Do you have the volume at -5dB when listening to source 1? That would in most cases be far beyond the receivers capabilities when listening on an average loud recording from a standard source. I would guess that your source has a way to low signal.

However, i assume the answer to the question is this:
There is a way to trim the levels of each source (Input). It can be adjusted -6dB to +6dB.
Select the input you want to adjust. Hit Set Menu on the remote. Then Manual Setup -> Input Menu - > Volume Trim. Adjust up or down. In your case adjust your source 1 to + 6dB and all other inputs to -6dB.

I have no sound out of the front speakers. Mute button is off, speakers work fine. Only have sound (very little) if volume is turned way up.


NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's
full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume
it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape
Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead'
spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate
every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape
Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

A little more triage would be in order before you take a knife to it.

Turn the volue to something in the middle.

If it's only an analog source doing it I would suspect a bad switch contact somewhere in the signal path. Typically, it might be a switch you rarely use, like a Tape Monitor or Mute. It's wise to occasionally (with power OFF) manipulate all manual controls throughput their ranges a number of times to wipe oxides from their contacts.

Yamaha RX-V365 unable to receive 5.1 audio from TV with HDMI


If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.

Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....

I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.

I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.

Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?

This note is on Page 11 of the manual:

Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor

================
"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.

I have seen this type of thing with several remotes.  You have some light source in the room that is interfering with the reception of the ir.  Turn off all light sources in the room and then try.  You might be surprised!

No zone 2 sound coming from yamaha amp rx-v861


Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,

Yamaha RX-V657 Zone 2


Suggestion by clarkent22

I called and spoke with Yamaha support staff (Chuck) who was very helpful. I was able to get my issue resolved hopefully this works for you too.

Couple of solutions:
1) Go into the Menu setting (Manual SetUp/Speaker Set) and make sure that you do not have Presence Speakers or Suround Back Speakers
2) Also in the Menu settings (Manual SetUp/Options/Multi Zone Settings) make sure that your Zone 2 Amplifier is set to "Int" (assuming you are not using external amp
3) Zone 2 can only accept an analog signal (not digital)... so there are two steps to this one. First, make sure that you either run only analog, or if you run digital and analog then you need to select "Analog Input" on the front of the unit. If yours was working earlier, my guess is that your input settings got switched to digital (or auto) You need to have analog set up for each specific external source (DVD, Cable/DTS, etc)....
4) This model receiver will only let you control Zone 2 with the remote control. You can power it on the receiver unit. But to select your source you have to press the Amp button, then the ** button. Then you control Zone 2 and you can toggle sources and adjust volume. (Check your owners manual for programing remote for zone 2.. think I pressed the "code" button and then 2999.)

Hope this helps... it worked for me If not call Yamaha they were very helpful.
