To my dismay, my remote control has broken and I am strugling to get a replacement. As I am trying to set up my speaker distnces on the amp, how can I set this up without a remote control? Aditionally, how can get a replacement remote, as a local retail store in South Africa stated to me that they cannot get such a remote anymore.

To control Zone 2 using the RX-V773 remote, the switch at the upper left side (above the BD/DVD Scene button) of the remote must be set to Zone 2. To see the operations on the front of the Yamaha receiver you must press the Zone Control button on the front of the receiver.
Note: Only analog signals can be sent to Zone 2. If you want to output the sound from Zone 2, connect an external component to USB Thumb drive, USB iPhone/iPod, Network, AV 5-6 or Audio 1-2 by analog connection. For AM/FM radio the antennas must be attached.
The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following: 1. Press and release AUX 2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice 3. Type 993 4. Press and release VOL- The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.
To the two people with problems. This sounds a bit odd, but do you still have the broken remotes? I'm looking for a broken one. I'd pay shipping and throw a few bucks your way if you could send it to me.

The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part. What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows: in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers. Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.
So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

Try checking the volume on your subwoofer i had the same problem. I unplugged the system and had the same error message pop up. So i checked the volume on the subwoofer, and it was set to max, i set it to normal and i haven't had any problems since
There are 2 ways to check your volume
1...On the remote there is a button labeled "BASS" press it, and on the display it will tell you a number between -3 and +3, If no number appears then it should say either "MIN" or "MAX" if it's at max use the volume control on the remote to turn it down to "0"
2...On the remote press "SET UP" .....Select the Volume icon by using the arrow keys, press "ok" or "enter" to access that icon .....Select "Speaker Setup" using the arrow keys and enter button .....Select Speaker Volume by pressing enter .....scroll down to "SUBWOOFER" and make sure the volume is no higher than +4dB ....Once done press "SET UP" on the remote to exit the setup screen
*Note* - The speaker volume option can only be chosen when nothing is playing on the player, or the disc tray is empty, You also have to be in either, Ipod mode or DVD mode to access this menu.
Hope this solves your problem, and i apologize on the delay of this solution ^_^
