Re: Component Video

Make sure that your source units (DVD, Cable/Satellite, etc) are ALSO plugged into the reciever using Component (you cant have multiple types like S-Video, Composite and Component mixed and matched). Also make sure your TV is on the appropriate input.

I have just brought a rx-v367 av reciever and have connected it to my tv/ speakers. speakers work fine when testing set up. however there is no sound coming out when connected to tv. also it keeps coming...

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.


Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable

Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.

Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.

Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.

Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.

Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.

Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

My wii won't play video through my Yamaha RX-V465. The audio comes through OK. I have a normal signal video component cable and i have connected the receiver to the TV with a HDMI cable. i have tried...

This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.

From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.

So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.

Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.

My color TV has turned black and white however my DVD that is plugged into the receiver plays in color. What's going on?

When one asks questions involving two components it is always necessary to know the identity of both. "Color TV" is kind of generic.

Please define the TV and which direct video input on IT produces B/W and exactly how it is connected and from what specific source unit. Then try swapping something that works, say, the DVD, into the "B/W" input to see if that helps.

If you're using component video cables you could have one loose or defective.

How do I convert from HDMI-in to Component-Out? Basically, I'd like to have my cable box (Comcast DVR) coming into the receiver using HDMI but would like to output to my TV using Component instead of HDMI....

looking at the manual here that should work for Video
it looks like on the receiver you would have the DVR connected via HDMI cable to the receiver On the receiver you would select this HDMI as the input. That should automatically allow that signal to be presented to the component out on the receiver you connect the cables from component out to the TV and switch the TV to select the component input -depending on the TV model this may be labeled AV1,2,3,4, etc No sound will be transferred to the TV as component is Image ONLY whats the make and model of the TV

No component video output

Hope this helps

The Yamaha HTR-6030 offers two types of video monitor output: Component and Composite. You may need to connect both types to your television as the HTR-6030 does not have composite to component video conversion. In other words, to view your VCR on your TV, you need to use the composite video monitor connection. However, for a DVD player or other source that has component video connections, use the component video monitor output to your TV. If your TV has both types, you simply switch between the two with your TV remote to access the proper video monitor output signal from the HTR-6030.

Video distortion

Only thing I can suggest would be:
A. Look for any magnetic or other interference on any of the cables if there are bare wires somewhere.

B. Get a separate video switcher or run all your video to TV. If you are using component, the signal is a low quality anyways, but the same can happen to any type of connection
