New LG tv won't accept composite signal via HDMI from tuner

We recently bought an LG 60UB8200 4K tv, and I'm running a Yamaha VR V367 tuner for all our players (Bluray, WiiU, PS3). All those are hooked up with HDMI, and then I have an HDMI cable running from the tuner to the TV and they all work fine, but now I'm trying to hook up our PS2 through the tuner's composite jacks (yellow/red/white) and the tuner used to output the signal to our older LG TV, but now the new TV won't see the composite signal through the HDMI.

Is this some kind copy protection thing in the new HDMI standards? Is there any way to get this signal through?

tks

I'll assume you've tried another composite cable to see if it's not that? I haven't heard anything about any copyright protection that would prevent a signal over composite even though you're piping it through HDMI.

No, not sure if I have another one with the PS2 plug size. I'll see what I have in storage. Otherwise the wife is okay with sending it to eBay and rebuying any must-have titles in digital versions.

Milo if you figure this out, LMK, I'm having a similar issue. Tried to hook up my NES through my Onkyo to my LG over Composite to HDMI and could only hear sound and no video.

Re: New LG tv won't accept composite signal via HDMI from tuner

milo, Assuming you mean the RX-V367 surround sound receiver, pg14 of the manual shows that this unit does not convert from one video input to another output type. You would need to connect composite to your TV, or use some 3rd device to convert to HDMI before going into the V367.

Josh, probably same issue. What model Onkyo?

Some models do convert from composite, although current models should not from component video to HDMI, that is no longer allowed.

That was my thought as well, but the OP stated that it worked with his old TV.

However, the TV is likely using a new HDMI version.

Josh,
Yours certainly supports conversion. Do you have a component video input assigned to that input? Try turning it off in the settings. For an NES, it shouldn't be a signal issue, NES only has 480i.

Re: New LG tv won't accept composite signal via HDMI from tuner

Yes, the old TV would accept it from the tuner (I used to run my Laserdisc player through the tuner via composite also).

So, it's the tv not wanting to accept it. My wife looked up convertors already and it's not worth it, we'll likely just sell the PS2 and rebuy digital versions of certain games for the PS3.

thanks

You keep calling it a 'tuner'. Are you actually talking about a receiver?

I've never been clear on the difference - I plug in the bluray and WiiU and such, then run it to the tv and there's speakers. Whatever that is.

It's a receiving tuner.

It's a receiver. The tuner --- AM/FM radio --- is a section of the receiver.

Do you mean composite? The NES cable I have is just yellow (video) and red (mono audio).

Re: New LG tv won't accept composite signal via HDMI from tuner

Nope, component. Look in the input setup settings. Manual seemed to indicate that component being turned on might block composite from working, even if no component wires are physically attached. But it was a bit contradictory, so not sure.
