SOURCE: want to use Yamaha rx-797 reciever with bose 901

I don't know why the comment from Yamaha about Tape Monitor killing digital inputs is relevant.

According to the manal I downloaded, THIS stereo receiver doesn't have digital inputs.

As to using 901's and 301's...

You will need a separate Power Amp for either the 901's or the 301's. Sorry, but you can't share the amp with the Active-Equalized signal and non-901's.

I use 901's and 301's in MY 7.1 rig with a separate amp for the 901 and NOT using a Tape Monitor, but a preamp out feed for the front channels.

SOURCE: Hi. I write from spain. I have the blu-ray LG

Have you tried the another optical cable? They don't tolerate dirty connections or small-radius bends in their routing. THAT (and the expense of optical cables) is why I always choose coaxial connections when possible.

Read you manual, there is a page with a matrix of the audio in selectiosn that can be made for coaxial and optical on each input. Then you have to go into setting button on the right side of the unit and the "push set" knob to change the inputs for the digital audio.
My problem is, I had this all working and went to change the inputs around to add a optical DVD changer and now niether of my optical inputs are working any more. Analog is still fine.

I have a SA 8300HD cable box connected to Yamaha RX-V2500 receiver using Digital Audio Out from cable box to DVR/VCR2 on the receiver. It had been working for 2 years. Then this past weekend it stopped...


Pretty good problem description.

Make sure the DVR/VCR2 digital input is assigned to the Cable box.

When the DVR/VCR2 input is selected do you get any front panel indicators on the Yamaha that indicate a good digital bitstream?

Try swapping the cable box output to the working DVD In connection to isolate it to either the source or the receiver's ability to decode it.

Check the audio output settings for the Cable Box, too. Sometimes their outputs are adjustable. It may be muted or set too low.

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.

Input signals Marantz SR4003


There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

No audio on Denon AVR-588 from digital sources


If it is set to automatically detect connections then by default it will send signal to the one with the highest bandwidth, much like back in the day when you might have S video and composite connected simultaneously to the same input. So if you have your HDMI input assigned to DVD it will output that over optical or coaxial.

Switching digital inputs with a remote?


The default assignments for the digital INPUTs to Source names are:

OPT1= Video2
OPT2= CD.

If you have never changed them you should be able to select the PS3 by choosing Video2 and the 360 by choosing CD.

Or you could go into the setup routine on Page 33 of the manual and assign each digital input to a different 'function' that works better for you.

By the way, if you have the choice of coaxial vs optical cables on a given device the cheaper, longer and least sensitive-to-dirt-and-damage choice is coaxial - plain RCA cables. You can even extend them with Male-Female extender cables or split them with Y-cables for sharing one port with two devices or one device feeding two other devices (example: Cable Box-to-TV-and-Receiver). Just don't have two sources feeding one input turned on at the same time or they'll interfere with each other. Try that with optical cables.

Digital optical from DVD player produces no audio


Hi, It sounds like your receiver is still looking for audio on the coaxial connection, rather than the optical.

1. Make sure the optical connection is between your DVD player and the LD/DVD Optical In on the back of your receiver.
2. If you have a monitor connected to the receiver to show the on-screen display, click Setup from the main menu, click Input Mode, then, next to LD/DVD choose Optical. It may be set to coaxial, analog or auto.

Alternatively, choose the input source on the front of your receiver (LD/DVD), then press Input Mode button (bottom right, near the input selector) till it displays Digital Optical.

If all else fails, reset the receiver by:
1. Turn off the receiver
2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power.
3. All Clear should appear on the screen.

Use caution, however, as this will erase all the settings in your receiver.
