Hi Andrew Smith, as you comment, the problem would be in the remote control
You can do a test to see if the remote control is broadcasting
You put the camera of your cell phone focusing on the emitter of the remote control, press any key on the remote and through the camera you will see that the emitting LED turns on (this happens through the cameras of the cell phones detect infrared rays, our view can not do it directly)
With this method you can check if they are emitting each key of the remote control
If you don't emit, you can try cleaning the internal contacts
Try to carefully disassemble the remote control
Separate the plate and the rubber template from the keys, clean the latter with some neutral soap, removing the grease that forms in the contact area, on the other hand, clean the plate with a cloth dampened with a glass cleaner, NO USE ALCOHOL in any case, let all parts dry and reassemble
Take the test and comment
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Andrew Smith, por lo que comentas, el problema estaria en el control remoto
Puedes hacer una prueba para ver si el control remoto esta emitiendo
Colocas la camara de tu celular enfocando al emisor del control remoto, presionas cualquier tecla del remoto y a traves de la camara veras que el LED emisor se enciende (esto sucedepor las camaras de los celulares detectan los rayos infrarojos, nuestra vista directamente no puede hacerlo)
Con este metodo podras comprobar si estan emitiendo cada tecla del control remoto
Siencuentras que no emiten, puedes probar limpiar los contactos internos
Trata de desarmar con mucho cuidado el control remoto
Separa la placa y la plantilla de goma de las teclas, limpia esta ultima con algun jabon neutro, sacandole la grasitud que se forma en la zona de contactos, por otro lado, limpia la placa con un pa?o humedecido con algun limpiador para vidrios, NO USES ALCOHOL en ningun caso, deja secar bien todas las partes y vuelve a armarlo
Haz la prueba y comenta
Saludos Franco Dosil

Hi Tony mucci, to connect your Yamaha EQ-70 equalizer to the RX-661, you must use two double RCA RCA cables and the Line IN connection of the EQ-70, you go to the RX-661 MD / CD-R Rec connection and the Line Out connection of the EQ-70 you go to the MD / CD-R Play of the RX-661
This equalizer will work with the analog audio signals, but not with the digital ones
I hope you can connect it
Greetings Franco Dosil

Espero lo puedas conectar

You have this backwards. The remote control is the source of the codes that apply to your Yamaha amplifier.

Hi Bryan Fenwick, if your Sky + HD Box-Wifi-2TB, has a unique audio output and is an optical type (Fiber Optic), you will not be able to connect it to your Yamaha CRX-D430, because it does not have such inputs , the fiber optic connection you have, is an output of the compactera
You should buy an audio signal converter by fiber optic to audio signal, L R, with RCA

In some old model av-amp, if the sampling freq. is 96KHz or
above, av-amp confines its playback in 2 channels only.
Check the sampling input source is 96KHz or not.

(1)Download htr6130 service.
(2)Start the self-diag test
(3)follow the instructions written on p.25 to 33 to do the tests.

Hi Terry Fraser, for what you say, you could have problems in the speaker outputs or power supply
Try disconnecting all the speakers from the back panel of your Yamaha and test if it does the same
If you do, it is safe source and output failure
If you don't, check all the cables and connections on the speakers well and reconnect one speaker at a time.
Comment the results
Regards Franco Dosil
Hola Terry Fraser, por lo que comentas, podr?as tener problemas en las salidas de parlantes o fuente de alimentaci?n
Prueba desconectar todos los parlantes del panel posterior de tu Yamaha y prueba si hace lo mismo
Si lo hace, es seguro falla de fuente y salidas
Si no lo hace, revisa bien todos los cables y conexiones en los bafles y ve re conectando de a un bafle por vez
Comenta los resultados

Ensure the correct code is being used as it can be selected for more than one DSP unit.

Connect an HTMI cable to the leftmost (viewed from the back) HDMI jack to your TV's HDMI. Then connect the optical cable from the TV to the AV4 optical jack on the 573.

You may need to configure your TV to use the HDMI jack you plugged into (if you have multiple HDMI jacks.)

That should be all you need to do.
