^ It doesn't have anything to do with HDMI vs optical, just perhaps that the sub output level on the 477 is lower than your old receiver.

The crossover setting on the sub should indeed be set to...

You can connect two subs, but it's no different than if you used a Y splitter from a single output. You'll have to adjust the subs themselves to match their levels and phase.

With specs of 90Hz for the surrounds, the crossover probably should be 100Hz or even higher.

Since you're having some problems with bass, and changing the crossover by a small amount make a big...

Yes, the pre-outs have been through all DSP processing including audio delay etc. As for power, if you're not playing very loud it's sort of a non-issue. I do know that the 665 is down on power...

The 663 definitely has a better amp than the 665. The 665 was a real cost cutting exercise for Yamaha, but I don't know if that affects the quality of the pre-outs.

^ But it didn't leave the factory with bass and treble at those values, and YPAO doesn't set them. A reset might be in order just to make sure no other settings are screwed up.

23080 looks like main volume direct setting (i.e. requesting a specific dB value, rather than just volume up).

^ I look them out this evening.

You might also try setting up different scenes for each user. Tone controls are stored per scene, so you could both use your own scene when playing music.
