Firstly route the freeview box thru the ps3 connection. HDMI 1 and then connect box to tv bipassing the Yamaha. This will determine if its amp settings

Swap cables to incase HDMI cable.is faulty

RE: Yamaha RX-V1800 advice

Won't pure direct only carry one signal, either audio or video? I have a pure direct on my bluray & when pressed turns video off & just sends audio, press again reactivates video & audio but turns off display on unit, third press to turn all hdmi functions off & next press places unit back to normal settings. It may be also worth checking setup page of free view HD, my parents have one that changes function of hdmi out to both audio & video or just audio / just video.

Yamaha pure direct cuts out all processing electronics but video is not affected.
