Yamaha RX-A3010: First Impressions - Page 2

post #31 of 42
I'm so badly confused between the Yamaha A3010 and the Pioneer SC LX 57.

I have PSB Image series speakers. This will be a major purchase for me. Please guide me...

Thanks

Can you view an HDMI source from the receiver on your tv and listen to another audio source .......... separate audio and video? I could do this on some prior Yamaha receviers but have missed this on my Denon AVR-3808A that I have had since 2008.

Would you believe there's no DLNA for video! I got the DLNA Serviio software on my PC (Win7) and is shows all my folder and files, but they are grayed out!

I called their tech support (24/7) at (714) 522-9105 option 5 at 11:30 Thursday night and expected to hear a person from India that I couldn't understand (no offense, but 99% support is like that), but I was greeted by a perfectly speaking person.

As soon as I gave him the model number (never asked for serial #, date of purchase, whom I bought from, etc.) and explained my problem, he immediately said this receiver (RX-A3010) does not support DLNA video, only audio. He referred me to pg.85 of the manual which mentions DLNA for audio, but nothing about video!! I guess I wasn't the only one complaining about this simple lack of DLNA ability.

Would you believe after spending $1,600 for this receiver, it can't stream from my PC that an $80 Sony Bluray player can!

He also mentioned that none of the Yamaha receivers have the video streaming capability. Then I asked him how can they claim to be DLNA 1.5 compatible??? He said he doesn't know the answer to that.

My decision would be to give up this receiver (back to Best Buy) for one that's DLNA compatible, or continue to use my $80 Sony bluray player which work fine for DLNA.

Any suggestions?

No receiver streams video and if they did you wouldn't like it anyway, since receivers are buggy old boxes with outdated proprietary operating systems and porly designed GUIs. Use an HTPC or media player to do this instead.

Or your TV - most top and medium range new ones do this.

I also would like to know if there is any way to fix the slight audio delay in the second zone? It is driving me nuts on the pandora stream. It is worse on anything that is streamed rather it be iPod or Internet stations.

Hello , I am newbie here and just got my A3010 yesterday and setup all 7.1 ch speakers.

I need expert advice as how to activate main unit using remote control.

When i tried to use the Remote on off button it is switching off/on differrent zones but can not go to setup screen or On screen options from remote.

I can certainly access those from main unit without using the remote.

I am sure i am doing something wrong and may be this unit is too technical for me.. getting old :-)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Sometimes there's a zone switch on the remote control. It needs to be set to main.
