Introduction
Safety information
Congratulations on your purchase of a high-quality
Insignia product. Your NS-R5101AHD-A represents
the state of the art in AV Home Theater Receiver
design and is designed for reliable and trouble-free
performance.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC
SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO
RAIN OR MOISTURE.
CAUTION:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK,
DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK). NO
USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER

PERSONNEL.
WARNING
AVIS
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE
NE PAS OUVRIR
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an
equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the
presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within
the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient
magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to
persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user to the presence of important
operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in
the literature accompanying the appliance.
Important safety instructions
Ventilation
Caution
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in
accordance with these instructions.
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of your
system and to protect it from over-heating.
The openings should never be blocked by placing
your system on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar
surface. This system should not be placed in a built-in
installation such as a bookcase or rack unless correct
ventilation is provided or these instructions have
been adhered to.

Power cord
Caution
We recommend that most appliances be placed
upon a dedicated circuit—a single outlet circuit
which powers only that appliance and has no
additional outlets or branch circuits. Check the
specification page of this manual for power
requirements.
Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall
outlets, loose or damaged wall outlets, extension
cords, frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked
wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these
conditions could result in electric shock or fire.
Periodically examine the power cord. If its
appearance indicates damage or deterioration,
unplug it, discontinue use of your system, and have
the cord replaced with an exact replacement part by
an authorized service provider.
Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical
abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed
in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to
plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits
your receiver.
To disconnect power from the outlet, pull out the
plug. When installing your system, make sure that the
plug is easily accessible.

Keep these instructions.
Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water.

Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in
accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions.
Do not install near any heat sources such as

plug has two blades with one wider than the
other. A grounding type plug has two blades
and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or
the third prong are provided for your safety. If
the provided plug does not fit into your outlet,
consult an electrician for replacement of the
obsolete outlet.

pinched particularly at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from
the apparatus.

apparatus to its normal operation,
• If the apparatus has been dropped or
damaged in any way, and
• When the apparatus exhibits a distinct change
in performance this indicates a need for

Setting up your home
theater system
Finding a location for your home theater
system
• Install your home theater system on a stable flat
surface. Position your receiver so that it has a
direct line of sight to the remote control.
• Do not expose your system to extremes of
temperature or humidity.
• Avoid placing your system on a hot surface such
as on top of other hot running equipment. Make
sure that there is adequate ventilation to your
system.
Caution
Do not install the receiver in a confined space such as
a bookcase.
Caution
Connect the AC cord only after the speakers,
antenna, and all optional equipment have been
connected. Never make or change any
connections with the power turned on.

Placing your speakers
• If the subwoofer is placed near a turntable, CD
player, or Blu-ray Disc/DVD player, howling or
slipping of the sound may occur. To prevent this,
move the unit away from the turntable, CD player,
or Blu-ray Disc/DVD player, or lower the
subwoofer’s output level.
Connecting your speakers to the receiver
Speaker configuration
The following table indicates the channels you
should use depending on the number of speakers
that you have. For 5.1-channel surround-sound
playback, you need five speakers and a powered
subwoofer.

1 - Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front speakers, making
sound movements distinct and providing a
full-sound image. In movies it is used mainly for
dialog. Position it close to your TV facing forward at
about ear level, or at the same height as the front
speakers.
2 - Front speakers
These provide the overall sound. Their role in a
home theater system is to provide a solid anchor for
the sound image. They should be positioned facing
the listener at about ear level, and equidistant from
the TV. Angle them inward so as to create a triangle,
with the listener at the apex.
3 - Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of the LFE
(Low-Frequency Effects) channel. The volume and
quality of the bass output from your subwoofer will
depend on its position, the shape of your listening
room, and your listening position. In general, a
good bass sound can be obtained by installing the
subwoofer in a front corner, or at one-third the
width of the wall, as shown.
Tip
To find the best position for your subwoofer, while
playing a movie or some music with good bass,
experiment by placing your subwoofer at various
positions within the room, and choose the one that
provides the most satisfying results.
No matter how many speakers you use, a powered
subwoofer is recommended for a really powerful
and solid bass.
To get the best from your surround sound system,
you need to set the speaker settings. You can do
this automatically (see “Using the Audyssey 2EQ®
room correction and speaker setup” on page 14, or
manually (see “Configuring speakers (Sp Config
menu) on page 21).
Attaching the speaker cable labels
The AV receiver’s positive (+) speaker terminals are
all red. (The negative (–) speaker terminals are all
black.)

The supplied speaker cable labels are also
color-coded. You should attach them to the positive
(+) side of each speaker cable in accordance with
the table above. Then all you need to do is to match
the color of each label to the corresponding
speaker terminal.
Red line
4 - Surround speakers
These speakers are used for precise sound
positioning and to add realistic ambience. Position
them at the sides of the listener, or slightly behind,
about two to three feet (60 to 100 cm) above ear
level. Ideally they should be equidistant from the
listener.
Speaker precautions
• Do not put water or other liquids close to the
speakers. If liquid is spilled on the speakers, they
may be damaged.
• Speakers should only be placed on sturdy, flat
surfaces that are free from vibration. Putting them
on uneven or unstable surfaces, where they may
fall and cause damage, affects the sound quality.
6
Speaker connection precautions
Read the following before connecting your
speakers:
• You can connect speakers with an impedance of
between 6 and 16 ohms. If you use speakers with
a lower impedance, and use the amplifier at high
volume levels for a long period of time, the
built-in amp protection circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet
before making any connections.

Insignia NS-R5101AHD-A AV Home Theater Receiver
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In
other words, connect positive (+) terminals only
to positive (+) terminals, and negative (–)
terminals only to negative (–) terminals. If you get
them the wrong way around, the sound will be
out of phase and will sound unnatural.
• Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables
may affect the sound quality and should be
avoided.
• Be careful not to short the positive and negative
wires. Doing so may damage the receiver.
• Make sure the metal core of the wire does not
have contact with the receiver’s rear panel. Doing
so may damage the receiver.
To connect the subwoofer:
1 Using a subwoofer RCA cable, connect the AV
receiver's SUBWOOFER PRE OUT jack to an
input on your powered subwoofer, as shown.

Connecting devices
Warning
To connect the speaker cables:
1 Strip 1/2" to 5/8" (12 to 15 mm) of insulation
from the ends of the speaker cables, and twist
the bare wires tightly, as shown.
2 Loosen the speaker terminals on the receiver
and insert the speaker wires into the terminals.
The following illustration shows which speaker
should be connected to each pair of terminals.
3 Tighten the terminals to secure the wire.
Do not plug the AC cord into the AC outlet until all
connections are completed.
Notes
•
•
Be sure to observe the color coding when
connecting audio and speaker cords.
Make connections firmly and correctly. Failure
to do this can cause loss of sound, add noise to
the sound, or damage your receiver.
Connecting the antenna

To record the audio from one source input and the
video from another source input
The AV receiver must be turned on for
recording. Recording is not possible while it’s in
Standby mode.
If you want to record directly from your TV or
playback VCR to the recording VCR without
going through the AV receiver, connect the
TV/VCR’s audio and video outputs directly to
the recording VCR’s audio and video inputs. See
the manuals supplied with your TV and VCR for
details.
Video signals connected to composite video
inputs can be recorded only via composite
video outputs. If your TV/VCR is connected to a
composite video input, the recording VCR must
be connected to a composite video output.
The surround sound and DSP listening modes
cannot be recorded.
Copy-protected Blu-ray discs and DVDs cannot
be recorded.
Sources connected to a digital input cannot be
recorded. Only analog inputs can be recorded.
DTS signals will be recorded as noise, so don’t
attempt analog recording of DTS CDs or LDs.
Camcorder
AV Recording
CD player
Audio sources can be recorded to a recorder (such
as a cassette deck, CDR, MD) connected to the VCR
OUT jacks. Video sources can be recorded to a
video recorder (such as a VCR or DVD recorder)
connected to the VCR/DVR Out jack.
To record an audio source:
1 Use the input selector buttons to select the
source that you want to record. You can watch
the source while recording. The receiver’s
MASTER VOLUME control has no effect on
recording.
2 Start recording on your recorder.
3 On the source component, start playback. If you
select another input source during recording,
that input source will be recorded.
Recording Separate AV Sources
You can record audio and video from completely
separate sources, allowing you to overdub audio
onto your video recordings. This function takes
advantage of the fact that when an audio-only
input source (TV/CD) is selected, the video input
source remains unchanged.
In the following example, audio from the CD player
connected to the TV/CD IN jack and video from the
camcorder connected to the AUX INPUT VIDEO
jack are recorded by the VCR connected to the
VCR/DVR OUT jacks.
VCR
: Video signal
: Audio signal
To record separate AV sources:
1 Prepare the camcorder and CD player for
playback and the VCR for recording.
2 Press the AUX input selector.
3 Press the TV/CD input selector. This selects the
CD player as the audio source, but leaves the
camcorder as the video source.
4 Start recording on the VCR and start playback
on the camcorder and CD player. The video from
the camcorder and the audio from the CD player
are recorded by the VCR.

When you see the Rocketboost™ logo on any
product, it has been designed to work with other
Rocketboost™ products, no matter who
manufactures them.
How can I use Rocketboost™ with the NS-R5101AHD-A?
This product includes the NS-RB1 Rocketboost™
sender/receiver. The NS-RB1 can be used to receive
any Rocketboost™ audio stream from your other
Rocketboost™ products. For example, you can play
music from audio sources that are in other rooms.
If you are using Rocketboost™ to wirelessly send the
audio signal to a subwoofer, then connect a
subwoofer cable from the NS-R5101AHD-A receiver
subwoofer pre-out jack to the NS-RB1 subwoofer in
jack. If you are not using Rocketboost™ with a
subwoofer then this connection should not be
made.
Plus, the NS-RB1 can be used to send audio from
the NS-R101AHD-A. For example, you can connect
your rear surround sound speakers, or even
subwoofer, by using Rocketboost™ wireless instead
of wires. You can also send Zone 2 audio from the
NS-R101AHD-A to other rooms in your house. For
these applications you will need additional
Rocketboost™ products. You can learn more about
Rocketboost™ products at www.rocketboost.com.

To install the batteries:
1 Remove the cover.
Batteries (AA/R6)
2 Insert two AA batteries into the compartment
matching the polarity indicated.
3 Replace the cover.
Using the remote control
Use the remote control by pointing it towards the
receiver’s remote sensor window. Objects between
the remote control and sensor window may
prevent proper operation.

Approx. 16 ft. (5 m)
Use the remote control within about 16 feet
(5 meters) of the receiver and within 30 degrees of
perpendicular to the front of the receiver.
Cautions
•

•
14
Do not expose the remote control to shock. In
addition, do not expose the remote control to
liquids, and do not place in an area with high
humidity.
Do not place the remote control under direct
sunlight. The heat may cause deformation of
the remote control.
The remote control may not work properly if the
remote sensor window of the receiver is under
direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such a case,
change the angle of the lighting or receiver, or
operate the remote control closer to the remote
sensor window.
With the supplied calibration microphone,
Audyssey 2EQ® automatically determines the
number of speakers connected, their size (for
purposes of bass management), optimum
crossover frequencies to the subwoofer (if present),
and distances from the primary listening position.
Audyssey 2EQ then removes the distortion caused
by room acoustics by capturing room acoustical
problems over the listening area in both the
frequency and time domain. The result is clear,
well-balanced sound for everyone.
Enabling Audyssey 2EQ lets you also use Audyssey
Dynamic EQ®, which maintains the proper
octave-to-octave balance at any volume level.
Before using this function, connect and position all
of your speakers.
It takes about 15 minutes to complete the room
correction and speaker setup for three positions.
Total measurement time varies depending on the
number of speakers.
Using Audyssey 2EQ®
To create a listening environment in your home
theater that all listeners can enjoy, Audyssey 2EQ®
takes measurements at up to three positions within
the listening area.
Position the microphone at ear height of a seated
listener with the microphone tip pointed directly at
the ceiling using a tripod. Do not hold the
microphone in your hand during measurements as
this produces inaccurate results.
First measurement position (1)–Also referred to
as the Main Listening Position this refers to the
most central position where one would normally sit
within the listening environment. 2EQ uses the
measurements from this position to calculate
speaker distance, level, polarity, and the optimum
crossover value for the subwoofer.
Second measurement position (2)–The right side
of the listening area.
Third measurement position (3)–The left side of
the listening area.
The distances from position 1 to 2 and 1 to 3 must
be at least 3.3 feet (1 meter).

Adjusting the Audyssey settings (Audyssey 2EQ®,
Dynamic EQ®, Dynamic Volume® and Reference Level
submenus
Audyssey 2EQ® is a room equalization solution that
calibrates any audio system so that it can achieve
optimum performance for every listener in a large
listening area. Based on several room
measurements, 2EQ calculates an equalization
solution that corrects for both time and frequency
response problems in the listening area and
performs a fully automated surround system setup.
With Audyssey Dynamic EQ®, you can enjoy great
sound even when listening at low volume levels.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® solves the problem of
deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased
by taking into account human perception and room
acoustics. It does so by selecting the correct
frequency response and surround volume levels
moment-by-moment, so that the content sounds
the way it was created, at any volume level — not
just at reference level.
Note
The setting is stored individually for each input
selector.
Movies are mixed in rooms calibrated for film
reference. To achieve the same reference level in a
home theater system, each speaker level must be
adjusted so that –30 dBFS band-limited (500 Hz to
2000 Hz) pink noise produces 75 dB sound pressure
level at the listening position. A home theater
system automatically calibrated by Audyssey 2EQ®
plays at reference level when the master volume
control is set to the 0 dB position. At that level you
can hear the mix as the mixers heard it.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® is referenced to the
standard film mix level. It makes adjustments to
maintain the reference response and surround
envelopment when the volume is turned down
from 0 dB. However, film reference level is not
always used in music or other non-film content. The
Dynamic EQ Reference Level Offset provides three
offsets from the film level reference (5 dB, 10 dB,
and 15 dB) that can be selected when the mix level
of the content is not within the standard.

About Audyssey Dynamic EQ®
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® solves the problem of
deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased
by taking into account human perception and room
acoustics.
Dynamic EQ® selects the correct frequency
response and surround levels moment-by-moment
at any user selected volume setting. The result is
bass response, tonal balance, and surround
impression that remain constant despite changes in
volume. Dynamic EQ® combines information from
incoming source levels with actual output sound
levels in the room, a prerequisite for delivering a
loudness correction solution.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® works in tandem with
Audyssey 2EQ to provide well-balanced sound for
every listener at any volume level.
About Audyssey Dynamic Volume®
Audyssey Dynamic Volume® solves the problem of
large variations in volume level between television
programs, commercials, and between the soft and
loud passages of movies. Audyssey Dynamic
Volume® looks at the preferred volume setting by
the user and then monitors how the volume of
program material is being perceived by listeners in
real time to decide whether an adjustment is
needed. Whenever necessary, Audyssey Dynamic
Volume® makes the necessary rapid or gradual
adjustments to maintain the desired playback
volume level while optimizing the dynamic range.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® is integrated into Audyssey
Dynamic Volume® so that as the playback volume is
adjusted automatically, the perceived bass
response, tonal balance, surround impression, and
dialog clarity remain the same whether watching
movies, flipping between television channels, or
changing from stereo to surround sound content.

Notes
•
•
•
The setting is stored individually for each input
selector.
This setting can be made only for the input
source that is assigned as HDMI IN, COAXIAL IN,
or OPTICAL IN. If both HDMI (HDMI IN) and
digital audio inputs (COAXIAL IN or OPTICAL IN)
are assigned, HDMI input is selected as a priority
by setting to ARC. To select the digital audio
input, see “Setting up Digital Audio (Digital
Audio menu)” on page 21.
You can select ARC if you select the TV/CD input
selector. But you cannot select it if you have
selected Off in the Audio Return Ch setting.
Setting the A/V Sync
When using progressive scanning on your Blu-ray
Disc/DVD player, you may find that the picture and
sound are out of sync. With this setting, you can
correct this by delaying the audio signals. Option
settings are from 0 ms to 100 ms, in 10 ms steps.
Notes
•
•
A/V Sync is disabled when the Direct listening
mode is used with an analog input source.
The setting is stored individually for each input
selector.
Selecting a digital input signal format
The digital input signal formats are available only
for the input sources that you have assigned a
digital input jack.
Normally, the receiver detects the signal format
automatically. However, if you experience any
issues when playing PCM or DTS material, you can
manually set the signal format to PCM or DTS.

Problem/Possible Solution
The receiver contains a microcomputer for
signal processing and control functions. In rare
situations, severe interference, noise from an
external source, or static electricity may cause it
to lockup. If this happens, unplug the power
cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five
seconds, and then plug it back in again.
Insignia is not responsible for damages (such as
CD rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings
caused by the unit’s malfunction.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the
wall outlet, set the receiver to Standby.

There’s no sound
with a certain signal
format
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected
device. On some game consoles, such as those that support
DVD, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an audio
output format from a menu.
• Depending on the input signal, some listening modes
cannot be selected.
No 5.1 playback
• You can not always select all of the listening modes,
depending on the number of the speakers connected.
The volume cannot
be set to 79
• Check to see if a maximum volume has been set.
• After the volume level of each individual speaker has been
adjusted, the maximum volume may be reduced.
• When the levels of each speaker have been adjusted, the
maximum possible volume may be reduced.
Noise can be heard
The Late Night
function does not
work
DTS signal problems
The beginning of
audio received by
an HDMI IN can not
be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power cords,
speaker cables, and so on may degrade the audio
performance, so don’t do it.
• An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try
repositioning your cables.
There is no picture
from a source
connected to an
HDMI IN
The on-screen
menus do not

No communication
between the
NS-RB1 and your
receiver
• Make sure that Hub Status switch on the NS-RB1 is set
correctly.
• Make sure that the power LEDs on NS-RB1 and other devices
light solid blue/green. If the power LEDs blink slowly, try to
establish the link again. For more information, see
"Establishing communications" on page 13.
Cannot connect a
source device
• If your network is already full with transmitters when
joining is attempted, the source LED will blink three times
and then turn off. Remove (power down) a transmitting
device and try again.
• When you try to join a device to a network that has too
many nodes, the device will stay in joining mode until it
times out (30 second timeout). Upon timeout the unit
should be on and flash the power ring LED in a slow blink
indicating it is not connected to the network.
REMOTE CONTROL Problems
The remote control
does not work
• Before operating this unit, be sure to press RECEIVER.
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct
polarity.
• Install new batteries. Don’t mix different types of batteries,
or old and new batteries.
• Make sure that the remote control is not too far away from
the receiver, and that there’s no obstruction between the
remote control and the receiver’s remote control sensor.
• Make sure that the A receiver is not subjected to direct
sunshine or inverter-type fluorescent lights. Relocate if
necessary.
• If the receiver is installed in a rack or cabinet with
colored-glass doors, the remote control may not work
reliably when the doors are closed.
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote control mode.
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control code.
• Make sure to set the same ID on both the receiver and
remote control.
Cannot control
other components
• Make sure that you have selected the correct remote control
mode.
• If you cannot operate it, you need to enter the appropriate
remote control code.
RECORDING Problems
Cannot record
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the receiver, input
signals are not fed through to outputs with the same name
(for example, VCR/DVR IN to VCR/ DVR OUT).
MISCELLANEOUS Problems
The sound changes
when I connect my
headphones
• When a pair of headphones is connected, the listening
mode is set to Stereo, unless it’s already set to Stereo, Mono,
or Direct.
• Since it takes longer to identify the format of an HDMI signal
than it does for other digital audio signals, audio output
may not start immediately.
VIDEO Problems
No picture
TUNER Problems
Reception is noisy,
FM stereo reception
is noisy, or the FM
STEREO indicator
does not light
• Make sure that the source material is Dolby Digital, Dolby
Digital Plus, and Dolby TrueHD.
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream
stops, the receiver remains in DTS listening mode and the
DTS indicator remains on. This is to prevent noise when you
use the pause, fast forward, or fast reverse function on your
player. If you switch your player from DTS to PCM, because
the receiver does not switch formats immediately, you may
not hear any sound, in which case you should stop your
player for about three seconds, and then resume playback.
• With some CD and LD players, you won’t be able to playback
DTS material properly even though your player is connected
to a digital input on the receiver. This is usually because the
DTS bitstream has been processed (for example, output
level, sampling rate, or frequency response changed) and
the receiver does not recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In
such cases, you may hear noise.
• When playing DTS program material, using the pause, fast
forward, or fast reverse function on your player may
produce a short audible noise. This is not a malfunction.
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed in all
the way.
• Make sure that each video component is properly
connected.
• If the video source is connected to a component video input,
you must assign that input to an input selector, and your TV
must be connected to COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT.
• If the video source is connected to a composite video input,
your TV must be connected to the corresponding composite
video output.
• If the video source is connected to an HDMI input, you must
assign that input to an input selector, and your TV must be
connected to the HDMI OUT.
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which the
receiver is connected is selected.
Problem/Possible Solution
Relocate your antenna.
Move the receiver away from your TV or computer.
Listen to the station in mono.
When listening to an AM station, operating the remote
control may cause noise.
• Passing cars and airplanes can cause interference.
• Concrete walls weaken radio signals.
• If nothing improves the reception, install an outdoor
antenna.
WIRELESS Problems
• Reliable operation with an HDMI-to-DVI adapter is not
guaranteed. In addition, video signals from a PC are not
guaranteed.
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which the
receiver is connected is selected.
• When the receiver doesn’t connect TV with HDMI, onscreen
menus are not displayed.
