Question about Yamaha RX-V473 5.1 Channel Network AV Receiver
This receiver has network connection with internet radio, airplay and can be remote controlled from smartphone. The receiver will not show up as an Airplay device in itunes or iphone. After a lot of trial I have found out that it appears when the receiver is newly connected to the network. Than I can stream music to it for hours. But, if I don't start Airplay when it is fresh connected to the net, it will newer show up as a device. However, I can always play internet radio and control i from the phone, so the network connection is there, but Airplay disappears of some reason.
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.

Can I stream video on AirPlay to the Yamaha rx v475?
the sound is working fine with airplay and Yamaha's app but video won't show, they are played as sound only.

i have the same problem. i have a rx-v661. i goto the zone 2 settings and try to change the volume and it says VOL FIX. I cannot hear anything out of zone 2. It takes the current volume that is in zone 2, but i cannot hear anything. it has been working fine for at least a year.

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.
