Just purchased the Yamaha receiver. Connected Playstation 3 and DirectTV HDTV Receiver through the HDMI outlets in the Yamaha receiver. Then by HDMI, connected the receiver to our Sharp Acquos 32" Flat LCD Panel (720p). Everything worked for a day, they we started seeing a "white noise" flickering while using the Playstation 3 component. We double check the connections, and reset the playstation 3 settings to factory default, the issue was still present. When we switched the Yamaha receiver input to our satellite, the image on the tv was bouncing. I need help.
Here is a list of all the products in our Home Theater System:
-Yamaha RX-V661 7.1 (Connect to TV by "Monster HDMI-8 Ult3, 8ft") -DirectTV HDTV Receiver (Connect to Yamaha by "Factory Supplied HDMI Cable) -Playstation 3 40GB (Connect to Yamaha by "Rocket Fish HDMI" -Sharp Acquos 32" Flat LCD Panel (720p)

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.
Things You'll Need:
* 2 sets component AV cables * HDMI cable
Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.
Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.
Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.
Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.
Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.
Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.
This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.
From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.
So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.
Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.
On most modern receivers you must select which signal type you want it to process.
for example on my Denon, I have to go into the on screen menu and select the input I want ie: video 1.Then tell it which signal I want it to use ie: s-video, component or HDMI input for video and then which input corresponds to the audio signal for that component ie: analog, digital, optical or hdmi.
Its complicated and a pain in the ****
Hopefully that helps call Yamaha they will usually walk you through the process while on the phone.
Receiver just receives the audio data over optical digital cable and processes it. It is up to the DirectTV box what will send to receiver (if stereo or some Dolby Digital for example). You can check the format (decoder, no. of channels, bitrate) of current audio signal after pressing Option button on remote and choosing Signal Info menu.
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.
