MAKE SURE THE RCA JACKS ARE RUNNING FROM "AUDIO OUT" ON TV OR DVD TO "AUDIO IN" ON RECEIVER.

Disaregard the labeling. Anything can go just about anywhere except PHONO. That's only for a turntable.

Use a Tape Loop for the cassette; Aux for the TV sound coming in; CD for DVD, for example.

Of course, it's all just analog stereo.

Cant figure out how to hook up the receiver to my phillips hi def tv and get the sound?


its old model, will not pass hd video, good only for audio. Connections depend on your equipment. If you use a cable box to watch tv, connect cable box audio out rca connectors (red and white), by an audio rca cable, to audio TV input on the back of the receiver. Now when you swith your receiver to TV input you get sound from cable box trough your speakers.
If you use DVD player: connect audio out of the player to dvd audio input of the receiver. Switch the receiver to DVD input, you have sound from DVD.

I have sound when I play the dvd or the cd player


Sounds like the setup info got scrambled in the receiver. Re-program the TV input...from optical or coax or whatever way it is going into the receiver.

No TV sound, only DVD and CD players


Check your tv settings may need to change from speaker out to line out.

Check the tv input on the receiver, put the cd or dvd cables into the tv input. If you get audio the receiver is fine. No audio check the receiver settings.

How do we listen to aCD in 5 channel suround sound without having the TV on we can only get straight sound. We have a Yamaha RX-V365 av receiver.


Do you listen to audio CDs via a CD player or DVD player? Pure audio CD is only 2-channel, so either TV or the DVD player is doing the mix to 5 channels. But you can choose the sound mode via remote - there should be modes like 5ch/7ch stereo, where the same signal is going to all speakers (I you this mode for listening to radio sometimes).

No sound while playing a dvd jvc8040b receiver


Make sure the the necessary input of the tv is select to be able to play the sound from your DVD. Also check to make sure you are pluging in the sound cords into the input sound of the tv and not the output. Make sure the source of the tv that you selected to play the DVD through has a sound jack associated with it.

Harman kardon avr 140 - all displays work but no sound


I have an HK AVR140 all of the displays work, even shows when a digital connection from the Blu-Ray player is connected but no audio comes from the speakers! I found some information that HK does not have DC protection so when there is a problem muting Circuit is initiated on the main Amp. I called HK and they want me to send it in to a service dept that is not close at all. Any ideas? Or is there a way to by-pass the muting circuit somehow?

Hooking up DVD player to proscan TV. Video is coming thru but there is no sound.A digital cable box from comcast is in the mix. I can usually figure things out but I am stumped on this one. Any ideas?


Hi,if you have video and no sound you have hooked up the dvd with component cables but you still need phono cables for sound,run these from the dvd audio output to tv audio in,if you have a amp for sound come from dvd out to dvd in on your amp.

hope this helps.

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.
