Hi jas

i would use hot glue. It sets real fast and is easy to administer. Put a dab on the cable, stretch, and secure into place. Hold for bout 5 secs, then on to the next spot. in this way you can tidy the lead dress as you go. If you dont wish to see the cable, I would use some square section conduit that has a clip down lid. You can get it from electrical wholesalers for about $10 a 3m length. The best of this stuff has double sided tape to fix it to the wall, however the cost goes up to like $40 a length

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Cant get sound to play through speakers? proper way to hook up?

Do you mean HDMI from Monster, if you do ensure that the cable is connected securely to the correct port. HDMI cables rely on both the devices for sending and receiving. Nothing will happen until both devices send the opposite signal. Hope it works for you!

Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display

It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck

How do I connect to set top box, The set top box is connected to the TV via HDMI.

Your set top box should have secondary RCA outputs along with the HDMI. run another RCA standard yellow- red- white cable to the Onkyo's video 1 input. Use Monster cables for best performance..

One of the speakers when turned on loud, there is humming sound. sound hear like a helicopter engine

Hi there,
we need to do a little bit of fault finding here to narrow down where it's coming from or what is at fault.
First try physically swopping the speakers over and reconnecting (do not just switch the cables at the back of the amp). Is the sound still coming from the same side or has it swopped over? If it's swopped over, it's a speaker issue and needs replacing.
Ok, if the strange sound is still happening from the same side, have a look along the speakers cable path. Is the cable running along side any power cables or extension leads or is it near any wall warts or mains transformers (the type you get with mobile phones, keyboards, answer machines,etc). If so, move the speaker cable a considerable distance away from these. Now, has it stopped or the noise reduced?
If we are still not getting anywhere, see if you can try your speakers on a friend's system and/or try someone else's speakers you know to work on yours.
If his/her speakers are noisy on yours, firstly you have to consider that most sytems at very high volume will produce some noise, but if it's actually quite a loud audible noise that's relatively new to the system, you need to get the amplifer serviced.

Hope this helps

Good luck

Hi Have Vizio Flat Screen and a Denon 3803 receiver. The Tv a Vizio 65 Inch flat screen was here. Out of the wall is a power cord and red,blue,green monster cable. Red and Blue is audio and green video I...

Red, Green and Blue cables together typically denotes a component video signal - an Analog, High Definition transportation for video. This cable does not carry audio, you need another cable to hook up audio between the DVR and receiver. You can use either an RCA stereo cable (red and white), optical-audio, HDMI, or a whole plethora of other audio cables. I would recommend optical or HDMI to get the most out of your system.

Sub digital coax connection

You will need to get a y connector and split the sub out signal between the one it came with and your additional sub. The connector you need is an MFF, (1-male, 2- female) RCA type.

Good Luck,

Well really its not a problem, its actually quiet simple really

I have always used Monster flat wire as it can be placed under along the carpet and the wall without leaving bumps under the carpet and it can also be painted if you need to run it exposed up a wall

Clear monter cable, needs to know witch is postive and negative.

Hi gaitan1

There are a few ways that cable can have positive and negative identified. In the case of monster cable, the first thing to look for is

  1. a single silver strand of wire in one bunch of many copper strands. OR
  2. writing along one side of the cable
  3. a fine ridge along one side
  4. a small white stripe every so often on one side
It is not important which one you make positive, but VERY important to get the speakers in phase. If none of these suggestions help you, I am happy to still assist you. :)

I took my Denon receiver to a local repair facility, because it wouldn't fully "boot", after shutting down, when I tried to run a computer rca plug (on both ends) from our computer to a in wall -...

Please post the exact symptoms. What do you mean by not "booting up"? Does it click on then click off? This would mean that the unit is in protect mode which is usually caused by a problem with the output amplifier section not the Micro. Do you have any experience with electronics repairs? If so, I can try to guide you through the repair.

Let me know.
