I can't get picture or sound from my digital cable box plugged into my RX V661 receiver via HDMI. All of the ports, cables and components work. My PS3 works just fine while plugged into the receiver via HDMI DVD port but when I plug in my digital cable HD DVR box no picture or sound is omitted. Please help!!

The picture on my TV flickers on and off when I use my DVD player. The problem remains even when I switch to another DVD player. I think the problem may be the HDMI cable on my Yamaha rx-v661. Please...


You cannot run HDMI from any source thru the Yamaha to the TV. The V661 is 1st generation HDMI headache. Version 1.1 which basically is useless. Don't blame Yamaha, it's not their fault, it's HDMI. All manufacturer's receivers prior to 09' series use either 1.1, 1.2, or 1.2a. and they all have issues. So, here's the skinny, run your audio to your receiver via optical or digital coaxial. Then run video directly to the TV via HDMI if you wish. The problem arises when you have more sources than inputs on your TV. Depending on the size of your TV can make a big difference in how you wire it. If your TV is 50" or smaller, just use component, the human eye cannot differentiate between 720p and 1080p and that's a fact. second fact, most TV shows are broadcast in a native resolution of 720p, the only real 1080p programming is on HDNET, Discovery,National Geographic and The NFL.
What I mean by that is the camera used to take the actual picture is a 1080p camera. Major money! so, that being said, if your tv is larger than 50", and it's 1080p not 1080i yes, you can see a difference. If you post a comment and list all your product, I can give you the best possible way to put it all together. I feel your pain and aggrivation! I am a Yamaha, Marantz, Proceed, and Adcom Dealer. I get it from all sides! If there's anyway I can make it easier for you, I will. Hope this helps

Connect to your HDMI out from the receiver to your television.

No auto setup display on TV


For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.

Setting up Cable with HDMI


Yes, the firmware on your hdtv box has an old firmware, I switched my old hdtv box with a newer one box and the problem was solved. It seems that it can't work if your hooking up with DVI to HDMI cable to your receiver to tv. Your hd box must have an HDMI out otherwise it causes problems. I also have rx-v661 and i finally hooked up everything HDMI to the receiver and then to the tv and it was having the problem you speak of. After I switched out the hd box for a newer one everthing worked fine.
