Hello, The receiver has a built in tuner- so I'm not sure why you're looking to connect a tuner to the unit. Also can you postback with the brand and model of both the turntable and the reel to reel so I can look those up and provide instructions?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not hooking up another tuner! That is one of three components that will be fed into receiver. It is already in receiver.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Okay, wasn't sure. So do you have model and makes of the other components as asked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Turn table is model # ***** Mitsubishi, and reel to reel is model # ***** Akai.

Thank you. Pulling up this info now.

Okay, the Yamaha receiver does not have any kind of phono stage built in, so a "Phono Preamp" is needed to connect the turntable to the receiver. The one at the link below wil work and then connect betwen the turntable and the AV 4 or AV 5 red and white stereo Inputs:

Got a pre amp! We are not answering my initial queston!
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Please elaborate exactly where you are getting stuck then.

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

What exactly are you seeing on the screen of the Yamaha- something about the radio stations?

If so, then are you not able to simply change the source on the receiver using the front panel buttons?

Let's just forget I asked for help! Not getting anything from you that helps! I hope I don't get charged for this disaster!

As I stated a little while ago, I do not require your assistance! You did nothing the first time around! So I am finished with you. I hope I have made that painfully clear!
