Question about Yamaha HTR-5830 Receiver
I purchased this from Best Buy and had them install it. For some reason, I ran into this problem earlier today: I have it hooked up to my TV, my DVD player and Playstation/Wii consoles. I can get sound via the DVD player and Tuner, but it will not give me sound from the consoles or the tv itself. It worked fine last night, but today, nothing. Any ideas would be a major help. I emailed Yamaha, and I am still waiting for a reply, but I hope this will get it working faster. Thank you!
Is the dvd built into the unit? Im not sure. If your comfortable with the wiring behind the unit I can try and help you out. Im guessing your just using plain cable that your running to your tv. If so you should have a audio output in the back of your tv (the red and white one) there should be a RCA cable into this output (best buy would have installed it already). follow this cable down to the back of the Reciever and it should be plugged into the input for TV. Your Consols are a little more difficult. They can run them through your tv or bypass it. Ill tell you how to put them through your tv so that the sound from them will only come when the tv is on (not sure when else you would need it). The back of you consols you will have the 3 RCA's (red, white, Yellow) plug them into the back of your tv in the input ports... Playstation to 1, Wii to 2. There should be all the jacks needed to do this (if you have a newer tv). Now when you turn on your tv and make sure the reciever is turned to TV your should get your sound. Try the gaming consols, they should both work (you will need to switch the Tv to video input, usually by the source button). If you still get no sound but pictures try turning your volume up on the tv, if you have volume there check your settings on the tv for the volume output...some brands allow you to mute this. Hope this helps
