Question about Yamaha R-V1105 Receiver

Open Question

Yamaha R-V1105 no subwoofer output in some configurations.

I have been using this reciever for home theater use for years and just used my computer for listening to music so never really used it to just play music. I now have the computer and home theater setup in different rooms so hooked up my CD changer (Sony CDP-CX455) to listen to music in the main room.

So the problem is that with the CD player or with a iPod hooked to Tape/MD connection there is no output to the subwoofer. This is even with music that is guaranteed to trigger the subwoofer. I also found a weird quirk when I first hooked up the system in the main room. I couldn't find my optical out for the DVD player. So until I found it I just hooked up the orange digital out RCA looking cable from the DVD player. I made no changes to the R-V1105 at all. Using the orange digital out/RCA cable it would not go into Dolby Digital mode but instead stays in Dolby Pro Logic mode and also did not trigger the subwoofer. All I have to do is swap the cable and it instantly "see's" Dolby Digital and goes full 5.1 with the subwoofer. No changes made to the R-V1105 at all, just swapping a cable.

So that is the issue, I know the reciever is now ancient but I am not in a position to upgrade it at this time and would really like to listen to CD's and my iPod and have the subwoofer actually work. It really destroys the sound to not have that bottom end response in many different types of music. It's obviously capable of driving the subwoofer as it does it beautifully with DVD's as long as the optical cable is hooked up. Maybe a setting buried within all the menus? I have searched the manual and didn't find anything. I also tried hooking the CD player up with an optical cable off the DVD player real fast just to see if it made a difference and it did not. No subwoofer for the CD player even with an optical connection. Obviously this isn't even an option for the iPod run through RCA cables to the Tape/MD connection.

Thank you for any help or advice you can give me.

    I have a similar situation. I have a Yamaha 795a and never really used it to listen to 'analog' sound. So it always worked fine with a digital input (ie DVD). Now when I play CDs in DVD player I dont get any sound from the sub. All other 5 speakers play sound, just a problem with the subwoofer. Any ideas?? Thanks

SOURCE: Problem with Dolby Digital mode

Hi Whitesox, thanks for the suggestions! I finally got to the bottom of the problem, and it turned out to be the new Toshiba DVD player I recently purchased (model SD5000). I never had to make any adjustments to a DVD player before to make it play dolby digital signals, but this new Toshiba essentially comes with Dolby Digital diabled as its default setting. You have to go into its setup menu and switch it's digital audio mode from PCM to Bitstream. What's strange is that even with the default settings on the Toshiba it would play in DTS mode correctly.

SOURCE: No Soound on Subwoofer from Yamaha RX-V363

I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!

Yamaha HTR-5990 Audio no longer works


Sorry Michael, you have a problem in the audio amp section of the receiver and unless you know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics, you will need to have this unit serviced by a pro. Good Luck

Is a yamaha rx-v465 supposed to recieved both


What connection do you use?
This receiver supports both video and audio over HDMI. It has also other video inputs, but it doesn't have any video processing.
So if you connect your equipment for example to component video in, its video output will be present only on component video out (NOT on the HDMI output nor s-video output).

I plugged in my cable HDMI into my RX - V365 Yamaha reciever. and HDMI into my TV. I get video, but cannot get my attached (to reciever) speakers to play. Help


RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio. You need to connect the cable box also via spdif cable for audio to work. Look at the box if it uses optical spdif or coax spdif. If optical, you see that optical input on receiver is named DTV/CATV, so use also DTV HDMI for video. Coax spdif is named DVD, so in this case you will need to use DVD HDMI input.
Also you need to configure the inputs accordingly.

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA


The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!
