I'm using the Yamaha with an external amp connected to the PreOut plugs. Everything was working fine for a while, but then either a setting got inadvertently changed or a problem has developed with the receiver, because now when I try to watch television, I get very, very minimal output from the front speakers. The center channel and rear speakers work fine. And when listening to music through the amp and the front speakers, they work just fine.
I've messed around with every Yamaha setting that seems like it might possibly have an impact, but without success. Would love to hear any ideas on what I'm overlooking. Thanks in advance.
Since it only happens with the TV maybe the problem is there. Check the audio menu in the TV and any sources connected to the TV.
Can you try it with another TV or connect a different source to the same input on the receiver that the TV is connected to?
