Question about Yamaha HTR-5830 Receiver
Up until recently, our receivers have worked fine. We have had a DVD player hooked into the DVD component jack, video games into the AUX, DTV into the DTV/CBL. Now, the only video output we get will be from the DVD component jack. Even when we switch the input to any of the other component jacks, we'll still get video feed from the DVD jack, but with the sound from the selected jack. For example, we have a movie playing in the DVD that's connected to the DVD jack. It'll play fine. But if we go to the DTV/CBL jack we'll get the sound from the DTV/CBL jack but the dvd video will still be playing on the TV. We have two receivers here that are both the Yamaha HTR-5830 and they're both doing the same thing. I'm thinking there's some setting that I can't seem to find via the manual. Any help? Thanks!

I own this receiver, and 18db is damn loud. Granted - your room might be significantly larger than mine with your speakers spread much further apart, or your speakers might be much less efficient than mine (this means that they want more power than the receiver can dish out - I have whatever speakers came with the "YAMAHA Home Theater in a Box" [the model that came with the HTR-5830]), but I'm pretty sure that the receiver doesn't get any louder (or at least not much). My suggestion is to turn down the volume to about -20db and work up from there after the movie has started. It might be easier to test the volume using music. The negative sign is deceiving - I rarely bring mine up to 0db. Also check the resistance - there's a red switch on the back of the receiver that switches between 6 and 8 ohms - make sure that it matches your speakers' resistance. If turning down the volume doesn't work, then post the problem again. Hope This Helps.

Did you try going thru the setup portion of the owners manual? IF you need the manual you can get it online free. I realize sometimes people read the manuals and don't understand the technical jargon. Let me know if you need further assistance thur chat session and i can possibly step you thru it better in real time. Good luck Guru Jay

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!

On , HTR-5930, composite inputs are routed only to composite outputs. The same happens to component input. You can't see video from V AUX if your TV is hooked-up on component output. Also, check if you connected correctly GREEN, BLUE AND RED on both receiver and TV SET.

make sure that the yellow video jack is on the tv out on the surround unit and is plugged into the video jack on the tv. You may have to change the input on your tv to Video1 or Video2 to get the pic to come in

If you are not getting sound on "Any" input except "multi channel" you have a bad DSP chip in the receiver.In short, you need a new receiver, it's a 500.00 repair. If you get sound on "All" inputs except "DTV/CBL" You need to get into the main menu of the Yamaha and select audio, toggle to input, then DTV/CBL and select "Auto". If you still do not get audio, it would be due to the version of HDMI software in your receiver. If it's under warranty, Yamaha will update hardware and software for you at N/C. If it's out of warranty, use digital coaxial or optical as your audio input for TV and run your HDMI directly to the TV. (The repair for this too would run 250-350) I hope I've covered all the possibilities. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more.
