First let me say that you have stated your problem very well. I completely understand the issue you are having.
I have been repairing a/v systems since they started selling them.
By your description of your problem, it is obvious that you have isolated the problem to the Yamaha.
Despite what Yamaha tech support say's, it is their problem.
I have been dealing with tech support for a lot of different manufacters for many, many years. I repair under warranty over 20 different brands, but not Yamaha. I have repaired plenty of Yamaha receivers but none with this particular problem.
It is not uncommon to find tech support people who don't know as much as they should about their own product.
Since I don't have the instruction manual or a service manual forthis model I can only be of minimal help.
What you can do, if you have your instruction manual, check it over closely for this subject on how to change the settings for the HDMI. If you can not find this particular issue, it is possible that the Yamaha doesn't support 1080i. I would be surprised if it did not, but stranger things have happened.
Another thing you can do if you can still not find an answer to this problem is to take it in to an authorized Yamaha service center.
If you have recently purchased this Yamaha, it will be under warranty. They get at least 1 year. Tell them the problem you are having and if they do not know how to solve it right there on the spot, or give you an answer that satisfies you, leave it with them
to have it fixed. If they are an authorized service center they will have to fix it or get it replaced for you if it is under warranty. It may need a firmware upgrade to the digital board. If that is the problem, then they can do it for you.
Let me know if you need any more help.
Sorry I wasn't more help, but an authorized service center may be your best bet.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

SOURCE: 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.
