Hello all.
Is it possible to save scenes with different dolby upmixer settings?
Like scene 1 with center spread on for music and scene 2 center spread off for movies?
I tried but it did not work as I wanted.

No, unfortunately. This has been an issue which was raised years ago, but was never 'fixed' by Yamaha.

Also can't save your preferred choice of UpMixer (Dolby Surround or Neural:X), as all are just saved under the 'Surround Decoder' master menu.

As shown on page 82 of the manual, the choices in the Surround Decoder menu are:
(1) the Auto setting, which uses the Dolby Surround Upmixer ("DSU") for everything other than DTS tracks, and uses the DTS Neural:X upmixer for DTS tracks. (Both the DSU and Neural:X use the height channels.)
(2) Use the DSU for everything.
(3) Use DTS Neural:X for everything.
(4) Use DTS Neo:6 Cinema for everything (this does not use the height channels).
(5) Use DTS Neo:6 Music for everything (this does not use the height channels).

I like Neural:X better than the DSU - even for Dolby tracks - so I keep the Surround Decoder set to Neural:X (the third choice), and - if you've used the Surround Decoder more recently than any other DSP setting - you can toggle it off and on using the Straight button on the remote, which displays what you've just chosen at the bottom center of the screen for a moment after you've tapped that button.

That covers just about every surround permutation except for memorizing center spread choices for stereo sources by scene mode.

Personally, I play stereo sources using "9 channel stereo" ("car stereo" mode) whenever I get annoyed by the effect of matrix decoding on stereo music, though I find Neural:X works well for stereo music much of the time.

Has anyone tried running 2 displays through the A3070?

I currently have a projector hooked up to HDMI out 2 (BenQHT5550) on a 20 ft non active HDMI cable.

I'm trying to connect an LG CX at the front of the room to HDMI out 1, using a 60 ft active cable from monoprice.

Whenever I connect the TV, the receiver won't sync and neither will display anything.

Note that ARC is turned on both on the TV and receiver.

I previously had a 40 ft non active HDMI connected to the TV and it didn't prevent the 2nd display (projector) from working, I only could get audio passed through.

Haven't gone troubleshooting much, I don't want to accidentally fry an HDMI port. Hoping I can still get this config to work.

UPDATE: The cable itself seems to work, I plugged my UB420 directly to the TV and it worked fine.

Has anyone run into an issue where HDMI 4 through 7 aren't working? Nothing has changed in my setup, but no devices work plugged into those inputs.

The receiver is outputting from both output 1 or 2, but there's no input signal and the HDMi "in" indicator doesn't appear.

Plugging in devices that were in 4-7 into inputs 1,2, or 3 work fine, so it's definitely the AVR.

EDIT: Unplugged the AVR for 30 seconds and now it's working. Weird.
