Question about Yamaha HTR-6130 Receiver

Remap digital audio on Yamaha HTR-6130

I don't like that I am limited to the digital audio inputs Yamaha decided that we would need. I will never use the CD input so I would like to put a Blu-ray player there, or a DVD-R but when I switch the source to match it also changes the video source losing the picture.

Is it possible in the setup to remap what uses the digital audio inputs ?

Actually I found in the sound menu on the receiver that there is an input source setting changer for the 3 digital audio inputs. Also you can change the names of the other inputs to match your components needs.

Good work Yamaha.

How to connect a turntable connected to a yamaha a450 stereo amplifier...can I attache the a450 to the htr-6130 ?


If the turntable is newer kind you can connect it in any Stereo input like CD, VCR , etc.

If the turntable is older model you can only connect it to PHONO input (if amp has one) and make sure earthing cable is connected on Amp

Remember input is only stereo (unless your model has digital input) and select sound effect eg Pro Logic for enhanced sound,

I have hooked up my DTV box via HDMI to my Yamaha. I have hooked up my Xbox via HDMI to my Yamaha. I have Hooked up my Yamaha via HDMI to my Toshiba flat screen. I can get video from all but I am not...


It could have to do with the settings on each input device (xbox & DVR) -check their audio settings. I have a better solution for your problem though:
Since HDMI supports 7.1 ch of digital sound, I'd recommend using the optical inputs on your HTR-6130 that are made for 5.1 ch sound. I agree that you should be getting sound via HDMI, I was able to from my xbox to my 6130, but it gets cut down to 2 channel sound (good, but pales compared to true 5.1 ch sound). It believe it has to do with Dolby not being backward compatible going from 7.1 to 5.1. Anyhow, in order to get an optical-out on your xbox, you'll need connect with the a/v cables that came with the xbox, along with the HDMI cable. Depending on how old your xbox is, and which model (like an elite edition, etc), You may need to buy a special converter that will allow enough room for both an HDMI connection and the A/V connection. Trust me, I have an HTR-6130 with an xbox and a cable-provider issued box running through it. Optical is the way to go for this particular receiver since it only supports 5.1 ch sound. You can still use the HDMI ports on the receiver as a switch between your two devices, or you could choose to bypass it if you TV has more than one HDMI input port.

Receiver displays Dolby Digital while watching TV, but only 2 front speakers work. This is the case on only certain TV stations. I have a Yamaha HTR-6130


Depending upon transmmission bit rate, if the transmission is > then 6130 bit rate it will automatically change to 'STRAIGHT' mode and in this mode only two front speaker will work.

Trying to program my Receiver, a Yamaha HTR 6130 to the AUX on my Comcast remote, but neither of the codes they gave me seem to be working.


Do a code search from comcast. If you have the Comcast manual it shows you how to search for codes manually, it can take 15 to 20 minutes for you to do it, however, it should fid your code. The only drawback is that you can only control the volume and power, you won't have input or soundfield control. Hope this helps

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).

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.
