I didn't go through the manual, but try going from BD hdmi to avr. Then from the component out(monitor out)(red, green, blue) go to the component in on the tv. I'm not 100% that will work, but I'd try that. Your manual should say if the Yamaha will change the hdmi out to component. Post results.

If the AVR transcodes video from HDMI to component, connect:
- BD player via HDMI to AVR;
- component video from AVR to TV; and
- either digital audio or analogue audio from AVR to TV.

If the AVR does not transcode, get an HDMI-to-component converter (from monoprice.com or BB or some other shop) and connect:
- BD player via HDMI to converter;
- component video from converter to TV; and
- analogue audio from converter to TV.

I was afraid you might need to convert.
As eljay posted, eBay would be a good place to start. Amazon, or parts express would work too.

An alternative to a converter is an inexpensive BD player w/ component video and digital audio out. Here's one example.
yea thankx the only reason i got this type of blu-ray is that it has streaming for netflix, youtube, pandora and a lot more that my kid wants. Or i would have went the way your saying.

just make sure they are somewhat the same length if they are out too much (a foot or more) you may have issues with sync (unlikely but it can happen).
