Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Open Question

I have purchesed this week an Azur 340R AV Receiver from Richer Sounts at Nottingham. I intended to use it with my SKY HD Sstelite box, also with my Freesat HD box. I used SKY satelite on video 1 and got picture and sound. I used Freesat on video 2 and only got sound. When I swopped them aouund I got sound and picture from Freesat and only sound from SKY HD box. In the manual it states that inputs have to be asignable to the different inputs. But to be available to do this I need to get OSD menu on screen and I have to have Composite RCA connections 75 ohm - video phono. I do not have this on my SKY HD box or my Freesat box or TV. I asked the Sales Assistant at Richer Sounds for advice. He read the manual and was of the opinion that the AV receiver should be 'plug and play' Can you please give me advice Many thanks Alan Garrod email - margaretgarrod@sky.com

SOURCE: No OSD on TV connected thru composite video (Monitor Out)

for the tx-sr606, the onscreen display will only show up when you connect the receiver using HDMI out to your tv. this is indicated on page 22 of the user manual.. hope this helps.. ^_^

SOURCE: No sound unless VIDEO signal is plugged into receiver

Connect the DVD player audio with digital coax into the digital audio connection as you described and the DVD video directly to the TV. Now switch the input mode on the receiver to DVD. Then switch the video output mode on the TV to correspond to the input you plugged into. Any source in 5.1 dolby digital or dts should now work properly and have picture too.

SOURCE: I am using an optical

In any 'connection' question there are at least two participants and specific answers require specific details about all components in the path.

Does the center speaker work for just speaker testing? Your unidentified BluRa player has to know there's a Center Speaker, too.

Digital bitstreams don't arbitrarily drop out one channel.

SOURCE: Denon 1312 receiver composite video inputs do not work.

I'm having the same problem with my Wii output. The manual for the Denon AVR-1312 says that analog video signals (i.e. component/composite outputs from the Wii) are not converted to digital video signals (i.e. HDMI output from the rcvr). I'm running only HDMI to a projector, so the video signal is essentially lost. The fix appears to be to run an additional composite cable all the way to the projector. Sounds like your fix is the same. No Wii tonight! :(

Cambridge Audio Azur 640R AV Recorder won't switch off


Sounds like the unit is victim of a power surge. The power control board is probably damaged. You will be better off replacing the amp as having it repaired will cost more than replacing it.

Connecting cable to receiver


Do you mean 5 RCA audio outputs marked as FrontLeft, FrontRight, RearLeft, RearRight, Center? Unfortunately this receiver doesn't have discrete 5ch inputs (as yamaha calls it on its webpage).
But the cable box should have also digital audio SPDIF output - that is either optical (square connector) or coax (RCA usually orange). You can use this for connecting to receiver.

Wired my surroundsound with scart to my sky box but only left & right speaker with sound


scart can only support 1x video signal and 1x L and 1x R in one direction
if you have a scart cable with more than 3 cinch connectors then you have one for two way, but you want to send 5 audio and 1 video channel one way from sky box to your receiver.

looking at the spec, your receiver does support a digital coaxial connection ( cinch orange) and a digital fibre connection
it also supports composite 5.1 analogue connection which is where are most likely already connected.
it does not seem to be a HDMI device.
if your sky box also has digital coax or fibre I recommend using one of these
alteratively if you wish to use analogue input on your receiver then ensure your topbox has corresponding 5.1 cinch connectors.
usually labelled (center, front,surround and possible also subwoofer)

if your receiver can generate 5.1 from 2.0 stereo (dolby pro-logic II) then ensure this setting is selected on your receiver.

not knowing what your sky box details are I can not say what is the best option. also check that your sky box is sending 5.1 signal out as some programmes may only be being sent in stereo so prologic will have to be activated to generate 5.1 from stereo.
