Yamaha DSPAX761 no s-video to HDMI

Hi,

I have a Yamaha DSPAX761 that I bought yesterday, and I have got a PS3 and my sky box through it. I have the sound coming out of a full speaker set which is not a problem, but video is.

The ps3 is connected via hdmi (in the dvd socket), and there is an output hdmi cable to the plasma, so when the dvd input is selected, everything works as expected (the plasma has ps3 image, and the ps3 sound comes from the speakers. My sky box is the problem though, as it is connected using optical audio and s-video. When I select the dtv/cbl input, I get the sound absolutely fine, but no image. I also tried putting both the sound and video through the front mounted aux input port (and switching input to aux), but again, sound is fine, but no video. I have tried using both the s-video and composite ports (I know that the signal is fine from the back of the sky box on both, as I have tried it direct into the tv).

In short, why does my yamaha amp not currently convert the s-video through to the hdmi output? What setting have I missed?

Help me please!

Regards

Jon

S-Video and Composite are analogue and HDMI is digital. Your receiver dose not have the capability to convert from analogue to digital and hence you are not not getting any video.

I have a Panasonic tv model TH 42PZ80B; a Panasinic Blu-Ray dvd model DMP-BD50; a sky box (not as yet HD) and a Sony video SLV-SE 830G. I have a Satellite dish and a normal TV aerial. In the loft I have a...


You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w


Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

Just bought a samsung ps50a557s3f 50" plasma tv and the picture isnt very good.Have only got normal sky at the moment and i was wondering what the best settings are


Hi Smudger

Not sure if you still have this issue, but i have just bought this TV & also use sky (not + or HD)...

I got myself a Monster Cable Home Theatre surge protection unit from comet, basically it helps filter out all the background interference (picture & sound) & helps boost the signal sent to the TV..

I use a gold plated scart lead from the sky box to the TV & the picture is spot on.......i've not noticed any ghosting/pixeling etc & am well impressed...

The unit came with a top end HDMI cable & cost £135 (bit excessive you may think, but to buy the unit & cable seperate would cost £250!!) + the cable is a 'cable for life', so you can get a free updated cable as technology progresses :-)

My sky signal was always at half power (you can view this from the sky menu options) & now its almost full signal

If you are not connected to HD, pixelation can easily occur, especially if you are using an analogue connection. Here is a list, from best to worst, of how you should connect the video on your system.

1) BEST - HDI cable between the TV HDMI in and the sky box HDMI out. This is a full bandwidth digital audio and video connection.

2) BETTER - S-Video between your TV and sky box (with L & R audio)

3) GOOD - Component Video with L & R audio

4) STANDARD - single video cable (yellow) along with L & R audio

5) standard coax

These are listed, as stated, from best to worst quality. If you are not using a digital connection (HDMI), then pixelation can be expected.

What would be the best way of wiring up the optoma hd 73 projector to a sky box, bearing in mind i have taken the one hdmi input on the projector for my ps3


The best way is with HDMI. The second best is to use component (RBG) video.

You can get an HDMI switch box. This will be well worth it for you if you want the best possible quality.
