Question about Yamaha HTR-6030 Receiver

1 Answer

Yamaha HTR-6030. Using two optical cables for cable tv and xbox/wdtv-live box. On some cable channels and also on my xbox, no sound will play if I use it "straight". If I use "simulated modes", the sound plays. However, on any movie or program that I play through the WDTV-LIVE box, "straight" function picks up whatever the sound is encoded in the file with no issues. (DTS, DOLBY 5.1, stereo, etc). Is there a solution? ~ Also, some of the "simulated modes" do not work on some channels (verizon FIOS: goal tv, all network channels, etc), only enhanced music 5ch or stereo 5ch makes it work.

Please don't panic and think that there is anything wrong with your Yamaha receiver. A lot of people are having this problem with set top box reception. Time lag / phase differences caused by satellite transmission can make your Receivers digital decoders go nuts !!!.The working principal is too complex to explain on this page. I have had clients call up and say on some channels only one speaker works in a 5.1 setup !!!!.You noticed DD and DTS signals are working fine.

Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

The simplest for the movie would be to connect the Optical digital audio out of the TV (above the VGA port) to the Optical Audio In on the receiver. You will need to get this cable from any store that sells TOSLink cables. The manual for the TV is available here: http://www.lg.com/uk/tv-audio-video/televisions/LG-led-tv-42LE5300.jsp . The manual for the receiver is available at the Yamaha support page if you are a registered Yamaha customer: http://download.yamaha.com/search/product/?category_id1=16445&&category_id2=16446&product_id=1060939 .

For the XBox, I'd suggest the same connection if you are using HDMI out on the XBox. If you are using component or composite video, route the audio cables to the receiver's RCA audio in.

I hope this helps.

Hi there,

If you only have sound from the front left and right speakers when it's set to STRAIGHT, it means the audio source is only 2 channel stereo. As the audio source is from Blu-Ray, the audio should be HD if you are using the correct type of audio cable.

I really need more information from you to give a definitive answer. If you are only using a RCA type audio cable (red/white plugs) from the Blu-Ray to the Yamaha receiver then you will only get left and right front channels on the STRAIGHT setting. This receiver does not have HDMI, so you really need to be using a digital optical audio cable to get true 5.1.

Please can you let me know how the BD player is connected to the Yamaha receiver if you need further assistance.

Thanks,
BElectric

It could have to do with the settings on each input device (xbox & DVR) -check their audio settings. I have a better solution for your problem though:
Since HDMI supports 7.1 ch of digital sound, I'd recommend using the optical inputs on your HTR-6130 that are made for 5.1 ch sound. I agree that you should be getting sound via HDMI, I was able to from my xbox to my 6130, but it gets cut down to 2 channel sound (good, but pales compared to true 5.1 ch sound). It believe it has to do with Dolby not being backward compatible going from 7.1 to 5.1. Anyhow, in order to get an optical-out on your xbox, you'll need connect with the a/v cables that came with the xbox, along with the HDMI cable. Depending on how old your xbox is, and which model (like an elite edition, etc), You may need to buy a special converter that will allow enough room for both an HDMI connection and the A/V connection. Trust me, I have an HTR-6130 with an xbox and a cable-provider issued box running through it. Optical is the way to go for this particular receiver since it only supports 5.1 ch sound. You can still use the HDMI ports on the receiver as a switch between your two devices, or you could choose to bypass it if you TV has more than one HDMI input port.

I have no TV box but do have cable, how do I hook up TV,VCR,DVD, and YAMAHA HTR 6030


For watching TV, your TV should have a monitor out. This will go to your CBL/Sat input on the receiver. If you have a newer TV, it will have an optical output,if you use that, you will have Dolby Digital surround when available, and digital stereo at all other times. For the VCR and DVD, if they are separate units, Run audio video from the VCR to the receiver to VCR 1, for the DVD, use Component video and optical or digital coaxial to the receiver. Then from the receiver run component video to the TV. If you need further help, post a comment and I will help you further. Hope this helps

Stereo Set up


The physical TV is at best a lo-fi 2-channel analog audio device. Think about it this way: Most high-end users use video monitors (no audio or speakers on board). So where does the TV-related audio come from....

It comes from the same place the TV would get it - cable, satellite, dvd, blu-ray, vcr...

So why run audio from any of those sources to the TV and back to the receiver (whose specialty is
multi-channel sound)?

I imagine your cable or satellite box has Digital and Analog Audio Outputs. The receiver needs a digital input for anything multi-channel. Select the highest-quality one that's compatible with your HTR and use it for the audio feed.

You have one coaxial and one optical digital input. I imagine your (unnamed) DVD player has one or both types and your cable box has one or both types. If you have one of each type you're golden. Run each to its compatible input on the HTR.

If they're both optical, you have to make a choice, but if they're both coaxial only you could get away with using an RCA Y-cable to bring them both in to the one input. Then for each to work you would have to make sure the other device is turned off.

The video capabilities of this unit are limited to Composite (single RCA cable). Run one from the DVD and one from the cable box Video Out to the conveniently labeled inputs that match them.

I have no idea what your TV/Monitor has for inputs. If possible run the absolute highest quality video [HDMI, Component (3 RCA cables) or Composite (single RCA cable)] to the TV's inputs along with an RCA pair from DVD and Cable Ananlog Audio Out to the corresponding Audio In's on the TV. This way you can watch and hear TV from its own speakers without needing the Yamaha fired up.

Hooking up multiple components to HTR 6030


Once you have installed all the cables to the system, you will need to go in to the Yamaha's system settings (see owner's manual) and assign the audio inputs accordingly. The DVD input will need to be set to the optical input # you have selected. Optical and digital coax are not preset in most cases. Once you get to the input selection assign the digital # for DVD and then exit out. You should begin to hear the audio immediately. If not you missed a step. I do this for a living and every unit has its own routine you need to learn.  Enjoy the system Rob

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.
