Well, first of all, the method you are using is the lowest quality. You should upgrade to a toslink(digital optical cable) or a digital RCA cable. The toslink is the best all around. But it is normal for some devices to have higher sound output than others.

    Also, make sure to turn your televisions internal speakers off. Run all of your cables to the receiver. There is no need to run one to the televisions input unless you want to use the internal speakers for late night viewing. But still expect there to be some sound level difference between devices. Shouldn't be 10db unless you are using a VERY old DVD player or VCR. I still HIGHLY reccomend the TOSLINK cable, the amphenol optical glass inside really delivers the digital signl superbly! If your components do not have a optical digital output, then the next best would be the single RCA digital. But I know the receiver you have has TOSLINK inputs. Your HDTV cable box should have TOSLINK output. Evn easier would be to use an HDMI cable to your receiver. Then you wouldn't need to run a toslink for the HD cable box. Sounds like you are using the component(RGB) cable, and RCA(RW) that came with the cable box. These are decent cables, but you will find the ones I reccomended much better.

I have a yamaha htr 6130 receiver. Hooked up to it are a dvd player, cable box, and the t.v. Where (which inputs) do I put in the wii connections? I know it's the yellow, white, red ... but there are so...


Your problem is not the Yamaha reciever. You need to figure out how to switch your tv remote to the inputs you have tried to plug the Wii into, Your TV remote should have some sort of "source" or "input" selection button, or it may have a row of buttons that are labled. Without knowing the brand of your TV or seeing the remote, I can't be more specific, but clearly this is a tv issue. You could also use the video out on your 5.1 reciever, but first solve the tv remote issue. Keith

No sound unless VIDEO signal is plugged into receiver


Connect the DVD player audio with digital coax into the digital audio connection as you described and the DVD video directly to the TV. Now switch the input mode on the receiver to DVD. Then switch the video output mode on the TV to correspond to the input you plugged into. Any source in 5.1 dolby digital or dts should now work properly and have picture too.

No Dolby Digital through DVD player


Have you configured the digital output settings on the DVD player? You may need to set the digital output format in the DVD player setup menu. If it is set for LPCM then you won't get sound. It has to be set for bitstream and yoou may need to tell the player what output to use.

As you didn't mention the brand of DVD player, I can't really give you any detailed instructions.

Also try using the optical cable that you have connected to the cable box to test it and see if you get any output on that connector. If yyou do then it is a setting in the amp that is not configured properly,

Best of luck

Cheers

Not sure if this is your problem, or not, but the red and white wires are for audio. There is a separate yellow wire for composite video. Alternatively, you can use the red/green/blue (RGB) connector cable for component video.

You may need to set up the receiver for your speaker configuration. There should be a setup menu on the receiver, and that will allow you to tell the amp what speakers you are using, and what inputs you are connecting what devices to. You may also need to set your DVD player, cable box and TV for the audio stream you want to use. PCM or Bitstream to be more precise. Also make sure that the sound output is set to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Digital and the input signal is in stereo or surround.

Best Wishes.

No Audio Coming Through On HDMI DTV/Cable INPUT


The HTR-6130 cannot decode HDMI audio. It can only act as an HDMI switch. To get the audio from the cable box to be output from the HTR-6130, you will need a separate audio connection (e.g. RCA cable).

The HTR-6130 does not decode the audio from the HDMI inputs. It only acts as a switcher. You will need a separate audio connection from the cable box to the HTR-6130.

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.
