Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

1 Answer

No DVD Picture

I'm trying t hook up a Sony DVD/VCR Player/Recorder (RDR-VX-515) to my RX-V661 using component video connections. I get sound but no picture. Do I need to reset the input source for the watch DVD button in front of the unit? I also tried S-Video with the same result.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.

Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.

Rca cables in place of component cables

Typically the Yellow is video and Red and White are Sound. So only one is for video two are for sound normally.
Basically they are about the same thing, the only difference there will be cables are made different. Some cables are better than others at transferring signals be they video or sound. So quality might be affected slightly.
