I have a YHT-23 Surround System and just recently I upgraded to HDTV via DirectTv. When I watch an HD program the sound cuts in and out and the display on the YHT Receiver switches back and firth between Dolby Digital and Prologic. Is this a problem with the receiver or the HDTV box?

It might be a problem with the cable you are using itself. Check the connection and try a different cable. What kind of cable are you using for audio?
Thanks,

    Have you tried other sources? Like a dvd player? Does that have the same problem?
    Thanks,

Hi, I have a Panasonic Blu-Ray Suround System with a Satellite HD box plugged into via optical. On normall channels the surround sound works fine, but when I switch to a HD Channel I get no sound. Any...


Check your sound settings on the satellite box, they might be set to output only to hdmi on hd, or the stereo/surround settings are messed up. If not giving a call to your sat tv provider might help because if it is a common problem they will know about it, and don't forget to do a full restart of the devices, this has worked wonders for me.

I hooked up a new lg hd tv via hdmi through my digital cable box. I am not receiving true surround sound, only dolby II. I have my box digitally hooked up to the receiver and the HDTV digitally hooked up...


It's possible that the TV broadcast isn't in true surround, and is only dolby encoded.
You can try going back to the component hookups, but I am not sure that will solve your issue.

I just order a hd flat led\lcd tv and would like to know if i could hook my pioneer stereo tuner control amplifier to it instead of buying a separate theater system for the tv....pioneer model cx-790.


I can't even find a picture of the CX-790 but the quick answer is a rhetorical question - why do you need to have them connect?

This is all food for your thought. Choose wisely going forward because you will either love or hate your system based on how well it serves your needs.

I'm sure your present TV-related programming comes into the house through a Cable / SAT box, so consider THAT as the audio source (discounting the TV) and route its best audio to the receiver. How do you do it now, I wonder? A new TV need not change the audio question. Your new TV, if it has speakers, could receive it's -box audio through low-end RCA cables in case you just want to watch talk shows or news without the audio system on.

If your TV actuall tunes it's programming via an antenna then it becomes an audio sourc of unknown capability at this point in the conversation. It could have analog and/or digital audio output or not. Treat it like a sound source as you would, say, a CD player.

Your Pioneer is just the sound end. If you want an immersive surround audio experience you do need to upgrade the sound end but not because you have a hi-def TV.

Pretend the TV is just a light show, because that's all it is. Some TV's are just monitors so the question of interaction wouldn't even come up.

The best end result for both watching and listening to high-end multichannel video is to run the absolute finest unaltered video from the source to the TV/monitor and the absolute best digital audio to a quality multichannel AVR with good speakers. The AVR will need a minimum composite video input on the TV so you can manage the AVR. Anything higher is a waste of expensive cable. Mimimizing 'hops' and interconnections lends a better signal path and fewer problems.

We recently purchased an AVR 146 receiver and have attempted to connect our DVR satellite receiver, a DVD player/recorder and our Hitachi (non HD) TV, plus a surround sound system to it. The surround sound...


Hello,

This is how the connection is suppose to be, DVR "OUT", to TV "IN" using the RCA plugs, then press AV on the TV. If this is how you connected it, then maybe there is something wrong with the video wire (Yellow).

As for the DVD, you need to connect an Audio wire separately because the component Red + Green + Blue wire only stands for video. Audio is Red and White, this must be connected for you to get sound from the DVD.

To connect the Audio for your DVD player, connect Red and White wire to Audio "OUT" of your DVD player, to "AUX" in of your AVR 146 receiver, then select AUX on your receiver and sound will come out from your DVD through the receiver.

I hope this is not complicated for you. This connection is simple, all you need is to understand the basics which is OUT and IN. If you want to watch DVD on your TV, this means the DVD will be good OUT to IN of the DVD. The same goes for audio.

If you don't understand, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

Good luck.

Yamaha Receiver sound cuts out with Dolby Digital.


Your problem is related to HDMI technology not the Receiver. HDMI in it's current version 1.3b has worked out 90% of the current problems being reported by HDMI users. it's a problem with HDCP digital copyright protection and the recording industry not wanting us "consumers" to duplicate or record their DVD's. Your receiver and every other receiver with version 1.1,-1.2, & 1.2a just don't cooperate with BluRay and even HD Cable or HD Sat receivers. If you just purchased this receiver recently, return it and get an 09' model or equivalent with 1.3a or 1.3b HDMI technology. If this unit is "un-returnable" then, what needs to happen is you need to run component video and digital audio to the receiver OR Run your HDMI directly to your TV and run a Digital Coaxial to your DVD audio input on the receiver. Depending on how many sources you are running to the TV via HDMI will be limited to the TV's capability (how many HDMI inputs)

Now, if your TV is 50" or smaller, the difference between running HDMI and Component is unmeasurable to the human eye. So, if you have to run component, don't sweat it! just use good cable, ie. Monster, Phoenix, Translucent etc. I do theese installs every day, and I still prefer Component or DVI if available over HDMI. They just haven't proved the reliability to me yet and we're three years in! Hope this helps

Just hooked up Coax cable; now talking is barely audible


is the center speaker turned up in the reciever speaker settings? each speaker can be adjusted to a level that is higher or lower or all the same as the rest. also is the dolby digital turned on in the reciever settings? and changing the surround sound pre set sounds can also improve the type of audio you are listening to in 6.1 surround sound

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

Denon avr-1909 crackling sound while watching Uverse HD.


It may may the the AT+T box is really not compatible with the AVR or the Pioneer.

Check the specs on those input/outputs for the Ubox and the receiver.
See if they agree. If so, try another hookup method like HDMI ( which carries the audio too)
