I have an old Yamaha RX-V793. It works perfectly fine. Now I have a new LCD screen, a new DVD player and my new cable tv set top box. All 3 take and use HDMI. I'd like to be able to HEAR BOTH my DVD...


hi,
u can make connections only through digital inputs(optical and coaxial). u can connect the digital outputs of ur dvd and cable set top box to the receiver. no way to connect HDMI. HDMI is a high definition media interface. for using it u have to go for a av receiver that supports HDMI.
ok

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers


Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

Cable box HDMI connection probelm


This is from the Yamaha user guide:
The analog component video signals (with 480i (NTSC)/576i
(PAL) of resolution only) are converted to the S-video or
composite video signals and output at the VIDEO or S VIDEO
MONITOR OUT jacks.
The question is what kind of signals you get from your HD cable box.

HI dave, Rob here...I just looked at the back of the 1800, and you are in luck.

There are 3 HDMI inputs and 1 output to your plasma.

Step 1 hook up the plasma to the bottom HDMI port marked --------OUT-------.

Step 2 Plug the DVD recorder into input 4 ( marked as ---IN 4----)


Step 3 PLug your playstation into the one marked ---IN 2 ---

Now, yamaha's are VERY flexable......You will need to go into your manual and you can actually change the name that appears on the front panel display when you select something. So instead of IN 2 being the DVD input for a DVD player, you have your playstation hooked up to it, so you can easily edit , using the remote, the receiver so that instead of it saying DVD, the receiver will display "Playstation".

That is only one example of what the 1800 will do.

As the owner of an older RX-V2400, you REALLY REALLY need to spend some time and go into your owners manual.

The Yamaha is unbelievably customizeable and you can make it do pretty much whatever you want.

Shout me back if you have any more questions, and I will do my best to answer you, but its best to go through your owners manual.

Good luck and have fun.....Rob

I think the Yamaha will not upconvert anything below 480p through the HDMI output. You'll need to use the component out to the TV.
