Re: does the pioneer sx315 receiver work with the samsung...
From memory, this amp does not have HDMI.
If this is the case, use an optical fibre cable for your connections.(Audio)
And if you want every thing to run through your amp you will also need to use component video cables (red/green/blue)
I would suggest the following.
Blue Ray to TV with HDMI.
HD Reciever to TV with HDMI.
TV AUDIO OUT to AMP with Optical Fibre.
This way, whatever is displayed on the tv, the sound will come throught the amp.
Hope this helps.

It depends what you mean by "audio"? Or more precisely what audio from where? For example if a DVD player is connected only to the Pioneer then when the power is switched off, the Pioneer can not route audio from that to the TV. The best way of connection is to have everything running into the TV and then feeding the audio out via an optical cable connected between the TV and Pioneer. This will send high quality sound to your receiver when its on, but allow you to watch and hear sound without it.
There are two way to do this. 1. Connect all your devices individually to the Pioneer receiver. Doing this allows you so have different sound settings for each input. A reason you might want this is that your DVD will need a DTS or Dolby sound setting so that you get the best audio from your DVD, whereas your TV may only be outputting stereo audio. In this case you would set your Pioneer to a stereo setting. 2. Connect your devices to the Sharp display, then connect the audio output of the Sharp to a free audio input on the Pioneer. Your Sharp LED TV has two ways to do this:a. If you have a digital capable Pioneer sound system, connect using the "Digital Audio Output". You will need a Toslink (Optical) cable for this connection.b. If you only have analog capabilities in your Pioneer sound system, you must use the 3.5mm (1/8 Inch) analog audio output from the Sharp TV to stereo RCA (red and white plugs that are most commonly supplied with home theatre product).
If the power to the outlet is still good, then I would suspect the power amp IC or output transistors are shorted, keeping the power from coming on. It's also possible that one or more of your speakers are bad feeding back to the receivers output connectors, especially if you were running speakers with a different power rating or impedance that your set is designed for. Hope this helps.
close captioning on a tv is usually only available for use when the antenna inputs are being used. it has no way to process a cc from an auxiliary source. you should have the capability of cc with a menu item in the cable or satellite box and with the subtitle command in your dvd. good luck
