If you take the disc you burned and rip it losslessly (back to WAV format) I can tell you if it's a valid firmware file (by verifying all the checksums). That will at least tell you if the disc or the player is the problem.

Also, with the right player people have been able to play the original WAV file directly from a USB memory stick, and skip the CD burning stage altogether.

I would like to thank everyone for their input on my RX-V467 firmware problems. I finally got back to it this morning after being rudely interrupted by life. I successfully installed it this morning using NTi to burn the cd. my problem was stubbornly trying to get windows media player to do it. after several attempts without success, then wasting time trying every player in the house to do what cant be done. the first burn with NTi then using a PS2, thanks to kirktsemaj99 for that one, it was done without a hitch. when the sony EX720 arrives i will see how it all works. and now we wait.

What does the firmware do for the 467?
Is it fixing a problem or giving additional features?

the firmware allows 3D video pass-through capability for the HDMI connections

I've got the 467 running with two fronts and am going to be adding a matching center tomorrow. What is going to be the best way to set this up with the receiver. I know to tell the receiver that those 3 are all that's hooked up. Will that automatically downmix the multi-channel audio into the 3 speakers?

Any help appreciated.

Straight forward setup - Time Warner Cable box to 567 HDMI1 In.
567 HDMI Out to Sony Bravia HD TV.
Standard Setup of Surround Speakers.

During playback from TW Cable box, video and audio cuts out on TV and speakers. I have noticed the Cinema DSP indicator flashes on the 567 when this occurs. DRIVING ME BATS! Anyone else experience this issue? Any help definitely appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Good question for a 3-speaker setup.
I think it will.

Need to narrow down, whether it's the TW box or AVR.
Try plugging directly from TW box to TV and see if the issure pops up.

HDMI cable possibly.

What did I do wrong???

I got this receiver about month ago. Hooked up my Comcast cable box by running coax to the receiver for audio and component straight to the TV for video. I have a 5.1 setup and it worked great. I got a lot of activity in the surrounds that was missing from my old receiver. I listened to pretty much everything in direct mode. Recently, I got an HDMI TV. I unplugged everything, removed the component cables and installed HDMI from the cable box to the TV. I made no changes to the audio feed. Now, when I watch cable I get no activity in the surrounds. Surrounds work fine from my blu-ray player.

What do I need to do to fix this???

Sounds like your setting in the cable box got switched from Surround to Stereo (PCM).
caper_1's Avatar caper_1 07:03 AM 03-03-2011
Yeah, check audio settings in cable box...something like HDMI audio or something. Also, may need to select some sort of matrix, like PLIIx in the receiver. Could be so may things. Start with the cable box first. Maybe HDMI audio is set to stereo or something?
crussader's Avatar crussader 10:46 AM 03-03-2011
Thanks. Will check the cable box settings.

It depends when you bought the receiver, it's possible you already have the firmware that can pass 3D. You could go and download the latest firmware from the Yamaha web site, and it will contain instructions on how to check your current firmware version.

My 467 came with the firmware cd taped to the box
crussader's Avatar crussader 11:44 AM 03-10-2011
Am trying to download the 467 firmware from the Yamaha site, but all it downloads is a pdf. Can somebody give me a good link?
caper_1's Avatar caper_1 04:50 PM 03-10-2011
The PDF has a link to the WAV file inside it...try that.
Starless's Avatar Starless 07:50 PM 03-10-2011
Should it be possible to do the update using my airport express/itunes with an optical connection to the receiver? I tried it but had no luck so far. I don't actually have a disk player connected to the receiver...

my understanding of the firmware is for 3D pass-through on HDMI. I am not aware of any other benefits.

"l assume the answer is yes unless I hear otherwise and ask another question. I understand the 467/4063 does not upconvert but everything I'll be feeding through it does it's own upconverting. Is there any need for a second upconverting point? My philosophy is the simpler the better so long as it does the job"
I didn't see an answer to the question above and obviously I have the same question.
Also what's the HDMI standby pass through that people are mentioning?
Thanks for any assistance!

the AVR will simply pass-through video. if your sending HD signals to your tv theres no need to up convert them. no up converting from this model. the HDMI standby pass-through allows audio/video signals to be sent to the tv buy HDMI without the AVR being turned on. this is usefull for late night viewing when others are asleep

I have the 565 which upconverts. Reason why is I wanted only ONE cable from AVR to TV: HDMI. It will 'upconvert' component video (Wii, DVD) to HDMI, so I never have to change input on my television.
