Question about KLH R7000 Receiver

2 Answers

KLH R7000 I never ever throw away manuals but this one I can't find. I have a DVD player and it has coaxial output. where on the reciver do I put it. I see the coax in the back on the upper left side but it has yellow inards so I was under the impression that is was for video only? for the 6.1 do I have to only use the 6.1 RCA jacks on the reciever or can I use the ole fashion wire inputs? thanks for the help and great site!

Nope. That's the coaxial digital audio input. Thats the one to use for your dvd players digital audio output.

The previous poster has it WRONG. Presuming your equipment follows industry-standard color-coding conventions, an RCA-type coaxial jack with a yellow insulator is for COMPOSITE VIDEO. An RCA/coax connector for digital audio would have an ORANGE insulator. It is important to NOT mix these up, as the signals are not even close to compatible -- and cross-connecting them might even cause damage to one or both units. Your DVD player near-certainly has a COMPOSITE VIDEO output, and almost as surely, a coaxial Digital Audio output. Similarly, your receiver near-certainly has a COMPOSITE VIDEO input. But it may or may not have coaxial Digital Audio input; and even if it does, it remain questionable whether or not you'd want to use it (unless the DACs in the DVD player are particularly bad, I'd guess not). It is also likely that both your receiver and your DVD player have either S-Video or "componennt" (or both) video inputs/outputs. If so, this would be the preferable method to feed video from the DVD player to the receiver, as the signal quality will be better maintained. OTOH, if your TV/Monitor does not also have Component and/or S-Video inputs, _and_ your receiver does not do transcoding, then you will need to use whichever connection scheme represents "the highest common denominator" between all the units.

Component video signal between KLH DVD8350 & Vizio 32" PlasmaHDTV

If the Visio TV has more than one input, don't forget to use its remote to make sure the correct input is selected. It probably wouldn't hurt to put a DVD into the player, confirm its running from the front panel counters) and let it keep running as you troubleshoot. At least then you'll know there is an active video source once you find it. Another thing you can try is to put in a music CD, if the player accepts these too (most do). Then when you get the TV set to the right input, at least you'll hear music, and can then go back to trying a DVD.

I know you're using component video, so remember that unlike HDMI devices, the TV is unable to switch to the correct source automatically. So it may just be that you've never had to switch the TV's input source before. Good luck! :-)

Klh r7000 no sound

Like I wrote, I had a similar problem with popping and then no audio for an extended period of time. I found the solution on another site,

Apparently the solder joints are weak, and just as the blog described when I opened up the receiver I saw the same scorch marks from overheating. Just as the blog described, I added solder to each of the joints in the photo and have had no problem ever since.

I am no solder expert, this is my 2nd time, but all I did is build up each of the joints and I have been listening to music, playing movies in surround sound with no problems, no popping for the last 2 weeks.
