Question about Yamaha Digital Sound Projector Home Theater Speaker System

Open Question

TV sound not coming through receiver, no DVD picture

We just hooked up a Yamaha HTR-6130 speaker system.  We used HTMI cables to hookup the TV, the DVD player and a computer to the receiver.
All five speakers and the subwoofer work.  The FM input comes out on all 5 speakers.
The TV picture is coming in, but the sound is coming through the TV speakers, not through the 5 speakers hooked up to the receiver.  
The sound from the DVD player is coming in through the 5 speakers, but the corresponding picture is the wallpaper from my computer (although I can't get the audio or any other pictures from the computer to run the 5 speakers or to show up on the TV). 
How do I get all the sound to run through the receiver and how to I match up the right audio and video inputs?

SOURCE: XBox 360 to Reciever to TV via HDMI no sound

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:

Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.

You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!

This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

SOURCE: No sound unless VIDEO signal is plugged into receiver

Connect the DVD player audio with digital coax into the digital audio connection as you described and the DVD video directly to the TV. Now switch the input mode on the receiver to DVD. Then switch the video output mode on the TV to correspond to the input you plugged into. Any source in 5.1 dolby digital or dts should now work properly and have picture too.

SOURCE: Yamaha HTR-6230 receiver set up w/HDMI no sound

BD and DVR hooked up to the receiver and from the receiver to the TV right? If yes: Your receiver set to pass sound trough to the TV, if you want sound from the home theater setting has to be changed.

No picture with Yamaha 6130 reciever. have


The TV must be tuned to the correct input also. Please cycle through the tv inputs by pressing the input button on the tv one time, then wait 5 to 10 seconds for the tv to recognize the input signal. If nothing, press again. You don't say which tv you have but many newer models have 5 to 7 input sources you will have to cycle through to find your signal.

With out more information, this is just one step in finding out what could be wrong. Please rank me accordingly.

Good luck.

How to hook up a xbox 360 console to my yamaha 6130 receiver


You will need an additional HDMI cord...you can get them without getting ripped off by purchasing at bluejeanscable.com.

Connect your HDMI out from the xbox to the receiver. Connect the additional HDMI cable to the "out" HDMI connection on the receiver and connect the other end of it to your TV.

WE PURCHASED A YAHAMAHA HTR-6130 TODAY


You may need to set up the receiver for your speaker configuration. There should be a setup menu on the receiver, and that will allow you to tell the amp what speakers you are using, and what inputs you are connecting what devices to. You may also need to set your DVD player, cable box and TV for the audio stream you want to use. PCM or Bitstream to be more precise. Also make sure that the sound output is set to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Digital and the input signal is in stereo or surround.

Best Wishes.

Getting Audio to work with our Cable Tv


The HTR-6130 does not decode the audio from the HDMI inputs. It only acts as a switcher. You will need a separate audio connection from the cable box to the HTR-6130.

Yamaha HTR-6130 Front right and left speakers with no sound


As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.
