Why wont my surround work with new Dish network dvr.


Hello,

When the DISH Network installed hooked up their DVR, did they connect it via HDMI? If so, then it could be a bad HDMI connection. I would bet they simply bypassed your receiver and went straight to the TV, which is why no audio comes out of your receiver. You can test this by turning on your DVR and TV. If you see picture with your receiver OFF, then they bypassed your receiver. You'll need to hook up and HDMI cable from the DVR into the receiver and then out of the receiver to the TV.

How do I connect my Kenwood VR-715 surround sound system, Dish Network receiver, and HD LCD TV together so the surround sound works? Can't figure out what goes in the input, the order of the connections or...


Hello,
The best way to do this is to connect you dish network receiver is directly to the tv. Try to use the best video type possible. HDMI is the best, next is component and lastly is composite. This will take care of the video portion. Next, connect digital audio output to the Kenwood Receiver. I dont know what type of a digital audio output your dish box has, but your kenwood receiver has both optical and coaxial inputs so you should be fine there. Once you have both audio and video wired, change the inputs on both your tv and kenwood receiver to the inputs you are connected to. You might need to set up the kenwood to tell it that your running digital audio to it in the setup menus. Hopefully this helps, let me know if you need any clarification.
Good Luck

How to set up a sony suround sound to a tv!!!! without the manual


it depends on the model #, and where your tv gets its feed source.( dish network, comcast, ant, vcr, dvd player, etc)I have a sony surround with no manual and set it up my self. look on the back where the components hookup to if there is a yellow, white, and red on the input, that is where your feed should hookup to, and there should be a monitor out to your tv,( a yellow video plug ). if your surround does not have a yellow on the input it will bypass the surround and go to tv video in

Looking for a diagram on how to hook up my dish network box to my STR-de597


There is a wiring diagram PDF posted on Sony's support site. However it lacks a configuration for a satellite receiver. Without knowing your particular Dish setup, I'd say use the Component video cables and a fiber optic for the audio if you can. Otherwise, the component video and coaxial cables are your next best choice to get decent video and surround capability.
In both cases, you need 2 sets of video cables One for the in and another for the out. You only need 1 fiber optic or coaxial for audio if you do not plan on running the TV speaker system. Use the video 2 inputs for either video type.

If your TV has audio out and your surround sound has an audio in you need to get a lead to connect them together, most of them have - then you just select the Aux on the DVD/surround player (or whatever the input is called on the back) and everything comes through your speakers. If you only have headphone out jack on the TV it will mean you won't have your TV speakers working. I hope this is not really obvious to you and it was the first thing you tried!

Connecting TV and DVD for surround sound


HDMI is fantastic in that's the only thing you need to plug in to get what you want.
You'll need two of them however. Plug one end of the HDMI cord into the HDMI "OUT" on the dvd player and the other end of it to the receiver..labeled HDMI 'IN' Then, take the second cord and do that step with the receiver back to your big screen...HDMI OUT to IN.
Surround sound from TV sources only needs a L&R audio cable connected to the receiver input labled TV or MONITOR audio IN. Unless you'd like 5.1 dolby digital or DTS from the television that requires devices that you haven't mentioned owning. In that case you will be able to get Dolby ProLogic and Pro Logic II from stereo broad casted sources on your TV.

Is the volume on the dish network device turned all of the way dowm?

Is the dish network connected to its pwn input on the SS system and did you turn the SS system to that input ?

Are you using the analog input (red and white) cables to the input from the TV to the SS System?, not from the SS box? This is not the correct setup?

Hook up


Karri, I do not have the photo of the back, but attached is a general wiring diagram for any Audio-video Home theater system. If you have a Home Theater Receiver, then hook it up as the diagram. If not, hook it up per the comments in the diagram. This is how I hooked up my ONKYO HT system with my SONY Combo DVD recorder and my Mitsubishi TV. One thing to note on Combos, is that the VCR Tape section will not play through the High Definition connections (HDMI, and Digital Audio). You have to use the older method of Audio-Video (AV) cables or the Co-axial antenna cables. You can ask more questions if there is any confusions. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
