I have an old glass and wooden stack cabinet that I keep the components in, but the Yamaha on top out in the open. Never had any heating issues that way. I did install a computer fan back in the time I put an amp inside. You might try that.

That is absolutley the most important part of cooling, whether it's a car engine or AVR. The heat has to go somewhere. TBH I'm really suprised it didn't shutdown sooner, but at least I know to never be worried.
Take a thermal gun and see what the temps are in that bay.
Cut a hole in rear of stand, install a quiet 120mm fan.

Thanks, guys, for great tips. I'm definitely going to do something about it, the excessive heat is a killer for fine electronics for sure.

Don't forget you can get USB fans. Just plug them in to the front USB port when you turn the receiver on. I have my RX-V2600 in a cabinet in the LR. I am going to cut an opening on the side, at the top, for a 120mm fan to exhaust the heat out. My A2000 sits on a bottom shelf of a glass stand that came with my DLP TV. That's just open all around. Dust is, not heat, my enemy with the A2000.

OK, I have to be missing something obvious.

My RX-A1000 was originally located in my family room. Panasonic BD-T110 Bluray player connected to AV1(HDMI). Setup for 5.1 with Zone2 for my patio speakers. HDMI1 OUT to Panasonic plasma. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA displayed appropriately when playing content from bluray.

Relocated RX-A1000 to home theater. Connected Panasonic BD-T110. Connected HDMI OUT1 to projector. Connected speakers for 7.1 channel configuration. Set configuration to 7 channel normal. Ran auto setup for speakers.

Now when I play a bluray it displays DTS but not DTS HD Master Audio - and the back surround lights do not illuminate (no sound from backs either).

If I press info button on bluray player it shows it is sending DTS-MA 7.1 (via bitstream).

Anyone know what I might be missing? Been reading the manuals (Yamaha and Panasonic) over and over and seem to be at an impasse.
post #8675 of 8763
Nevermind.

I noticed the projector was displaying 576p. It is a 720p projector. So, when I went into the bluray player settings and forced HDMI resolution to 720p (from Auto) DTS MA came on and the speakers lit up. (Picture improved too)

Guess that's what I get for not buying my projector yet! (Just using a loaner)

Still seems strange that a video setting would affect the audio stream.

Is it possible to configure the RXA-3000 to watch one source (CableTV) and listen to another (Pandora)? I would like to listen to music, while a movie or sporting event in playing on the TV vs the OSD. Is this possible? Any help on how I configure the receiver to support this would be greatly appreciated.

BTW: I am trying to do this all on the main zone. I have the other zones setup just fine.

Thanks for any ideas.

Looking through the manual for something else, I came upon this on page 89. "Using Shortcut Function". Am I reading this right? I can preset a playlist (from the NAS) or internet radio station on the unit, then call it up with one touch of a button.? Am I reading this properly. And if so has anybody done this?

Interesting. May I ask who your contact was at Yamaha? I had a similar experience, but much better. I had to send my RX-A2000 in for service. They had me send it to one of their certified repair centers (not technically Yamaha) though I mostly was in direct contact with the service group at Yamaha, not the repair center. They ended up replacing the A2000 with a re-certified A2020. It was about six weeks between me sending the A2000 and receiving the A2020.

In YPAO, all of my speakers say "Reverse" for their polarity. Except the sub.
Is this something I need to adjust? All speakers are hooked up the same way. Do I need to flip the phase on the sub?

I also can't seem to get rid of the W-3 Level Error after setup either. I think it's my sub, because the tone it plays from it is pretty soft. I'll try cranking the volume on the back of the sub and re-running it.

How many readings are you taking with YPAO? I was getting a variety of errors like you're getting until I started taking all 8 readings. They are from 8 different locations, but they seem to balance out without errors.

I would originally do 2 or 3 but in testing I tried to keep it simple with 1. I'll go ahead and try all 8 and see what happens. I have a hard enough time with 1 with my dog and cats screwing around.

Finally got around to doing the 8-point calibration. It did get rid of the Level Error but I do still get the W-1 Out of Phase error, though the manual does say that could pop up even with perfect connections... so I'll ignore it.
Thanks for the tip!

AS long as you know your wiring is correct. Happens to me as well.

Playing with the network music function on my receiver (RX-A2000) and my BlackBerry Z10 phone (DLNA)

Streaming music works fine. I can use the receiver's remote and navigate through the phone's music albums, but if I'm trying to open a image (JPG) or video, all the files are greyed out.

Does the RX-A2000 not support loading JPGs over the network?

Thanks.

That's sad but true, no pictures or videos

Ok, that's pathetic. It can display JPG cover art, but not JPG photos. I'm guessing this could be an easy firmware update, but I don't suppose Yamaha has any intention of supporting $1,000 2 year old receivers.

Hey all,
I have a new living room arrangement & am no longer using my av rack. I have a old zlines frosted glass stand that I would like to use for my av equipment. The clearance on the middle shelf is 9 inches, but its open on all sides and the back. Would my rx-a200 be ok in there, or should I add something like an antec av cooler on top? (Receiver is 7 1/8 inch tall)
The tv is wall mounted & I could use the top shelf, but I want as clean a look as I can get without using enclosed cabinets.

I keep mine on top of an A/V rack in the open, but my buddy who has an older version of ours has had his inside a cabinet for years with no overheating issues. I think your arrangement would be fine.

The ARM processor powering the network functionality in these receivers isn't particularily powerful. Displaying JPGs from most cameras these days would be painfully slow. Also since the UI is rendered 640x480 the picture quality would be pretty poor. To enable decent JPG support it would require upgrading the hardware in addition to updating the firmware.

Is yours like this?



I have one very similar to that and I keep my A2000 as well as a little media PC on the middle shelf. Works great and there's plenty of flow around both.
Actually I'd like it if the shelf was longer front to back because it was kinda tight routing all the cables to the grommet in the middle.

I have mine in a wooden cabinet that is open to the front and back with less than an inch to the cabinet on one side and equipment on the other. It has slightly less clearance than what you have, and I was worried because my previous Onkyo was much shorter and would burn up horribly. The Yamaha never gets more than slightly warm, so from my experience I'd say you should be fine, but mine seems to run plenty cool.

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone plugged a new PS4 into your RX-A3000? I'm running into a strange issue with DTS turned on. Audio in games tends to cut out after about 30 mins of use. If I look at the A3000's OSD, it's flickering between modes. Restarting the PS4 clears up the issue. A3000 is on the latest firmware.

Anyone running into a similar issue? Hoping it's just a SW/FW issue on the PS4's part.

If you're using HDMI there's no reason to use any sort of compressed audio format with games, whether the older lossy DTS format or the newer lossless DTS HD format. Just use multichannel PCM, it's the native format for games.

I didn't realize this. Thanks. Still wondering about what's going on though... and won't I still want DTS for movies?

I am thinking of going with the 800 series...I think the big thing I lose is the network capability, but honestly I don't know that I would use it.

We generally just use it for movies/TV and music listening.

For an average user, can anyone come up with compelling reasons to spend the extra $300?

LOVE the network capability! We already had a SiriusXM Internet Radio subscription, listen to Pandora at times and Net Radio is great. Listening to Christmas Classics right now thru Net Radio.

If you can squeeze the budget, go for it. You should have this unit for quite awhile...

I 2nd the above, and I also love the network capability web application so that Laptop, PC or Smartphone can control the device remotely anywhere within wifi range.
