Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
What do you have connected to the yamaha currently?Does this happen when initially set to any other source, such as tuner?
Okay there are a few possible causes of this.
It may be a hdmi communication error (signal dropping out) from a source device, a hdmi control fault, or there may actually be an ios device on the network that is trying to connect and that is prompting the receiver over to airplay mode.
Do you have the receiver set up on wifi or ethernet?
Okay, can you please (temporarily) disconnect the ethernet cable, so it has no network connection, then observe if it still is switching to airplay?This will help us to isolate the problem further.
It is possible that just the reconnect process was sufficient to reset the internal network controller (pulling a new ip address) and ultimately resolving any airplay conflicts with other devices on the network.
I am an independent technician and I've spent my personal time, unpaid, in a good faith effort to assist with the question for which you solicited my services. I am only paid for my efforts when customers such as yourself leave positive feedback for my work. I do hope you’ll consider leaving a positive rating for me, rather than “shoot the messenger”, so that I may get credit for my time spent in good faith to answer your question accurately.
You pay an initial $5 deposit to post your question.
You would have agreed to a total value/fee for this specific question.
There is a free trial option, meaning if you opted to continue on with a monthly subscription, you'd get the first weeks worth of that for free, which would have ultimately included this question.
If you opt not to continue with a subscription, then you'd just have the original fee ($36 total) for this particular question session with me.
It is not intended to be confusing, the total $36 question cost (which is based on the urgency and level of detail that you indicate) should have been clear at multiple points along the way. Though the site does encourage the subscription option, it is not required.
