Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Hi

I am hoping someone could help me. I just hooked up my speakers to a new Pioneer VSX-920-k and nothing comes out. I am pretty sure my connections are good. I ran the OSD configuration with the microphone but it wasnt showing my speakers being connected. Any help would be appreciated.

Check again to make sure that you have the speakers connected to the proper speaker posts (not zone 2 or 3) and if that does not solve it connect only the two front speakers and try again.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Thanks for the response. I am hooked up to the A zone and have the receiver set to the A. I just tried the front two speakers only and no sound at all.

Make sure the Mute is not on, if that does not solve it I think your unit may be faulty.

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

A question please..is there deterioration of quality if the STB's HDMI output is connected to the Receiver rather than directly to the TV(with the sound by Optical to the a/v)? I suppose what I'm trying to figure out is what's the best choice, if one has both options- STB to TV, or STB via A/V? Has anyone done tracked technical results? Ta.

STB's audio out is going to be the same quality over HDMI as it is over optical. You can use either one or both and it will give you the same signal. From a BluRay player this is a different story.

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Many thanks for this, yes Blu Ray will have the HD Audio issues. Sorry I wasnt clear, but will the Video effect be the same in both the instances; or can the A/V deteriorate the picture? Thanks again.
