I'm need some advice on the optimum audio & video settings to have all my components set up on.

My current components are:

TV = LG 47LW6500
Receiver = Yamaha RX-V467
Blu-ray = LG BD660
Speakers = 15 year old speakers from a sony rack system
MySkiHDi with HD ticket
Wii

I would like to know the best audio & video settings to have the various components on the get the best sound & picture.

They are hooked up as follows:

TV via HDMI to Receiver
TV via Optical to Receiver (for Freeview & Wii)
Blu-ray via HDMI to Receiver
MySkiHDI via HDMI to Receiver
Wii via composite to TV

The TV is a Passive 3D model, the Blu-ray is also 3D & the receiver is 3D ready too (supposedly).

Any help is gratefully received.

Hi, these days with HDMI both sound and video sort themselves out to get the best (well pretty much), but for the rest you need to sort that the sounds are set right, this includes 5.1 levels and delays. Personally I am of the old school, like to measure things out and set them manually, most modern kit will measure them with a mic and set it to suit, thats cool but I like a more controlled setup, so tell me how have you set levels and delays for the AVR.

Hi Cyril

So far I have done the auto mic YPAO thing that came with the receiver.

I have the MySky set to Dolby sound but not sure what to put the blu-ray on.
It has options of PCM Stereo, PCM Multiple-Ch, DTS re-encode and Primary Pass-Thru.

I have 2 front speakers, a centre speaker & two rear speakers, unfortunately my old woofer won't connect.

Step 1 : Ensure you set your front speakers to 'large' (if they aren't already), then tell the amp that you're not running a subwoofer... if it hasn't already figured this out.
Your amp 'should' have already done this during the calibration process, but it does pay to double check.

To correctly set up your amp - you'll have to tell us what source you're sending from the BluRay to the Yamaha...

I find that they seem to be a little optimistic about the size of speakers and think that little ported 6" things are full range despite them turning to crap way before 90dB even up at 120 Hz.
