Yamaha HTR-8063 Reciever & Logitech Z5500 Speakers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi there,
First post, please be gentle with me.
I've finally gotten around to rearranging my setup, and hooking up my Yamaha THR-8063 Receiver. I've been using Logitech Z5500 speakers hooked up to the Blu Ray Player and the PlayStation, and they've worked great.
Sadly, my TV only has 2 HDMI connections, so couldn't use some of my other devices.

I've got everything hooked up right (as per Yamaha's suggestion, I've hooked up the Logitech speakers via the Preout, using RCA to 3.5mm inputs into the Logitech's 'Control Pod'.
However, I'm not getting any sound via the receiver to the speakers.
I can:
Power the receiver off, and have the video and sound pass through the receiver, and into the TV (Stereo only, of course).
However, once I turn the receiver on, I'm not getting any sound to the speakers or even the TV.
I've got the Blu Ray player and my Sony NSZ7 Google TV Box also hooked up to the speakers via Coax and Optical out, and they are playing through the speakers fine.

Could someone please tell me how to 'fix' this? I'm assuming there's a setting somewhere to tell it to output via the Preouts, rather than the traditional speaker connections, but I can't seem to find it.

I have updated to the latest firmware. I know at some point i will have to buy proper 'real' speakers, but these currently work great for my small living room, and my ears are poor anyhow, and these sound more than terrific to my poor ears.
I'm quite new at the receiver end, so thank you very much in advance for all your help.

Again, thank very much to all the experts on here for their help.

Have a nice day!

Are you 100% sure you're using the preouts? That receiver also has 7.1 analog inputs and you wouldn't be the first person to get those mixed up.

Just checked, and I'm pretty sure, please see the attached pictures.
Thank you for the suggestion though, I'd appreciate any other help or thoughts you have.

Just to check, do I have them plgged in right?
I just noticed the surround, the Front is Front Left/Right
Should the back two speakers be put in the next 'surround' spot, or should they be in the 'surr back' spot?

Thanks again for all your help!

If you have a 5.1 setup they should be place in Surrounds, not Surround Back.

Looks like you're using the preouts so that should be fine.

Okay, that's what I thought at the time, but when I looked at it again, I started having doubts.
Nice to know I'm not totally out to lunch.
So, if I've got it hooked up right, any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

As mentioned, I've tried both the Optical & Coax inputs (Blu Ray Player & Google TV Box, and the sound is fine there).
It also does pass through to the TV speakers when the reciever is turned off.

Thanks again for your help, I really do appreciate it.

I don't know that receiver but is HDMI audio somehow turned off? check each input setting and make sure its not defaulted to analog, coaxial or optical.
