Is this problem only with recording or does your LP also NOT have useful volume for normal listening?

What kind of turntable is it? if it's a traditional unamplified turntable you can't just jack it into any old recording device. The small signal produced by a phono cartridge requires the pre-amplification provided by a Phono preamp (either standalone or in a receiver). The Phono section also applies a specific RIAA equalization curve to the phono output to make it sound 'normal'.

My cd skips at high volume could it be due to my wiring

No . More likely it's vibration from the beat of the music. Try adding dampening to the cd player feet or if you can move the cd play away from the speakers and or dance floor and tapping feet.

Unable to get record levels to peak when recording onto HDD. There are input sound levels but they are well below acceptable levels. Any clues as to how to get the unit to display the correct and thereby...

Your source may have a role to play in available volume being too low.

Page 84 describes Volume controls for both analog and digital inputs.

You don't really want to play chicken with 0 dB (all digital ones). Leave some headroom for unexpected peaks.

BTW: a digital copy of, say, a commercial CD with no volume modification will be at the optimal level that may meet but won't exceed the 0 dB level.

Problem with analog recording on Yamaha CDR D651

Your assessment that it duplicates CD's internally fits with an analog-only failure mode. Let's make sure the signal is getting past your RCA jacks on the deck...

Put the deck in a Rec/Standby mode and make sure an analog source registers adequate volume on the meters. If it's good there and doesn't change with cable swapping between the input channels, you're right, the problem is internal. Maybe the volume potentiometer itself has developed a dead spot. Manually rotate it throughout its range many times to wipe it clean.

If you have an external optical digital source use it to check the meters in digital recording mode to be sure they're about even. The same knob affects analog and digital levels.

If you have the deck connected via the traditional Tape Monitor circuit in a receiver you should be able to tell by ear if the one channel is dead or too low. This puts all of the recording circuitry including the volume knob in line with your receiver.

Does anyoe know how to record from LP to cd?

Use your tape out, or another line out signal from your preamp.... if possible - OR Sometimes you can pull out some connectors on the back of your amp (a Metal joint kindathing ;), to break signalpath between preamp and poweramp if its an integrated amp -
Use preamp out signal to feed your cdr ( Main purpose is to equalize out, the RIAA correction on a record)
Have you tried to google your question ? Lots of fine guides out there!!!
