Notes:
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
receiver is subjected to bright light, such as direct sunlight or inverter-type fluorescent lights. Keep this in
mind when installing.
• If another remote controller of the same type is used
in the same room, or the AV receiver is installed close
to equipment that uses infrared rays, the remote controller may not work reliably.
• Don’t put anything, such as a book, on the remote controller, because the buttons may be pressed inadvertently, thereby draining the batteries.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
receiver is installed in a rack behind colored glass
doors. Keep this in mind when installing.
• The remote controller will not work if there’s an
obstacle between it and the AV receiver’s remote control sensor.

About Home Theater
Enjoying Home Theater
Thanks to the AV receiver’s superb capabilities, you can enjoy surround sound with a real sense of movement in your
own home—just like being in a movie theater or concert hall. With DVDs you can enjoy DTS and Dolby Digital. With
analog and digital TV you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIx or Onkyo’s own DSP surround listening modes.
Front left and right speakers
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 equidistant from the TV. Angle them inward so as to create a triangle,
with the listener at the apex.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front left
and right speakers, making sound
movements distinct and providing a
full sound image. In movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV (preferably
on top) facing forward at about ear
level, or at the same height as the
front left and right speakers.
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.
Surround left and right
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 2–3 feet (60–100 cm)
above ear level. Ideally they
should be equidistant from the
listener.
Surround back left and right speakers
These speakers are necessary to enjoy Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES
Matrix, and DTS-ES Discrete. They enhance the realism of surround
sound and improve sound localization behind the listener. Position them
behind the listener about 2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level.

AV Connection Color Coding
About AV Connections
RCA-type AV connections are usually color-coded: red,
white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect rightchannel 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.
Optical Digital Jacks
The AV receiver’s optical digital jacks have shutter-type
covers that open when an optical plug is inserted and
close when it’s removed. Push plugs in all the way.

Right (red)

Caution: To prevent shutter damage, hold the optical
plug straight when inserting and removing.

• Push plugs in all the way to make
good connections (loose connections can cause noise or malfunctions).
• To prevent interference, keep
audio and video cables away from
power cords and speaker cables.

arrows point toward the TV/screen, while the surround
back left and right dipole speakers should be positioned so
that their arrows point toward each other, as shown.

Connecting the AV Receiver—Continued
Speaker Connection Precautions
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• Only 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.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• 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.
• If you use 4 or 5 speakers, connect each of the two
surround speakers to the SURROUND SPEAKERS
terminals. Do not connect them to the SURROUND
BACK SPEAKERS terminals.
• Be careful not to short the
positive and negative wires.
Doing so may damage the AV
receiver.
• Make sure the metal core of the
wire does not have contact with
the TX-SR603X’s rear panel.
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 the Speaker Cables
1
Strip about 5/8" (15 mm)
of insulation from the
ends of the speaker
cables, and twist the bare

Connecting the AM Loop Antenna
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.
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.

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.
■ 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.

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.

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, 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 by
using any one of the following video connection formats: composite video, S-Video, or component video,
the latter offering the best picture quality.
A video signal connected to a V or S IN jack will be
converted—composite video to S-Video or S-Video to
composite video—but only for the MONITOR OUT
jacks, not the VIDEO 1 and VIDEO 2 OUT V and S
jacks.
Note: The TX-SR603X can be set to upconvert composite video and S-Video input signals and output them
from the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT (see page 43).
Audio equipment can be connected to the AV receiver by
using any of the following audio connection formats:
analog, optical, coaxial, or multichannel.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the AV receiver doesn’t convert between them. For
example, audio signals connected to an OPTICAL or
COAXIAL input are not output by the analog TAPE
OUT.

If your recorder has a digital input, by connecting it to
the AV receiver’s optical DIGITAL OUT jack, you can
record digitally. However, because the AV receiver
doesn’t convert analog input signals to digital and vice
versa, only input signals connected to a DIGITAL IN
jack can be recorded in this way.

(Menus vary depending on country)
*When a speaker has a warning, its abbreviation (e.g., L, R, and so on) appears.
Not Detect:
No speaker was detected. Make sure
the connection is secured correctly.
Distance Error:
The positions of the speakers are too
close or too far, or the distance could
not be measured.
If you want to adjust any of the settings
manually, see “Speaker Setup” on
page 44.
When you’ve checked the settings, press the [RETURN] button
to return to the previous menu.
Note:
Measurement may not be performed correctly depending on your use environment. If the measurement results
remain unchanged after retried, create speaker settings
manually (see pages 44-49).
Tip:
When any amplifier-builtin subwoofer is connected, its
sound may not be detected with the automatic speaker
settings because the sound is generated from the low
position with very low frequencies. If the subwoofer
(SW) is specified as “Not Detect” in the measurement
40
results confirmation screen, turn the volume up to an
appropriate level and the frequency as high as it can go.
And then turn on the Direct switch, if available. For further information, see the manual for the subwoofer.

About the Listening Modes
Dolby Digital
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.
If you connect two surround back speakers (i.e., left and
right), both will be used for 6.1-channel surround playback.
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.
The AV receiver’s surround indicators show which
speakers are active in each listening mode.

Surround

Direct
The selected input source is output directly with minimal
processing for a pure sound.
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.
With an added surround-back channel,
this 6.1-channel format offers a heightened sense of space, for added realism with moving
sounds, such as those that rotate 360 degrees or pass
overhead. Dolby Digital EX material can also be played
on conventional 5.1-channel systems, in which case the
surround-back channel audio is split between the surround left and right channels. Use this mode with DVDs
that have a 5.1-channel soundtrack and 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
player in order to enjoy DTS material. Use this mode
with DVDs, LDs, or CDs that bear the DTS logo.
DTS 96/24
This mode provides higher audio quality.
Use it with CDs, DVDs, and LDs that bear
the DTS 96/24 logo.
Dolby Pro Logic II Movie
DTS-ES Discrete
Use this mode with DVDs and videos that bear the Dolby Surround
logo or TV programs that feature Dolby Surround. You
can also use this mode with stereo movies or TV programs and the AV receiver will create a 5.1 surround mix
from the 2-channel stereo.
This is DTS with an added surround back
channel for 6.1 surround sound. Use it with
program material recorded in DTS 6.1 format. With the
additional surround back channel, this format offers 6.1
fully independent digital channels, providing a realistic
sense of movement and space. Use it with program material recorded in DTS 6.1, such as CDs, DVDs, or LDs
that bear the DTS-ES logo.
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 IIx
If you’ve connected surround back speakers to the AV
receiver, Dolby Pro Logic IIx allows you to enjoy 7.1channel playback from 2-channel or 5.1-channel music
or movies. Dolby Pro Logic IIx provides a well defined,
natural multichannel surround sound experience, putting
the listener in a seamless envelope of sound. The added
drama and natural sound enhance the listening experience with CDs, movies, and games.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx has three modes of operation:
Movie mode for movies, Music mode for listening to
music, and Game mode for use with game consoles with
2-channel stereo outputs.

DTS-ES Matrix
This is DTS with an added surround back
channel for 6.1 surround sound. Use it to
provide 6.1-channel surround playback
with program material recorded in DTS 5.1
format. Since DTS 5.1 program material
contains surround back channel information, all channels can be reconstructed for 6.1-channel
playback. Use this mode with CDs, DVDs, or LDs that
bear the DTS-ES or DTS logo.
Neo:6
This mode provides 6.1-channel playback from 2-channel sources. It offers six 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 6.1-channel surround sound sources.
Use this mode with videos, DVDs, and TV programs 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.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
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 programs produced in a
TV studio. In addition, it adds surround effects to the
entire sound and adds clarity to voices.
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.
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.

AV Recording
Recording Separate AV Sources
You can record AV input sources to an AV recording
component (VCR, etc.) connected to the VIDEO 1 OUT,
VIDEO 2 OUT, or TAPE OUT. See pages 26–36 for
information on connecting components.
Here 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 (i.e.,
TAPE, TUNER, or CD) is selected, the video input
source remains unchanged.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN, and video from the camcorder connected to the VIDEO 4 INPUT VIDEO jack are recorded
by the VCR connected to the VIDEO 1 OUT jacks.

Advanced Setup—Continued
The Audio Adjust functions are explained below.
Neo:6 Music Mode Setting
Input Channel Settings
■ Center Image
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 6-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 3). 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.
■ 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.
Main/Sub: Both the main and sub channels are output.
■ Mono (2chSource)
This setting specifies the channel to be used for playing
any 2-channel digital source such as Dolby Digital, or 2channel analog/PCM source in the Mono listening
mode.
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.
PL IIx Music Mode Settings
These settings provide for playing any 2-channel digital
source such as Dolby Digital, or 2-channel analog/PCM
source in the PLIIx Music listening mode.
■ Panorama
With this function, you can broaden the width of the
front stereo image when using the Pro Logic II Music or
Pro Logic IIx Music listening mode.
On: Panorama function on.
Off: Panorama function off (default).
Dolby Digital EX Input Signal Setting
■ Dolby D EX
This setting determines how Dolby Digital EX signals
are handled. This setting is unavailable if no surround
back speakers are connected.
Auto: If the source signal contains a Dolby Digital
EX flag, the Dolby Digital EX listening mode
is used (default).
Manual: You can select Pro Logic IIx Movie, Pro
Logic IIx Music, Dolby Digital, or Dolby
Digital EX.
■ Dimension
With this setting, you can move the sound field forward
or backward when using the Pro Logic II Music or Pro
Logic IIx Music listening mode. The default setting is 3.
Higher settings move the sound field forward. Lower settings move it backward.
If the stereo image feels too wide, or there is too much
surround sound, move the sound field forward to
improve the balance. Conversely, if the stereo image
feels like it is in mono, or there is not enough surround
sound, move it backward.
■ Center Width
With this function, you can adjust the width of the sound
from the center speaker when using the Pro Logic II
Music or Pro Logic IIx Music listening mode. Normally
if you are using a center speaker, the center channel
sound is output by only the center speaker. (If you are 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).

Normally, the AV receiver detects the signal format automatically. However, if you experience either of the following issues when playing PCM or DTS material, you
can manually set the signal format to PCM or DTS:
• If the beginnings of tracks from a PCM source are cut
off, try setting the format to PCM.
• If noise is produced when fast forwarding or reversing
a DTS CD, try setting the format to DTS.

Zone 2—Continued
Using the 12V Trigger
Using a Multiroom Kit with a Cabinet
When Zone 2 is turned on, the ZONE 2 12V TRIGGER
OUT outputs 12 volts (100 milliamperes max). By connecting this jack to the 12-volt trigger input on, say, a
power amp in Zone 2, that power amp will turn on and
off automatically as and when Zone 2 is turned on and
off on the AV receiver.
In the following diagram, an IR receiver picks up the
infrared signals from the remote controller and feeds
them to the AV receiver in the cabinet via the connecting
block.
• On the Remote Setup menu, set the IR IN Position setting to “Main” (see page 72).
Using the Remote Control in Zone 2
To use the remote controller to control the AV receiver
from Zone 2, you’ll need one of the following commercially available multiroom remote control kits:
• Multiroom Kits are made by Niles and Xantech.
These kits can also be used when the AV receiver is not
in line of sight of the remote controller, for example,
when it’s installed inside a cabinet.
Using a Multiroom Kit with Zone 2
In the following diagram, an IR receiver picks up the

The AV receiver’s remote controller can receive and
learn commands from other remote controllers. By
transmitting, for example, the Play command from your
CD player’s remote controller, the remote controller can
learn it and then transmit the exact same command when
its Play [ ] button is pressed in CD mode.
You can also use this function to learn individual commands after entering a remote controller code (page 78).
Point the remote controllers at
each other, about 2 to 6 inches
(5–15 cm) apart, and then press
and hold the button whose command you want to learn until the
Remote indicator flashes.
If the command is learned successfully,
the Remote indicator flashes twice.

Notes:
• The following buttons cannot learn new commands:
REMOTE MODE, MACRO [1], [2], [3], TV [
],
TV CH [+]/[–], TV [INPUT], TV VOL [ ]/[ ].
• The AV receiver’s remote controller can learn approximately 70–90 commands, although, this will be
reduced by commands that use a lot of memory.
• Remote controller buttons such as Play, Stop, Pause,
and so on are preprogrammed with commands for
controlling Onkyo CD players, cassette decks, and
DVD players. However, they can learn new commands, and you can restore the preprogrammed commands by resetting the remote controller (page 79).
• To overwrite a previously learned command, repeat
this procedure.
• Only commands from infrared remote controllers can
be learned.
• When the remote controller’s batteries expire, all
learned commands will be lost and will have to be
learned all over again, so don’t discard your other
remote controllers.
On the AV receiver’s remote controller, press the button you want
to learn the new command.

Troubleshooting
If you have any trouble using the AV receiver, look for a
solution in this section. If you can’t resolve the issue
yourself, contact your Onkyo dealer.
Power
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.
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 and contact your Onkyo dealer.
Audio
There’s no sound, or it’s very quiet?
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 20).
• Make sure that the inputs and outputs of all components are connected properly (page 20).
• Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables is
correct, and that the bare wires are in contact with the
metal part of each speaker terminal (page 22).
• Make sure that the input source is properly selected
(page 51).
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume. It can be set to MIN, 1 through 99,
or MAX (page 51). The AV receiver is designed for
home theater enjoyment. It has a wide volume range,
allowing precise adjustment.
• If the MUTING indicator is shown on the display,
press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 52).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the
PHONES jack, no sound is output by the speakers
(page 52).
• 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.
• If your turntable doesn’t have a built-in phono
preamp, 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 phono equalizer.
• Make sure that none of the connecting cables are bent,
twisted, or damaged.
• Not all listening modes use all speakers (page 62).
84
• Specify the speaker distances (page 47) and adjust the
individual speaker levels (page 48).
• Make sure that the speaker setup microphone is not
still connected.
Only the front speakers produce sound?
• When the Stereo listening mode is selected, only the
front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• When the Direct listening mode is selected, only the
front speakers produce sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 44).
Only the center speaker produces sound?
• If you use the Pro Logic IIx Movie or Pro Logic IIx
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 44).
The surround speakers produce no sound?
• When the Stereo or Direct listening mode is selected,
the surround speakers produce no sound (page 62).
• 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 44).
The center speaker produces no sound?
• When the Mono or Stereo listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound (page 62).
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 44).
The surround back speakers produce no
sound?
• The surround back speakers are not used with all listening modes. Select another listening mode
(page 62).
• Not much sound may be produced by the surround
back speakers with some sources.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 44).
TXSR603X.book 85 ページ 2005年8月3日 水曜日 午後2時2分
Troubleshooting—Continued
The subwoofer produces no sound?
• 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 44).
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 (page 61).
Can’t select the DTS-ES Discrete/Matrix listening modes?
• These modes cannot be selected when no surround
back speakers are connected, or the Zone 2 speakers
are being used.
• You can not always select all of the listening modes,
depending on the number of the speaker connected
(page 61).
Can’t get 6.1 playback?
• If no surround back speakers are connected, or the
Zone 2 speakers are being used, 6.1 playback is not
possible.
• You can not always select all of the listening modes,
depending on the number of the speakers connected
(page 61).
The volume cannot be set to 99?
• When the levels of all speakers have been calibrated
(page 48), the maximum volume setting may change.
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 64).
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 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 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.
Video
There’s no picture?
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 20).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
• If your video 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.
The onscreen menus don’t appear?
• Make sure that the video settings are correct
(page 43).
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
The DVD analog multichannel input doesn’t
work?
• Check the DVD analog multichannel input connections (page 28).
• To select the DVD analog multichannel input, press
the [MULTI CH] input selector button.
• Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.

Troubleshooting—Continued
Tuner
Reception is noisy, FM stereo reception is
noisy, 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 54).
• 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.
Can’t select XM radio channels
• Channels cannot be selected while the
is flashing, as tuning is in progress.
indicator
Remote Controller
The remote controller doesn’t work?
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity (page 13).
• Install new batteries. Don’t mix different types of batteries, or old and new batteries (page 13).
• 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 13).
• Make sure that the AV receiver is not subjected to
direct sunshine or inverter-type fluorescent lights.
Relocate if necessary.
• If the AV receiver is installed in a rack or cabinet with
colored-glass doors, the remote controller may not
work reliably when the doors are closed.
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (pages 14-18).
• When using the remote controller to control other
manufacturers’ AV components, some buttons may
not work as expected.
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code.
• Make sure to set the same ID on both the AV receiver
and remote controller (pages 72 and 73).
Can’t control other components?
• If it’s an Onkyo component, make sure that the
cable and analog audio cable are connected properly.
Connecting only an
cable won’t work (page 36).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (pages 14-18).
86
• 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 display to MD, CDR, or HDD (see pages
50 and 79).
• When learning commands, make sure that the transmitting ends of both remote controllers are pointing at
each other.
• Are you trying to learn from a remote controller that
cannot be used for learning? Some commands cannot
be learned, especially those that transmit several
instructions with a single button press.
• The wrong remote control code has been entered.
• The entered remote control code may not be correct.
If more than one code is listed, try each one.
• With some AV components, certain buttons may not
work as expected, and some may not work at all.
• To control Onkyo components, point the remote controller at the AV receiver.
• To control another manufacturer’s component, point
the remote controller at that component.
Recording
Can’t record?
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected (e.g., digital or analog).
Zone 2
Zone 2 has turned off?
• Was the Sleep function set? The Sleep function turns
off Zone 2 as well as the AV receiver. To set the Sleep
function for Zone 2 only, see page 76.
There’s no sound?
• Only components connected to analog inputs can be
played in Zone 2.
TXSR603X.book 87 ページ 2005年8月3日 水曜日 午後2時2分
Troubleshooting—Continued
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
or Direct. When you disconnect the headphones, the
previous listening mode will be resumed.
The speaker volume cannot be set as required?
• When the Automatic Speaker Setup function is used,
or the volume is adjusted on the onscreen setup
menus, the maximum possible volume setting may
change.
The speaker distance cannot be set as
required?
• In some cases, corrected values suitable for home theater use may be set automatically.
The display doesn’t work?
• Actions are not displayed on the TV or projector that’s
connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source?
• Use the “a. Multiplex” setting on the “4. Audio
Adjust” menu to select Main or Sub (page 69).
The functions Auto Power On/Standby and
Direct Change don’t work for components connected via
?
• These functions don’t work when Zone 2 is turned on.
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.
Resetting the AV receiver to its factory defaults
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on
and, while holding down the [VIDEO 1] button, press
the [STANDBY/ON] button. “CLEAR” will appear on the
display and the AV receiver will enter Standby mode.
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.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
