Question about Yamaha RX-V673 7.2 Channel AV Receiver BONUS PAK w/ Two HDMI Cables

1 Answer

My Blu-Ray DVD player is connected to the AV Receiver with HDMI cable.

A friend advised me to connect the Blu-Ray DVD player to theAV receiver with an additional optical cable to further improved the audio. Is this true? Isn't it that an HDMI cable is sufficient for both Video & Audio connection?

You're not going to get any difference using an optical cable. In fact, your receiver cannot look at both jacks at once anyway. If you select an input, it only looks at one jack, it cannot take info from both.

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!

How do i set up dvd player


The newer players have an HDMI port on the back. If your AV receiver or television has an HDMI port, connect the player to the AV receiver or television using an HDMI cable, often sold separately. If it's conencted to your television, select the menu option on your television and under "source", choose the HDMI input. Turn on the player and you should see the DVD player logo if all is working properly.

Sony DVP-NS77H No outout


I had the same problem unitl I read the manual a little more carefully.

I found that ALL connections through my AV receiver had to be identical. I was using component connections with analog connections.

Since I switched to all HDMI connections (cable box to AV receiver, DVD to AV receiver and AV receiver to TV) all is fine.

Hope this helps.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.

No Audio


What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.
