the volume way up on the receiver. I am afraid that I will blow out the speakers if I forget to turn the sound down before I select the CD audio source. Any ideas? The CD sound is great. Using RCA cables. Have switched to different RCA cables. No help.

Re: bad sound when running signals through
I would guess that the switching chip is faulty inside the receiver. Since the CD works OK, the amplifier section and pre-amp section are good. What you are hearing with the others is crosstalk. This chip shouldn't be more than about $10-$15. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost. I think that the chip for your model is a TC9163.

If it is the radio you are trying to get make sure you have an antenna that is strong enough and can receive the signal. With a digital tuner it requires a strong enough signal to capture any channels.
More details please. WHICH way are you trying to get TV sound to go?
What model receiver (so I can steer you to a manual)?
You might want to ponder why you would need audio from a TV in the first place if it originates elsewhere like a Cable Box. The fewer hops and interconnects a given signal takes on the way from the source to your ears, the better (and cheaper, too, as optical or HDMI cable is expensive). You COULD skip the TV entirely. Many don't even HAVE audio (monitors, for example). The receiver only NEEDS a basic composite video output to the TV so you can use the TV for setup and control. You COULD run vanilla stereo audio to the TV from the Cable Box for watching Oprah.
I run all of my best DIGITAL audio directly from the sources to my VSX and the best DIGITAL video directly from the sources to the TV.
You may need to enable the fixed audio output line level from the TV. Some TV`s require you to enter the AUDIO menu/setup selection on the TV remote controller, and then enable the AUDIO OUTPUT Jacks, this will turn off the TV built in speakers and engage the audio RCA Jacks.
On , HTR-5930, composite inputs are routed only to composite outputs. The same happens to component input. You can't see video from V AUX if your TV is hooked-up on component output. Also, check if you connected correctly GREEN, BLUE AND RED on both receiver and TV SET.
These recievers are prime for running surround sound through you TV. It all depends on your TV service, Now if you have a cable box from Dish network, this is the easiest in the world, all you need to look for is an output labeled "OPTICAL OUT". It's a small port with probably a small glowing red light coming out of it. You'll need to buy and optical cable and plug it in there, and then run the other end to the optical input of your surround sound reciever, and then assign a video input to that digital audio signal. It's the best audio you can get by far.
Now if you down't have that, it is still very easy. Find you reciever look for a video input and plug an audio cable in(Red and White cable). Plug the other end into your TV's audio output, a red and white output that is probably labeled audio out, plug that in, switch TV to whatever you are viewing, turn on the reciever to whichever input you assigned and there you go.
If your TV doesn't have an audio output, then you need to go to your cable or sattleite box, and find the audio output, the R/W(Red & white), and run that out to your reciever, the sound won't come through the tv unless you run a second audio out from the reciever into you tv's audio input on the same signal your picture is coming from.
I also had the same problem when using my optical output for DBS and DIGITAL DVR/DVD.. you need to change the setting for this by on the remote changing to either analouge..rca sound input or Digital...for Optical input. The same problem cuaght me oput for a long time as well. The button is when you slide down the remote cover and the button is called analoug /digital
