       like all modern receivers Yamaha RX-V871 doesn't have a tape monitor loop allowing for the insertion of an equalizer. It has a pre-out but no main in. Am I whistling Dixie here?

    my former configuration was a sony str-dg820 and a set of klipsch quintet 5.1 speakers. this worked fine in my old apartment, but for some reason when I moved to this new apartment, it seemed that the output wasnt enough. when I played movies, dialogue was hard to hear and the sound just wasnt...

    I recently reconnected my HT after a move. Everything works except I cannot get a video signal through the HDMI output of the receiver. Everything else works: direct feed from Blu Ray, PS3 and laptop works fine with same cables into same HDMI screen input. Audio output from the receiver works...

    If someone could me it would be much appreciated. Here is my scenario: I have a Yamaha RX-V871 and I'm trying to get my in-wall subwoofer hooked up. I bought a Dayton APA150 power amp ( http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=300-812 ) to power my subwoofer since my sub is not...

    the volume in Zone 2 is "fixed." Hence, I can't adjust it. How do I unfix it?

    Just bought a Yamaha RX-V867 because I need two HDMI OUT jacks. One is to feed digital video to my HDTV (with no audio needed), and the other is to feed digital audio to a downstream audio processor (with no video needed). I currently have a V863 but it only has a single HDMI OUT. Well, the...

    I just returned an Onkyo TX NR609 which I now regret from a sound quality standpoint and ease of use. The video stutter and dropped frames drove me crazy so it was necessary. The Yamaha will occasionally not startup sound via HDMI when the amp is turned on. A simple shutdown and restart...

    Topic Both are same price on Newegg and Amazon, anyone know what the difference is? The features list on both sites don't explain much.

    I had a chance to pick up a Yamaha RX-V871 from Costco before they stopped carrying them. Problem was, I didn't have time to unbox it. Now I have time, but: Does anyone have an opinion on the advantages/disadvantages of moving from the RX-V2300 to the RX-v871? HDMI? Quality of amplifiers...

    This is a second try from a complete noob.... I am trying to decide what receiver to buy to power a pair of Polk Audio monitors (that I haven't bought yet...). Planning to expand in the next few months to years. I would listen mostly to music streamed from a NAS or PC. Warranty is not an...

    I recently purchased a yamaha rx-v871 receiver and would like to keep my sony str-da7es. I have the 871 connected through the da7es 7.1 multi channel inputs. I set the 871 volume to 0db and control volume with the da7es. Am i doing this correctly? How do i set up surround volume for the yamaha...

    I'm not sure I understand enough to know the differences. Anyone have any insight? They both seem to have what I want in a receiver. BTW, I care about music first and home theater second.

    Will the V871 allow one to search (via TV GUI) a (Ethernet attached) NAS to find and select a movie (e.g. MKV Blu Ray format) to stream through to the HDTV? If so, are there any limitations? Scanning Yamaha website and manual don't provide any clarity on this.

    Is it possible? I haven't found a setting. I have a PC hooked up to an HDMI input (DVI to HDMI cable), but am having to use analog for audio to the AVR. I get sound just fine through the AVR to its speakers, but it doesn't pass the audio through HDMI to the TV when the AVR is turned off like...

    I have never had a receiver or pre/pro that was capable of bi-amping. Looking through the Yamaha manual I see that this receiver can indeed bi-amp. And since I have only a 5.1 setup at the moment it seems like something I should do. Is it worth the time and effort? Thanks! gl

    I was thinking of upgrading to Pandora One, mainly for the higher bit-rate. But, it is not clear to me whether I will get the 192Kbps rate when listening via my receiver. How about when I listen via my iPhone? One other thing, on the web Pandora has Genre stations. Anyway to make those...
