    I have a yamaha receiver and only 2 speakers that are working on left/right.  I have 4 other speakers to hook up for surround sound.  Do I need to buy an optical cable in order to work?

    Cool video!… I would like to know how I can hook up a modern sound bar to this particular receiver instead of using typical speakers… Since this receiver has no HDMI connection how would I do that?  Thanks!

    I think it maybe easier and better to buy a new av receiver with hdmi inputs- makes installation of various devices so much easier and cleaner.

    People who go through this kinda video are not very savvy with technology. It's better if you actually hook up all those wires instead of just talking about them. Just a thought….thank you.

    I have a old Yamaha Stereo RX595 Receiver, no HDMI. It is hooked up to a box Subwoofer. Everything was working with the old TV, (not a flat screen) until I  bought a new HD TV. Everything was unhooked at that time and I didn't hook it up the first time. Now I have the CD playing on the dvd but only 1 speaker is working. On the TV only the TV speakers work, nothing else. On the Cassette, only 1 speaker works, and on the Phono turntable both speakers work fine. I have a Dish Dvr, to a Magnavox Dvd/Vcr player recorder, and I have a JVC Dolby TD-R421 Cassette HX Pro System and the Phono in that order in my center. I have a new LG HD Tv. Only the Dish Dvr and Tv have HDMI. I am using thr red, white and yellow cables. I don't know how to hook up any of this except the phono. What am I doing wrong? Please explain as I don't have any knowledge of hooking these things up together. Do I have to have the subwoofer hooked up if I have the 2 speakers? Please help, thanks.

    Rhandy hi and thanks for watching the video. Judging from what you wrote, the speaker clip-ons you've described must be connected to an amplifier similar to the one in this video. The speaker OHMs need to match the OHMs of the amplifier. If your VIZIO TV has red-white AUDIO OUT you can connect that to the amplifier. Based on what you've asked, without an amplifier we don't think you'll be able to produce sound on the speakers.

    Please know, surround sound receivers of different manufacturers/models often will have functionality differences. What works on one model of receiver won't always function on a competing unit. Typically you can connect your DVD via HDMI to any of the HDMI inputs. Often times manufactures will label the input (HDMI DVD) on the back so when you are looking at the front panel & selecting a device you know which input is for which device. Its unlikely HDMI DVD input will work w/composite AV DVD out

    I have a multiple input and ouput type. it is necessary that if my input is in HDMI dvd, my output is in HDMI dvd also? or i can make HDMI dvd Input to composite AV dvd output?

    There are many different ways to make connections between components and yes the method you've posted works fines. It's not always the "optimal" method because there's a risk of the video picture and the audio track not syncing perfectly but its a solution that does work and if its working for your situation then that's awesome!

    I sort of did this..I have my component cables directly connected to tv and the audio to the avr. Avr doesnt have component cables so this way i get crisp video on tv and audio from avr. Not bad for my system right?

    Those 3 are Digital Coaxial Audio inputs, each is associated with a video input. So, rather than using a Red / White RCA analog audio connection cable you could use a 75ohm coaxial audio cable, its much like Digital Toslink only a different method for connecting a digital audio signal.

    If your AV receiver upscales then run your XBox 360 component cables to the AV receiver and then connect your AV receiver HDMI output to an available HDMI input on your TV

    If the source material is not presented in DolbyDigital (AC-3) signal or a standard PCM digital source then Dolby Digital will not be available to you, this could be a reason for the issue you described. Using Pro Logic or Dolby 3 stereo might create a similar effect when Dolby Digital is not available.

    i have a harman kardon avr 35rds and my smart tv has only a optical audio out, the receiver that i have has also an input of that optical audio, so far so good . the receiver has also that input settings like :dolby digital, pro logic,3 stereo theater etc . with the audio optical input i can play the sound through all of that except the dolby digital which is the most important for what i want. every time i select the dolby digital it shows me the coaxial word there, so what to do ?

    Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical / Toslink perform very similar functions, to relay a source's audio signal to the AVR/ Surround SOund receiver. A 75ohm (or RG6) cable should do the trick just fine for making this connection. Think of Digital Coaxial in the way of RED/WHITE RCA audio, both the RCA and the Coaxial produce the same end result (generally speaking) with the coaxial cable producing the cleaner, better digital audio signal

    Because we don't know the make and model of your AVR we recommend using an RCA cable to make the connection. We posted a diagram for you on our website. You can view the diagram and post more questions there by clicking the page link right below this particular YouTube video and scroll to the bottom of that newly opened website page. Thank you for watching.

    Yes. Typically on the back of most Bluray players are "audio only" outputs which you connect a wire from the Bluray audio output to the surround sound receiver. If you would like more assistance with this please provide the make and model of the receiver and BR player or email us via our website. Thanks

    If you are watching a program on your TV and if you hear audio coming from your TV speakers….you can also connect a Digital Optical cable from a TV's audio output (if your tv has a digital optical output) and connect it to a receiver for audio. Some TVs only have RCA Red/White audio output which can be used as well. Some TVs do not have an audio output.

    Yellow typically = a Video only signal (aka: composite video / no audio). A Yellow could be either an input or it could be an output. For example, DVD player (older type or some Non Blu-Ray type) will have a Yellow output.OR, on the back of a receiver it might be a "monitor" output. Yellow is where the video comes from. The Yellow connector reproduces the least quality video image.

    This is one of a few common ways to connect a Home Theater Surround Sound Receiver. Some people like to vary their connections based on their unique situation and preferences. An example of one such variation would be to connect your TV Set-top box directly to the TV using either HDMI or Component video and then connecting that same Set-Top box to the Home Theater Surround Sound Receiver using a Digital Optical (Toslink) cable. The variations lets you hear sound via your TV speakers.
