Question about Yamaha RX-V861 Receiver
I cannot get any sound out of the receiver when I'm in DTV/CBL mode. The lights on the right side of the view screen that represent the speakers are flashing along with the Digital light on the left side. I have the satallite receiver going into the receiver using a HDMI cable. I do have picture. If I switch modes to DVD for example I get sound so the speaker connections and the speakers are working. Also, the blinking stops.
Ok... I'm still new to the HDMI input. But I'm going to take a shot in the dark on this one.
Please don't rate me poorly for this, by the way. I'd rather you don't rate me at all as I am not proposing a solution.
This is a guess. I'll be honest about that. So here goes... :P
I read through the manual a bit. (Click HERE for the manual.) I started thinking to myself about your situation...and noticed that you seem to be focused primarily on the receiver itself.
What about the Satellite receiver? Have you checked it to see if you might have to manually switch the audio output to your HDMI output? I know you have video and all, but many devices won't assume that you're switching BOTH the video AND the audio outputs. Sometimes you have to manually switch one or the other, depending on how you're connected.
I would check the SAT receiver to see if you have to switch the audio output to go out from the HDMI output on the SAT receiver.
It has always been my experience that when the speaker icons flash on the audio receiver and you're sending a digital signal to it, the receiver is in fact NOT receiving a signal...
...which obviously means that one is not being sent to it.
Please let me know what you come up with. Again, this was just a shot in the dark. But I am curious either way. :)
Let me know!

Connect the audio outputs jacks from the TV to any available audio input terminals on the Yamaha receiver, other than the phono input. You can use any analog audio Left (White) and Right (Red) inputs on your receiver such as the DTV/CBL, SAT or VCR input. There are no special settings needed on the receiver, other than selecting the correct input. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on the TV. Consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output audio to an external source. If youre TV has a digital output (Optical or Coaxial) it can also be run to one of the digital inputs on the Yamaha receiver, such as DTV/CBL or DVD. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on your TV. As always, consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output digital audio to an external source.
NOTE: When the source of the audio signal is coming from an HDMI device connected to the TV, the TV may not output in 5.1 surround sound.
