This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.

From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.

So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.

Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.

Please check your TV settings and the optical cable.

Is a yamaha rx-v465 supposed to recieved both


What connection do you use?
This receiver supports both video and audio over HDMI. It has also other video inputs, but it doesn't have any video processing.
So if you connect your equipment for example to component video in, its video output will be present only on component video out (NOT on the HDMI output nor s-video output).

I have yamaha rx-v465 receiver and yds-11 docking station. how can i get tv{through hdmi 1}to display what's on ipod.i have nano w/video camera{newest one]. is this possible


I think it is not possible, because RX-V465 does not have HDMI-video processing. It can only pass-thru the HDMI video to HDMI-out, but not alter the signal in any way.
If it should support TV output with YDS-11, it will work only via analog video out (s-video / composite / component).

I have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to my Yamaha RX-V465.When I play a blueray disc the signal info shows PCM.Shouldn't it show Dolby Digital or True HD?


Your PS3 probably has a setting for what digital bitstream it produces. Check it out. Dolby Digital is probably what you want.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

Intermittant Audio with Yamaha RX-V465 only from cable box


I have the same receiver... You can try pressing the Option button and choosing Signal Info to see what audio signal the receiver sees and if that changes over time. Maybe the cable box is not outputting according to specifications... TV can live with that, but receiver maybe can't.
You can also try to connect the cable box via SPDIF cable (optical or coax) to see if it helps or not.
