Instead of connecting each device (sky&dvd rec.) to the TV separately, I would simply hook up the sky to dvd recorder (connect the sky output and dvd recorder input), and then connect the dvd recorder output (must be called "play out") to one of the available recorder inputs (which could be a dvr, an empty tape input, etc)of your amp. However, you'll still have to establish a feedback between your dvd recorder and your amp. Therefore, if the dvd rec. supports it, you'll have to hook up the rec.out, which is on your amp.,to rec.in on your dvd recorder. After all these audio connections, you will only need to make a video connection among the sky, dvd rec., and tv. Get a video cable to hook up the sky video output to your dvd recorder's video input, then do the same thing between the dvd recorder's tv output and tv.

How do I connect a graphic equalizer to a Cambridge audio 851 amplifier?

I found only an 851A amp - I hope it is what you have or very similar. You can add an equalizer (or tape recorder for that matter) easily by making use of the amplifier's "Record In" & "Record Out" jacks. The amplifier's "Record Out" jacks should be patched to the equalizer's "In" jacks and the amplifier's "Record In" should be patched to the equalizer's "Out" jacks.

On the amp, select your source (1, 2, etc.) as usual. Press the "Rec In" button to divert the stereo source signals to the equalizer for customized shaping before being amplified - press again to bypass the equalizer and send the source stereo signals directly to the amplifier - and speakers.

Just set up my brand new cambridge audio azur 650a amplifier. It keeps cutting out with the protection light blinking three times indicating "overvoltage" according to the manual. I'm using it at...

Just make certain that the connections are all good with no wires touching. If it still doesn't perform after that return it to where you bought it and get a new replacement or your money back.

My Cambridge azur 540C compact disc player won't read CDs.

Hi...

After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens.
If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2
and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab.
If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.

Protection snaps into action intermittently

I don't think the pin or third prong on your power cord would be the problem, but I would make sure that all of your speaker wires and connections going to your amp are not shorting out against eachother.


I hope this helps you out.

Wife moaning at sound delay.......why.....

The sound delay would not be caused by hooking amp up but must be a software problem in sky box. Try to get an off air station with a antenna and see if the problem persists.The dvd recorder should see your sky box output first then out from recoder to tv.Then use tv audio out to amp,or tv audio out to amp.
