Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver

Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 no sound

Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 not getting any sound. Told that this receiver will not work with the instructions as shown in Receiver manual which was showing the use of HDMI cables. Cost me over $100 to get the Blue ray to work without the HDMI cables using the Geek Squad. They only used Coaxial and a Optical. Does this mean that the Sony manual is wrong or have I just been kidded.?

The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.

    When you say connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the "receiver" for your audio, what if you don't have a receiver? And by receiver, I take it you mean a receiver that's purpose is to run a surround speaker system through? I only have three components - a Comcast high def control box, and Olevia 32" TV with one HDMI port (5 y/o) and a new Sony S3100 blu ray player with wi-fi.and Netflix built in among others. TV works fine when watching it via comcast hi-def box, but blu ray player only shows pic, no audio.. Any advice for this set up?

It sounds like the BDP unit is set to downmix PCM to the Optical Digital Audio output (the default). You need to change it to something like Dolby Digital. Crack the manual and look at all the digital audio settings you need to choose.

No sound coming from Sony Receiver STR-DG510?


Sounds like you are pretty close with this one. If you select fm tuner do you get audio. If not you may have the speakers on the wrong a-b setting. Make sure the audio from your cable box is not muted or turned down.

I think you have to run a separate audio line from the dvd to the 510, because the HDMI is only passive

No picture?


I called sony, even though the manuel shows that you can use a component wire to hook up the set top box and hdmi for the tv and dvd sony claims that you can not do this. The cable box must also be wired with an hdmi cable going into the video 2 port.sony claims it doesn't work using component and hdmi together because the receiver is unable to up convert. I hope this helps. I have not tried it yet (i'm at work) we'll see what happens when i get home.
