Totally lost on basic setup

This is probably incredibly dumb, so take it easy on me.

I dropped my Dish Network for basic over the air antenna. I have an Onkyo TX-NR809 and a Harmony 900 remote. I have a Pioneer 5.1 surround ( http://www.ecoustics.com/products/pi...helf-speakers/ ).

I can't, for the life of me, get my Oknyo to receive the antenna signal so I can play the audio through the surround. I can't find the Harmony set up to accommodate this either.

What am I doing/missing? This probably important on another level because if I have brain damage, I need to get to an ER immediately...


Any help is appreciated after you pick yourself up off the floor from laughter.

do you get sound from the antenna to the TV? If so you have to setup audio out from tv to the receiver....that is if your TV supports that function.


what brand/model is the TV?

is there any inputs on back of tv that say OUT or audio Out?

There is a digital out that you can use to the Onkyo and you would then need to turn off the tv speakers.


So antenna into TV then Digital cable out to RECEIVER then HDMI back to the TV.

So I guess I need to get a Digital Audio Cable- is this the correct one? http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_i...seq=1&format=2

And just to make sure I'm following. The HDMI connection would stay the same; TV (HDMI 1) to the Onkyo TV Out ?

That's the right cable. You'll want to turn off the TV speakers in the TV Audio Setup Menu.

The TV HDMI 1 is an input from another video source besides your antenna so if you have something connected to provide a video signal to the TV, then keep that connection intact.

What is feeding the Onkyo that has you connecting an HDMI out of it to the TV? A DVD player?

If you are feeding another component video signal to the TV (DVD perhaps) via the Onkyo, you can use another audio connection out of that component directly to the Onkyo and bypass using the TV to process that component's audio. It will sound better if you do.

So, like this:

Cable =======> TV ===> TV Audio Out =======> Onkyo Audio In via optical cable.

DVD Video Out (HDMI) ========> TV HDMI 1 in.

DVD Audio out (digital coax or optical cable) ==============> Onkyo audio in
