Ive tried about everything, activate in speaker menu, main front as small, auto setup, manual.
Icon in displays sub, and yes, im sure the sub works, its an active Yamaha sub connected with y phono cable.
Also tried factory reset, no remedy.

Anyone? :rolleyes:

You really need to prove the sub works first.
Connect the sub direct to the output of a DVD/CD player left/right out with the volume down to start with. Play a CD.
That will prove if the sub works. If the sub has High and low inputs connect to the low in all cases (AV amp and CD player).
Sub normally connected. AV LFE/Sub out 1 (not both if available) to Sub left in if it has both left and right.

Does the sub produce any sound when you run the auto setup?
What is the gain and crossover set too on the back of the sub?
The is no need for a Y phono, just need a single from receiver to sub.

No its no sound in sub during auto sound, i can hear the rx clicks twice during the setup like its turning on or off a circuit inside.
I pluged the sub into the preamps front speaker, and it works...
I guess the y phono wont mess up anything either?

I would remove the y phono and just use a single one from the receiver to the sub just in case.

What "format" are you experimenting? what "mode" are you using?
- If you use a music CD and use the pure direct mode it just won't be any sound coming out of the LFE output!

What about bass management setting on the source (BD player) and/or on the amp?

worse case scenario.....is the amp still covered by warranty?

Ive tried all components, bd, film, music, radio, apple tv, ps3.
Also scrolled trough all modes...
The amp is less than a week old, but i was hoping i wouldnt have to dissconnect the cable hell behind it before i have to deliver it back :)
Any way to hard reset the rx?

Your initial mention of a y-phono cable makes me suspicious that you may be using the wrong output. Therefore, please make sure the Yamaha manual is handy, or download it from the Yamaha web site. I'll make references into the manual below so that you can clarify any questions as they arise.

Make sure you have connected the Subwoofer 1 on the Yamaha (lower right of rear panel - Manual page 10) to the LFE in on the subwoofer, and pressed hard to ensure a complete seating. The sub's crossover should be set to max / disabled and the subwoofer setting in the Yamaha to use - normal (manual page 92). The test tones (manual page 93) should now produce a hum through the subwoofer when you make adjustments.

Then check that all of the speakers have been set to small and the crossover is configured to 80Hz or higher (manual pages 91-92).

The subwoofer should now operate when you are not using pure / direct modes.

The procedure for resetting the Yamaha to its initial settings can be found on page 104 of the manual.
