Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have just purchased a Pioneer VSX517 and have connected the digital audio (via SPDIF cable)to a digital TV (Hisense mod-HSLC2629HDI). I have selected all relative options on the amp (auto, digital & analogue) The analogue works fine (AV from the TV for video), but I cannot get sound from the optical connection for digital TV stations. The TV is transmitting light via the cable, which makes me suspect a setting or problem at the amp. Out of desperation, I selected all sound options (5.1 surround, stereo etc.) Any help appreciated.

After some searching I found that I needed to assign the digital input, as instructed on page 30 of the instruction manual, "The Input Assign Menu".

I am not sure if this can be plugged into the sb 2920x-c6 digital in socket or if you need a digital amplifier between the two items ?
Someone else on fixya may know if a digital amplifier is needed or a direct connection from tv to sound bar is possible via a spdif cable.

Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei


The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

How to connect the PS3 to RX-V365 to get best sound qualitity in films. I have sony BRAVIO LCD wiht PS3 and I recently bought RX-V365 Yamaha home theater system. Please advice on connecting all three to...


You can connect PS3 video via HDMI to receiver and from receiver via HDMI to TV. But RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio, so you have to connect audio separately via SPDIF digital cable. I think PS3 uses optical SPDIF, so you will need optical cable. If you can't find cheaps optical cables in your shop, you can try byuing from ebay ($1-5 max.)

Connect my xbox on reicever


Hi,
If your xbox has HDMI connector then you HDMI cable to connect it to the receiver and another HDMI cable to connect receiver to the TV. Receiver should support both video and audio over HDMI.
If your xbox doesn't have HDMI, connect the video directly to your TV using whatever connector/cable is available (in terms of quality from best to worst: HDMI, component, s-video/scart, composite).
Then connect audio to the receiver via optical spdif cable.

I plugged in my cable HDMI into my RX - V365 Yamaha reciever. and HDMI into my TV. I get video, but cannot get my attached (to reciever) speakers to play. Help


RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio. You need to connect the cable box also via spdif cable for audio to work. Look at the box if it uses optical spdif or coax spdif. If optical, you see that optical input on receiver is named DTV/CATV, so use also DTV HDMI for video. Coax spdif is named DVD, so in this case you will need to use DVD HDMI input.
Also you need to configure the inputs accordingly.
