Question about Yamaha HTR-6080

1 Answer

Black and white video

I just bought a HTR-6080 from Yamaha.  The problem i'm having is the dvd player I have is hooked up to the reciever in the DVR spot of the component area.  I have my PS3 in the DVD HDMI spot.  Now the Picture of the DVD is in black and white and I can't seem to get color.  The sound is fine and the picture isn't fuzzy.  There just is no color for it.

Make sure there are not two video outputs emanating from the DVD player - this is the classic reason behind b/w picture.

Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

Your problem is not the Yamaha reciever. You need to figure out how to switch your tv remote to the inputs you have tried to plug the Wii into, Your TV remote should have some sort of "source" or "input" selection button, or it may have a row of buttons that are labled. Without knowing the brand of your TV or seeing the remote, I can't be more specific, but clearly this is a tv issue. You could also use the video out on your 5.1 reciever, but first solve the tv remote issue. Keith

Why is it so important to have BluRay audio on an old TV? Or its video into the Receiver?

What purposes are served with unnecessary 'hops' through electronics that can't use it or improve it?

Get the digitsl audio from the BluRay into the HTR and give the TV the best it can accept for video. Your TV probably has a mid-fi RCA audio input, too. The BlurRay has an output for that, too, if you realy want it.

BD and DVR hooked up to the receiver and from the receiver to the TV right? If yes: Your receiver set to pass sound trough to the TV, if you want sound from the home theater setting has to be changed.

If you can't use one of the Optical Digital Audio INPUTs on the HTR-6030, why don't you just use the Analog Audio Out on the HDD and an Analog Audio IN on the HTR-6030? It has one actually marked 'DVR', but any one would do.

No sound using digital coaxial connections


Couple of possibilities:
Press Audio Select on front of unit until "Analog" changes to "coax/opt"

or

When you select the component connected to the MULTI CH INPUT jacks as the input source (see page 38), this unit automatically
turns off the digital sound field processor, and you cannot select sound field programs.

Composite Video hook-up question


Generally, you only need one 'full' set of connections. If you are using s-video, you'll still need audio red and white or fiber...not both. Fiber is better. Where are you going to get your audio from? That's where you'll want to direct your feed. Some people cheat and run the red/white to the TV when they're too lazy to turn on the receiver! Mute it if it annoys you.
