Have you tried selecting something other than 'PCM' Signal to see if it works?
You using old HDMI cables?

Not sure what you mean by "select something other than PCM". How would I select which signal is coming in?

As for the HDMI cables, I was using 'Freebie' cables that came with my Directv HD receivers, but last night I swapped it for a new high speed cable as a test. It did not make a difference.

Take a look at pages 47 and 54 of the manual.
It may provide some insight.

Okay, I fixed it, but I do not understand why it is this way.....I changed the HDMI Control setting to "On" and now both devices play in Dolby Digital. My HD-DVR is 5.1DD, while my Blue Ray is DTS-HD Master.

As a test, I switched HDMI Control back to "off" and got PCM again.

Any ideas why the HDMI Control setting would affect this?

Here's a very stupid/ignorant question. I just got a V567 - I don't see an obvious place to connect the cable TV coax cable - how do I do this?! (I mean to connect the cable "supply", not to connect the TV monitor itself.)
(Shame I can't post this anonymously!)

Thanks!

Just bought the Rx-V567 for a bedroom setup and it works and sounds great so far.

I attempted to do the Firmware upgrade via DVD player over optical cable. The WAV file on the CD was recognized but I received an error saying "wrong model". For whatever reason, the Yamaha website has the F018 firmware for both the 467 & 567 as one? When you download this file, it says its the 467 FW file, but the website says it should work for both models?

any thoughts?

I believe the FW on mine is E17.

Picked up the HTR-5063 at CostCo this weekend. It was the display model so firmware was at 015 and could not pass thru 3D from my new Sony BD57.

I spent hours trying to update the firmware via cdda with no luck. I tried every optical player in my house as well as via airport express. I must have burned that wav file 10 different ways on both MacOS and Windows with 3 different programs.

Went out and picked up a PS2 slim today to try that way. Worked on the first attempt. Save yourself some time and either borrow or buy a PS2/3 if you need to upgrade.

On the upside, being able to run hdmi from everything into the 5063 has really streamlined my setup and the 3D looks great on my new Panny plasma.

The "supply" cable must go to cable box first. Then TV 'out' of the Cable box to 'In' of the Receiver, then 'out' of receiver to 'in' of TV.

Hmmm...haven't tried it yet. Interested to hear the solution though.

Thanks, but I don't have a cable box - just a raw cable feed. (I only have basic cable).

There's no TV tuner in the receiver, so basic cable needs to go direct to your TV. Then if you want to play TV audio through the receiver you need to find an audio output on the TV, and connect it to a suitable audio input in the receiver.

I've seen this asked twice months ago but not answered, so I figured I'd give it a go to see if anyone has had any luck in the meantime...

I've got my HDMI devices going into the V467 and then out to the TV. I've also got a cable going into "Audio 1" that I use to listen to a portable music player. Is there any way to have the V467 keep passing through the HDMI to the TV while listening to the portable music player?

In other words, I'd like to watch something with the TV muted and listen to music (on the V467) while I do it. Right now, when I switch to Audio 1 the TV goes blank.

For some reason Yamaha no longer allows you to simply switch to an audio-only source without also switching the video. People should really complain about this, because it was a standard feature in previous years (now it's not even on the high-end models).

But with a bit more effort you can still specify that an HDMI input takes its audio from somewhere else. See page 17 in the 467 manual, "Receiving video signals from the HDMI jack and audio signals from a jack other than HDMI".
post #253 of 588
Wow - Thanks. Should have caught that. It's a bit of a bear, but at least it's doable.

By the way, my favorite part of the manual is on Page 33:
"7CH Enhancer: Use this program to playback compression artifacts in 7-channel stereo"

Wonder what that was supposed to say.

I was hoping to do the same thing.

Looks like it's a real pain.

Exactly that. The difference bewteen 7ch stereo and Enhancer is that with Enhancer DSP applied, it tries to recreate lost harmonics in mp3 compression (simply put)...or, as they have summarized: playback of compression artifacts in 7ch stereo. Same goes for 2ch stereo & Straight Enhancer. I find with my HT setup, Straight Enhancer is by far the best DSP setting for stereo listening...

I don't agree, I think that statement in the manual gives 100% the wrong impression. It's not playing back the compression artifacts (hopefully!), it's playing back the music without the artifacts. Like much of the manual, it would benefit from being edited by someone who's first language is English.

Exactly. Who would choose a setting that promises to play 7 channels of compression artifacts?
post #258 of 588
It's not the right word they are using. Look at the definition of Music Enhancer in the manual. I agree there is a lot of misunderstandings because of the translation, but now you know the intent and purpose of "enhancer". Cheers!

Sane here using win 7 and three tries at copying on different disc still no luck.
post #261 of 588
no problem with Nero here. Did you select "Audio CD" as disc type?
post #262 of 588
Got the 467 and it sounds awesome!! One thing that concerns me is the face of the receiver seems scratch prone. Had some faint hairline scratches out of the box. Is this normal?

With Windows Media Player you have to turn off "Apply volume leveling..." (in Burn options), otherwise it modifies the data and the update won't work.
post #264 of 588
I finally got mine to work although i got several odd messages on the display after it finished. The new FW did work though.

no prob. Make sure you use a toslink cable as well, and follow the instructions carefully.

The disc might be OK, it could be the player that's the problem. The older the player the more likely it will work. PS2 is known to work. PS3 will work if you set the audio output options correctly.

If you take the disc you burned and rip it losslessly (back to WAV format) I can tell you if it's a valid firmware file (by verifying all the checksums). That will at least tell you if the disc or the player is the problem.

Also, with the right player people have been able to play the original WAV file directly from a USB memory stick, and skip the CD burning stage altogether.
