Yamaha reciever rx-v2200

Recently my yamaha reciever has began to act up and will only play pro logic sound. I changed the cables (I use 1 optical cable for dvd). When I put in any DVD it only plays pro logic even when i hit dvd auto the dolby digital light does not light up nor does the dts light come on. The display only shows the two from speakers not all 5.1 like it used to. sound comes from all speakers though but like I said i think it sounds like pro logic and the pro logic lihght is on

SOURCE: Problem with Dolby Digital mode

Hi Whitesox, thanks for the suggestions! I finally got to the bottom of the problem, and it turned out to be the new Toshiba DVD player I recently purchased (model SD5000). I never had to make any adjustments to a DVD player before to make it play dolby digital signals, but this new Toshiba essentially comes with Dolby Digital diabled as its default setting. You have to go into its setup menu and switch it's digital audio mode from PCM to Bitstream. What's strange is that even with the default settings on the Toshiba it would play in DTS mode correctly.

SOURCE: yamaha HTR -6130 DTS?????

First, the sound source must also be in DTS. DTS is typically not the default audio selection on any DVDs that have that'll have to select it.

SOURCE: I've lost all digital sound to my reciever.

Get into the cable box menu and look for audio settings, chances are your digital output from the cable box is off. If you still can't get audio, reply with your Cable Box Make & Model and I can help you further. Hope this helps

I have a Samsung smart tv and a yamaha RX-V592 there is no optical or hdmi on the reviever. I really would like to listen to my tv in surround sound. What can I do?

You need a new receiver, that unit will only do Dolby Pro Logic and all 5 speakers will play but you have to use the composite audio cables(The red and white cables for audio) to get the audio into your receiver and the yellow is video which you can run thru the Yamaha as well if you want any on screen adjustments that unit may have and refer to your owners manual
Net unit make sure it as least 5.1 and you can get Dolby Atmos on a few select models but whatever you get make sure you can pass you video signal thru with HDMI cables or component at the least, a couple of years ago I went from the Yamaha R-V1300 to their RX-A3020 and couldn't be happier, the new one which is the Yamaha RX-A3040 has Dolby Atmos but whatever you get and you are only running it at Dolby 5.1 at least each speaker will be discreet unlike in the Dolby Pro Logic mode you will be running, and 5.1 means 3 speakers in the front and 2 in the back or on the rear sides, so that is your 5 the .1 refers to the subwoofer because it get a one tenth of the signal the rest of the speakers can do so 6.1 means 3 in the front and 3 in the bab plus the .1 subwoofer. My system will do 11.2 but I will be just happy with 7.2 but until I move into a house I run it at 5.1. godd luck and feel free to hit me up with any questions...

Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei

The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...

AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

How to connect the PS3 to RX-V365 to get best sound qualitity in films. I have sony BRAVIO LCD wiht PS3 and I recently bought RX-V365 Yamaha home theater system. Please advice on connecting all three to...

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 plugged in my cable HDMI into my RX - V365 Yamaha reciever. and HDMI into my TV. I get video, but cannot get my attached (to reciever) speakers to play. Help

RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio. You need to connect the cable box also via spdif cable for audio to work. Look at the box if it uses optical spdif or coax spdif. If optical, you see that optical input on receiver is named DTV/CATV, so use also DTV HDMI for video. Coax spdif is named DVD, so in this case you will need to use DVD HDMI input.
Also you need to configure the inputs accordingly.

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).

Problem with Dolby Digital mode

If it is a new DVD that may be a problem, as signal changes may be frustrating this old machine... but it is likely the cabling from the DVD player to the reciever. Are you on the right channels/settings? is the optical cable and digital cable recieving digital output from your DVD player? Try changing those settings and you should be in good shape Thanks! good luck!
