Question about Yamaha RX-V463 Receiver

5 Answers

All speakers not working with TV

The surround sound works well with the DVD (Blu-Ray) system (all 5 speakers) but when I try to use the 5 speakers with the TV, only the two front speakers (oh, and subwoofer) work.
I cannot get any sound from the center and rear speakers.   So, the connections must be right... I guess??
Thank you for any help,
Enzo Neri

Well, your T.V. isnt built for surround sound is what it sounds like, or doesnt in this case.

Your T.V. is probably STEREO output, So if your AMP is set to surround, it is only getting sound to the two front stereo.

You would have to change the AMP to display the sound out to all speakers at the same time in order to get sound in all speakers.

Just to be sure, you know the difference between surround sound and just sound comming out of all the speakers right?

Surround means that most of the sound comes from the front three and subwoofer and background sound effect, like say a passing helicopter in a movie, starts from your back left and travels to your back right, as the helicopter in the movie flys around into view .Other sounds effects like in say Silent Hill for the PS2, will have backfround noise like crickets and thing in the background and you hear them.

Just plain sound out off all the speakers at once is different, in this setting, you would hear the helicopter or cricket all around in every speaker.


Now im just explaining to be sure, im not saying you dont know or anything.

So, your AMP will play surround sound from your DVD player because most new Movies are made with Surround sound output. some are 5.1 and some are 7.1

The first number indicates how many speakers channels it outputs to and the .1 is for the sub woofer.

So, if you watch say T.V. and your channeling the sound through the AMP, it will probably only come out through the FRONT and FL +FR speakers and you may get some subwoofer sound on the lows.

Standard T.V. channels or cable isnt usually in surround.

If you just want to have all the sound in all the speakers because you want a sort of simulated surround sound, yo will have to switch the setting on the amp.

It verys by manufacturer, but the manual should tell you.

It may be DTS or Something like that.


Hope this helps, and if not, sorry.

Also, what kind of T.V. is it? Does it output surround or stereo?

Im betting its only stereo output.

Connectiosn are right but you may be selected Dolby Pro Logic in receiver. Try out with simple surround mode to get sound in all speakers.

No surround sound in TV mode


Surround sound will only work if the source signal is coded as surround. Many older TV broadcast programs are stereo only. If your surround sound is working with a DVD or blu-ray then the broadcast source is the problem

I want surround sound. How do I hook up my audio 5.1 RVC-884VBK, with my HDbox and LCD TV? It's too confusing. What hooks to what? Currently the HD box and blueray DVD is hooked straight to TV ...


Does you television have an "Optical Audio Output"? This would be the best and easiest way to get surround sound from your system. If your TV has an optical output the you can use an Optical Cable to connect the TV to the reciver. This way whatever you are watching from the TV will be in surround sound. The HDMI connection sends a surround sound signal from each device to the television. If you connect it to this output on the TV then make sure the optical output is turned on in you telivison's menu. If your TV does not have an Optical Audio Output then you will need to connect each optical output from the blu-ray and HDbox to your reciever. Your reciever will need to have two Input channels(one for each device). Then you can select that input to the device(blu-ray or HDbox) that you are using. The optical cable is the best way to go for surround sound because it is pure digital and produces the best sound. If the HDbox or Blu-Ray does not have an optical output then you will need the six rca jacks to get the surround sound. Let me know further info on what you have so I can assist you more.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

Problem for Pioneer VSX-818V-K 5.1 Channels Receiver Surround sound doesn't work, display reads 2CH IN,surround speakers are enabled,automatic test will find surrand speakers


Test with an surround sound media ie. Blu-ray or DVD)_. Disconnect the front and all other speakers that are working to see if sound from the missing speakers are heard. If this doesn't work then start by tracing and checking all the wires from the receiver to the speakers for bad/shorted/open connections.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL. THANKS & GOOD LUCK.

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.

No sound


I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.

The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.
