Question about Yamaha RX-V473 5.1 Channel Network AV Receiver
I have a new RX-V473. I want to listen to my local FM station on the Internet for clarity. I have a IMac, a Apple TV, and a Smart RG router Model SR300N supplied by my cable provider. The computor and router are in another room but I have already run a Cat5 cable from router to net the network jack on the reciever. That did not work. What is the best way to connect my reciever to the Internet.

The HDMI on the RX-v363 does not pass the audio. You need to either connect an optical or digital cable from your audio source. If it is a cable box or DVD player there should be audio outputs in addition to HDMI

SOURCE: I have a Yamaha Rx-v363
this sounds strange, but is true. you need to run your digital audio optical cable from your tv to your receiver (after, of course, connecting tv/receiver via hdmi). so, hdmi from blue ray to rec - hdmi from rec to tv - then optical from tv back to rec. it's round about, but that is how yamaha says (and the only way it works) to do it.

Since you're using a standard mini jack to double RCA cable, it's safe to assume you'll be sending line level signal into your reciever, so i think any of these audio inputs will do: AUX, CD, DVD, MD, TV.
Also try the inputs on the front of the unit (i guess they are meant to be used with a video camera or similar but they are designed for line level signals so it should be ok if you decide to use them).
Anyway, keep the source signal at a moderate
level when you test any of the inputs and raise it to a suitable level after you're sure it is coming thru well.
Normally, the AUX input is suitable for any AUXilliary signal source that puts out a line level signal, but if it is already being used, you may use other free inputs.
If you use TAPE or PHONO inputs, you should keep the signal level from the source a bit lower since these inputs will amplify the signal a bit more (especially the phono input which works with signals that are lower in level than the line signal).
I hope this helps.

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.
