I also turned the speakers off on the tv through the menu and still no sound. I tried the second coaxial spot and no sound either. I'm sure there is probably a simple solution, but I have no idea what it is! Help!
You're not giving enough information as to what equipment you are using. The receiver is a "docking station" for your devices, like a Blu-Ray Player and a set top box...(cable or sat.). Where do you get your TV signal from..a cable box? If so HDMI "out" of the cable box to "in" on the receiver, then "out" of the receiver to "in" on the TV. You can connect two "outs" from the cable box...one to the TV and one to the receiver. This will allow you to watch cable without having to turn on the receiver, if that is what you want to do.
