None of that sounds like it would cause any damage to me. Certainly not the Tone controls and volume level.
post #2552 of 3379
Thanks for your answer, also what bothers me even more is that the technician told me that it was one of the surround channel that blew, knowing that this speakers don´t emit that much sound, I don know what more to think about it.

Gonna try front presence vs back surrounds tomorrow..
One problem, Subwoofer is not kicking on, Any ideas? It is on auto. Premiere Acoustics 12 inch.

Does it work ok if you turn it to "On"?
post #2555 of 3379
Yes, It comes on sometimes on auto, but turns off frequently. I watched Captain America the other night and it was off for most of the movie, even during heavy action scenes. Xover on sub turned all the way up as per instructions, Volume at half.

What's the subwoofer level in the receiver? You might need to make it higher to trigger the auto-on circuit (and then turn down the sub's own volume control to compensate).

Hello Everyone, 1st post hopefully not the wrong thread

 

Kwaidonjin, I believe he was referring to the subwoofer trim setting

 

OPTION menu > Volume Trim > SW Trim.

 

Now my problem, I have a weird one with the receiver, I have a RX-V1073 (I guess it works the same as the V673), when I'm listening to any source (USB, optical input, internet radio, etc.) and I turn On the TV set, the audio skips/stutter until the TV start up process is done; same thing happens when I turn OFF the TV.

 

HDMI ARC is OFF, Control is OFF, ECO is OFF, problem persists no matter HDMI direct or processing, no matter the input on the TV, no matter HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 out on the Receiver, HDMI 1 audio and HDMI 2 audio are OFF.

 

Is this suppose to happen?

 

thanks,

What kind of sub do you have? A cable like this will double the signal coming from the 673.

I wouldnt worry about it. Sounds like a compatibility hiccup.

My 773 does the same thing. Since the audio is generally coming directly from my TV box to the receiver, I wasn't sure what the cause would be of a momentary break in audio when the TV is turned on. I have come to assume that this happens during the HDMI handshake between the receiver and the TV, although that's just a guess. It has never continued beyond a couple of seconds and become a real problem.

Not the crossover, the subwoofer speaker level (in Speaker menu / Manual setup / Level).

For example, if the subwoofer level is currently at 0 dB and you turn it up to +6, the receiver will send a much higher signal to the sub and that might solve your auto-on problem. But to keep the same amount of bass coming from the sub you'll also want to turn down the sub's own volume control as you turn up the receiver sub level.

If auto-on still doesn't work well with the receiver sub level all the way up to +10 (the max), then you can try other things such as the Y-adapter suggested by Bond 007.

Also, are your main speakers set as SMALL? If not, it's more likely there will be long periods in a movie where nothing is sent to the sub and it turns itself off.

my bad then, kriktsemaj99 was not referring to the sw trim setting. but he should definitely take a look at the sw trim if he ran YPAO; make sure it's at least set to 0, then the sub output level, then the Y cable if problem persist..

That's what I think right now, so I ordered a small tv set to confirm that.

I thought about it too, so I unplugged and plugged the HDMI cable (with the TV ON) to mimic the handshake happening. I couldn't replicate the problem On HDMI 2 out and ON HDMI 1 out, it was one tiny "lag" in the audio, So now I want to try another TV set see if the problem remains.

 

Thanks for your replies,

I have this sub: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1088734/premier-acoustic-pa-120/270

It has the red and white inputs, can I just run 2 cables from receiver?

About half way down you will see the pictures, except mine is Cherry.

My 673 hooked up to my Samsung does same thing.I get a green screen momentarily then all is good,same when changing chanels.
post #2568 of 3379
I set my X-over to 90 on the receiver and it seems to be fine now.

Raising the crossover will send more to the sub (when your other speakers are set to SMALL), and I guess in this case it was enough to make it turn on more reliably. But I would still check the subwoofer speaker level, and if it's very low you might want to turn it up.

My wii is connected to the component video input, but for the life of me i cannot get the video to display. I hear the audio. The wii is set to 480p. Tried removing the hdmi limitation and setting the res to 1080p. It just doesnt want to pass the component signal through hdmi. Any ideas?

I think the AVR will only upscale SD video. This is talked about earlier in this thread. So, you will need to connect wii with composite connection or either run component video cables from AVR to TV.

And I was going to say that the 673 will convert component video to HDMI, since the 671 and even earlier models would do that. BUT, the table on page 125 shows that it can't (except for 480i input). This is a strange step backwards for the 673 (not being able to convert 480p or higher to HDMI).

FYI from earlier in the thread...like page 2 or 3. Hope this helps.
post #2573 of 3379
Classclown, thanks. I missed that chart on pg 125. Sums it up. The wii has 2 settings, 480i & 480p. I assume if it set it to 480i it will work via hdmi out to tv. Yes, i agree this is stupid. It doesn't even pay to use component jacks on the wii then since the stock composite jacks will pass 480i. I have a 6 y/o pioneer amp that doesn't have this limitation. Oh well. Thanks buddy.

A lot of older receivers are more tolerant of older technology.

You could get a Wii 2 HDMI converter which might give you better resolution.

Good idea and reasonably priced too. I thought I had seen other people mention something like that but couldnt remember for sure.
post #2577 of 3379
Yes, I saw monoprice has one too. Might get that. Well, just as I thought, switching the Wii to 480i worked. It didn't fill up the entire screen though. Seemed like a scaling issue. Have to look into that. I fooled around with the advanced settings. Maybe I should set it back.

I can only offer a personal preference. I have found Denon to be more expensive AND much more fragile than the Yamaha. I am comparing the Denon 3312ci with the Yamaha AVR 673. The Yamaha 673 has a few less features (HD radio, 2 HDMI outputs, etc.). But it is much more difficult to configure and the authorized repair services leave a lot to be desired.

Again, I make these statements from personal experience. Other may have a different experience.
post #2580 of 3379

I have a new Yamaha rx-v673 output to an Epson 8350 projector and I have some questions I am hoping forum members can help me with in regards to hooking up the cable box and insuring I am getting 5.1 sound.

 

First off I have a 5.1 speaker system and a Charter HDTV cable box.  I am using a HDMI cable to carry video and audio from Charter box to AVR.  Do I need to hook up any other audio connections? Same goes for my Sony Blu-Ray, have it hooked up with HDMI cable, do I need any other audio connections?

 

I have only had the system hooked up for a couple of days and have watched a few sporting events and tv programs plus some HBO series programs and feel like I am not really getting 5.1 sound.  Several of the programs say they are broadcasting in 5.1 sound so I am curious what settings do I need to set on the AVR in regards to Straight Decode, Surround Decoder, Sound Program, Direct Mode, etc?  This is all foreign to me.

 

Also my Charter box has an Audio Setup menu and I am not sure if I should be changing anything in this menu or not.

 

Thanks
