Question about Yamaha RX-V663 Receiver

1 Answer

My Yamaha RXV663 does not produce sound from the cable box. In fact, when I touch the HDMI cable between the cable box and the receiver, I feel a slight voltage tingling my hand. I realize that can't be good and it seems as if somehow the recevier is not grounded. When using the other HDMI outputs, the cords are fine. It's the specific HDMI cord from the cable box to the receiver. The HDMI cable is fine, just seems as if somehow the receiver isn't grounded.

Are you plugging this in to the correct plug on your receive and from your cable box? It should be HDMI OUT on your cable box, and one of the HDMI Inputs on your receiver. Then there should be a main HDMI cable going in to your television from the main HDMI OUT on your receiver to the television HDMI In.
Also, make sure the receiver is plugged in. Not on, but plugged in, because that is your ground. If all of these conditions are satisfied, there may be an issue with your cable box or the receiver.

I have a SA 8300HD cable box connected to Yamaha RX-V2500 receiver using Digital Audio Out from cable box to DVR/VCR2 on the receiver. It had been working for 2 years. Then this past weekend it stopped...


Pretty good problem description.

Make sure the DVR/VCR2 digital input is assigned to the Cable box.

When the DVR/VCR2 input is selected do you get any front panel indicators on the Yamaha that indicate a good digital bitstream?

Try swapping the cable box output to the working DVD In connection to isolate it to either the source or the receiver's ability to decode it.

Check the audio output settings for the Cable Box, too. Sometimes their outputs are adjustable. It may be muted or set too low.

Yamaha htr6180 with Motorola HD Cable Box Causes Picture to Blink


Can't be done. Your version of HDMI firmware and hardware in your receiver have "handshake" and "HDCP" incompatability issues that are too costly to fix. Your receiver has version 1.1 HDMI and the current version is 1.3b and soon to be 1.4. HDMI is not to blame though; it's RIAA, the recording industry that keeps changing audio and video codecs to protect against "copyright infringement" It's a ROYAL LOAD of !@#$%^&*. I am in the industry and have been avoiding HDMI at all cost! Too many issues! even with current BLURAY players they are using RJ45's on the back to allow software updates to keep in line with all the new codecs. If you want more info on HDMI and it's many issues; google "HDMI problems" and you can read forever!. Sorry for the bad news, but it is the fact. Hope this at least helps in understanding that there is nothing wrong with your product! it's the recording industry!

No sound from cable via V665 receiver


Can't pass HDMI thru this or any other receiver with version 1.1,1.2,1.2a,or 1.2b. HDMI is riddled with issues! it's not Yamaha, it's HDMI. The current version 1.3b is working "so far" If your receiver is still under warranty, Yamaha will update the software and hardware at N/C. If it's out of warranty, Run HDMI directly from source to TV and Audio to your receiver via optical or digital coaxial. For more info than you can process, google "HDMI forums" and there are over 73,000 posts/sites/etc. If you need further info, post a comment and I will be glad to help.

Intermittant Audio with Yamaha RX-V465 only from cable box


I have the same receiver... You can try pressing the Option button and choosing Signal Info to see what audio signal the receiver sees and if that changes over time. Maybe the cable box is not outputting according to specifications... TV can live with that, but receiver maybe can't.
You can also try to connect the cable box via SPDIF cable (optical or coax) to see if it helps or not.

Green screen via analog connections


check if your input settings in the RXV663 for the S-video and composite are correct. Both connections are about the worst possibilities for video signal. What might help is powering of all other equipment not used when using XBOX or VCR, really powering off, not leave in standby.

Does your TV support analogue inputs? Than use them for the XBOX and VCR to connect directly to your TV for video, sound can still be connected to the yamaha.

let me know if it works.

Setting up Cable with HDMI


Yes, the firmware on your hdtv box has an old firmware, I switched my old hdtv box with a newer one box and the problem was solved. It seems that it can't work if your hooking up with DVI to HDMI cable to your receiver to tv. Your hd box must have an HDMI out otherwise it causes problems. I also have rx-v661 and i finally hooked up everything HDMI to the receiver and then to the tv and it was having the problem you speak of. After I switched out the hd box for a newer one everthing worked fine.

Yamaha reciever rx-v363


Thats because if you look in the owner's manual, it declares the fact that it will only broadcast sound from hdmi to monitor not speakers. For sound out of speakers need to connect additional audio cable.
