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.

How to connect Sony dvd player to onkyo TX-8511 receiver


The TX-8511 is an older AV receiver with only composite video inputs. Your DVD player may not provide this type of output as it's not capable of HD video. If your dvd player has a composite output with a Red, White & Yellow set of outputs, that will connect into the Video 2 inputs on the receiver. Your TV will need to connect up to the Video2 or Monitor output. You'll need a set of composite video cables with the red-white & yellow RCA type plugs.

Here is a link to the manual for this receiver:

Connect to Video Component


Check your receiver. It should also have a single composite video output jack as well. Usually one of the component video inputs on the tv is also labeled for composite use as well.

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 am trying to install DVD player/recorder to my sony strdh510 reciever get the sound but no picture. I plug the dvd as per manural green/blue/red out to DVD in green/blue/red what am I doing wrong


It appears you are trying to connect via "component" video - green (Y), red (Pr), and blue (Pb). Make sure the settings on the Sony is set to component - NOT composite. You can try composite - the yellow to yellow jack (from the DVD to receiver or TV), to see if that works, but make sure your settings are for composite. The audio are red and white, right and left respectively and are used for both schemes above.

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.

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

No component video output


Hope this helps

The Yamaha HTR-6030 offers two types of video monitor output: Component and Composite. You may need to connect both types to your television as the HTR-6030 does not have composite to component video conversion. In other words, to view your VCR on your TV, you need to use the composite video monitor connection. However, for a DVD player or other source that has component video connections, use the component video monitor output to your TV. If your TV has both types, you simply switch between the two with your TV remote to access the proper video monitor output signal from the HTR-6030.

No HDMI Output


My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

Problem:
ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

Symptom:
I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

Solution:
1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.

Composite Video hook-up question


Generally, you only need one 'full' set of connections. If you are using s-video, you'll still need audio red and white or fiber...not both. Fiber is better. Where are you going to get your audio from? That's where you'll want to direct your feed. Some people cheat and run the red/white to the TV when they're too lazy to turn on the receiver! Mute it if it annoys you.
