Question about Yamaha RX-V2600 Receiver
HI. I just receieved a brand new RX-V2600 and spent a few hours studying the manual and getting everything hooked up. My problem deals specifically with the video from my satellite receiver dropping out. I have my satellite receiver outputs run to the V2600; the video via S-Video cable. I also have a DVD player hooked up to the Yamaha via component cable. The signals from both then run to my Sony rear projection (50" Grand Wega) set via HDMI. The problem is, the video from the satellite signal drops out after a few minutes and then continues to cut in and out. The audio is fine. I ran the s-video cable directly back into the TV to make sure it was not a problem with the Dish receiver. It works fine. Heat does not seem to be an issue, as I have the receiver setting out in the open, and also set the cooling fan default to continuous just to make sure. I found out after the puchase that I did not but the receiver from an 'authorized' dealer and that the warranty may not apply. Yikes! Any ideas? Thank you. By the way, the DVD function works perfectly.....
Well, I have a solution and a question. First, why do you have S-Video hooked up from the sat receiver? is it a non- HD unit? Does it have component out? if so use it. Next; your receiver, as awesome as it is,it is 3 model years old and the HDMI firmware that was used in 2005-06 was version 1.1 which unfortunately for all of us was a "failed" format when using DSS,Cable, or FIOS. The problem was passing the DHCP copyright protection format from one source thru another to a third. Sounds complicated, I know, but that's what the issue is. The Good news is; the human eye cannot tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on any TV set 50" or smaller, and that is a fact. and the 2600 would only convert from s-video to 1080i which is equal to 540p. So, to make a long story short and understandable, if you use a good quality component cable to your TV set (Monster, Phoenix Gold, Apatchure, etc) your picture quality will not suffer and there is no reason to be upset at your receiver since it was firmware provided by HDMI not Yamaha and was a problem on every receiver made with 1.1 firmware. So here's what you do Hook up your Sat receiver component (if you have it) S-vid if you have to, and any other sources that are going to pass video thru your receiver either s-vid,component, or standard vid. The only exception would be a blu-ray DVD. I would run HDMI direct to your TV, then run digital coaxial for audio to the DVD Digital audio input of your receiver. You have an awesome receiver that has lots of cool features and a bullet-proof electronics! enjoy it! Hope this helps. If you have any more questions, post a comment and I will help some more.
