Question about Onkyo TX-SR602 Receiver

1 Answer

I have the receiver hooked up to a Sony TV via component video. When watching cable TV the colors are really off on the TV. However, while watching a video (DVD), the TV's picture is great. Is this a problem with the receiver or the TV? Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks...

I don't know what kind of tv you have but, receivers can pass video along to the tv but, are not the best way to go. If you have the capability of running your video components dirctly to tv then sound out to receiver, you would get better results. Component video is great, as good as or, better than HDMI, the only advantage to HDMI is the audio but, digital optical for audio is great also. Component video cables can be tricky because you have to make sure the connectors are in all the way. If they are not inserted properly, you probably notice too much blue or green. While watching your cable, try twisting and pushing connectors and see if you notice any change in the color quality

When watching cable tv we are not getting any sound from the speakers. We do get sound from all the speakers when watching a dvd or listen to the stereo. I have a Yamaha HTR 5660 receiver. All the cables...


Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

How do i hook it up to a lcd tv with one digital output?


All of your vidoe components should run directly to TV via HDMI, component, etc., as input. Anything you hook to Tv can be watched using TV's menu, ie: TV, DVR< etc., of course, if you use component cables, you have to provide audio with other means. All you have to do then, is, run your digital optical out from TV to reciever. Use your TV menu to watch and you will only use the one input to reciever. Make sure you go through the recievers menu to make sure you have chosen the proper channel for listening, Vid2, Aux, etc.

How to hookup all the units ,cable, vcr, dvd , tv.,and receiver


It all depends on what you have for inputs on TV really. Any video components should be hooked directly to TV via, best, HDMI, next, component. Component has great video but doesn't carry audio, for audio, you would have to use separate cable(s), digital optical being best. The best scenario would be to run cable/sat, dvr, etc, to TV then hook TV audio out, via digital optical, to reciever. You would use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, would have one audio out to reciever. Some, if not most recievers have video pass through but, it's not the best route and, you have more connections and more margin for error.

I have an HD PVR (Explorer 8300) and have connected to my Samsung TV using HDMI cable. My question is can I connect my SONY STR DE605 receiver or do I need a new one?


Depending on your tv output, you shpuld be able to hook your TV to receiver via audio output. Running your video components through your receiver will not give you the best performance anyway. Run your HD DVR to TV the way you have it then, if it's possible to run audio out from TV, via, RCA, digital optical, etc., to your receiver. The sound will be transfered through the TV. You may also be able to utilize component out from your HD DVR and a separate audio cable.

Video Issue with Onkyo 606 when trying to watch Cable TV.


When this happens and you just see the input label try to press the power button on the front of the cable box and see if it brings the picture up. If this does produce the picture then it is a good possibility that something is interfering with the remote communicating with the cable box. I don't know if you have it contained in an entertainment center or how you have placed your equipment but if there is glass try to clean it and also wipe down the front of the cable box and make sure there is an unobstructed view of the front of the cable box.
Good Luck.

I have a samsung led tv and am trying to hook up a wii. The tv does not have component video - only hdmi and usb. How do I hook this up?


I've never heard of a TV not having component cables (the 5 plug cables: red, blue and green video cables, red and white audio cables). I've seen some newer ones without composite (3 cables: yellow video, red and white audio), but never component.

I find is hard to believe it has no component. I looked at some Samsung LED tv's this weekend, and although they lacked composite, they had component. Are you sure you mean component?

The Wii only comes with composite video cables, so you'll need to buy a component video cable for the Wii to hook it up if your TV has no composite inputs.

Component Cables for the Wii

TV's have inputs on the side and rear. If the TV truly has HDMI, USB and nothing else (which I find hard to believe), then you'll need a cheap home theather 5.1 receiver. Ifyou get a cheap one with HDMI out, it should have a few composite inputs on the backside. A cheap sony one can be had for sub $200. If you hook the Wii into the receiver via composite, and the receiver into the TV via HDMI, it will allow you to hook up and play the Wii (and it may upconvert it too, depending on the receiver).

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
