Hi jmiglio48

Most high end Yamaha s used Alps devices for switching and attenuation. The problem you face is probably caused by a noisy switch contact. They are a little hard to get into to contact clean, I have managed to spray the internals of this type of switch before by using a pin vice with a 1mm drill to bore small holes into each bank to get access to the switch contacts and then spray internals with contact cleaner/lubricant. As the switch is hermetically sealed, they are considered to be more a replaceable part. I suggest you do an inquiry with a Yamaha service agent in your locality to see if a new switch assembly can be sourced. I have replaced one here in Australia before(cost about $120 for the part), but current availability will depend on where you are located. If you need a hand to track one down, get back to me in here. Hope this helps you anyways. Good luck, a FixYa rating for this info will help my profile. Cheers

regards
Graeme

I need to connect a mixer to a yamaha rx-aq1000, in order to be able to mix any signal going thru the unit, with guitar, microphones, and input it back to play. Since this unit does not have an adapter...


Finally someone who understands tape loops. But, alas, I don't see how you can mix and monitor simultaneously on this receiver. The AV Out is the best bet for getting analog audio out but there's no way to get it back without de-selecting whatever source you're using. Bummer.

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable


Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.


Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.


Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.


Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.


Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.


Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV).
Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.

I dont know how to connect the wii to my rx-465 receiver.


The Wii AV cable should have a red/white pair of Audio Output jacks on it.
Check out pg. 8 of the Wii manual: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloads/WiiOpMn_setup.pdf
Connect the red/white RCA plugs from the AV cable to a line level audio input on your receiver. If you use AUX IN, then select AUX IN on the INPUT selector switch. You should then hear the sound from the Wii through your receiver/home theater system.

Can I connect component av cables "in" to my Yamaha RX-V365 and connect "out" to my TV and get both audio and video?


Receiver does support 3x component inputs and one component output. Both these can carry only video signal, not audio. So you have to connect audio separately, either stereo via analog 2x RCA connectors and digital SPDIC via optical (2x) or coaxial (1x) cable.

Yamaha rx-v456 av receiver, shut down with optica cable


Does it work without PS3 attached?
When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.

No picture from wii


The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately.
Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere.
If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube.

Yamaha RX-V800 Composite Video Signal Problem


Hey there fontdude, I will begin assuming you are running your a/v cable into your receiver and then out to the TV or Monitor. If this is the case, I suggest you run the video cable direct from DVD or VCR device to Tv/monitor. You can still run the audio through your receiver. The nature of your problem was probably related to video signal strength being weakened as it ran through your receiver. Good Luck! Let me know how it works for you.
