Tinkering won't work. HT510??? Not HTR510? Maybe that's what you meant.

All AVR's have settings for individual speaker channel levels and distances from the listening position.

The magnetic cartridge preamp should work with the turntable, as presumably it will have a magnetic cartridge in it. The only reason that the amp states "magnetic" is that some very old turntables have ceramic cartridges which should not be connected to that terminal. Even if the turntable had a "ceramic" it could be replaced with a magnetic one!

Chances are that Time Warner is just plain wrong. That's what you get with free tech supp....oh, uh right. scratch that.

Your receiver seems to be receiving a 2-channel digital audio signal (PCM) from the cable HD box. With this type of input signal, you can't select Dolby Digital on the receiver.

If you have a Scientific Atlanta 8300 (or a closely similar model):
Press [Settings] button on the remote twice. This will open the General Settings menu. Go to "Audio: Digital Out" and the select Dolby Digital (by hitting [-> Move Right]).

If you have another type of cable box, just review the settings menus until you find something relevant to digital audio out and avoid PCM, stereo or "down conversion", but look for Dolby Digital, DTS or "All".

Please keep in mind, that when connecting devices via HDMI cables, your box may decide it's smarter than you and reset the format of the digital audio back to PCM. This is some possibility of this occurring if the cable box or TV is unplugged and plugged back in.

If you have problems, add the cable box make and model and let me know.

If you have the original remote
check the display button or dimmer button.
If you don't get any illumination from the display screen, that means that display florescent is at the end of life needs to be serviced.

Hello Brenda
Where do you want to hook your ONKYO and with what you want to connect it to.
There are several steps and a lot of devices can be connected to the Onkyo.
1 Speakers are to be connected on the rear side of the device. as it shows in and on the Instruction manual If you have it.
And for other devices each device has its way of connectors.
Optical to optical and RCA to RCA ...
IT depends on What kind of devices you have.

Hello Brian
1: connect your fire tv to any HDMI input on your Onkyo AVR.
Make sure you know which input and select it by the remote. or by the selector keys on the AVR front panel.
2: The HDMI output from the Onkyo AVR, goes to the HDMI input of your TV...
I hope its Clear.
Good Luck Plugging HDMI Cables.
