Great find. That really is a simple fix if you have basic soldering skills.

Hi,

I am a newbie and looking to buy a receiver. I have a few questions. How good is RX-V1700 nowadays compared to others yamaha receivers 75 series like RX-V675 (easily found in amazon)?

What is the difference between RX-V 1700 - 1800 - 1900? A RX-V1700 price is very affordable nowadays that I am considering to get a refurbished one? Is the RX-V1700 still reliable?

Thanks for reading.
Ted

What I can see that Rx-V1700 lack compared to newer model is the True HD and some wifi capability. Can those features be altered with any external devices?

Networking is pretty lame for these AVR's anyway, not missing much. Much better off using a dedicated streaming device with many more & much better features/options/codecs/menus/control.

True HD is just another audio codec. Your BD player likely supports True HD and should be able to decode it and send as MPCM/LPCM to the 1700 via HDMI. It's the same audio whether it is decoded by the BD player or AVR.

The RX-V1700 is likely HDMI 1.2a. That might or might not be an issue for you. But consider that this unit was introduced in 2001. A more recent model is probably a better choice unless someone wants to give you this model for free.

^ The 1700 dates from 2006, not 2001 (just see the first post in this thread), but the point stands: it's old enough that I wouldn't buy one at this stage unless it's almost free.

True, but it wouldn't be an issue for many. If you want 3D or 4K video it could be an issue. Or if you want HDMI networking or Return Audio. The very best lossless codecs are available on HDMI 1.2 as described before, so no loss there.

You are correct. I shouldn't have trusted the date listed on Amazon. It's likely they cloned the description for the RX-V2700 when creating the product page.
