     I have a Samsung PN60E8000 TV paired with a Yamaha RX-V473 receiver.  The way I have it all connected is all my source devices are all fed to the receiver and I have a Monoprice Redmere HDMI cable connected to the (HDMI OUT) port on my receiver that connects to (HDMI-2) on my Samsung Plasma...

    I am looking for a mid level center speaker for my home theater setup. I currently am using a set of JBL LXE770s that I inherited as my main speakers, and a Polk Audio PSW110 sub that I picked up for really cheap. They are all in front of the room under the projector screen. The room is a...

    I am looking for a little advice for bookshelf speakers to use in a 2.1 setup in a larger room and actually on a bookshelf. For 25 years I had these old Pioneer 3 way floor speakers, with 12 inch woofers on some short stands. Rated at all of 40 watts, they sounded perfect to me in my small...

    Hi all My Yamaha RX-V473 has developed a fault where the picture display on the tv goes all weird when switching between hdmi outputs (tv and ps3) It happens more often than not and will eventually correct itself when I switch between hdmi outputs 4 or 5 times in a row. I have since replaced...

     The first three months after set-up, my receiver would mute properly.  However, after some minor problems with Netflix sound (caused by turning off HDMI control) not playing to my receiver and solving that problem, I now can't get the receiver to fully mute.  It mutes down about 80% and 20%...

     I was looking to buy a soundbar for my tiny NYC apartment living room (12x11). My friends (I respect them as audiophiles) talked me out it. They suggested that I get a decent receiver and go for some bookshelf speakers and maybe add in a sub later on.   The basic gist it I am going for a...

    Hi, Can someone tell me if it possible to hook an active or powered speaker such as JBL LSR305 bi-amplifier speakers to the Yamaha RX-V473 receiver. I read through the manual of the receiver, it only said it have the preout for subwoofer and a headphone output. It does have the AV output but...

     First post.  I have the subj. receiver and up until now has worked just like it should.  I have my sat. receiver and PS3 hooked up to it via HDMI.  Beginning last night, when I make any adjustment to the receiver via remote (as in increasing the volume) it blanks out the TV screen.  Manually...

    Hey folks. My Sony STR-DG720 has done an ok job these last 5 years, but after doing some research, it appears as though I might not have made the best decision when I purchased it. Plus it's been doing some aggravating things as of late. And with a next-gen console (Xbox One), I'm getting an...

    Hi all, I own the setup mentioned in the caption, even though the question may be applied to any non-upscale capable AV receiver. As of yet, XBONE can only output 1080p and the Yamaha can only pass through signals up to 4k. Since it looks like there is no way to get xbox one to output a...

    Ok I tried googling this, but nothing posted anywhere so far. So a few days ago I bought Lego Marvel for the PS3. As we played I noticed that it appeared that the dark scenes and black areas of the scene seem to go from the deep blacks to a washed out grey. Thinking it was just the game...

    Which is the better buy? Denon E-300 @ $240 refurb or Yamaha HTR-4065/RX-V473 @ $200 refurb? In a bedroom with Monoprice in ceiling 6.5" speakers (only 2) plus Energy ESW-8 Sub woofer..Sharp Aquos 47" Mainly TV viewing with occasional Movie & Music. Both seem to be specked out about the same.
