Yamaha HTR-5640 Component Video Problems

The DVD and D-TV/CBL Component Video inputs on my Yamaha HTR-5640 just starting having issues. The DVD input now only displays when D-TV/CBL is selected, and the D-TV/CBL does not display (when on either DVD and D-TV/CBL). The audio is working fine, it just appears to be a problem with the DVD, D-TV/CBL and Monitor Out component video ports.

    Solved the problem. Somehow without my knowledge the input mapping was changed so it acted like I described above. Everything is working fine now.

SOURCE: the HDMI "input" ports damage output ports of connecting devices

i know this sounds stupid, but have you "toggled" or "played" with the HDMI cables? are they the same manufacturer? HDMI channel connections are very fickle. If just one connection is not exactly correct, they go to a limp, no go status. Since they run at such a minimal voltage, i can't see them "blowing" the outputs on the devices.however....if your cable has a serial type output for video only, I would connect the hdmi convertor to it and see if it works.

You need to connect a composite cable from the receiver. The receiver does not carry a composite signal over component cables.

SOURCE: 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.

I have no TV box but do have cable, how do I hook up TV,VCR,DVD, and YAMAHA HTR 6030


For watching TV, your TV should have a monitor out. This will go to your CBL/Sat input on the receiver. If you have a newer TV, it will have an optical output,if you use that, you will have Dolby Digital surround when available, and digital stereo at all other times. For the VCR and DVD, if they are separate units, Run audio video from the VCR to the receiver to VCR 1, for the DVD, use Component video and optical or digital coaxial to the receiver. Then from the receiver run component video to the TV. If you need further help, post a comment and I will help you further. Hope this helps

I have a yamaha receiver with HDMI outputs for direct tv, and a DVD player. How do I hook up the direct tv, HD DVD, and yamaha receiver? Where do the inputs go?


Does the Yamaha have HDMI inputs? Usually you would connect the directv and dvd player via individual HDMI cables to the Yamaha (input)and then the Yamaha (output) to your TV also via HDMI.

Yamaha HTR-5750 no sound when I turn to the DTV/Cable setting


If you are not getting sound on "Any" input except "multi channel" you have a bad DSP chip in the receiver.In short, you need a new receiver, it's a 500.00 repair. If you get sound on "All" inputs except "DTV/CBL" You need to get into the main menu of the Yamaha and select audio, toggle to input, then DTV/CBL and select "Auto". If you still do not get audio, it would be due to the version of HDMI software in your receiver. If it's under warranty, Yamaha will update hardware and software for you at N/C. If it's out of warranty, use digital coaxial or optical as your audio input for TV and run your HDMI directly to the TV. (The repair for this too would run 250-350) I hope I've covered all the possibilities. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more.

Yamaha HTR 5830 sound and no pic? I get sound in both DVD and TV?CBL modes but no picture.


make sure that the yellow video jack is on the tv out on the surround unit and is plugged into the video jack on the tv. You may have to change the input on your tv to Video1 or Video2 to get the pic to come in

Denon AVR-488 , problems routing cable box through receiver to tv


If you don't have one, the manual is available online: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/AVR-488-OM-E_101.pdf

Suggestions:

1. Reset to default values. Per page 36 of manual: 1. Turn off Power. 2. Press Power while simultaneously pressing Speaker A and Speaker B. 3. Once the display starts flashing at intervals of about 1 second, release the two buttons.

2. Make sure you have AM or FM radio reception. This makes sure your speakers, amps, etc are connected and working correctly.

3. Connect DVD player to HDMI 1 in and TV to HDMI Monitor Out.
Play a known good DVD that works when you connected the DVD directly to the TV via HDMI.

Select the DVD/HDP input on the receiver and play the DVD. You should not have to perform any input assignments, etc. It should just work, as HDMI1 is the default system setting for DVD.

4. If possible, obtain a STB with HDMI out & repeat step 3 using the HDMI2 TV/CBL input. Keeping the signal path all digital (HDMI) will give you a better picture quality than forcing several analog to digital conversions (component video is analog).

4A. To use the component connection, first test by connecting the STB directly to the TV via component video/audio if possible. This tests that the component video output of the STB is working correctly.

Next, remove direct connection and connect via receiver. Connect STB to receiver as shown on page 13 in manual. Connect component video output from STB to component video input #2 (tv/cbl) on receiver. Connect the STB audio output to the corresponding tv/cbl audio inputs.

Make sure nothing is connected to the HDMI2 input or to any other TV/CBL inputs (composite video, s-video, digital coax audio).

Now select the TV/CBL input and turn on the STB. You should have both audio & video.
