FYI,

There are numerous references within the DVP-CX995V User Manual(pdf) in regard to HDMI and SACD. Here are two:

If you are connecting to an HDMI/DVI input jack
Use a certified HDMI cord (not supplied) to enjoy high quality digital picture and sound through the HDMI OUT jack.
Note that Super Audio CD sound is not output from the HDMI OUT jack.

(p. 18)

- and -

Note
Super Audio CD audio signals are not output from
the DIGITAL OUT (COAXIAL or OPTICAL)/
HDMI OUT jack.

(p. 22)

Sorry for the bad news with HDMI, although it looks like you could easily hook it up to the A3010 using analog connections.

In the manual it talks about doing this for music stored on a PC but technically that could be different than DLNA.


Thanks.

Hey, did you ever get a response? My main goal is to have an amp that will read my DAAPD NAS server (iTunes service) via it's own display. I want to be able to browse a playlist or artist or genre without turning on a computer or my TV (and I don't have a smartphone!). My NAS runs 24x7 and my iTunes clients can all read from it - so ideally the amp would too.

I've been desperately searching for some vide of the 820 in action - browsing a network for tunes..

Anyone? Buehler?
post #2615 of 2855
It's not going to work with an iTunes server I'm afraid.
iTunes to my understanding doesn't support DLNA. Remember almost everything they do is proprietary.

The NAS is kind of tricking other machines into thinking it's another computer I guess 'Home Sharing' or something.

You might want to try an Apple TV. Don't know if it'll work with the NAS. But I do know you can playback all your purchases from the cloud.

Edit: I see you don't want to turn on your TV so I got nothing. wink.gif

That is correct. An iTunes server and a DLNA server are two different things. The 820 only supports DLNA and Airplay.

The good news: many NAS units can run both an iTunes server and a DLNA server.

If the OP's NAS can also run a DLNA server, pointed to the same media library on the NAS as the iTunes server, then the 820 could stream using DLNA (i.e. the "PC" input on the 820). Although the OSD on Yamaha AVRs will easily navigate the directories from the DLNA server, the Yamaha App (iOS/Droid) IMHO works spectacularly for this purpose as it does not require the TV to be turned on. Navigating a browser to the AVR's IP address will provide similar capability using virtually any device (PC/Pad/Phone/TV) with a screen.

Alternatively media can be "pushed" to the 820 using Airplay from a computer running iTunes or an iOS device.

Thanks guys, that's really helpful!

I will look into installing a DNLA server on my NAS, I'm pretty sure I can do it reasonably simple (it's running Debian and I have root access). While I will lose the playlists I have been hunting and I suspect there's nothing out there that does exactly what I want. The 820 gives lots of alternatives - so at least if my PC is on I can "push" to it using iTunes or use the web browser (that's nice!). DNLA service will be a fun little project.

All that said, just bought one! Can't wait!

What firmware version is the most up to date?

For which model? (Each one is on a different revision #.)

Hint: everything is listed on the Yamaha support site. Enter the full model # (example: RX-A2010) and you are good to go.

3010
I only had 1.29
Says I should have 1.37
Any idea why it wasn't automatically detected that I needed to upgrade?

What did this latest upgrade do?

Thank you for the information do you have any idea why it wasn't automatically detected I am connected to the network

NP. Not sure about why your AVR didn't recognize the new FW available. Perhaps, your internet/network was down at that moment, or something in your firewall prevented the receiver to connect with Yamaha's servers. I'm not really sure to be honest with you.

I have the 2010 and have had to update my firmware manually at least twice. In each case, it never saw the update on its own -- and I checked to ensure that it's set to look for it.
post #2625 of 2855
I notice with the iPhone than when I am streaming songs using Yamaha app that I can't fast forward or rewind within a song.

however if I use the Panasonic version of the app I can do that (viera link to my tv)

this is a limitation of the Yamaha app?
post #2626 of 2855
I'm I the only one that wishes that my receiver had a switched outlet in the back? I kind of miss being able to have my power supply, a Panamax, be turned on whenever my receiver is turned on. In steady of always on
why did they get rid of this?
post #2627 of 2855
Could be the cost saving, but also a safety issue. People tended to plug things into the switched outlet that exceeded its capacity (e.g. a powered sub).

You can use the trigger output and make a simple relay for about $20. I did.
post #2629 of 2855
I've never messed with the trigger relays
How do u do it?

You just need a 12-24 volt relay that switches 120 volt. And preferably a matching socket. No soldering.
You then take a 3.5mm mono cable, cut and strip one end and wire it to the transformer low voltage side of the relay.

I'm using two I built. One for zone there's amp that doesn't have a trigger. And another for rack fans.

I find this stuff at my local electronic surpluss store.
post #2631 of 2855
Did anyone noticed after firmware 1.37 the RX-A3010 takes a few seconds to start decoding an audio codec? In some Blu-Rays it could take up to 2 seconds to start to output audio( usually in the Paramount, Fox, etc trailer opening). This is very annoying. Do you know if I can downgrade the firmware?
post #2632 of 2855
You should be able to downgrade via the USB update method, if you can find a copy of an older firmware file.

Hello my friend!! How are you? I didn't find the microcontroller code for you... :-(

Thanks for replying. I think I have the 1.12 version somewhere. Do you have the RX-A3010? Did you noticed this problem after firmware 1.37?
post #2634 of 2855
Afraid I don't have the 3010, but people have reported that other models will accept old firmware versions via the USB update method.

And no problem about the microcontroller code. I could tell from the partial register spec which bit controlled the video clipping on the V1800, but it's a moot point now since Yamaha fixed the problem anyway.
post #2635 of 2855
Couple of days ago, I came back from work and found that my sat box and 2010 receiver don't turn on. Both were protected through surge protecter. However, the coaxial cable was not. Sat box was on at that time and receiver and tv were in standby mode. I believe the surge came through due to lightening as my other sat box are not working saying that they don't get signal from lnb.

I tried to switch on the set using power button on for more than 10 sec as per manual without luck. The small ceramic fuse near power inlet is working fine . What do guys think can be wrong? Just by peeking inside, I don't see or smell any fried components. I have to send it 200 miles for repair. It is under warranty but I doubt they would cover lightening damage. Is it worth it get it fixed ? I mean the repairs would be cheap option or just start looking to buy something new....

Thanks
post #2636 of 2855
I have a Comcast X1 STB that I have bypassed from my Panamax power conditioner and its coax surge protection. Was doing some trouble shooting.
Need to hook it back up ASAP.

I'd definitely want to get it repaired if it were mine.
post #2637 of 2855
How is the comcast X1? Did they charge extra for it or did you just exchange your old box for it?
post #2638 of 2855
Hi folks,

So I've just stepped into the stereo Twilight Zone. Flipping my RX A800 on this morning only the right channels of all my speakers are working. And the centre and the sub is fine. My front left, surround left, and rear left are all not working. It feels like the "balance" is turned all the way to the other side, except that there is no balance knob or setting (that I know of).

I have tried some troubleshooting already. I have run a tone test and get sound to all speakers so wiring is fine and verified. And why would wires suddenly just disconnect? They don't normally, so that's not it. I have rerun the YPAO and again the testing was fine all speakers responding with the signals. But when I go to listen to music or tv still just sound on the rights, centre and sub.

That's all I have.

This is the "ten" thread, but it is a well read and responded thread so please forgive this misplaced post.

Any thoughts people? What happened to my lefts?
post #2639 of 2855
What sources are you using and how are they connected to the receiver?
post #2640 of 2855
Hi Ross,

The sources are HDMI with the TV and DVD and iPod through whatchamacallit jacks (red and white audio jacks with 3.5mm connector).

The blue ray is hdmi, i'll test it too now.
