Welcome to AVS!

Might as well update, IMHO. It only takes a few minutes.

There are no major changes to the interface, unfortunately.

There is an "auto" notification function that should appear onscreen and you can do the update directly from there.

When I tried a network update last week it was not showing the new version (yet) so I downloaded it from the Yamaha support site to a USB stick and installed it that way (instructions are in the manual.)

go through the Information section. One if the tabs will tell you there is an update available. I did this a few hours ago on my A710. Heck of a lot easier than using the front panel buttons.

Oh btw, my daughter is having a sleep over party (in my man cave). It's great to be able to use to app to control volume and whatnot. She was watching a movie a bit loud for 11 o'clock at night. The volume adjustment war began. She said it was at 35, the app said it was at 16! She kept trying to turn it up as I was turning it down. A sudden switch to Internet radio at 22 got her attention that I'm not interested in playing games!

That's a great story. A mans cave is his castle!

I have a RX-A2010 currently running v1.08. I'm connected to the internet but the firmware auto-notification has not found the new version (1.29). I went to the Yamaha support/download site and attempted to download firmware v1.29 without success. When I click the download link (it's java), it only downloads an HTML file. I even tried it on another PC. Same result.

I see that at least some of you have had success downloading this file, so I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks,
Lee

Quick question: Is there a way to set my RX-2010 so that volume controls do NOT appear on the screen when changes are made?

For example, I often change the volume when watching a movie. It's moderately annoying to have it pop up on screen during dramatic points of a movie.

Only "moderately" annoying? smile.gif You probably didn't see how outraged some people were when the RX-2000 came out with no way to disable the volume display.

Likely because of all the complaints, Yamaha made sure it could be disabled on the 2010 and later models. Look for Display Set / Short Message in the Function menu, and turn it Off.

Wow, many thanks! Definitely going to make movies more enjoyable.

My A2010 automatically recognized the update today!!!! sucess!!!

Did you ever get the update? I just hit the info button on the remote and it found it. The entire process took maybe ten minutes over a wired connection.

It didn't come up automatically right away so I used the front panel to force it to check and it downloaded and installed right away.

Excellent, at least it worked, now I need to read back and figure out what the update covers:-)

CHECK THE UNIT’S FIRMWARE VERSION PRIOR TO THIS UPDATE
On the remote control, press the ON SCREEN button.
Select “Information” > “System”. Your current firmware version is displayed on TV.
If your firmware version is 1.29 or higher, the AV receiver is already up-to-date.

If not, conduct firmware update by following the instruction.

I'm finally playing around with my 1010, and I can't download the latest firmware (from a 64-bit Windows 7 SP1 machine). The USB-to-computer connection seems hopeless (nothing recognized), and with a thumb drive (with just the correct bin file on it) I get a "No Content" message. With both NTFS and FAT32. I assume the unit plugged in with the display off equals Standby mode; I start the process from there with the two buttons pressed. I haven't even connected the 1010 to other AV equipment yet. Help, please?

By the way, re incorrect HMTL file download, I found out a few days ago that that seems to be an Internet Explorer 9 problem and that Googe Chrome downloads the right file.
post #2149 of 2855
I gave up and ran my Cat5 directly from the wifi/router to my 1010. I bypassed the computer.
Same cable, no more problems.
My 1010 now tells me when an update is available.
post #2150 of 2855
But I don't have one of those, just a cable modem. I think I know someone who has a router, but that could be messy. I tried calling tech support, but was placed on a hellish hold. Edit: I see the unit's Ethernet port; it should download if I connect that directly to the cable modem?

Am I right that Standby mode just means the unit looks off?

Okay, after more adventures, I got it to work. Via USB thumb drive, not the Network option, which hung. My educated guess is that thumb drive firmware updating should be under half an hour for anyone's setup. Warning for the uninformed: at least for the 1010, only the "Straight" button on the front panel leads to the Advanced Setup; the button on the remote is a virtual trap. I have never had this much trouble working with a preassembled item.
post #2152 of 2855
The manual does show that you have to use the buttons on the front panel. But you're lucky you don't have to use the old CD method eek.gif.
post #2153 of 2855
And also make sure you have zone 2 off
I got hung up and had to call in over that once

Ah, if you mean the "Firmware Updating Procedure" manual, you're right, sort of. It doesn't "say" that, but the diagram shows the Straight button on the panel. It does not indicate the remote's button will not work.
post #2155 of 2855
It says "While holding down STRAIGHT on the front panel, press MAIN ZONE" in my version of the RX-A1010 manaul.
post #2156 of 2855
Yes, the regular RX-A1010 Owner's Manual, page 118. But I suppose they could have emphasized that it won't work with the remote.
post #2157 of 2855
Question:

I have the 810 and I'm using CEC for all my devices (except my cable box which doesn't have it). The problem I have is 1/15-1//20 times or so I use the speakers from the receiver instead of my tv, I lose the ability to control the volume with my other remotes ( but my receiver remote. Would this be a problem with CEC as I am asssuming, or with the A810? (It could be my TV but it worked fine with my BD player before I got it)

Any one else have these issues with the AXX10 receivers?
post #2158 of 2855
I can only get the receiver's volume control to work my TV remote about 1 in 15 times using HDMI CEC, so I'd say what your experiencing is just normal CEC flakiness that is hard to pin to any specific device.

Dicommect the Ethernet cable from the back of your computer and connect it to the Ethernet input on the back of you AVR. The cable doesn't know if its connected to a computer, laptop, router, gaming console, DVR, or a modern network enabled AV Receiver.

In the near future, buy yourself an inexpensive router. You WILL have a need for it again.

The Internet flows from your wall to a modem and them goes to the router., to be spread out to whatever devices you have or will have in the future. From the router, you can use 4 wired connections of your choosing (for me: DVR, PS3, A710, and a cable for when I need my wife's laptop in my man cave, we have we have about 15 wireless devices). The number if wireless connections depends on the router you have or how many connections you allow.

I am looking into getting a turntable to play my Mom's old LP's I grew up with and start my own collection of vinyl. I don't see an input on my A710 for PHONO. How would I connect a turntable and do y'all (you all) have any suggestions for a $300 budget? What type of turntable outputs do I need with this AVR?

I have to buy a new CD changer my old CDC-98 won't get over its hiccups no matter how many ways I try to clean the lens. Looking at the CDC-600.

Why is it when I play music files or CD's in the PS3, I cannot use any sound modes besides STRAIGHT or Pure Direct? On the info tab, the sampling is running at 176.4kHz. I allowed the PS3 to use all available frequencies via HDMI. I suppose this higher sampling rate is producing better sound than the typical 44kHz? I always though the sampling rate is standard on the CD? Why does the AVR lock out any sound processing such as PLIIx?
