Good going starting the new thread. However the models should be listed, so that forum searches will pick them up.

I just grabbed the RX-V475 today...
Just an FYI. My 671 can do that.Quote:

If you (or anyone else) have their 475 connected to a network, can you please confirm that it supports the web browser control interface (just type the IP address of the receiver into a web browser). And if so, does it have the Backup/Recovery feature on the Settings page?
(If it has Backup/Recovery it presumably saves/restores everything including YPAO PEQ parameters, which implies they can be modified even though the normal user interface doesn't let you.)
Good info. Thanks.Quote:

At the 6xx level you have manual PEQ control, but on the 4xx you don't. YPAO can set the PEQ filters on the 4xx, but for manual adjustment the UI only gives you a GEQ (filters with fixed frequencies and widths).
Yamaha played the same game back in the day of the RX-V1800 and 3800. They both had the same PEQ capabilities internally, but on the 1800 the UI did not give you access to manual adjustments. Luckily there was a back door via RS-232 codes to give full control on the 1800 (thats why PEQedit was created). There could be a similar backdoor via network codes on the 475 to allow manual PEQ control.
The only downside to Yamaha’s AirPlay implementation on these models is that you can’t use AirPlay itself to power on the receivers. That was definitely a neat trick with the Denon AVR-1913 I recently reviewed. The reason it’s not available here is because both of these receivers draw a minuscule 0.1 watt in standby mode—just enough to keep the IR receiver warmed up, but not enough to keep the device’s network connected and sniffing around for IP packets.

Not sure if that review was referring specifically to AirPlay, but you can certainly turn on those models (473 and 573) from the Yamaha App as long as you've enabled Network Standby (which is not enabled by default). Then the receiver draws about 2W when "off" instead if 0.1W. I think the review may have missed that feature. I don't see any changes in that area from the 473 to the 475.
