Question about Yamaha HTR-6090 Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Yamaha HTR 6090 that I have had for s couple of years now. All of my video and audio sources go through this. My problem is related to the sound portion of the signal from my cable box. Until this evening, the only thing that I had ever experienced that might be considered a problem was the loss of the audio when turning the equipment on. I could always previously et the audio to come online by just changing channels on the cable box. This evening the audio portion of the signal from the cable box won't come on at all. The video portion of the signal comes through just fine. Audio works just fine from other audio sources. I have run through all of the cable connections to make sure that something wasn't wrong there. I'm fresh out of good ideas, so I'm hoping for a bit of help. Thanks, Mark

Sounds like a Cable Box issue to me. Call them up. Or check its settings for audio. Try analog audio to see if it has that.

How to connect bose 901 to yamaha htr -6090

Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 35 watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

My htr-6090 wont let my dock be on zone2

Zone 2 will only work with an analog signal (RCA) If you use a stereo mini to rca adapter from the ipods headset jack and plug it into the VAux on the front of the receiver it will work. Downside to this is the audio is "dual controlled" Volume from the iPod and Volume from the Receiver. Set the volume no further than 70-75% on the iPod then adjust to taste with Zone 2. Hope this helps

what audio cable type are you using, if its digital, you might have to assign that digital audio input with the video signal? go back over your cabling, and make sure the audio is not going to the wrong input and also check that SP/DIF (coxial or toslink) is enabled on the setup menu for the blue ray player and satilite, they normally disable it by default to save a little bit of power, also on a yamaha receveir should have a indication light that lights when a signal/decoding is in action, refer to your documention and trouble shooting section of the manual, hope this helps

Have no sound from my tv panasonic th-58px600u which is hook up to my receiver with an hdmi and fiber optic for the video out into my receiver yamaha 6090

Do you expect TV audio to go TOWARD the receiver in this setup? The HDMI is to get video and audio TO the TV. The BEST TV-related audio will come from the device supplying it, not the TV.

Try this. Take the digital audio from the cable / satellite box into the receiver. Ditto for games or whatever.

After all, what else enters the TV that isn't already connected directly to the receiver?

There is a product called hd EZ lock, which acts as a strain relief and HDMI Cable lock. There is a very good chance it will help with your issues. It eliminates stress by supporting your cable from the chassis, and it secures your HDMI Cable, eliminating intermittent signal dropouts.

It is universal and works with most HDMI Cables and HDMI Components on the market, and typically installs in a couple of minutes.

Remap digital audio on Yamaha HTR-6130

Actually I found in the sound menu on the receiver that there is an input source setting changer for the 3 digital audio inputs. Also you can change the names of the other inputs to match your components needs.

Good work Yamaha.

No component video output

Hope this helps

The Yamaha HTR-6030 offers two types of video monitor output: Component and Composite. You may need to connect both types to your television as the HTR-6030 does not have composite to component video conversion. In other words, to view your VCR on your TV, you need to use the composite video monitor connection. However, for a DVD player or other source that has component video connections, use the component video monitor output to your TV. If your TV has both types, you simply switch between the two with your TV remote to access the proper video monitor output signal from the HTR-6030.

I would check your Outlets to make sure you have Clean Power and are Properly Grounded. That's usually an Electrical Problem, Not the Equipment. Although Sometimes you get Bad Apple!
