Question about Yamaha HTR-6140 Receiver

The HDMI "input" ports damage output ports of connecting devices

I've connected a cable box HDMI output and a Blu Ray DVD HDMI output to the HTR HDMI input. The connection worked at first however after a few days, both device's HDMI output ports no longer output video. I've tested them by connecting them directly to the TV. The component video of both devices still work.

I believe the HTR HDMI "input" port is blowing up the HDMI output ports of devices that I connect to it.

I have replaced the cable box and am thinking about testing my theory by connecting it to the HTR again.

Has anyone heard of this problem? Is there a non-destructive way to test my theory?

Thank you,
Norm

    I've tried different cables, and re-connecting multiple times and the HDMI ports appear to have failed after time connected to the HDMI input ports of the HTR.

    When my replacement cable box came, I used the same cable to connect directly to the TV and it works. Thanks anyway.

    I have exactly the same problem . My reciever is new but if I only slightly touch the HDMI cable the picture on tne t.v. is lost. However, if I wiggle the other end of the cable that connects to my Hd box or T.V. the picture is not affected. It seems to be a problem with the reciever 's HDMI inputs as opposed to the cable? In addition I had to return the first reciever I bought (same Yamaha) because the DVD input was not working on it. Any solutions? I probably will end up returning this reciever. i don't want something new that already has issues that may turn into bigger problems. I'm assuming this is not a widespread problem with recievers?

I know this sounds stupid, but have you "toggled" or "played" with the HDMI cables? are they the same manufacturer? HDMI channel connections are very fickle. If just one connection is not exactly correct, they go to a limp, no go status. Since they run at such a minimal voltage, i can't see them "blowing" the outputs on the devices.however....if your cable has a serial type output for video only, I would connect the hdmi convertor to it and see if it works.

I have red,yellow& white come out my dvd and only white & red plug in on the back of my tv how do i make that work and which source and channel i put the tv on


Red and White are audio, yellow is video. On the back of the TV there should be a yellow jack if it takes external inputs. There are two ways to connect your Blu-ray Player to your amplifier. Via HDMI output: Connect the player's HDMI OUTPUT to the corresponding INPUT on your amplifier using an HDMI cable. If your amplifier has an HDMI OUTPUT, connect that to the HDMI INPUT on your TV using an HDMI cable. See if these links help.

How to plug the blu-ray into the tv


It depends on the TV inputs. You will need to provide your own cables for most connections. If your TV has an HDMI in, get an HDMI M/M cable of an appropriate length. (Use an online shop for better prices.) This will provide the best picture. (If you have a sound system with HDMI ports, you may be able to go EDBC011 HDMI out to the sound systems HDMI in. Then the sound system HDMI out to the TV HDMI in.) If the TV has a DVI port, get an HDMI to DVI cable (again M/M). For this option, you will also need to connect the audio cable (see below in the composite or component video section).

Alternatively, this Blu-ray player has component and composite video out ports. Note: composite video is limited to SD. For these, you will have to connect the audio cables (RCA l/r audio or digital audio out). The composite video cable is included with the blu-ray player when new. For these, match the colors of the jacks to the wires to make sure that you have them correctly connected. You can put the audio cables to your sound system or your TV, as appropriate for your setup. For some TVs, you may need a RCA audio to 3.5 mm cable (all male ends) or adapter (for example RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M with an RCA audio cable or 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) . This applies for units with only the PC audio in.

Make the connections with the TV and the video player off (turn off the audio system if you are including that set of wiring). Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input (use the Input/Source button on your remote or TV). Turn on the audio system (if using one) and blu-ray player.

If you have problems, first try different cables. Try other input connections and try different devices. It's possible for either the TV or the blu-ray player input/output jacks or boards were damaged.

The manual for the EDBC011 is available here: http://www.elementelectronics.com/support_docs/edbco11/edbco11_manual.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I want to hook up a blue ray dvd player they told me to m=buy HDMI cable and this only goes to the tv, but doesn't have to go hooked up through the cable box


If you want to connect your blu-ray player to your tv, use the HDMI cable.
If you want to connect your cable box to your tv, I'd use component cables or get another HDMI cable.
You're right, you don't have to use your cable box to use your blu-ray player.

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern


The cable box IS an external tuner.  You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD.  Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables.  If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2).  If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.

Amp freezes when tv channel is changed


Are you using the HDMI for video AND audio or just video? Are you using the reciever as the video switcher by routing your devices into the amp and then from the out of the amp to the TV and then back to the amp from the TV HDMI output and the digital output? You may have a loop going on and the amp can't handle it.
If you are coming out of the TV with both HDMI and digital hooked to the same input selection on the amp and have the amp set for auto signal select, it could be throwing the amp for a loop and causing it to freak. From what I can see in the specs for that amp it has 2 HDMI in for connecting a HiDef Sat/Cable box, a DVD or Blu-Ray player or a gaming console, and then 1 output to the TV. HDMI handles both audio and video. Disconnect the digital cable and just use the HDMI for both audio and video.
The optimal set up would be as follows:

With a cable or sat box with HDMI out, go to the HDMI input to the TV. From the TV use either HDMI OR digital to the amp, not both. If you have Blu-Ray or HDMI DVD, connect that to the other HDMI input on the TV.

If the TV has only 1 HDMI input then connect the Cable or Sat box to one of the amp HDMI inputs and the Blu-Ray/DVD to the other and then from the HDMI out to the HDMI in to the TV with NO audio cable from the TV to the amp. Then use the cable remote to change channels.

See if one of those connection maps works for you.

If you need more help, let me know. Include the TV model and the digital audio cable interface type, whether it is optical or coax. It would also help knowing if you are using a Satellite or Cable box and which one it is.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


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.
