I have AT&T Uverse in one of the HDMI connections. I am going to get a Blue Ray to connect to other HDMI input. Since there is only one HDMI output to the TV, how does the Reciever know to play the Blue instead of the Uverse? Does it detect the Blue Ray signal on?
Also, I would like to know in the mean time I have a regular DVD player, which connection would be better? S-Video or Component RCA plugs?
Each HDMI port has its own source, such as DVD, Radio, etc. When you switch sources on the receiver, it sends the appropriate signal to the television. If I'm not mistaken, the 463 is only a pass through unit not a converting one so it you hooked up your DVD player through the S Video or Component it may not send the signal to your television through the HDMI, since it takes a converter to change the source from Analog to Digital. May be wrong on the unit though.
Component is better than S-Video. Also, use a fiber optic cable for sound from your DVD player if it has one. This setup will be the closest to HDMI, some argue better.

There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input. You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.
Had to download the manual for this one since i didn't work with that particular model yet, but should be able to help anyway. Ok so on the back of the Yamaha unit you have a total of 5 HDMI plugs. The first on the left is the receiver's output which is supposed to go to the Pioneer flat screen in the Input HDMI plug. The 4 other HDMI plugs on the yamaha receiver are the 4 inputs, so plug in the Blue Ray reader into the second HDMI plug from the left which reads (BD/DVD) HDMI1. Now everything is plugged in the right way, so if you already did plug it all up like that, you were OK so far. All that is left now is to first of all put the Pioneer flat screen on the right input (You can do that with the remote of the TV, or if i'm not mistaken, there is an input selector on the back of your Pioneer flat screen TV). When that is done you just need to put the receiver to the right input also, to do so, either with the remote again, or on the front of the yamaha receiver unit. In both case, the button you need is the Input button, press it untill the receiver says HDMI 1 on the LCD display. And now you're done, all you need to do is to turn on the Blue Ray, put a movie in and enjoy.:) If it does not work, either the receiver or the flat screen are defective and should be returned for waranty.
"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?
I solve this problem by using an optical cable. The only OUT socket from the TV was this one so i connected the optical cable to the optical input in my amp and it's ok now. If your TV has another type of Out socket (HDMI OUT e.g) i think you can use it as well
