Hi
I have a Yamaha RX-V2065, bought in the UK. The main remote control has died and I'm trying to source a replacement.

The remote is model RAV298 WS31730 EX. I've found a second-hand WS31730 US online in the UK, and I'm guessing EX means export, and US means USA version.

Anyone know how well the WS31730 US would work with my UK receiver?

Thanks!

The US remote would still operate the EU or UK modeles. It simply includes additional buttons associated withfunctions not onboard the UK models such as satellite radio.


I'd give you one for free, but you'd have to buy the RXV2065 it came with :)

If the buttonsare the same then the remotes are interchanfeable and should used the same IR commands.


I'm not even that sure that the US models had different remotes to those issued elsewhere, not unless the US remotes include additional buttons associated with satellite radio?

The sites showing these remotes appear to be showing the exact same remote

Thank you - yes, that ebay listing was the one I saw. I've now realised it's a RAV296 instead of a RAV298, and is WS31710 instead of WS31730.

It looks like WS31710 US version has extra buttons & subtle differences to mine: extra SIRIUS & XM buttons, a RHAPSODY button, and additional functionality for MENU, FFWD and PREV/NEXT buttons. Nothing is missing.

I'll try a RAV296.

Thanks again!

Mine still works, but isn't in use and has been boxed up in storage for several years now. The only thing amiss is the fact that it's HDMI implimentation hasn't kept pace with the advancements that have occured. If only wanting support for 1080p and if not wanting Atmos or DTS:X though, it is a great sounding AVR. The supposed more up to date models I've subsequently had have been rather dissappointing in comparison to the V2065, especially in relation to the AVR's actual power and analogue amplification.
