How does the latest firmware ver. 1.66 perform on the RX-AxA? Is anyone experiencing a significant audio gap after there is a format change, e.g. from PCM to Dolby Digital, of content streaming to the AVR over an HDMI or optical connection?

Same here, no issues as of yet with the last update. I have had some net radio issues with stations dropping out. I have to click on that station again, two,three songs will play than the station will drop. I did read that Yamaha is aware of it and working on the net radio issues. They believe it's on the network side though. Station "High on Line" is the most aggravating, never use to do that, drops out pretty regularly the last couple weeks I've noticed. I've also noticed "Chill&Smooth Jazz (United States/English) channel. After about a hour or so it'll drop off the net radio select screen will be up to all the channels I've saved, I just click on that channel again it'll start playing again. I've switched from ethernet to Wi-Fi. Same thing happens, thinking my service provider had the issue or maybe my router modem acting up who knows.

FWIW, from a What HiFi? review of RX-A6A:
"As of August 2022, gaming features such as ALLM (Auto Low Latency mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) will also be supported, but there’s still no date for when QMS (Quick Media Switching) and QFT (Quick Frame Transport) will be added."
If that is true, then the release of ver. 1.67 (or higher) with ALLM and VRR is imminent.
