Is this a Pioneer receiver? They have the prefix of VSX but I can not locate that model on Pioneers website. It could be because it is an older model and no service information is on the website for receivers older than about 5 years old.

To answer your question I need more information. Do you want to connect the video switching of the receiver to the TV or just want the sound of the TV to go to the receiver? I would also need to know what type of video devices you want to connect and what type of inputs and outputs your TV has.

Most TV's have at least a composite video input, that is the most common type. it is a yellow RCA jack on the back of the TV and will be listed as an "input". That is what would be connected to the video output jack (yellow RCA) of the receiver from the TV for video switching. Then you need video sources connected to the video inputs of the receiver to go to the TV. You also need to connect the audio RCA cables from the video devices to the receiver on the proper video inputs that you have connected. Each video input for composite or S-video has audio RCA jacks (red and white) inputs so you can hear the sound of your video device on the receiver.

If you only want to play the sound from your TV on the recevier, you can use the audio output RCA jacks on the TV and connect them to an audio input of the receiver. This is a very simple way of using the receiver for all the different devices connected to the TV without having to connect everything to the receiver and then always having to have the receiver on any time you watch TV. The audio RCA jacks are always the red and white jacks. you just need to make sure you are using the output jacks of the TV and they are connected to an input jack on the receiver. Then you must switch the receiver to what ever input you just connected the TV to, like the "Video 1" or "Video 2" or maybe "Aux" input.

I hope this helps, but you didn't give much information on how you wanted to connect them.

A good rating would be appreciated if you found this free information helpful.

Let me know if you need any more help,

Dave

Was connecting subs to speaker connections when it popped, turned off and will not turn back on...VSX-518-k


You probably blew a fuse. It should be marked on the back next to where it tells you to turn the power off before connecting speakers.

Good Luck,

Problems with Sharp Blu Ray Player "copy protected signal"


Possible solution: You set up your remote to run your amp from the TV control, using the AQUOS Link. Even though your amp is out of the loop, it's still recognized by the TV. You might have to reset the TV back to default and run the AQUOS Link again.

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.
