Question about Yamaha HTR-6130 Receiver
I followed the instructions in setting up the receiver and speakers, It works great for my cable box and tv however when I use the DVD player there is sound but no picture. I originally had it connected throught the red, white, and yellow cables and then switched to HDMI input. Both had sound, no picture. I am wondering if it has something to do that I have cable plugged into component, do you have to have all inputs in the same inputs?
Secondly, the speakers work during the test phase, but I can't figure out how to get them all to play. I have pressed the a/b button and changed from straight to entertainment and it still only shows the LR on the screen not all 5 speakers. Any suggestions?
The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.
