Toby,
I owe you a drink, or dinner. LOL
You saved me all sorts of BS the last few weeks.
Thanks again...Mark

I just aquired a 2700 and the remote seems to be working.. so I think it might be the IR reciever on the unit.

I just put in fresh batteries and verified that the remote is emitting signals to my MX-500.

Anyone know is there is any diagnostics I can do or how much it will cost to repair the IR out of warranty?

thanks!

Long shot, but I'd try doing a Factory Reset (p. 140 of your user manual).
You should do this anyway if buying a used AVR to clear out any previous custom user settings.

Also try the remote with the slider in AMP position. Many IR commands work on the AVR regardless of slider position (like volume, mute, etc..) but best to try it anyway.

Not sure this even applies or if it is even doable, but maybe look into doing a Factory Reset on the IR remote.
Maybe someone screwed up programming it and it lost/confused the 2700 IR codes?

Lastly, you could try adding a cheap (or even borrow) an IR emitter setup plugged into the back of the 2700.
If that works then maybe a $50 IR emitter device will solve the issue.

Of all the things that can go wrong with an AVR, having the IR control actually break is a very odd and uncommon occurrence.

I second Toby's suggestion. Make sure the slider on the side of the remote is on the AMP setting.

I dind't have enough time to check all posts ... maybe it was discussed before.

Yesterday I went into GUI to write down the settings of the PEQ on my RXV2700 to compare autocalibrations (Flat and Natural).

While I was writting I was playing some music... what caught my attention is that sometimes the settings changed automatically

Eg: I had freq 3.17Khz/Q=0.500/gain +5.5db suddenly the gain changed to +4.0db ...... Has anybody noticed this??? Does the PEQ is self adjusting according to what you're playing???

Not a problem for me, but just wondering if I was dreaming or what???

DISCLAIMER: I do not drink or use drugs... so, I wasn't high or drunk
post #5017 of 5350
I never saw settings change like that.
post #5018 of 5350
Such settings are static, they should not change.
Are you sure you were not selecting different Memory settings?

Yes, I'm sure.

The reason to go into the PEQ settings was to write down the filters used on each channel for different memory settings, then compare them and see if there's big differences between using "Flat and Natural PEQ settings"

I will try to make a video and post it...

Just an FYI

If anyone is thinking of a used RX-V2700/1700 or RX-V3800/1800, you may want to consider a NEW RX-V3900/1800 from Amazon.

$799 for Yamaha RX-V3900BL (Includes free shipping. )
$658 for Yamaha RX-V1900BL (does not include free shipping )

Hello everybody,
did anyone ever managed to use the IR remote receiver/emitter ports on the back of the rx-v2700?

What did you find out about those ports on the back?

- I do think the ports are 3,5 mm mono jacks
- the ports 1+2 are switched and simply connected to the builtin receiver in a row
- the builtin IR-Receiver is a GP1UD271XK (Sharp) operating at 38 kHz

I bought the 'Marmitek IR Eye Kabelverlängerung mit 2 IR-LEDs für Invisible Control, PowerMid XL / XS'.
Will they work with the rx-v2700?

post #5025 of 5350
mc,
3.5mm mono is correct. I only use the discrete IR input to control the 2700 from a Xantech IR emitter system.
I don't use the 2700 IR outs to control other devices, but your specs sound correct and the Marmitek should work..

Hi All

Have been a long time browser and user of this site and its threads, and am currently comtemplating a new RX-A3000, but in the meantime - tried to re-run YPAO on my (old) RX-V2700 over the weekend to do some re-calibration, and it would start sounding the test tones (twice) on the first speaker and then cause the speaker to shutdown and longer run the setup.

I've previously run the setup without any issues on exactly the same HT setup without any issues? If anyone may have any suggestions, would be appreciated.

Thx - Craig.

Check all speaker wires... maybe there's a short circuit somewhere

Same thing happened to me, I didn't connect backsurround speakers (just connected the wires for future installation); then I run YPAO and AVR was shutting down when testing back surrounds....

After a couple of attempts, I checked everything... the problem: wires were touching causing a short...

Good luck.

Thx Salvasol - that was the first thing that I thought, however as it wasn't shutting down the AVR just the speaker it was testing at the time (Front Left Surround), I moved passed this as the possible issue. I will however check all wiring etc for that speaker. Cheers.

I'm attempting to add a new Roku unit to my full system. I disconnected my LD player from the VCR1 input and added the Roku in it's place. I setup the Roku with "component" video and used it's optical audio out.

The Roku video is fine but I can't get any sound via the optical configuration. I checked things by temporarily using the composite audio and audio works for most things. It will not work when attempting to view Amazon material. I suspect this may be because the Amazon supplied movie material has digital sound??

Anyway, I'm still trying to understand why I cannot utilize the optical audio input with component video on the VCR1 input?

Is this a "legal" combination on the RX-V2700?
post #5030 of 5350
Really quiet here ! Picked up a HK PA-5800 Amp 90W X 5 (non-bridgeable) that I figured I would use to power my 4 "zone 2" speakers that are outside.
Figured it would take the pressure off the receiver when Im running both inside and these 4 outside. Good idea ? Bad idea ? Better way to utilize it ?

Now that my 70" XBR2 TV has gone bad, I am getting a 3D TV and also a 3D Blu-Ray player.

Question - can I run the 3D Blu-Ray player though my 2700 or do I need to run the video straight to the TV to do the 3D thing?

If I have to run the HDMI straight to the TV, can I then run an optical to the 2700 for the sound?
post #5032 of 5350
The 2700 won't pass 3D, so the video will need to go straight to the TV. You could use optical for audio, but it won't be lossless (although it will still sound very good).
post #5033 of 5350
If you want the HD lossless audio for Blu-ray playback through your 2700 I'd suggest you get a Blu-ray 3D player with dual HDMI outputs.
One to the TV for video and one to the 2700 for audio. Just verify the player can decode HD audio and send as LPCM/MPCM over HDMI.
I'd guess all do this now, but I'd double check to be certain.
post #5034 of 5350
I have had this receiver for several years and it works great but have run into an issue recently with some new HDMI devices. They don't output DD 5.1 over the HDMI so I am using the toslink and setting the audio input to use that and I select to save to memory. Each time i power off and back on the receiver it defaults to using the HDMI audio stream so I have to go back into the settings to change it to use the optical for audio so I get 5.1 surround again. Does anyone know what I can do to save that as the defaults so I don't have to keep changing the config every day?

Thanks
post #5035 of 5350
Look in the option menu under Audio Select, and change it from "Auto" to "Last", and it should remember the last selection you made.
post #5036 of 5350
I'm posting to get ideas to diagnose the problem and solutions... I haven't done anything (it just happened yesterday, but I will do some troubleshooting today, swap cable will be the first thing).

I'm using the preouts, and the right channel stopped working, it was fine because I watched a movie, next day when I used again I noticed that just one side was working; I thought it was the DVD, so I changed inputs (TV, radio, etc. and I also changed DSP modes) but it was the same ..no sound on right channel.

My plan is to swap cables to different pre-outs (to test speaker and pro-amp channel); then use the speaker terminal to see if the pre out is bad...

If that's the case, It's there an easy fix??? How much it will cost to fix??? Will a full system reset help???
Can I use an RCA cable to connect to the pro-amp with a bare wire in one end and the RCA in the other???

Thank you for all suggestions...

That's what I thought and it used to work but now it keeps reverting to Auto and using the HDMI audio stream. Very bizarre and I think I may reset to defaults and reset everything up to see if it will hold then.
post #5038 of 5350
I need sugestions.

I finished testing the receiver (RXV 2700) and i think the pre-out for the right channel is gone... it was working fine, then stopped working.

I tested swaping cables, and the speaker worked fine at another pre-out and speaker terminal, but not the pre-out.

Is there any easy fix??? How hard is to fix the pre-out???

Depends how good you are at fixing electronics. The Service Manual contains all the schematics, and procedures for disassembling the receiver. Since you have one good front channel you can use it as a reference and compare it to the bad one, which should help. I'm not saying it will be easy (and I can't give any detailed help).

Hi,

You can double the cables as I did for my DVD player. I got it connected via HDMI as well as the RCA cables. When I watch a movie in the main zone, it uses HDMI connection, when I want to listen a CD using Zone 2, it goes via analog.
