I am able to connect a CD player, a turntable, a cassette deck and an 8 track player to my TX-SR500 Onkyo receiver and to play all of them. However I am unable to record music to my CDs from any of these sources. What do I need to do to record using analog system?
I was able to record from these sources in the past using a splitter. At that time my sound system was coordinated with my television. Currently, my sound system is independent of my TV and is at a different location.

Re: recording from other sources
The tape outputs is what you need to use. If there is not output on those tape outs, you have a preamp problem I'm afraid. I have seen these go out in the past when someone hooks up an output to the tape outputs and blows out the preamp IC. Good Luck

instead of plugging your turntable into "phono in" on the amp just try a regular auxilary input like aux ,video, or cd. sounds like the turntable output isnt like the old ones and may be just a regular output.
The Denon will act just like a standard tape recorder. It should have an audio in, for recording. If that socket is connected to the audio out of a tape socket on your receiver, the Denon will pick up the signals that are sent to your receiver from whatever source. All you have to do is follow the instructions for recording on the Denon then. If you have lost the user manual for it, it's free on-line.
your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary
Just like most contemporary AV Receivers, there is no built-in Phono preamp in this unit so if your TT doesn't have one internally, you'll need to get an aftermarket Phono Preamp somewhere to PREamplify and frequency-balance the minute Phono Cartridge output to a useable Line Level you can send to any available Line Level input on the Receiver (CD, Aux, whatever) .
Turning any receiver off will erase the settings - there is no backup battery (Onkyo uses Battery Free Memory Backup) and the length of time depends on the capacitor charge. Why not just leave the receiver plugged in? Stand-by mode uses a negligible amount of power - enough to keep the capacitors charged and the LED on the front panel on.
I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1.
According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected.
Hope this helps.
