SOURCE: No Prologic Surround Sound

im thinking the reciever is set to get its audio from somehwere other than the dvd, sounds like you did most of the troubleshooting but do you get audio out of the reciever if its just playing the radio or something other than a dvd?

Please check your TV settings and the optical cable.

Yamaha rx-365 reciever not showing all speakers


I,m not familiar with the Yamaha but most receivers are set up the same way. In your setup menu are the speakers marked on in the display?. Your DVR needs to be transmitting in 5.1 to start with. If this is the case then make sure you select the correct audio function on the receiver.

I have an RX-V663 audio sounds flat


Let's deal with the turntable sound first - unless it's a self-preamplified model you would have to get an external phono-specific preamp to use with this receiver. Without one you'll get microscopically weak, tinny sound from the turntable. Google "RIAA curve" to see why.

As far as the CD sound through the Blu Ray player... for one thing it is flat, as in two-dimensional stereo. Compared to genuine surround from a movie it would be a letdown.

Can you better define 'flat'?

Is there any upgrade avaiable to allow the Dolby Digital EX to remain ON (not AUTO) after the unit it reset? Per page 78 of the manual, it resets to AUTO, so I have to manually go into the menu to enable...


Enter the sound menu. Under the selection for extended surround, choose "on."
Then, under type select "EX/ES."

The way it is currently set for you, the movie software has to have a "flag" that your receivers' decoder must recognize in order for your rear surround speakers to function for a particular movie. Not all movies in DTS-ES or DD-EX have this flag encoded in it's software. So the rear surround channels would not be commanded by the software to be decoded and played automatically...thus requiring you to enable them yourself.
Setting it to "on" in the sound menu will take care of that problem.

Yamaha Receiver sound cuts out with Dolby Digital.


Your problem is related to HDMI technology not the Receiver. HDMI in it's current version 1.3b has worked out 90% of the current problems being reported by HDMI users. it's a problem with HDCP digital copyright protection and the recording industry not wanting us "consumers" to duplicate or record their DVD's. Your receiver and every other receiver with version 1.1,-1.2, & 1.2a just don't cooperate with BluRay and even HD Cable or HD Sat receivers. If you just purchased this receiver recently, return it and get an 09' model or equivalent with 1.3a or 1.3b HDMI technology. If this unit is "un-returnable" then, what needs to happen is you need to run component video and digital audio to the receiver OR Run your HDMI directly to your TV and run a Digital Coaxial to your DVD audio input on the receiver. Depending on how many sources you are running to the TV via HDMI will be limited to the TV's capability (how many HDMI inputs)

Now, if your TV is 50" or smaller, the difference between running HDMI and Component is unmeasurable to the human eye. So, if you have to run component, don't sweat it! just use good cable, ie. Monster, Phoenix, Translucent etc. I do theese installs every day, and I still prefer Component or DVI if available over HDMI. They just haven't proved the reliability to me yet and we're three years in! Hope this helps

No sound out of right main when watching DVR/TV or VHS


When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.

Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.

If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.

Rx-v563 backround music much louder than people when watching tv


I would check your center speaker wiring and setting. Then switch to a different audio setting (pro logic, theater...)

Center speaker still not working :(


all your speaker channels are working so your problem lies with a setup fault. when you watch tv you are only feeding a stereo signal into the amp. you need to select the internal surround sound generator. you need to select either the movie or surround function. the unit will convert the stereo signal to 5.1 channel surround.
