Question about Yamaha RX-V563 Receiver

3 Answers

Yamaha Receiver sound cuts out with Dolby Digital.

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.

Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei


The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

It sounds a lot like a flaky digital bitstream. What source(s) do that? Of those, which would be affected by weather? I'm assuming the receiver is indoors.

Check the settings in the Motorola to make sure it's outputting Dolby Digital instead of PCM stereo.

Indicators on the receiver can tell you if you're receiving mutlichannel audio or not.

Rx 2700 dts keeps flickering on and off causing


Your symptom sounds like a poor digital connection. The receiver is probably configured to prefer the digital feed if both digital and analog are present from a given source. That it blinks the 'analog' indicator means it thinks the digital signal is degraded.

I believe you're using HDMI. If your cable box has either optical or coaxial digital outputs, try one or both and proceed from there. You could also certify the health of the receiver input that's failing by connecting another device (your Blu-Ray?) to it to test it out, or simply borrow its cable.

If the input works with another device THAT would indicate a problem upstream and external from the receiver - cable, output of the cable box. Optical cables are more finicky than coaxial and do not tolerate being routed in tight radious bends.

DTS isn't Dolby. Read up on it here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DTS_(sound_system)

Your PS3 probably has a setting for what digital bitstream it produces. Check it out. Dolby Digital is probably what you want.

My Yamaha receiver model rx-v565 audio is putting out choppy sounds when cable is playing. I am using all HDMI connections. My TV is an LG 240 Hertz model and using the comcast HDMI box.


Do not run HDMI to your receiver. Run Digital Coaxial or Optical from cable box to your 565. The problem is on many levels. Hardware, Software, Audio Codecs, etc. your receiver is HDMI version 1.1. The current version is 1.3b. You can thank the recording industry for copyright protection for this issue. To have your receiver updated would be Very expensive and not worth it. If you want a blow by blow explanation of all HDMI's issues, Google HDMI forums or problems, and you can read for hours. Hope this helps.

Right now my reciever will only play with two speakers (L and R). How do I get the 5.1 DTS back?


Are you using single digital coaxial or optical digital or the stereo RCA cable.
You might have that buttons on the remote for surround,2channel,3channel or 5.1 channel. orGo to the DVD's setup menu and click on "Audio Setup" or on "Languages" if there is no Audio Setup option and choose "Dolby Digital 5.1." (If you have a5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 system select "Dolby Digital EX" if it is an available option.) Depending on the age of the disc, the "Audio Setup" on the DVD menu may give you several choices: "5.1 Channel Surround Sound" or "Stereo Playback." If it's an old DVD, it might even say Dolby AC-3 (the professional designation for Dolby Digital 5.1). New DVDs may offer "Dolby Digital 5.1" and "Dolby Digital 2.0," the latter being stereo. Some of the disc menus offer only "Surround Sound" or "Stereo" options.
