Surround problem with Yamaha HTR-5930 5.1 Channels Receiver

The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.

Yamaha HTR-5830 does not work with Sony PS3 optical cable connection. There is no sound at all. Do I need an HDMI cable. Right now I only have component cables which work fine with the red and white...

Make sure you have the "audio input mode" on "Auto" it's a small button on the front of the Yamaha. Then go into the PS3's Audio setup and make sure it's set to Digital. Hope this helps

I have RX V861 and want to operate my sony blu ray dvd player BDP S360 with yamaha remote but no codes????

Try any older Sony DVD player code like the DVP-CX995. Sony has had the same basic codes for years. You will be missing blue, green, yellow, and red buttons since they are not available on the remote.
For a true one button solution check out the MX-900.

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.
