Audio but no video from Sony Blu-Ray w/ HDMI hookup to RX-V663

Recently hooked up my Sony Blu-Ray (BDP-BX1) to my Yamaha RX-V663 7.1 Channel Receiver and I get audio but no video. The system is connected to a Panasonic projection unit. When I switch to S-Component hook-up for audio and video it works fine, but want to use HDMI hook-up.

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.  HOWEVER I AM USING A ONKYO RECEIVER.

  • Jim Soley Jan 10, 2009

    I have the same receiver and a Sony Blu-Ray Player.  We also have a Toshiba 52 inch HDTV DLP Television.  The other night while watching a DVD we must have hit a button on the remote for the receiver  (but do not think so) because we have had to re-set the HDMI Cables twice in less than a week.   The picture goes blank but audio works.  We believe the problem is with the receiver.  While watching TV we can sometimes get the picture back switching between scenes on the receiver remote.  Sometimes not.  Any help?  But I believe we have the same problem.  Also reading about similar problems with PS3 players.

Okay...my first contribution to any forum but I have the same problem (Yamaha RX-V663 and Samsung Blu Ray) and found the solution. The problem is you probably have your HDMI cables from your DVD player and reciever connected to a DVI input on your TV. The DVI may have problems communicating--not HDCP compliant. My system was working great then I hit a button on my remote...just playing around. I think it was the pure audio and I turned off the receiver. After that, the audio worked but there was no video. After many frustrating hours, the fix was to unplug the HDMI and DVI cable then turn the power off, cycle the power again, and plug the HDMI and DVI cables back in (the DVI was the last cable plugged in, not sure if that matters). By unplugging everthing you've reset the communication between the HDMI components and the DVI TV.

See page 18 of the yamaha owners manual, second to last note on bottom right of the page. It says there may be a problem...

I also noticed that the yamaha reciever was sending 1080p (my older tv is 1080I) and that is why the video wouldn't display on the TV. You can see this in the video signal info screen, unfortunately there is no setting to switch it back, just recycle the cables and power and it should reset.

Uncredibly frustrating but I got my picture back!

    Thank you sooooo much!! Suddenly, my 73" Mitsubishi DLP no longer had video when trying to watch a DVD using our Samsung Blu Ray player. I powered off the tv for a couple of minutes and unplugged Blu Ray player. I plugged Blu Ray back in, powered it up, powered on tv and VOILA!! You saved me hours of frustration and the price of a new Blu Ray player!! THANK YOU!!!!!!

We just purchased a Sony Blu-ray that included a JAE hdmi cable. Should it have a Sony hdmi cable? Or are the two the same company?


The brand of the HDMI cable makes no difference as they are all essentially the same. You will have no issues using a JAE branded cable on your Blu-Ray player.

I have an RX-V663 audio sounds flat


Let's deal with the turntable sound first - unless it's a self-preamplified model you would have to get an external phono-specific preamp to use with this receiver. Without one you'll get microscopically weak, tinny sound from the turntable. Google "RIAA curve" to see why.

As far as the CD sound through the Blu Ray player... for one thing it is flat, as in two-dimensional stereo. Compared to genuine surround from a movie it would be a letdown.

Can you better define 'flat'?

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

Cannot get yamaha rx-v663 to play DDTrueHD or DTS HD audio


If your Blu-Ray player has TrueHD or DTS-MA decoding, then it will send a already-decoded audio signal to your receiver. The receiver should then just recognize this as "Straight" decoding, because it isn't actually doing any decoding.

Hope this helps.

Want to add all of my video components to my rxv 663 reciever


The rx-v663 has 2 hdmi inputs, and 1 HDMI Outputs, The way I would run is 1 HDMI in dedicated to the Blu-ray, This will do the audio HD True digital, DTS-HD , then video out to the TV for HD 1080p resolution, On the cable box out do you have an HDMI 1.3? If so sport it to the other available receiver HDMI IN, net the same in/out as the blue ray, minus a 1080p result video which will only happen Blu-ray, cable will result 1080i HD and audio HD will vary with the signal broadcast format.

Yamaha reciever rx-v363


Thats because if you look in the owner's manual, it declares the fact that it will only broadcast sound from hdmi to monitor not speakers. For sound out of speakers need to connect additional audio cable.
