I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:
Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.
You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!
This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

SOURCE: how to perform a master reset
Unhook all HDMI connections unplug the yamaha and your tv from the wall outlet then try again. Most cases a copy protection kicked in or the hdmi had a error on the port, Worse case is hdmi controller board failure in ether the TV or the yamaha.
thanks and do be considerate and leave postive feedback and ratings for those that have helped you today, Thanks
