SOURCE: Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

SOURCE: Yamaha HTR-6130 Front right and left speakers with no sound

As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

this sounds strange, but is true. you need to run your digital audio optical cable from your tv to your receiver (after, of course, connecting tv/receiver via hdmi). so, hdmi from blue ray to rec - hdmi from rec to tv - then optical from tv back to rec. it's round about, but that is how yamaha says (and the only way it works) to do it.

SOURCE: TV blanks out..."pcm" light flashes on receiver

You need to Bypass the Receivers HDMI port and use HDMI directly to the TV. Your receiver has HDMI version 1.2a and is not 100% effective. Use the optical out from your Xbox to the receiver and all will be well. 1.2a has issues in every receiver on the market. Supposedly 1.3b on the "new" receivers has fixed this issue. Hope this helps

I have a yamaha home theater and the front screen says decoder off what does that mean?


The Yamaha is not getting a PCM (digital surround sound) audio stream. This happens when I turn off the cable box. It also happens when I plug the HDMI output to a projector or monitor that is not HDCP compliant. I can't use an HDMI to DVI adapter.

No compressed audio on hdmi If I send compressed Dolby Digital to the HTR-5990 via HDMI, the indicator shows "PCM" and no audio is heard.


You probably need to take that issue up with the setup of the unnamed device originating the signal.

Yamaha htr6180 with Motorola HD Cable Box Causes Picture to Blink


Can't be done. Your version of HDMI firmware and hardware in your receiver have "handshake" and "HDCP" incompatability issues that are too costly to fix. Your receiver has version 1.1 HDMI and the current version is 1.3b and soon to be 1.4. HDMI is not to blame though; it's RIAA, the recording industry that keeps changing audio and video codecs to protect against "copyright infringement" It's a ROYAL LOAD of !@#$%^&*. I am in the industry and have been avoiding HDMI at all cost! Too many issues! even with current BLURAY players they are using RJ45's on the back to allow software updates to keep in line with all the new codecs. If you want more info on HDMI and it's many issues; google "HDMI problems" and you can read forever!. Sorry for the bad news, but it is the fact. Hope this at least helps in understanding that there is nothing wrong with your product! it's the recording industry!

XBox 360 to Reciever to TV via HDMI no sound


I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:

Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.

You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!

This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

PS3 connection to Yamaha HTR-6130 Av Receiver


URNOTME is right. HDMI is great and all, but wish i would have spent a few more dollars on a unit that supports switching. htr-6130 does pass-through, so you have to use seperate audio connections. really there is no use running HDMI into the receiver and then into the receiver and THEN to the tv. just go straight to the tv, then run your audio either optical (best) or coaxial.

No sound coming out of back speakers when watching DVDs


Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.

Hope this helps.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
