    Hello and thanks for your quick reply.... However --

    That does not seem to work only because I have the following cable Red - Yellow - White top row on PD-800 and when that is connected directly to HDTV it is seen by the TV and it works.

    When I connect the second set of cables from the PD-800 Red -Blue - Green plus the R - Y - W cables to the Yamaha I do not see it on the setup of the TV. I have attempted to plug them into all available connections and it is still not recognized. The only L and R connectors are for my JBL speakers which are working with the Yamaha / HDTV / Ipod. So I am still stuck and puzzled. Thank you - Please if you can still help I really appreaciate it. Regards / Alan

You will need an RCA audio cable (Red/White)

On the back of the TV there should be a connection labeled as "Audio Out".
Connect the RCA cable to this connection and then connect the other end to the AUDIO 1 connection on the back of the AMP.

Tune the TV to the DVD player and the AMP to Audio 1 and this should get you sound through the AMP.

Good Luck....

1. 1)Make sure your amplifier and DVD player are turned off.2)Plug one Audio cable into Front L and R in the Audio Out section of the DVD player. Connect the plugs at the other end into Front L and R on your amplifier.3)Plug one Audio cable into Surround L and R in the Audio Out section of the DVD player. Connect the plugs at the other end into Surround L and R on your amplifier.4)Plug the last Audio cable into Center and Subwoofer in the Audio Out section of the DVD player. Connect the plugs at the other end into Center and Subwoofer on your amplifier.
---Match the colors of the audio cables to the colors on the input jacks for the DVD player and the amplifier.
o When you plug in the Audio cables be sure to match the L and R labels on the DVD player and the amplifier with the L and R plugs on the cords.
o Make sure that all wires (including the power supply) are connected properly before turning on the DVD player.
o Adjust volume levels of audio output devices to a low setting before turning the DVD player on to avoid damage to speakers or amplifiers. Adjust the volume after starting DVD playback.
o Set your DVD player in a dry, well-ventilated area that is not close to any heat sources or exposed to direct sunlight.
o Never place containers full of liquid close to or on top of the DVD player.

We cannot get sound through the yamaha amplifier while watching a dvd? TV and Foxtel works but we only get sound from the tv when we are watching a dvd. we have a Sony Bravia TV and a Yamaha HTR6130...

You need to connect the unnamed DVD player's audio to the receiver according to the player's manual and then assign the digital input on the HTR (if applicable). THAT would be in the HTR's manual (page 6).

I'd run the DVD's best video straight to the TV. Nothing good comes from having unnecessary cabling or interconnects zig-zagging across the room.

Will not work

Hi, you'll want the 3 colored RCA cable to hook this up to an older TV.  Yellow is for Video Out on player and Video In on TV.  Then, on player, correspond the red and white to their holes for Audio Out, and match them with Audio In on your TV.  You may have 2 spots on your TV that are labeled Audio In.  Try them both - the one that works should very close to you Video In line.  
Hope that helps!

Sound wont work right /not much at all

Headphone connector is usually designed to pass audio to speakers when the headphones are disconnected. A corroded or bent connector will lose audio. Does the headphone audio level seem ok? Try inserting and removing the headphone jack several times to clean the connector.
