Question about Yamaha RX-V1800

Open Question

Yamaha RX-V1800 Zone 2 and Zone 3 connections - no sound output

Attempted to connect outdoor speakers to the Zone 2/Zone 3 speaker connections utilizing the internal amplifiers (SP1 and SP2), but I'm not getting any sound output. I then attempted to connect my Yamaha RX-V995 as a second amplifier using the RX-V1800 RCA connections for Zone 2 and Zone 3 outputs; still no sound output. Have had this amplifier/receiver for several years now with no problems, and I thought adding a zone would be an easy task. Getting very frustrated! Please help!!!

SOURCE: no zone 2 sound coming from yamaha amp rx-v861

Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,

SOURCE: yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers

Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

SOURCE: I have a the RX-V1700

Strange, if you hook the output from zone 1 to the speakers though it works, correct? You can always just have both sets of speakers connected to zone 1. It sounds like the zone 2 output may have some issues going on here. There shouldn't be anything prohibiting the other sources from playing over zone 2. Check the setup of the receiver and verify there is nothing that "disables" zone 2 for those sources, but to my knowledge (and looking at the manual here) there isn't anything like that.

RX-V1600 when i turn on no sound or channels display on


If you are sure that the speaker wiring is correct and connections are good, then:
  • Check the input and output connections are correct for each source.
  • Check that the input mode is not set to DTS or Analog - rotate the input selector to the source and the press the input mode, set it to Auto.
  • Also check that the front speakers to be used are selected A or B (or A+B).
  • If there is an optimiser microphone supplied with this receiver, ensure that it is not still plugged in.
Hope one of these solutions work for you.

We want to hook up eight speakers in eight differnet rooms (one speaker per room with individual volume control) and hook them up with yamaha RX-V1800 receiver so that we can play all the speakers in...


Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

I think the Yamaha will not upconvert anything below 480p through the HDMI output. You'll need to use the component out to the TV.
