Yamaha RX V861 - Phillips DVD - No sound via digital coax

Recently purchased a new receiver, RX861 and tried connecting to a low end Phillips DVD that supports DIVX etc... I have the DVD connected to the receiver via component video and tried connecting the digital coax from the DVD to the receiver, but there is no sound. The picture is fine, so I know the component works. I also tried disconnecting the digital coax and using the RCA's into the receiver and no sound as well.

I have checked that the I/O settings on the receiver for output 5 which is the digital coax output are configured for DVD as well as the Digital Audio output on the DVD setup is turned on. There are tow choices PCM or All and neither solve the no sound problem.

Any ideas?

Does your TV support "Line In" or "Aux" or "External"? if so plug your "Low end" DVD directly into the back of the tv and verify that you Can get audio. Quite a few DVD players do have a mute feature. Be sure this is turned "off"...accordianman

How to connect the PS3 to RX-V365 to get best sound qualitity in films. I have sony BRAVIO LCD wiht PS3 and I recently bought RX-V365 Yamaha home theater system. Please advice on connecting all three to...


You can connect PS3 video via HDMI to receiver and from receiver via HDMI to TV. But RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio, so you have to connect audio separately via SPDIF digital cable. I think PS3 uses optical SPDIF, so you will need optical cable. If you can't find cheaps optical cables in your shop, you can try byuing from ebay ($1-5 max.)

I just bought a yamaha rx-v365 receiver and hooked to my cable box via a hdmi and optic audio cable. this is working fine but i cant get a dvd player to work via a component and coax audio cable. neither...


Make sure that the DVD player is connected into the correct inputs on the receiver and that the receiver also has the correct input selected to play. If your TV also has component video inputs it is best to connect the player directly to the TV. Otherwise, make sure you have the TV connected to the receiver via component video out.

I plugged in my cable HDMI into my RX - V365 Yamaha reciever. and HDMI into my TV. I get video, but cannot get my attached (to reciever) speakers to play. Help


RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio. You need to connect the cable box also via spdif cable for audio to work. Look at the box if it uses optical spdif or coax spdif. If optical, you see that optical input on receiver is named DTV/CATV, so use also DTV HDMI for video. Coax spdif is named DVD, so in this case you will need to use DVD HDMI input.
Also you need to configure the inputs accordingly.

My Yamaha receiver stops working when using DVD plsyer


Is your BluRay connected via HDMI? and if so, are any other sources connected the same? if not, just for arguments sake, try hooling up the BluRay via component and digital coaxial or optical. Yamaha as well as all other AV receiver MFG have had big issues with HDMI processing. HDMI has been battling with the recording industry over HDCP and copyright issues on recording via HDMI. So, that's why HDMI has been so flaky. It's been thru versions 1.1,1.1a,1.2,1.2a,1.3a, and now 1.3b, which seems to work so far.... Anyway, sorry to stray off topic, however, HDMI has been a blessing and a curse for both professionals and consumers alike and has caused multiple strange issues with all products that use the technology. Hope this helps. Post a comment if you need further help. I've got lots of contacts for crazy issues!

No zone 2 sound coming from yamaha amp rx-v861


Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,
