We just recently purchased the above item and can't program the remote. The cable box is a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 HD. Thanks for any help.

Re: Yamaha HTR 6040

Let me wrap this up by saying you have to use the remote that came with the receiver. Although the remote will change channels it cannot be used to find the guide of the cable company. But using the Yamaha remote otherwise works quite well as it gives you complete control of the receiver. As far as I'm concerned that is the end of it unless you buy one of those fancy hundred odd dollar remotes.

Re: Yamaha HTR 6040

I e-mailed Yamaha (Canada) about this problem and they said the only codes they know of are the codes that are in the owner's manual. But these codes just appear to be for the remote control that comes with the product and not for the cable remote.

So can someone out there come up with a solution?

How can i use the remote from my yamaha rx-v465 reveiver to control the scientific atlanta 8300hb cable box?

Yamaha remote has ability to control other devices (TV, DVD, cable box, ...) only by pre-defined set of models. Look up in your manual to the Yamaha where you will find list of manufacturers and models of devices with corresponding codes. If you can find your model there, program it into the remote. If not, you can try some of the other codes, at least program +/- and other simple functions should be quite compatible among brands.

I would like to hook up my components without having to turn on the receiver to watch tv from DVR or Cable if possible. I have Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 HD Cable DVR w/HDMI out, Samsung TV w/HDMI ,...

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

How to hook up everything!

I have similar equipment.

You should use an audio digital cable to connect the bluray to the Yamaha receiver and another digital audio cable to connect the HD box to the Yamaha receiver.

Hope this helps.

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.
