Yes... as mentioned by others a graphic volume indicator (rectangular black box with a white slide bar) will Pop-Up EVERYTIME
you adjust the volume in any direction.There is No way to disable the on screen volume display
. Love it or hate it... it's all a matter of personal opinion. Some like it, some don't care either way, some absolutely hate it. The good news it's only on the screen for the second or so you are making the actual adjustment then immediately disappears. Personally, it doesn't bother me although I think its pretty worthless.NOTE TO YAMAHA: I adjust the volume to a comfortable listening level that my "ears" hear... not to an indicator bar that my eyes see. Simply put... I can adjust the volume with my eyes closed. In other words... as a manufacturer, why you would hard code a feature that actually causes you to lose a percentage of sales. Please consider giving your customers the option to turn off this questionable feature.
FYI: I previously owned the V667 and now the V867. Both units have the on screen volume display. Some members have been holding their breath that Yamaha will release a firmware update that will allow us to turn it off... but I think the chances are pretty slim.
