That would be the 667 or 767, but they haven't been released yet. Might be this month, but I'm not sure.

Last year the better amp only started at the 765 level, but this year it's supposed to start with the 667 (although strangely the 667 chassis is the same size as the 567, and only the 767 is taller).

Usually when Yamaha include analog video upscaling it applies to component input as well, but only for a 480i or 480p signal. If the component input is 720p or higher then it can be converted to HDMI, not not scaled. It's not really a big limitation because 720p or higher should look good without scaling.

Can someone tell me what is the best setting on RX-V467 for the sub , the manual states to put level 1/2 or little less and crossover to max, , but how about the receiver , on the crossover setting which one would give me better bass or good bass, there is from 40Hz to 160Hz setting . My sub is 100w

Thanks for help and your time

The auto-setup with the microphone (YPAO) is supposed to decide all that stuff for you. If it doesn't work well, or for some reason you want to do a manual setup, then the crossover frequency is going to depend on how low all your other speakers can play.

I thought so, but no matter how many times I try the YPAO gives me an error 1 with no message of what the problem is I have made sure my connections are right, still not sure what is the ERROR 1

You checked the manual and double checked for any errors?
post #67 of 588
Error 1 means the first error that YPAO is reporting; its not an error code like you are thinking. You have to put your cursor on that error and hit enter to see what it is. More than likely it is an "out of phase" error. YPAO may perceive some of your speakers to be out of phase due to acoustics of the room. Just double check your connections and ignore if everything is fine.
post #68 of 588
thanks for the replies will check the cursor, for update on error if not solution on error will just leave it as is, it does sounds really good just curious about error .
thanks
post #69 of 588
FYI, I get an out of phase error everytime I run YPAO, at least on one speaker, always one of the surrounds.

Looks like you would need to wait for the fall release for real pre outs, or find another solution (such as using a speaker to line level converter.)

Would a seperate analog audio connection from all souces (cable box, BD, etc) to the AVR make it work?

I'll assume the answer is yes unless I hear otherwise and ask another question. I understand the 467/4063 does not upconvert but everything I'll be feeding through it does it's own upconverting. Is there any need for a second upconverting point? My philosophy is the simpler the better so long as it does the job.

Newegg has the RX-V665 and RX-V467 each for $330.

I would like the 7.1 in the 665, but is there any compelling reason to pick the 467 over the 665?

This would be used with a Polk Audio RM 510 set with Monitor 60 fronts.
Connect to a DVD player and Apple TV. Not needing a whole lot, trying to keep it simple and best bang for the buck.

Was also looking at the RX-V567 Newegg has for $430, but between the choices I would go cheaper.

Is there a regular day of the week Newegg has any of these receivers cheaper?
Saw the 565 was pretty cheap yesterday and it's not available today so I missed out on that.
post #73 of 588
You can select up to 3 receivers on the Yamaha site and do a side-by-side compare.
post #74 of 588
Ok guys need some help. I'm trying to help a friend who has the 567 properly decode DTS-HD, DTS-MA and True HD from a samsung bd-player. I don't have access to the receiver myself so I am hoping you guys can help me.

Will the receive show DTS-HD.... if its decoding it? Are there any special settings he needs to use?

Hi Billabongi, for the receiver to decode have the Samsung BD player connected to 567 via HDMI cable, set the BD player audio output HDMI to Bitstream (Audiophile) and Secondary Audio to Off (if BD player has this).

And also note sometimes a Blu Ray disc will default to the standard DD/DTS track, so you might have to manually select the TrueHD/DTS-MA soundtrack. Normally this will be found under Audio or Language Setting.

Thanks for the response already told him that, but his receiver isnt "displaying" DTS-MA... On the receiver what should the soundfield be set to (noticed theres no DTS-MA, TrueHD setting) and will it physically display DTS-HD, DTS-MA on the screen if it detects it?

You might have to select OPTION, then SIGNAL INFO to check in on the OSD

When BD track is playing ask what does it display and what is lit up?

On the remote press "Info" button repeatly to cycle through to display input source name, sound field and surround decoder.

Hey All,

Thanks for the nice topic so far...

I recently picked up the RX-V567's near twin brother, the HTR-5063, at Costco for a good deal . Incase anyone is interested in a decent walk-in deal.

I may have to take it back though. I'm getting a green video blip from time to time (maybe every hour, random) that seems to be related to the Yamaha Receiver having pass through problems, and not any device or cable.
Anyone hear of anything similar?

I like the receiver and would likely do a replacement unless someone has a good upgrade on Newegg to suggest...

I have been testing a couple movies, Avatar & Casino Royale.
I have a PS3 set to send PCM, not bitstream.
I have a 5.1 Bose Acoustimass 15 set. No 7.1 yet.
I did the YPAO setup and it seemed to dial things in pretty well, I did have the freq error on the sub but I think it's bogus because it's obstructed a bit.

When I check the info on the PS3 during Blu-Ray playback it shows about a max of 5mbps audio with DTS-HD-MA @ 48kHz in 5.1.

My questions are these...

Is that the max kHz I should be seeing in 5.1 DTS-HD with Avatar or Casino Royale? 48kHz?
I have never seen it go above 48kHz no matter what I try on the PS3.

The audio bandwidth never really exceeds 5mbps for either movie (VBR), does that sound right as well?

Some of my observations...
It seems that no matter what, 'Direct' just gives the best clarity of sound by far. 'Straight', and all DSP's for that matter, just seems to dull the range and clarity of sound and the effects a lot compared to 'Direct' with DTS-HD.

Maybe the Bose speakers really allow me to notice it. But if you are running PCM on a PS3 player, it seems 'Direct' on the receiver really can make a big impact in the fine details (realism of metallic sounds, wood breaking, sand, rocks, etc).

I will likely only end up using 'Straight' if using bitstream on a BD player, other than PS3. So far Spectacle, Sci-Fi, Adventure DSP's haven't really added anything to the experience that Direct doesn't do better, IMO, atleast on the PS3. Just thought I'd add some of my observations.

I put a post up in the HD technical area regarding a problem I have interfacing my crappy local cable company HD converter box, which has DVI and component video but not HDMI output, with my new Yamaha 467.

Just discovered that the 467 does NOT upconvert component video to HDMI, so would have to use the TV to switch, which I am trying hard to avoid.

Now I'm looking at returning the 467 to Amazon and getting the 567, as that looks like it does do the upconversion, based not only on the website comparison page but also on reading the owner's manual.

I am trying to get a very easy-to-use user interface in this system, which is used in a vacation home that is often rented out. HD and digital cable has just enormously complicated this, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to get back to an easier way to get a channel guide, and to switch from Blu-Ray DVD to cable TV.

Because the cable company's converter box does not have an HDMI output (it has DVI and component video) I am stuck with either upgrading the receiver or trading the converter box for a Tivo or Moxi. At least that's the way I understand it.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
If you know of any forum links that might help, that would also be much appreciated.

This RX-V567 will work for you. You should connect component and audio outputs from your cable box to AV1/2 inputs. You should see upconverted output via HDMI connected to your TV from the receiver.

I have RX-V567 purchased with a combo deal HD 500 from newegg. I do not see the green line.
post #82 of 588
Thx for the feedback cnewsgrp. Talked to Yamaha cust serv, I'll be swapping the unit.
It's actually a green screen flash not a line, seems to be some kind of HDMI pass through issue from my guess, they wouldn't say anything indicating any known issues, but I've swapped cables and sources.
post #83 of 588
I've only owned a receiver / AVR for 1 year of my life: the 665.

And honestly, I would say the 665 is the bare minimum for an AVR.
- Power was ok but not great
- Took a couple firmwares to be able to play a Wii
- You cant have a different video mode and audio mode (aka watch tv but listen to XM)

Unless you are driving tiny speakers in a tiny room, get something more powerful than my 665.

newegg had the 765 for $300 (w/ free ipod dock) the other day. I should of upgraded.

I have not played blu-ray yet, but I have dolby digital audio streaming via PS3. The receiver displays Dolby Digital 5.1 correctly. I have 80 GB (non slim) PS3 set to output bitstream.
post #85 of 588
I've been using the 467 for several weeks now and overall it's been pretty good to me. I'm definitely experiencing an odd issue though- it seems to like to send weird control messages to attached HDMI components. This might mean telling my media player on my HTPC to change resolution, telling said HTPC to stop using HDMI video out all together, or pull up the subtitles menu on my PS3. More of a minor annoyance than anything but under HDMI options, control is OFF. Is anyone else having this problem? This occurs most frequently when turning on and off my display (an LG with simplink turned OFF) but also occurs randomly independent of this action leading me to believe it's the receiver, not the display, sending these signals. I don't think it's a defective unit either as the RX-V367 I exchanged up to this model did the same thing. I'll be updating the firmware later today to see if this clears it up.

hi,

any of you guys know how to make the 467 display information on digital audio and video signals on the tv screen? the manual says it does that, but i cant seem to figure out how to make it work.

thanks!

I don't think 467 can do that. 567 can.
post #88 of 588
Hi guys, just got the 467 and I really like it so far.

Does anyone know if it is possible to match HDMI video with Tuner (FM) or DOCK (ipod) audio? For instance, let's say I have some people over and I want to have the baseball game on but I want to have my ipod playing the music. Is this possible?
post #89 of 588
does it have assignable inputs??
post #90 of 588
for HDMI I can change the audio to AV1-AV6 and AUDIO1, AUDIO2, but not TUNER or DOCK which are my radio and iPod.

There are white/red audio , coaxial, and optical ports for AV1-AV6...so if I found a connector that switched my headphone jack on my iPod to one of these then I might be able to listen to it that way...seems like a hard way of doing things though.
