    I'm having a problem connecting my CD player to the Yamaha AV receiver. I've connected my blu-ray to the Yamaha unit via HDMI and then audio via an optical cable. Problem is the Yamaha doesn't seem to accept the analog CD connection. There is an optical option on my CD player, but the CD optical connection on the Yamaha unit is being used by the blue-ray optical cable. I'm stumped on how to get the CD player connected.

If your home theater has an hdmi in and out then you wuol be better of connecting the blu-ray hdmi to your home theater then to your tv. If all you have are optical connections to your reciever then what your doing will work fine. Additionally if your blu-ray has built in decoders not present in your reciever and also has 5.1 or 7.1 analog outs you can connect them to a six or seven channel in on your reciever if it is so equipped and have the benefit of true-hd or other current audio formats on current Blu-rays

Pioneer vsx-5231 not pairing with Phillips bdp-2175 smart bluray player


have you tried to connect the Philips direct to the TV's hdmi?

Could be the resolution on the bluray is set to 1080p which may be out of range for the receiver or even the TV for that matter. If you can reset the output resolution of the bluray to 480p first, just to establish a picture then try 720P which all HD tv's and receivers can handle.

I did a quick search and could not find the resolution reset procedure for this unit. Other units will reset if you press and hold 2 or more buttons together.

You can do this two ways.

Way #1 connect your cable box to your a/v receiver with one hdmi cable. Connect your blu ray player to your a/v receiver with a second hdmi cable. Lastly, connect a third hdmi cable from the a/v receiver to the television. (3 hdmi cables needed this way)

Way #2 connect your cable box to your television with one hdmi cable. Connect your blu ray player to your television with a second hdmi cable. Connect your a/v receiver to your television with a RCA/composite a/v cable or with a fiber optic cable. Connect your cable box to your a/v receiver with a fiber optic cable or RCA/composite a/v cable. Lastly connect your blu ray player to your a/v receiver with a fiber optic or RCA/composite a/v cable. This method takes 2 hdmi cables and three sets of fiber optic and or RCA/composite a/v cables.

Can't get more specific than that without having the a/v receiver's model number, type of cable box, and television model number. Hope this helps.

You must connect from the Bluray both HDMI and SPDIF to the receiver, and turn TV volume down. TV does not send the sound
from HDMI inputs out digitally, only sound from TV channels.

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.)

Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

HDMI connection with Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Disc Player


Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have just completed this installation myself.
You are correct, HDMI to Amp Input from Bluray and then HDMI from Amp output to TV. Coloured cables are not required to operate the bluray now.
Good luck

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy
