    Let me clarify what I am trying to accomplish; I have the yamaha receiver, a satellite receiver, a dvd player, a roku and a hearing impaired husband who must use wireless headphones. I am hoping to get sound from all the devices to the headphones and keep external sound for the rest of the family. I presently have the satellite and the dvd player working for him by using an RCA splitter. It just seems that if I can connect the headphones to the yamaha receiver he should have sound no matter which device is running.

    Hi Jane, could you please post the solution you came up with. I also want to have sound out of my speakers while at the same time get sound in a pair of Sennheiser 170 wireless headphones. I've tried connecting to the Sennheiser cable to the "Audio Out" jacks in the back, but it seems that doesn't send the proper signal (possibly to do with it being analog out and all devices in are HDMI / digital). In any case I'd really like to know how you resolved your problem. I want to get simultaneous speaker and headphone usage out of my Yamaha RX-V367 receiver. Thank you.

    yes, but if you use that it shuts down sound to all the external speakers

  • John Doe Dec 06, 2012

    That is how they are suppose to work when you hookup headphones, Any reciever with a headphone jack works the same way.

Does your reciever use a remote control?

If so, you should be aware that on many recievers and surround amplifiers some of the functions may only be accessible via the remote control (the best way to learn about it is to consult the user manual).

I have a Pioneer VSA-730 surround amplifier and the only way i can change the mix levels for surround/sub/center speakers is by a remote control. My friend had the same problem and, after reading the manual, he discovered that he actually needs to use the remote control to access all functions of the amplifier.

Good luck and best regards

SOURCE: Question, problem: How do I

Hi, assuming you can pickup a good digital TV signal online, you can certainly connect your digital audio output to the receiver using a standard Toslink cable with a Toslink mini-plug adapter. Here is an example of the cable you would need: http://www.nextag.com/norob/PtitleSeller.jsp?nxtg=7420a280505-3C5E1BE5D8BAF95C&chnl=main&ptitle=661011573&tag=888720410&ctx=jGibfICWCJ8Pl1v84x0Fy0POJ0U8nsKWXqtnWffvJ8FyQWcSXVGi1g9vyaWcaQl6ez45TKa57b5%2FQPHsf2qbe7UPiIvmhplfDiwRnUeRnuNffo5Uly2xM1dEbpxXiXph1zleMHrrwwQeoDFKL%2FFIFArXNlVU9QjoOHhXQmBAi%2FejvazjML5Cf%2BWhD4Y3DTkyoFZ4OkNC4quT8cPJ9p50Tjw0CICjAeGhwBq1G62s1KCHMhMj6UM65iXNpmD3t%2FW1fbp4ZeY9JF9YbzlzYf8ALD%2FrmBi6C2P5okVECy3ZzIw%3D

This will connect to the optical input of your receiver. You can read a bit more here: http://hometheater.consumerelectronicsnet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=47126

Are you intending to also export the video to a TV? For that, all you need is a VGA cable to hook to the VGA port on the Mac. I'm assuming your TV has a VGA input, or you would need a VGA to video adapter.

I hope this is what you were asking for. If not, please let me know and I'll try again.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Where and how do I hook my iPod to my htr 5440 receiver?


Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.aspc_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the PC's volume control for the headphone volume up. Of course, if you have a sound card with the usual green front speaker outputs that would work, too.

Use a 3.5 mm to 2Male RCA cable. Plug this into an AUX or CD input in the back. Adjust the volume on the iPod as well as the master volume to balance out the sound. The headphone on the receiver is output only.

Powers on and then off when i try to turn it on


Sounds like a capacitor fail. Take it apart and look for bad capacitors. They look like little soda cans. With silver tops. These should be flat . If they are bulging and leaking something or just budging replace them . Remember these have a + and a - side replace them in the same order.
REMEMBER CAPACITORS HOLD A CHARGE SOMETIMES ENOUGH TO KNOCK YOU OUT OR KILL YOU.

Your system is designed to interrupt the signal flow once headphones are attached. It can not be changed without internal modifications. There is no control to do this.
