Question about Yamaha RX-V461 AV Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Yamaha RX-V461 receiver and am trying to hook up my PS3 to it. I get video using my HDMI cable from the PS3 directly to the Hitachi LCD television. However, I try running an optical cable to the receiver to get sound and cannot get any. Any suggestions? I don't know how to do this. There's only two optical inputs on the back of the 461 unit and neither seem to provide sound.

    i have a similar problem. when i hooked up the audio using fiber optic, i get sound coming out of my speakers, but on my reciever it is showing only the left and right channels are being used instead of the left, center, right, rear left and right + LFE like it does when i go through the cable box. Sound comes out of all the speakers, but i don't think it's true surround. i have a yamaha reciever, but not the same model. i've never had this problem with any other dvd player. it has always shown surround

Use HDMI - I don't understand what you mean by "fire code". HDMI uses less cable involvement, where as component uses five cable to produce video - no audio. HDMI accommodates the audio signal as well. However, if you want 1080i, this will only work for component - you need 1080p for HDMI.

You can connect PS3 video via HDMI to receiver and from receiver via HDMI to TV. But RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio, so you have to connect audio separately via SPDIF digital cable. I think PS3 uses optical SPDIF, so you will need optical cable. If you can't find cheaps optical cables in your shop, you can try byuing from ebay ($1-5 max.)

I need to hook up a yamaha 465 receiver


It has two HDMI inputs and one HDMI monitor output for the TV, so assuming all your devices are HDMI-capable, YES.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

Intermittant Audio with Yamaha RX-V465 only from cable box


I have the same receiver... You can try pressing the Option button and choosing Signal Info to see what audio signal the receiver sees and if that changes over time. Maybe the cable box is not outputting according to specifications... TV can live with that, but receiver maybe can't.
You can also try to connect the cable box via SPDIF cable (optical or coax) to see if it helps or not.

Problem hooking up my Yamaha RX-V461 to my PS3


When you connect the optical cable to the ps3 you must change the output to optical on the ps3. To do this, startup your ps3 then go to settings then audio output settings and change it to Digital Out (Optical).
