Question about Yamaha HTR-5850 Receiver
I have my HTR-5940 with 5.1 surround. I play my Xbox 360 using the optical input. As I play video games my sound cuts out for short periods of time whenever there are loud noises, such as many guns and explosions going off at once while playing HALO, or if I fire a powerful gun in Tom Clancy's VEGAS. My question is if there is a noise reducing function that is supposed to protect me from hearing unwanted 'noise' and if it can be turned off. Hearing my fantastic sound cut out in the middle of a heated battle is very frustrating.
Looks like you've got the best connection available - initially I thought it might have something to do with decoding the prologic signal from the analog input, but obviously not! And since you've got the audio separate from the video it is unlikely there is any interference from the video signal in the cable. Have you tried a different DVD player (I reckon that is most likely)? Also try connecting the video signal DIRECTLY from DVD to the TV if you aren't already doing so (you are anyway aren't you - the HTR 5660 doesn't have HDMI out does it?) Finally, if you have some spare cables around, try changing them - see if you get the same response when using component video cable instead of HDMI.

You may reset your unit, to do so here is the procedure.
1. Depress the MASTER little Button so it has to be in the OFF position
2. press simuntaneously the A/B/C/D/E and TUNNING/CH > buttons and the press MASTER again
3. Keep the two buttons pressed until the SLEEP blinks on th display, at this point you will see a message that last for maybe 3 seconds,
4. after the message you will see the number 1 and a series of numbers on the first row and the word MARGIN on the second row.
5. Turn the PROGRAM knob until you reach tothe number 11 FAC PRESET on the first row and PRESET INH on the second row
6. press the TUNNING/CH > button once, and the message on the second row will display PRESET RSRV
7. Press the MASTER again and your unit will have the factory settings.
I Hope this solve your problem

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!

if it is a 4 code try 0176 , if it is 5 try 30176. dont forget to program the remote to turn the receiver up and not the box or tv

somewhere along the way something is shorting out.
First I would check the impedance of your speakers most common are 8ohm speakers and these can be driven by most amplifiers.
Some brands of speakers are 4 ohm and even less are 2 ohm. These lower resistance speakers put a great deal of strain on most amplifiers and may cause them to go into "protect" mode and temporarily shut down.(less resistance requires more ampsrage to drive them)
Next thing to check is to make sure that none of your speaker wires have any loose strands that may be shorting out either at the speaker terminals on the amplifier itself but also behind each speaker.
Another test would be to connect 1 speaker at a time and turn the volume up to see if perhaps the short is being caused by 1 particular speaker or 1 particular channel for example it may be your front left amplifier that is failing causing the entire system to shut down.
If you can't diagnose the problem on your own you may have to have a service tech look at it. I always caution people to first establish a "value" on any item that may need repair and then decide the maximum amount of money you would invest in repairing the unit Taking into consideration that 1 hour of labor and a relatively inexpensive part can easily add up to $100 to $150.
In the past when I have had similar issues it usually came back to being something basic that we overlooked in the installation, Ie: a bad cable loose connection etc.
