Re: right rear speaker has no audio
Swap the speaker wire from left rear to right rear if the speaker was from RR now work on LR side this prove the speaker OK then you problem in the receiver
If you swap the RR speaker to LR side and still not work then you
have that RR speaker open
Make sure you hook up speakers cable properly and not short from both terminal speakers and receiver the RED and Black poles
Let me know how you go

It could have to do with the settings on each input device (xbox & DVR) -check their audio settings. I have a better solution for your problem though:
Since HDMI supports 7.1 ch of digital sound, I'd recommend using the optical inputs on your HTR-6130 that are made for 5.1 ch sound. I agree that you should be getting sound via HDMI, I was able to from my xbox to my 6130, but it gets cut down to 2 channel sound (good, but pales compared to true 5.1 ch sound). It believe it has to do with Dolby not being backward compatible going from 7.1 to 5.1. Anyhow, in order to get an optical-out on your xbox, you'll need connect with the a/v cables that came with the xbox, along with the HDMI cable. Depending on how old your xbox is, and which model (like an elite edition, etc), You may need to buy a special converter that will allow enough room for both an HDMI connection and the A/V connection. Trust me, I have an HTR-6130 with an xbox and a cable-provider issued box running through it. Optical is the way to go for this particular receiver since it only supports 5.1 ch sound. You can still use the HDMI ports on the receiver as a switch between your two devices, or you could choose to bypass it if you TV has more than one HDMI input port.
the guy was wrong. the analog and digital portions of the receiver are totally separate.
according to Yamaha:
"Be sure to connect your video components in the same way you connect your video monitor to this unit. For example, if you connect your video monitor to this unit using an HDMI or COMPONENT VIDEO connection, connect your video components to this unit using the HDMI or COMPONENT VIDEO connection."
Swap the rear right speaker to rear left make sure the speakers and speakers wire are OK
Initializer the unit as follow set the unit in STBY mode if you are not sure which mode turn off the unit with the remote control now the unit is in STBY mode. Pressing STRAIGHT and AUDIO SELECT keys simultaneously then press power STBY button on front panel the display will show 1: Analog ByPass use the PROGRAM knob to move up to 13 PRESET INHI then press 1 or 2 keys to change to PRESET RSRV then turn off power now unit reset to factory just turn on and try it
Let me know how do you go
PS: this model have an update firmware if your is still under warranty bring it back to Yamaha or 1 of the service center Yamaha they are able to update for you. Due to confidence I can not post that firmware sorry for that inconvenience
URNOTME is right. HDMI is great and all, but wish i would have spent a few more dollars on a unit that supports switching. htr-6130 does pass-through, so you have to use seperate audio connections. really there is no use running HDMI into the receiver and then into the receiver and THEN to the tv. just go straight to the tv, then run your audio either optical (best) or coaxial.
As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.
