Yamaha HTR-6230 receiver set up w/HDMI no sound

I have a Yamaha HTR-6230 receiver set up w/HDMI from blu-ray player and DVR. The volume only comes from the TV (samsung) when in DVD or DVR mode. Video is great, but the audio is from TV only. When in the tuner mode, FM radio plays great through the surround, but when I go back to the DVD it only plays from the TV speakers. TV is also hooked to the reciever w/HDMI. Any solutions out there?

    I've done the basic setup a few times, but havent seen anything which offers to change that setting

    update...this receiver does not play surround sound audio through the HDMI cable, you have to add another audio cable to the unit to get the surround sound to work. It was a great deal on the unit so I'm not too disappointed and it still sounds really good through an optical cable. My biggest disapointment is how difficult it was to find out the problem. I did'nt find any info on the internet or FAQ's from Yamaha about the issue, it was when I scoured over the manual again I found a note in the HDMI section stating that the other cable would be required. It had an analog type input for the DVD and unfortunately the DVD did not have this as an option for output, so I had to run the DVD audio to the DTR/Cable input on the receiver so I could use the optical set-up. It works fine and w/a all-in-one remote its no big deal. If I had to do it again though, I'd upgrade to a unit which runs the audio through the HDMI. Oh well, live and learn!

BD and DVR hooked up to the receiver and from the receiver to the TV right? If yes: Your receiver set to pass sound trough to the TV, if you want sound from the home theater setting has to be changed.

    I'm sorry, you are right. I did not realize that Yamaha has such a unit which has no audio over HDMI.

I also had this problem. you need to call Yamaha Tech Support (in your country) and explain to the consultant that you need to set up your receiver to decode the Audio from the HDMI input (so it will play the sound from the HDMI cable). Yamaha Australia said that this function is not described in the book and also said its a stupid mistake on Yamaha's Manual. So just give them a call and they will fix it for you. It WORKED for me :D

Satavlad is correct in his update, it's just ridiculous the Yamaha would sell receivers that cannot output sound coming in over HDMI. but it's true...

I figured out this problem a few months ago. i don't even know if you'll ever check this again. but,

the reason why it doesn't play is sound is bc... your dvd and dvr mode is probably hooked up via hdmi... if you check your box it doesn't have the audio part of hdmi... its just video.

#2 i had a hell of a time figuring out why didnt it work just pluggin in certain things.

bc hdmi only works via the optical cables. but you'd have to plug it in via just the component cables.

funny part is most systems plugs when hdmi is plugged in the optical plugs are turned off. (go figure)

#3 remember w/ this system... things plugged into components, only works via component output. composite w/ composite and the optical only works w/ optical... and so forth.

so that means that you can't connect your component dvd player to your reciever and have it output to your HDMI tv... you would need to plug component plugs from the reciever to tv.

I found the same issues and the same little notation in the manual. I have a cable box hooked up to the DTR/Cable inputes, (HDMI and Optical Audio) to recieve the sound and Picture. For the DVD audio I again used the the only other optical audio input and the went into the settings and changed it's inpute to DVD, that along with the only other HDMI filled got me sound and picture for both of my componets.
I aslo find that the Yamaha HTR-6230 has substandard surround sound. I will be replacing this.

How to hook up to panasonic tv & sony dvd player


DVD output (HDMI) to HDMI input on TV will transfer both audio and video from DVD to TV. Audio output on TV to unused Input on Yamaha receiver (Aux, CD, etc.). This hookup will allow DVD and TV channels audio playback through your Yamaha receiver. Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.

As per HTR-6230 specifications (http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/productdetail.html?CNTID=5028494&CTID=5000400&ATRID=1020&DETYP=ATTRIBUTE) the HDMI function is only "audio-passthru", which means your receiver is not able to get the audio from HDMI cable, it can only pass it forward to TV. You would need a receiver with "HDMI switch" to be able to listen to audio via HDMI cable. You can find such receiver by looking if it supports TrueHD audio (which can be transferred ONLY via HDMI cable).

With your current receiver, you can connect it to the Blue-ray player via Optical SPDIF cable. I have checked the specs and both receiver and BD player supports optical connection.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

No sound


I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.

No sound coming out of back speakers when watching DVDs


Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.

Hope this helps.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
