My Yamaha reciever doesn't have a hmdi input, so is it best to use a coaxial?

EDIT...Give us the model of your cable box. Might help out a little better.

My cable digital reciever doesn't have an HMDI connection. It has RCA's, Optical & S-Video. What about:

-S-Video from cable box to TV
-HMDI from TV to DVD
-Optical from DVD to Yamaha
-Optical from Yamaha to cable box

Will this work good or not???

Should be somewhere on cable box...bottom,side, somewhere. Or can u just list or take a pic of connections in back. Asking because you might be able to hook it up to stereo and not from TV.

I would get component cables(red/green/blue) and hook them up to TV. Then get some regular RCA's(audio out) and connect it to TV(audio in) Finally, get you a optical cable and connect your box to stereo receiver. Now you're able to get sound to TV and/or surround.


You need to get HD channels and get HD receiver for that TV. Less cables.

The only way I can get the one with HMDI is to get the dvr service which is more money. They charged me 10.00 more to get this reciver cuz it is HD compatible or something like that. I told them I wanted HD & that is what they gave me. I have red/green/blue & white & yellow hooked up to the tv as of now plus the cable from the box. I'm getting a headache & will be back tomorrow.

Thanks for all the help but tune in tomorrow for more help!

Back up.

You only need the TV to serve as a monitor. There is absolutely no reason to run sound to it or from it. All it needs is video. Turn the speakers on the TV off. That said, in order to get 1080p from your HD-DVD player, you need to run an HDMI cable from that to your television. It carries sound too, but that's insignificant because you won't need it for that. For audio from the HD-DVD player, you can run a digital optical cable or a digital coax cable from the HD-DVD player to the surround sound receiver.

For any source that is less than 1080p, including your HD satellite receiver (which does 1080i at best), you can connect both video and audio directly to the surround sound receiver. Use component (red/green/blue) cables for video and another optical or coax for audio. Same goes for a traditional DVD player, XBox, PS2, etc.

Now you can use the surround sound receiver to switch between sources. When set up correctly, when you switch from one source to the next it will switch both the audio (out through the speakers) and the video (palyed on the monitor). The exception is the HD-DVD video. You ran it directly from the HD-DVD player to the TV without going through the surround receiver, so you need to switch the input on the TV itself.

This is all assuming you have a surround sound receiverthat does not have HDMI inputs and outputs. If it's 6 months old or older, it likely does not. Even a lot of newer ones still don't have it yet.

If you DO have a surround receiver with HDMI inputs and outputs, you could potentially run every piece of equipment (assuming they have HDMI outputs) to the surround receiver with HDMI cables, and then run one HDMI cable from the receiver output to the TV input.


Just remember - treat your TV as a monitor only. Don't worry about getting sound to it or from it.

Not true. None of my Dish Network HD receivers have an HDMI output, and they are less than two months old. Component + optical will work just fine for 720p/1080i.

I tried to help the guy best I could. Didn't know component can do HD. As far as sound for TV, I said that just in case he just wants sound on TV from his cable box and not stereo only.

Ya, component just won't do 1080p, as far as I know.

I know what you're saying about the sound from the TV speakers. My gf's dad had me hook his stuff up, and he insisted that he able to switch his surround sound off and listen to the TV when he wants. I don't understand why, but I guess some people want it that way.

Nevermind, I figured it out. I was looking at the owners manual from the Yamaha reciever & this is what I got from it:
-HMDI from cable box to TV
-HMDI from TV to DVD
-Coax (audio out) from DVD to Yamaha reciever
-Optical (audio) & Coax (video) from cable cox to Yamaha reciever
How does that sound? Like you said before, I want all the sound to come from the surround sound & only have the TV as my monitor. So will it work like this? I'm so confused that I just want to return everything & get my tube TV back. J/K!!!!!!!!!!

I don't see any reason to hook it up that way. I would run everything (audio and video) to the Yamaha and then run one cable from the Yamaha to the TV (for video). This way, when you switch sources at the Yamaha, the video and audio both switch. Now, unless you have HDMI inputs on your Yamaha, you will still need to run an HDMI cable from the HD-DVD to the TV for video so you can get 1080p. So when you watch a movie on HD-DVD, you still have to switch the video input with the TV remote.

Does your cable box even have an HDMI output? You can use component cables (red/blue/green) from the cable box to the Yamaha (and then from the Yamaha to the TV) because the cable will be in either 720p or 1080i at best.

Here is how I would do it:

Cable box -> component video -> surround receiver
Cable box -> optical audio -> surround receiver

HD-DVD -> HDMI cable -> TV
HD-DVD -> optical audio -> surround receiver

Surround receiver -> component video -> TV

If it were me, I'd upgrade my surround receiver to one with HDMI inputs and outputs. This way, you can just use HDMI for everything, and still run just one HDMI cable to your TV, and not have to switch the input selection on your TV at all (just switch everything from the surround receiver).

Without doing that, there really isn't a need for HDMI on your cable box. Component will work just fine. You are still going to have to run an optical (or coax) from the cable box to the Yamaha. componenet will carry any video signal that cable box will send.

OK, so if I keep the cable box that I have now, the one with no HMDI, how many cables do I need? When you say componet video, does that mean (the blue,green,red) cables. Let me know if this is correct?

2-Optical
2-Componet Video
1-HMDI

Also, they sold me a 12' Monster cable for the subwoofer & it is to short. Will it make a difference if I get a cheaper brand like Rocket Fish?

Yes, that is correct. Component is red/green/blue and you will need two of those, two optical cables, and one HDMI cable.

Again, this is how I would do it (if you don't have a surround receiver with HDMI inputs/outputs):

Cable box -> component video -> surround receiver
Cable box -> optical audio -> surround receiver

HD-DVD -> HDMI cable -> TV
HD-DVD -> optical audio -> surround receiver

Surround receiver -> component video -> TV

A cheaper one should be fine.
