The base station for these headphones will have to be plugged into your AV unit. This is done with either a 1/8" jack or a 1/4" jack. Once the base station is plugged in, you will be able to use your wireless headphones.

I connected an aux to it i dont know how to like put it in aux mode i cant find it


The MHC-GX9900 has several audio input ports (RCA L/R) on the back of the unit. Press the TV or Video/MD buttons on the left side of the amplifier part of the unit. Alternatively, these are accessed in turn by repeatedly pressing the Function button on the remote. The TV input is the top one of the pair of inputs. The front ports are audio out to headphones and a pair of microphone in ports.

I hope this helps.

How Wireless Headphones Work and How to Connect Them jabra_revo_wireless_image_1440x1440px_08.jpg?h=204&w=204Wireless headphones are headphones that connect to a device, such as a smartphone, stereo speaker, television, gaming console, computer, or other electronic devices without using a wire or cable. Wireless headphones work by transmitting audio signals through either radio or IR (infrared) signals, depending on the device.

From call centers to fitness centers, wireless headphones are used by millions of people every day for work and play. For example, wireless headphones are popular with gamers, since it frees you to move around without having to worry about a cord. People doing a workout at the gym or in front of their TV in the living room love the freedom of wireless headphones. They are also perfect for people who want to watch late-night television without disturbing others.

Wireless headphones work by connecting, or pairing, with the device you want to use, through a radio or infrared signal. Many devices use Bluetooth technology to make connecting easier for the user. Devices with Bluetooth technology can connect and exchange data over very short distances using radio transmissions.

A product with Bluetooth technology has a tiny computer chip inside that contains the Bluetooth radio, and software that makes connectivity between devices possible. So when Bluetooth-enabled products, such as a cell phone and headphones, are in close proximity to each other, they connect, or pair. This enables you to talk on the phone or listen to music without wires.

Connecting a wireless headphone differs depending on the device you are using, but it's easy once you know how. Here is a list of the most popular devices that people use with wireless headphones and how to connect them.

Connect Wireless Headphones to a TV

First, make sure that your base is plugged in and the headphone batteries are fully charged. Ensure that the headphones and television are in close proximity to one another. Turn the headset on. Go into setting on your TV and turn on Bluetooth. Find the headphones under Bluetooth devices in your TV and you should be able to hear the television.

Connect Wireless Headphones to an xBox 360

The xBox 360 supports two different types of wireless headphones, ones that have Bluetooth capability and ones that do not. The first method explains wireless headphones with Bluetooth capability.

Xbox 360: Headphones with Bluetooth

  1. Plug your wireless headset into the console to install the latest headphone drivers. You will need to be connected to xBox Live in order to do this step.
  2. Make sure that your headset is charged, which can be done by simply plugging it into the unit. If you charge your headset through the console, it will connect automatically most of the time. If they don't connect automatically, turn on your console first and switch the headset so that it is in xBox mode.
  3. Press the power button for two seconds until it flashes green. You should then hear a start-up sound, and when you hear that, press the connect button for two seconds.
  4. After you release that button, press and release the connect button on the console within 20 seconds or the connection will not be made. The green lights will flash three times to let you know the connection was a success.

XBOX 360: Headphones without Bluetooth Capability

  1. Make sure that your headphones are charged, which can be done by plugging them into the USB port of the console.
  2. Turn on the console and the headphones. After they are powered up, push and release the connect button on your console.
  3. Within 20 seconds, press the connect button on your wireless headphones for two seconds. You should now hear sound from your headphones.

Connect Wireless Headphones to the iPhone

Setting up your wireless headphones with Bluetooth technology is easy on the iPhone. Here's how:
  1. Find the "Settings" icon on your iPhone, which is normally on the home screen.
  2. Open and click on the "General" button.
  3. Then, hit the "Bluetooth" button and slide it over to turn the function on.
  4. Your iPhone should find the device once this is enabled and should show the device name on screen. When it does that, you will need to hit the "Pair" button in order for the devices to sync. You may need to enter a four digit password, which is provided with your wireless device.
  5. Once that is entered, hit "Connect" on your iPhone to complete the setup. Your headphones should now be working properly.

Connect Wireless Headphones to the PS3

  1. You will first need to register the headphones to the PS3 through the Bluetooth settings. Here's how:
  2. Go to the XMB home menu and select the "Settings" icon.
  3. From there, select the "Accessory Settings" icon, and from that menu, find the option that says "Manage Bluetooth Devices."
  4. If there is no current Bluetooth device registered on the PS3, there will be an option that says "The Bluetooth device has not been registered. Do you want to register?" You will need to highlight the "Yes" option and click the "X" button on your controller. If the pairing was successful, the device will show up on the screen.
  5. Next, you will see a screen that says "To register (pair), you will need to prepare the Bluetooth device. For information on preparing the device, refer to the instructions supplied with the Bluetooth device."
  6. Click on "Start Scanning" on the screen with your "X" button so that the PS3 can start to scan. Also, you need to make sure your headphones are in pair mode so that the PS3 will recognize the device. If the pairing was successful, it will show you on the screen and you just need to hit the "X" button to continue.
  7. You will then be asked to enter the pass code or security key that was provided with your wireless device. Use the keyboard that is provided on the screen to enter the pass code. Once everything is entered properly, a message tells you that the device has been registered.
  8. Next, go back to the "Accessory Settings" menu to access the "Audio Device Settings" menu. Select the "Input Device" option by clicking "X" on the controller. When the new menu opens, look for the proper microphone input that corresponds with your device. Once you find the right one, click the "X" button.
  9. Select the "Output Device" option to select the headphones. Once you search through the options that the system recognizes, click "X" on your wireless headphones to select them. You should now be set up and ready to use the wireless headphones and microphone.

Connect Wireless Headphones to an iPod

  1. jabra_revo_wireless_image_1440x1440px_14.jpg?h=444&w=444Make sure that your wireless headphones have Bluetooth capability.
  2. Access the "Settings" icon on the home screen of your iPod. Select the "General" option once you are in that screen.
  3. You will then see an option that says "Bluetooth", which you can slide over to enable Bluetooth on the iPod.
  4. Be sure that your wireless device is in discovery mode so that the iPod can recognize it.
  5. Once you enable the Bluetooth on the iPod, it will list any devices that is recognizes. Simply click on your wireless device when the iPod shows it and click the "Connect" button. Your headphones should now be paired and working properly.

HOPE THAT HELP - GOOD LUCK.

I go to set up my wireless headset with my playstation 3 but it won't pick up any devices.


You must put both the PS3 and the Backbeat into pairing mode. See your instruction manual for the PS3 for pairing. Once you have both devices searching for each other they should pair right up.

Instructions for putting the Backbeat 903 in pairing mode:

With the headphones powered off, press and hold the Power/Pairing button until the LED indicator flashes blue and red.
Use the PS3's menu to search for the Bluetooth headphones and select 9xxBackBeat.
If prompted, enter 0000 for the PIN code/passkey.

Cant pair ps3 wireless headset


sometimes it is easier just to watch a video!

Here ya go. please remember to leave me a positive rating and a testimonial really helps!!

thank you!

1. CompatibilityThe PS3 supports only one headset at a time. Multiple players on the same console will have to share.
Bluetooth:
  • The PS3 uses Bluetooth version 2.0, and is compatible with all earlier versions (1.0, 1.1, 1.2). 2009 may see version 2.1 Bluetooth headsets hit the market, so you will have to try it for yourself on PS3.
  • All brands of Bluetooth headset should work with the PS3.
USB:
USB (wired) Headsets can also be used with the PS3.
  • Any of the PS2 compatible USB headsets should work with PS3 games.
  • USB headsets are required for PS2 software used on the PS3.
Not Compatible with Bluetooth Stereo Headphones:
  • The Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.
  • If you want to listen to the gameplay with headphones then they will have to be compatible with your TV or stereo receiver.

2. Setup
A Bluetooth headset has to be registered, or "paired", with your PS3 before it can be used.
  • Make sure your Bluetooth headset is fully charged before you begin.
  • Check your headset instructions for entering "pairing mode". Activate your headsets' "pairing mode" so it can be recognized by the PS3.
  • On the Cross Media Bar (or XMB) of the PS3 go to the "Settings" tab, then down into "Accessory Settings", then down into "Manage Bluetooth Devices".
  • With your headset in pairing mode, follow the onscreen instructions and let the PS3 scan for your headset. When your headset is found, follow the prompts and enter a pass key (if necessary- the default is usually 0000 for all brands). The pairing should now be complete.
If you're using a USB (wired) headset, just plug it into one of the ports on the front of the PS3 (the system should auto-detect the USB headset).

Mic Test and Volume Setting
After pairing a Bluetooth headset, or after plugging in a USB (wired) headset, return to the XMB. Go to "Accessory Settings" and choose "Audio Device Settings". You can test your headset here.
  • Your headset should appear as the audio input/output device. If not, just use the D-pad to highlight the Input line, then scroll until you see yours. Any microphone you have used with your PS3 will be listed, but only the current one will be available to select.
  • Set the "Microphone Level" to 3. You can change the level any time if needed.
  • Speak into the headset, and the level bar at the top of the screen should move at the sound of your voice.
You can also view a list of Bluetooth accessories you have registered in the "Manage Bluetooth Devices" tab under "Settings".
If your mic doesn't appear there then try pairing it again.

There are more ways to configure the audio input and output that can be useful:
  • Set the input to (your mic) and leave the output on (default)- one person can chat with the other players, and the replys will play over your TV speakers rather than into your mic. Great when sharing one console because everyone can hear the team talk.
  • Set the input and output to (default)- you will hear the game sound and voice chat through your TV speakers but won't be able to talk back. Great if you don't have a headset, or if you want the room to hear the team chat.
  • Set the output to (default) to use stereo headphones with your TV or receiver. Then set the input to (your mic) and you can chat while wearing stereo headphones. Keeping the mic close to your face could be a problem since both ears are already taken! You could try a USB desktop mic and see if that works.




3. Troubleshooting

General:
If you are having trouble with a headset after it is paired with the PS3, there are a few things to check first:
  • Make sure your headset battery is charged and working. Be aware that some brands/models will need to be paired again after each recharge. It's not a problem, it's just the way those models work.
  • Make sure your controller is charged. Lots of strange things happen when the controllers don't have enough power, like dropouts and headset interference.
  • The headset should be set as the input/output device from the XMB.
  • For Bluetooth users, make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices in use near your PS3. Also try to eliminate any other radio frequency interference if possible.
  • For USB users, make sure the connection is secure and there are no wire breaks.
  • Update your console to the current available firmware.


Pairing Problems:
  • If the PS3 cannot locate your headset, make sure that your headset is in pairing mode before you start scanning. The headset instructions will tell you how to set yours to pairing mode.
  • If your headset is missing from the device menu after you re-start your PS3, you will have to pair again. Many headsets will only "remember" one device at a time, so you may have to register again after using your headset with a phone.
  • If your headset appears on the Audio Device menu but is "grayed out" or not selectable, it is not connected. Make sure the headset is charged, and that it is on in standby. I should connect automatically when the Audio Device menu is selected. Tap the call button on the headset if it does not connect, or click on the Connect Bluetooth tab on screen.
  • Make sure no other Bluetooth devices are in use nearby.

Voice Chat Drops:
  • Most in-game voice chat drops are simply network lag. Usually they go away after a short time, so be patient. In extreme cases you may have to leave a game and return to reset the chat function.
  • If you use wireless internet, a low signal strength to your modem/router can make voice chat malfunction. Make sure your wireless signal is as strong as possible to your access point.
  • Sometimes a headset will quit after changing discs to another game. Go to accessories and select your headset again.
  • Make sure no other Bluetooth devices are in use nearby.

I dont know how to connect the wii to my rx-465 receiver.


The Wii AV cable should have a red/white pair of Audio Output jacks on it.
Check out pg. 8 of the Wii manual: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloads/WiiOpMn_setup.pdf
Connect the red/white RCA plugs from the AV cable to a line level audio input on your receiver. If you use AUX IN, then select AUX IN on the INPUT selector switch. You should then hear the sound from the Wii through your receiver/home theater system.

Av connections not giving signal to tv


you have to manually change the output in the settings menu back to ANALOG Using an HDMI TV or monitor 1st, when you select RCA, or AV output and restart, it will work, but when you switch back, you have to change it (back to HDMI output) on the analog monitor, or use analog TV inputs, then reboot PS3 and connect HDMI.
I do not know why Sony did not make this switch automatic and self scanning on boot, but alas I have had the same issue, so I know this is your problem, not the AV cables.

The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs
