I'm highly considering purchasing this RX-V467 and was wondering if anyone has had any issues using it in pass-through mode from a 3D source (Blu-Ray or PS3) to a 3D-Ready TV watching content (Monster vs. Aliens as an example) ?
post #128 of 588
I had to upgrade RX-V467 firmware to E017 (for European version) to have 3D going pass-through (Blu-Ray Sony BDP-S470). With older firmware "Monsters vs. Aliens" were played as 2D. After upgrade no any issues related to 3D.
post #129 of 588
Thanks!! I just got my RX-V467 (US model? I'm in NY) in last night. I haven't yet checked what firmware it's currently running but so far, I really like it. I havent' done any of the speaker auto-calibrating yet. I still need to get 1 more HDMI cable to have it run directly into my plasma and pass the rest of my equipment directly into Yamaha for HDMI pass-through. It's retiring my 8 year old Onkyo TX-SR600. I'm going to miss her, she had been good to me for all these years.
post #130 of 588
There is also E017 for USA or even newer F018. Good luck with the upgrade. I had the problems: upgrade from CD played by Blu-Ray and old Pioneer DVD failed. Upgrade was successful when played by another DVD Pioneer DV-600AV. It is possible that older Pioneer failed because it had down-conversion for PCM 96kHz to 48kHz switched off. It was set to "on" for DV-600AV. It does not seem to be related to the filters problem but this was the only difference I noticed in Pioneer DVDs setup common options. It could be meaningless of course.

All of the players played music CD correctly with S/PDIFF connection and for all of them RX-V467 reported PCM 44.1kHz!
post #131 of 588
Upgrade went successful! I was able to burn the audio CD firmware using iTunes and I upgraded the receiver via my PS3 from the optical connection. Took about 3-4 minutes to complete. I guess the only way to know if it actually works is buy a 3D-Ready TV! I guess about 2/3 way in (RX-V467BL & PS3) for 3D setup :-) Thanks guys!
post #132 of 588
After spending an evening setting up an RX-V567, I am not amused with it so far. The HDCP issues it cases with Windows Media Center 7 are driving me up the wall! Shutting the receiver off causes WMC to jump to a lower resolution half the time, 2 or 3 channels are getting black screen flickering, and the other half of the time attempting to start live TV without first playing something else will cause Windows to throw up an HDCP error.

I don't know how anyone puts up with this; this is maddening.

Hi guys.. I still cannot get my receiver to decode in dts hd:ma using my sony n460 blu ray player despite the blu ray player showing that as the output. i cannot get my receiver to use any of the surround decoders, it will only display "straight" i can set it on a yamaha dsp but i'd like to get dts hd going.. any thoughts? everything is connected via hdmi.
post #134 of 588
I never see anyone mention it, but does everyone realize that unless you buy the RX-V767 or higher, you're just getting a rebadged Toshiba? All serial numbers that begin with Y are actual Yamaha product. The serial number that begin with a T (like the 467 and 567) are Toshiba units.

There's also the issue of the TX-V and HTR units, for example the RX-V467 versus the HTR-4063. They look the same, but the RX-V series has a better amp design and slightly larger power supply. The HTR series has been sold to the big box stores, while the professional audio stores got the RX-V models. I read that Yamaha will now discontinue the HTR series and sell the RX-V series to the big box stores, because they will give the audio stores the new a significantly better Aventage series.

On my 565, the manual says that you cannot use the DSP modes when you have discrete channel inputs (ie, DD, DTS 5.1). You don't need them since each channel gets their own track.
If your Blue Ray player is decoding the MA, it is passing it to the receiver as PCM, which is fine, since it has to become PCM at some point before it is send to your speakers...
If you bitstream from your BDP, then the receiver will decode the 1's and 0's into MA...it doesn't matter where this happens, but if you want to "see" your receiver do it, you need to pass it the raw stream via "bitstream" option in your player, if it can do that.
I use a fat PS3 and pass the audio as PCM to my receiver. My PS3 reports the stream as MA, and the receiver signal info reports PCM. It is still lossless DTS MA. Cheers.

My Sony BDP-S470 sent PCM by default. To make it sending DD and DTS I had to change settings. Please verify if you have something similar to in Audio settings:
1. Audio (HDMI) set to "auto" - this is default (not to PCM)
2. BD Audio MIX Setting set to "off" (default is "on" and this caused the problem. As explained for the "off" option: "Outputs the primary audio only. Select this to output HD audio signals to an AV amplifier (receiver)."
3. Dolby Digital (Coaxial / Optical) set to "Dolby Digital" (default)
4. DTS (Coaxial / Optical) set to "DTS" (default).

Hey everyone, I'm having a similar problem with an earlier poster. I have my ps3 (fat) hooked up via HDMI to a yamaha-567 unit. When i turn on the ps3, the video shows up, but there is a persistent flickering of static in an unusual pattern on the screen.

Typically, the bottom half of the picture will be replaced with static while the top remains find. This flickering persists even after i change various display setting on the ps3. I'm going to swap out the HDMI cable, but I think i'm going to end up returning it. Any suggestions before I ask amazon for an RMA?

I replaced my Yamaha HTR 5490 with the RX-V467 today. Everything went well, other than I don't get any sound from my powered subwoofers. I simply swapped cables from the old receiver to the new one. I went into the RX-V467 speaker settings ans selected subwoofer - Yes, SWFR Phase - NRM, Crossover - 80Hz. I also tried to turn up the Level. The subwoofer icon shows up in the speaker map on the display.

I have the the RX-V467 hooked up to a Velodyne VT 100 and two Polk Audio powered subwoofers. The subwoofer are wired in series. This setup worked fine withe the HTR 5490. I tried connecting the RX-V467 to only the Velodyne, but still no sound. I tried using the RX-VT467's test tones and a Dolby 5.1 movie via DirecTV on HDMI1.

Any ideas why the subwoofers are not producing any sound?

Thanks,
Scott
post #139 of 588
I replaced the cable that was input to the last subwoofer and all 3 are now working.
post #140 of 588
I'm considering replacing my ancient rx-v795 with the 567 model. Does the 567 model provide all of the decoders I would need with blu-ray? The HDMI switching is a big selling point for me too. Is it the auto sensing type?
post #141 of 588
I am pretty sure the 567 will satisfy your needs...you can check it out at yamaha.com/yec/products

I currently have the Rx-v3800 connected to my Panny PT-AE1000U projector in my basement media room. I am looking now to replace an old (like 12 year) sony receiver. It is hooked up in the family room for TV (Dish DVR) and some Blu-Ray watching on an old BDP-S350 (can only bitstream DTS-HD no decoding). I have a Plasma TCP50S2 that does not support 24p anyway and has to do 3:2 pulldown and convert to 60p is device sends native 24p. The speakers are old as the receiver Bose Acustimass 5.1 with powered sub. WAF Factor family room- man cave media basement- I can live with that

I am looking at the Rx-V467 at BB with the free YDS dock- for little money.
I have read through the pages and overall it looks like most of the issues are just misconfiguration with Bitstream vs. LPCM, upgrading to 3D passthrough, or other minor workable things. so I think I am going to pull trigger tomorrow.

Additionally my Rx-V3800 has the same HDCP handshake issues and audio change from 5.1 to 2.0 channel when I turn off my receiver in my media room. It has always bugged me I thought it was the mobo in the HTPC a Biostar TA690G with radeon x1250 integrated in Vista. I upgraded that to Win 7 and added a GTx-240 HDMI card and the problem is still there. I think the problem is that the HDCP - since this is (supposed to be) pass through is actually with the Projector (or TV in your case) not the Receiver, but that is not actually happening and the HDCP is hadshaking with the receiver and getting the EDID information from that. There is supposed to be a way to disable the EDID and use static information to keep this from happening. IF you want to work off line PM me and we can work on it.

thanks,
J

Re HTPC via HDMI - has anyone managed to resolve the HDCP handshake issue for RX-V467?

If so pls share with all how you managed.

I followed Tulli's EDID instructions from another AVS thread, he reviewed my EDID but ATI 3450 HDMI card still will not handshake... he say's it must be AVR and need to set it to "amp" mode whatever that means!?!

Out of interest what AVR settings is everyone trying to get HDCP to work?
post #144 of 588
Is there are significant advantage to going with the rx-v667 over the rx-v557?

I figure the owners here opted for the 5 series thinking the 6 was overkill?
post #145 of 588
I am not 100% but I think the 667 has the descrete amp upgrade over the 567, similar to the 765 over the 665.

Anyone have a V467 Receiver connected to a Sharp Aquos 55E77UN? The receiver/TV combo works great except when watching tv stations there is no sound output back through toslink to the receiver. I am trying to figure out if I have a setting wrong on the TV or the receiver

My setup:
PS3 on HDMI 1 to receiver
DVR on HDMI 2 to receiver
HDMI from receiver to input 5 of TV
toslink from TV to receiver
HDMI communications and CEC all work
post #147 of 588
I have the HTR-5063 and really want to be able to watch a sports game (or even something scenic like Planet Earth) while listening to the audio from my ipod (connected via the YDS-12 dock) or from another source plugged into Audio 1 or 2. My old RX_467 allowed me to do this. I would just hit the dock button the remote and the video would stay playing on the screen from whatever I was recently watching. No extra settings needed.

I can't recall, but I think back then I had all the HDMI sources (cable box, bd player etc) going to my TV and then just one Optical audio cable from the TV to the Receiver. Maybe that was the solution...but you lose alot of other great functions since you arent using the receiver for switching SCENES or HDMI control or any other items I spent a few hundred $$ on.

While I have your attention - a few other questions:

How do I turn of the OSD menu? I would prefer everytime I want to make a change the menu doesn't pop-up on my screen and interrupting a game or show.

Yahoo. Found the problem. I had a bad connector in my optical cable. Now tv outputs sound to receiver and tv remote switching inputs causes receiver to switch. Perfect

I'm trying to do the RX-467 firmware update. Is it possible to do this on a XBOX 360 or PS3? I don't own a conventional DVD player anymore. I've tried directing my PS3 audio to optical output and playing it, but it doesn't seem to be working. I burned the disk using WMP with volume leveling turned off as someone suggested. Any ideas?
post #150 of 588
Well, I read around a bit more and it is definitely supposed to work. Burned a couple of disks using other utilities, still nothing. So, I decided to just go HDMI straight to the TV and use optical until I can figure it out. Well.. Optical audio isn't working. I've tried 2 different optical cables to AV1/AV4, confirmed PS3 settings are correct, confirmed there is indeed a light coming from the PS3. Still no audio. Is there a receiver setting I'm missing?
