Question about Yamaha RX-V363 Receiver

Open Question

Cannot record from TV (RX-V363 & LG RH399H HDMI DVR)

I have a Samsung HD TV, HD PVR (Cable TV Receiver), Yamaha RX-V363 & a LG Video Recorder connected as the RX-V363 manual recommends. Everything works, except when I try to connect the video recorder as a DVR. Connected to the DVD ports, playback works. Problem is, when I connect to the DVR in/out audio ports, and turn the input on the Yamaha to DVR, it says I must check the signal cable? What am I doing wrong? Jakkie

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V663 Not Providing 1080 Signal

First let me say that you have stated your problem very well. I completely understand the issue you are having.

I have been repairing a/v systems since they started selling them.

By your description of your problem, it is obvious that you have isolated the problem to the Yamaha.

Despite what Yamaha tech support say's, it is their problem.

I have been dealing with tech support for a lot of different manufacters for many, many years. I repair under warranty over 20 different brands, but not Yamaha. I have repaired plenty of Yamaha receivers but none with this particular problem.

It is not uncommon to find tech support people who don't know as much as they should about their own product.

Since I don't have the instruction manual or a service manual forthis model I can only be of minimal help.

What you can do, if you have your instruction manual, check it over closely for this subject on how to change the settings for the HDMI. If you can not find this particular issue, it is possible that the Yamaha doesn't support 1080i. I would be surprised if it did not, but stranger things have happened.

Another thing you can do if you can still not find an answer to this problem is to take it in to an authorized Yamaha service center.

If you have recently purchased this Yamaha, it will be under warranty. They get at least 1 year. Tell them the problem you are having and if they do not know how to solve it right there on the spot, or give you an answer that satisfies you, leave it with them
to have it fixed. If they are an authorized service center they will have to fix it or get it replaced for you if it is under warranty. It may need a firmware upgrade to the digital board. If that is the problem, then they can do it for you.

Let me know if you need any more help.
Sorry I wasn't more help, but an authorized service center may be your best bet.

There is likely a static charge (voltage / difference of potential) between the the receiver and the TV.

They should have their grounds tied together. This should be covered in your owner's manuals.

In some cases, there may also be a stray voltage on the cable line's ground. If grounding the two together doesn't work, you may want to call the cable company (or you or a friend may be able) to check the cable line for a stray voltage or bad ground.

SOURCE: No audio after hooking up RX-V363 to TV monitor (from cable box )

The HDMI on the RX-v363 does not pass the audio.  You need to either connect an optical or digital cable from your audio source.  If it is a cable box or DVD player there should be audio outputs in addition to HDMI

Hi..
If youre talking about the set of 3 A/V plugs in the front then you need to connect to the Video Out (yellow) plug in the back that says something like "Front Video" or "video 3" out. Connect that to the display.

Depending on your tv output, you shpuld be able to hook your TV to receiver via audio output. Running your video components through your receiver will not give you the best performance anyway. Run your HD DVR to TV the way you have it then, if it's possible to run audio out from TV, via, RCA, digital optical, etc., to your receiver. The sound will be transfered through the TV. You may also be able to utilize component out from your HD DVR and a separate audio cable.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

this sounds strange, but is true. you need to run your digital audio optical cable from your tv to your receiver (after, of course, connecting tv/receiver via hdmi). so, hdmi from blue ray to rec - hdmi from rec to tv - then optical from tv back to rec. it's round about, but that is how yamaha says (and the only way it works) to do it.

Yamaha RX-V2700 skipping when playing a DVD on Toshiba D-R400


Sounds like a poor grounding issue between the units OR maybe they're not as compatible as the Mfg's say.

Could be a bad HDMI cable also. Most are made in the land of Nanking
