SOURCE: Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

You have to configure your DTV input to use optical audio instead of analog dtv audio (red/white plugs). Input assignment should be described in the manual. Come back to me if you have still problems with it.

Yamaha RX-V733 again. I am using HDMI cable connection between receiver and cd player. My question is where do I connect the HDMI cable on the receiver.


You use audio cables or fiber optic cables if the receiver has the necessary connections. HDMI is not used for cd to receiver.

How do I connect my Yamaha RX-V733 to a CD Player?


I don't see a RX-V733 on Yamaha's site. However, look for a stereo audio input on the receiver. Then use the appropriate audio cable or adapter for the CD player audio out.

Depending on the CD player, you should use either an RCA M/M to RCA M/M (red/white) audio cable or a 3.5 mm headphone to RCA stereo audio cable. (If you don't have a headphone to RCA stereo audio cable, you can use adapters on either side. Examples: 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter to RCA audio cable as above or 3.5 mm M/M cable to 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M audio adapter, depending on which cable you want to use and where you connect the adapter.) After making this connection, turn on the CD player, select the appropriate input.

The connection for an external audio device (like a CD player) is shown on page 31 of the manual for the RX-V773. Even if this is a slightly different model, the image may help. The manual is available from Yamaha on the product page: http://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/rx-v773_g/?mode=model . Click on the Support tab. The direct link to the manual is http://download.yamaha.com/api/asset/file/?language=en&site=au.yamaha.com&asset_id=54075 .

I hope this helps.

I cannot figure out how to get sound through my Yamaha RX-V361 from my LG 37CS56 hdtv


Are you using any kind of Decoder or Set Top box to receive your TV signal?
If so you can connect the RCA OUTPUT from your cable or satellite decoder, to the Yamaha inputs. See the picture I have attached for you.
Then when you want to hear the sound from there, select DTV /CBL input on your remote control of the Yamaha receiver.


Or you can locate the SOUND or AV OUTPUT (Red and white RCA connection) at the back of you TV, and connect the cables from there to your Yamaha receiver.9_9_2012_6_50_32_pm.jpg

I have a yamaha Rx-v361 i get sound when in DVD mode, SAT mode but no sound in TUNER or AUX (MP3 player) modes, i checked all the wiring in the back of the unit and everything is connected. please advise


Tuner is internal so there's no way wrong 'wiring' could be the problem there.

Does the tuner actually 'tune' a station?

If you're using V-Aux on the front panel for your MP3 player, make sure you haven't assigned V-Aux to a digital function. Page 48.

Yamaha RX-V361 DVD cuts off w/ check SP cable message


This message means that speakers are not connected properly. What is their impedance? What is the impedance set on the receiver via Advanced Setup menu (see manual)? Check if it is not short-circuited.
Try the receiver without speakers connected. If the message goes away, receiver is OK and problem is in the connection to the speakers.

A/V reciever + Computer


Greetings tad1073,

Its more then possible to connect your sound card to your receiver, the question would be what connections are available.

Looking at your receiver's owners manual it does appear that you should have 3 digital inputs (2 optical, and 1 coaxial), so if your sound card has digital outputs it maybe best to use these. If your sound card does not, you should be able to invest in a "Y" audio cable that would go from a basic mini plug connection to a dual rca connector. You could then connect the cable to a line out (sugjested) or speaker out and then connect the rca side to a separate source (dvd, Dtv/Cbl, Dvr, CD, MD/Cd-R)

On a side note you might want to make sure some of your system sounds are deactivated unless you want to hear beeps, and bells while your using your receiver.

Enjoy.
Jon

Turntable connection


Yes, you'll need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP, and then connect the turntable to the pre-amp, and the pre-amp to the LINE INPUT of your receiver.
