20 Most Recent Yamaha RX-V473 5.1 Channel Network AV Receiver Questions & Answers

I have the same problem, it seems the airplay connection is easily lost, it never plays for longer than an hour without itunes losing the receiver, then i have to reset the receiver so that it appears in itunes again, very annoying. I spoke to Yamaha and they are not aware of any issues but clearly there is one. A quick workaround is to bring the receiver up in a browser by typing in its IP address, go to IP Address tab and simply apply without changing anything, this causes the receiver to initialize its network function as you will see the amp resetting and it will then appear in iTunes. This doesn't work through the units setup without changing settings and then changing them back again. Hopefully this is just a glitch that will Yamaha will fix in the next firmware update, I am running 1.14 update.

If the two units are compatible, you should be able to use the remote control directly.

Your Yamaha receiver offers a variety of configurations. You may have selected one in which speakers are off with the exception of FL and FR.

It's in protection mode. Disconnect all speakers and hold the Tone and Straight buttons while hitting the power button. Hold all buttons down for 3 to 5 seconds. This will turn off protection mode. Now power down then back on. If you haven't damaged anything it should work fine. Make sure all speaker connections are good. Always power down the unit before making any speaker or other connections.
