The "official" Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A710/810/1010/2010/3010 thread - Page 77

post #2281 of 2855
Would this be the offical owners thread for the RX-A820? This model isn't in the thread title, yet there were a couple of post re the 820. Just want to confirm I'm in the right place before posting my questions. Just ordreed my A820, replacing my RX-V2700.

Thanks!
post #2282 of 2855
There's a 1020/2020/3020 thread, and there's a 720 thread, but I don't remember seeing one for the 820. So don't worry about it and ask away.

Anyone else ever have a problem with HD radio stations overmodulating?
I have a 3010, this happened to me last month and I did a complete reset, things were working perfectly, until last night.
This issue also causes the reception of stations to be worse (ie, not kicking into HD mode as easily as before)
I don't want to do a hard reset of my unit every month, is there something in missing, or might I have a defective unit?
Is there a way to use the "backup settings" to save everything before I reinitialize so all my labeling, presets, and speaker configuration is saved?
Or does this reset wipe ALL of that out
Thanks in advance,
Bill

You can do a backup/restore from the Advanced Setup menu, but I'm not 100% sure it will survive a reset.

If not, you can definitely save everything to a PC from the Receiver Manager (RM) application. There should be a link to RM for the 3010 somewhere in this thread, otherwise I can upload it tonight.

You can download Receiver Manager for the x010 models here: (link)
The file is called RX-Ax010_ReceiverManager_1_01.zip.

The documentation included is for an older version, but not much has changed. Basically you want to run it in Async mode, select your model, then press Upload to upload your current settings to your PC. Be careful not to press Download instead because that overwrites your current settings in the receiver.

Afer uploading the settings, use the File menu to save them on the PC.

To restore, just Open the file you saved, then Download to the receiver.

I've never used this version myself as I don't have an A-series model, but I think it should be able to find your 3010 on the network automatically. If not, maybe someone who's already used Receiver Manager can comment.

You can also do a backup from the web control panel.
post #2288 of 2855
What's the web control panel?

Either way, it sounds like I can back up my settings externally, and do a master re-set if this HD radio thing pops up again without having to sludge through 2-3 hours of retweeking
post #2289 of 2855
On the 2010 there are 4 options for the parametric EQ setting. They are flat, front, natural, and through. I have been trying to settle on which one I prefer. I think I like through best. Would be interested in what setting other users prefer.

You go your unit's IP address on your computer

Good point. Has anyone tried this, and if so can someone post the file that gets created to store the settings. It could be a good way to check things like YPAO PEQ filters, without having to go through them one at a time via the menu.

I have a zone 2 question,
I have set up my zone 2 as a "Rec out" workaround, so I can be dubbing a VCR tape to my DVD recorder while I am watching cable tv, for instance
Now if I have the main power off, will the unit still pass the signals through, with my previous unit, the rx-v3000, it did not

Thanks for your input,
Bill

Way cool, thanks!

My RX-
A820 is on order and it will replace my RX-V2700. I have three questions.

Does the YPAO do a good job configuring or does it require tweaks afterwards? On my 2700, I had to fix the cross-over and speaker size, so did a half ass job IMO.

I have a 3d Mitts tv, does 3d pass-through work ok? I need for the tv to detect that it's getting 3d so it will switch to that mode.

Using the current firmware - what are the main issues (if any or did the last update fix all known problems)?

Thanks!

am i able to download this for free? it's asking me to sign up and pay for some winzip application
i would tghink i could get this for free
post #2295 of 2855
Make sure you click on the right button, and you should be able to download it for free. Ignore any junk it tries to get you to download instead (make sure the filename is the one expected).
post #2296 of 2855
which button specifically, if you can help me out on that
seems to be a lot of spam on this site, and when i tries to sign up for winzip for free, it says i have to complete 1 offer....and i dont go down that road

unless there is another free zip file program i can get for free to get this ball rolling

When I click on the link I get some advertising, but there's a download button and it downloads the correct file. You don't need any special zip program, Windows can handle the zip file no problem. Are you sure it didn't open a new browser window with the Winzip signup? If so just close it.

So what program do I use to open/unzip the file?
post #2299 of 2855
Once you have the .zip file, just double click it in Windows explorer and it will open. Drag the .exe and the .pdf to any folder you want. Then run the .exe.

Thanks for the help!!!!!

Then make sure "Speaker Setup" is checked, which means that the setting pattern is one of the items saved/restored when you save/load a scene. You'll find that Speaker Setup is currently unchecked, so you have to change it.

I just saw the post. It makes sense, but where the heck is the "Detail" page?

When connecting a turntable through a preamp, is there a preferred input to use one the 710, AV input or one of the two analog stereo inputs? I bought an AT LP120 with an ART DJPRE2 preamp.

On Screen / Scene / Load then select Detail. Read pages 95 to 97 of the 1010 manual and it's all there.

I gave more detailed instructions on how to switch between two different speaker configurations in post in the RX-Ax000 thread. The first part describes how to set the two different speaker patterns, so skip over that if you've already done that. The second part shows how to switch between the two patterns using scenes.
post #2307 of 2855
Thank you both. (I had noticed the Load option, but didn't see the menu within it.) This also will help with the annoying volume differential between devices.
post #2308 of 2855
There's a seperate "Volume Trim" option ([Option] -> Volume Trim) that will let you set a volume offset on each input.
post #2309 of 2855
Yup, I already knew about that, but it doesn't work within the same set of inputs (AV1 HDMI vs. AV1 RCA). (I have the CD player and TV sharing, so that I can listen to the former while watching the other.)

Anyway, onto something much more complex: HDMI from a PC. I want to play YouTube videos on TV, but my Nvidia card doesn't recognize that the PC is connected to the AVR (even when it's on and set to the right input). Software and firmware are up-to-date. I see there are mentions of Nvidia problems in the thread, but not sure if any are specifically about my issue and how to fix it. Any ideas?
post #2310 of 2855
Make sure you've configured Windows to either extended or duplicated your desktop in include your receiver/TV as a second display.
