Can i connect my cable set top box to Yamaha HTR-7065 via component cable

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I just bought a new Yamaha HTR-7065. I have an apple TV, PS3, a PC and a Cisco Cable Set Top box in my setup. All else works great except the cable.

I read the manual and set my AV2 option such that audio for it comes from AV6 (component audio). In other words, the R,G,B of the component cable from set top box goes into AV2 and Red and White of component cable from set top box goes into AV6. I matched the On Screen settings for AV2 to reflect the same.

The above isnt giving any audio or video although i am certain the cable set top box is switched on.

Any help that any one can provide on this will be highly appreciated

Try using the optical audio out from the cable box.

Why not use the HDMI from the cable box though?

you probably have to assign the component video to a certain input and you also need to have the HDMI conversion on if it isn't.

i'm guessing you have a HDMI cable connected to your tv?

Does you cable box not have HDMI?

The cable box does have the HDMI capability and it will work, but being new to this, I am trying to wrap my head around, why it won't work with Component cable.

my component video is connected to AV2. Not sure what or how to do HDMI conversion.

Thanks for your reply

Even with optical cable from cable box, won't the video issue still persist?
