Customer Question

I just purchased the Yamaha RX V-479 AV receiver. Doe this receiver support High Dynamic Range (HDR)? If not, can a firmware upgrade add this video upgrade? Or do I have to return this receiver for another?

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, Lester.

Unfortunately no, it does not. This is a very basic model receiver, and while it does support 4k passthrough, it does not do any scaling, it does not support 4:4:4 color depth and does not support HDR.

This is a matter of the video processing hardware as a feature/design limitation and is not something that could be resolved via firmware.

I can recommend a better or more capable model receiver for you, if you'd like to return this one.

Best regards,
