If the correct HDMI port is selected (on or in pass-through mode) then it stays at 1080i, but otherwise the receiver somehow tells the box that it cannot operate at that resolution. The TV is native 1080p and as such 720p output doesn't look very good. Can anyone else replicate this problem? Is the 2065 handshaking incorrectly when a different input is chosen?

Why is your cable box putting out 720p when you've told it to do 1080i?

My PVR when set to 1080i just puts out 1080i. When it's set to 720p it puts out 720p.

Maybe try a higher-quality HDMI cable. My PVR would not work with a "generic" HDMI cable, it seemed to "need" one that was HDMI 1.4 before it would work properly.

Finally in August I was fed up with this work-around, so I started bugging them about a fix. Apparently the Axxxx series used the same chip and had similar issues, so Yamaha was forced to come up with a fix for those receivers & the support manager indicated that he was going to push to get the fix for the 1065 & 2065. The support manager was quite responsive once I was able to get in touch with him, and even gave me updates every few weeks for the status of the firmware fix.

I received a call on Thursday indicating that I could download the fix from their FTP site. I just had a chance to try it out and stations that were completely unlistenable are now listenable. There is one weak station that the Insignia pulls in with a lot of noise that the 2065 sporadically locks and unlocks, but for the listenable stations the firmware fix seems to have worked.

I don't know if the update is available generally yet, the version is V037_104_038, so you want to watch for that version or later.

So almost a year later, I finally have decent FM radio in my 2065. I will need to retry AM at some point, but I am not as interested in that.

If the network update doesn't provide that version, try again in a few days. I suspect that once they get enough feedback that it is working it will be generally released.

It was a long wait, I am glad that they could fix it with a firmware update (note that it updates the DSP firmware).

Enjoy,
Thanks, Dave -- it's been a long time coming! I had Support send me the ftp link and am now enjoying much better reception too. It's still not as good as my 20 year old JVC receiver, but it is at least acceptable now.

Hey gang, it's been a while.

I recently bought the yamaha HTR 6295 at the boxing day sales yesterday for $650. I haven't really researched the unit or any others; it was more of an impulse buy as it seemed to meet my immediate needs and I've been thinking about a new receiver for a while.

I currently am using a Yamaha htr 5750 in a 6.1 setup and am quite happy with it - i've only been looking for a new amp as in the next couple years i will want a second home theatre as kids get older.. My main setup however, will incorporate the 6295 into a 7.1 with bi-amped front towers. I also have a zone 3 which runs another 2 speakers outside. The 3 zone abilities was the prime reason i jumped on the 6295. I also wanted something with great sound and lots of features, etc.

I guess my questions are:
- will I actually be able to run a 7.1 with bi-amped fronts, and keep zone 3?
- I actually thought i wanted a different brand this time (been eyeing onyko 808) - how is this amp in general, especially considering the $650 i paid for it?
- Are there many (or any) differences between the RX-V2065 ? I can't seem to find any good info on this.

Any help/words of encouragement would be appreciated, lol.

I take back what I said -- it really isn't much better. (I must have tried it when overall signal strength was at its best). It's harder to lock on to HD signals and it seems to be worse about cycling between locking on and then losing signals. Sigh -- what a disappointment.

I also purchased the 6295 on Boxing Day, and am very happy so far. Two things though: 1. I have a hard time getting HDMI passthrough while in standby to work, and 2. I have to turn the receiver volume a lot higher than I did with my HTR 5560. I would normally watch Blu-Rays around -37db and it was as loud as I would have it. With the 6295 I find the volume to be similar when the receiver is at -15db or thereabouts. Is there something silly and obvious I'm missing here as to why the discrepancy in output volume? Thanks!
post #366 of 440
I welcome. I have amplifier RX-V2065. Whether there is an added option in the latest version of the software "Web Browser via PC"? The latest model RX-V2067 already has the one function. What differences are between these amplifiers?

However, they didn't have the YPAO and the remote they gave me isn't for this model of Yamaha. I was looking to find a factory remote or perhaps some form of aftermarket remote that works well with this unit (any recommendations?).

Did some searching on ebay and such and no one lists a YPAO or remote specific to the 2065.

Really like this unit with the network music capabilities and the ability to access my music library on a synology NAS.

Thanks - bob

Any luck with this? I am in the same predicament, if not worse - mine came with no power cable, remote or calibration mic - any help is greatly appreciated.

What is the overall feeling here?
post #368 of 440
I just bought one myself open box missing the accessories as well, but the price was too good to pass up. The power cable is a standard computer power cable, the remote is YAMAHA RAV287 Remote Control WR00210 I just bought one off ebay. If you can't find another on ebay the Yamaha parts site has it as well. As for the MIC I have not been able to figure that out yet either. I may just do the setup manually to my preference.

Does anyone out there have a standard configuration for this receiver? I'm just looking for some basic settings to get me started. My equipment is below:

7.1 Speakers Totem Mites for left & right front, left & right surround, and left & right rear. Klipsch center, I forget what my sub is but it's powered.
Epson 8350 Projector - HDMI
Verizon FIOS - HDMI
Netgear Digital Entertainer elite - HDMI


Thanks

Hi All,

I have had my RX-2065 for about a year now, purchased new. Today, I was upstairs with zone 2 on, listening to my ipod via the Yamaha iPod dock. All of a sudden it cut out. When I went downstairs, the lights were out, and when I attempted to turn it on, it sparked out of the bottom, on the lower right side. Anyone have ANYTHING like this ever happen???
post #370 of 440
Bought the RX-V2065 and had it for a week now. Got everything to work beautifully. PS3, tv, usb, dlna streaming, internet radio ect. Zone 2 is in my washroom and zone 3 is in my backyard. Absolutely love it.

My only gripe is that when streaming music from my pc using dlna, i cant no fast forward the tracks.

I have tried 3 different cables, 2 of which are 1.4a,the other a Monster Cable 1.3b. None of the cables will cause the settings to change on either of my TVs. It as if the 2065 is hanshaking the box to a different setting, but only when that input is not selected. I have updated the firmware and it doesn't make a difference. I will investigate further with Motorola.
post #372 of 440
I did the new firmware update that Yamaha sent me the FTP link for. It definitely improved the radio reception however, it still could definitely improve. Before I could not even get any FM channels for more than 2 seconds at a time, now it is sustained but still cuts out on occasion.
post #373 of 440
Can you please share the FTP link - I am trying to get the update, but could not find it out on the public domain?
post #374 of 440
If you connect your -2065 to the network, you can update the firmware via the front panel - it'll check for the most recent version and download/install it without having to use a separate PC...
post #375 of 440
Yes, I understand I can do a direct download while on network - but I believe that version 038 has not yet been released? Is that right? or will I get this version too?
post #376 of 440
I just tried an update, and mine still things .037 is the most recent. So, yeah, unless you can find it elsewhere then .037 is the latest...
post #377 of 440
I tried the Net FirmUpdate too and it said "update unavailable" - so we will have to get the FTP link.

Shout out to the gentleman who had posted earlier - please share the FTP link!

thanks

Hopefully this is allowed (if not, please remove)

URL ftp://216.154.248.26

Then enter user name of yecrecvr and password Yamaha1

I just want to help out other people having the same reception problem as me!
post #379 of 440
Thanks pswart - appreciate your help!
post #380 of 440
No problem. I replied to the Yamaha guy who sent that info to me that the reception is better although still not good.
post #381 of 440
Thanks pswart! The files end in G044, can you confirm if this is V038 or is this a new firmware update release V044?
post #382 of 440
Those are the only files in there and that is what I used.

Call yamaha tech support for the remote. (888)-892-6242. Cost is $50 something for the full size remote with shipping. For the setup mic, they are asking around $30, so I skim on it.

i bought my onkyo remote there last month.
post #385 of 440
I tried the link pswart shared, and I had also in parallel reached out to Yamaha support and got the same link. I have applied the fix, have not yet gotten around to testing the reception yet.

Thanks again!

UPDATE: Tested the reception -HUGE difference in reception, earlier I had only 3 stations with intermittent reception, now I pretty much get all the stations.

p.s : I use my TV antenna and a co-ax as the tuner.
post #386 of 440
Pardon me if this is a silly question. I just can't seem to get enough 'sound' out of the system.

I bought a Jamo S426 5.1 channel series - the DVD/Radio/Bluray all sound loud enough, but not the TV. I have maxed out the volume setting in the cable box (connected using component video/audio)

I do not have a subwoofer since I live in an apartment.

Thanks !

I have a question about the HTR-6295 since it is the same? as the RXV 2065.

I don't see that it is a "3D Ready" receiver, is that necessary for 3D? Can 3D be done through this receiver?

Thanks.
post #388 of 440
Does anyone know if you can connect to the internet wirelessly using a wireless USB stick?

No this model is not 3D ready, and from what I've read on this forum, a firmware update would not get it 3D ready either.
post #390 of 440
Anybody has a video 'flicker' or 'static' on the screen when you switch input sources (all connections using hdmi in/out)?

I had a momentary horrible looking screen when I move between my tv & bluray using 2065.

Tips/tricks greatly appreciated

Thanks
