Question about Yamaha RX-V1800

1 Answer

Yamaha rx-v1800 I have a yamaha rx-v1800 with a Rogers PVR connected using the component input. The output is HDMI to the TV The picture freezes intermitantly. I also have a PS# and Apple TV connected using the HDMI inputs and HDMI to the TV. I don't experience any problems ith the picture freezing on those. The PCR, PS3 and Apple TV all share the same HDMI output to the TVC. Any ideas why this is happening only with the PVR? Thanks

I think the Yamaha will not upconvert anything below 480p through the HDMI output. You'll need to use the component out to the TV.

WHERE IS THE AUDIO OUTPUT WHEN USING COMPONENT CABLES ON A YAMAHA RX-V571 RECEIVER


How are you hooking up the receiver to the dvd recorder? Component connections are only going to carry video. For audio, you would have to connect the cd-r output rca jacks to the recorder audio inputs.

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.

With Cable connected to the rx-465 input, I'm not getting HDMI output to a Samsung plasma TV. With DVD HDMI input I get HDMI output to the TV. Any suggestions on what I'm missing. Thanks, Greg


is the cable connection hdmi? is the unit capable of upconversion to hdmi, if you use a component connection? probably not. if it is capable of upconversion, check your input menu settings

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers


Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

No auto setup display on TV


For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.

Cable box HDMI connection probelm


This is from the Yamaha user guide:
The analog component video signals (with 480i (NTSC)/576i
(PAL) of resolution only) are converted to the S-video or
composite video signals and output at the VIDEO or S VIDEO
MONITOR OUT jacks.
The question is what kind of signals you get from your HD cable box.

HI dave, Rob here...I just looked at the back of the 1800, and you are in luck.

There are 3 HDMI inputs and 1 output to your plasma.

Step 1 hook up the plasma to the bottom HDMI port marked --------OUT-------.

Step 2 Plug the DVD recorder into input 4 ( marked as ---IN 4----)


Step 3 PLug your playstation into the one marked ---IN 2 ---

Now, yamaha's are VERY flexable......You will need to go into your manual and you can actually change the name that appears on the front panel display when you select something. So instead of IN 2 being the DVD input for a DVD player, you have your playstation hooked up to it, so you can easily edit , using the remote, the receiver so that instead of it saying DVD, the receiver will display "Playstation".

That is only one example of what the 1800 will do.

As the owner of an older RX-V2400, you REALLY REALLY need to spend some time and go into your owners manual.

The Yamaha is unbelievably customizeable and you can make it do pretty much whatever you want.

Shout me back if you have any more questions, and I will do my best to answer you, but its best to go through your owners manual.

Good luck and have fun.....Rob
