Help!


We have a Yamaha HTR 6160 installed with CATV on component input and set to input from DTV/CBL and a DVD player set similarly on DVD input. I am trying to connect AppleTV to one of the two open HDMI inputs. When I plug it into the DTV/CBL input, the CATV video is still there but sound drops out (duh). Using the DVD HDMI input gets nothing at all.


FWIW, the installers left the signal going out to the TV as components rather than HDMI.


I'm getting intmidated by the Yamaha manual and thought I would post here for an easier solution. I'm sure this is an obvious and simple issue but I am AVS-challenged...


Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Hi jbmorris, HDMI input will NOT output through Component Monitor Out.


Now Component input can output through HDMI Out.

ok. so I need to change to output to the TV to HDMI from component? The installers did leave an HDMI cable from the wall to the cabinet, etc., but when I plugged into both locations nothing happened even after switching to the TV to the appropriate input. I guess I need to also change the Yamaha configuration and/or remove the component outputs?

Yes that is correct.


This receiver HDMI Inputs, Component Inputs and Digital Inputs (optical and coaxial) are not assignable.


- Apple Tv connected to HDMI-2 (DTV/CBL)

- Cable Box connected to Comp-C (DVR)

- DVD player connected to Comp-A (DVD)

- connect HDMI cable from receiver "HDMI Out" to Tv "HDMI In"

- set Video Conversion to "On" under Video Settings


With HDMI connection (Apple Tv to HDMI-2 and HDMI Out to Tv), is it just video not working or both video and audio not working?


What you might be experiencing is HDCP (handshake) issue.


Does your cable box has HDMI output? If so, this may be the reason why the installer plugged the cable box and dvd player using component input and output.


Maybe try turning on in this order: Tv first, Receiver second and Apple Tv last (allow a few seconds in btw to fully power on) and hopefully HDMI will sync together.
