As it is a 5.1 Speaker set, I assume there are lots of inputs to choose from. (like AUX, CD, DVD-player whatev). They are most likely RCA plugs (red and white)

- Check that the set is actually powered on. Some sets will have a red light for standby, and green for power-on. you might think it's on while it's only standby

- Select source. If the set has multiple inputs, you have to select one of them. If you plug your PC to AUX, select AUX on the front panel, or there will be no sound at all.

- Check the cable. Cheap RCA cables tend to die.

hope that helps.

I have the SR6200 and I am finding I have to really crank the volume to get the same sound that I used to have on a lower volume setting----I have not changed anything---any ideas? This is occuring with...


sounds like you have an issue with the cables/leads from the receiver to the other equipment? try buying a new set of cables and/or check that the pins/plugs are in correctly, they may have been disturbed? wiggle the plugs on the leads at the back of the receiver whilst it is playing music/tv and do the same to the rear of the dvd/tv/cable unit. if you get intermittent increase in the volume it is likely that the cable has a break in one of them? good luck

Trying to get surround sound speakers to work with TV


They come with 3 x 3.5mm stereo to 2 x RCA phono cables, so are obviously meant for plugging in to the back of a PC with 6ch output.

BTW - they're ****.

I should've known for £29....

Connecting Pioneer SX-737 Receiver to computer problems


I've been recording LPs for over a year now.

I've got the turntable outputs plugged into the phono inputs on the receiver amp.

I'm taking the Y cord (pair of RCA connectors at one end, mini plug at other) from the Tape Record (these are what you'd use to send a signal to the tape deck for recording) on the amp to the "line in" on the sound card. You may want to look up the specs on your sound card to make certain that you've got the plug in the correct socket. There may be a "line in" and a "microphone" socket. Use the "line in"

What recording software are you using? Audacity is free and is ok. I'm using Goldwave (costs ~$50) and highly recommend it. MUCH better than any other package I've tried. Just google "goldwave" to find it.

The recording software should have an option for selecting / specifying a source. If you have "microphone" selected and the y cord going into the "line in" socket, yoiu won't get anything.

Record from turntable to computer via Pioneer SX-737 Receiver


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Pls be informed that the model was not displayed, only the brand Pioneer.

Nonetheless and assuming that the turntable is built-in into the receiver, locate the REC out or LINE out at the rear of the receiver. Plug the RCA of the cable there while the 1/8 plugs into the AUX/LINE IN of the computer. Select PHONO in the receiver, in the computer, double click-on the speaker icon in the System Tray (clock). The speaker control window will open:
  • click on Options;
  • click on Properties;
  • tick/click Recording;
  • check Line in and/or Aux;
  • press on OK button;
  • adjust Aux/Line in setting to desired level.
It is of course necessary to likewise be running a recording program.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

AV Receiver pioneer vsx D914 does not turn on


See now what happen to me just last night actually was I was listening to music and had the receiver turned up to about -55. all of a sudden, it showed me AMP ERROR and shut off all on it's own and would not turn on.... I later was snooping around my wiring and fount two wires were touching. I have had the receiver unplugged since the incedent last night and I am going to try to get it working when I get home from work.. I know that it is a beautiful sound system and its sound quality is just amazing. It's definately the best system I have owned and I really hope that leaving it off for 24 hours will reset it and make it work again. I don't really have the money to go out and buy a new one.. nor do I really want to... If you have any luck you can let me know! Thanks!

I wana increase the sounds of my toshiba labtop


The only way you can get it to go louder is to add amplified speakers to it. They usually aren't designed with a lot of wattage to them to save on battery life.

If you really want it loud, you can get a Y audio cable with a mini stereo plug in one end and rca jacks on the other end and find a stereo receiver to plug it into.

Playing itunes through receiver


On the back of your tower you should have auxillary outputs that will go into your receiver. Get a connection going between the two ports and you should have perfect sound. The sound that comes out of your headphone output will not really have the amount of power that your receiver needs. Hope this helps.
