Question about Yamaha RX-V496 Receiver
Is it possible to set the Sony remote above, to operate the old Yamaha RX-V496 amp.
Sony has listed several manufacturer's codes including the Yamaha DVD codes 018,027,020,002, but none for the amp.
I would appreciate any suggestions, thanks Tom
isn't that nice of them to just list the yamaha code for CD players? I sent yamaha an email about it. we'll see what they say...
have you checked out the new universal remotes that are out now?

Try any older Sony DVD player code like the DVP-CX995. Sony has had the same basic codes for years. You will be missing blue, green, yellow, and red buttons since they are not available on the remote.
For a true one button solution check out the MX-900.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.
