The Official Yamaha RX-V1700/RX-V2700 Thread - Page 176
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Plan to use the receiver for sound mostly. Video connection will be directly between source. Feel the receiver is out dated in the video quality department.. Since it mainly for sound to power 5 Bose cube speakers and a passive bass module from an AM6ii. I feel its more than enough to power the speakers and a big jamo speaker.
Should I go for it?
so choices are
Demon AVR 4306 - £299
Onkyo tx-sr807-300tx-sr807- £300
Yamaha RX V2700 - £200
Pretty amazing actually. After all these years the 2700 still fetches a decent price on the used market ($300 US approx). Still using mine almost a decade later as my main AV system/hub with no need nor interest in upgrading. It just keeps on playin'!
Decided on the yamaha then. Will be picking it up tomorrow and Looking forward to enjoying it. Only Wish I signed up here earlier, would have saved me allot of time and money.
Unfortunately I wasn't well aware of Bose products until recently, learnt allot. As my first proper sound system I'm sure I'll be happy since I'll be upgrading from a 10 year old technics hi-fi . good for now. At least I know where to come next time I need help deciding. Keep it up gents!
Anyway the seller turned down the yamaha offer right at the end as she only wanted cash which Gabe me reason to believe something wasn't right all of this after she refunded my PayPal. Strange people.
So I have finnaly bitten the bullet and bought a demon 4306. Hope I made the right choice
Have a good week end everyone

It still functioned but according to him just no sound on any speakers (not sure if he ever tried the headphone socket)
Anyway my brother is not really interested in it and wanted to give it to me but he's taken it to a mate of his first who's a electronics repair guy
Just wondering if you have heard of this problem before or not
Hopefully it's an easy fix
Any recommendations appreciated
Over driven, crossed wires, electrical strike..... may be fried or just in a self protection mode. Could even be the user tried custom settings and switched around the input assignments. Who knows.
But I'd start with doing a Factory Reset and then Self Diagnostics as per the Service Manual.

That post says nothing actually. It als contains some links of closed websites.
Are there any release notes ? Why Yamaha doesn't provide a link for a firmware ...
It answers your main questions, whether your FW is up to date, what was updated, where to obtain it (Yamaha). You can search this or other forums for "0044" to hopefully find a newer link to the actual FW. Or I can email you the 0044 update with instructions, it's about 5 mb's.
I would appreciate an email with the files.
Yeah, just checked mine, same error. I never use the 2700 for internet radio anymore so I had not tried it in ages. Tried contacting both Yamaha and vTuner?
We (there is another thread in a german hifi forum) did contact vTuner and Yamaha, vTuner support today said:
Thank you for informing us, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
Some of us traced the traffic between the Yamaha devices and radioyamaha.vtuner.com so we could see that something happens, but not what´s wrong. Maybe it´s a "IIS/ASP thing" the older devices don´t understand - most important thing, it works again!
It could be helpful, if other Users with vTuner problems also contact vTuner and Yamaha support.
