Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I just got a 4K TV and want to send the video from my Nvidia shield directly to the TV so it can play 4K but of course I want to use the 972 for audio. If I put a splitter on the output of the shield and run one to the 972 will the receiver just ignore the video and just play the audio portion or reject everything?

I would try ebay, start an auction at $200 and let the market decide if it is worth more.

Given they are now several years old and sold new for $599 I would think asking $200 would be about the best you could ask.

Does anyone know if there is any market for a used R972? I'm considering selling mine but can't seem to find a market on ebay or these forums to get an idea of a good cost point. Are people interested in them? What is the going rate? etc.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hello. I'm new to the forum. Obviously have the 972. Have had the unit for some time, but am now trying to use it in conjunction with my HiFi tube system. Was connecting the front preamp outs to my AR LS8 tube pre amp to the tape or AUX inputs, then routing the MAIN outputs to my Rogue 88 power amp. I want to be able to use a single pair of front end speakers (Goldenear 2's) for my tube HiFi and use the same pair of speakers for my 972 fronts. Obviously not powering both systems simultaneously.

Can someone offer me a suggestion as I'm not able to get the front surround sound I expected. Thanks.

To reset the R-972 to factory settings:
Once in Standby Mode, press and hold down the STANDBY & MEMO/ENTER buttons simultaneously for at least 3 seconds. This will reset the unit and it will turn on automatically. If the reset was successful, you should notice that the receiver powers up at 87.5 FM .
This is how you do the reset ^^

Well, I would guess that the first one has a HDMI board failure. The second one not so sure. Have you tried doing a full reset on both receivers?
Yes on the reset (unless there is another unpublished reset I'm not aware of)... I agree about the HDMI board and since the second has video was hoping I could open up the cases and swap the HDMI board over to the first. It's easy enough to get into the case, even remove the screws in back to loosen the board. The issue is the connectors.. There is a bridge connector across from the HDMI board to the board with digital audio inputs that I REALLY didn't want to force.. there are a couple of ribbon/flex cable connections where I can't seem to find an "unlock" mechanism.. I'm not a novice at inside electronics, but there are just some things inside this puppy I'm not familiar with..

Anyone ever swap an HDMI board in these receivers or know of someone who can???

Would appreciate any info (and thanks for the reply Tony).

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

All,

Looking for some guidance (Jeff, perhaps you can help). I've got two of these now.. and maybe re-posting some issues in the hopes some "new light" might be shed. My original was working absolutely fine and one day I lost all video and the ability to activate "setup" from either the front panel or the remote. Audio remained fine. Picked up a second one that was supposedly fine.. Well, that one arrived with all video and setup working, but no audio (I mean no audio not even test tones).. So I'm thinking that there has to be one good unit perhaps between these two!!! I've tried all the obvious things like reset, etc.. nothing makes a difference in either one (I did get my money back on the second and got to keep it).

Is there ANYONE out there that still works on these that perhaps could make one good one from the two? Any ideas on the second one without audio? Pulled the covers and even though I've built quite a few PCs in my time, some of these connections and how to detach/re-attach are pretty foreign.. At some point will give up the ghost on these two, but hoping for one last ray of light as I said... I've even still got the R865 I had when I stepped up to the 972!! Replaced the 972 with Denon 4311CI which is a very capable receiver with Audessey (full) but I do miss the Trinnov optimization..

Any and all thoughts are VERY welcome.. Thanks..

Jay S.
