Thats because if you look in the owner's manual, it declares the fact that it will only broadcast sound from hdmi to monitor not speakers. For sound out of speakers need to connect additional audio cable.

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.

SOURCE: Audio but no video from Sony Blu-Ray w/ HDMI hookup to RX-V663

Okay...my 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!

Unfortunately the RX-V463's HDMI output is version 1.2 or 1.1. In simple terms, It is useless! Not to blame yamaha or any other manufacturer but the firmware was riddled with problems; just like what you describe. There is no fix for your model for the video issue, however, the optical issue is solveable. The receiver should play 5.1- 6.1 7channel stereo etc. in optical or coaxial mode. If you have the ability to switch to coaxial, do so. it's sound is warmer anyway. Secondly, check your settings thru the receivers "GUI" or "Menu" in Manual setup for audio. Thirdly, check your samsungs "Native" resolution, chances are it will only do 720p or 1080i and; if your TV is 50" or smaller, the human eye cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080p anyway, provided you use good cables. I am a professional in the industry and still avoid using HDMI whenever possible!
Just make sure you set your BluRay and TV to the same resolution. If your choices are 720p or 1080i use 720p it's cleaner 1080i is equal to 540p, which is just a hair over std DVD video. If you still have problems and need more help, post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps

Do not use HDMI thru your receiver. Go directly from the Cable box to the TV. Connect coaxial digital or optical to your receiver. Your receiver uses HDMI version 1.1 or 1.2, which is riddled with issues. If you want to read about them, Google HDMI Problems and you can read for hours. Long of the short of it is; Don't pass HDMI thru your receiver, use the receiver for audio only. Hope this answers the question. Sorry for the bad news! I'm in the industry and have been dealing with these issues for a couple years now.

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.

The Yamaha RX-V463 AV does not playsound from the blue ray player


"I am also having difficulties in try to display the yamaha set up menu on the tv."
According to the manual the display menu for TV will not work with HDMI hook up.
I also have a Panasonic HD TV and can't get TV sound through my Yamaha AVR on "TV Sound" mode.  Trying to use HDMI cable for this also.  Do I need a digital optical cable or do I not have something set right?

Multiple connections to Yamaha V463


Each HDMI port has its own source, such as DVD, Radio, etc. When you switch sources on the receiver, it sends the appropriate signal to the television. If I'm not mistaken, the 463 is only a pass through unit not a converting one so it you hooked up your DVD player through the S Video or Component it may not send the signal to your television through the HDMI, since it takes a converter to change the source from Analog to Digital. May be wrong on the unit though.

Component is better than S-Video. Also, use a fiber optic cable for sound from your DVD player if it has one. This setup will be the closest to HDMI, some argue better.

Want to add all of my video components to my rxv 663 reciever


The rx-v663 has 2 hdmi inputs, and 1 HDMI Outputs, The way I would run is 1 HDMI in dedicated to the Blu-ray, This will do the audio HD True digital, DTS-HD , then video out to the TV for HD 1080p resolution, On the cable box out do you have an HDMI 1.3? If so sport it to the other available receiver HDMI IN, net the same in/out as the blue ray, minus a 1080p result video which will only happen Blu-ray, cable will result 1080i HD and audio HD will vary with the signal broadcast format.
