Question about Yamaha RX-V563 Receiver
I just purchased my Yamaha RX-V563 7.1 receiver and have had issues since day one. We purchased this product along with a Polk Audio speaker set 8 ohms. My system has my Blue-Ray player connected directly to the receiver via HDMI cable, then from there it is connected to my Sony TV via HDMI cable as well. When watching Madagascar BlueRay the sound starts to cut out about 1/2 hour to 40 minutes into the movie. The receiver has plenty of clearance above and around reciever. So I double check my cables, they are brand new Monster Speaker Cables, and made sure the ends were in tight, and that I had the polarity correct on all speakers. Here is the mysterious part though. Once it started to do that we shut off the reciever immediately. After double checking everything, making sure all connections were good, we tried the same movie again a few days later, same problem. So we shut receiver off. A few hours later we Decided to watch Pirates of the Carribean 3, before playing movie I decided to look in the menu for the sound optioins, this time I decided to select 5.1 surround UNCOMPRESSED. We watched the entire movie with no problems, but strangly it seemed like the receiver was just as hot as before. Then the next day we decided to watch a regular DVD and see if that would do the same thing as hour Madagascar movie was doing, and it did. It seems to do it when running in DOLBY DIGITAL. I need some answers, I really like this receiver but if it can't run in DOLBY DIGITAL without cutting out it is worthless to me. Most my DVDs are Dolby DIgital. PLEASE HELP!!!!
Your problem is related to HDMI technology not the Receiver. HDMI in it's current version 1.3b has worked out 90% of the current problems being reported by HDMI users. it's a problem with HDCP digital copyright protection and the recording industry not wanting us "consumers" to duplicate or record their DVD's. Your receiver and every other receiver with version 1.1,-1.2, & 1.2a just don't cooperate with BluRay and even HD Cable or HD Sat receivers. If you just purchased this receiver recently, return it and get an 09' model or equivalent with 1.3a or 1.3b HDMI technology. If this unit is "un-returnable" then, what needs to happen is you need to run component video and digital audio to the receiver OR Run your HDMI directly to your TV and run a Digital Coaxial to your DVD audio input on the receiver. Depending on how many sources you are running to the TV via HDMI will be limited to the TV's capability (how many HDMI inputs)
Now, if your TV is 50" or smaller, the difference between running HDMI and Component is unmeasurable to the human eye. So, if you have to run component, don't sweat it! just use good cable, ie. Monster, Phoenix, Translucent etc. I do theese installs every day, and I still prefer Component or DVI if available over HDMI. They just haven't proved the reliability to me yet and we're three years in! Hope this helps

BS Component VS HDMI is measurable by the human eye. I can tell you exactly how your HD signal is connected. Component gives uneven black images.

I have had the same problem and it seems related to Sony sources. LG and Samsung sources did not have any issues
