You cannot run HDMI from any source thru the Yamaha to the TV. The V661 is 1st generation HDMI headache. Version 1.1 which basically is useless. Don't blame Yamaha, it's not their fault, it's HDMI. All manufacturer's receivers prior to 09' series use either 1.1, 1.2, or 1.2a. and they all have issues. So, here's the skinny, run your audio to your receiver via optical or digital coaxial. Then run video directly to the TV via HDMI if you wish. The problem arises when you have more sources than inputs on your TV. Depending on the size of your TV can make a big difference in how you wire it. If your TV is 50" or smaller, just use component, the human eye cannot differentiate between 720p and 1080p and that's a fact. second fact, most TV shows are broadcast in a native resolution of 720p, the only real 1080p programming is on HDNET, Discovery,National Geographic and The NFL.
What I mean by that is the camera used to take the actual picture is a 1080p camera. Major money! so, that being said, if your tv is larger than 50", and it's 1080p not 1080i yes, you can see a difference. If you post a comment and list all your product, I can give you the best possible way to put it all together. I feel your pain and aggrivation! I am a Yamaha, Marantz, Proceed, and Adcom Dealer. I get it from all sides! If there's anyway I can make it easier for you, I will. Hope this helps

Do not use HDMI thru your receiver. Go directly from the Cable box to the TV. Connect coaxial digital or optical to your receiver. Your receiver uses HDMI version 1.1 or 1.2, which is riddled with issues. If you want to read about them, Google HDMI Problems and you can read for hours. Long of the short of it is; Don't pass HDMI thru your receiver, use the receiver for audio only. Hope this answers the question. Sorry for the bad news! I'm in the industry and have been dealing with these issues for a couple years now.

SOURCE: 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.

My receiver just shut off while watching a movie and won't turn back on. I checked the only fuse i could find. Where to go from here.


Press and hold the "straight" and "Tone control" buttons and press power. This should release the protect lock that the receiver is in. If it shuts back off immediately, then you most likely have a blown amp that will need to be repaired.

No audio from my rx v373


hdmi cable does both vid and sound so you should be ok if you have used this way to connect. if you have used rca connection try using another red white yellow cable cause they are cheap and break easy.

Yamaha purple screen rx-v373


I had this same issue. I think I finally resolved the issue by turning off HDMI Control (HDMI-CEC) on my Blu-Ray player. I had the Blu-Ray player plugged into a Yamaha RX-V375 (almost an identical receiver). I think the source of the issue was that my TV does not not support HDMI-CEC. Turning off HDMI-CEC on the Blu-Ray player fixed the issue. The Yamaha receiver already had HDMI Control disabled, and all the other HDMI devices appeared to have HDMI-CEC disabled or not supported.

In my case, the symptoms of the issue were that I would see the correct picture for a second on power up, then the picture would go away. For the Blu-Ray HDMI input selected on the receiver, I would see a solid purple screen and a blank screen for the rest of the inputs. Sometimes switching inputs fixed the issue, sometimes power cycling would fix it, but it was getting very annoying.

Need manufacturer's setup code for Yamaha AV Receiver RX-V373


Using 1056B03 universal remote from Time Warner. Several codes actually will turn the unit off and allow volume control. Or..I can turn on and volume control. Can't do both. I tried to use the receiver codes in the vcr mode, but the remote rejects receiver codes (i.e. only accepts vcr codes).

It looks like one or the other, not both.

Yamaha receiver picture disappears and reappears when changing volume


I had the same problem with HDMI input to the RX-V373 from a DirecTV receiver. The RX-V373 volume display and menus on the screen are HD only, which forces the monitor to switch modes when viewing SD.

My solution was to turn off 480i and 480p signals from the DirecTV receiver, and also turn off its native output. The DirecTV receiver then upconverts SD signals to HD. Changing RX-V373 volume then doesn't affect monitor video mode.
