Help setting up Yamaha RX-V461

I need help setting up my new Yamaha RX-V461 receiver. I've connected an RCA DVR and a Hitachi DVD player as input sources. The Yamaha front-panel input icons show only 2-channel (FL/FR) instead of 5.1 input icons. Sound comes through the DVR and the DVD. Did the auto set-up and all six speakers were adjusted properly. What can I do to get the 5.1 from my receiver?

I am unable to set FM presets or tune in any stations except those already programmed in be the first owner

Typically, only stereo inputs exist on any comsumer-grade receiver, and the actual decoding to 3, 4, 5, 6, and even 7.1 is done internal in the receiver. When a "placement" signal is detected by the receiver, the sound is routed to the correct speaker.Please refer to a user manual

RX-V663 won't change input automatically


Be sure to have HDMI Controll function turned on in the Setup Menu. But also the DVR and BD player should support this.
For example I have both Toshiba DVD player and Popcron Hour player connected via HDMI to my receiver which is then connected via HDMI to TV. When I turn on DVD, it changes the input on receiver and also on TV. But the Popcorn doesn't support it won't change anything.

I own a Yamaha RX-V461 and since making a few changes, new Bravia TV and BLu-Ray DVD player, I no longer jhave sub woofer output. I bought a new sub woofer cable and even bought a new Polk 8" 300watt sub....


You can reset the settings to factory defaults via the Advanced menu - it should be in your manual (I have RX-V465).
Do it from the standby mode.
Press the STANDBY button on front panel (not remote) together with STRAIGHT button on the front panel. Now you are in the Advanced Setup. Scroll to the INIT menu and select ALL.
Now you will have all settings in the default.

I am trying to hook up a powered sub woofer to a yamaha rx-v461 and i dont know what cables go where on the back of the sub there are two speaker ports and there are two plug ins but each speaker port has...


Your subwoofer probably has both high-power inputs and "normal"low inputs. The first are for receivers, which don't have link-level output for sub, so they are able to take already amplified signal as input.
You need to use link-level input of your sub and connect it to subwoofer-output of your receiver. The output is marked as OUTPUT - Subwoofer and is black-color RCA plug (don't confuse with subwoofer INPUT under MULTI CH INPUT).
Receiver has only mono output for subwoofer. If your sub has stereo input (white/red RCA plugs), connect just the left channel to the receiver, it will still work.
Don't connect anything to the speaker output on the sub, you don't need that.

Need a hookup diagram for yamaha rx-v461 plus yamaha yst-sw216 please


Hi,
Here you can find the manual for your subwoofer. Looking at its back side, it has 2 RCA plug input for stereo. Receiver has just mono sub output, but as low frequencies are not easily locatable, mono is perfectly OK.
Just connect receiver SUB-OUTPUT with RCA cable to your subwoofer's RCA LEFT input. Then adjust volume to match rest of your speakers.

Different sound levels dvd and cable hdtv yamaha htr-6130


Well, first of all, the method you are using is the lowest quality. You should upgrade to a toslink(digital optical cable) or a digital RCA cable. The toslink is the best all around. But it is normal for some devices to have higher sound output than others.

Problem hooking up my Yamaha RX-V461 to my PS3


When you connect the optical cable to the ps3 you must change the output to optical on the ps3. To do this, startup your ps3 then go to settings then audio output settings and change it to Digital Out (Optical).
