ok I bought a vsx-74 but im having a hell of a time setting up the reciever.I cannot get sound to my tv using the hdmi cable. I am trying to use an optical cable for the sound and I have it into the reciever and it is accepting the signal I can tell by the text on the front of the reciever saying it is digital audio. I

I do know if I should be nervous wondering if it will just run straight to the speakrs and work fine or should I should Istill try to figure out how to get sound directly from my tv.

Anyways its late and im irritated sorry if my post makes no sense.

Sean

You're right it doesn't make any sense...

Are you trying to get sound from the
TV into your speakers? If so are you using a cable/sat box?

What television are you using?

Im trying to get sound from my cable box to my tv Thru the reciever. I have a motorola cable box . I do not have my speakers yet so I just wanted to test running everything threw the reciever. Does that make sense?

Okay Sean, purpose understood(no separate speakers yet), but the connections made are still a bit unclear(HDMI/optical?). Assuming that you do have the correct HDMI connections, if you want to send sound through your TV speakers rather than a separate speaker system, you have to set the HDMI sound in the AV setup menu to "Through".

fireforge, i cannot say what connections you have on the back of your cable box, but check to see that the 'hdmi' to the tv is not coming out of the cable box as a 'dvi' format.
Our newly acquired HD sat box has a dvi out BUT the setup included a dvi to hdmi connector for the output to the tv. That's fine for the video, but dvi does not carry audio. Even the setup guy overlooked this when he was here. Had us puzzled as to why we had video but no sound with the 'hdmi' connection.

If you don’t have your speakers yet, then why are you routing anything through the receiver? I’d just run cables from the sat receiver to the TV direct until you get your speakers.

My thoughts exactly, it doesn't sound like the reciever is driving anything.

If I understand you correctly, the only connection from the cable box is component and optical, and the only connection to the TV is HDMI. If that's the case, you're lucky you're getting video, much less audio! I'd guess the designers of the Pioneer figured there was no reason to convert audio out of the (primarily) audio device and send it to the video device, so it doesn't convert from optical to whatever the audio component of HDMI is. I'm surprised it converts from component video to HDMI video.

Just a stray thought. Receivers have settings/setup menus that require you to assign the connection. Have you gone into the setup menu on the receiver and applied the correct setting there? Check your manual for the details, but I'm guessing this could be the problem.
