I have a Yamaha RX-V465 and was wondering if there is a way to listen to an audio source (i.e. iPod) while watching a video source. I think, because I have the video source hooked up via HDMI that I can't do it. Is that true? If not, how do I do it? Thanks!

Not sure about this model. But many AVR's if you eliminate or do not assgn any video to an input. When you switch to it, the video will stay with the provious input selection, while audio is then taken by the new input selection.

Kludgety, but I have found in general for it to work with some patience and messing around with it enough.

On my V663 if you switch imputs directly from the video to an audio only input (i.e. tuner, cd, md) it will leave the video playing. You would have to do this from the remote since the knob on the receiver might have to cycle through other imputs to get where you want to go.
