Boy I am new here and have no clue if I am in the right place. I just bought a Yamaha RX-V565 Receiver and I have Direct TV. I'm using a Direct TV HD DVR and I am trying to hook up the DVR though the receiver. I hooked the HDMI from the line out in the back of the dvr and into the HDMI input on the receiver but I get no sound or video? My Blue Ray player works just fine and the only way I was able to make it work proper was to run a HDMI cable direct from the DVR to the TV and then an Optical cable from the DVR to the Receiver. I was under the assumption that I just needed to go direct from the dvr to the receiver and I would be good to go? Any advise would be great as you all know the owners manual's for these things are terrible. Thanks in Advance!

Check you manual for Monitor check in the advanced menu. Figure out how to get there and turn it off. This may solve the problem. If it doesn't I'd check out:


Let us know how you fix it.

Most of the digital inputs are assignable, make sure you have that particular HDMI input associated with the correct selection, like TV, or sat, etc...HDMI inputs usually have a choice. For example I have HDMI2 on my Denon set as SAT input...so when I select sat on the remote, I get the audio and video from my dvr.
