Question about Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

I have a Yamaha RX-V363 AV Receiver. I am using the digital audio output from a Philips LCD TV 42PFL7532D into the receiver (coax connection). Changing television stations causes the receiver to freeze. The power plug has to be pulled to reset the receiver. I have tried another new RX-V363 receiver and the same problem occurs. It appears to be a compatibility problem with the digital output from the Philips TV. Does anyone have experience of compatibility problems between Philips TV's and Yamaha receivers?

    Thanks for the help. However, it is not possible to take audio off the HDMI connection at the receiver. Video and audio are switched only by the receiver and then go straight through to the TV. If I want suuround sound from the TV (e.g. free to air broadcasts) then I have to use the coax connection back to the receiver from trhe TV.

There is likely a static charge (voltage / difference of potential) between the the receiver and the TV.

They should have their grounds tied together. This should be covered in your owner's manuals.

In some cases, there may also be a stray voltage on the cable line's ground. If grounding the two together doesn't work, you may want to call the cable company (or you or a friend may be able) to check the cable line for a stray voltage or bad ground.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Connecting cable to receiver


Do you mean 5 RCA audio outputs marked as FrontLeft, FrontRight, RearLeft, RearRight, Center? Unfortunately this receiver doesn't have discrete 5ch inputs (as yamaha calls it on its webpage).
But the cable box should have also digital audio SPDIF output - that is either optical (square connector) or coax (RCA usually orange). You can use this for connecting to receiver.

this sounds strange, but is true. you need to run your digital audio optical cable from your tv to your receiver (after, of course, connecting tv/receiver via hdmi). so, hdmi from blue ray to rec - hdmi from rec to tv - then optical from tv back to rec. it's round about, but that is how yamaha says (and the only way it works) to do it.

No audio after hooking up RX-V363 to TV monitor (from cable box )


The HDMI on the RX-v363 does not pass the audio.  You need to either connect an optical or digital cable from your audio source.  If it is a cable box or DVD player there should be audio outputs in addition to HDMI

Having trouble connecting my blue ray and tv to my yamaha receive and surround system


Must be an HDMI ?

If yes use the HDMI DVD input on your receiver ( from the Blue Ray using a HDMI cable )
Then use an HDMI cable from receiver to TV.

That should work for image. Sound would only work directly from TV, to have sound on receiver:

Use either optical or coax cable to direct digital sound from blueray to receiver.
Best is optic, depends on blueray or cable availability ... Coax = RCA cables @ 75 Ohms, use of a spare RGB would work find (using only one of three color available let's say using Red only) or try with any RCA cable.

direct cable from blueray to receiver ( Digital inputs at far left looking back of receiver num 7 in owner manual, choose DVD )

If no sound from receiver check Audio select from option menu ( set to auto )

Any specific question about this procedure ?

or guess you already found out,

Enjoy :-)

Yamaha RX V861 - Phillips DVD - No sound via digital coax


Does your TV support "Line In" or "Aux" or "External"? if so plug your "Low end" DVD directly into the back of the tv and verify that you Can get audio. Quite a few DVD players do have a mute feature. Be sure this is turned "off"...accordianman
