My point was that there have been three post-release updates offered to the users. Mine came 1.02, I've put on 1.04 (wish not as XM has never worked right since), 1.05, and 1.07. Maybe I missed what your original post was trying to say.

^Lakin thought there were five firmware updates, his too came with 1.02 (I think), so was just using an example showing there were only three. No biggie.

Yes, they match.

I spent 5 hours today changing cables, rebooting computers, turning the AVR on and off, removing my switch (need to determine it it is/was bad because now I have 2 connections that aren't connected to the network), reloading the router firmware, changing the 160N router back to my WRT54G router, resetting the routers and reentering the settings, and some other stuff.

I was able to get Net Radio to work at various stages. But I needed it to work with everything else up and running. For now, I think I have it all working. The settings, etc. in the end are the same as what I started with, with the exception of the gigabit switch. As you may remember, I had originally connected the 10/100 switch to the gigabit switch and later changed it so that the 10/100 switch and the gigabit switch were plugged into the router separately.

I'll check tomorrow to see if Net Radio still works.

Here's my setup - all wired:

AVR and DVR connected to a 10/100 switch
Switch connected to 160N router
Another DVR, Mac and Printer connected to the 160N router
Router connected to a DSL modem

Next question - on my 992, the volume control turned about 1 revolution. On the 3900 it appears to turn further and thus is less sensitive. In other words, it must be turned a lot to increase the volume a little. Is this normal?
post #2437 of 6030
I updated my 3900 to firmware 1.07 yesterday primarily to enjoy Sirus internet radio. The update was done over a wired connction from my router without any problems. This receiver really has more functionality than I will ever use and to top it off has awesome sound. I have owned it for about 5 months now and currently have a Blu Ray, HD DVD, Directv, and SACD connected. In addition to the connections mentioned Sirius and the net radio are great features for me since my system is in a basement.
Just thought some might want to know this is a solid receiver.

No reason to think it's not normal My understanding is that a certain amount of rotation on the volume control increments by .5 dB. As volume starts at -80 dB, it takes awhile to get sound around -50 dB to -40 dB.

Don't worry about it - it likely works differently than your Sony. It's actually a pretty nice volume control IMO.

I don't own the 3900, but the few minutues I played with the 1900 in a store, it seemed like the volume control was senstive to how fast you turned it. e.g. half a turn done quickly changed the volume more than half a turn done slowly. Maybe I was imagining this, but the knob definitely felt like it behaved differently than on my 1800.

Not sure where you got Sony from but he 992 was a Yamaha RX-V992.

The Vol + and - buttons on the remote must be held down quite a while before volume seems to change. On the 992, it was rather quick. Sure would be nice to be able to change the increments - maybe 1.5 dB instead of .5.

Is there a setting somewhere that would set the volume to around -40 to start when the AVR is turned on? I think I saw an Initial volume setting somewhere. I'll look later today if I get time.

I have no problems with the volume. But there is an initiial volume setting.

I like the way it works. If I press the volume button once, it adjusts by .5 dB which is welcome, I can always get the volume exactly where I want it.

Not sure about the 1800, but you are right about the "intuitive" nature of the volume control on the 1900. I like it actually, the acceleration works too when using the remote control, just press and hold the volume up or down key.

Addendum: The longer the button is held down, the faster the rate of change will be.

Yes there is, mine is set to -35dB.

I like the 1900/3900 setup, too. On my old RX-V2400, the first button push just displayed the current setting and it took a second push to raise or lower the volume .5 dB. The current method is much easier to use, it seems to me.

Greetings,

I feel kinda dumb asking this but cannot find an answer in the manual. I just ran the YPAO setup for 3 listening positions. One at the center of my couch and one each for left and right. I saved the settings at the end of the process. My question is, how do I choose the listening position? Is there a way to choose position 1 which is where I sit most of the time. I played a cd and went into the setup menu for auto setup and I can select 1-3 but there is no difference in the sound. Anyway, I hope someone can provide me with an answer. Thanks in advance!

There is no choice... it is used to make the resulting eq more balanced/averaged over more of the room.... (i.e. a compromise for the primary position in some cases.)

Can you save two YPAO memory settings, one for your prime listening position and the second for multiple positions?

You can use the system memories on the 3900 to do that, I believe.

The best(?) way would be to run ypao with one (the primary) listening position (or still use 3 , but keep the mic at the same position for all three measurements) and then save the results to one of the system memories (and maybe even rename the system memory to "Prime Spot" or whatever you like.

Now run it for 3 listening positions where you actually move the mic to the 3 positions you want measured and after ypao is finished, save to a different system memory (again, rename if desire to help remember which system memory does what). Now you can just load the system memory and therein the saved ypao settings you want with the press of a button.

I am trying to get the "7ch stereo" mode of my 3900 to pump out music in all of my speakers - including my 2 presence speakers.

But I just can't get them to work in either "7ch Stereo" or "7ch Enhancer". Yet the "7ch Stereo" configuration includes an option to set the level of the left an right presence speakers. It seems odd that there would be an option to set the level of those speakers if they can't be used in "7ch Stereo" at all.

The two presence speakers are properly connected and configured since they work when I use some other DSPs in 3D mode (any of the Entertainment or Movie modes work).

Am I missing a setting somewhere else?

You are confused about an important point. The 3900 has only seven amplifiers. So it does not amplify the presence channels in 7-channel stereo. It's called 7-channel for a reason

For the same reason, you can't use both presence and rear surround speakers.
post #2455 of 6030
You're bang on. I just turned off my rear surround speakers in the setup menu and the presence speakers started to work right away in "7ch Stereo".

I am using the presence speakers in a dining area close to the living room where the other speakers are. This configuration will work well for a party setting were the same music is played everywhere.

Thanks!

Found the initial volume setting in Receiver Manager. Nice little program. Does anyone have a user manual for it that explains all of the settings, etc.?

Oh and without making any changes whatsoever, I lost net Radio today

All of the available settings mirror the settings found in the GUI interface.. if you are looking for anything in particular, follow the GUI map in the Owners Manual.

Ever since I have programmed my harmony remote to leave my DIrect tv Dvr off I have not had a problem with losing my net radio or rhapsody.
Do you have any other device or devices that have internet capability that are turned on while your reciever is on?

If you do you will want to turn off that device and reset your router.

Also if you reserve your address in DHCP that helps. So far I have had consistant net radio by changing this aspect.

Thanks for letting me know what has worked for you. I believe turning the DVR off really doesn't turn it off - just puts it in sorta standby mode and it is still capable of recording, etc. Check your router when you have the DVR off and see if it is still shown as a local device.

I have a computer, printer, 2 - DVR's, and the Receiver all networked (wired). They all have static IP's set in the router and thus should be able to see the internet 24/7. Turning everything off and resetting the router everytime to listen to Net Radio isn't worth the trouble.

I'm going to continue to try to troubleshoot this issue as I get time. Any ideas/assistance is appreciated.

Does anyone have the serial command spreadsheet that allows you to generate commands for the RX-V1900/3900/Z7?

I have the old version that has errors when you try to create commands. Over at Remote Central it was mentioned that Yamaha has fixed the spreadsheet but I can't seem to find the new version anywhere.

Thanks!
