Default Re: New Receiver not decoding via HDMI

My TV has only two channels, therefore the components only sent a two channel signal.

I turned off the HDMI passthrough feature and immediately had all six channels being decoded/passed to the receiver.

Would have been nice if Yamaha had mentioned that in the manual.

Oh well, live and learn.

BTW; It is a great receiver.

Thanks to all for the suggestions and advice.

Having the same issue I believe, where in the setup utility did you turn off the HDMI passthrough, cant seem to find it in the yamaha setup,
