Yamaha RX-V661 - no audio since I hooked up digital converter box

I've just added a Tivax STB-T8 digital to analog converter to my setup. I no longer get audio through my Yamaha RX -V661 receiver, it is only coming through the SonyTV now.

Right now the audio out goes from the Tivax to the VCR ports on the receiver.
Audio out on the TV goes to DVR out on the receiver.
Audio in on the TV goes to VCR out on the receiver.

Immediately you have the problem of TV audio out to DVR audio out. Inputs go to outputs and outputs go to inputs - always.
I think what you may want to do is daisy chain all your audio (e.g. audio output of Tivax to audio input of VCR. Audio output of VCR to audio input of DVR. Audio output of DVR to an audio input of the Yamaha) In order to get the audio from any given device to the reciever, you may have to power up all of components.) Of course in order to record on the VCR and DVR you would attach the antenna to the RF input on the Tivax , RF output to the RF input of the VCR, RF output of the VCR to the RF input of the DVR and finally the RF output of the DVR to the antenna input of the TV. I don't know whether there would be any losses in such an elaborate hookup such that the RF signal would not be strong enough to get stations but you can experiment by just taking links out of this daisy chain. Hope this helps.

Tivax STB-T9 DTV converter - remote control audio buttons no longer controlling TV audio


Maybe the remote got dropped by the cleaners. If you could control volume with the remote previously and now can't, I suspect the remote needs to be replaced.

I need to reset my Tivax STB-T8 and need the code for the remote. Unfortunately, the manaul, box and code info is gone. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.


If you wish to get more details, check this site. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup proceedings to many popular brand remote controls are given. Three digit, Four digit, Five digit and two digit code list are there. Check the site with patience. Surely you'll get a solution to your problem. Search the site by 'Timeslide' option. It will make search easy. Or, type in the brand name to your device into its search box, and press "Enter."

How do I hook up an ADC SS-100SL Equalizer to a Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver?


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.

Okay, back to the hook-up: Receiver MD/CDR Out to the SS2 EQ Preamp- or Amp-In; Receiver MD/CDR In from the SS2 EQ Preamp- or Amp-Out.

So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer's own Tape Monitor loop(s). Many have two to facilitate equalized dubbing between decks.

[Or you could obtain a dbx Program Route Selector (check eBay, I highly recommend the 400x, of which I have two) and it would, while only using one receiver Tape Loop, allow for three discrete attachment paths for processors and three for tape decks with the added flexibility of front-panel selection of any and all, with the processors being before, after or between the source or tape decks. Plus it has a dedicated facility for an inline dbx Noise Reduction Processor that can also be juggled around via pushbuttons. Pretty neat.]

Trying to control Zenith DTT900 box with Yamaha RX-V463 remote


Since Insignia and LG share compatible codes for digital-to-analog converters, review your remote control's manual for LG VCR codes as they should work to control the Insignia converter.

Analog to Digital TV Converter-Which Brand is BEST for the Money?


my first question is how many channels can you receive now, that are clear with no snow, without a dtv box hooked up. if any channels have snowy pictures now when tuned in at best reception, you more than likely will not pick then up with the dtv box. the only option in my opinion that some may prefer from one model to another would be the program guide on some units only show whats on now and next, whereas some units may have a 5 to 7 day program guide. there is one unit out that has a noticeable hum on the audio if turned to a high volume. Im not familiar with the dtt901, but from what you have looked at so far, you shouldnt go wrong with purchasing any one of them. If you can only get 1 or 2 channels now, i wouldnt invest a fortune in a dtv box, unless its your only means of viewing television, and watch alot of tv.
