The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.

We have a Samsung Smart TV. We cannot get the signal and have installed a Digital Satellite Receiver. We have a Magnavox VCR and a sony DVD Player. We owuld like to attache the same to our TV and watch...


Hi there,

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.

Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.

As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).

Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).

Hope this helps...

I just purchased a Yamaha RX-V465 AV Receiver, and I cannot get any sound out of it except for when I have Tuner selected. I have my OPPO CD/DVD player hooked up via HDMI and via the stereo analog audio...


Also the test tone is working OK (Setup / Speaker Setup / Test Tone)? Have you used automatic speaker setup with the supplied YPAO microphone?
For HDMI, you need to configure the receiver to "take" out the audio from HDMI. Go to Setup / Function Setup / HDMI / Audio and select "Amp" to route the audio to receiver, or "Amp+TV" for audio to go both to receiver and to TV. You can also check in Options Menu / Signal Info that receiver has recongnized the sound and what format it thinks it is in.

SONY DVP-NS57P does not display video


If your TV has no input selector but has a video input, the TV probably "hides" the video input between the lowest channel on the tuner and the highest channel. That means if your tuner goes from channel 2 to channel 119, the video input will be between 119 and 2. The best way to see if this is the case is to slect channel 2 and then use the up/down channel selector to go down and see if you find the video input. Let me know if this works!

KVT 617 CD/DVD "reads" but only audio from tuner


Ok, so I called Crutchfield, where I had purchased the unit, and the guy there said this is a common thing. Believe it or not, it IS the wiring. The guy said the blue wire on the harness needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Kenwood unit. Which is weird, since it's usually color-coded. He said the blue wire is a 12-volt amp wire, which works with the tuner, but when you take it off tuner, it kills the 12 volts and so you get no sound.

I haven't fixed it yet to be sure it works, but I thought I'd post this anyway, in case someone else is waiting on this. I'll post again if it doesn't work. :0)
