Question about Yamaha RX-V663 Receiver

Composite a/v and s-video picure look like hell.

I'm really confused over this one...i had this receiver set up to a sony trinitron tube tv and all my systems (nes, snes, n64, saturn, ps1, dreamcast) using composite a/v and s-video picture looked perfect. I recently purchased and new sony bravia lcd 1080p kdl46w4100 and tried using the same systems in the same slots on the receiver (composite and s-video) and now all but the dreamcast look like hell with flickering light and the letters just look awful on words. the picture comes through, but it looks like the connection is disrupted or something. i know i have a lot plugged into this thing, but there are enought slots to support them. any component connection looks fine, and i haven't been able to test the hdmi. if i plug those systems strait into my new tv, they look phenominal, so i know it's not the tv. the reeceiver worked with my old tv so i know it too works. and all my cables are new monster gold plated high-dollar stuff, so i know they work...what the heck is wrong here?

We found that we had to chose one input (VIDEO 7) only and then switch the type of reception we wanted (DVD, Tivo, etc.) by using the receiver remote control - the reception we had on the other input channels that we normally used to view Tivo, etc. had awful pictures, but they were great as long as we used just the one input.

Make sure you didn't get the video line out confused with one of the audio lines.
If using composite video the connection should be yellow and the left and right
channels should be red and white

I'm a little confused by your use of 'composite' with audio, as in "Does anyone know what would happen if I ran both composite audio and optical audio both to their respective TV/SAT IN input jacks on the STRDE935 ?". What is composite audio?

The manual claims on page 48 that you can't record digital audio out to the analog REC OUT jacks.

http://www.retrevo.com/s/Sony-STR-DE935-Receivers-review-manual/id/387dj981/t/1-2/

I say 'claims' because the engineers or manual writers clearly are not as creative as you are in trying to wring as much utility out if this unit as possible.

I can't find an answer but I would offer this - if you are recording anything though any AVR, as soon as you choose to monitor the audio the digital input is usually disabled.

And I would be curous to hear more about what you're doing and how you finally achieve it.

Hello

In time as the Sony Trinitron ages it begins to have power issues. While this can be true of most tube televisions it's the rate and severity at which this happens to Trinitrons that makes it particularly of note. Many Trinitron owners have complained of the Trinitron set turning itself off randomly and frequently. Some sets have failed to stay on for longer than a few minutes at a time. Eventually some sets will not turn on at all. These problems grow more severe with age.

Check the power cable running from the Sony Trinitron 32. Make sure the cable is completely inserted into the power connection on the rear of the TV as well as the local power outlet.

Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet, then plug it into a different connection. It is possible to electrical outlet has died, forcing you to obtain a power current from a different source.

Check the cable connection running from the cable/satellite receiver or VCR. If the TV is on but no picture is on the screen, the problem is most likely due to a connection issue.

Power off the cable/satellite receiver, then press the "Video" button on the remote control to switch the Trinitron 32 to the video input signal. Turn on the cable/satellite receiver and the programming now loads onto the television screen.

No video/display on TV when using sony str dh 500


If your set up is HDR-AVR and TV all you need to do is go HDMI out from HDR to HDMI in(Sat.) of AVR and monitor out HDMI (or composite video) to TV. and select the Sat. input on the AVR. The sound is only comming from the HDR in this case and the composite video or HD video is being switched out to the TV when you select Sat. on your AVR

Trying to connect sony dvd player to hdtv


You will need some cables first. It's really not that difficult once you know what each cable does.

Since you're only connecting from the DVD player to a receiver, this should be simple.

There are 4 solutions depending on what cables you have.

Composite - Yellow, Red, and White ended connectors.
S-Video - Black 4-pin connectors.
Component - Green, Blue, Red and sometimes extra Red, White for audio.
HDMI - heavy cable with a wide/flat connector.

Composite connection - Connect the yellow end to the yellow Video Out of the DVD player and to the DVD Video In on the receiver. Connect the Red audio connector to the Red Audio out of the DVD player, the White connector to the White Audio out of the DVD player, and then connect those to the Red and White Ins for DVD Audio on the Receiver.

S-Video Connection - This is the same as the Composite video connection, but connect the black 4-pin cable into the S-Video out of the DVD player and into the In for DVD on the back of the receiver instead of using the yellow video cable. The S-Video cable is a video only cable and uses the same audio cables (the red and white ended cables) for audio.

Component Connection - On the back of the DVD player, connect the 3 video cables that are Red to Red, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green. These will be labeled Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. Connect these video cables to the inputs of the receiver the same way Y for Green, Cb/Pb for Blue, and Cr/Pr for Red. The audio connection is the same as composite and there should be a place on the DVD player that will tell you what audio is for Component. This is also the same on the back of the receiver.

HDMI Connection - This one is the easiest to connect as your audio and video are in the same cable. Plug in your HDMI cable in the back of the DVD player (there should only be one) and then to the HDMI connection for DVD on the back of the receiver.

Now...once you have your connections made, turn on your DVD player, set your receiver to DVD, and enjoy.

If your receiver does not have video inputs, you will need to run the video lines directly to your TV while the audio lines go to your receiver. This will mean you will need to set the receiver to DVD as well as change the channel of the TV to the input you have the DVD player plugged into.

I hope this helps.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV Color changes


Try turning down (off) the color during such an episode. If the image is tinted pink or green instead of black and white when you do this,you have either an intermittent short in your CRT (tube), which is terminal,or a gun drive problem, which may be repairable. If you're feeding it component instead of composite signal,it may just be a bad connection of the B-Y cable.
