Yamaha RX V-663 video output into old Coaxial TV

Just got a new RX V-663 AV reviever. My existing TV is a 20 year old Sony with just a coaxial input. How can I get the video from the Yamaha into the Sony. Sound from the DVD player works great with the speaker system I just want to use the TV as a monitor until I can afford to upgrade.

You need a coax to RCA converter. Do a google search, Belkin makes one, Radio Shack probably has one too.

    If you're getting snow, your receiver isn't putting out a signal and you need to investigate why. Do you have the RCA jack connected to the video output on the receiver? The coax connected to the input on the TV? What signal is coming from the receiver, dvd, cable, vcr?

    I think I would start by running the dvd video output directly to the TV, see if you get a picture. If you do, you know something is wrong with the receiver setup.

I have a new Yamaha AV receiver rx-v381,trying to connect an old CD DVD player, Sony dvp-nc665p. I have audio, no video. No HDMI on CD DVD player. What am I doing wrong? Help!


On my Yamaha AV receiver, DVD video (usually a yellow connector) passes through to a video output which then connects to the video input of the TV.

Hi. I write from spain. I have the blu-ray LG


Have you tried the another optical cable? They don't tolerate dirty connections or small-radius bends in their routing. THAT (and the expense of optical cables) is why I always choose coaxial connections when possible.

I have an old Yamaha RX-V793. It works perfectly fine. Now I have a new LCD screen, a new DVD player and my new cable tv set top box. All 3 take and use HDMI. I'd like to be able to HEAR BOTH my DVD...


hi,
u can make connections only through digital inputs(optical and coaxial). u can connect the digital outputs of ur dvd and cable set top box to the receiver. no way to connect HDMI. HDMI is a high definition media interface. for using it u have to go for a av receiver that supports HDMI.
ok

IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT RX- V559 WITH BLUE RAY PLAYER


Yes. Assuming you unnamed BD player has digital audio output that is compatible with one that's available to use on the Yamaha.

OTOH, the coaxial digital input CAN be shared if you use an RCA-Y cable and make sure only ONE of the shared inputs is turned on anytime you use it.

If the BD also has Component Video conenctors you could run them TO the Yamaha, too, but I would opt for the BEST video from the BD to go directly to your TV or monitor, even bypassing the AVR if necessary. The fewer intervening connections and conversions, the better.

How to connect a sv5000 on a very old tv?


Does the SV5000 have a coaxial (Channel 3 or 4) output? Connect that output to the antenna input to the old TV. If your TV is so old that it has only a 300 ohm antenna input (2 screws), just use one those old adapters that has 2 scew lugs on one end and a coaxial receptacle on the other, connect a coaxial connector between that and the VCR's coaxial output.

Can I connect component av cables "in" to my Yamaha RX-V365 and connect "out" to my TV and get both audio and video?


Receiver does support 3x component inputs and one component output. Both these can carry only video signal, not audio. So you have to connect audio separately, either stereo via analog 2x RCA connectors and digital SPDIC via optical (2x) or coaxial (1x) cable.

1) Check to see if the screen says "EXT DECODER". If it does, press the EXT DECODER button again and this should fix the problem
2) Press input mode button until the display reads auto or digital. It may be set to analog.
