Like you I have an RX-A2010 that has served me well for the better part of 4 years. Better yet I bought it open box for literally half price so it owes me nothing. I am now having to turn the receiver off and on multiple times in order to get it to produce sound. The picture comes right through but no sound, just keep seeing "Decoder off" on the display. I originally thought it was just because maybe I was having problems with the Directv box but low and behold it is doing it will all inputs it appears. I have tried the Roku, Sony UBP-X800 all inputs require multiple start-ups before I get sound.
I called Yamaha Technical support and found out the following:
HDMI Board Part # 505709 refurb $172.68.
Guess why I have refurb by the price?
Because that is all that is available and they don't know when they will have more of these boards. I am on with them now to see if they offer some discounting on new due to the fact that they do not have any of these boards available. I know it is 4 years old but............................................... .................................................. ......
it is only 4 years old. I have been a big fan of Yamaha as my first "Real" receiver was an RX-V2500 that I bought some 13 years ago that serves me well in my office with a pair of Mirage Omni-sats and Martin Logan Dynamo 10" sub (quite the office system I must say).
Not knocking them now but a little frustrated at the situation I guess.
I will update this thread once I find out more information.
Disappointing but I also understand that no one will be producing a 1080P board anymore.
