Hi. Just a quick note: The A3080 has Airplay. "Great" I hear you say...
But you can't defeat AirPlay on the A3080 and believe me, there will be times that you wish you could. For example, if anyone in your house accidentally or on purpose decides to play music via airplay to the A3080, whatever input you are watching on the receiver at the time (such as a Set Top Box or a Bluray movie) will immediately switch to Airplay and you will hear their music and see their coverart. You'll need to find the remote, switch back the the original input in the middle of your movie, and rewind a bit to see what you missed.
I know you are thinking "Surely, that can't be right!" but it is and you can't defeat this "mental" behaviour, even if you want to. Without either turning off the entire network functionality of the A3080 (bye bye internet radio or anything "internet") or by telling your kids not to do it. If the person did it accidentally, you first have to find out WHICH kid is doing it as they may not even know they are the cause. Otherwise it could happen repeatedly, during your movie. Again and again.
Fun! Your partner will LOVE it!
BTW, I have a non-yamaha TV with Airplay built into it as well. I can turn airplay OFF on the TV in the TV's menus but not on the A3080. This A3080's Airplay "feature" is always on, whether you want it on or not and at any time, not matter what you are doing or watching on your connected TV, Airplay will interrupt it, whenever anyone (accidentally) "airplays" to it.
Go figure! Trust me, you'll love it when it happens... your partner will too. Not!
I'm not sure that cross posting is the solution to your issue:
Any RX-A3080 owners, please offer some advice if you get a chance. I am new to YPAO I am constantly having to do the following on "manual" parametric EQ, i.e., boost frequencies from approximately 800 hz to 4000 hz. Otherwise, mids are very submerged to my ears when YPAO configures it for flat...
The answer would be exactly the same in this thread. No, the AV receiver has no option to turn off Airplay.
