I have a Yamaha RX-V861 that has worked perfectly for years but now I am having an issue. My LG TV makes a popping noise and turns off. It does this 5 or 6 times and then everything works normally. My

If your unit has HDMI Control turn it off on your Yamaha but if it does not have it and your TV does then turn it off on your TV. You can test that theory by unhooking the HDMI cable and using any of the other forms of video output your Yamaha supports, so if you hook it up using component cables or even composite cables we know the problem is coming from the HDMI and the above steps should fix that. Good luck....

Yamaha rx-v1600 hdmi output not working

Have you inspected the HDMI socket? I had the same problem and the socket had been damaged by a tight fit cabinet with insuficcient space behind the amplifier. A sideways cable tug on the inserted HDMI cable had snapped a small piece of plastic seperating the two rows of HDMI connectors, and three were splayed out, so no connection when plugged in. Solution was to carefully re-align the connector fingers and glue a tiny piece of insulating material between the two rows. The output now works perfectly. A bit fiddley, but worth the trouble when you look at how much Yamaha would charge to fit a new socket, or even a new board!

I am using a logitech harmony one remote. i have a yamaha rx-v463 hooked up to a phillips hdtv, i am running hdmi from revr to tv. i have cable box hooked upi hdmi to recvr and bluray player hooked up to...

The remote has nothing to do with this.

Get into the manual. Page 14 says Component Video In will go to Component Video Out, not HDMI. No analog-digital video conversion is implied.

No volume from surround sound system on dtvcbl cable, dvd or cd modes with yamah rx-v861 powered on.?

Have you looked at the manual? How did it fare using the set up test tones? Did you assign the digital inputs?

The unnamed sources probably have manuals, too.

I need to hook up a yamaha 465 receiver

It has two HDMI inputs and one HDMI monitor output for the TV, so assuming all your devices are HDMI-capable, YES.

Intermittant Audio with Yamaha RX-V465 only from cable box

I have the same receiver... You can try pressing the Option button and choosing Signal Info to see what audio signal the receiver sees and if that changes over time. Maybe the cable box is not outputting according to specifications... TV can live with that, but receiver maybe can't.
You can also try to connect the cable box via SPDIF cable (optical or coax) to see if it helps or not.

No video

I am not sure if you have gone into the Receivers Menu or not? If you have NOT! Then please try this: Go into the Receivers Menu (If you do not see the MENU on the TV you can hook up a Composite (Yellow) Cable from the Receivers Monitor Out (Yellow) and select the Input on the TV that you plug into) Look in the Menu for Inputs or In/Out Config. or Video Setup. Look for the Input that you are using for that Device. Change the Video setting to HDMI. I also recommend doing this for you Audio as well. Find the Audio Inputs and MATCH each Input to there DEVICE and CABLE (Connection) Being used. Also check in the Receiver Menu for UPSCALE or UPSCALER. Turn this on or off to see if your TV is Compatible! Hope This Helps! P.S. Check the Manual for Upscaling Capabilities NOT all Receivers upscale and route the SAME!
