SOURCE: no audio input from video modes

First of all, there is no audio information on the video lines. These are typically used together with the audio lines to complete the interface between the source(TV, DVD,VCR,etc) and your receiver...accordianman

How do I remove the decoder off from the tuner? I can not get audio.

Hi, Not sure what exactly you mean.

Try turning input knob on Receiver or press equipment button like Sat/cable or DVD on remote.

If still no sound look for a button "Input mode" or "6 Channel" eg on receiver and select analogue, digital etc or disable 6 channel mode.

Make sure speaker wires are connected and not short circuit. Also look for speaker button, On some receivers you can disable speakers.or select A & B

If sound was working before you probably just press or disable sound settings on receiver.

I cant connect my Denon avr 682 to my pc via optical??

I would change your setting on your receiver to digital. its probably on analog. look for a button that says that. You might have to change your input have a look at the rear and see if it says, DVD optical or CD and choose that input.

When i choose digital surround mode, there is no icons of surround loudspeakers, and there is no digital 5.1 surround sound. i have to press button DVD 6 CH INPUT. it is analog connection. sometimes when...

First of all, you don't identifiy the hardware.

Second, DVD 6 CH INPUT is analog so how would the device KNOW if all 6 channels are present? ONLY a device with the required 6 analog channels should be connected there. That input typically bypasses ALL internal digital processing.

Elaborate more on the digital source(s) that are failing and assure us you have looked at/exhausted what the manual says for setting them up.

I have 2 good qaulity heybrook speakers and have tried everything to connect them properly such that both play sound when the tv / dvd is on. Both speakers work perfectly one at a time and both work...

You're guessing. That is exactly the wrong thing to do. Get the manual.

"[D]vd 6 channel input" is for a 6-channel analog input as the name implies. I doubt you even have a source that HAS 6 analog channel outputs.

Speakers are OUTPUTS of the amplifers' speaker posts. Any one can work ANYwhere.

And that bi-wire capability, IF the speakers have it - pretend it isn't there.

Have new E370VL hooked up to Dish Network via coax. The picture jumps/blips? Connections are tight. Help.

This can happen when there is radio interference near the coaxial cables. Sometimes the interference is behind walls. The solution is to try a different combination of modulation and channel than what the DISH receiver is current set.

The DISH menu screen for this setting is Menu-6-1-5. With dual-tuner receivers, typically "TV 1 Out" is the TV that is connected in the same room as the receiver is located. "TV 2 Out" is the tuner that is fed to the remote TV via backfed coaxial signal.

All that needs to be done is to change the channel and mode going to the effected TV to something different. If your channel/mode is currently set to Air/60, try changing it to Cable/73. When you change the mode/channel in the DISH receiver, you need to set the remote TV to the same mode and channel.

Keep in mind that with some TV companies like VIZIO, they call their "Air" mode "Antenna". With VIZIO's the TV must be set on TV input and then go into the Menu to the Settings, Tuner Settings. Change mode type to match what you are trying on the DISH receiver, exit the VIZIO menu and manually enter the channel number.

Eventually with trial and error, you will find a mode/channel combination that isn't effected by your particular environmental interference.

Would like to hook up two recievers to push all my speakers comfortably. I have a pioneer vsx d490 and a sherwood rd 6500. How wud i accomplish this?

I think you mean Pioneer VSX-D409.

Since the two receivers are similar and capable of driving everything else in the room, I guess you want to treat one receiver like a basic amp, like for a passive subwoofer, right?

However, still guessing your intent...

The VSX is a basic 5-channel amp (5 x 100w) but only has digital multichannel inputs. It has optical and coaxial digital inputs and an optical digital output.

The Sherwood has coaxial and optical digital inputs and no digital output, but it has analog inputs, so it would be easier to selectively use any or all of its amplifiers, which are about the same as the Pioneer's (gotta read the fine print - Sherwood uses a 6-ohm load instead of 8-ohm to get the numbers).

Choose the one you like to use for the control (master). Run its Sub Out to the other receiver's AUX input using an RCA splitter to feed both input channels. Attach the sub to one set of front speaker terminals. Configure theat receiver for NO SUB so it won't steal LFE from theis channel. Designate the FRONT speakers as Large.

Setup would be tricky because you have to choose a volume setting on the slave amp and stick with it. It might get changed after you set the levels and negate the setup efforts. OTOH, you would have the flexibility to change it independently if desired.

My $.02... If subwoofer power is all you need, why not just get a nice Carver 2-channel amp on eBay (2x100w would suffice), bridge it to 200 watts and blow the house up, figuratively? Then you could redeploy or sell the unused receiver.

No sound when using 6 channel analog inputs

2 potential issues, first make sure the dvd player audio menu setup is set correct for 5.1 outputs, not DTS or Dolby Digital bitstream, can be difficult but read the user manual under sound options if possible, second be sure the receiver is set to act as the "amplifier only setting " i.e. DVD 6 channel input, maybe EXT IN , not sure what pioneers mode is, but all you need to follow is the dvd player is outputing 6 channel signal paths, and the receiver is acting as six amps, unless of couse you are using a subwoofer line out.

Left from speaker not working- Yamaha HTR-5940-6.1 channel

Redbird,

What do you have in the "multi channel input" jacks on the rear of the receiver? Those inputs Right, Left, Center, Surround R+L, and Sub are used when selecting 6 channel mode. They bypass the receivers surround processor board.
