Question about Yamaha RX-V863 Receiver

1 Answer

No video from RX-V863

No video signal comes through the HDMI output(just audio).

I have a Mitsubshi HC6500 projector connected to the receiver through the HDMI out and a HD DVR connected to the DVR connection with an HDMI cable.

I get audio but no video. If I plug in the RCA video connector then I can see the menu on the projector, but still no video. On the HDMI setting I get nothing on the projector, even the menu.

    Reading on the internet, I found a lot of comments about the cable size being a factor so I used a small cable to retest the connection. It still didn't work, but as I was pulling it out I got a signal. So messing about with it I was able to get a signal if I pulled the cable to the left a lot. So I think it is just a bad HDMI connector. Anyone know a good repair shop?

This reciever might not upconvert component or composite to hdmi, which means if you have anything but hdmi hooked up you will not see it. Check your manual for what all the reciver will ouput.

    In my past dealings with repair shops I have only found that they are crooks. My subgestion would be to run the hdmi directly from the projector to the hd dvr and an just use the reciever for audio only.

Hi,
Problem seems in standby power supply board and most likely leaky capacitor(s) or cold/ dry solder connections in that circuit board. It is hardware problem and does not look like speaker wires or connection cables fault.

I have my cable box hooked up with HDMI and it works great. I have my blu ray player hooked up with components (R,G,B). Im not getting audio or video this way. Can anyone help?


Keep in mind that while HDMI will pass audio with video over one single cable, the Component connectors (RGB) although being 3 cables only passes the video signal, you will also need to connect up a separate connection from your DVD player to you receiver for audio, be it analog (red/white RCA connectors) or optical
Be sure to specify in the DVD's on screen menu which audio output you choose as audio may not pass out all available connections unless enabled. You may also need to select which video output you are using.
As far as not getting video, just be sure you connections are correct (red to red) etc as this would explain the no video...
I hope this helps,

My wii won't play video through my Yamaha RX-V465. The audio comes through OK. I have a normal signal video component cable and i have connected the receiver to the TV with a HDMI cable. i have tried...


This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.

From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.

So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.

Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.

Do you have all 5+1 speakers connected? You need to go to the Setup menu of yamaha and set which speakers you have and which you don't. For example if you don't have the Center speaker connected, receiver will redirect and mix the sound to the other speakers.
Blue-ray film over HDMI should automatically output via all your configured speakers (nothing to be configured).

Yamaha reciever doesnt recognise hdmi from Mac laptop


Max does recognize receiver over HDMI-CEC.
The problem is that DVI output is for video only. Macbook won't (and can't) output audio via DVI. So yamaha receives only video signal via the HDMI connector. You can check that by pressing Option button on yamaha remote and choosing Signal Info - you will see info about video, but no audio signal present.

Unable to play DTS-HD & True-HD


What do you hear? Do all other modes work ok?

If Audio Select (Page 44 and 98) is set to HDMI you will hear silence if no HDMI signal is present. I think AUTO is the best choice here.

-------

On Page 98 of the manual it says a bunch of things concerning automatic signal detection and input selection.

Initial configuration D) INIT. CONFIG
Use this feature to select the settings of the audio input jack select, active decoders and extended surround when you tum on this unit.
....

Audio select AUDIO SELECT
Use this feature to designate the default audio input jack select setting (see page 44) for the input sources connected to the DIGITAL INPUT jacks when you tum on the power of this unit.


HDMI set E)HDMI SET
Use this feature to select the component to play back HDMI audio signals.

Support audio S. Audio
Use this feature to select whether to play back HDMI audio signals on this unit or on another HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack on the rear panel of this unit.
...

CHOICE = RX-V663

FUNCTION
Plays back HDMI audio signals on this unit. The HDMI audio signals input at the HDMI input jacks of this unit are not output to the HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack on the rear panel of this unit.

CHOICE = OTHER
HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack.

NOTES
This unit transmits audio and video signals input at the HDMI input jacks to the HDMI out jack only when this unit is turned on even if "S.AUDIO" is set to "OTHER".

I'd look in these areas for specific guidance.

Video Monitor


Check the Setup menu. Goto Video setup and make sure "conversion" is on. Another way to test is to hook up DVD, Cable Box etc. using only the standard "composite" video output (yellow). It should pass thru monitor out regardless of the internal setting on the receiver. Most electronics now are hooked up with Component, HDMI, or DVI which would require the receiver to downconvert the signal in order for you to view it on another video source. Hope this helps. If you still have a problem, list all your equipment model #s and I can troubleshoot more accurately.
