can I use a Yamaha receiver preout to power a home theater in a box?

I apologize, if this question have been answered already. I tried to find an answer for my question, but couldn't find it. I'm going to buy a Yamaha RX-V463 5.1receiver to connect a panasonic surround speakers, and with the intention to use its preamp to power my samsung d5300 home theater system and have them playing at the same time. can I do this? If so can I use the volume from the yamaha to control the samsung? For example if lower the volume on the yamaha, it will lower on both systems.

Thanks

Hello, as the Yamaha RX-V463 does not have any pre-outs nor does it have any zone outputs you wont be able to send a signal to the other home system.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

This Marantz SR5006 has pre-outs for the main left/right channels. That would raise and lower the volume of your other system as you adjust the Marantz.

Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU

Sorry I am trying to figure out what you are trying to do. That Samsung HTIB uses a small amp in the BluRay player to power the speakers. Are you looking to bypass this?

Re: can I use a Yamaha receiver preout to power a home theater in a box?

I think he wants to have more power , and or more sources. In my opinion... I would get some inexpensive speakers for the new AVR (if you shop around there are deals on AVRs that come with speakers comparable to the HTIB), and use the HTIB in another room or re-home it to a friend.

Here is an example... http://www.accessories4less.com/make...peakers/1.html

My Home Living room Theater
Samsung 65" FP, Yamaha CX-A5100, Xilica XP4080, (5) JBL 8340As, PS3, XBox One, (1) Asus mini pc, (2) Furman Power Conditioners, Darbee Darcet, Oppo UDP-203, and a Project RPM 1.5 Carbon turntable..

But if you are just trying to use the Bluray strickly as a source and want to power the speakers with a receiver, any receiver will work just hook the speakers via the receivers speaker terminals just as you would with the bluray and plug in the bluray via an HDMI. I would also probably go in the bluray's menu and turn off all the audio processing and let the receiver to that work

Looking at the manual... It appears that you could hookup the HDMI out to your new AVR, and then hook the speakers up to the AVR.

Hi, how are you? What you mention that I can use the HDMI output and power any receiver made me change my mind. I not longer want to buy the Yamaha Receiver which going to be a waste of money. So since I have two Home Theater in a box i decided to hook them up together. This is what I mean. Hook up the Samsung Home Theater HT-D5300 HDMI output to this Panasonic SC XH170 Home Theater system. I saw that the panasonic doesn't have HDMI input, so would be find if I buy a HDMI to RCA cable?
