Connect tv to surround sound system


Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)

If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.

Josh, define the 'backfeeding' of the digital audio from the two HD components into Video 1. Those are ANALOG inputs on the VR405. You have two coaxial- and one optical-digital audio input you could/should be using.

I'm surprised you're getting ANY audio (much less digital audio) from the BD and Cable Boxes unless you also have an analog audio path coming in from (what?) the TV.

Rx 2700 dts keeps flickering on and off causing


Your symptom sounds like a poor digital connection. The receiver is probably configured to prefer the digital feed if both digital and analog are present from a given source. That it blinks the 'analog' indicator means it thinks the digital signal is degraded.

I believe you're using HDMI. If your cable box has either optical or coaxial digital outputs, try one or both and proceed from there. You could also certify the health of the receiver input that's failing by connecting another device (your Blu-Ray?) to it to test it out, or simply borrow its cable.

If the input works with another device THAT would indicate a problem upstream and external from the receiver - cable, output of the cable box. Optical cables are more finicky than coaxial and do not tolerate being routed in tight radious bends.

On the digital input 1 have the coaxial cable hooked up to blu-ray player but i have no sound, but if i hook up optical i do have sound.. wrong coaxial cable


Possibly a bad cable, but not likely its a 'wrong' one. Any RCA-style cable will do for SPDIF coaxial digital signals. Try another one. Are there other Digital Coaxial inputs you could try to prove the function?

You may have to configure your Digital Inputs so the receiver knows Digital Input 1 is Coaxial.

Stereo Set up


The physical TV is at best a lo-fi 2-channel analog audio device. Think about it this way: Most high-end users use video monitors (no audio or speakers on board). So where does the TV-related audio come from....

It comes from the same place the TV would get it - cable, satellite, dvd, blu-ray, vcr...

So why run audio from any of those sources to the TV and back to the receiver (whose specialty is
multi-channel sound)?

I imagine your cable or satellite box has Digital and Analog Audio Outputs. The receiver needs a digital input for anything multi-channel. Select the highest-quality one that's compatible with your HTR and use it for the audio feed.

You have one coaxial and one optical digital input. I imagine your (unnamed) DVD player has one or both types and your cable box has one or both types. If you have one of each type you're golden. Run each to its compatible input on the HTR.

If they're both optical, you have to make a choice, but if they're both coaxial only you could get away with using an RCA Y-cable to bring them both in to the one input. Then for each to work you would have to make sure the other device is turned off.

The video capabilities of this unit are limited to Composite (single RCA cable). Run one from the DVD and one from the cable box Video Out to the conveniently labeled inputs that match them.

I have no idea what your TV/Monitor has for inputs. If possible run the absolute highest quality video [HDMI, Component (3 RCA cables) or Composite (single RCA cable)] to the TV's inputs along with an RCA pair from DVD and Cable Ananlog Audio Out to the corresponding Audio In's on the TV. This way you can watch and hear TV from its own speakers without needing the Yamaha fired up.

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

Connecting Sony BDP S550 Blu-ray player to my Denon 3802 receiver.


The only thing you need is an optical audio cable (toslink) connecting the Blu-ray blayer with one of the three inputs on the AVR3802. Then assign this input in the system menu to the input you like (e. g. DVD) and that should be it. The Receiver automatically detects the sound format from the Blu-ray and changes from stereo to DTS, DD5.1, 7.1 or whatever.

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.
