Question about Yamaha HTR-6130 Receiver

Can't get audio from HD TV to run through Yamaha receiver speaker

Both TV and receiver/speakers are new. I've connected the cables from the TV audio out to the receiver audio in. The receiver and speakers work on radio setting but will not produce sound from the TV.

Any suggestions appreciated....

    Actually, I finally figured out that it was the programing of the received that was causing my problem. The hookup was fine, but the yamaha manual is very difficult to understand on the programing/operation portion. BTW... the TV sounds great thru the receivers and speakers.

    On my receiver it shows I have only my front left & right speakers hooked up. I hear sound through all of my speakers when using analog cables. I went and purchased the top of the line optical monster cable to run straight from my receiver to my samsung 23" LN-T23454H. I am just trying to get my 5.1 digital surround sound and I am about to throw the thing through the window. Super simple. Optical cable plugged into DTV/CBL going straight into my TV's Digital Optical Out port. HELP!

Be more specific!...how is the tv hooked up? hdmi, component, straight to the tv, or into the amp then tv?....what audio out? optical, digital? also what are you trying to view? local programming? cable/sat? dvd? your best bet is to ignore video on the amp and go straight to tv. can't help u more until i have more specifics.

How do i connect my JVC screen tv so that i can hear out of my speakers


If your JVC TV has AUDIO OUT outputs on the rear and a provision in the initial set up screen to disable the internal speakers, you can connect to your Yamaha receiver and enjoy improved sound.

Yamaha rx-v2500 receiver how to hook up speakers


HI,

Follow these steps to connect a powered sub woofer to your receiver: You typically have two options when connecting a powered sub woofer. Input (1) on the rear of the sub woofer would be used when connecting the sub woofer to the receiver using speaker wires. You would then connect the main speakers to the opposite end, or output or the sub woofer to the main speakers. Option (2) would be using RCA line level output jacks, input (2) on the rear panel of the sub woofer directly to the single sub woofer output on the back of an AV receiver. blank.gif

How is the audio connected to the TV (be specific)?

Keep in mind that a TV is not generally an audio source as its programming always comes from something higher up the audio food chain than itself. Get the audio to your receiver from whatever THAT is, not the TV.

Yamaha RX-V365 unable to receive 5.1 audio from TV with HDMI


If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.

Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....

I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.

I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.

Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?

This note is on Page 11 of the manual:

Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor

================
"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.

TV/DVD surround sound through receiver


Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

If you're getting audio out of one speaker, it's likely not an issue with how the TV's connected to the receiver, but an issue with how your speaker's are connected.

If you run a "speaker test", do you get audio out of all your speakers? If not, it's likely you mixed up your positive and negative connections when connecting your speakers.

I have the same issue if I connect my digial audio cable from the Yamaha receiver directly to the HDTV. But, I get all 6 speakers working when I connect the Yamaha receiver directly to the Comcast HD box (instead of TV).

Setting up a Yamaha RX-V690 home theater system


you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as well...as it has been a while since you posted this.

No sound from Yamaha HTR-5990


You must be sure that you also have "audio" cables connected to the receiver to make this all work. As far as the TV is concerned, the same applies....accordianman
