Xbox 360 dashboard will not show using Yamaha RX-V663
The Xbox 360 is hooked up through a component video cable to a Yamaha RX-V663. Video out is sent through HDMI. When a dvd is put in, it will play and we get a picture. Dashboard, however, will not come through. the tv gives us the screen saying "weak or no signal"

Re: Xbox 360 dashboard will not show using Yamaha RX-V663
I had this issue once before, recheck all the conenctions on the tv, and make sure that the HDMI plug in for the TV * if its the older model * make sure it is placed to HDMI not TV.

Long story short... No. Use your 663 for digital audio, Run video direct to TV for BLURAY & or Cable for 3d content. You can still switch all other video sources thru the receiver. Not cost effective. cost more to do it than you paid for it. Hope this helps
I had the same problem with RXV3900, was told by verizon and yamaha it's a software issue with the box. Verizon is suppose to be working on a new update, but no time frame for now. I'm using component to receiver, and hdmi to tv with no issues.
The rx-v663 has 2 hdmi inputs, and 1 HDMI Outputs, The way I would run is 1 HDMI in dedicated to the Blu-ray, This will do the audio HD True digital, DTS-HD , then video out to the TV for HD 1080p resolution, On the cable box out do you have an HDMI 1.3? If so sport it to the other available receiver HDMI IN, net the same in/out as the blue ray, minus a 1080p result video which will only happen Blu-ray, cable will result 1080i HD and audio HD will vary with the signal broadcast format.
try running your A/C from TV to your reciver swichd outlet sound like it could be a grounding problem.This will put all ac from same outlet to the same componets.And will elimanate any difference in potencial
Okay...my first contribution to any forum but I have the same problem (Yamaha RX-V663 and Samsung Blu Ray) and found the solution. The problem is you probably have your HDMI cables from your DVD player and reciever connected to a DVI input on your TV. The DVI may have problems communicating--not HDCP compliant. My system was working great then I hit a button on my remote...just playing around. I think it was the pure audio and I turned off the receiver. After that, the audio worked but there was no video. After many frustrating hours, the fix was to unplug the HDMI and DVI cable then turn the power off, cycle the power again, and plug the HDMI and DVI cables back in (the DVI was the last cable plugged in, not sure if that matters). By unplugging everthing you've reset the communication between the HDMI components and the DVI TV.
See page 18 of the yamaha owners manual, second to last note on bottom right of the page. It says there may be a problem...
I also noticed that the yamaha reciever was sending 1080p (my older tv is 1080I) and that is why the video wouldn't display on the TV. You can see this in the video signal info screen, unfortunately there is no setting to switch it back, just recycle the cables and power and it should reset.
Uncredibly frustrating but I got my picture back!
check if your input settings in the RXV663 for the S-video and composite are correct. Both connections are about the worst possibilities for video signal. What might help is powering of all other equipment not used when using XBOX or VCR, really powering off, not leave in standby.
Does your TV support analogue inputs? Than use them for the XBOX and VCR to connect directly to your TV for video, sound can still be connected to the yamaha.
