Thanks Jerry, I'll probably never have any use for them anyway. Sorry to be so persistent about nothing except my own curiousness....

I am not a Windows user so I cannot answer this. But I am thinking that if you don't know how to do this then there's no way to ascertain if your audio output is set up correctly.

Is the mic that comes with Yamaha receivers good enough for this? I'm asking because I read it was calibrated and fine to use.

Forget about that for a minute. Can you get any sound from your PC over HDMI via your receiver?

Set your HDMI output to the default sound device and go watch a Youtube video or play an MP3. If you don't hear sound I'd suggest making sure that your X2000 is actually using the HDMI input, not the RCA inputs on the front.

Frequency response curves at 0°, 45° and 90° angles of incidence. TIA, sorry for the simple question, it's not in Jerry's guide (the only thing that isn't)...

Cheers Jeff
Most pro (and home, if anybody uses them anymore) equalizers are 1/3-octave designs and a lot of venues are, or used to be before the DSP revolution, EQ'd in 1/3-octave bands. That was/is considered sufficient resolution for most venues, and is a compromise between frequency resolution and cost (noise, power, etc.)

Ignore them for REW. Use the high-resolution 90 degree cal file.

If no error message is displayed, REW "thinks" it is outputting a sound, but for some reason your AVR is not reproducing it. Back to the speaker level-setting tones, if they are not playing, then your AVR is not functioning properly. Next step would be to perform a microprocessor reset on the AVR. What make and model is it?
No error message in REW. Denon AVR model X2000. Was outputting test tones fine until I started messing with the mic last week.

I will try that when I get home from work tonight. If I'm setting the AVR input to AUX and using the AUX HDMI input on the front of the AVR shouldn't that be the input that is used not the RCA's? I guess there's an off chance that the AUX input on the AVR is bad; this is the first time I've ever tried using it.

It looks like the AVR is set up to use that input.
