On my RX-V1800, I have Zone2 all setup as a pair of speakers in a separate room. AMP=SP1 and the cables to Zone2 connected to SP1 jacks on the back. The Zone Control is DVD or CBL.

MY problem is that I have no audio in Zone2, is there another setting that i'm missing?

tks

Hi mbrault, Zone 2 and 3 on the RX-V1800 must have an analog connection (see page 111 in OM).

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

In order to play audio in zone 2 or 3, say from a CD player or even a cable box you need to use analog cables. Not optical or coax(digital)

From the manual:

Edit: looks like I was slow on the draw.

What is the part# on the remote?? I just looked and there is pages of Yamaha used remotes but they are listed by the Yamaha part#
I tried a RX-V3800 search but no luck but try looking for it by the part# or look in the manual some of the universal remotes (aftermarket) might work.

I did search around on eBay.com as well as .co.uk and .de and found a selection of Yamaha remotes that would probably suffice providing they were compatible. Getting a new original rav370 remote for the 3800 would have been quite expensive.

Luckily I didn't order one, though, as the solution turned out to be far simpler and cheaper: I've never given programmable remotes any thought and I assumed they were even more expensive than the original Yamaha rav370. Turned out not to be so, as the Logitech Harmony 300i only set me back the equivalent of $40 - rather cheap here in Denmark, although US Amazon sells it for $27.

Anyway, I took a break from work and bought it - spent about five minutes setting it up when I got home, and tadaaa, I'm rocking & rolling again. The 300 is not designed for AVRs, but it does the job right now and there is always the option of reassigning buttons as the need arises.

Thanks for your suggestions anyway; eBay can certainly come in handy every now and then.

Glad you found one that would work... I posted that very thing a few posts ago when I found a new 3800 remote for $61.00 on Ebay.

Just purchased a new PS3 the other day and connected it to my yamaha HTR-6190b (or RX-V1800) receiver via HDMI. For the most part everything is great but after 5 or ten minutes within the PSN store the HDMI signal/connection is lost and I need to change the input on the amp to something else and back to restore the connection. The main dashboard seems fine and PS3 game play seems fine exept it did do it once when my kids were playing a PSOne Classic game.

I have a number of devices going through this amp (Cable Box, XBOX, Popcorn Hour, Bluray player) and all fine so I am assuming it is a bug or defect with the PS3. Anyone else experience this? I search the forums first but did not see anything.

Hi everybody, I need the control codes (IR) to power on and power off the Yamaha RX-V3800.
I am trying to control all my Home Theatre components with UnityRemote but I still have some little problems.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have the two PDF docs that have posted in this thread?

RX-V1800_IR_Code_ST10.pdf
RX-V3800_IR_Code_EX10.pdf

Speaking of those docs, are there codes to control which EQ mode is active? I cannot find codes for EQ settings.

I don't think there are. As a workaround you could set up several system memories where the only difference was the EQ mode, then just load the memory you want.

There are RS-232 codes to select specific EQ modes.

I have been using system memories for stuff like this but thought maybe there was better way. Thanks.

Is there a way to make the AC power outlet on this receiver hot all the time, so that it's supplying power even when the unit is off?

No, unfortunately they are both switched, no option to change that.

Hello,

Has anyone had an issue with the HDMI not transmitting a picture? I had the 1800 set up with a Samsung television that is no longer functioning. I purchased a new Bravia this weekend that cannot get a picture from the 1800. The HDMI port on the television is functioning. I did an initialization on the video parameters on the 1800 to no avail.

Thank you
post #8294 of 8628
duke,
Try this potential fix: From your User Manual go to the ADVANCED SETUP section and turn OFF the Monitor Check function on your AVR.
post #8295 of 8628
Hi Toby,

Thank you for the suggestion. I tried that and it unfortunately did not solve the problem. I suppose it is possible that the Sony simply does not like the signal the Yamaha is producing. I have searched multiple sites/threads and have to seen anyone else with this issue. I will keep plugging away....

I had a similar issue with my PS3 and my 3800 that was solved with a factory reset of the AVR. One day after years of normal operation, I had sound but no video through HDMI on any port combination. Optical and component worked fine. The TV worked normally with a direct HDMI input. I'd try the reset.

Diito on a stsyem re-set... down side is I lost all my YPAO settings "after" used my SPL meter and manually changed some of the room correction stttings... I added more center and rear gain...wrote down all that info in case I have to do another system re-set( re sets the processor back to factory defaults) that just un pluging the power cord would not do. I finally found it in the manual.

I have the Yamaha RXV-3800 Receiver and I've been wanting to buy one of the Epson 3010 3D Projectors. I was wondering if when the signal is fed through the Receiver from an HDMI if its going to be affected at all and if it will process it ok.

I have a dedicated Home Theater with a 110" Screen and a current 2D Projector but want to upgrade the Projector but not the Receiver since I love my reciever and have had no problems from it.


Thanks for any help or suggestions for the 3D Projector use.

Hello, I have a Samsung UN55B800 LED that cannot decode DTS audio when a MKV movie file is accessed in mediaplay DNLA. I have the TV audio set to external to my Yamaha 3800. TV connected by HDMI #1
Is there a way to have my amp do the decoding so the audio portion of the file will play?
Thank You in advance

If the LED has an optical out, you should be able to connect that to your 3800 and the 3800 should decode the DTS audio. The 3800 does not have Audio Return Channel, so it would not be sent to the receiver over the HDMI connection. The optical will not do DTS Master Audio, but should do traditional DTS.
post #8301 of 8628
I plug a HTPC straight HDMI into the 3800, and the 3800 HDMI out to the TV. The PC says its audio is Pioneer (TV) 7.1. But my nVidia GT 430 GPU can handle DD, DTS, DTS-HD Master and TrueHD, so I get all that out of various mkv files I've made. I can also play BDs via PowerDVD Ultra 11 and the HTPC BD-R drive.

If you use the Receiver Manager Software you can back up all AVR settings including customized YPAO/EQ/PEQ and all memory settings.
Restoring all settings is a simple upload to the AVR.

I did not know there was Receiver Manager Software......... I will read up on this..... Thanks

This may be a really dumb question; my only excuse is having recent shoulder/bicep surgery with no tolerance for strong narcotics. Ouch !

I have an rx-v1800 7.1 setup with DTV/BRay/PS3 HDMI inputs and HDMI output to a Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000. Retiring the Bravia because lamp replacement is about every 3 months now. Great TV in its day...

Just bought Sharp Quattron 70" 2D model LC-70LE734U. This set refreshes at 120hz, combined with some backlight scanning, to produce a max of 60fps for fast moving images (not really full 240hz as the 240 AquoMotion ads might suggest).

The bravia can display 60fps primarily because each dot in the RGB pixel grid has its own processing unit.

I think that there is no need to upgrade the yamaha which claims an output HDMI passthrough signal of 60hz because the refresh rate is handled by the monitor and not by the AVR (and isn't part of the HDMI spec anyway).

So, shouldn't I be able to unplug the output HDMI to the Sony, send it to TV heaven and plug into the Sharp despite the monitor refresh rates differences (i.e. the AVR wouldn't be a bandwith bottleneck)?

I don't need stereoscopic 3D or ethernet over HDMI, so I believe the 1.3a HDMI of the Yamaha should be OK. The 1.3a spec includes a wide color space, but I don't think that the extra yellow subpixel would cause a color resolution issue that this spec can't handle....

Any thoughts appreciated--especially those confirming that the rx-v1800 is up to the task of supporting my new Quattron

Thanks and excuse any confusion over refresh and frame rates.

Ouch,
Eric

The 1800 will be fine with the new TV. The only formats it doesn't pass are 3D (and non-standard resolutions from a PC).

Hello all,
I am having a problem. I have had this receiver for about 3 years and last week the sound from my front Left and right and surround left and right speakers stopped working. The center channel works fine. I tried all kinds of things to try to remedy this but have not been successful. I am thinking I may have to replace the speaker output boards for those speaker channels. Can anyone give me the part numbers I might need? I took the receiver apart and the boards are two separate pieces so it doesn't look like it will be a hard repair.
Thanks

The 1800 or the 3800?
post #8308 of 8628
Sorry, rx-v1800 is what I need the parts for.
Thanks
post #8309 of 8628
The Service Manual will have all the part numbers. If none of the old links in this thread work I can upload it somewhere tonight.
post #8310 of 8628
If you wouldn't mind uploading it, I would greatly appreciate it. I can't find a working link anywhere.
Thanks


Never mind, I found it online. Thank you for the offer.
