  1. No sound comes out of it - what can I do to try and fix this? Thanks!
  2. Ah! Thank you so much! That WOULD explain it. So I need to have both my RCA's and Digital Coaxial cable plugged into the receiver and configured under a certain (but the same) Video setting coming from my Digital Terminal. Cool! You guys are definitely a great help! Thanks! (P.S. Whereas on my DVD player, all I need is my Digital Coxial cable, or do I need my RCA's as well if I'm listening to a CD or something that doesn't require digital? i.e. Does the Digital Coaxial output cable play regular analog too? I can't remember, I just moved into my new home and I forgot everything. I'm audio challenged. LOL) Have a good one, Porsche
  3. Here is my Digital Cable Guide: http://downloads.rogers.com/digitalcable/guides/SA_Guide_5th_Ed.pdf
  4. Hi everyone. Here's my problem: On my new Digital Cable Terminal box, I have DIGITAL OUT and S-VIDEO out for the higher quality outputs (also has the regular analog ports too). I have my coaxial digital cable line incoming to my Digital Terminal (it's hosted by Rogers Digital Cable in Canada) and stopping there. I don't need one going to my TV because I have my S-VIDEO and DIGITAL AUDIO cables going there in lieu of it, correct? On my Onkyo TX-DS575X( receiver, I have 2 coaxial digital inputs and 2 fibre optic digital inputs. So, my DVD player's digital connection is made to COAXIAL 1 for e.g. and my Digital Terminal is going to COAXIAL 2. How come I can't hear anything this way thru my Rogers Digital Cable? My DVD player works fine this way! I went to the setup on the receiver, and specified DIGITAL INPUT as COAXIAL 2 for the Digital Terminal, but to no avail. Is that because I don't have my digital coaxial cable going from my Digital Terminal to the TV? Receiver: http://www.onkyousa.com/redirect_own_manual.cfm?file=tx-ds575x_e1.pdf TV: http://ayuda.sel.sony.com/documents/tv/KV27FS13.pdf Digital Terminal is pretty straightforward. This can be kind of hard to troubleshoot over the 'net, but I'll call Rogers Cable and talk to them about it. I tinkered with it for some time last night, and it's all pretty straightforward really. I probably am missing something on a configuration or such. Cheers! Porsche

    Some speculations: That wasn't Sophia's voice at the beginning (Penelope Cruz), that was simply a voice recorded for his alarm clock, which went off with the words 'Open your eyes' done by a female voice. (One could further assume he has such a high-tech wake up alarm because he is wealthy, as indicated by the movie - I won't say dreams or reality, as it's debatable!) Cluless - Exactly how were the 7 dwarfs responsible? This is going on the assumption that many of his dreams were indeed real and factual of his life... is this what you think? Boa's claim that it is just part of his paranoia is a good one. Let's say he is dreaming, are these just dreams? And he awakes, and they're nothing at all, he's just an ordinary guy? However, can this really be the case, because his dreams are so vivid and so extraordinary - the only way these kinds of dreams are possible sound like the Lucid Dreams technology... I like the idea of the 'splice' theory too Boa... it sounds quite likely that that's a possibility... perhaps care of the Lucid Dreams technology... His face and physical condition - well, going on the premis that he actually did have a car crash, and he is in a coma, these injuries still aren't repaired as indicated by Tech Support... (or this could be a splice.. damn this is tough!!! - everything after the gutter was true, he nearly killed himself with pills -- if you think of it, the car crash and the pills both would have lead to a coma... interesting eh?) Tech support = his own conciousness = splice = lucid dreams technology = contract signed at Life Extension Corporation = going on the theory that he is rich, there were the 7 dwarfs and there was a car crash... 'nuff said for now. I think I might buy this on DVD. I watched it on VHS at the girlfriend's... I know.. I know.. no home theatre system or anything! heh heh ------------------ Onkyo TX-DS575X( Receiver Sony DVPS 560D DVD Player Klipsch RF-3 Klipsch RS-3 Klipsch RC-3 Klipsch KSW-12 Subwoofer Sony 32" WEGA TV

    Addendum: I also think that the whole movie he was dreaming, but the event of him coming to near death in that car crash was true, as the Tech Support had indicated to him. I think the Tech Support segment near the end explained alot. Or... it's just all a dream, and he'll go into a new dream... heh heh... But nah, I think he'll go back to the land of the living. ------------------ Onkyo TX-DS575X( Receiver Sony DVPS 560D DVD Player Klipsch RF-3 Klipsch RS-3 Klipsch RC-3 Klipsch KSW-12 Subwoofer Sony 32" WEGA TV

    My interpretation is that David (Tom Cruise) did indeed come to near death in the car crash (and Julie James did indeed die in the car with him) and was put into a cryogenic deep freeze at the Life Enhancing (can't exactly remember the name) company - which allowed him to stay in a dreamlike state with the Lucid Dreams technology, and brought him back to the real world at the end of the movie because he would be able to be revived/recovered and his face reconstructed becaue the technology of that day (some 150 years later) would be able to heal him.

  9. I'm having Sony come in to take a look at it! FYI. ------------------ Onkyo TX-DS575X( Receiver Sony DVPS 560D DVD Player Klipsch RF-3 Klipsch RS-3 Klipsch RC-3 Klipsch KSW-12 Subwoofer Sony 32" WEGA TV
  10. Have you tried replacing the fuse? As well, I'd hook up the power cord to a reliable power bar, and turn it on and off that way. It should still be under warranty (5 years from purchase I believe). I'd get it fixed. Could be a foreshadowing of electronic nightmares to come with your KSW.

  11. I just got a brand new Sony 32" Wega. When I'm watching a movie, and I'm using component video, I see a white line or something like it on the extreme left-hand side of the screen. It pretty much goes all the way down the TV. Now, it only shows up when the background is all black, but only on certain 'signals' I assume. When I switch from Video 1 thru to 4, I do see a white line also, but it's not at the extreme left-hand side, it's out about 1 inch. When watching plain old coaxial cable TV, I don't notice it really - probably because the screen doesn't go black that much. I can call in Sony for nothing, I'm just wondering what some of your thoughts are fellow Klipschians. Cheers, Porsche959 (P.S. I drive a Jeep, I just like Porsche!) ------------------ Onkyo TX-DS575X( Receiver Sony DVPS 560D DVD Player Klipsch RF-3 Klipsch RS-3 Klipsch RC-3 Klipsch KSW-12 Subwoofer Sony 32" WEGA TV
  12. You should use eBay to buy the complete system. It's called the Klipsch (Synergy Series) Quintet Microtheatre. It comes with 4 Satellite speakers and 1 Center channel. Here's a few sets currently being auctioned: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1324541988 http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1325512921 If you just want the Center, here's an auction JUST for the Center(it's an outrageous price though in my opinion, and I can't believe 3 people have actually bid on it): http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1325440209 I'd probably do a little more shopping if I were you. I'd start off with TWO MAIN speakers (FRONTS), and then work your way up to a CENTER, and then buy TWO SURROUNDS - but buy HIGHER END Klipsch speakers. The Quintet are okay, but you may quickly desire a more full-range system.

  13. 3/4 of the level control of my receiver would be 52.5 on the volume readout (3/4 of 70 <70 being my maximum level> is 52.5). However, going by what's been said, 52.5 may not actually be 3/4 of my total maximum rated output. It could technically be more or less. In my case, I would surmise less. I could, let's say, increase my readout to 58 (which is the highest I would want it I think - 58 is adequately LOUD for my taste!) and this would more realistically, in my mind, indicate 75 - 80% of the maximum rated output. If I just play CDs, which are generally louder than DVDs I've noticed (some DVDs are quieter - some are louder) they play great. I could also increase my -/+ dB level on my speakers too. They're all set to 0 right now, and I think they can go -8 to +8 (or maybe it was -12 to +12).

  14. The size of my room is small as well. I don't have the exact specifics, but it's no bigger than an average-sized bedroom. I have not calibrated my system - I'm not sure I understand what you mean by this. I suppose you mean have I used a listening meter/tester and positioned my speakers in all the right spots? It sounds great, I just was wondering why I start to notice the loudness in my system when I'm at 50+ on the volume control. I have a powered subwoofer, the KSW-12. Everything on my system is set to LARGE (which brings me to another question - which takes precedence for the Speaker Size settings, the DVD Player or the RECEIVER? - They're set to LARGE on both). I was reading up on the SMALL vs LARGE debate, and I've decided to leave mine at LARGE. If I set my SURROUNDS and MAINS + CENTER to all SMALL, will this increase the loudness at lower levels? Don't get me wrong, my system is LOUD, I just have to adjust the volume until it's 50+ out of 70. P.S. My definition of LOUD might be louder than yours! I've always been prone to having things extra loud.

  15. Thanks Penguin! I just needed some piece of mind! I have (yet another) a question about my volume loudness. My Onkyo 575X has a volume digital readout, from 1 to about 70. From 35 - 45 is about average listening levels. Not really too loud. For a DVD movie, if I want some real extra kicks, I bring it to 50 - 55. This is quite nice. I don't see much loudness increase between 1 - 10, and from 10 - 25, but I do see quite a big difference between 30 - 40, 50 - 60 (NOTE: Only on DVDs - stereo CD's are pretty loud at those levels.) Can I run my system at 60 - 65 without causing harm? My volume peaks out at 70. I'm wondering if my receiver is powerful enough for my system. It's quite clear at ALL levels. I'm truly impressed everytime I listen to my system. If I watch a movie at 65, it is truly LOUD. REALLY, REALLY LOUD. I'll likely not watch them at this level! heh heh My question: Is it normal to bring the volume level up to 50+ to *really* have a nice loud ensemble when watching a DVD movie? (Between 50 - 60 you can really hear each dB increase.) Quick summarization of questions (these questions are included above and are just repeated below): 1) Can I run at level 65, if it's not distorting (which it isn't), without worry? 2) Why do I have to turn the digital readout to 50+ to really have a nice loud movie? I hear everyone on here say they only turn it up 4 or 5 notches, and that's as loud as they go.
