the fact that you're putting a receiver in a closet should warrant some kind of cooling....

Or is it that YPAO will configure it the same way regardless? Thanks!

I don't know. I'm not sure if YPAO even tries to calibrate Zone B speakers. (My recevier is a 473 which is 5.1-only.) As for telling the receiver that you are bi-amping when you're actually connecting separate speakers, I'm not sure if that's a good idea to start with. Maybe ask in the speaker forum for opinions on that before you try.

Ok, new home theater set up, with 7.1. I am using a Windows PC with tuner card capable of surround for my TV/DVR. I am sending the signal from the PC to the Yamaha through HDMI.

So, my issue is some shows sound tinny in surround mode. For example, America's Got Talent--all local news breaks, commercials sound fine or have surround. When the show comes back on, it is terrible audio. I correct it by hitting the "music" button, 7 or 2 channel stereo. Any suggestions?

Hey guys! New user to the forums and a new owner of the RX-V675

Quick question, hopefully someone has an answer to: I have everything hooked up and it's running great. I decided to test out the Wii (which is running via Component). I have the video to AV1 and Audio to Audio 1. When I select AV1 on the controller (and change the Audio to Audio 1), all I get is audio. Does this unit not support component video through HDMI? Or would a setting not be set correctly? Latest firmware is installed on the unit. Just curious because this worked on my older Onkyo system.

Thanks for the help!

It will work if the wii outputs 480i through component. No other resolutions will work unless you use the component output from the yamaha.

That's right it only supports 480i and above. Purchase a adapter.

OR connect directly to TV. Bit of a pain.That's why I purchased the Denon 1913.

Another recent RX-V675 owner here.

Anyone had problems with getting the AV Receiver app for iPhone/iPad to work? My receiver is connected to my network via Ethernet and I can stream Pandora and download firmware udpates without problems, but the app can't connect to the receiver from either my iPhone or iPad. I also can't get Airplay to work; the receiver isn't listed on my Apple devices for Airplay sharing. My wi-fi works, though...

I tried turning DHCP off but then I couldn't even connect to Pandora.

I feel like such a networking newb...

Edit: I found the receiver's IP address and plugged that into the AV Receiver app, so they work just fine now. I still can't get my Apple devices to see the receiver as an Airplay device, though...

Have you enabled Network Standby on the receiver?

Ahhh. I think it's still set to 480p from the previous receiver. I'll have to go in, revert and give that a go. Thanks for the heads up guys!

Just curious I was looking at the 675, and I am very interested in the denon for this feature, but someone mentioned to look at yamaha as well, can anyone tell me if such a feature or method exists on the 675?


" A "Video Select" function, accessed via the OPTION button on the remote, allows you to listen to a USB/Tuner/Network audio source while watching a separate video source (including HDMI inputs!)"

Yes. I watch cable tv while listening to Pandora all the time.

Do you know what this feature is called or where I may look it up in the manual to see how it works?

thanks for the response by the way.

I have an RX-V575 hooked up to a Panasonic 55VT60 TV, and I can't seem to get Audio Return Channel (ARC) to work. I've got the HDMI out from the receiver plugged into HDMI2 (marked ARC) on the TV. I've enabled HDMI Control on both the TV and the receiver and set up the receiver to use ARC, but I get no sound on the return channel. Panasonic tech support says it must be something wrong with the receiver or its settings, but I've seen a couple other reports online from people who can't get this combo to work either. Anybody have any suggestions for other things to try? Is this a known incompatibility? I'm using S/PDIF optical instead and that's fine, but I'd prefer to minimize extraneous cables, avoid potential lip-sync issues, etc., if possible.

Thanks for any pointers!
post #226 of 1035
ARC can be finicky. Have you tried turning things on in a different order?
post #227 of 1035
Thanks, Bond 007 -- I'll try that this weekend when I have some time to fiddle with it. I think I should probably disconnect all other HDMI devices like I did when I initially tried it just to be sure nothing else is interfering.

Quick question on the differences between the models: Is there any big difference in the sound quality on the same settings between a 375 and a higher number model?

My old Yamaha 663 just expired and I need to replace it. However, I barely use any of the advanced features so in terms of features the 375 would be more than sufficient for me.

Yesterday, I picked up a Pioneer VSX-527 instead, but I really don't like the way that it sounds with my speakers. Would a Yamaha 375 be a suitable replacement for the 663? Or would I need to get a higher number model to approach the same sound quality?
post #229 of 1035
When watching a blu ray disc (Oppo 103) my player decides DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD, it says it on the display actually. Now when this signal goes to my RX-V475, my 475 will automatically decide the right audio?? It's connected by hdmi of course. I just want to make sure I understand that correctly. Thanks.
post #230 of 1035
The receiver can only process what the player sends.

If you have set the Oppo to decode and send PCM, then the receiver will show a PCM input and proceed accordingly.

If you set the Oppo to bitstream, then it will send whatever encoded track you select on the disc. Your receiver display will show the codec the player is sending and the AVR will use the corresponding decoder to produce the exact same PCM as the Oppo.
post #231 of 1035
Thanks BIslander,
I do see PCM on my receiver when a blu ray is in. Great.

For the first time that I know of the bottom of the line Yamaha (375) has discrete amp configuration for 2013. I doubt you will notice any significant difference in sound quality unless you went much higher (6 series or above?).

He's right. I had all three for a test. Besides the "tacky" spring loaded rear connections and, if you don't need all the "add ons", its great for the price. IMO the 475 is the best bang for the buck 5.1 channel receiver. The only downside is poor GUI. But then I don't spend all day looking at that.
IMO all the budget amps sound similar. Some sound better than others, by a small margin, depending on the calibration.

Thanks guys. The 375 is about $350 here, but the 475 is about $600. Not really worth the difference if the sound quality is going to be the same.

Maybe I just haven't found a sound setting on the Pioneer that I like. I'll have to have a play on the weekend to see how much I can adjust them. I basically had the Yamaha on 7ch Enhancer for just about everything smile.gif

I have a Yamaha RX-V375, and want to hook an amp to it, but it only has a LFE pre out, and the only amps that have LFE inputs are panel amps. Is There any way I can hook an amp that doesn't have LFE inputs up to it?

There is no practical way to connect the 375 to an external sub amp other than its LFE out, at least not to play any digital or multichannel sources. While the AV OUT and AUDIO OUT jacks do output line-level audio, it's only from analog sources.

More importantly, what kind of inputs does your sub amp have? If it's stereo RCA, you can always just use a Y cable from the LFE output.

right, yea I was going to try the regular audio out, but then read in the manual it doesn't work if your using hdmi. I don't have an amp yet, but am planning to get one to run a subwoofer off of. however, getting a 1000+ watt amp with lfe is near impossible. you said I could split the lfe and connect to regular rca tho? if I do that, would the receiver still control the crossover and volume? or would I have to set it on the amp?
post #240 of 1035
The receiver will control the crossover and you can tweak the volume, but you'll have to adjust the gain on the sub amp as well (which is true of any home theater subwoofer).
