Ok, so simply supporting 120Hz isn't enough I take it then.
I'll poke around in the 3D section, I'm sure this has been asked before.

No, those sticks are meant for computers where you can install the appropriate drivers/software and configure them. You'll need to connect the receiver with an ethernet cable.

I'm having a problem with this receiver that I've bought last weekend.

The lip sync delay seems to be applying the delay to all audio inputs, even though I've only specified a delay for the HDMI 1. I have a coaxial input that doesn't involve video at all(from my cable box, which video is routed directly to the TV).

Is this some sort of bug? It has a lip sync delay for HDMI1, HDMI2, and MONITOR. I've specified that the coaxial has no video out in the menu, but it still seems to apply the HDMI1 delay. Bug in the software?

I will investigate further with Motorola.

Apparantly repeater handshaking is different to TV handshakes and this is just normal behaviour. Whatever, I'm just bypassing the reaceiver for the TV input.

Updated to G044 firmware today. I'm finally able to listen to the radio after owning this receiver for 4 months. Too bad in LA there are no stations worth listening unless you speak Spanish.
post #396 of 440
Even with the G044 firmware, the radio still cuts in and out for me.

I received this from a rep:
We sent an RX-V2065 (Canadian version) to YCJ for them to test and they reported that the tuner is operating as expected. The US version of the RX-V2065 does have a tuner issue which is addressed by firmware which is related to the HD radio tuner conflicting with the other tuner. The Canadian version does not have an HD tuner. If you purchased the product in the US you can contact Yamaha USA and request firmware. There is no firmware in Canada for a tuning issue.

I'll have to keep pushing them to see if there is anything else they can do.
post #397 of 440
Another RX-V1065 owner - for three days. After experiencing the same tuner problems, I found this thread.

It turns out that I already have the latest firmware. 049-207-027

So ....

I log in to Amazon and on the last day to do it, I file for a return. It was accepted and I Already have the pre-paid UPS tracking number,

We shall see how this goes.

Hello all:

UPDATE: Never-mind got a great deal on the RXA1000 and it worked perfectly in about three minutes. The ethernet control function is pretty slick and just what I wanted though of course I'm now too broke to eat let alone buy anything new to listen to. Returned the HTR6295 to FS.

I also picked one of these up without much research due to the price and features. There was only one at the local FS still in the box so I figured I'd take it home and then see what I bought. I had actually settled on the RXV867 before finding out they were discontinued in Canada and then balked at the price of the A1000.

At any rate I've applied the firmware update but I am still having trouble getting it to function with Windows 7. Internet radio works fine, both the PC and the receiver see each other, and the receiver seems to get along fine with an XP laptop.

With the win 7 pc it took a lot of the MS shuffle (random change --> reboot --> random change ---> reboot) to get the receiver to even see the proper folder but now while I can select a song all I see is "please wait" for a few moments and all I hear is silence.

I also can not get the utility, yarc4, linked in to the forum, to work on the Win7 pc at all -- I get an hour glass for a few seconds and then nothing.

I tried to dump media player 12 and load 11 but couldn't get it to install. From the on-line manual with the usual software disclaimers I had the impression that there was software included with the unit but none was found. Everything else was present.

My ultimate goal is to have a decent receiver connected and controlled by the PC but so far I'm not feeling the PC/AV love.

Anyone using the HTR6295/2065 with Win7 64 bit? Any hints?

Thanks in advance.....
Doug

I purchased the Yamaha HTR-6295 to replace my Yamaha RXV-2095 during the Xmas holidays. I seem to have made a big mistake! The main reason for the change was the HDMI switching in the 6295. It would allow me to watch each of my hdmi components both in my theater and in my living room. The problem that I am having is that whenever you make a change on either the projector or the samsung tv, the picture blacks out and the sound disappears for about 2 to 3 seconds at the other location. If I am watching something in the theater, and my wife turns off the Samsung in the living room, black picture. If my wife is watching the apple tv in the living room, and I change the projector input from hdmi to component, black picture in living room. Sometimes it will black out for no reason too. Occasionally, it will black out and stay black until I change the input on the 6295, and then change it back again. (switch from hdmi 2 to 1, and then back again for example). I have upgraded the firmware in the 6295. I have tried swapping out my hdmi cables one at a time, and nothing seems to help. Emailed Yamaha several times with no response. Finally phoned Yamaha and talked to someone, and was told it was just the nature of the beast, and hdmi could be a bit quirky. I need to upgrade the firmware in my projector and television as it is an hdmi handshake issue. It is not possible to update the firmware. Talked to someone at Hitachi, and was told that this is not a handshake issue, but it is a fault in the Yamaha HTR-6295. I generally can't make it all the way through a movie without having the picture black out. Very frustrating, and totally unacceptable! Is anyone else using both HDMI outputs without problems? Any help with resolving this problem would be very much appreciated. I definitely would not purchase this receiver if I had the chance to do it all again. Edit: I should mention that the firmware I am running in the receiver is the 036.104.037. There is the newer one available here, but it is not posted at Yamaha, and reportedly only fixes FM issues, and is only for the RX-V2065 (with HD radio) rather than the 6295. If anyone who has knowledge recommends that I still install the update, I'm all ears

It shouldn't black out for no reason, but anything that causes a handshake on one display could affect the other one. I don't think it's strictly a Yamaha problem, but someone reported that getting an external HDMI splitter solved this problem.

I am considering picking up one of these receivers used and have a couple of questions.

1) Can crossover frequency be set on a per channel basis?
2) Can channel level settings be set on a per input basis? For example, I like to keep my subwoofer channel set at +3 for movies, but +0 for music which are on different inputs.

That's No and No for the 2065. In the current models, independent crossovers starts with the RX-A2000, which also has the enhanced SCENE functionality which lets you store two different speaker setups.

You might also find an older RX-V3900 for a good price, and that would do what you want (using the system memory feature instead of the newer scenes).

You can thank the HDMI consortium for all these lovely quirks. Hitachi ironically is an HDMI consortium member.

Don't yah just love it!
This useless HDMI system that we are all forced to use is causing me some real headaches - the same as posted above - not only 2 secs of black screen when *anything* is changed on either TV or the reciever but random 2 sec blackouts at any time during watching BluRay movies - totally unacceptable - I have been trying to eliminate these rude interruptions to my video watching for 6 weeks now (the random ones, not the ones caused by input/output switching, I guess I will just have to live with those) - replaced *everything* - cables & BD player etc - now Yamaha have agreed to replace my RX-A3000 - fingers crossed but somehow I'm not expecting it to fix the problem...

It's time that we had an 'HDMI is Evil' thread to get the message across that we are not happy consumers! Constant upgrades to keep up with the latest version of HDMI that doesn't reliably work!

Interesting to learn that I am not alone with these issues. I guess I will have to do a bit more yelling at Yamaha, as the issues seem to be getting worse with my receiver. Now, even with just the projector connected, and the 2nd HDMI out disconnected, I can't even watch a dvd through the hdmi input as the display reads 'decoder off', and the picture is black. I have to connect the dvd player through the component and optical input, and then it works fine. There aren't enough inputs with this combination for my equipment, so I am back to swapping cables, and using external switches. Very annoying. Thanks to everyone who replied.

TERRIBLE AV Receiver!!! I paid close to $1500 for this boat anchor brand new sealed, with all the peripherals (mike, remotes etc) & I have had more trouble than pleasure hours!
The short story:
The HDMI 2 output acted up shortly after it was installed- like a bad HDMI cable but that was swapped out with the same results. For weeks it would not send out on HDMI 2 intermittently, (so no TV) yet the Blu-ray & other items on other HDMI outs worked flawlessly.... Out it went back to service for a month!!! but less than a couple weeks after it was back (working fine) I went to turn it on and "No HDMI Signal" again showed on my monitor - all other components worked. -Now awaiting a Yamaha decision? to replace this 'Lemon.' I am not sure I want their products anymore!

Double check you didn't hit the HDMI OUT button on the remote. It's pretty easy to turn off one or more HDMI outputs without intending to.

What is the overall feeling here?

I have a brand new set, including the remote control and the auto setup mic (YAO).

I missed place mine, then I ordered another set, then I found the missing remote shortly after that before the new set arrived. So, I never use the new set.

PM me if you want it.

I just got this receiver today, blu ray and xbox work awesome on it! However I am having a problem displaying from the HDMI port of my pc. Before I got this receiver I was using the HDMI out from the computer directly to my tv, and the digital audio out from the pc to my receiver. I was hoping to run one HDMI cable from my pc to my receiver then display on my tv and get audio through my speakers. If I keep the audio hooked up it works through the digital input on my receiver, but I can't get anything to display. I have tried resetting the devices in various orders but cannot get anything to appear. I am using the same HDMI cable from my computer to receiver, and tested directly the cable from my tv to receiver works straight to my computer.

Any ideas how I can get this to display? I have a Nvidia Geforce 8500 GT video card.

I recently started receiving an error window from my TiVo Premier XL that says "HDMI not permitted", searched the TiVo forums and found the following information:

If you see “Viewing is not permitted using the TiVo Digital Media Recorder's HDMI output. Try another TV input." or a similar message, the DVR is not receiving an HDCP key back from the television.
What does this mean? To comply with the HDMI copy protection standard, the DVR must receive an HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) key back from the television before it can decode the signal and allow you to view or record programming. If you connect any equipment between the TiVo DVR and your TV (such as an A/V receiver or home theater system) this equipment must also be able to pass the HDCP key back to the TV.


Does anyone else have this problem with G044 firmware? I'm pretty sure the trouble started after the firmware upgrade. The message displays for about 1 second every few hours which isn't bad except it always happens at the best part of the show.
post #412 of 440
I just happened to check, and it seems that Yamaha released new firmware in June.

"RX-V2065 Firmware Update Version 037.104.039 released June 2011 (USA model)"

Haven't told the receiver to update yet...

Edit: From the release notes:

This firmware includes the following improvements.
1. Improves Rhapsody online music service connectivity (For USA model only)

I've had this receiver for a little over a year, and recently noticed that no sound was coming from my sub. I ran the test tones (nothing from sub), switched cables, ran the YPAO setup again, double-checked that the LFE output was set to "sub" or "both", tried the "sub 2" port on the receiver, and still no response. I plugged the sub into an older Yamaha receiver I have with the same cabling, and it WORKED. Any ideas? Is it possible that the sub outputs on the receiver have gone bad on a receiver only a year old, and has never been moved, etc.? I sent Yamaha a support request, but no reply yet.

Is there anything else I could try to troubleshoot? I did notice there's a firmware update out there, so maybe that's a place to start?

Thanks

I finally took the receiver back to Yamaha, and they installed a new HDMI switching board as a warranty repair. Seems to be working fine so far, but I am cautiously optimistic, and wish I hadn't purchased this receiver.

Could you provide the program you wrote to convert Network commands to Serial? I'd like to give this a try.

Thanks
post #416 of 440
Does anyone know if the USB provides power when the unit is turned off? I just bought an IR Extender and want to put all of my components in my cabinet, but I need a fan for ventilation. I was thinking about using a USB powered fan, but I only want it to run when the receiver is turned on.

To add to this further, does anyone know if the USB stays on if the unit is off but the second zone is left on? Is there any way to change it if it does stay on if zone 2 is on? I leave my zone 2 on 24/7 as it is connected to my ensuite speakers.
post #417 of 440
USB is on all the time, based on my checking using a USB powered LED light.

Another option would be to use a relay switched using the trigger outputs on the back to switch a higher current power supply to power your fans. With this you could even switch 120v.

Only just noticed your post for some reason. If you mean iPhoneSerial then follow the links here, but I don't think it will be much use to you as it doesn't work with the latest version of the Yamaha app.
post #419 of 440
Hello everyone. I have just recently picked up one of these 2065's from ebay broken. It would not power on but after finding shorted zone 2 & 3 components on the ope3 CBA it powered up. I then found the receiver had absolutely no sound output in any mode. I traced the signals to an 8ch volume/input selector IC153 where they abruptly stopped. So I removed the IC and manually completed the signal path and the sound worked...since there was no volume control with the IC out i was at full output so I wasnt able to enjoy the sound for too long! So I ordered and replaced the IC and now I have sound on all modes except the USB, PC, Net radio. These all seem to be decoded by the black-fin IC (sub Micro) on the GUI board...So my question to all who have owned this beast for a while before I dump the money on this gui board is...

Is there a setting somewhere I have missed to enable sound out from these inputs? I can connect to my network (right now via a wireless router configured for client-bridge mode) see all the songs I want, and play them complete with the album art displayed on screen and song time counting but no audio. Same with net radio and usb, channel or song playing but no audio.

Any help/input from you gurus would be appreciated

The sound from these inputs is converted by a separate stereo DAC which might be broken. Otherwise, no idea.
