Bypass the receiver and run HDMI straight from my DirecTV to my Samsung Smart TV with mini HDMI box and everything works fine. No onscreen display (obviously since the TV is not seeing and HDMI input). Any suggestions? Also what do you guys recommend for a replacement. Plan to stay with Yamaha. Need 4K but would like not to spend $500.00 plus again.
Sorry to hear of your woes, SE TX is getting thrashed. I worked in Houston for a year or so at the USCG Port Safety Station (Galena Park).

Costcos still have the TSR-7810 (RX-v781) for $489 if you're interested. Should be getting the newer model (TSR-4830?) soon. I'd say a 779 or 781 model from Accessories4less ought do fine, and you could get a bargain. UNLESS you have Dolby Vision on your near horizon, in which case you want a high end 2016 RX-A or 2017 model.

Yamaha amp cutting out

I have a 4yr old Yamaha AV receiver RX V673 connected to a 7 speaker 2-zone Bose (model 191) system. The sound would cut out for a few seconds and then come back on. The problem got worse and worse often with a small 'pop' sound at the speakers. Muting and unmuting the system could recover the sound but eventually it died completely with no sound. Picture on TV was fine. I had the amp repaired (they replaced a part, $98) but now the problem is starting again. I did the YPAO test and the 1.5V battery check on each speaker and all appears normal. Does anyone have any suggestions please.
Thanks
Rob

My suggestion is you need a new receiver! Seriously, though... and the other thing is it sounds like you were overpowering your amp with too much wattage from all your speakers.

But why would it work fine for 4 years with the same setup? The Amp was purchased to drive a 2 zone, 7+2 speaker system.

When was the $98 repair done? Perhaps they fixed a symptom (burnt out component) but not the root cause.

The repair was just a week ago. They say they ran it in the shop but after a week the problem had come back. I was thinking the same as you, they fixed a symptom but not the root cause.
