I haven't had to deal with them lately (after 20+ years of using Yamaha gear, I sorta have it figured out for myself now), but when I did they were both responsive and helpful. Of course YMMV, but...

Still, unless they post the limitations somewhere, we will probably never know for sure. :(

Unless the DSP chips are the same ones, I wouldn't jump to any conclusions as to whether the V1800 and the new models have the same limitations. The chips in the new models could be faster and only...

Huh, I never knew that. However, I've simply given up on my Harmony Touches. Just couldn't get used to the gesture based touch screen and they aren't nearly as flexible as my three Pronto TSU9400s. I...

Well, I'm working on avoiding use of any of my Harmony Touches anymore (I despise the gesture stuff), but when I have used them I have learned the codes I needed from one of my Prontos. ;)

I've used tge awe-europe website converter to convert all of the Yamaha NEC IR codes to Pronto Hex codes. The only gotchas that I recall is that you have to leave out the dashes (-) and use lower...

Thanks for pointing that out. I suspected as much. Guess I should read the manual someday. :D

This doesn't sound quite like what I am hearing. My signal never cuts off, it's just that the CX-A5000 only plays the front two channels of a 5.1 surround mix. All the other channels are missing.

I did a bit of a test this morning with my CX-A5000 streaming some 5.1 channel flac files to it via my DLNA server. What I discovered was that it only played them using two channels. I'm not certain,...

I agree that your remotes at $5.00 each was quite a bargain. And I have to admit that spending lots of money on remotes isn't nearly as rewarding as upgrading components. But:

Perhaps my memory...

Well, I'm one of those that do spend hundreds on a remote. For me, the remote control is the user interface to my system and as such, becomes very important to me. It's kinda like the way I feel...

I don't have any 4K TVs (and currently have no plans to get one anytime soon), but what is lost w/o HDCP 2.2 support?

Indeed, and I don't use the factory remotes on any of my Yamaha AVRs or propro. My personal favorite remotes are the Pronto TSU9400s (too bad they quit making them) and those are what I use. The...

Well for those of us that simply put the original remote away and use a universal remote instead, smaller can be better (fits in the drawer better). ;)

Well, as one that's been in software development for over 40 years, I'd say it's not so much an after thought as it is a later completion schedule. Happens all the time in my world.

I don't intend to replace my CX-A5000 for another few years or so anyway so I guess I'll just not worry about Atmos. As I mentioned above, I mostly listen to music and I don't see how ceiling mounted...

So, does that mean that the current front and rear presence speakers are replaced by the overhead speakers? I'm not sure I'd go for that as I don't see how Atmos will be all that good for listening...

Well, I for one don't mind that they didn't add some "must have" features. That means I won't be tempted to upgrade my RX-A1030, RX-A2030, RX-A3030, or CX-A5000 this year! :)

I'm with you as the 11 channels I have currently seems to be sufficient. I'll likely wait to see how the Atmos stuff works out and if discs start getting encoded with it.
