Well, I just got CleanBoxPro adapters, and tried them with a Marantz receiver. This Yamaha sounds more natural and better than the Marantz, surprisingly. Before I had the adapters it sounded nice, but with the adapters now it sounds really good. I like the sound better without using the YPAO setup actually, though with it equalized it seems to deepen the bass and reduce the overall volume of the bass. On the Marantz the bass is overpowering, I couldn't find a way to make it less. I think I'm sold on Yamaha.

For what it is, it does pretty good.

Samsung SMT-H3272 - Nav.7.1.2.1
SA 8300HD (no C) *AZiO ENC311SU41* eSATA- WD black- 1TB - it works!-
-8300HD no more because TWC deliberately made it unusable in my area! :-/ :-(

Please help! I'm trying to watch digital cable through my v661 via HDMI and I know the HDMI ports, cables and devices work. My ps3 works just fine while plugged into the HDMI DVD port. Is there a step I'm missing? It's an AT&T Cisco HD DVR box. Possibly a setting I'm not thinking of?

RX-V661 - how to add bluetooth or wireless speakers?

AVS Forums, my favorite place for solid information sharing. My apologies in advance since I obviously have missed the answer to my question here somewhere.

Seems my google queries led me down multiple rabbit holes. I want to purchase a simple Bluetooth adapter/converter 'box' that I connect one of my RX-V661 outputs. Then I can pair my indoor or outdoor Bluetooth enabled speakers to that device.

I see plenty of devices for streaming audio TO my Yamaha... but not finding a Bluetooth transmitter I can hook up so I can pair external blue tooth enabled speakers to that device.


Realize that most 661 outputs are not line level, so perhaps I'm not going to find an answer?


Feeling certain I'm overlooking some simple setup at Crutchfield or something...


Can someone please show me the light!


Thanks in advance!

I think it would have to be part of the bluetooth speakers.. like an optional add-on, but never heard of anything like that.

5.1 sound plays... Stereo does not

...unless I switch the receiver over to "stereo" (2ch or 7ch).

I had everything set up so that via HDMI in (coming from an Xbox1), with the 661 set to "straight" it all worked just fine. *Something* got switched over, so now when audio plays, it only works if the source is sending 5.1. If it's just an old stereo audio track (eg classic shows on Netflix), all I hear is some murmuring from the sub-woofer.

It's been years since I've had to monkey with settings, so I'm not sure how to trouble-shoot. Does anybody have any tips?

Thanks!

Do you have another HDMI source? If that is working ok then the xbox1 updated. I wouldn't be too surprised. Keep the receiver on stereo or 'pure direct.' Redo the audio setup on the xbox1. Still having issues... reduce Xbone audio setup support to PCM 2 only and keep adding stuff until it breaks again.
