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.

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

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.

Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

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.

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.
