Subject: RX-V1700 or HTR-6090 Firmware Update
Yamaha has found that in some instances when switching between certain digital signals on an
RX-V1700 or HTR-6090, the digital signal will mute for an extended period of time or will not return.
Yamaha is offering a firmware update to correct this issue.
This quick update was designed so that a user can complete the update themselves or have it completed
by an Authorized Yamaha Service Center. Included in this document are the update instructions, as well
as the link to download the firmware update.
If you are not able to perform the update, please make arrangements to deliver the unit to an Authorized
Yamaha Service Center and they will perform the update.

Receiver. See owner’s manual for
additional information on how to
connect a CD player or DVD player
via a Coaxial or Optical digital cable.
Some DVD Players use digital filters, which affects
the output signal of the devices. The firmware update
will not work with DVD Players that use these digital
filters. CD Players usually do not use these filters so
using a CD Player is preferred.
Note: Executing this update will RESET AV Receiver to factory default.
