Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver

Strange Flicker with HDMI components

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)

    Thanks so much for the advice. I reset the receiver - problem continued. Unplugged all the cables and replugged - problem continued. I took it a step further with testing each component. The PS3 continued to have the white noise flicker and blackouts when connected directly to the tv - It started getting worse. I connected the satellite back through the receiver to the tv - The picture was shacky for a couple seconds then stopped. Tried connecting the PS3 to the TV with component cables - it did not even show up. Everything worked perfectly before the receiver - could it have done something to the components connected to it?

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.

Instructions

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.

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

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 have a Yamaha HTR-5440 receiver and I want to connect it to my Directtv Plus HD DVR satilite receiver what do I need


If your yamaha receiver has Hdmi upconversion and HDMI pass through you should only need an HDMI cable. One from the directv receiver to the Yamaha Receiver and another from the yamaha receiver to the tv. If it does not have HDMI then you'll need component video cables and 1 optical cable.

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!

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
