Question about Technics SA-DX1040 Receiver

1 Answer

Sa-dx1040 dvd optical input works, tv and cd do not.

L connected a roku netflix player optical output to the cd optical input on the dx1040 and got no sound. I had the hdmi output directly connected to the tv set and thought that maybe that shut down the Roku's optical output. I talked to a Roku technician and he had me unplug the hdmi from the Roku to see if that worked. It had no effect. When I plugged the optical output from the Roku into the dvd input on the 1040 it worked great whether the hdmi was plugged in or not. Yes, I did change the input selection on the 1040. I also tried plugging into the 1040's tv optical input and that did not work either. Since I am using the dvd input for my dvd, I would really like to use one of the other 1040 optical inputs. Please help.

How do i connect a roku soundbridge to TX-NR509? I have tried optical, coaxial, and rca connectors. I have tried every inout.


The Soundbridge only has Audio OUTputs, so they would only work with INputs on a downstream device. Did it not come with a manual?

http://soundbridge.roku.com/support/userguide.php

http://soundbridge.roku.com/soundbridge/features.php

The Soundbridge is for all intents and purposes an external digital or analog source, not unlike a CD player, from the TX-NR509's perspective. ANY digital input must be assigned internally at the TX-509, which also has documentation here...

I have a Sa-ex900 amp hooked up to Television ,vcr and dvd player. When I turn the amp on and want to play the tuner , the television bleeds through. In fact TV plays through all buttons except VCR1


Hi,
it seems to be ,you have a possible wrong connection..I
may I recommend you to check the connections in accordance with my model connection procedures given below and correct if something is misconnected..

I believe Your Television ,vcr and dvd player all connected to each other thru Technics Receiver itself (not directly connected to each other ) and whenever you want to listen/watch any of it ,you make a selection thru Receiver..
** in order to do this both DVD and VCR 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables for "IN" and "OUT" should go to Receiver separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other ..pls remember,Always reverse connected )
** Additionally your RECEIVER's prefably only "1xRCA Video Output " should go to TV to watch the video of both DVD and VCR (audio will come thru Receiver.)

Ok, now Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action to listen your TV on Receiver
** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV .( every TV has different type of Audio out jacks )
** to "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
of your Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
There you go..Tv sound are on the
Receiver .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Hi,here is my simple solution...
To listen your TV on your
samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,

dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"

Technics SA-DX940 Digital optical audio input


When you say you have sound from the BD prior to disc load... where (TV and/or receiver)? Initial wake-up audio is usually 2-channel.

Describe the optical audio connection input to the receiver and any other audio paths that are attached.

Do you have other multichannel sources you could use to test this, like a cable TV box?

There's an obscure setting in the receiver called PCM Fix (on Page 21). Give that a look.

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

How to connect Netflix Roku player with pc and tv


Yes, it connects directly to your TV with a choice of cables - check their site for a description of your options there.  And if you have a wireless network (router) it will connect to the internet through that, so you don't need to have a cable running back to where your computer is.

Technics surround sound system


Use whatever TV sound output conforms to your receiver's input. If an optical or coaxial digital sound output is available, that is the way to get 5.1 surround sound through the SA-DX1050. But you have to assign the correct input (COAX, OPT1 or OPT2) to the selector (TV, DVD, CD). See pp 12-13 of the operationg instructions for D-Input instructions. If you don't have the manual you can download it at Panasonic.com.
