Question about Yamaha RX-V473 5.1 Channel Network AV Receiver

Yamaha receiver will not connect to Airplay

This receiver has network connection with internet radio, airplay and can be remote controlled from smartphone. The receiver will not show up as an Airplay device in itunes or iphone. After a lot of trial I have found out that it appears when the receiver is newly connected to the network. Than I can stream music to it for hours. But, if I don't start Airplay when it is fresh connected to the net, it will newer show up as a device. However, I can always play internet radio and control i from the phone, so the network connection is there, but Airplay disappears of some reason.

I have the same problem, it seems the airplay connection is easily lost, it never plays for longer than an hour without itunes losing the receiver, then i have to reset the receiver so that it appears in itunes again, very annoying. I spoke to Yamaha and they are not aware of any issues but clearly there is one. A quick workaround is to bring the receiver up in a browser by typing in its IP address, go to IP Address tab and simply apply without changing anything, this causes the receiver to initialize its network function as you will see the amp resetting and it will then appear in iTunes. This doesn't work through the units setup without changing settings and then changing them back again. Hopefully this is just a glitch that will Yamaha will fix in the next firmware update, I am running 1.14 update.

    Seconded, when I had similar problems it was the router (I went for an Apple Airport router to solve it)

    I have the same issue too. I changed from my out-of-the-box Telstra router to a Belkin N router, and I still have the same issue. Doing the "apply" work around as suggested by Brent corrects the issue temporarily.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

SOURCE: I'd like to connect my HP laptop to Yamaha 663 receiver

Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.

How do i connect by airplay


Without know what you are wanting to connect by airplay, it is difficult to provide specific instructions. But essentially, the device you want to connect to via Airplay must be "Airplay" compatible in order for it to receive a signal from your iOS/Apple product. If it is, then you'll select the Airplay icon on your Apple product, which will bring up the menu of Airplay devices in the vicinity. You'll then select the device you want to use from this Airplay menu.

AirPlay won't connect to harman kardon receiver


My iPhone has a button at the bottom right-hand side of the screen (next to the volume control), that gives me the option to listen on the phone or to have it run on the Harman Kardon airplay. It automatically turned on the receiver and played the sound of the video in surround sound. It looks like a rectangle with a triangle at the bottom of it.
