Google home and Yamaha av receiver not working


Standard Member
I have a Yamaha RX-V1079 and have just set it up with my new Google nest mini. I followed the instructions on the Yamaha site, and it set up easily enough.

However, I try to follow the commands as set out in the manual off the Yamaha site, and the only command that works is to turn it off and mute/un mute.

If I say “hey Google set volume to 37 in the media room” it just sets it to something stupid, like ready low so you can’t hear it.

Also it will not power on the amp, it says it’s not supported. Yet it turns it on fine.

The firmware is up to date etc.

Anyone using Google with MusicCast etc?

Have you tried disabling HDMI CEC on the AVR and connected devices - it could be having a fight with your other control system.

Try disabling CEC on all devices then power cycle all devices.
