I just bought a Yamaha 5.1 system with rcvr RX-V365 i have HDMI to tv then HDMI to RCVR then another HDMI to DTV. Problem cant seem to get picture AND sound together through RCVR. depending on what setting...


RX-V365 doesn't support sound over HDMI. It can switch the video+audio from HDMI in to HDMI out, but can't play the sound through the speakers. You need to connect the audio separately via optical or coax digital cable.

8:>Disconnect the A/V cable.
9:>Select what inut your tv will support 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. You can select more than one and even all if it is supported by your tv.
10:>Then select hdmi for your audio output, but since your ps3 is connected to the tv only select linear PCM 2channel. Check for sound on the tv's speakers. If check is good then proceed.

Yamaha RX-V663 wont play rear surround


The best way to get Dolby sound working is to connect the components using the optical links.
As long as you are using PCM the Dolby sounds will never get to your system. It's switching the Dolby sound off as soon as it detects PCM. I think the only way you will get Dolby on is via a optical cable which should let you have bitstream.

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.
