Question about Yamaha RX-V459 Receiver

1 Answer

Vocals missing while playing with 2 speakers

Have a Yamaha "RX-V459" amplifier connected to a Phillips "DVP-5986K" DVD Player through a coaxial connect. Video is from DVD player to TV through 'component' jacks.

I have only 2 front Polk "Monitor 70" tower speakers connected by RCA to the RX-V459.

However, the vocals in the original DVD title "The Bourne Supremacy" (if the name of the movie is imp) when played in the above set-up is non-existent.
The pre-set menu in the amp is set to "Straight".

Could you please help me with the amp set-up so that I could enjoy the movie.

Go to the amp "Basic Setup" and alter basic setup according to
- the size of the room (details in the manual)
- alter the no. of channels e.g. if you have only 2 front speakers, change the channels to 2.1 (.1 for the subwoof)
- Once the setup is changed, the amp pumps in sound according to the set up

All the best

Just bought a used yamaha receiver model RXv793 do not know how to hook it up.


First do not panic by seeing all sockets in the back side of the receiver.You can connect 5 speakers and one subwoofer on the speaker A switch and maybe a second pair of stereo speakers on the B switch.All the speaker sockets have red and black terminals, so do all speakers. Just get decent cables ( You can buy a whole connection Kit if you want ) and connect the corresponding outlets to you speakers.If you have a powered subwoofer connect the subwoofer input to a socket labeled Subwoofer pre out on the RXV. You will need a RCA to RCA cable for that Next you will need a coaxial or Optic fiber cable to connect a DVD player digitally. The back of the DVD player will have a socket marked coaxial out, and so does the RXV's backside. Just link them .
Turn on the system everything should work. If you are not getting DVD sound there is small button on the RXV front panel called Digital input -- set it to auto ( keep pressing the button and it will scroll through various modes). Also remember to switch on speaker A on the front panel.

I getting noise in yamaha rx-459 please help.


I used to get noise as well. It turned out to be that one of the cables to the speakers was loose. Try tightening the cable connections to the Yamaha and to the speakers.

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?


6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

I have an old Yamaha RX-V793. It works perfectly fine. Now I have a new LCD screen, a new DVD player and my new cable tv set top box. All 3 take and use HDMI. I'd like to be able to HEAR BOTH my DVD...


hi,
u can make connections only through digital inputs(optical and coaxial). u can connect the digital outputs of ur dvd and cable set top box to the receiver. no way to connect HDMI. HDMI is a high definition media interface. for using it u have to go for a av receiver that supports HDMI.
ok

YAMAHA YDS-11 TO A RX-V459


Hi, as per yamaha site RX-V459 doesn't have the DOCK connector which is used by YDS-11 dock (or the bluetooth module). This is the only possibility to connect the YDS-11. YDS nor receiver don't have USB connector and they are not needed.
For example RX-V465 does have DOCK connector and supports YDS-11.
For your receiver, you can use only analog audio cable with your iPod.

I have HDMI cable from TV to RX-V365. HDMI from DVD player to RX-V365. HDMI from DirectTV receiver to RX-V365. Speakers attached. I can watch the TV and the DVD player... but the sound is still coming...


the RX-V365 cannot process the audio from the HDMI input. You will also need to connect a seperate audio input (either coaxial or optical) into the relevant input in the rear of the RX-V365

I have RX V861 and want to operate my sony blu ray dvd player BDP S360 with yamaha remote but no codes????


Try any older Sony DVD player code like the DVP-CX995. Sony has had the same basic codes for years. You will be missing blue, green, yellow, and red buttons since they are not available on the remote.
For a true one button solution check out the MX-900.

1) Check to see if the screen says "EXT DECODER". If it does, press the EXT DECODER button again and this should fix the problem
2) Press input mode button until the display reads auto or digital. It may be set to analog.

You need a coax to RCA converter. Do a google search, Belkin makes one, Radio Shack probably has one too.
