Will do so.

Were you able to find out anything about getting around the gui? or do are we stuck with it for now?
Have you tried installing optical cable straight to the tv and the set?

Just trying to do some process of elimination here lol.

nope, i haven't... i haven't got one set up here... i bought a couple of them when newegg was blowing them out, figuring i'd figure out a use for them...

i've been playing off and on with the one that i gave a buddy of mine to try and figure out a way around the gui... no dice so far...

like i said, if we could somehow lay our hands on the ir codes, i could figure out a workaround... but darned if i can find them anywhere... and i haven't been patient enough (yet) to run through all the generic yamaha codes to see if any of them match up...

Spoke to yamaha tech rep and he has confirmed my worst fear.

EVERYTHING, I mean everything has to go through GUI in order to receive any sound from external speakers... wth yamaha...
I don't know what IR code is but I'm googling it now to see what you mean.

well, darnit, that sucks...

"ir codes" = "infrared remote codes"...

i understand "why" yamaha did it this way, the unit is designed to be an "all in one, simple control center"... so it makes sense that it would work this way, the design intent was to keep it as simple as possible... which it does...

but what i was hoping is that there'd be commands that would allow an "advanced user with a universal remote and patience" to code around it...

Sorry guys to resurrect the thread but I think it's better than starting a new one.

Here's my question:

Can I "easily" (no hassle, no need for much technical experience) output Cable TV sound to the speakers connected to the NeoHD 500 (YMC-500BL) via Optical Out?

Our LG 47LK520 has an "Optical Out" at the back.

So.. is this possible or easy to accomplish?:

HDTV Optical Out > YMC-500BL Optical In > Speakers connected to the YMC-500BL = Sound from Cable TV?

The YMC-500BL has an Optical In correct?

BTW, we don't have a Cable Box.
