RX-V902 TV/DBS source coming through all other sources...
On my lovely Yamaha RX-V902 receiver, my cable box is the input for TV/DBS section. When I select Tuner or VCR or any other input source that is connected to the receiver, the TV/DBS audio comes through the speakers too. Only by turning off the cable box will I get the intended source output. Anyone heard of this or have this same issue? I think I'll need to have it serviced but was kind of wondering how extensive a repair it might be. Anyone?

This could be as simple as having input and output line audio reversed. Please check all sources for proper connection. You can do this at the receiver too, but not both receiver and sources.....accordianman

Connect the audio outputs jacks from the TV to any available audio input terminals on the Yamaha receiver, other than the phono input. You can use any analog audio Left (White) and Right (Red) inputs on your receiver such as the DTV/CBL, SAT or VCR input. There are no special settings needed on the receiver, other than selecting the correct input. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on the TV. Consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output audio to an external source. If youre TV has a digital output (Optical or Coaxial) it can also be run to one of the digital inputs on the Yamaha receiver, such as DTV/CBL or DVD. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on your TV. As always, consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output digital audio to an external source.
NOTE: When the source of the audio signal is coming from an HDMI device connected to the TV, the TV may not output in 5.1 surround sound.
Is input source set correctly? These recievers need to be set up correctly when installing. Set input to component, hdmi, whatever you are using...check connections at back check that audio is coming from Cable ot sat box,,,by inserting in into CD line in or a similar input..
If you're expecting multichannel sound FROM THE TV instead of from the source you're watching, it's not gonna happen. TV's are notoriously poor sound sources. This one is no different.
Multichannel TV-related audio is best found at its source - cable / sat / dvd / bd....
I run video-related audio from my video sources directly to my TV and their audio directly to my receiver. Specialization yields best results.
I'd recommend skipping the Receiver for video, too, as it adds a lot of opportunity for HDMI-related incompatibilities and sound syncing problems. The more interconnects in the path, the more distorted it will become and the more opportunities for problems. Plus you can bypass the receiver and listen to lo-fi programming like news and weather through the TV's speakers if you like. Save a buck on electricity.
Just curious, which HDMI on the receiver is connected to your TV? Input or Output?
This note is on Page 11 of the manual:
Audio signals input at the HDMI jack are not output from any speaker terminals but output from the connected video monitor. To enjoy the sound from speakers connected to this unit,
-- make an analog or digital connection besides the HDMI connection (see page 13).
-- mute the volume on the connected video monitor
"Check SP cable." -- The unit is perceiving a short circuit. Are your speaker impedances sufficiently high? Disconnect the Front Right speaker and try raising the volume again. The speaker may be blown or the cable shorting.
You have to configure your DTV input to use optical audio instead of analog dtv audio (red/white plugs). Input assignment should be described in the manual. Come back to me if you have still problems with 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).
For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.
First - make sure it is not a defective cable by reversing the leads/colors on the inputs if problem then goes to the right channel then you know it is a bad cable/RCA, etc., connector. I would try that first.
