Only DLNA (UPnP AV) servers. However, it's not uncommon these days for NAS boxes to support UPnP AV.

Hi,

 

I'm the new proud owner of a RXA2020. After the setting-up/measure procedure i find the high freq. way to much up. I've set the it to natural and this is much better in stead of flat.

 

I feel the set-up screws-up my B&W 604S3 sound. DIstance and level seems right, but the EQ??????

 

What do you think.

post #1443 of 1654
NeXT question. Can the 2020 decode a multichannel Sacd by hdmi input? Yamaha bd1020
post #1444 of 1654
Yes, multi-channel DSD via HDMI from a SACD is supported (there are tables near the back of the manual showing supported audio and video formats).

For the EQ, turn it off if you don't like it (set YPAO mode to "Through"). Or copy one of the YPAO modes to Manual and modify it (e.g. you could remove the higher frequency EQ filters from your main speakers and keep the lower ones and/or the sub EQ if you want to).

That's the problem with all these room correction system --- you probably bought the speakers because you liked the sound of them without EQ, and then the EQ makes them sound like different speakers. Room correction is more important at lower frequencies but not so much at higher frequencies (where it's just forcing the speakers to its target curve, rather than correcting the room).

And the good old tone controls (bass and treble) are still there too.
post #1445 of 1654
Thnx for the answers. I just did what you suggested, copy and adjust the PEQ and now is much better. I think I will do a measure again with Multi points.

Wow I'm excited you can decode multichannel sacd. I'm thinking of upgrading my bluray player and will get the bd1020 from Yamaha or the pioneer lx55

Network standby changes the behavior of the port!

post #1447 of 1654
Good to know.
post #1448 of 1654
Just did a Multi measure. After some fine tuning I'm really impressed by the results. Though all my speakers say large after the set up I changed the center and rear in small with 80Hz cross over.

I'm impressed by the 9 channel stereo DSP program. Very good for listening CD's or Trance music over airplay. Wow what a sound field.

Movies sound awesome in Dolby, DTS and ofcourse the Dolby and DTS HD programs.

But don't forget the Dolby PLII music program, or the Neo 6 music. Both very good programs for listening to radio (net of cable)

All the after a few days with this receiver RXA2020 I'm convinced I made the right choice,

Now thinking of upgrading to a better bluray player, that plays also SACD and DVD audio. The yamaha BD1020.

Anyone have an issue with not decoding TrueHD or any Multichannel? Fairly certain mine is broke.

It's been upgraded.

My old TX-SR805 had no issue decoding my setup.

What blu-ray player are you using? Check your blu-ray player's audio set-up menu, and see if the secondary audio is set to "on". If it is, turn it off.

With my 2020 I'm currently five apex speakers which are 8 ohm. I'm considering adding some bigger floorstanders such as the silver 10 as a stereo pair. They are 4 ohm. I'm assuming the amp would handle that seven channel setup easily?
post #1452 of 1654

Hello All, was wondering if you could help with an issue.  I recently bought a 1020 two weeks ago and have hooked up a Bose acoustimass 10 system to it for a 5.1 setup.  I also hooked up a Polk sub for a 5.2 setup.  Both subs only work on some cable channels on the HDMI 2 input.  Both subs only seem to work on certain blu ray movies on the HDMI 1 input.  Both subs always work on my Xbox 360 on the HDMI 3 input.  Only the Bose sub works when streaming music from my PC.  On the on-screen setup, i only get a display of 1 sub.  Cables have been swapped and YAPO has been run 3 different times.  Sound fields have been changed , still same issue.  Shouldn't both subs always run??  Thanks in advance!

post #1453 of 1654
The Acoustimass module does its own bass management, and the manual recommends you set all speakers to LARGE in the receiver. But if you do that then nothing will go to your second sub unless you are playing something with a dedicated LFE (the .1) track. So 5.1 games will send something to your second sub, but stereo (2.0) music or movies will not.

To make your second sub play with 2.0 sources, you should either set all speakers to SMALL or turn on Extra Bass in the 1020 menu. When a receiver is used with normal speakers it's recommended to set all speakers to SMALL. But with the Acoustimass module you will then have bass management being done in two places, which could make it harder to dial things in the way you like.

Only one sub will show on the 1020 display because it really only has one sub output (which is split internally to the two connectors).

Dont think it will be a problem. Set up de speaker impedance first at 4 ohm

I have trouble trouble trying to learn the remote of my Cisco settopbox. It just doesn't work. After going through the procedure of learning it says ok, every time. But when I'm trying to control the settopbox it's just not working. Tried it several times, but nothing. Anyone any clues, feeling very frustrated. All other remotes do work and I've programmed everything but the remote of the settopbox.
post #1457 of 1654
Another thing I can't get to work is the bookmarks in NET radio. I go to the webpage, fill it in, make bookmarks, but they don't come up in my bookmark menu in the receiver?
Hope you can help. Thanks"...
post #1458 of 1654
There are two schools of thought on that. If you set at 6 ohm or whatever it limits the voltage. Some say it is unnecessary and I'm in that camp. I'm hoping its plenty powerful enough to handle a couple of four ohm speakers in a surround setup.
post #1459 of 1654
Set the bookmarks in vtuner. Works fine.
post #1460 of 1654

Setting the speakers to small totally worked for the second sub.  Now I have no issues with it not functioning.  Crazy how the Bose acts like that.  Thanks for the help!  Appreciate it!

Please tell me how. I'm lost. Can I do it on the receiver, or do I have to go to the website.

it worked fine on the website. I made groups in the bookmark menu and that didn't work. Now it's fine.

I wished I had read this thread before placing 3 1020's in service. As I've noted in previous posts, we took a lightning strike and I replaced an 800 and 2 Denon AVR891's with 3 1020's. All the DirecTV STBs are new HR24's (100 and 500 manufacturers). They ALL demonstrate the random audio/video drops unless I set the STB to Native=OFF. While it's nice that I can again watch TV, it's all wrong in that the weakest component is doing the scaling. This seems to be a Yamaha problem as I've not had this issue with the previous receivers and previous models of STBs (HR21). I'm on hold for Yamaha support at the moment!

UPDATE from tech support call: No help and no acknowledgement that they've ever heard of this problem. I got the same advice as the OP on this issue. Try disabling CEC and/or fix the output of the DTV STB. Native=OFF seems to work....... I'm playing around with the Video processing settings as well in the 1020. I really HATE spending all this money on new equipment only to have things cobbled together. I think it's a side effect of the "gotta have it now" generation wink.gif

UPDATE 2: I changed the Video Mode to processing on the 1020 (setup -> video -> video mode) and removed 480P and 480i from my DTV resolutions (left Native=ON). The video drops appear to have gone away. Still getting occasional audio drops. The 1020 manual (pg 87) says there is also a setting for Audio Select and Audio Mode (per input) but I can't find it. Can anyone help????

Also, can the person origianly reporting this problem try what I've done to see if your results are the same?

Cable boxes are usually the worst place picture quality wise for conversion to 1080p. I suggest you get a new STB from Direct Tv after checking for a recommended model number in the TV programing or HDTV recorder sections. They should have something that will allow you to pass native resolution to the 3020 without problems. Native resolution from my TIVO Premiere causes no problems. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the improvement in PQ.

I'm still having random audio and video drops with my DirecTV HR24-500. Anyone have any suggestions??
post #1465 of 1654
It certainly COULD be the receiver but everything was just replaced after our lightning strike. The bedroom receiver with NO 1020 seems to be operating properly. If on the DTV box I turn NATIVE off and check 720P, 1080i, and 1080P for supported resolutions, turn on video processing on the 1020, the picture seems to be much more stable. This is strange because in this case, the DTV box should not be doing ANYTHING different between native on or off with a 720P source.

Couple of other interesting things I've discovered the past few days.

If I turn NATIVE ON and check 480P, the DirecTV receiver sends EVERYTHING to the receiver in 480P, as though that's the only resolution the 1020 is "telling" the DTV receiver it supports.

Side note, when pulling up the 1020 On Screen display, the resolution of the TV changes to the resolution being sent to the 1020 from the DTV box but the information screen reports the resolution to be 1080P, which is what the 1020 outputs again when you close the OSD. To try to simplify, ... 720P source from DTV (verified on front panel) is being upscaled to 1080P (verified in 1020 video information menu) and sent to the Vizio TV (verified in Vizio menu). When you engage the OSD on the 1020, the TV changes and reports 720P as though it switched to pass through mode but the 1020 information menu shows what "was" happening (720P -> 1080P)

Last summer DirecTV replaced all of our outdoor components, including the dish, due to deterioration over 11 years. (He came to the house to install an additional HD box when he noticed the wear and tear on the gear. There was no charge for the new outdoor equipment.) To paraphrase the tech, audio and video problems were not far off with the weather-worn components.

Might there be an issue with an upstream cable inside the walls (I had this problem with cable TV about 20 years ago) or a bad wall-plate connection inside or outside the wall?

I was referring to DirecTV components other than receiver boxes (read my updated post immediately above, which I was writing while you were responding).

Oh!

Other than the possibility of an intermittent wall or outdoor connection (or a defective new outdoor component), I am out of ideas.

For what it is worth, our Yamaha 2020 receiver and the DirecTV HD receiver connected to it get along just fine--no problems at all.

In fact, I will soon go to the theater room and enjoy some TV.

I hope you solve the problem very soon.
post #1470 of 1654
I'm convinced it's a handshake issue. What model DTV receiver and TV do you have? What to you have Native set to. What resolutions are checked? Do you have Video set to processing on the 2020?
