I would gladly explain the TiVo's dynamic tuner allocation, but not here. Here's a clue. When you power up the unit, are not both tuners on the same channel? ;)

I had the same thought. I went to the Yamaha site and compared the 681 to the 683. Little difference (except for price).

You now know the difference. My V867 has HDCP 1.x only. It will not accept content that requires HDCP 2.0a, so no HDR or 4k. I agree, it should just pass through the content, but that's not good...

It's old but it keeps working. Someday I'll make the jump to HDR and need to upgrade. I have really got my money's worth out of this AVR.

Oops. I don't think those will work on an OTA box. However, if you do compare the individual Time Since Tune Start on each tuner, and they are the same, it's a good chance you had a restart.

I surprised your BD players don't have the Vudu app. My Sony Blu-ray and TiVo have it. But not in 4k however. Still, you could check the audio.
