Re: Optical Dtv sound
Hi, I have located a manual for you, and if you go to Page 41 of the user manual there are instructions on how to select the audio source type - ie your optics from cable box. The best setting is to select AUTO, or manually set for your optical connection. This should solve your lack of audio, if you have any dramas, get back to me here. Good luck

Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?
For TV audio thru the receiver, you will need to run an optical cable or RCA analog audio cable from the "Audio Output" or "Monitor Output" on the back of the TV to the CBL/Sat input on the Yamaha. The VCR goes to Video 1 on the receiver and the DVDR will go to DVR/VCR2 on the receiver. If you want to pass Video thru the Yamaha to the TV, use the "Monitor Output" on the Yamaha if it's at least "Component Video" if not, connect your video sources directly to the TV and audio to the Yamaha. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance with this, post a comment and I will help you further.
If your using HDMI. The HDMI technology in version 1.1 & 1.2 was riddled with problems. Check your owners manual for version.Or, try the Coaxial Digital or optical output from your sat receiver to your Yamaha receiver, go into "GUI" "Menu" not sure which on the HTR series and Lock the audio input to Coaxial or Optical on CBL/SAT. Then Test. If it still has issues, check the settings for Audio on the SAT receiver and make sure they are correct. If you still have a problem, use a standard RCA from the sat receiver to the Yamaha. At this point audio should be rock solid on analog. Look on the back of your DSS receiver for the model # & write it down. Then go into the units menu "SAT" and check it's firmware version for version and date. It may need an update. Go to your Sat's website, Directv or Dishnetwork and go to support, enter model # and look for any updates that may apply. Hope this helps
be more specific!...how is the tv hooked up? hdmi, component, straight to the tv, or into the amp then tv?....what audio out? optical, digital? also what are you trying to view? local programming? cable/sat? dvd? your best bet is to ignore video on the amp and go straight to tv. can't help u more until i have more specifics.
this sounds strange, but is true. you need to run your digital audio optical cable from your tv to your receiver (after, of course, connecting tv/receiver via hdmi). so, hdmi from blue ray to rec - hdmi from rec to tv - then optical from tv back to rec. it's round about, but that is how yamaha says (and the only way it works) to do it.
When you connect the optical cable to the ps3 you must change the output to optical on the ps3. To do this, startup your ps3 then go to settings then audio output settings and change it to Digital Out (Optical).
To get audio connect a set of phono cables or digital cable if cable box has it to (phonos) the sat input or (digital) to the optical or coax input.You didnt say which yamaha amp you have so if you do not get sound you may have to assign the inputs in the set up menu.
hope this helps
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.
