Use the INFO button on the remote to select what's displayed.

I can't seem to get the XM satellite radio to login. Keeps saying 'incorrect user account' after I input the correct info. Same login info worked fine on my Sony BDP. I'd rather use the receiver to listen to XM so anyone know what the problem is?

Today my RX-V673 has no HDMI output. I used it just a few days ago without any problems. Not sure what happened, as everything has worked fine since I purchased it - never even a hiccup. So I did some preliminary troubleshooting - I bypassed the receiver to check my video source. Everything was good there. Next I took my in-wall hdmi cable out of the equation, but still had no video output from the receiver. I performed a factory reset, which didn't change anything. Then I noticed that I was behind on firmware (was running 1.64). I upgraded via USB to 1.85 in hopes that would normalize everything. No luck.

Is there anything I'm missing that could cause this?

Audio frequently cutting out


I am hoping someone could help me with this issue. I have had my receiver for just over two years now. The problem started small, but has gradually gotten worse and worse.

Basically, the audio cuts out for a few seconds and then returns. Sometimes it does so every 10 minutes, sometimes every 30 seconds. When it does cut out, the speaker icons disappear from the display of the receiver, and then return again just before the audio plays.

I have tried using headphones, instead of speakers (speakers unplugged) - same problem.
I have tried playing music through Ethernet (HDMI unplugged) - same problem.
I have placed the unit in a different location - same problem.
I have power it from a different wall socket - same problem.
It worked perfectly for two years...

Rarely, there is a subtle noise, like someone crumpling a plastic shopping bag, or like firecrackers, coming from the speakers.

I have sent it in for repairs twice, but the Yamaha engineers say that the unit is working perfectly. The second time, the engineer said he tried it at his home for over a week, and he didn't have any issues.

After they returned it, each time it is fine for a day or two, and then the audio issues start again. Which leaves me to believe it must be something in my home.

Has anyone else had an issue like this, or know what else I could try to resolve it? Any forum searches I have done, refer to HDMI issue, which I bypassed, or TV Boxes, which I don't have connected at the moment.

The engineer said, he could replace the DSP board (I think that's what he means. I am in Taiwan, and the engineer only speaks Chinese) But he said that could be expensive.

Thanks in advance!
