Nice looking place and toys! You will enjoy the unpacking..
Very nice kit.

Seriously thinking about upgrading my Yamaha to a 3070. Might save a few pennies and go for the 2070 though. I probably wont miss too much unless anyone can think of a really good reason to go for the top of the line?
Now have the 1070 but only just turned it on to use system... no adjustments yet. There is no dimmer so what Yamaha model do I need to add that command into my harmony.
Also whilst having a quick fiddle with the sound types I set to DD Dsur on sky but it keeps flashing between that and a NEO option.. Change to some others and they flash between one and another. The only way to stop the info changing was to set it to surr.code but I would like when it says SKY HD for instance to say DD surr. Tried some more button pressing and now things like SciFi/adventurer flashing between two sets of info.
None of the legacy Yamaha models have a discrete IR command for dimming the front panel display. You can only adjust the display via the receiver's settings.
You've more than likely set the SURROUND DECODER mode to Neural:X and the incoming signal is Dolby Digital. The receiver doesn't alternate between Neural:X and Dolby Surround Upmixing and only one of the two can be used at any one time. The display is indicating that you are applying Neural:X upmixing to the Dolby Digital audio coming into the receiver. To change the mode being used then use the SUR. DECODE button to select one.
The Sci-Fi and Adventure on the display are an indication of DSP modes you've engaged. The front pannel display can show various aspects of the receiver's activity depending on whicjh display mode you set it to. You can toggle between these using the INFO button on the remote. The button can be used to toggle the display between the AUDIO DECODER mode being used and the DSP PROGRAM that may be engaged. If you select the AUDIO DECODER option then both the incoming signal type as well as the SURROUND DECODER mode you are applying to it will be displayed. THe display will alternate between the type of incoming audio and the mode the receiver is set to if you select the AUDIO DECODER option.
Had a bit more of a play and why Yamaha think that you would want your display flashing at you in the dark is beyond me.
Had a bit more of a play and why Yamaha think that you would want your display flashing at you in the dark is beyond me. Why if you change the input from bitstream/dolby digital to PCM does it flash between PCM and Dsurr once and then stay on Dsurr where as if the signal coming in is DD it continues to flash between the 2. If the idea is to purely inform you the incoming and outgoing then why do the alternating for one type only.
The display would alternate between the source format and the surround decoder mode being applied irrespective of what that incoming format is. Why would the receiver not inform you of these two seperate things if receiving PCM?
Toggle the display to the DSP PROGRAM option using the INFO button and the display remains static. Only the DSP PROGRAM is shown in this display mode or only the mode the receiver is set to if not using a DSP PROGRAM. Only the AUDIO DECODER display mode alternates the display between the incoming format and the mode.
SKY HD outputting DD ...audio decoder set to auto...... it alternates DD/ Dsur. Without touching anything on the receiver, go into sky settings and change to normal. After a couple of secs the receiver says PCM then Dsur then stays on Dsur. .. no alternating.
You are saying it makes no difference what the input is , it should still alternate... so im confused
Its nothing to do with listening to PCM its about how the display handles the different inputs it. The video shows exactly what's happening as I change the sky ouput. The straight button hasn't even been pressed. Got the size down to 24mbs but still to large. The surround decoder is set to both dsurr and auto in my tests.
Im not just getting PCM displayed ...it appears once then shows Dsurr. If you use DD it appears once then dsurr then starts alternating. My comment is the fact that one input alternates and the other doesn't.... regardless of surround decoder The video shows this happening ... Theres no point you repeating the same thing over and over again it doesn't explain why this has to happen. Why continuously tell you DD in Dsurr out but only tell you once that PCM in Dsurr out and If its not applied dsurr out as you say then why say it on the screen. If I see dsurr on the display it would make me assume that it had been applied.
Anyway I know im right in what im seeing so its pointless carrying on this discussion . You think differently and that's your prerogative
