Unfortunately the RX-V463's HDMI output is version 1.2 or 1.1. In simple terms, It is useless! Not to blame yamaha or any other manufacturer but the firmware was riddled with problems; just like what you describe. There is no fix for your model for the video issue, however, the optical issue is solveable. The receiver should play 5.1- 6.1 7channel stereo etc. in optical or coaxial mode. If you have the ability to switch to coaxial, do so. it's sound is warmer anyway. Secondly, check your settings thru the receivers "GUI" or "Menu" in Manual setup for audio. Thirdly, check your samsungs "Native" resolution, chances are it will only do 720p or 1080i and; if your TV is 50" or smaller, the human eye cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080p anyway, provided you use good cables. I am a professional in the industry and still avoid using HDMI whenever possible!
Just make sure you set your BluRay and TV to the same resolution. If your choices are 720p or 1080i use 720p it's cleaner 1080i is equal to 540p, which is just a hair over std DVD video. If you still have problems and need more help, post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps

I have the same receiver... You can try pressing the Option button and choosing Signal Info to see what audio signal the receiver sees and if that changes over time. Maybe the cable box is not outputting according to specifications... TV can live with that, but receiver maybe can't.
You can also try to connect the cable box via SPDIF cable (optical or coax) to see if it helps or not.

What speakers you have connected? This receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers (not 4 ohm). Also check if the ohm settings are correctly set in Advanced Setup (in standby press on the front panel STANDBY while holding STRAIGHT button). In this menu check the setting SP IMP. (speaker impedance) if it maches your speakers (6 or 8 ohm).
Disconnect all inputs and also all speakers. With nothing connected, try to increase the volume. If it still will power off, the unit is probably faulty and should be repaired.
If it does turn off only with speakers connected, check the speaker wires and the speakers, the problem will be there.

This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.
From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.
So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.
Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.
