Question about Yamaha RX-V3800 Receiver

1 Answer

No sound when using Panny plasma with RX-V3800

I cannot get sound to play through my 7.1 speaker system and RX-V3800.

I have the cable plugged into the back of the AVR unit and 6' HDMI cable plugged from the TV to the "HDMI out" slot.

My Panny Blu-Ray player works fine over either TV speakers or 7.1 system.

Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the reply esmith.



    Yes, I only have one HDMI cable linking the plasma HDTV and the AVR.

    I would have thought that the coax cable hooked into the AVR would give the AVR the sound signals it needs to play over the 7.1 system.

    I have a splitter running the cable TV signal to both the TV and the AVR.



    Do you know if I could plug the TV into one of the other HDMI slots for 2-way signals?

    I thought the whole idea was to reduce cabling to one HDMI cable running up the wall to the TV.



    As you can guess, I'm struggling a bit with this. The manual is not that helpful. I followed it to the letter but still no sound in TV mode.



    I checked the AVSforum but can't find this specific problem.

Let me see if I understand. You have one HDMI cable linking your TV and AVR? This is only to send video and sound out to your TV from the AVR you will not be able to send sound back over this same cable. You'll have to use the TVs audio out and connect it to an input of the AVR. The "HDMI out" on the AVR is just that Out and not In. For more questions I'd recommend checking out the RX-V3800 RX-V1800 thread over on AVSforum.com

You need something like this:

Digital to Analogue 5.1 converter:

I have never used one of these before, but i have worked in the audio industry and if this device works as advertised it will suit your needs.

Speakers not playing


The problem can be the cable or speakers or RX-V463 or settings. Need to check one by one.
Set the RX-V on DTS or Dolby Digital
1) Check Cables - connect the 2 (surround) cables from RXV's Centre Out to Centre speaker. If the Centre speaker works, then cables are ok.
2) Check speakers - Connect each Surround speaker to RXV's Centre out. If it works Speakers are ok.
3) Check RXV - Set it on DTS or Dolby Digital
Connect RXV's surround out (one at a time) L and R to the Centre speaker. If there is no sound, the problem could be RXV's settings (I need to read the manual).

Hope this helps.

Yamaha Receiver RX-V3800 Rear Left surround click sound


It's possible it is some sort of interference pickup, but another possible I've come across a number of times on Yamahas is poor earth connections via the back panel.

All the circuit boards have earth connections on them and the screws holding them to the back panel form an earth bonding connection. Tighten all the screws on the back to eliminate this possibility. Costs nothing to try and may just solve it.

I have HDMI cable from TV to RX-V365. HDMI from DVD player to RX-V365. HDMI from DirectTV receiver to RX-V365. Speakers attached. I can watch the TV and the DVD player... but the sound is still coming...


the RX-V365 cannot process the audio from the HDMI input. You will also need to connect a seperate audio input (either coaxial or optical) into the relevant input in the rear of the RX-V365

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.

7.1 speaker setup: no sound coming from right front/surr speakers


Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.

Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.

I wouldn't hook anything up except what Yamaha recommends to the speaker output terminals. That's pretty much asking for trouble!
