Back in the day, before surround sound, when most receivers were strictly 2 channel stereo, volumes could be rated from 1-10 or 1-100, depending upon different brand name equipment. Nowadays, a 0db rating is applied as sort of an industry standard, the 0 being close to the point of audible distortion. So -25db, for instance will be quite loud. and any small increase or decrease in volume will be easily detected. It's confusing, but just a step towards getting a linear idea of output that all amps can be applied to.

Yamaha rxv 870 - volume does not work from remote(s)


hi i have the same problem. yamaha rx-v870 with a remote control that works perfectly except for the volume up/down. i pressed the buttons for a minute and applied some lemon gunk remover liquid and this helped for a very short period. i am wondering if the problem is with the little motor inside the receiver that rotates the volume knob itself, as opposed to an infrared problem on the transmitter/receiver.

I have a Yamaha RXV-365 AV receiver. When I connect my Bluray dvd I only get the picture and no sound, I have an optical cable fitted into the back of the tv and placed it in theback of the reciever but...


You must connect from the Bluray both HDMI and SPDIF to the receiver, and turn TV volume down. TV does not send the sound
from HDMI inputs out digitally, only sound from TV channels.

Pushing 4 ohm speaker systems


Officially this receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers. But for surround speakers it should not do any harm, because they are not played at full volume. But be sure to set yamaha for 6 ohm speakers.
Using only 4 ohm speakers makes the amplifier work more hard and produce more heat, that's why you can't use it at high volume.

Why do the volume numbers on old receivers start


This type of calibartion is known as a logarithmic scale.
The numbers refer to decibels below the maximum output of the amplifier section of the reciever, or decibels of attenuation (making smaller/quieter).

Without going through logarithim theorey, the logarithim (base 10) of 1 is 0. So if 1 is the maximum output of the amp, as you turn the knob down from maximum you are adding more and more attentuation to the output (relative to maximum) and so the loudness of what you hear goes down, even though the number on the scale is going up !

Most peolpe associate decibels with sound levels, but anything can be measured in decibels, so long as there is soemthing to reference it against.

Different sound levels dvd and cable hdtv yamaha htr-6130


Well, first of all, the method you are using is the lowest quality. You should upgrade to a toslink(digital optical cable) or a digital RCA cable. The toslink is the best all around. But it is normal for some devices to have higher sound output than others.
