4. Sadly no. At least not on the A830 that I have. It's the only feature that I miss from my previous Denons and Marantz. I can't believe Yamaha didn't include this feature. If I knew it before I bought it, I would have never bought this receiver. I found out too late.

7. Yes

See Input Menu / Video Out ("Selects a video to be output with the audio input source"). p.80 of the 830 manual.

It's not as intuitive on the new models as it used to be, but it's still possible to combine some video and audio sources. After setting this up you select the audio source, rather than the video source.

You can also use Input Menu / Audio In (p.79) for some cases not supported by the above method.

Thanks for the response. That does not work for me. I want to play video games (Xbox on HDMI 2) and be able to listen to my music stored in my NAS using the Server feature.
I choose Server and start playing the music. When I select Video Out to output the HDMI 2 video, the info screen of what's playing (Artist, album, song) overlays the video being output from the xbox. I wonder if it's a defect with my receiver because otherwise it's just plain stupid.


*update*
I figured it out. There is an option to turn off the info display. Never realized it was there. It's the little details in the Yamaha that make me mad.
Now I'm happy again

I have the A730, recently updated the firmware and now it won't turn on when trying to use the app or my Control4 app interface. I have to unplug the unit to get it to respond to the apps. Anyone else having this issue?
