It doesn't matter what tv. Why won't the receiver send the signal thru ?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The receiver has HDMI capability.
Expert:  Nathan replied 6 months ago.

Do you have the issue with any other device (passing hdmi through the yamaha) such as cable/satellite, dvd, etc?

Do you have hdmi out from the yamaha to the tv?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have my satellite going thru on the DTV circuit so I put the Apple TV box on the DVR but theres nothing happening
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Will the TV not like the fact that the Reciever only has one output so the TV will have to bring in both the satellite signal and the internet on the same input ?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
never mind I got it working !! I was wrong, the TV does matter. I tried it on my old Samsung and just switched to the new LG and never tried it till now but it works !! Thanks for giving me the idea !!
Expert:  Nathan replied 6 months ago.

No that shouldn't matter, if satellite is working via hdmi (passed through the yamaha) then your connections are fine.

There are some things we could do to make it work. it is most likely a resolution issue with the new 4k tv though
