Does the GIU show up on the receivers screen? if so, scroll thru the menu to Manual(right click)-Video(right click)-On screen(right click)-(should be set to "always") If still persistant, post a comment and I'll help you further. Hope this helps

I have a Yamaha RX-V861 that has worked perfectly for years but now I am having an issue. My LG TV makes a popping noise and turns off. It does this 5 or 6 times and then everything works normally. My


If your unit has HDMI Control turn it off on your Yamaha but if it does not have it and your TV does then turn it off on your TV. You can test that theory by unhooking the HDMI cable and using any of the other forms of video output your Yamaha supports, so if you hook it up using component cables or even composite cables we know the problem is coming from the HDMI and the above steps should fix that.

Trying to hook up WII game, have new led samsung, with blue ray and sound system, doesn't seem to be enough connections for rca cord


That's because there's only one. You shouldn't be using the RCA (Composite) connections on your TV for anything other than what you have to( i.e., the Wii) or else there was no point in purchasing it to begin with. You need an HDMI cable for your Blu-Ray player, an HDMI cable for your Cable Box and I don't know what kind of receiver you have so I can't comment on that but in less it's more than decade old it must at least have the ability to to do digital optical or coaxial (perhaps it's time to upgrade to a fancy 7.1 system with HDMI?). As far as your video sources are concerned, if you use RCA (Composite) cables or COAXIAL (thick cable from the cable box) you will be getting a standard definition picture on your 1080p 240Hz Samsung LED HDTV. Don't buy your HDMI cables in a store as they'll charge you between $20 and $100 for them. Get them at Monoprice.com by clicking here for $2 - $3. There is no difference in quality between HDMI cables despite the lie that Monster Cable has perpetuated.
As far as the Wii is concerned, there is a Component cable available for it that will improve your picture dramatically over the RCA (Composite) cables (although not in HD because the Wii is an SD system). Nintendo sells it for $20 but of course, you can get at Monoprice for $3, here. I have this and it works great.
Good luck!

Unhook all HDMI connections unplug the yamaha and your tv from the wall outlet then try again. Most cases a copy protection kicked in or the hdmi had a error on the port, Worse case is hdmi controller board failure in ether the TV or the yamaha.

My wii won't play video through my Yamaha RX-V465. The audio comes through OK. I have a normal signal video component cable and i have connected the receiver to the TV with a HDMI cable. i have tried...


This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.

From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.

So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.

Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.

Connect my xbox on reicever


Hi,
If your xbox has HDMI connector then you HDMI cable to connect it to the receiver and another HDMI cable to connect receiver to the TV. Receiver should support both video and audio over HDMI.
If your xbox doesn't have HDMI, connect the video directly to your TV using whatever connector/cable is available (in terms of quality from best to worst: HDMI, component, s-video/scart, composite).
Then connect audio to the receiver via optical spdif cable.

I ned to know what HDMI to buy for my 50inch sanyo flat panal .I have satilite service How many cables ,whats the best .I have connection diagram and dsl.Just need to know what to buy .It is a SANYO 50...


There are no specific HDMI cables to buy for particular models. While there are a variety of different kinds, all should work. Your TV comes with both the Composite cable jacks and the HDMI ports. For High Definition devices, these connections should be used. Cable boxes typically use both. It is merely a matter of preference. My cable company provides Composite cables with my Digital Box, but that varies with ISP Providers. You can go to Walmart, Best Buy, or any other store local to you and pick up HDMI and composite cables. Gold plated HDMI cables are the best, but expensive. Also, the longer you buy the more expensive it is, so be sure you know just what length you need so you don't buy too long or too short of a length. I hope this helps clarify.

Good Luck,

I Have just bought this reviever (Yamaha Rx-v365)and im just trying to work out how to best connect all my devises. I have Tivo, Lg DVD player with both yellow, red white cables and blue green red cable...


Hi, firstly some terminology:
yellow cable - video composite (worst quality)
white/red - stereo analog audio
blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)

You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.

If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.

For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.

For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.

Yamaha RX-V663 - HDMI doesn't work.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a workaround:
  • as you posted, audio out of the DVD goes to the receiver;
  • HDMI out of the DVD goes to the Schaub Lorenz LCD.
Even if it were a compatibility issue or HDMI processor issue on the receiver, the above should get you going.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Composite_to_component_OUT_converter


they do make a adapter that converts composite video to s-video. Another way is to use a audio video receiver that converts composite video to hdmi. The model # is rx-v663 yamaha a/v receiver sold at bestbuy. The adapter which would be a lot cheaper is also on bestbuy.com you can type in composite video to s video converter in search box on bestbuy.com or google it.
