    Same here. I just purchased a Wii and tried the Auxillary input and got nothing. I have a singel HDMI cable from the receiver to the LCD. If I select the "Aux" as the input, why should I need a another cable from the Will directly to the LCD?

Just a thought, but, how do you have your TV/Monitor hooked up to the Yamaha unit? If your only connection between the receiver the and the TV/Monitor is an HDMI cable, and you are plugging your WII into the front v-aux jack using composite video, the receiver will have no way to send the video signal to the TV/Monitor. The receiver upconverts all composite video and S-video signals to component video signals. This means that if you only have an HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV/Monitor, you will also need to establish a second, component video connection between the receiver and TV/Monitor to handle the upconverted WII video signal. You will probably also need to switch your TV/Monitor to use that input when you are using the WII.

Of course, if you already knew this and have it set up that way, this answer won't help you at all!

My Yamaha RX-V661 powers on when I hit the power switch. After two seconds it goes to stand by.


try holding the 'straight' and 'audio select' buttons and press power. What does it say on the front panel? Should say some kind of protect: I, DC, PS. This will help narrow down where your problem is.

My dish network remote control will not control a sherwood rx-4109 am/fm stere rec.


Try these codes: 670,646 The steps for programming these remotes are below:
1.) Hold down the aux button until all four mode buttons are lit.
2.) Enter the three digit code and press pound (#)
If those codes fail try the steps below they are for what is called a Power Scan. This should resolve this unless there is a compatibility issue.
1.) With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct AUX button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
2.) press 0 for a TV, press 1 for a VCR/DVD, press 2 for any other device, then press *.
3.) Press and release the large red Power button.
4.) Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

Tell the difference between the Aux input and V-Aux input


'Aux' is a general label for any Line Level analog stereo input like DVD, VCR, TV, DBS, etc. They are usually electrically identical and interchangeable except for PHONO.

V-Aux on this unit is on the front panel for conveniently connecting a video device. It has analog and assignable digital audio plus S-video and composite video.

There is nothing labeled 'Aux' on this unit.

I dont know how to connect the wii to my rx-465 receiver.


The Wii AV cable should have a red/white pair of Audio Output jacks on it.
Check out pg. 8 of the Wii manual: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloads/WiiOpMn_setup.pdf
Connect the red/white RCA plugs from the AV cable to a line level audio input on your receiver. If you use AUX IN, then select AUX IN on the INPUT selector switch. You should then hear the sound from the Wii through your receiver/home theater system.

30176 is the code you need . Press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter code. If you want the remote to control the receiver all the time, press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter 993 then press Aux. Aux will flash, now press Cbl and Aux should light up when you use the volume.

No picture from wii


The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately.
Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere.
If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube.
