Yamaha rx v1800 receiever

Hi There,
I have just purchased this receiever and i am a bit technically challeneged. I have a 42 inch Panasonic plasma with one HDMI, a panasonic dvd recorder with one HDMI and a Playstation 3 console. I want to get the best sound and picture possible and am not to sure on how to connect it all up.

Opbviously the HDMI options are the best, but how do i do it. The speakers are all hooked up and test came out perfect. I;m just not sure where to go from here.

Any help would be of great use.

Regards

Dave

I think PS3 should be connected to HDMI IN1 (BD/HD DVD) because it is a blue-ray player. This is how I connected mine.

Dave all you need is an electronics accessory that you can buy in electronics shop near to your place.These is very ordinary and common accessory.The RCA Y jack that's form Y with one input and two output even through the output of RCA Y jack you can input another Y jack that's called branching.This is safe,this accessory are design to encounter like your problem,want to hooked all the unit in one input,with no hustle where you going to in.No dagerous of being shorted or overloaded,this tested already.The only thing you do is to turn off the power or stand by the power of the unit.Turn only what you are going to use,like playstation and yamaha reciever only,of course the Plasma tv.If you like the DVD player,turn off the playstation,so you can watch the movie from DVD and hear the sound comes out from YAMAHA recievers. If it's happen accidentally all the unit simultaneously open or power on ,theres nothing to wory about ,only you can hear is rumbling sound and see rumbling movies does cannot damage the unit .that's all i can help to you Dave..txt me whatever the result.

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

Green vertical line down the screen!


Hello,

Most likely the failure of the Screen.

If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.

If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....
