How do I use the remote to cont bass & treble for rxv-657 reeiver
Is there a way to control the bass & treble tone controls using the remote control? I have looked in the manual and can not find any such commands. The only way that i can control the tone controls is by pushing the "tone control" button on the face of the receiver and then using the knob to adjust. I am trying to program a Harmony One universal remote and want to be able to be able to adjust the bass & treble using the universal remote. Thanks! Randy

No, Tone controls are on the front of the unit only. If your passing video thru the unit you can go into the setup menu from the harmony and adjust all the sound parameters that way "on screen" The only "EQ" capabilities are for the Center channel only. You can adjust "speaker size". "Large" setting will give you a little lower response. "Small" will crossover the speaker at "100hz" That's about as far as tone adjustment goes on this unit. Hope this helps

Not possible to adjust the tone without the remote.
if you have the possibility for a universal remote like "Logitech" remotes its Recommended for such cases, that will be easier for you to control the the AVR system.
If you have over driven the amp by playing it real loud with the bass control turned up, it is very possible that you have toasted the output stages of amp.
Every time you boost a tone control by 3 db you have doubled the output power at that frequency. So if you are "coasting" along at a nominal 75 watts, the moment you boost the bass by 3 db the amp has to put out 150 watts at that low frequency.. Go to +6db and now the poor amp has to kick out 300 watts! And so on.
Rule of thumb - you never use your tone controls at very loud levels. Tone controls are there to compensate for the poor frequency response of the human ear at low volume levels - the Fletcher Munsen effect. At low volumes our hearing with the lows and high frequencies so when you play something at low volume you boost up the bass and treble to compensate for poor hearing. At loud volumes our ears respond properly.
On the Remote Control

"Bass" or "Treble" can be set when "Tone Control" is set to
The frequency of mid range control is about 1KHz. The bass and treble are usually enough to set the tone of sounds and music, and if the customer has high quality speakers connected to the amplifier it is almost unnecessary to modify any tone. In my opinion you are right that x-band equalizer became less important now. Thank you. gylacz
hhmmmm, I searched through the manual to find this info for you. It appears that the tone adjustments are initiated by the "tone" button on the REMOTE. I could not find any reference to there being a button to do same on the front of the unit. Odd, but there you go.
Use the tone key(on remote) to get "tone" up on the front of the unit.
Then using the multi up-down keys, turn the "tone on".
Once you have got to here, use the tone key to select "bass" or " treble"
Using the multi up down keys, adjust the tone controls to your liking with the multi up down keys
