Hello, Please elaborate. Do all sources run through the Yamaha with HDMI and then one single HDMI cable runs out to the Sony TV?

Okay, so when you say DirecTv on "HDMI 1" and Netflix on "HDMI 3" you're referring to switching these ports on the Yamaha, correct?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

In other words, what device is changing Inputs (from HDMI 1 to 3), the TV or the Yamaha?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im sorry the Ps4 is connected to HDMI port 3 Direct tv and all apps show on HDMI port 1. I can only hear the Direc Tv nothing is on the screen except a no signal message. I havent changed any inputs

You're not understanding what I'm asking unfortunately. I don't know how else to ask it, so I will have to opt out and open up the question to other experts. Someone else should be along shortly.

Ohh I got it ....I think someome might haved changed the input on the direct tv via the remote

Hello, my name is Rusty. I have a different approach... Is your DirecTV box connected with a cable to your TV or to your Yamaha? Please don't say both, this is very important.
