    I just bought a Yamaha RX-V4600 reveiver earlier this month and I have an install issue that's driving me nuts:

    I can't get the HDMI video to work when I connect my
    system this way: Out of my HD cable box via
    the DVI-out connector, into the 4600 via the HDMI-in
    and then out via the 4600's HDMI-out to the HDMI-in on
    my new Sony HDMI compatible TV. Works fine if I hook
    up the HDMI cables direct between the cable box and
    the TV. If I put the receiver in the loop I get video
    for a couple of seconds and then it flashes once and
    goes blank.

    What's the problem?

    I think it's a known issue with this first batch of receivers wth HDMI.

    It can be resolved i think. contact your dealer or yamaha

    Well, internet dealer basically said to ship it back and they'd replace it. Of course I have to pay to ship it. My bad for buying on price, not service.

    So, any other suggestions out there? Appreciate any and all...

    Have you contacted Yamaha direct...? Ring the number on the website and ask to speak to technical support. They are very helpful normally. But make the point you are a member of the public and not an installer - otherwise they'll try and baffle you with science... :rolleyes:
