Check to see if the tech switched your tv's settings for VID 1, VID2 etc, then check the box to see if the right settings are in there, ususlly done with the box off and using the setup or menu buttons with the tv on, lastly see if the box will work as a stand alone hook it up to the tv the old fashioned way and see if it works if s you may need to replace a video cable.

must have the tape monitor to work the regular tape loop does not physically go back into the receivers processor.
only other solution is if the receiver has PRE out and ins use the PRE out to the EQ then back into the PRE in.
if you have the OUT but no in then the solution would be to go out of the EQ and into an external amp.
In my experience "young adults" like using EQ's to boast bass output.
If that's your goal a POWERED subwoofer is what you need.(check out polk audio direct on ebay)
Your unit is a 7.1 surround receiver the reason that it doesn't have the capability for an EQ is that it messes up the surround sound processor.
If the sound is not what you are looking for the issue more than likely is with the speakers. post a messege with what you want to achieve and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

SOURCE: Yamaha front panel display dim
Yamaha RX-V661 LCD / Front panel. I keep the 220uf the same to be Good luck everyone, JimmySCW
Symptom: when you first turn it
on, you can see a VERY little light but after 5 sec, you cannot see it anymore
or for most of us, we started using a flash light. Here is the summary of the solution and I know that it works
because I fixed it today 3/16/2011, 30 minutes ago. As many pointed out that there is a
"light" 12v - 14v in the back but there is NONE. How do I know? I listened and searched and
there are NONE. The whole LCD in the front is air seal like a light bulb so it
is a light bulb already. Also, you might
see a little burn/gray smoke on the left hand side, don't worry about it
because if the light comes on, it stills work but not enough power. If the LCD
is broken, please don't try by the part and replace it because by the time you
read this, the parts and labor cost as much as buying a new one (on eBay and
not Best Buy).
Problem: in the middle of the unit near the back near the "surround
sound back", there are 3 capacitor rated at (2 units) 35v 220uf 85'C and
(1 unit) 50v 220uf 85'C. What Yamaha did wrong, base on my guess is that they
put the 85'C too close to the heat sink.
The heat causes the capacitor to slowly blown that is why you still get
your power to the LCD but not enough.
Solution: remove the top, unscrew EVERYTHING in the back and there are about 20 ~ good luck. For
those that don't have good memory, please take a picture. There are many plugs inside
that you need to unplug before you can remove 1st layer (audio/ video input)
2nd player (HDMI and Optical input), the last layer you will see 3 capacitors that
are kind of "blown" up (google "bad capacitors" pictures or
video). Remove them then replace them, which you can Google this on tube and
they should teach you how. It was very easy for me but then again, please don't
try to do it if you cannot even change your car oil or build a computer because
I believe that is the difficulty level.
solder iron: $9-$20 get it on eBay or radio
(2 units) 35v 220uf 105'C and (1
unit) 50v 220uf 105'C or what I got was (3 units) 50v 220uf 105'C
safe but increase the voltage and heat to increase the life of the capacitors.
I keep the 220uf the same to be
Good luck everyone,
