Question about Yamaha RX-V800 Receiver

Open Question

No audio when playing blu-ray and DVD

I have recently returned from overseas and retrieved my home theater system from a friend. I bought a panasonic viera full HD tv and a panasonic DMP-BD30 blu-ray player. I've connected the TV and blu-ray using a HDMI cable. And connected the yamaha RX-V800 5.1 receiver to the blu-ray using an optical digital audio cable. It seemed like a very straightforward set of connections for getting everything going. However, I haven't been able to receive any sound when playing blu-ray, DVD, and compact audio discs.

The receiver produces the requisite test tone through all the speakers. It also tunes into and outputs FM radio.

I've gone through the manuals for the blu-ray player and the receiver to ensure that both were set to enable the optical digital connection.

The blu-ray player default settings seemed to be compatible, the only one that required changing was to turn HDMI Audio Output to OFF. The blu-ray player only has one optical digital connection.

I confirmed that the receiver's I/O Assignment was correct -> (in set-up mode) all the initial settings were in place, and 7C (5) was designated to DVD - the optical digital connection I am using from the receiver to the blu-ray.

The only other possible causes I can think of are that the blu-ray is not outputting through the optical connection due to a fault, the receiver is not receiving the signal due to a fault, or the optical digital connection is suffering a fault. Is there anything else I could try before having to a technical professional to address a potential fault?

    Have you set the blu-ray player to the correct output type? My Samsung needed to be set to downmix to PCM before my receiver would work.

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

Can i connect dmp-bd871 to a home theater system


It will depend on your home theater system and TV. If your system accepts HDMI in from other devices and HDMI out to the TV, connect an HDMI cable from the blue-ray player to an HDMI input on home theater system. Then connect another HDMI cable between the home theater system and the TV. This will provide the best video and audio experience.

Another option is connect the HDMI cable from the Blue-ray player to the TV. Connect the audio output of the TV to the home theater system. (This will depend on the TV as well as the home theater system. Some TVs have digital audio outputs; others have analog outputs. If your home theater system doesn't have the same input as the TV's output, you would need a converter as well as the digital and analog audio cables. This is an example of one for digital to analog: http://www.gefen.com/kvm/dproduct.jsp?prod_id=4907 .)

If you do not want to get the best picture from the Blue-ray player and your home theater system has analog audio inputs, you can connect the composite video out to the TV. Then connect the audio outputs from the player to your home theater system. (This means only an SD picture will be provided to your TV.)

Panasonic has the manual for the DMP-BD871 here: service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMPBD871-MUL.PDF .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the other devices in your entertainment system or their inputs/outputs. Then I can add specific information for your system and any tips for setting up the system.

What exportable audio is originating with the TV in your scenario? I couldn't find any documentation supporting an audio output of any flavor.

Isn't the root source of the program actually a cable box, satellite, dvd or blu-ray? Wouldn't THAT be where you want the audio feed to the Panasonic to come from?

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.
