Is your tv wired to a cable box or an HD antenna?

Case 1: If your signal is weak, then the chances are that the feedback from your tv to the receiver's processor cannot interpret a Dolby Digital signal.

Case 2: Check the TV MENU AUDIO setting. Does your TV have a ON/OFF feature for the optical output, or any aux. speaker outputs?

I need to hook up my Kenwood vr-207 to a satellite HD receiver and blue ray player. How do I hook up the component cables. I am not sure where to plug in the "in's" and "outs".


In's always go to Out's.

The VR207 has no component video inputs, just a composite video output so you can use your TV for the receiver's On Screen Display.

http://www.kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/UnitedStates/Home/Manuals/vr207.pdf

Just run your BluRay and Cable box HiDef HDMI, component, s-video, composite video, whatever (in that order of preference) to a matching input on your TV or monitor.

As a rule you should run the best audio from each of your video sources to the VR. There is no compelling reason to ever send good audio or video to a device that has little (or no) use for it.

Unfortunately, the VR207 has no digital audio inputs, so the best it can muster regarding surround is Dolby Pro Logic derived from 2-channel inputs.

BUT, if you have a DVD, BLURAY player or cable Box with 5.1 analog outputs you can let their internal circuitry decode Dolby Digital programming to true 5.1 for input ("DVD/6CH") to the VR207.

Got a Kenwood vr405 surround receiver, a Sanyo plasma TV, hd cable box and an insignia blu ray player. Both the cable box and the blu ray player are connected via hdmi to the TV and the TV is connected to...


If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

Kenwood vrs-6100 receivers optical digital


You want to receive the optical signal from the TV's built in decoder / receiver to play through your Kenwood? Maybe you need to select the digital input. The manual says:

Use the INPUT SELECTOR key (or Input Selector keys)
to select DVD, VIDEO or FRONT AUX.

2 Press the INPUT MODE key.
Each press switches the setting as follows:

1 "F-AUTO": Auto detect
("AUTO DETECT" indicator lights up)

2 "D-MANUAL": Fixed to digital input
("DIGITAL" indicator lights up)

3 "ANALOG": Fixed to analog input *
("AUTO DETECT", "DIGITAL" indicator goes off)

Also check your TV to make sure it is outputting to the optical jack.

Dear Jennis,

Have you set properly your input source? What about program mode on your playback on your amp was it properly set. You have to let the amp knows that you are using an optical cable for input, this must be done from the controls.
