I have the cable in the Digital Audio out on the TV and into the Digital Audio in on the receiver. I turned the speakers on the TV off. I turned the receiver to the DTV/CBL MODE. Problem is I am not getting any sound. FYI I have Bose Acoustimass 10 Series 111 speaker system hooked up to the receiver. Any ideas on how I can make this work?}

You've cabled it correctly. But on the TV there are settings for the Digital output, Off, PCM, and Dolby. Make sure you've set this correctly on the TV, and the Receiver.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

SOURCE: 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.

Should I be using a separate optical cable when connecting a Blu ray player with and HDMI ?


hi,
There is no need of connecting optical cable. the only thing you have to do is set the digital input assignment as HDMI (means setting the digital input source HDMI) in your av receiver. Also remember one thing, set the digital output setup of ur blue ray player also as HDMI. then only u will get audio through HDMI
if you need any more assistance fell free to contact me through fixya.

The audio comes from the source , and from the source you may need

to connect an audio cable that connects to the TV, only if your having

difficulty with each audio settings.

Connecting cable to receiver


Do you mean 5 RCA audio outputs marked as FrontLeft, FrontRight, RearLeft, RearRight, Center? Unfortunately this receiver doesn't have discrete 5ch inputs (as yamaha calls it on its webpage).
But the cable box should have also digital audio SPDIF output - that is either optical (square connector) or coax (RCA usually orange). You can use this for connecting to receiver.

Receiver just receives the audio data over optical digital cable and processes it. It is up to the DirectTV box what will send to receiver (if stereo or some Dolby Digital for example).
You can check the format (decoder, no. of channels, bitrate) of current audio signal after pressing Option button on remote and choosing Signal Info menu.

When connecting hdmi out from my panasonic blue-ray player to the dvd input in my yamaha rx-v365 there is not audio or video,why?


There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input.
You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.

No sound from cable via V665 receiver


Can't pass HDMI thru this or any other receiver with version 1.1,1.2,1.2a,or 1.2b. HDMI is riddled with issues! it's not Yamaha, it's HDMI. The current version 1.3b is working "so far" If your receiver is still under warranty, Yamaha will update the software and hardware at N/C. If it's out of warranty, Run HDMI directly from source to TV and Audio to your receiver via optical or digital coaxial. For more info than you can process, google "HDMI forums" and there are over 73,000 posts/sites/etc. If you need further info, post a comment and I will be glad to help.

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.

Yamaha RX V861 - Phillips DVD - No sound via digital coax


Does your TV support "Line In" or "Aux" or "External"? if so plug your "Low end" DVD directly into the back of the tv and verify that you Can get audio. Quite a few DVD players do have a mute feature. Be sure this is turned "off"...accordianman
