Question about Yamaha RX-V661 Receiver
This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

The problem might be caused by two major circumstances. 1)Touching wires 2)Overheating. I suggest you unplug all wires connected to the amp then turn on the amp. If it gets turned on then we know that the problem is that you have touching wires. If there is a short circuit somewhere, get rid of it. The ventilation is another important issue that you have to pay attention. It simply causes overheating.

Ok... I'm still new to the HDMI input. But I'm going to take a shot in the dark on this one.
Please don't rate me poorly for this, by the way. I'd rather you don't rate me at all as I am not proposing a solution.
This is a guess. I'll be honest about that. So here goes... :P
I read through the manual a bit. (Click HERE for the manual.) I started thinking to myself about your situation...and noticed that you seem to be focused primarily on the receiver itself.
What about the Satellite receiver? Have you checked it to see if you might have to manually switch the audio output to your HDMI output? I know you have video and all, but many devices won't assume that you're switching BOTH the video AND the audio outputs. Sometimes you have to manually switch one or the other, depending on how you're connected.
I would check the SAT receiver to see if you have to switch the audio output to go out from the HDMI output on the SAT receiver.
It has always been my experience that when the speaker icons flash on the audio receiver and you're sending a digital signal to it, the receiver is in fact NOT receiving a signal...
...which obviously means that one is not being sent to it.
Please let me know what you come up with. Again, this was just a shot in the dark. But I am curious either way. :)
Let me know!

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:
Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.
You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!
This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

You need to Bypass the Receivers HDMI port and use HDMI directly to the TV. Your receiver has HDMI version 1.2a and is not 100% effective. Use the optical out from your Xbox to the receiver and all will be well. 1.2a has issues in every receiver on the market. Supposedly 1.3b on the "new" receivers has fixed this issue. Hope this helps
