Question about Sony STR-DE597 Receiver

1 Answer

How do I get video input from one source and audio from another?

So the other day I wanted watch the baseball game and have my music playing instead of the TV commentary. The Cable TV is on Video 2 input, and my music is on Video 1 input. How do I get my receiver to take the video input from Video 2 and play the audio input from Video 1?

    Right. You are overlooking something. The whole point of the receiver is for convenient switching between different sources. Here's my setup:

    1. A TV that has ONE component input (and crappy sound I might add).
    2. A DVD player - component out
    3. A Comcast DVR/HD cable box
    4. This STR receiver.

    A/V input from DVD player are going to DVD on the STR. A/V input from the Comcast cable box going to Video-2. Computer/ipod audio input going to Video-1. One video output going from my STR to my TV. Do you get it?

    If my TV had TWO component inputs, this would be a non issue. And BTW, of course I can listen to my STR with the television turned off.

I am confused and might be overlooking something obvious here. SO PLEASE do not think I am being disrespectful! IF you have everything connected properly, then your television is a separate device, independent of your Sony STR. You should be able to watch the picture with the Sony STR turned OFF. In turn, you should be able to LISTEN to the Sony STR with the television turned off. Although it isn't a lot of fun, it might be best to DISCONNECT all the cables (not your speaker wire) and go through the process of reconnecting everything.

    I apologize - I misread your complaint.

    Connect your Computer/Ipod to the MD/TAPE input. This is an independent circuit that when selected, will not interfere with your video ins-and-outs.

Unplug everything from the wall-outlets, and from other devices, and then reconnect all the wires.

Also, try a different TV (some newer computer-screens have "TV-input" and/or "HDMI-input" sockets).

I just got a toshiba theaterview sd dolby digital


That particular TV has both "component video" and standard video inputs. The DVD player might have a component video output (it will be three separate connectors of three different colors.) You will need a component video patch cable available at most electronics stores. If your DVD player doesn't have that input then use the standard video connector, yellow wire connects the video out on the DVD player to the Video input on the TV. The red and white wires are the left and right stereo audio connections they also make a cable for that. It will be color coded so make sure you match the codes from the output to the input on the TV. This set has two video inputs, you will get your best resolution if you use them instead of a "channel" input.

You will need the remote to select the video 1 or video 2 inputs. You can connect your DVD player and your game at the same time. Just use video 1 for the DVD and video 2 for the game. They require the yellow, red and white connector cables. Just follow the color code and match the colors with the jacks on the TV and other units. There is actually a third video input Video 3 behind the little door on the front panel. That would be convenient for the game if you want to remove it easily when not in use.

Push the menu button on the remote (big button in the middle) go to the video function and select either Video 1 for your DVD, Video 2 or 3 for your game.

The correct video input for what you want to view is important. Also if you don't have the user's manual it's available for free here: http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manuals/TV/2003/32A33_32_36A43%28E%29_A.pdf

You might also need to download an Adobe Viewer which allows you to read .pdf files.
That is also available for free at:

If you already have malware protection (viruses and the like) un-check the MacAfee box so you don't download that too.

What would work better for Marantz SR 4200 Apple Composite or component cable? In order to play music through the amp as well as watching videos


Component Video is a big step up the food chain in quality. Component Video inputs are for video only, not for audio. I don't see Component Video inputs on the Marantz SR-4200; only Composite and S-Video. S-video would be a step up from Composite and it carries analog stereo sound.

You don't give any clues as to the source's audio capabilities.

Digital Audio of either flavor is preferable. Grab the best possible TV-related audio from your Cable/Satellite box to the Marantz and run a pair of RCA audio cables to your TV just in case you want to watch the weather channel without hi-fi sound.

This tv is supposed to have closed captioning i cant get it on? it worked before i tried to set it up on set up but it doesnt highlight


To use Picture in picture you must have 2 different video sources hooked up and active.  One could be a built in tuner (if it has one), a vcr, a dvd player, possible a computer, a video camera, or some other sevice.  There might be an exeption out there I have not seen, but normaly you have to have at least one other device sending a signal, two if you do not have an internal tuner.  Your TV will switch between these two sourses for it's small and large picture in picture images.
an example with an internal tuner.
picture one is the live baseball game you've tuned in on channel 45 (example only) and the other is the DVD of "Titanic" your wife is insisting on watching during the play-offs.... 
an example without a built in tuner would be to have the cable box or tivo playing your baseball game on one input, your computer on the other (or a DVD of titanic, or what ever)

Hope this helps

Insert game disk and horizontal lines move fast on screen ???????


Sounds like your TV has multiple video inputs. Make sure the TV is set to the right channel or input. I know on ours if I hit the TV-input button on the tv remote I can change from inputs like s-video, video, cable etc and the Wii only displays properly on one of them.

Rca tru flat tv has a red picture


Is your video input (from cable or satellite or fiber optic, etc.) coming from a coaxial cable, a component cable (red, green, and blue connectors), or an RCA cable (yellow connector for video)?

If you can, try an alternate input method and see if that makes a difference. Does it happen when watching DVDs or tapes, or when playing video games, or just when watching television?

Sony psp slim component cable trouble


Okay the cables you bought they have five plugs. I assuming your tv doesn't have component input only RCA connections (RED, WHITE, YELLOW). SO in that case you bought the wrong jacks. You may want to keep them anyway if you upgrade your tv. Because these "component" cables is the only way you can play video games on the big screen and also has to be hd, but it also will be able to play music, view pics, and watch videos. But that's a different subject.

You need to buy RCA cables for your slim. Keep in mind though you will only be able to watch movies, pics, and music. You won't be able to play video games. Once you have those it's not hard to connect. All you do is from the XMB menu go to display settings click on "switch video output" and it should connect from there. Any more problems please feel free to ask.

Game video input enabling


Dear krismedia

You should first confirm that Audio/Video output cable from the hifi is connected to the TV , then you should connect the game console to the input section in ur hifi system. And finally see if the TV is in AV mode and also see if the HIFI is detecting in the input mode.
