Re: There is no tv slot on the Onkyo
You simply take and audio sample from the Tv to the Onkyo. You could use tape or CD input on the Onkyo it really doesn't matter. Just make sure you have audio out from the Tv and set the Onkyo menu to look at the input you select. If you choose to put it into the CD, make sure you select CD to listen to it. Assuming of course you have the speakers hooked up to listen to the Onkyo.

The Onkyo TX8011 is a Stereo Receiver. Two ways to connect:
1) The HD Cable box should have an audio out (typically red and white). Connect this to the Obnkyo CD input (red and white). The volume may be controlled with the Cable box remote or Onkyo remote. The TV volume may be muted or ON.
2) Connect LCD TV's audio out to Onkyo TX8011's CD input.
This is not a great way to set up, as the TV volume, when moved high, will attenuate (over load) the amplifier, leading to a jarring sound on the speakers. To avoid this, the TV volume should be ALWAYS FIXED low.. say about 30%. Only the Onkyo's volume should be adjusted while watching.
Your reciever has three digital optical inputs so, what it comes down to is how many thing do you want to hook up and what input/otput do you have on your TV. Best case scenario would be to hook your cable box directly to your TV Via HDMI out, if you have HD, on your cable box to Sat/cable input on your TV. Next best would be using componenet cables for video and digital optical for audio. Last would be RCA(yellow, white and red, from Cable box to TV input. Then, you would connect your TV to receiver via(best) digital optical, or RCA. You can try to patch the video through the reciever using component or RCA to TV/DBS on receiver then out to TV but. alot of times you will lose the video in the transfer and it uses more cables, thus more margiin for error. You would set your TV menu to cable/sat and your reciever to which ever input you choose.
Get the audio from the same place the TV does - your cable/satellite box. It will have an RCA Audio Out pair. Run it to any available input such as CD, Tape 1 In, Tape 2 In, Video 1 or Video 2 In.
If you're already using that output to theTV just get a pair of RCA cable splitters and share it with the receiver. That way you can watch TV and listen through its own speakers (news and such) or turn the TV volume down and select the input on the receiver for better audio.
What you DON'T want to do is actually run audio through your TV and its questionable audio electronics into your hi-fidelity receiver.
If both speakers work okay on other inputs .Then cable from pre-amp to amp and main amp are okay. If phone RCA jacks go directly to electronics board .Then its possible solder on phono jacks need to be resoldered or other connections in that section.If unit needs repair you can also purchase a phono preamp from radioshack hook up your and use it on other good inputs such as CD etc..Please note PHONO inputs are only for turntables .If a non turntable input such as CD,TAPE,TV Etc is used on PHONE .Then you will overdrive this input .
Make sure the phonograph is connected to the Phono Connectors. Hook up your CD recorder to the tape. The play connectors on the CD recorders can connect to the tape play connectors on your stereo. The record connectors on your CD recorder connect to the record outputs on the tape connectors on your stereo. You can also connect you CD recorder to the VCR connectors if you are using an audio tape as your source. All of the outputs and inputs are the same level except the phono.
you can go about this many ways.depending on what you have to work with.are you useing a satilite or cable box?if so assuming they have audio/video out just send the audio to the amp and the video cable to the tv.u could use the aux or the tape in.just put the dvd in the other input aux or tape in.dont matter which.if you dont have a cable box your tv must have some kind of audio out to run to the amp.it can be a rca out or simply a headphone jack.you will need a headphone jack too rca plug cable if you have a headphonejack on your tv.hope i could be of help.
Are your DVD and cable actually going to the Onkyo first and then to the TV? I am assuming it is, if you listen to the Onkyo when watching a DVD or cable.
The Onkyo receiver you have has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output.
Does your Xbox360 have an hdmi output and that is what you want to connect to the Onkyo? Some do and some don't.
If your Xbox has a hdmi output and you are already using the 2 hdmi inputs on the Onkyo, you can not connect the Xbox using the hdmi, you have no more hdmi to connect to, so you must go thru one of the other inputs of the Onkyo.
The hdmi has the video and audio together, the other video options do not. you would need to run seperate audio cables as well. Your Xbox should have a composite video (yellow RCA jack) output or a component video (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green RCA jack) output.
When you connect the Xbox thru, lets say the composite video of the Onkyo , you will also need to connect the audio from the Xbox to the Onkyo on the same input. It should be right next to the yellow RCA jack or right under it. They are 2 RCA jacks, one red and one white.
You will then need to connect the composite output of the Onkyo to the composite input of the TV.
When connecting like this, you will also need to select the composite input on your TV with your remote for your TV. Your TV should have an input button that lets you go thru all the different inputs to it.
you can also use the component video from the Xbox if it has that. But you must also run the audio to the Onkyo as well to the corresponding audio inputs of the component video input on the Onkyo.
This may sound a little confusing, but remember that the hdmi has the audio and video in one cable, the other video options do not, so you must run additional cables for the audio to the Onkyo from the Xbox.
Also remember whichever video you use from the Xbox to the Onkyo, you must also run that same video from the Onkyo to the TV and then switch the TV over to that input when you want to watch the Xbox on the TV
Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.
Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.
Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.
If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.
Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.
