Why is it so important to have BluRay audio on an old TV? Or its video into the Receiver?
What purposes are served with unnecessary 'hops' through electronics that can't use it or improve it?
Get the digitsl audio from the BluRay into the HTR and give the TV the best it can accept for video. Your TV probably has a mid-fi RCA audio input, too. The BlurRay has an output for that, too, if you realy want it.
You can get a blu-ray clean lens kit. Just as with other dvd players, or even a long time ago VHS tapes, those heads have to be cleaned, but with dvd's it is the lens. It gives you a disk and instructions how to clean your lens.
Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.
Did you try going thru the setup portion of the owners manual? IF you need the manual you can get it online free. I realize sometimes people read the manuals and don't understand the technical jargon. Let me know if you need further assistance thur chat session and i can possibly step you thru it better in real time. Good luck Guru Jay
Select different modes on the remote or front panel and make sure all speaker that you have hooked up are showing on display. Are the Lt & Rt channels at least playing audio? If you want, i can step you thur some steps to try in live chat if you want today. Let me know as i have experience in this area! Sincerely Guru Jay
Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
