Setting up my rx v2400 to my tv


The setup may depend on your TV and other components and how you plan to use the system. Does your TV have analog or digital audio outputs? The receiver has analog and both types of digital inputs (coaxial and optical).

Use the best cables that you can. You can get all cables at online cable stores for much less than at the electronics big box stores. I'll assume that you already have the speakers connected to the receiver.

Next you can either connect your devices (cable box, blue-ray player) the receiver's inputs. Then connect the receiver's video out to the TV. This is great if you will only listen to the devices with the home theater system. Then you can also connect the TV audio out to the receiver for the OTA TV audio. For this you probably need component video cables and audio cables. These are all cables with RCA plugs.. Then get another audio cable for the analog or digital optical output of your TV. For some TVs the only audio out is the headphone jack. In that case, you also need a 3.5 mm to RCA adapter (the simplest is 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F for connecting to an RCA audio cable). For this method, you won't have to turn off the TV speakers most of the time; the TV won't have any audio.

Alternatively, connect each device audio/video out to the TV's input and then only connect the TV's audio out to the receiver DTV audio IN. Since the receiver doesn't have HDMI, this is the best option if your devices have HDMI out. For this, use the appropriate number of HDMI cables and the analog or digital optical audio cable from the TV to the receiver. Then turn off the TV speakers and enable the external speakers in the TV menu. You can connect to any of the receiver's inputs. If you use the labels, you'll find it easier to turn on the inputs.

If you have any devices with composite video output, use the same basic steps as for the component
The documentation for the RX-V2400 is available at the Yamaha product site: http://usa.yamaha.com/en/products/audio-visual/hifi-components/stereo-receivers/rx-v2400_black__u/?mode=model . You'll need to be a registered Yamaha user (Easy-Pass) to read the manual online.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your devices (including the model of the TV) for more specific information.

I have a new Denon AVR 1911 receiver all hooked up to my input devices and output thru a single HDMI cable to my Samsung LCD tv.... problem with getting audio from my DVD player: my DVD player is older...


Not likely that all those things are faulty.

The TV and DVD player make and model would be helpful to know. I would recommend running its BEST digital audio to the receiver and its stereo analog audio to the TV just in case you want to watch and hear the DVD in a lo-fi setting without the Denon. I generally advocate for connecting anything high-end (audio or video) ONLY to equipment that can use it or enhance it. Otherwise you may just be wasting expensive cable and adding unnecessary hops and connections that can fail.

Why do you want the audio to go from the DVD to the TV through the Denon? Are there no speakers on the Denon? Modern TV's have lots of inputs for the flexibility I recommend but rarely have decent audio or speakers.

How do I connect my computer to my Sony STR-D915.What if any special cable,adapters,equipment do I need to have all computer sound relayed through the speakers I have ?thanks


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts (*) to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

More-advanced sound cards would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

A digital-capable receiver would accept 44.1 kHz for normal CD or DTS sources. Some diddling with the output sampling frequency might allow digital multichannel audio to be decoded by the receiver.

Adding another device to the system


Well, if analog works for you connect the CD player's analog RCA cables to the VCR inputs.

Can you imagine why you NEED to have the TV audio coming into the receiver from the TV? Are the TV's audio system or speakers superior to the audio section of every other source of TV-related programming? We hope not. Does the TV receive any programming that the receiver can not? Maybe games. I imagaine this MIGHT justify running analog TV audio back to the receiver.

Your cable box and your DVD player have both digital and analog audio outputs. The gray area is what your TV has for audio inputs. It could survive with simple RCA analog audio in from both and none to or from the receiver. Then you could watch Lo-Fi cable and DVD's without the receiver turned on.

That would free up the TV analog audio input for other things.

I imagine your DVD player is using one of the digital inputs on the receiver. If you have one each optical and coaxial audio output among your DVD and Cable Box you could place them in the two available diigital inputs.

Now, what about the CD's digital output? For stereo music you're not likely to be able to hear any difference between it and the analog input BUT it can still be connected digitally IF it has a coaxial output. Coaxial digital inputs can be shared.

Get an RCA-splitter and join the two units entering the coaxial audio input just before they enter that connection. Either will work just fine if you TURN THE OTHER ONE OFF when you want to us it.

Make sure your "Input Select" "Audio" portion of the main menu is set to "Auto" you may have it in analog thus only allowing audio from the front analog input. Also check your digital input select option as well. you may have it assigned to another source input. Go into the main menu of the receiver and you will find all the settings. Hope this helps. If you still have issues, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further.

No analog comming out of receiver when optical input is used .


as a rule...in order to get analog audio out of a receiver, it must have an analog input. you could use a digital to analog converter between the tv and stereo or come out of both of your source devices (ps3, cable) with analog to the receiver. good luck

Sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv


Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

I'd like to connect my HP laptop to Yamaha 663 receiver


Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.
