1st, does the Sony have a dedicated subwoofer connection on the rear panel? 2nd, EQ's normally go in the INPUT and OUTPUT loops of a stereo receiver like your Sony. For example, a tape (or preamp) OUTPUT connects to the EQ's INPUT and the EQ's OUTPUT connects to your Sony's INPUT (tape IN or power amp IN). Remember...all outs feed in's and all in's feed outs.
Not knowing anything about your 'external' amp or how you want it to function the only thing you could do is feed it the analog stereo output of the SA-HE70 from one of its OUTs (Tape or VCR). It won't be volumed-controlled by the SA-HE70.
Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.
TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.
If it's thru Cable TV, your feed may need an amp. If your on FIOS or DSS, I'm stumped. How many boxes are in your house and how many locations are set up for TV and have no TV hooked up? If any, you need to try "F" caps at the empty locations, it causes signal loss. If all locations are terminated, the Cable company needs to ramp up the feed. They can do this via phone if you have Comcast or Bright House, otherwise, just call and ask. Hope this helps
You need a turntable pre-amp, or a receiver with turntable inputs.. The turntable is functioning properly, until recently no turntable had this built-in. Search ebay for turntable pre-amp and you should be good.
I had the same problem. Yamaha's web-site states that the zone 2 and zone 3 can only be driven from analog inputs (RCA stereo input jacks), not digital inputs. If your media center is hooked up with digital connections (such as HDMI), it will not feed the zone 2 or 3. Yamaha's web-site suggest hooking up both analog and digital feeds. It claims that the digital will drive the main zone and the analog will drive the other zones.
You can find it out by yourself. I have the same device; therefore, I know that this device has a "test" function. Just unplug rear (surround) speakers at first, then test the rest of the speakers if the amp lets you do it. Hook up one of the rear speakers you regularly use to rear left or to rear right in order to test each rear channel. If one of them turns off the amp, you'll be able to understand which side feeding resistor does not work. However, if the amp goes to standby mode as soon as you hook up one of those speakers, you can alternatively invert the relevant rear speaker's input ports for a while. (+ to -, - to +) Don't forget that you have to hook up the other rear likewise. This will allow you to cheat your amp for a while, and let you test your channels without taking care of ohms.
