    Hey guys, Just got my Sony STR-DH540 receiver from a guy on Ebay. Said it was a display model. Just got done setting it up and everything seems to be fine except I think 3 out of the 5 HDMI inputs are bad? If I plug my apple tv into an HDMI port that isn't "Game" or "Cable/Sat" I get no...

     I'm fairly new to the world of home audio so I'm looking for a little advice from you knowledgeable folks.  First, a little background. My only experience with home theater systems to date was my Onkyo 5.1 system that included the receiver. It only cost $250, and compared to the speakers on my...

     So I'm planning out a build for this summer. So I'm starting to get all my ducks in a row, and absorbing as much info as I can to help make some informative decisions. I'm making a home theatre/family room in my basement, the room is a bit of an odd rectangle, and the home theater is going...

    I just got this receiver around Christmas time and after a few days I started losing the audio and video signal to my TV. I also notice the Dolby symbol on the front of the receiver goes off and on corresponding with the loss of the audio and video. Wondering if this is a known issue with this...

     I just bought a new receiver and TV this weekend:   Samsung UN40F6300AF television Sony STR-DH540   I bought the TV largely because it supports ARC/SEC, because I want to simplify my remote and cable management.   For video inputs I only have: a Roku, an xbox, an indoor antenna, and the...

     I've just bought a set of Tannoy Mercury F4 Custom Floorstanders along with the matching Custom Centre. I need to get an AV amp that will provide hdmi passthrough on standby and will do the speakers justice. However, what will work well with the speakers is baffling me. I think I've narrowed...

     I am about to do the calibration on my new receiver.  It's the first receiver I have ever owned so I am new to all this.  I am a bit confused as to what my subwoofer should be set to during calibration.   Should the power be set to auto or on?   Should the phase be set to 180 or 0 av/life...

     I have bought a Sony STR- DH540 and will be using it with my PC and 5.1 speakers and subwoofer.  Can anyone explain how to get the easy set up on my monitor please.  The manual does not explain it well enough for me.      Which of the many HDMI slots on the back of the receiver do I plug my...

    My brand new sony str dh-540 receiver just stopped working all the sudden. It was played for a few hours at loud volume (about 55 out of 73) and all the sudden turned off and won't stay on any more. The green "on" light will turn on but nothing else and then after like 10 seconds the green...

     I just setup my first HT ever and started playing around with audio settings. One of the settings that I can't manage to tell the difference when adjusting is the crossover.   In my receiver, I set speaker pattern to 3.1 with main & center speakers as "small" and crossover of 200hz (just for...

     To make a long story short, I tried 2 of the same receivers and they both did the same thing. When hooking up my PS3 to anyone of the HDMI IN ports there would intermittently be small green horizontal lines flickering across the screen. I tried changing every setting I could in the PlayStation...

     Matched with a pair of Focal chorus 705.   Witch one of these will have the best sound quality, and clearer sound, specially at not very loud volume (i dont want to hear noise)   Thanks you,   and   Merry Christmas
