Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver
I have the DVD player hooked up but when I turn the reciever to DVD it says coax and I need to switch to hdmi. How do I do this?? Also it is asking to unlock???
On the sony site it says the hdmi into the reciever is for the video, relayed by another hdmi to the tv, the audio will still be the coax
I personally would use the hdmi from dvd directly to the tv, and the coax from dvd directly to the reciever and call it a day

STRDG520 requires that the audio is from the digital optical or the digital coaxial to have sound. Just add digital audio from blue ray player to the amp and your good to go.

Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

I dont have the exact model you do, but on my sony receiver I have to enter the setup menu and define where the input is for the device I am using. For example I have to tell the receiver to use the optical audio input instead of the RCA Stereo. Otherwise its on default.
Also, you do know this model of reciever offers only pass-through audio on HDMI? that means no surround sound!!! Thats really silly but thats the specs for this model. To get surround you'll have to use optical. otherwise , with HDMI through this sony you are adding an extra component to tyour system with no benefit other than maybe power amplification.

The HDMI inputs are pass through inputs only. The reciever cannot recieve any sound signals through the HDMI's. The reciever acts as a selector switch for the HDMI inputs. Whatever input you have selected on the reciever is the one that is being sent through the output to your TV. The "unlock" display shows when there is no sound signal sent to the reciever. There is no code to unlock. This is the reciever's way of telling you that there is no sound being sent to it from that input. Since there is no sound being processed from the HDMI's, you need to hook up an additional audio cable from the device to the reciever (preferrably an optical cable). When the reciever recieves an audio signal, it will then "unlock" and you will get sound. The only purpose for the HDMI jacks on this reciever is to give you a bonus HDMI jack so you only have to use one on your TV. I know it is confusing. I had to look into this problem myself, so I'm happy to help. Higher end recievers will actually recieve and process sound signals from the HDMI's.
