Precautions—Continued
Speaker Precautions
For British models
Placement
Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power
supply cord of this unit should be performed only by
qualified service personnel.
• The subwoofer cabinet is made out of wood and is
therefore sensitive to extreme temperatures and
humidity, do not put it in locations subject to direct
sunlight or in humid places, such as near an air conditioner, humidifier, bathroom, or kitchen.
• Do not put water or other liquids close to the speakers.
If liquid is spilled over the speakers, the drive units
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, will affect the sound quality.
• Subwoofer is designed to be used in the upright vertical position only. Do not use it in the horizontal or
tilted position.
• If the unit is used near a turntable, CD player or DVD
player, howling or slipping of sound may occur. To
prevent this, move the unit away from the turntable,
CD player or DVD player, otherwise lower the unit’s
output level.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue:
Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or
coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or
coloured red.
IMPORTANT
The plug is fitted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse
needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must
approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same
ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for
the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
If the power cord’s plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, cut it off and fit a suitable plug. Fit a suitable
fuse in the plug.
For European Models
Declaration of Conformity
We, ONKYO EUROPE
ELECTRONICS GmbH
LIEGNITZERSTRASSE 6,
82194 GROEBENZELL,
GERMANY
declare in own responsibility, that the ONKYO product
described in this instruction manual is in compliance with the
corresponding
technical standards such as EN60065,
EN55013, EN55020 and EN61000-3-2, -3-3.
TVs and computer monitors are magnetically sensitive
devices and as such are likely to suffer discoloration or
picture distortion when conventional speakers are
placed nearby. To prevent this, the SKF-350F and
SKC-350C feature internal magnetic shielding. In some
situations, however, discoloration may still be an issue,
in which case you should turn off your TV or monitor,
wait 15 to 30 minutes, and then turn it back on again.
This normally activates the degaussing function, which
neutralizes the magnetic field, thereby removing any
discoloration effects. If discoloration problems persist,
try moving the speakers away from your TV or monitor.
Note that discoloration can also be caused by a magnet
or demagnetizing tool that’s too close to your TV or
monitor.
Do not place SKM-350S close to TV or a computer
monitor because they have no magnetic shield.
Input Signal Warning
GROEBENZELL, GERMANY
K. MIYAGI
ONKYO EUROPE ELECTRONICS GmbH
Memory Backup
The AV receiver uses a battery-less memory backup
system in order to retain radio presets and other settings
when it’s unplugged or in the case of a power failure.
Although no batteries are required, the AV receiver
must be plugged into an AC outlet in order to charge the
backup system. Once it has been charged, the AV
receiver will retain the settings for several weeks,
although this depends on the environment and will be
shorter in humid climates.
4
Using Close to a TV or Computer
The speakers can handle the specified input power when
used for normal music reproduction. If any of the following signals are fed to them, even if the input power is
within the specified rating, excessive current may flow
in the speaker coils, causing burning or wire breakage:
1. Interstation noise from an untuned FM radio.
2. Sound from fast-forwarding a cassette tape.
3. High-pitched sounds generated by an oscillator,
electronic musical instrument, and so on.
4. Amplifier oscillation.
5. Special test tones from audio test CDs and so on.
6. Thumps and clicks caused by connecting or disconnecting audio cables (Always turn off your amplifier
before connecting or disconnecting cables.)
7. Microphone feedback.

Remote Controller
How to Use the Remote Controller
Including the AV receiver, the remote controller can be
used to control up to six different components. The
remote controller has a specific operating mode for use
with each type of component. Modes are selected by
using the five REMOTE MODE buttons.
■ RECEIVER/TAPE Mode
In RECEIVER/TAPE mode, you can control
the AV receiver and an Onkyo cassette
recorder connected via
.
■ DVD, CD, MD, CDR & HDD Modes
With these modes, you can control an Onkyo
DVD player and CD/MD/CDR/HDD
player/recorder.
RECEIVER Mode
RECEIVER mode is used to control the AV receiver.
To set the remote controller to RECEIVER mode,
press the [RECEIVER] REMOTE MODE button.

Speaker Set A: Main Room
Front left and right speakers (SKF-350F L/R)
These output the overall sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid anchor for the sound
image. They should be positioned facing the listener at about ear level, and equally spaced from the
TV. Angle them inward.
Center speaker (SKC-350C)
This speaker enhances the front left and
right speakers, making sound movements distinct and providing a full sound
image. For movies it’s used mainly for
dialog.
Position it close to your TV facing forward
at about ear level, or at the same height
as the front left and right speakers.
* While speaker set B is on, this
speaker outputs no sound.
Corner
Subwoofer (SKW-350)
The subwoofer handles the
bass sounds of the LFE (LowFrequency Effects) channel. In
general, a good bass sound
can be obtained by installing
the subwoofer in a front corner,
or at one-third the way along
the wall, as shown.
Speaker Set B: Sub Room
1/3 wall
length
Surround left and right speakers (SKM-350S L/R)
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 2–3 feet
(60–100 cm) above ear level. Ideally they should be
equally spaced from the listener.
* While speaker set B is on, these speakers output no
sound.

Connecting Your Speakers
Speaker Connection Precautions
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• You can connect speakers with an impedance of
6 ohms or higher. 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 protection
circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
words, connect positive (+) terminals to only positive
(+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals to only 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 AV
receiver.
• Don’t connect more than one
cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage the
AV receiver.
• Don’t connect one speaker to several terminals.
Connecting Speaker
The AV receiver’s positive (+) speaker terminals are
color-coded for ease of identification. (The negative (–)
speaker terminals are all black.)

Wall Mounting
Using Speaker Mounts/Brackets
The speakers can easily be wall mounted by using the
keyhole slots. To prevent the speaker from vibrating
against the wall, attach two of the supplied thick rubber
stoppers to the rear of each speaker.
To mount the front or surround speakers vertically, use
the keyhole slot shown to hang each speaker on a screw
that’s securely screwed into the wall.
Threaded inserts for machine screws are provided on the
rear of each speaker for wall-mounting with commercially available speaker mounts or brackets. North
American models require 1/4-inch screws. Other models
require M5 (5 mm) screws. Refer to the manual supplied
with your mounts or brackets for installation details.

Caution:
A mounting screw’s ability to support a speaker depends
on how well it’s anchored to the wall. If you have hollow
walls, screw each mounting screw into a stud. If there are
no studs, or the walls are solid, use suitable wall anchors.
Use screws with a head diameter of 5/16" (9 mm) or less
and a shank diameter of 1/8" (4 mm) or less. With hollow
walls, use a cable/pipe detector to check for any power
cables or water pipes before making any holes.
Leave a gap of between
Wall
3/16" (5 mm) and 7/16"
(10 mm) between the wall
and the base of the screw
head, as shown.
(We recommend that you
consult a home installa3/16" – 7/16"
tion professional.)
(5 mm) – (10 mm)
We recommend using the provided rubber stoppers to
achieve the best possible sound from your speakers. The
rubber stoppers prevent the speakers from moving, providing a more stable platform. Use thick stoppers for the
center speaker, and thin stoppers for the other speakers.

Connecting Antenna
This section explains how to connect the supplied indoor
FM antenna and AM loop antenna, and how to connect
commercially available outdoor FM and AM antennas.
The AV receiver won’t pick up any radio signals without
any antenna connected, so you must connect the antenna
to use the tuner.
AM antenna push terminals
FM antenna jack
Connecting the Indoor FM Antenna
The supplied indoor FM antenna is for indoor use only.
1
Attach the FM antenna, as shown.
■ American Model
Connecting the AM Loop Antenna
The supplied indoor AM loop antenna is for indoor use
only.
1
Assemble the AM loop antenna, inserting
the tabs into the base, as shown.
2
Connect both wires of the AM loop
antenna to the AM push terminals, as
shown.
(The antenna’s wires are not polarity sensitive, so
they can be connected either way around).
Make sure that the wires are attached securely and
that the push terminals are gripping the bare
wires, not the insulation.
Push
Insert wire
Release
Insert the plug fully into the jack.
■ Other Models
Insert the plug fully
into the jack.
Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll
need to tune into an FM radio station and adjust
the position of the FM antenna to achieve the best
possible reception.
2
Fully extend the antenna and point it in
various directions to find the best reception. Secure it in that position with thumbtacks or something similar.
If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead (see page 23).
22
Once your AV receiver is ready for use, you’ll
need to tune into an AM radio station and adjust
the position of the AM antenna to achieve the best
possible reception.
Keep the antenna as far away as possible from
your AV receiver, TV, speaker cables, and power
cords.
If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
indoor AM loop antenna, try using it with a commercially available outdoor AM antenna (see page 23).

Connecting an Outdoor FM Antenna
Connecting an Outdoor AM Antenna
If you cannot achieve good reception with the supplied
indoor FM antenna, try a commercially available outdoor FM antenna instead.
If good reception cannot be achieved using the supplied
AM loop antenna, an outdoor AM antenna can be used in
addition to the loop antenna, as shown.
Outdoor antenna
Insulated antenna cable
AM loop antenna
Notes:
• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
attic or loft.
• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
of sight to your local FM transmitter.
• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
well away from power lines and other high-voltage
equipment.
• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed outside
horizontally, but good results can sometimes be obtained
indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note
that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.
Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with
local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
■ Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter
It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV
reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as
shown.

About AV Connections
RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red,
white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect right-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”). Use
white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to
connect composite video inputs and outputs.
• Before making any AV connections, read the manuals
supplied with your other AV components.
• Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed
and double-checked all AV connections.

The audio quality is the same as for optical.
This cable carries analog audio. It’s the most common connection format for analog audio and can be
found on virtually all AV components.
This cable carries multichannel analog audio and is
typically used to connect DVD players with a 5.1channel analog audio output. Several standard analog audio cables can be used instead of a multichannel cable.

Which Connections Should I Use?
The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format
you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.
For video components, such as a DVD player, you must make two connections—one for audio, one for video.
Video Connection Formats
Audio Connection Formats
Video equipment can be connected to the AV receiver
using one of the following video connection formats:
composite video, or component video, the latter offering
the best picture quality.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the AV receiver doesn’t convert between formats, so only
outputs of the same format as the input will output the
signal.
For example, if you connect your DVD player to the
COMPONENT VIDEO DVD IN, a video signal will be
output by the COMPONENT OUT, but not by any composite video outputs.
Audio equipment can be connected to the AV receiver
using the following audio connection formats: analog,
optical, coaxial, and multichannel.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the AV receiver doesn’t convert between formats.
For example, audio signals connected to an OPTICAL or
COAXIAL digital input are not output by the analog
TAPE OUT, so if you want to record from, for example,
your CD player, in addition to connecting it to a digital
input, you must also connect it to the analog CD IN.

RDS only works with European models and only in areas
where RDS broadcasts are available. When tuned into an
RDS station, the RDS indicator appears.
RDS indicator
■ What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data in FM radio signals. It was developed
by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European countries. Many FM stations use
it these days. In addition to displaying text information,
RDS can also help you find radio stations by type (e.g.,
news, sport, rock, etc.).
The AV receiver supports four types of RDS information:
PS (Program Service)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting PS
information, the station’s name appears. When you press
the [DISPLAY] button, the frequency is displayed for
three seconds.
RT (Radio Text)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting RT
text information, that information is shown on the display (see page 41).

and how to record audio and video from two different
sources.
Recording the Input Source
You can record only to AV components that are connected to the TAPE OUT or VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.
See pages 24–33 for information on connecting your AV
components to the AV receiver.

V2
Use the input selector buttons to
select the AV component that
you want to record.
Audio signals from the selected input
source are output by the VIDEO 1 OUT
and TAPE OUT jacks.
You can listen to the source while
recording. The AV receiver’s VOLUME control has no effect on recording.
Recording from Different AV Sources
With this function, you can record audio and video from
different sources, allowing you to overdub audio onto
your video recordings. This function takes advantage of
the fact that when an audio-only input source (i.e.,
TAPE, TUNER, or CD) is selected, the video input
source remains unchanged. For example, if you first
select the VIDEO 3 input source, followed by the CD
input source, you can watch the video from the VIDEO 3
input and listen to the audio from the CD input.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN jacks, and video from the camcorder
connected to the VIDEO 3 IN jack are recorded by the
VCR, which is connected to the VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.

About the Listening Modes
With its built-in surround-sound decoders and DSP programs, the AV receiver can transform your home listening room into a movie theater or concert hall.
This illustration shows which speakers are active in
each listening mode.

The selected input source is output directly with minimal
processing for a pure sound.
player in order to enjoy DTS material. Use this mode
with DVDs and CDs that bear the DTS logo.
Neo:6
This mode provides 5.1-channel playback from 2-channel sources. It offers five full-bandwidth channels with
excellent separation. There are two modes of operation:
Cinema mode for movies, and Music mode for listening
to music.
Cinema mode simulates the realistic sense of movement
that you get with 5.1-channel surround sound sources.
Use this mode with videos, DVDs, and TV shows that
feature stereo sound.
Music mode uses the surround channels to simulate a
natural sound field that cannot be produced with conventional stereo. Use this mode with stereo material such as
music CDs.
Stereo
The selected input source is processed as a stereo signal
and output by the front left and right speakers and the
subwoofer.
Mono
Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
soundtrack, or to select multilingual soundtracks
recorded in the left and right channels of some movies.
It can also be used when playing a DVD or other source
with multiplexed audio, such as a karaoke DVD.
Dolby Pro Logic II Movie
Use this mode with DVDs and videos that bear the Dolby Surround
logo or TV shows that feature Dolby Surround. You can
also use this mode with stereo movies or TV shows and
the AV receiver will create a 5.1 surround mix from the
2-channel stereo.
Dolby Pro Logic II Music
Use this mode to add 5.1 surround to stereo sources such
as music CDs and DVDs.
Dolby Pro Logic II Game
Use this mode when playing game discs.
Dolby Digital
With this format you can experience the
same superb sound that you get at a movie
theater or concert hall. Use this mode with DVDs that
bear the Dolby Digital logo.
DTS
This digital surround format offers a surround sound experience with exceptional
fidelity. It uses compressed digital audio
data, with six discrete channels (5.1), and the
ability to handle large amounts of audio data while
remaining faithful to the original. DTS provides very
high-quality sound. You’ll need a DTS compatible DVD
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
Mono Movie
This mode is suitable for use with old movies and other
mono sound sources. The center speaker outputs the
sound as it is, while reverb is applied to the sound output
by the other speakers, giving presence to even mono
material.
Orchestra
Suitable for classical or operatic music. The surround
channels are emphasized in order to widen the stereo
image. In addition, it simulates the natural reverberation
of a large hall.
Unplugged
Suitable for acoustic instrument sounds, vocals, and jazz
music. By emphasizing the front stereo image, it simulates the stage-front experience.
Studio-Mix
Suitable for rock and pop music. Listening to music in
this mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful
acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
TV Logic
Adds realistic acoustics to TV shows produced in a TV
studio. In addition, it adds surround effects to the entire
sound and adds clarity to voices.
All Ch Stereo
Ideal for background music. The front, surround, and
surround back channels create a stereo image that fills
the entire listening area.
Full Mono
In this mode, all speakers output mono audio, so the
music sounds the same regardless of where you are.

Press the [RECEIVER] button followed by the [SETUP] button.
■ Multiplex
This setting determines which channel is output from a
stereo multiplex source. Use it to select audio channels
or languages with multiplex sources, multilingual TV
broadcasts, and so on.
Main: The main channel is output (default).
Sub: The sub channel is output.
M/S: Both the main and sub channels are output.
■ Mono (2ch)
This setting determines which channel is output when
the Mono listening mode is used with a stereo source.
L+R: Both the left and right channels are output
(default).
L: Only the left channel is output.
R: Only the right channel is output.

Adjusting the Listening Modes—Continued
PLII Music Mode Settings
These settings apply to only 2-channel (stereo) sources.
■ Panorama
With this function, you can broaden the width of the
front stereo image when using the Pro Logic II Music
listening mode.
On: Panorama function on.
Off: Panorama function off (default).
■ Dimension
With this setting, you can move the sound field forward
or backward when using the Pro Logic II Music listening
mode. The default setting is 3. It can be adjusted from 0
to 6. Higher settings move the sound field forward.
Lower settings move it backward.
If the stereo image feels too wide, or there’s too much
surround sound, move the sound field forward to
improve the balance. Conversely, if the stereo image
feels like it’s in mono, or there’s not enough surround
sound, move it backward.
■ Center Width
This setting has an effect when you use a center speaker.
With this function, you can adjust the width of the sound
from the center speaker when using the Pro Logic II
Music listening mode normally. If you’re using a center
speaker, the center channel sound is output by only the
center speaker. (If you’re not using a center speaker, the
center channel sound will be distributed to the front left
and right speakers to create a phantom center). This setting controls the front left, right, and center mix, allowing you to adjust the weight of the center channel sound.
It can be adjusted from 0 to 7 (default is 3).
DTS Neo:6 Music Mode Setting
■ Center Image
This setting has an effect when you use a center speaker.
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 5-channel
surround sound from 2-channel (stereo) sources. With
this setting, you can specify by how much the front left
and right channel output is attenuated in order to create
the center channel. It can be adjusted from 0 to 5 (default
is 2). This setting is unavailable if no surround speakers
are connected.
When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is
attenuated by half (–6 dB), giving the impression that the
sound is located centrally. This setting works well when
the listening position is considerably off center. When
set to 5, the front left and right channels are not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.
Using the Late Night Function
(Dolby Digital only)
With the Late Night function, you can reduce the
dynamic range of Dolby Digital material so that you can
still hear quiet parts even when listening at low volume
levels—ideal for watching movies late at night when you
don’t want to disturb anyone.

RECEIVER
L NIGHT
Press the [RECEIVER] button,
and then press the [L NIGHT] button repeatedly to select:
Off: Late Night function off.
Low: Small reduction in dynamic
range.
High: Big reduction in dynamic
range.
Notes:
• The effect of the Late Night function depends on the
Dolby Digital material that you are playing, and with
some material there will be little or no effect.
• The Late Night function is set to Off when the AV
receiver is set to Standby.
Using the CinemaFILTER
With the CinemaFILTER, you can soften overly bright
movie soundtracks, which are typically mixed for reproduction in a movie theater.
CinemaFILTER can be used with the following listening
modes: Dolby Digital, Dolby PLII Movie, DTS, and
DTS Neo:6 Cinema.

Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
radio presets and custom settings.
Power
• If the MUTING indicator is shown on the display,
press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 43).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the
PHONES jack, no sound is output by the speakers
(page 42).
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio format from a menu.
• If your turntable doesn’t have a phono preamp built-in,
you must connect one between it and the AV receiver.
If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must connect an MC head amp, or an MC transformer and a
phono preamp.
• Specify the speaker distances and adjust the individual
speaker levels (pages 50, 51).
• The input signal format is set to PCM or DTS. Set it to
Auto (page 54).
Can’t turn on the AV receiver?
• Make sure that the power cord is properly plugged into
the wall outlet.
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait five
seconds or more, then plug it in again.
Only the front speakers produce sound?
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
only the front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 52).
The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned
on?
• The amp protection circuit has been activated.
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for one hour. After that, reconnect the power
cord, and then set the volume to maximum. If the AV
receiver stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the power cord, and reconnect your speakers and
input sources properly. If the AV receiver turns off
when you set the volume to maximum, disconnect the
power cord, and contact your Onkyo dealer.
Only the center speaker produces sound?
• If you use the Pro Logic II Movie or Pro Logic II
Music listening mode with a mono source, such as an
AM radio station or mono TV program, the sound is
concentrated in the center speaker.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 52).
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet?
• Press the SPEAKERS [A] or [B] button to turn on the
indicator for the speakers that you want to output
sound.
• Make sure that the digital input source is selected
properly (page 35). Press the [DIGITAL INPUT] button repeatedly.
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 24).
• Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables is
correct, and that the bare wires are in contact with
metal part of each speaker terminal (page 20)
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume. The AV receiver is designed for
home theater enjoyment and has a wide volume range
for precise adjustment (page 36).
The surround speakers produce no sound?
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the surround speakers produce no sound (page 47).
• Depending on the source and current listening mode,
not much sound may be produced by the surround
speakers. Try selecting another listening mode.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 52).
The center speaker produces no sound?
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound (page 47).
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 52).
The subwoofer produces no sound?
• The subwoofer outputs no sound while only speaker
set B is on. Turn on speaker set A.
• When you play source material that contains no information in the LFE channel, the subwoofer produces
no sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 52).
• If the multichannel DVD input is selected and speaker
set B is on, speaker set A is reduced to 2-channel playback, so the subwoofer outputs no sound.
55
HT-SR600_En.book Page 56 Wednesday, December 27, 2006 4:11 PM
Troubleshooting—Continued
• On the AV receiver, the subwoofer setting in the
speaker configuration is set to No. Set the subwoofer
setting to Yes.
There’s no sound with a certain signal format?
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio output format from a menu.
Can’t get 5.1-channel playback?
• When speaker B is turned on, speaker set A is reduced
to 2.1-channel playback.
The volume cannot be set to 79?
• When the subwoofer volume level is set to a positive
(+) value, the maximum master volume level is
reduced proportionally.
Noise can 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.
The Late Night function doesn’t work?
• Make sure the source material is Dolby Digital
(page 49).
The DVD analog multichannel input doesn’t
work?
• Check the DVD analog multichannel input connections (page 27).
• To select the DVD analog multichannel input, press
the [MULTI CH] input selector button (page 37).
• Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.
About DTS signals
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV 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 AV 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 players, you won’t be able to playback
DTS material properly even though your player is connected to a digital input on the AV receiver. This is
usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed
(e.g., output level, sampling rate, or frequency
response changed) and the AV receiver doesn’t 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.
56
Video
There’s no picture?
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 24).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
• The AV receiver does not convert between formats, so
if a video source component is connected to a component video input, your TV must be connected to the
component video output (page 25).
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
Tuner
Reception is noisy, stereo FM reception suffers
from hiss, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
appear?
• Relocate your antenna.
• Move the AV receiver away from your TV or computer.
• Listen to the station in mono (page 38).
• When listening to an AM station, operating the remote
controller may cause noise.
• Passing cars and airplanes can cause interference.
• Concrete walls weaken radio signals.
• If nothing improves the reception, install an outdoor
antenna (page 23).
Remote Controller
The remote controller doesn’t work?
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity (page 7).
• Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
away from the AV receiver, and that there’s no
obstruction between the remote controller and the AV
receiver’s remote control sensor (page 7).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 12).
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code.
Can’t control other components?
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 12).
• If you’ve connected an
-capable Onkyo MD
recorder, CD recorder, or next generation HDD-compatible component to the TAPE IN/OUT jacks, or a
DS-A1 Remote Interactive Dock to the VIDEO 3 IN
jacks, for the remote controller to work properly, you
must set the Input Display to MD, CDR, or HDD (see
page 35).
• To control an Onkyo component that’s connected via
, point the remote controller at the AV receiver.
HT-SR600_En.book Page 57 Wednesday, December 27, 2006 4:11 PM
Troubleshooting—Continued
Recording
Can’t record?
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the AV
receiver, input signals are not fed through to outputs
with the same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT, or
VIDEO 1 IN to VIDEO 1 OUT).
Others
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, Direct.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source?
• Use the “Multiplex” setting on the “4. Audio Adjust”
menu to select Main or Sub (page 48).
The

• To use
, you must make an
connection and an
analog audio connection (RCA) between the component and AV receiver, even if they are connected digitally (page 33).
The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations,
severe interference, noise from an external source, or
static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely
event that this happens, unplug the power cord from the
wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it
back in again.
Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD
rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by
the unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
