A home theater system is a simple and popular way of maximizing your home entertainment experience. A home theater amplifier takes your TV’s audio signal and outputs it through speakers, enhancing dramatically the volume and sound quality of whatever you are watching. Home theater amplifiers that use HD-capable connections like HDMI cables enhance this sound quality even more, delivering true HD sound quality over the amplifier’s speakers. If you use a Yamaha home theater receiver and wish to connect it to an HDMI-capable device, you can do so in just a few basic steps.
1. Connect one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI output port on the device you are attempting to use with the Yamaha receiver.
2. Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to one of the HDMI input ports on the Yamaha receiver. If the receiver uses more than one HDMI input, take note of how the input is labeled on the back of the receiver because this information will be useful to you later.
3. Configure the Yamaha receiver for the HDMI device by switching it to the correct HDMI input. Depending on which model of receiver you use, there may be a single button used to change inputs, labeled “Input,” “Source Select,” or something similar, or there may be a separate button assigned to each input and you can switch to that input by pressing that button. Once the Yamaha receiver is switched to the correct HDMI input, you should hear its audio outputting through the speakers.
