Re: Yamaha RX-V1700 Receiver / RX-V2700 Receiver - Official Owners Thread

This is surely why I initially said it sounded so laid back... for good reason. I actually like it on the music... it sounds really good and maybe it's good for the SBS-01's. I've left it off for the most part thus far. I want to tinker with the GEQ a little.


It sure would be super nice if Yamaha could release a firmware update to make the OSD short menus work via HDMI during a 1080i or better source. It would make living with the amp mo betta. Oh how the little things can gripe me sometimes.

There does appear to be a firmware update of some kind. You'll have register to get to it.

Unfortunately it's not a significant update for me...

Quote:
Yamaha has found that in some instances when switching between certain digital signals on an
RX-V1700 or HTR-6090, the digital signal will mute for an extended period of time or will not return.
Yamaha is offering a firmware update to correct this issue.

Re: Yamaha RX-V1700 Receiver / RX-V2700 Receiver - Official Owners Thread

I had a read through the RXV-1700 manual last night and on page 19 it says that the 'short message display' (which shows the front panel display onscreen whenever a button is pressed) is not available on component 480p/576p/720p/1080i or HDMI. So it looks like you can only have the onscreen display with 480i/567i sources.

I can't think of too many AVRs that can do OSD over a progressive signal or HDMI for that matter.

Yeah... I don't know of any either. I may can live with it... I'll just have to see how it works out and if it really gripes me bad enough.

You could always stick a magnifying glass to the front of the AVR to make the volume read out bigger.
