Yamaha HTR-6090: fire hazard?

HTR-6090 7.1 Channels Receiver">Yamaha HTR-6090 gives off a lot of heat, even when it has not been on for over 12 hours. Does this sound right? I am concerned that this could be a fire hazard or at least reduce the life of the equipment.

    I just set up my new Yamaha 6090 tonight. After pending a couple hours connecting everything, I turned to system on and saw a hd picture on my screen for an instant. Then the screen went black and 10 seconds later, there was a popping sound , followed by a significant amount of smoke from the receiver.

    Scary stuff!!!!

I would check your Outlets to make sure you have Clean Power and are Properly Grounded. That's usually an Electrical Problem, Not the Equipment. Although Sometimes you get Bad Apple!

How to connect bose 901 to yamaha htr -6090

Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 35 watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

Please don't panic and think that there is anything wrong with your Yamaha receiver. A lot of people are having this problem with set top box reception. Time lag / phase differences caused by satellite transmission can make your Receivers digital decoders go nuts !!!.The working principal is too complex to explain on this page. I have had clients call up and say on some channels only one speaker works in a 5.1 setup !!!!.You noticed DD and DTS signals are working fine.

My htr-6090 wont let my dock be on zone2

Zone 2 will only work with an analog signal (RCA) If you use a stereo mini to rca adapter from the ipods headset jack and plug it into the VAux on the front of the receiver it will work. Downside to this is the audio is "dual controlled" Volume from the iPod and Volume from the Receiver. Set the volume no further than 70-75% on the iPod then adjust to taste with Zone 2. Hope this helps

Have no sound from my tv panasonic th-58px600u which is hook up to my receiver with an hdmi and fiber optic for the video out into my receiver yamaha 6090

Do you expect TV audio to go TOWARD the receiver in this setup? The HDMI is to get video and audio TO the TV. The BEST TV-related audio will come from the device supplying it, not the TV.

Try this. Take the digital audio from the cable / satellite box into the receiver. Ditto for games or whatever.

After all, what else enters the TV that isn't already connected directly to the receiver?

There is a product called hd EZ lock, which acts as a strain relief and HDMI Cable lock. There is a very good chance it will help with your issues. It eliminates stress by supporting your cable from the chassis, and it secures your HDMI Cable, eliminating intermittent signal dropouts.

It is universal and works with most HDMI Cables and HDMI Components on the market, and typically installs in a couple of minutes.
