Does anyone know what receivers allow that feature? My customer wants to watch sports but select the turntable/Sonos/ cd's for audio source at will.

Thanks.

I haven't found where I could use the same video feed with multiple inputs. It's more like the video input drives everything, and you can pair other audio inputs to it.

It would seem when AVRs started to have HDMI. The ability to switch audio and video separately went away.

I think you can assign video to the streaming services, but that's all.

Is this an existing installation? If so, which model Yamaha receiver are we using? Which TV model?

Make a scene - not straightforward but lets you have hdmi video of a source and music.

This is contorted and I don't have anything handy in order to try, but one possibility is to loop a Zone2 or Zone3 analog output back to an analog input and reassign audio for the HDMI input to the looped back analog input. This can be done through the receiver's setup web interface or a control system. Offhand I don't recall if an RTI or URC driver can get down to this level.

Another approach would be to split the HDMI and make two connections to the receiver -- one using the regular HDMI audio and the other using my loop back scheme.

Existing system, but currently has an old a Denon avr4805. That receiver has that feature, but only with component, not HDMI.

Was wondering if this can be done with Music Cast on Aventage receivers (specifically a RX-A660). Put one in on a job and later client asked about tv/music simultaneously

A Denon unit would be my second choice. I installed a AVR-X3000 (?) a couple years ago that had this feature, I thought. ??

Edit: I looked through the Denon's and they can do it...sort of. They only give you the choice of the Phono, USB and FM Tuner/HD Radio. They call it "Video Select".

I was on Yamaha's chat and they said that what I want can be done only with the 2060 and 3060 and only once registering them with the Scenes setup for custom Scenes # 5-12.

I'll have to read through the manual to see how easy it is to use for the customer.

Onkyo and Integra can do this easily as well.

Annoying that Denon and Yamaha havent made it easier

It's simple, play the audio you'd like, then choose the video input you'd like to play on the display.
Saving it as a scene is possible - but then it means every time you use that source (say USB) it will default to that video source... which is obviously not always ideal.
One the RXA1060 / 2060 / 3060 you can use the advanced Scene selection option to fix this... below this, it's a little trickier to automate. However it IS possible for a relatively savvy consumer to use the option button themselves.


...those customers are rare though.
My signature? It matches the one on the back of my credit card.

Obviously we want to have this feature as an option to the normal activities, such as just watching Directv. I'll probably put some buttons on a screen where he can select one of these scenes, and at will, switch the audio back to the Directv audio/video that would have been configured in the initial activity launch macro.

Yamaha can't do it.. Denon can kind of do it but in a funky way. You have to select your audio source first then do a "video" select. If at any time you change audio sources you have to reselect your video.
