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.

Its in 3 channel stereo listening mode. you can change this by cycling through the listening modes. there are normally 10 different modes including 5.1 dolby, theater, stadium, 2 & 3 channel stereo...etc.

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.

We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?


component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

How do I connect my DISH, TV and Blu-ray. Right now I have my DISH satelite HD cable connected to the TV, and a HD cable connected from my TV to the Blu-Ray. The problem i'm having is the sorround sound...


hi,
Is there is any optical digital output in your satelite HD. Then connect that optical digital output of satelite HD to the optical digital input of your surround system (blue ray player) using an optical cable.
Then press the function button on the remote of surround sound system (blue ray player) and select D.IN. (D.IN means DIGITAL IN). You will get the audio through the surround sound system. if you need any more assistance fell free to contact me through fixya.
ok

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)
