hi this is my first time and i'm having difficulties even after reading the mannual and guide available on this forum b/c i couldnt get a straight answer.


i'm just trying to get my new home theatre 5.1 speakers to output the sounds my hdtv currently outputs. already connected the speakers and the subwoofer according to the mannual. before I use hdmi to connect dvd player to the tv and A/V from cable box to tv (very easy and simple and everything works).


now with an extra receiver Yamaha HTR-6130 (cdn), i connected the dvd player to the receiver (hdmi), and then another hdmi cable from receiver to hdtv. Similar setup for A/V. But this doesn't really do the trick. tried playing with audio out from hdtv to receiver but didn't seem to help. i don't currently have other types of cables mentioned in the manual (none came with the box). clearly i'm missing some connections so any help is appreciated (feel free to link me to a guide).

Looks like that receiver only does HDMI video passthrough. No HDMI audio:

Great Picture Quality for High-Definition Formats

The HTR-6130 features dual HDMI inputs and one output that can support all HD video formats, including 720p, 1080i and 1080p. This means you can connect two HDMI sources, such as a DVD player and a high-definition set-top box, and enjoy the highest possible quality with HD display (does not support audio signal).

So you need either an optical or digital coaxial cable from the DVD player to the receiver. And depending what cable box you have, either another optical/coaxial or if a digital audio out isn't available on the box, an analog audio cable.

If you look at the photo, the optical and digital coax (orange plug) are all the way to the left. The analog audio are in the center under the yellow. That's where you need the cables to go.


What DVD player and what cable box do you have?

Thanks for the clarification Tulpa!


For my DVD player I checked the back panel and it seem to need an optical audio out. So all I need is a cable and it probably would work.


I managed to get my AV cable from the Sonicview SV-4000 outputting sound to the speakers correctly. However, only the front left and front right speakers were getting audio. I couldn't hear anything from the subwoofer or the other 3 speakers (front, rear L/R). Is this normal?

Depends on the station. If the station is outputting stereo, which is the vast majority, it'll probably only come from the left and right (stereo) speakers. You can try putting on a processing mode like Dolby ProLogicII to see if the receiver can't expand it to the sub and other speakers.


Now are you using the red and white cables? I see the box you posted has an SPDIF out smack in the middle (black, next to the red/white audio), and it looks like a digital coaxial out. If you have a digital coaxial cable, or even a yellow plug composite video cable, you can run that to the orange digital coaxial audio in on the receiver. If you can tune an HD channel, then you should hear more out of your speakers on certain programs that broadcast Dolby Digital 5.1.
