Question about Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi

Open Question

Sony blu ray player doesn't work with Yamaha receiver

I have a Yamaha rx-v2600 a/v receiver and today unplugged my old Sony blu-ray GDP-s570 and plugged in the new Sony bdp-s5100. The new player powers on fine but nothing gets thru the receiver. I only wanted the new BD player for the 2.4Ghz wifi, not sure it's worth buying a new receiver. The BD player works when connected directly to the tv, and the older BD player had no problems. Any ideas why the new player would not work with the receiver when the older one worked fine (except the slow wifi!)? Thanks!

    Hi Brenda Cross, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Are you using HDMI cables?

    Jon - I am using HDMI cables through the system. When at first the new BD player didn't work, I replaced the cable from the BD player to the receiver with one marked "high speed", just in case. I also "re-booted" the power to the whole system (surge protector), just in case. I checked the other 2 HDMI cable connections, one from the tV to the receiver and the other from the receiver to the cable box. These cables are also marked "high speed" HDMI cables. Finally, I plugged the old BD player back in to see if it still worked with the new cable and the old BD player worked fine. Thanks again for any ideas!

    It was an HDMi compatibility prob, I plugged the HDMI cable directly to the tv for video, and used the digital coax out to the receiver and it works fine.

Your receiver is the Denon AVR 2105 and not the Sony STR-DG510 5.1 Channels Receiver?

SOURCE: No Audio

What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.

SOURCE: problems using HDMI

I've had a problem with the HDMI connector, had it replaced twice while my VPL-HS60 was under warranty. This connector seems very fragile, the first time I was not getting any signal from HDMI, so the repair shop ordered a new connector and replaced it, a couple of days after the it was not working again and found that they had to solder it back on the board. If you're not getting a signal from HDMI anymore that could be your problem.

Yamaha RX-V471 3D video for blu ray will not display on TV

Your Yamaha is the problem here. It cannot handle the signal and process the 3D as it states. What I would do is hook your player direct to your TV in the manner that it works and feed your audio from a different path to maintain surround system. Your tv/dvd player may have an audio out that you can feed back to the Yamaha .

Yamaha RX-V2600 completely dead ... any ideas

If it is plugged in to a working outlet, and the AC cord is not broken, there is a problem in the power supply of the receiver. This provides all of the DC voltages that make all functions work. If it is completely dead, the display, the lights, the audio, (everything) is not working; and it is not likely there are separate problems in all of these areas at the same time.

I would like to hook up my components without having to turn on the receiver to watch tv from DVR or Cable if possible. I have Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 HD Cable DVR w/HDMI out, Samsung TV w/HDMI ,...

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

Since hooking up my dvd player(blu-ray)with hdmi, my video completly drops off after the receiver has been powered up for about 3 mintutes. This is not a problem when using component input and output- only...

The RX-V2600 is first generation HDMI and the firmware is HDMI 1.1a or b It will not pass video via HDMI. It's not a Yamaha problem, it was an HDMI problem. Every receiver with 1.1 or 1.2 firmware has issues. The newest version is 1.3b and so far so good. I'm a home integrator and still am leary of HDMI for that very reason! expensive cables too! if you are viewing on a TV 50" or smaller, the human eye cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080p. if your TV is bigger, run the HDMI directly to the TV and run Digital Coaxial or Optical audio to your receiver. That is the only solution. Hope this helps

Audio but no video from Sony Blu-Ray w/ HDMI hookup to RX-V663 first contribution to any forum but I have the same problem (Yamaha RX-V663 and Samsung Blu Ray) and found the solution. The problem is you probably have your HDMI cables from your DVD player and reciever connected to a DVI input on your TV. The DVI may have problems communicating--not HDCP compliant. My system was working great then I hit a button on my remote...just playing around. I think it was the pure audio and I turned off the receiver. After that, the audio worked but there was no video. After many frustrating hours, the fix was to unplug the HDMI and DVI cable then turn the power off, cycle the power again, and plug the HDMI and DVI cables back in (the DVI was the last cable plugged in, not sure if that matters). By unplugging everthing you've reset the communication between the HDMI components and the DVI TV.

See page 18 of the yamaha owners manual, second to last note on bottom right of the page. It says there may be a problem...

I also noticed that the yamaha reciever was sending 1080p (my older tv is 1080I) and that is why the video wouldn't display on the TV. You can see this in the video signal info screen, unfortunately there is no setting to switch it back, just recycle the cables and power and it should reset.

Uncredibly frustrating but I got my picture back!
