I've been enjoying my sub-500 for over a week now but I'm having a difficult time with the intermittent stand by. I knew this was an issue, but I didn't think it was as bad as I am experiencing.
Bass heavy, (dynamic) movies at decent volume do not cause the sub to go into stand by at all. However, anything at lower volume, or non 5.1 material, causes the sub to cut out every few min. I'm waiting for break in before calibration, but the settings are as follows:
Onkyo tx-nr535. Sub and all speaker level set to 0. Bass +2. Speakers set to small 80 hz.
Is there anything I can do to remedy this? I refuse to simply turn the sub on and off every time I want to enjoy my HT. I would hook up an extra power supply for the sub to use if I could get the Onkyo to trigger it once turned on, but I'm not sure if that would be easily done. I also suspect that might damage the amp..
Any insight would be appreciated.
