How do I get the sound from my TV to play through this system?


Most audio receivers have types and several inputs available . The TV will likely have only two types. One will be the standard Red and White RCA connectors. Others may not have the RCA but a 2.5 mm headset connector. Some TV's will have an optical link connection. And a few will have a digital connection. The digital is a single RCA type connector but of a much better quality than the vintage.

The digital and optical; are the highest quality and would be the first choice for best audio/surround/Dolby. The RCA Red and White is next. The 2.5 mm headset is the least desirable.

Some receivers are programmable for the optical and digital inputs. You would need to reference the receiver manuals to determine the setup. The default setup will work but a little trial and error may be required to determine what input goes to what device. ie the DVD might be connected to the TV input (can be a little confusing)?

After connecting the best quality output of the TV into the receiver it is necessary to go into the TV setup menu to turn off the TV internal speakers and I would set the audio output to fixed. The variable output setting can be confusing where both the receiver and TV can set the volume.. The volume will now be set where the receiver can control the volume and not the TV,

Have no sound on my surround sound sony


Could be a number of things try each and test!

  1. Make sure the MUTE function has not been activated.
  2. Try turning up the volume level.
  3. Check that there are no headphones connected.
  4. Try setting the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver to a different Surround Sound mode. IMPORTANT: Verify that the source you are playing is encoded with Surround Sound audio. If not, the audio will be very difficult to hear using a Surround Sound setting. Set Surround Sound to OFF when playing a source that is not encoded with a Surround Sound signal.
  5. Check each speaker to make sure they are properly connected to the A/V receiver.
  6. Perform a Test Tone function to verify if the speakers are working correctly.
  7. Verify all external audio sources are securely connected to the appropriate inputs on the A/V receiver. NOTE: If the audio is being sent from a television to the A/V receiver, then it may be necessary to disable the internal speakers of the TV or set the audio output of the TV to FIXED or VARIABLE. If the audio output of the TV is set to VARIABLE, then you will need to increase the volume level of the TV.
  8. Make sure the correct audio input is selected on the A/V receiver.
  9. Confirm what type of HDMI devices are connected to the A/V receiver and then check the following:

    1. Test each one of the HDMI inputs on the A/V receiver to confirm that all of the inputs for the A/V receiver are working.
    2. Try a couple of different HDMI cables to verify there is not a bad set of cables.
    3. Unplug the video source from the A/V receiver and connect the source directly to the television. If there is still a problem with the audio, continue to the next step. If connecting the source to the TV corrects the sound issue, service will be needed on the A/V receiver.
  10. Verify the DEMO (demonstration) mode is not active.
  11. Change the ATT (attenuate) setting. NOTE: The procedure to change the ATT feature varies by model.
  12. Reset the A/V receiver back to factory specifications.

I have Panasonic SA-HT830V how do I get cable TV to work through speakers. Is it hooked up wrong


You need to connect your TV to your receiver and set the input of the receiver to match the input that the TV is connected to on the back of the receiver. This will make your receiver play the audio of what ever is playing on your TV, whether it is cable TV, Blurays, etc.

Unable to connect a blu ray dvd player to onkyo tx-sr605 via hdmi


Not sure what unable to connect means..but I will assume you have the correct cable.

First make sure you have plugged the from the HDMI cable from the DVD play into the IN 1 HDMI port on the back of your Onkyo

On the Receiver
Enter the Setup mode
Select INPUT OUTPUT ASSIGN
Next make sure the HDMI monitor out is set to YES on the Receiver
Monitor out
HDMI Monitor - YES

Next you need to assign the HDMI INPUT to DVD
Select INPUT OUTPUT ASSIGN
HDMI INPUT
DVD - IN1
CBL/SAT - IN2

This may be your issue.

Next step would be to verify your television input settings.

Nice receiver!

Best of luck!

Hi, I am having trouble connecting my Nintendo Wii to my Onkyo TX-SR507


Take the adapter cable from the Wii that plugs into the back of the Wii and converts the output(audio/video) into RCA style pin plugs, you will have: RED=right channel audio, plug it into any of the red audio INPUT on your Onkyo, then you will have WHITE=left channel audio, plug it into the other white INPUT jack next to the red plug on the Onkyo, then you will have YELLOW= video(picture) that will go directly to the yellow video INPUT on the back or side INPUTS of your TV.
Then when you want to play the Wii, set the input mode on the Onkyo to the inputs that you connected the red and white plugs into, then change the input on your TV to which ever the input is labeled on your TV in which you plugged the yellow plug into, you now will have sound comming from your Onkyo and the Wii up on the TV screen ready to play. Good luck!

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.

Dvd hookup


No need to play down...many guys are just as untechnical.

Players have three connections. Typically, your tv has similar inputs located on it and plug in goes color to color. Yellow is the video. Red is always the right speaker (on any system). White is the left channel. Insert a known good DVD and press play before you actually do the switchover so you can see it working in the next step. Now...set your TV to component input (it may be TV/Vid on your remote). Your TV manual should tell you how to do this. There may be more than one input...press that button again. It will come through.

If your tv doesn't have these connections, there are similar ones on your VCR...you can 'play through' by setting component input and then getting the VCR to send it on through on a TV channel. Start with the VCR tuning a channel and then switch over to component...Same deal...start the DVD first.
