Use the one you have.. for 5.1 surround...on the back of the receiver there are outputs for right , left , center , rear left , rear right. and an output for the sub ... once you have all of them hooked up there should be a test tone option to insure that it is done properly. if you have any questions on how to do any of this just let me know.

First--the incoming cable from the wall carries all the channels from the cable company including both analog and digital or HD channels. They may not send the HD channels in a format that your TV can receive, but you can get the analog channels normally using the TV tuner, just as you found. The only way to get the audio to go with the channel on the TV tuner (rather than through the set top box) is to connect the TV audio outputs to an unused audio input of the Yamaha. Then switch to that amp input when watching the analog channels via the TV tuner. The audio will then follow the TV tuner as you change channels.

The Motorola cable box also has a composite video output that you could connect to the TV through the amp using its monitor output (yellow composite video)connection. Just connect the cable box analog output to the TV/Sat video input of the amp. Then just hook up the amp monior output to one of the video inputs of the TV and give it a try. This way you do not need to split the cable or use the TV tuner. Just go to the analog channels using the cable box and switch the TV to the video input. The amp should send video from both the component outputs and the analog composite video output simultaneously. Give this a try and see if this is the case.

Let me know if this works and if not what kind of results you have. Some amps do not send video to both outputs and I am not sure about this Yamaha model.


Hope this helps you. Good luck.

If you want di-pole setup, you need 2 more speakers as this option requires 7 speakers.

    You can hook up 9 speakers depends what surround mode you want.
    You have speaker set A and B, can select both at a time.
    This receiver has outputs for 11 speakers. (front a/b, surround, surround back, center and presence zone-2)



  • Shahid Electronics

    but it is not necessary to hook all speakers right now. You can add more at later stage because you already have 5 speakers and can enjoy music.

HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers - blank.gif

    I suggest you follow these steps from your manual:

    Put the speaker wire into the Presence/Zone 2 connectors on the right
    side. Pg 60 shows how to turn off the Presence Speaker, although the
    next steps may do it automatically. Pg63 has the instructions on using
    the internal amplifier for Zone 2. Change Zone2 to Internal, Volume
    will be set to Variable (although I was told by the seller that it'd be
    a fixed volume).

    (Sure enough, this step turns off the Presence Speaker, so you can skip
    the Pg 60 instructions). Next is Pg78-80, and it appears you must have
    the remote to do the rest. You have to get the remote in Learn Mode,
    then switch to L:AMP, press ENTER, Enter 2001 on the keypad, then
    ENTER, then LEARN. Then you need to select the Zone like you select a
    component, unfortunately it's not one of the buttons on the remote, so
    hit the Up/Down arrows until you see ZONE2 in the remote window, then
    turn it on by hitting the SYSTEM POWER button. Then select what you
    want to go to Zone2, like TUNER, then bring the volume up to 0.00db.
    That should be it.

    Zone2 are stereo pairs thoughout the house with individual volume
    controls. Keeping the volume at 0db works pretty well this way as the
    sound comes through after one click on the dial.Use the remote to power on and off the receiver...if you power on using main pannel the "zone2 and zone 3" will light up.



    Follow page 68 to use the remote to turn off the "zone2 and 3"



    top right hand of page 68 "AMP library code, (remote control setting)
    2000 is the initial setting put in setting 2001 and after that press
    "Select ^" on the remote and in the display on the remote it should
    show "zone 2" then press "System power" or "power AV "

Where do I plug rca cables from the cable box into an RX-V2500 Yamaha receiver?


Depending on what type of connections your cable box has available you can do the following:

1) If yo only have the standard VIDEO & L R AUDIO connections you can use the DTV connection on the back of the V2500. If your cable box also has an S-VHS connection this would be the same connection to use.

2) If you have COMPONENT VIDEO connections on your cable box then you would still use the DTV connection. Looking at the back of your V2500 the regular DTV RCA connections are just to the left of center. Farther over to the left are the COMPONENT VIDEO connections. They are labeled Y, Pb, and Pr. These allow for the higher needs of HD TV transmissions. If your cable box has these connections then making use of them would allow for the best quality for your picture.

The following website has your manual available for download in case you need it:

Humming noise from all 5 speakers!


check the type of cable you are using. low end cable lets in a lot of static and distortion, if I were you I would look into some higher end cable.
I find 9 times out of 10 with situations like yours the cabling usually is the culprit.
