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.

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.

try running your A/C from TV to your reciver swichd outlet sound like it could be a grounding problem.This will put all ac from same outlet to the same componets.And will elimanate any difference in potencial

"I am also having difficulties in try to display the yamaha set up menu on the tv."
According to the manual the display menu for TV will not work with HDMI hook up.
I also have a Panasonic HD TV and can't get TV sound through my Yamaha AVR on "TV Sound" mode. Trying to use HDMI cable for this also. Do I need a digital optical cable or do I not have something set right?
