The "Official" Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A730 & RX-A830 Thread - Page 5

post #121 of 136

Any help on this??


I connected my PS3 to my aventage 730, and the input always comes to PCM 2.0. Eventhough the output from my blueray says 5.1 or 7.1 the input is still PCM. 

 

Has anyone gone through this issue ?

 

I am running an HDMI cable from PS3 to Yamaha's HDMI1 input.

 

Thanks

Set the PS3 to "bitstream" and not "LPCM".

The ps3 decodes in house, and outputs as pcm. I was never able to get it to say anything other than pcm 7.1 for truehd and dtsma tracks. Bitstream works for 5.1 , but that's it.

Bitstream will only output Dolby digital, not 7.1 tracks. The ps3 decodes those in house and the receiver will see them as pcm 7.1 when set to lpcm. Its the only way to get lossless from the ps3.

Thanks for the replies guys. I was able to get it working with changing the output to bitstream. It gives a warning that some parts might not output sound, but nothing of that sorts happened.

Also, the audio output from my lg smart tv some times gets laggy. I run an optical out for my tv to av4 of yamaha. Any thoughts on that.?
And my last question as of now is about the delayed playback when it comes to airplay. Any fixes for that as well??

I am running into one more problem with my HDMI. 

 

I am running Dish Network -> A730 -> TV. Sometimes, the screen goes blank momentarily and returns back. Has anyone seen this issue?

HDMI handshake issues with cable/sat boxes is common with all AVR brands. If the cable/sat provider does not have a firmware update that can resolve the issue, the work around is to connect the cable/sat box (HDMI) directly to the TV with cable/sat box (optical) to the AVR for surround audio.

Although true for the original "fat" PS3, the newer "slim" PS3 is able to bitstream HD DD/DTS 7.1 audio.

Just wondering, can the 730 ypao program determine if a Zone 2 pair of speakers are out of phase? In my case the zone 2 are located on a porch, and far away from the microphone. Does the receiver use the mic to determine phasing, or is it a determination made by sending the audio signal over the wire and determining the phasing that way? It is hard to tell, since the speakers are fairly far apart and when I listen, it just doesn't seem to get that centralized image, but neither does it seem to have that weird ambience when spkrs are out of phase. Also, since I am just using 2 channels in the main room, is it of any advantage to run the YPAO
Thank you.

Anyone have any thoughts about the 730 vs the older 1020?  Right now I can get the 1020 for only $50 more at Crutchfield.

 

I like the fact that the 730 has MHL, but that's about it.  I'd be interested to know how its video processing compares to that of the 1020.  I believe they stopped using the HQV chips that they used in the 1020, but I haven't been able to find any info on what chip the 730 uses and how well it performs.  I run all my HDMI switching through the receiver right now so I do want that aspect to perform well. I only watch Blu-Ray and 1080i cable broadcasts, if that makes any difference.

 

I know the 1020 has a little more power and has full pre-outs, plus a phono input, plus HD radio input.  Don't know that I really need any of those features but I would really like the extra power.  I am running Polk RTI-A9s up front and had them setup to be bi-amped with my old receiver and would like to do that with the new one.

I am also thinking of this same thing. Will 20W make such a big difference ? I am planning to trade my 20 day old 730 with this. Is it worth it?

Nope.

Hi everyone,

 

I've recently purchased a Yamaha RX-A730 along with a YWA-10 wireless receiver so that I can listen to net radio and stream music. These are currently being used through my D-Link modem router (www.thegoodguys.com.au/buyonline/D-Link_N750_Wireless_Dual_Band_Modem_Router_DSL-2870B?CAWELAID=1695483171&CAGPSPN=pla&catargetid=1678561558&cadevice=c&gclid=CKeSmuaJ3b0CFUd8vQodtxEAOQ <--that one). It's been working perfectly when I use it to play movies/xbox/stream from the iPad, however whenever someone tries to listen to the net radio and I simultaneously use my laptop/mobile phone/iPad, the net radio starts to buffer like crazy. I'm talking about 1-2 minutes, every 15-30 seconds of music played. It's getting quite frustrating because it means the net radio and any other electronic device connected to the modem can't be used together ever. Along with that, it random changes stations e.g. If it was set to 100FM, after 1 minute of playing, it might stop and the next time it players it will be 100.5FM.  If anyone could offer help or a solution, it would be great and duly appreciated! I currently have 3 mobile phones & 1 laptop connected on the 2.4ghz network of the modem, whilst the iPad and Rx-A730 are both on the 5ghz. The YMA-10 is about 4 metres from the modem router. The modem router is also 3 weeks old, I bought it because I was told that my old one was the problem and buying a new one would fix it. (I'm not exactly sure what information would be needed to rectify this problem, but if anymore is needed I'll gladly provide it.) Sorry about the long paragraph and thank you in advance to anyone that can help!

 

Thanks.

Hello All,

 

I have a 730 and am having problems streaming flac files above 24 48.  Anything above this resolution plays intermittently and the higher the resolution, the more intermittently the music plays.  I can play 24 192 off of the USB with no problems, but when the exact same files are streamed by the NAS through the 100Mbs LAN, playback becomes intermittent.  If I stream the same files to my PC through the same network, there are no problems what so ever.   The NAS is a synolgy 207+.  Any thoughts?

If you only watch 1080i cable and Blu-Ray, the video processing in the AVR is basically redundant. Just let the TV handle it.

What about 3D??
