20 Most Recent Yamaha RX-V663 Receiver - Page 7 Questions & Answers

do you have sufficient space around the unit? If it is in an enclosed space, has other components on top, etc, you may be overheating the receiver. Once it gets too hot it can potentially cause the issues you mention above.

If you have other components on top, try moving them to another shelf or below the receiver, and if you have a door on an entertainment center, leave the door open to help with air flow.

Bad DSP chip. The only other possibility is if you have the "Direct" on. On the front of the receiver it's a small button. Also make sure your "Speaker Select" A/B is "on" You will see it on the display, it's also a small button on the front of the receiver. If all this is correct and you still have no audio, it's a bad DSP chip. Not worth repair, it's 400-500 repair. Not very common in a Yamaha RX-V series, but I have seen it. I'm a Yamaha Dealer. If you need further help, post a comment and I will be glad to help you further.

Get into the receiver "Main Menu" toggle to "options" or "zone control", right click and you should be able to switch it from "Fixed" to "Variable" If you still have an issue, post a comment and I will help you further. Hope this helps. (chances are it lost power or took a spike, and reset zone 2)

It's a "Bug" in the firmware version 1.2 which is what your receiver uses. Be thankful you have audio and video 100% (even with a delay) The current version 1.3b is functional 100% of the time (so far) The HDMI issue you have can be fixed by a service center authorized by Yamaha under warranty ( if it still is) and they will upgrade the board and software to work with all the current versions. Out of warranty; it's a pricey ordeal. It's not Yamaha's fault or that of any other manufacturer which provides HDMI switching. It's the ongoing battle between the recording industry, and the consumer demand for "choice" It's a "Copyright" issue... Anyway, if it's still under warranty you can send it out free of charge and get it fixed. Otherwise, run your cable directly to the TV with HDMI and use digital coaxial for audio to your receiver. If you need more info, google "HDMI forums" and you can get the whole scoop from all sides involved. Hope this helps

make sure the dish IRD is set to transmit video and audio through HDMI, also look for an autodetect function on the input of your reciever

Here is a link to the manual. Now what connection are you trying to use for your HD box. Basically you will want to use any input, then you use the monitor out to go to your tv. You can refer to page 15 of the manual.Ifyou have any other questions please let me know.
Thank you,

Your receiver has HDMI version 1.2a and it has bugs/hardware issues. You have two choices. If your receiver is still under warranty, send it out to an authorized service center and they will fix it and upgrade the software and hardware for free to version 1.3a. If not, run HDMI directly to TV from source and optical or digital coaxial to you receiver. Hope this helps

This amp is prone to blowing video boards if connection are made while power is still on . take video cable from component like dvd etc and plug directly to tv. If picture take same cable and connect to cable (monitor out to tv), in other words bypass the amp to see if cables are working.make sure earth is connecting to earth and centre to centre. if you get picture connect to amp. make sure power is off. Select dvd and make sure dvd is connected to dvd video input. if no picture connect on dss in put and switch to dss just to check if other video inputs is working. check also in menu that video setting is according to desired video input like video or component1 etc

That sounds like you blew the fuses inside the receiver. Take the cover off and check them. Typically thats the problem and if I'm not mistaken they are AGC-5 Buss fuses available at your local hardware store.

If you are using HDMI, switch to either "Digital Coaxial" or "Optical". Do you have DSS, Cable, or FIOS? Post a comment and I can help some more.

Why don't you set it Zone 2 then you could listen to the radio outside and still watch tv inside. You can turn it on and off just like a and b speakers.
