I need some help with my A720. Maybe someone had similar problem. My BDP (oppo) connected to A720 via hdmi and hdmi out from A720 goes to tv. When I put a disk in I have video and sound through previews and menu, but when I push play I get video but sound disappears. To get it back I have to switch to a different input and then back to input from BDP. tia

Go to the Option Menu and see if Audio Select is set to Auto

Then go to On Screen Menu, Input, your Bluray Input, arrow up, and see if Decoder Mode is set to Auto

I just purchased an open box Yamaha Rx-a2010 from best buy but when I got home I realized that it did not have the YPAO microphone. Can anyone tell me if I can use any YPAO mic or do I have to have a specific one for this model?
post #2075 of 2855
Hey guys, thanks again for the help earlier. I had to return the first unit and I received the new one after a day or two. The display works perfectly on this one.

I had another quick question that I was hoping someone could answer. I noticed that one of the features of the ax020 models was having a some video game mode that was supposed to reduce delay by 2 frames per second or something like that. Does the a2010 have anything like that? I will have my xbox360 hooked up to the receiver via HDMI and then the receiver to the TV via HDMI. Would there even be a delay? I do a lot of online gaming and wouldn't want anything affecting that. Should I just run my 360 straight to the TV with the HDMI and then run a digital optical from the 360 to the receiver?

Thanks

If video processing is disabled there shouldn't be any noticable video delay through the receiver. There is some audio delay, but it's likely not more than the video delay of your TV.
post #2077 of 2855
Thanks for your suggestions. I checked the settings, they match the ones you posted. Not sure what to do next. Now I'm also not sure it's Yamaha issue. Everybody praises OPPO but I'm the lucky one who had to return first unit due to completely dead HDMI1 out. It would never cross my mind that another one would have issues too. However I connected my Panasonic BDP to Yamaha, no issues. I'm at loss right now.

Can I safely change the impedance without disconnecting the speakers on a RX-A1010?
post #2079 of 2855
I know from just recently reading my 2010 instruction manual that Yamaha says to disconnect the speakers before changing the impedance. Not sure if you want to risk going against their suggestion.

Thanks, is there an easy way to do this (disable the processing)? Sorry, I'll check the manual as well, but don't remember seeing that as I was looking through it.
post #2081 of 2855
Thanks.
I couldn't find any cautions but did read to change before connecting speakers for the first time.

I've used the mic that came with my RX-A2010 on my RX-A720 with no issues.

Did you check the Audio Settings on the OPPO?

It should be Off by default, but check under Video / Processing in the setup menu (page 114 of the 2010 manual).

Yes, it was on auto and Yamaha rep suggested beatstream. I tried that too, didn't help.

Have you tried setting your Oppo's HDMI out to LPCM, and turning Secondary Audio off?

Look at the last post on this page

Thank you, I was able to find it stumbling through the menu settings. And yes, it was off by default.

Ok, next question, after I ran YPAO it came up with W-1 and told me that my connections were reversed on my front right Def tech 8060. They weren't, I had red to red and black to black on both the receiver and the back of the speaker. The manual doesn't say exactly what to do...it says that this error may pop up even if connected correctly due to speaker type and room type. So I powered down the receiver and switched the connections on the back of the speaker and then ran it again. It came back normal this time and all other connections were normal. I then made some speaker location adjustments and ran it again. This time, the front left speaker came back as reversed, even though I never touched the connections after the first setting. So, I powered down again and switched those and then ran again. Everything came back as normal. But now BOTH of my front speakers are connected with red to black and black to red and this is coming back as "normal". What exactly am i supposed to do in this situation? Go with what the receiver is telling me, or go with how it is supposed to be connected? I'm using Mediabridge premade speaker cables with banana plugs. They come with the red and black ends color coded, fyi.

i recently bought a rx 1010. Because I am in a rental unit, moving into new house in ~ 1 month, just connected 5 speakers to check the amps, and hooked cable box via HDMI, and the audio for the cable by AV1 connects( ? RCA plugs?)
I wanted to listen to FM, but get ZERO noise , sound , whatever. The antenna is attached.
I know there must be a simple reason, but as a hopeless newbie , need some help to get the FM working.

Would appreciate advice re hookup!

Well I have the 710 which is pretty similar I believe and have only been into home theater for a couple years but I can try to help you out. I think if you have the audio hooked up through the Av1 connections then you have to have the receiver set to the Av1 input. Are you sure the mute isn't on or Zone 2? Have you watched tv through the cable box yet, does that work fine? So if your cable box has an HDMI output then shouldn't you just run that into the receiver and not use the RCA audio cables? I have to be honest You though I haven't messed with the radio nor have I messed with a recent cable box with HDMI being that I don't have cable tv lol. Some of these questions might sound stupid but in my experience it's usually the simplest of things that cause the biggest most pain in the A** problems lol.

If you checked the wires and they are OK, then ignore the YPAO warning. Don't switch them just to get rid of the warning.

I can't get iTunes to work unless its through the usb input on the front of the unit.
I got the music on my PC working last night but no luck with iTunes.
Any ideas?

Ok, I switched them back. I'm just hoping that the cable maker has the cables labeled correctly. Not sure why that warning pops up. Is there anything I should keep an eye out for/ be worried about?

When I had that problem with my 2010 someone from this thread suggested running ypao using multiple positions. That cured the problem for me. Also, if you are certain that it is hooked up correctly, just leave it that way. That's what I did until I ran ypao in multiple positions.

YPAO thinks my center channel speaker is wired out of phase also. It is not.

"If all your connections check out okay, many times due to the acoustics in your room the YPAO mic may hear that a speaker is out of phase even if it is wired correctly.

In this case you would ignore the warning."

Can you be more specific about the problem?

The RX-Axx10 line doesn't support AirPlay. If you want to play music from iTunes on your computer via your receiver you'll need either an Apple TV or Airport Express.

Apple has iTunes working as a media server now?

I use PS3 Media Server or Windoze Media Player is always on by default.

I do have a question somewhat related though. Why does media play slightly slower through my a710? If I play through my iPhone (wifi), the music is normal. If I play media from those servers on the PS3, they play fine. Playing music on my Dish Network Hopper with those servers, it plays fine. So, what's wrong with my 710?

No, no they don't. And probably never will.

We've got our phones connected through WiFi as control units and the receiver wired to our PC.
iTunes works perfectly when connected at the front of the unit (USB connection, iPhone only) but I can't get it to connect and or play over wire our through WiFi.
There's got to be a way. I just haven't figured it out.
All other music works perfectly regardless or the source.

Sorry, I should have reread before posting.
I was looking for an excuse to try Apple TV.

Which is the ideal connection method for a subwoofer? For a low powered sub like the Def Tech Pro 60 (Pro Cinema 60 package), they recommend connect LFE & speaker connections, and putting mains (I have Def Tech Studio Monitor 450 bookshelfs for mains) then placing the receiver into 6 ohm mode. Whereas a more powerful sub like the Pro 800/1000 it is suggested to use either the LFE or the speaker wires, not both. Why is the dual method not to be used with more power?

Which is better? Doesn't forgoing the LFE connection negate the purpose of a dedicated .1 in 5.1 or 7.1 environments?

What about connecting 2 different (manufacturers) subs, one using the LFE and one using the wires? Would the phase switches resolve differences? Each sub would be in line with the mains.
