That is normal and has nothing to do with your settings. Its simply telling you what kind of signal you are getting. If you check the info on enough channels you will find that the dialogue is not always -3 but it is on many channels.

Hello Yamaha Owners,

 

I'm about to go out and purchase the RX-V575 and very excited I am to. I do though, have a question I'm hoping you may be able to answer.

 

I'm going to run my PS3 through the AV receiver. Is it possible to have the receiver output the PS3 picture to the TV but have the receiver output audio from AirPlay or a CD input? I like playing Fifa whilst listening to music.

 

I guess what I'm really asking is what the AV receiver outputs to the TV when a non-picture source is selected on it?

 

Thanks, I look forward to joining your ranks.

 

Dave

"RX-V475",
"HTR-4066",
"RX-V500D",
"RX-V575",
"HTR-5066",
"RX-S600",
"RX-S600D",
"R-N500"

Note, i haven't tested every single feature of the web control interface, just the basic ones like on/off, volume, playback , and surround controls -- I suppose it's possible some of them may just not work or ever damage the receiver, but i consider that unlikely. Obviously i'm not responsible for that..

I've created a greasemonkey script to do this, and it is available here:

http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/182663


GREAT !! Thank you very much !! I will test it when RX-V475 arrives..

How to use this script ??

What is with this VERY important webside on Yamaha e.g. RX-V3010: ??


http://192.168.x.x/setup/

You can make the complete ! Setup in Browser ! Best Service ever..... possible on 475 ?

Hi folks,

 

I have the RX-V675.  Has anyone tried the remote control learning featured described on page 110 of the manual, "Programming from other remote controls (learning)"?

 

I'm trying to program the Yamaha remote to control other devices that I don't have codes for using this method.  If you're not familiar with it, it's the one where you point the two remotes at each other so that Yamaha remote can learn the codes directly from the other remote by capturing what it transmits when you press a button.

 

I'm following the steps:

 

1. Press CODE SET.  The "source" light blinks twice.

 

2. Press one of the input selection keys, corresponding to the input jack where the device is connected.

 

3. Use the numeric keys to enter "9990".

 

I can't get any further than this.  After entering 9990, the "source" light blinks 6 times to indicate an error.  It doesn't matter what input selection I try to program, the result is always the same.  Ignoring the 6 blinks and trying to complete the remaining steps doesn't work.


Has anyone got this to work, and if so, did you do the same thing as me?

post #487 of 1011

I think I just solved my own problem.  In tiny print in the manual:  "(RX-V775 [China, Korea, U.K., and Europe models] only)"

 

Does anyone have device codes for controlling the Cisco ISB7500 (AT&T U-Verse box) or the Popcorn Hour A-210 media player?  :-)

Hi - 

Just joined this forum because i found the discussion very helpful.  Sorry for the long post, but I'm trying to figure something out and am hoping you all can help.  (If this would be better posted in a different thread, please let me know.)  I just bought a Yamaha V375 (in part based on the recommendation of The Wirecutter website)-- I have an Apple TV and didn't want/need the networking capabilities of the higher models.

 

I'm replacing a Sony STR-DE335 receiver, which I had been using since 1999 before it finally started regularly shorting out last month.  I've been using just front LR bookshelves (JBL HLS610), which I also got in 1999 and which I always loved.

 

When I set up the Yamaha (and ran YPAO) I found that I wasn't getting the bass from the speakers that I had remembered getting from the old setup.  To make sure I wasn't going crazy, I plugged the speakers and CD player back into the old Sony to do some quick side-by-side comparison, and sure enough, the Sony was definitely pumping out more bass-- especially when I used the "Bass Boost" button (a very '90s feature).  I had become concerned I needed a subwoofer and that it was just my imagination that the old receiver sounded different, but it turns out that the Sony-- particularly with that "Bass Boost" engaged-- was cranking out pretty floor-shaking sounds, even though the speakers are "just" bookshelves.  

 

I've run YPAO a couple times, I have the front speakers set to Large, I've messed around with the graphic equalizer, and the tone controls, but even with the tone control bass set to the 6.0 dB max, I'm not getting nearly as much bass as I was with the old system.  (I'm not looking to replicate a subwoofer-- but I do want to feel the music.)  And the fact is, I had the bass dial set at neutral on the old system-- on the Yamaha, I was maxing it out and it still wasn't as powerful.

 

It basically feels like the receiver wants to force me to use a subwoofer to get a fuller sound.  I don't really have the space or budget to get a decent subwoofer right now, but more to the point, with the old receiver I was able to get plenty of bass just from the speakers I already have!  

 

Any advice?  I know the higher end V75 models have marginally more powerful amplifiers, but my understanding is that 10-20 watts wouldn't make a difference.  Do modern receivers just want you to use a subwoofer to get deeper bass?  I'd look towards a stereo amplifier, but I use it to watch TV and movies also, and I like the HDMI connectivity of the "modern" receivers.  (With the old Sony I was running l/r stereo cables to and from my devices.)

 

Thanks for any advice!

Can Anyone answer this question. I have the Yamaha 675. I'm running a laptop for my home PC has HDMI out but with no audio. Audio is through an optical cable. How can I get the video to be HDMI and the audio to be optical.
post #491 of 1011
Hey Guys,

I just upgraded my home theater to a BenQ w770st and added the Yamaha RX-V475BL to go with it. My question is do I need to connect my receiver to my home network to use the Android AV app or can the app connect directly? I put the Network on stand by, but the app isn't recognizing the receiver. The reviews for the Yamaha YWA-10BL were pretty bad and it looks too be an overpriced piece of garbage. If I can run the Yamaha AV App without the network I can just run an ethernet cable to the receiver just to run firmware updates as my router is in another room and remove when the update is done. Thanks for the help. I'm a newbie, so I thank you for your patience.

You have 4 scene buttons on the remote. Program one of them for internet radio (net may already be set up that way, or else it's pandora).

It has to be connected to the network to use the app. You could get one of these for $29 to avoid running a wire. http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-PA2010KIT-Powerline-Adapter-Starter/dp/B00AWRUIY4/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_5

Thank you so much. I've read that the Yamaha network adapter was not s strong performer and this seems to be a much better option. Thanks again!

FYI

In another thread it was mentioned that a user called Yamaha to asked what the difference was between the RX-V675 and the TSR-6750WA and was told they were the same unit except for the included wireless adaptor.

and the TRR-6750 that I purchased at Costco for $390 was a no brainer for me and so far I love it. It replaced my dead Denon AVR 3300

Start by selecting the hdmi input your pc is connected to the yamaha with.Then press option on remote. Select "audio in" on the drop down menu. Then select av1 or av4 which ever optical input you used.

Thanks. I figured it out next day when I had some time to play with the remote

Make sure the speakers aren't wired out of phase on the yamaha. Might want to try a different input for the cd player as well.
Does the fm tuner sound weak in bass? Listing mode should be as close to direct as possible (does the 375 have direct?)

I can try out the FM tuner, but I was pretty much doing a side by side comparison using the same source, connected the same way (with left/right RCA cables), with the same speakers.  After doing some more research, I think the issue is that I'm listening well below reference levels, and therefore suffering the Fletcher Munson curve.  I'm hoping to try out an alternate receiver that has Audyssey Dynamic EQ, to see if that (like old "bass boost" or "loudness" button) makes a difference for listening at low volumes.  (My speakers are wired in phase, but either way, the lack of bass isn't THAT dramatic-- that's why I think it's more of the low volume Fletcher-Munson thing.)  

 

But another possibility:  If I'm not using a subwoofer, does the receiver know to send the full signal to whatever speakers are connected (provided that they're labeled large)?  Or does it cut off the bass signal at the crossover point even if the sub is set to "none"?  It almost feels like that's happening, though I'm not sure.  

post #501 of 1011
If you have the fronts set to large and sub set to none the fronts are getting a full range signal.
post #502 of 1011
In my set up, I do not use a sub and the receiver has used LARGE for the FRONT speakers and I have not been able to change that to SMALL (which they are).


I am wondering if by telling the receiver that I have no sub, is it automacally setting the FRONT to LARGE?

Yes. Anything is larger than nothing. Since you have no sub no matter what speakers you use they will be set to large.
Dont think of large as a size as much as a signal choice. Large speakers will get the full range signal. Small will not get whatever is below your sub xover.
Ex with 80hZ sub xover. Speakers set to small will get everything except frequencies below 80hZ.

Well not quite

As I mentioned the FRONT were automatically set to LARGE and I don't seem to be able to change that, however the SURROUNDS are set to small. So perhaps I would want to go back in and set everything to LARGE.

My comment was only regarding the Mains. You can set the center and surrounds to large if you like. It will probably not make any difference.

Yes, thank you

That is what I found out.
post #507 of 1011
I just got an RX-V675 and have a few questions that don't seem to be addressed anywhere in the documentation.

1) Is there a multi-band EQ and if so, how do I access it?

2) Is there a "loudness" setting ?

3) Is it possible to completely program (via remote) the unit - for example, I'm trying to set everything from my HarmonyOne remote - like "2-channel, enhancer ON" for music and "Dolby ProLogic, Enhancer OFF" for movies, etc.

4) Will a USB Wireless receiver work in the USB port? Or do I need a repeater?

Thanks....
post #508 of 1011
1) Menu > Setup > Manual Setup > Parametric EQ

2) No

3) Try programming the Scene buttons

4) I dont know

Bond 007 - I'll look into these - Thanks!
post #510 of 1011

Noob here. Just got my Emp Tek towers. I hooked them up to my Yamaha RX-V475 receiver. Ran YPAO. Some results were displayed (distances), they seemed off by a couple of inches but I read on this forum that these are not physical distances. So I think that should be okay. I checked the speaker configuration in setup.

 

1) I see that crossover is set to 90Hz. I do not have a subwoofer. Hopefully that number does nothing in this case. Correct me if I'm wrong, do I need to change it? 

2) I checked the levels. Both my speakers are set to 0 dB. Is that normal?

3) EQ select reads "PEQ". What is PEQ? 

 

So the only thing I saw the YPAO do was get speaker distances. It did not seem to set levels (unless 0dB for both is what it ended up setting). Am I doing this wrong? Is there anything else I need to do? 

 

Piano music sounds great (but it sounded great out of the box before I ran YPAO). Orchestral music isn't great (and it didn't sound great before I ran YPAO). 

 

I'll let the speakers break in for a while, but I'm wondering if I am using the AVR correctly. Please advise. 

 

Thanks.

 

P.S: I must add that it is 10:30pm now and I've been playing at a low volume (btw, why does the AVR show -30dB for volume? I know that my breathing is around 10dB, so what does -30dB mean?).
