Connect stereo receiver to Video Capture USB

Question

Trying to transfer lp's to Mp3 files - My Onkyo TX-8270 receiver does not have tape-out RCA connector ports to connect the video capture USB, only 3 outputs, two RCA connector outputs for zone 2 (Separate room) pre-amplifier and sub-woofer output, and 1 HDMI output port for connecting a TV.  Not sure if an RCA to HDMI adapter to connect to the HDMI output would work since the port is for connecting a TV.  Suggestions, please?

How are you getting the signal from your LP player to the receiver? Can't you simply connect the players output to the USB device?

Just tried this.  I get no audio response in the capture device software after connecting the LP player's output to the USB device.

This is a wild shot but looking at the manual,maybe. On the back of the receiver you have a Zone 2 out. Are those RCA jacks? If so you might be able to hook the devices In to that out and get a signal.You will have to turn on Zone 2 on the Receiver.

The outs look like RCA's in the picture but it's hard to tell.If those outs are wire terminals then never mind.

I did not get any audio response in the USB device software, or even any audio response, by connecting the USB device to the Zone 2 outputs of the receiver.  Next 2 attempts to resolve issue are 1, reinstall the software on the laptop and 2, use a separate preamp connected to the LP player.

I can tell you that using a separate pre-amp should work. I've done it before with a Harmon Kardon pre-amp and old Thorens turntable.

Sorry my idea didn't work.I would have thought that it would considering the above..

Couple of things.

1) Make sure of this

Example of a connection with an audio component. Connect a CD player using a digital coaxial cable or analog audio cable. You can connect a turntable that has an MM-type cartridge to the PHONO jack. 0If the turntable has a built-in audio equalizer, connect it to an AUDIO IN jack other than the PHONO jack. Also, if the turntable uses an MC type cartridge, install an audio equalizer compatible with the MC type cartridge between the unit and the turntable, then connect to any AUDIO IN jack other than the PHONO jack.

2) Looking at the manual more those RCA outs are Line level so they would need some kind of amplification at the other end (power amplifier) to really be heard.

Could just be the level coming out isn't enough to drive the device.Be like trying to listen to headphones straight from line level( without amplification).

The preamp I purchased resolved the issue.  Thank you, tbrewst, for your insight and suggestions.
