Question about Yamaha HTR-5740 Receiver

Yamaha HTR 5740 surround sound problem

I had the setup working great with sound coming from my center, front right/left, and rear right/left until one day the audio would only come from my center speaker. One possible cuase may be my two year old nephew pressing a series of buttons on the system.

What is the setup on this system that makes it play in surround sound? The only way I can ever get sound now is from the center speaker playing only the left and right channels now. (At least thats what I think is happening) Also I don't have the remote with me, its been lost for about 3 months now.

SOURCE: Programming manufacturing code

I tried to program the remote supplied with my Time Warner HD-DVR, only to discover that ... using the proper Yamaha code only allows you to turn the HTR-5740 off ... not ON!

I had to get the programmable version of the remote, and use its "learn" function to assign the "power on" function to an unused keystroke combination on the remote!

SOURCE: HTR-5740 Subwoofer Hooking Up Issue

You can use a hi-level to low-level adapter. Just remember, the Yamaha does not send power (wattage) to the sub, just signal. You need to use a subwoofer that has an amplifier either externally or built in.

Surround problem with Yamaha HTR-5930 5.1 Channels Receiver


The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP


configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

Cant Hear Dialogue Over the Background Sound


The owner's manual should have a section on how to balance the system. I don't have one at the moment, but I believe that this model also has a setup tone generator option. Look in the owner's manual or online at Yamaha for a copy of it. This will contain the instructions for the setup.

Cant Hear Dialogue Over the Background Sound


I had the same problem, first you can download the manual online to see how to reset the speakers. next, make sure you have true digital audio input with a fiber optic or like connector. you should see little LED symbols of r/l/c/w/rr/rl etc. If you just see R and L, it is not getting a true signal.

But what worked the best was getting a better, devoted, CENTER speaker, not just a speaker in the center, but one devoted to dialogue.

good luck
