Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

1 Answer

NO VIDEO!! Set up difficulty.....I am not getting a picture on my screen for cable. I am using two HDMI-DVI cables...one is in the 'monitor out' jack on receiver to the DVI input on my LCD tv....the other is running from back of my DVR/cable box to the appropriate HDMI input on receiver. When I switch sources (ie. from DVD to DVR/cable) the cable video displays fine...for 2 seconds and then blinks and then goes to black screen?? For the love of baby Jesus, help me. The receiver is Yamaha HTR 6060..which I believe is the same as the V661

    Nothin'...there doesn't appear to be any options or mention of 1080i or 720p on the DVR/cable box....before I bought this receiver I was just running box to tv with DVI cable. Does the receiver settings effect it by chance...I believe I've set the settings as they should be (I even tried changing them around).?????

How can i connect my hp pavillion s5610y to my bravia tv


This is a bit complicated since there is no HDMI output capability to the PC, only VGA and DVI. First, check to see if the Bravia has one of its HDMI ports listed as DVI capable. If it does, it should have accompanying audio jacks (red/white) for it. What you would need to get is two different cables for interface. The first is a DVI-to HDMI cable to run from the PC DVI port to the Bravia DVI-compatible HDMI port. You cannot run the DVI to a regular HDMI port because if you do you will get only picture and no sound. DVI outputs, unlike HDMI outputs, do not carry the audio signal. A DVI-compatible HDMI port on a TV set will connect the video from the HDMI port and the audio from the reserved audio port accompanying it. The second cable you need will be a mini stereo audio plug to RCA jacks. This will connect between the PC audio out (green), and the DVI audio plugs on the set. See pictures for cables below

Once you have this done, selecting the appropriate HDMI port on the set should result in audio and video getting to the unit. If you only need the video (you are going to use the PC speakers), then you don't need the audio cable and you can use any HDMI port, but you cannot control the volume using the TV set remote. You would need to use the PC volume settings. (Just as an afterthought if the set has no DVI-compatible HDMI port).

How to switch from analog to digital mode


Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.

Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.

If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps:
1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.

2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure.
Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.

3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC.
Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI.
Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.

Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.

Monitor has permanent vertical bars down the right side of the display


Hi there! If you've ruled out any "bad caps" as well as tested both the VGA & DVI inputs, then I would speculate that the actual screen itself has gone bad. If this is indeed the case, then I'd recommend popping for a replacement monitor. By the way, if you own a mid-sized flat panel LCD TV which has HDMI ports on it, you can use that for your monitor instead.. If your video card on the computer doesn't (natively) have an HDMI-out jack, then you can order a "DVI-HDMI" adapter on-the-CHEAP at www.monoprice.com. -- That's where I get all my "specialty adaptors". They truly have the best prices around!

I hope I've helped you at least a bit! I wish you the best of luck!

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

I NEED SONY BRAVIA T32 FULL MANUAL...how to conect to computer and camera


Hello there,

Here is the link to the full manual:
http://support.sony-asia.com.edgesuite.net/consumer/IM/4110401121.pdf

Before connecting your devices...
The signals that enter the TV and connected devices will need to be output in the correct format using the suitable connections. Below are the different types of video connectors. When connecting the TV, use the inputs that are available on your devices that provide the best video performance.
Video performance level Name Aspect Signal transmitted Separate audio connection required arrw.jpg HDMI cnn_hdmi.jpg Picture + Sound No DVI*1 cnn_dvi.jpg Picture Yes
l.jpg r.jpg
L-AUDIO-R Component video cnn_component.jpg Picture S-Video cnn_s_video.jpg Picture Composite video cnn_composite.jpg Picture RF/Coaxial cnn_coaxial.jpg Picture + Sound No
*1 If the equipment has a DVI jack and not an HDMI jack, connect the DVI jack to the HDMI IN (with HDMI-to-DVI cable and/or adapter jack), and connect the audio jack to the AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks of HDMI IN. (The DVI connector is for video signals only) To enjoy the best visual experience with your system, it is preferable to connect your best devices with the highest quality connections available. For example: your Blu-Ray Disc player or HD Set Top Box with HDMI, followed by your DVD player with Component, then your Video Cassette Recorder with S-video etc.Note: The quality of the picture also strongly depends on the quality of the cable used.
HDMI The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting high definition video and audio signals. HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source, such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). DVI The Digital Visual Interface is capable of transmitting high definition video, but does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA). It is possible to connect an HDMI device to a DVI device using a HDMI to DVI adapter. Component video Component video is an analogue connection. It is capable of transmitting high definition signals. Component does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA) S-Video Separate video, abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C is an analogue video signal that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and colour), unlike composite video which carries the entire set of signals in one signal line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries standard definition video. It does not carry audio on the same cable. Composite video Composite video is an analogue video (no sound) format. This is the connector you should use if you do not have any other connector available, in terms of quality. RF/Coaxial RF Coaxial Cable connection is used for transferring television signals (audio and video) originating from an antenna or cable box to a Television.

I just want to know what kind of cable I need to connect my LTV-37w2HD TV to my computer?@highes.net


The video cable should be a VGA cable, assuming your computer has a VGA connector. Get one that has M/M ends. This is sometimes listed as a 15 pin D-sub connection. Then connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cord (m/m) between the audio out (speaker/headphone) pf the computer to the TV's VGA audio in (if you want to use the TV speakers).

If your computer has an HDMI or DVI output, I do not believe that you can connect to the TVs HDMI port. (The signal from the computer is not the same as that from a set top box.) If you have a DVI port, get a DVI to VGA adapter and then connect to the VGA cable. (You could use a DVI-DVI cable and then the DVI to VGA adapter at the TV. However, space is an issue at the TV.)

Make sure that the VGA port is enabled on the computer. (Some newer computers have a different video port enabled initially.) This may require entering your BIOS just after turning on the computer. Usually you need to strike Esc, F1 or F2 repeatedly starting when you press the power button. (F10 is also a BIOS access with some manufacturers - the key will be listed in a splash screen that is only visible for a few seconds.)

With the computer and the TV off, connect the cables. Then turn on the TV and set the input to VGA. Next turn on the computer. (If this is the only monitor attached, the computer should find the correct resolution (Windows). If you are using a dual monitor option, then you may have to enable the TV as a monitor. This will depend on the OS. For my Windows 7 laptop, it's right click on the desktop and choose Graphics Properties. Set the monitor options for both, external or attached and click Apply. Then click OK when a confirmation window appears. With my Windows 7 desktop, it's right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. Similarly choose the settings, click Apply then OK to confirm.)

I hope this helps.

How do i set up multi screen on my 42" HDTV Insignia


You may use an HDMI / DVI cable to connect to your computer. Next if you have windows 7 hold your windows key and hit the letter "P" (for projector) this will allow you to bring on the multi-montior feature on your computer. Make sure to select the option that says EXTEND. Please note that when connecting a DVI device you must use the HDMI IN1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV. you cannot use HDMI In 2.

1. Turn off your TV and all connected equipment.
2. Connect an HDMI/DVI cable or DI-HDMI adapter between the HDMI in 1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV and DVI OUT jack on the DVI device.
3. Connect an audio cable between the DVI audio IN jacks on the back of your tv and the DVI audio jack on the dvi device.
turn on the tv then turn on the dvi device.

I want to hook up external speakers to my Acer H213H for when my PS3 is hooked up to it.


What method are you using to connect to the monitor?

If you are using the HDMI -> DVI adapter it does not support sound. HDMI does, but DVI does not.

If that's the way you are set up then all you need to do is use the HDMI -> DVI adapter for your video and use the regular RCA connections for audio.

You can set the video and audio settings in the PS3 with the "Display Settings" and "Sounds Settings"

That way you just use the red and white RCA ends to connect to a speaker system, the yellow won't be in use at all.
