SOURCE: I have a new 52"

I have the same situation....what I have done is connected my Blue ray to the TV via the HDMI connection and the audio to the RTDVD1 via an Optical cable. I find this is the best connection and sound reproduction so far. The input of the RTDVD is the SAT/Optical input and then switch the source to SAT/OPT. You will have to make adjustments in the BlueRay player's audio setup to enable the 5.1 DB digital sound etc.

SOURCE: How to connect an Xbox 360 to an RCA RTD205 System?

you can turn every thing into surrond sound. all your visual componants, i.e. x-box, cable, dvd player and so on. connect directly to your tv, right? if so go to your local eltronics store and get youself an optical cable, typically $50.00 or so depends on the length. Go home with that cable connect it to the optical out on your tv and optical in on your reciever, (stereo) and bam all componants are now linked to your surroun sound. Dont forget to post your satisfaction. Be sure you have optical in and out before you go buy this wire. For god sake do not kink this wire either or you will have to buy a new. There is glass inside of optical wires, that transmits the light that the sound travels on.

You should have the HDMI plugged into the Home theater unit. The theater unit then is attached to the TV using the HDMI out.
The home theater unit passes the HDMI through to the TV while playing the audio for you.
You will likely need to select the correct source on your RT2910.
Here is a link to the manual.

See the section entitled "Connecting to HDMI Components" for an illustration of what I have described above.

How do you connect a Xbox 360 into a Samsung Home Theatre System HT-Q9?


i think that is a "theatre in a box" and some of those dont have the right inputs for adding additional hardware such as an xbox. look at the back of the samsung,if it does not have an audio input you cant do if. if it does you will have to find the older style cable from your xbox to plug the audio into the samsung. if it has the right inputs, then hook em up and your done. if it only has the audio inputs you will have to take the video directly to the tv and choose the right input on the tv. then hook the audio input to the samsung.

I hooked it up the way the manual said and it doesnt work


Try whatever applies best below, in order...

Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the receiver so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the system on. Turn TV volume UP.

Depending on your TV's Video In capabilities, use the Cable Box HDMI, Component (Red, Blue and Green), or Composite Video (single Yellow associated with the Audio Out) directly attached to the TV.

Conection to tv problem


gerardali,The question is what input connection do you have on your TV?

Your Venturer has three types of video outputs:
1) Composite video (single yellow RCA)
2) S-video (single 5 pin cable)
3) Component (3 cables-red, green & blue RCA's).

The component will give the best picture but not all TV's have this connection. The second best is the s-Video but again not all TV's have this connection either. The composite is the lowest quality and the most common available connection.

Make sure that you are using the same audio and video inputs on your TV; such as, if your audio is going in AUX 2, make sure your video connection of choice is going into AUX 2 also.

Xbox 360


There are a couple of options you can use.

Are your DVD and cable actually going to the Onkyo first and then to the TV? I am assuming it is, if you listen to the Onkyo when watching a DVD or cable.

The Onkyo receiver you have has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output.

Does your Xbox360 have an hdmi output and that is what you want to connect to the Onkyo? Some do and some don't.

If your Xbox has a hdmi output and you are already using the 2 hdmi inputs on the Onkyo, you can not connect the Xbox using the hdmi, you have no more hdmi to connect to, so you must go thru one of the other inputs of the Onkyo.

The hdmi has the video and audio together, the other video options do not. you would need to run seperate audio cables as well.
Your Xbox should have a composite video (yellow RCA jack) output or a component video (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green RCA jack) output.

When you connect the Xbox thru, lets say the composite video of the Onkyo , you will also need to connect the audio from the Xbox to the Onkyo on the same input. It should be right next to the yellow RCA jack or right under it. They are 2 RCA jacks, one red and one white.

You will then need to connect the composite output of the Onkyo to the composite input of the TV.

When connecting like this, you will also need to select the composite input on your TV with your remote for your TV. Your TV should have an input button that lets you go thru all the different inputs to it.

you can also use the component video from the Xbox if it has that. But you must also run the audio to the Onkyo as well to the corresponding audio inputs of the component video input on the Onkyo.

This may sound a little confusing, but remember that the hdmi has the audio and video in one cable, the other video options do not, so you must run additional cables for the audio to the Onkyo from the Xbox.

Also remember whichever video you use from the Xbox to the Onkyo, you must also run that same video from the Onkyo to the TV and then switch the TV over to that input when you want to watch the Xbox on the TV

XBOX 360 Elite RCA video connection problem


On the TV you should have a video, input or mode button. If you press that button while the 360 is on it should pickup the signal. You need to be in video mode instead of cable mode since you are using the red, yellow, white cables. Many TVs have a few video modes so press it wait a few seconds and try again if it does not work. Hope this helps:)

YPbPr inputs not working


Tacz, What video input# on the back of the TV is your component video?? Are you sure the TV is set to look at that video input#??? You may be looking at one of the composite video inputs as far as the TV is concerned and with nothing plugged in to that input the TV would naturally give the error message you indicated. Let me know.. Bill
