Try unplugging your 5007 and letting it sit for a little while before plugging it back in and trying it. This often works for grayed out sections on the GUI.

If that fails you'll have to perform a hard reset on the unit.

As a Snowbird wannabe (too young and not enough money), thanks for putting up with us!

Although I would probably be headed for Phoenix or San Diego, I promise when I do get there it will be in a bright coloured convertible sports car pushing the limits and without making a U-turn...

Interesting there is a bill before congress to make available a "Retiree Visa" for Canadians over 50 so they can stay up to 240 days before having to return home... so keep your eyes peeled for cotton tops!

Sure - I used to have a home in Florida and visited many, many times. I agree that sometimes it can be a little uncomfortable, but on balance, for me anyway, living in the heat beats living in the cold. Actually, it's not the cold so much as the lack of sunshine. It's sunshine I crave and we don't see nearly enough here.

Hahaha. Oh yes, I remember them! How do we bring this back on topic... let's see... ah yes - well at least your air-conditioned homes are a better environment for the hot-running Onkyos!

Kind Regards,

Is anyone else routinely running at reference for movies other then myself? I've been watching a lot of movies, Blurays, Digital, Divx, (2 channel and 6 channel) both converted to 5.1. Just wondering where most people's preferred listening level is at for movies on their onkyo. Mine is at 0.0.

TV/Cable is between -20 and -10

Music is between -10 and 0.0

What's the matter Keith, weather a bit damp as of late?

I know that where I live is the best in Canada for weather, but sometimes a bit more sun/warmth would be nice...

After 2 years of using 5007 I also end up with the same problem and same symptoms. Mine started this summer, 2-3 time I just plugged off the unit and pressed a lot of buttons erratically. Today I guess is the end.... Living in Moscow means that I will wait for many months for the board to come here. I still did not contact the service guys and I am thinking - will it be happening from now on every year? I am also one of those who always leaves amps and receivers on for 24h\\365d and I can't stand any fan noise.

I wonder, the newest 5008 and 5009 models also have the same manufacturer's defect? I checked some videos on Youtube - it seems to me that 5009 have the same layout as 5007, meaning that it might possible be stupid to buy a new Onkyo unit and wait another 1.5 years for its failure. What do you think?

I have a 5507 Pre-Pro and always run at reference volume when watching movies. My TV volume is about the same as yours as well.

I run about -15 for movies, man I think 00 would be really loud in my room. I know that 0 is suppose to be reference but I wonder how much variation their is from room to room. Another words my -15 might be equal to your 0, depanding on amps and speakers

Assuming you are setting things up with Audessey, your reference, his reference and my reference should be about the same volume.

It is set up with Audessey yes. But I guess that was my question, how much trim room does Audessey have to adjust for amp power and speaker levels. Another words can it adjust enough to make a low power amps driving hard to drive speakers the same level as a high power amp with easy to drive speakers. Maybe it does, just thinking out loud.

I know at 00 my room would be way louder then any movie theator that I have been to, but I don't know how close they run to reference.

Audessey has a pretty broad range of control but I am not an expert so I'm not sure...I guess I have assumed it could tackle those kinds of issues. Might be a good question for the Audessey thread.

Hi Al,

No - quite the reverse in fact. October was amazingly warm and sunny - warm enough to sit in the garden (yard) in shirtsleeves. And so far, November has been sunny but much cooler. I suspect a lot of rain is on its way. I lived in Pasadena/LA for 3 years many years ago, and, until about 5 years ago, owned a home in Florida which I spent time at every year. I do envy people who live in warm, sunny places! As a sop to being on topic , at least my hot-running 5007 is better in a cooler climate!

I know at 00 my room would be way louder then any movie theator that I have been to, but I don't know how close they run to reference.

My 5007 can adjust speaker trims by +/- 15dB. That is 30dB of adjustment which represents a thousand-fold increase in amp power from -15 to +15dB! I'd guess that that was enough variation

So, for a typical domestic environment, assuming that one has an AVR suited to the size of the room, plus speakers of typical efficiency, and with typical distances between speaker and listener, Reference is Reference regardless, and at 0dB we should all be hearing the same subjective loudness from our systems. It would be a pretty poor 'Reference' if that wasn't the case.

I typically use -9dB on the MV for movies and, subjectively to me, they sound very loud. This is not to be confused with 'sounding loud' when amps are clipping - I have massive amplification, efficient speakers and a small room, so headroom is virtually infinite. I just mean that the movie sounds very loud (but clean). A good test is to try talking to your partner during a loud passage (or to yourself if you prefer ) - sometimes you'll think the system isn't playing very loud, if it is clean and within the parameters of your amps and speakers, but you can amaze yourself when not only can your partner not hear your voice, but neither can you!

I'm going to try that one next time. (probably later today) 2 weeks after getting laid off, i've been burning through a large amount of content. At least my Onky is performing flawlessly now.

So I take it it is not under warranty, or you cannot get the warranty honored in Moscow?

I was pricing out the 3009/5009 this past weekend, they do look very similar and do have some additional features over the x007 models. So considering that the prices were good I wouldn't hesitate but considering that the x010 models will soon be out... I would wait to see what they bring to the table and if there are still any x009 models out there the prices should soften just a bit more.

so for the video on the 3007, picture adjust - resolution, would I be better at through or auto, or 1080p/24?

I know that the Onky would have better scaling then my ps3, so I need to go and turn the upscaling off. my ATT uverse box outputs at 1080i.

I haven't really played with this side of it yet, so I'm curious as to what you guys have to say about it.

I may just need to dig into the manual on this question:

I currently have my Front left and Front Right biamped. zone 2 activated, center, surround L and R.

Would it be possible to run: SBL SBR SR SL R L C and Zone 2 act and Zone 3 Act?

The reason why i ask, is if i go into speaker setup and activate zone 2 and 3, take fronts out of bi-amp, the only outputs left are Right High and Left High. (or does that just mean it's interchangeable between Surround back L/R or Hight L/R?

depends on how well your display handles 24 frames...... I did not like how 24frames looked on my panasonic plasma, but do on the projector. If you dont mind how 24frames looks, id set it to auto so that if the content is 24frames native it will use that format but not force/convert to it.....

I prefer the scaling on the 3007 over the PS3 which is pretty good already.

Do you use any of the artefact correction listed under resolution? I have it all set to off, i didn't know how worth while it is.

like block/mosquito noise? No it softens the image and introduces mire problems than it corrects......IMO.

I'm sorry to hear you have been laid off. Victim of the mess our supposed 'leaders' have created?

I haven't really played with this side of it yet, so I'm curious as to what you guys have to say about it.

It depends which of your components does the best upscaling. There are generally three components which can upscale - the source unit (BD player etc), the AVR and the screen. You need to upscale in the place where it is done best.

If the source upscales the best, then you need to set it to its highest output resolution and the AVR needs to be set to Through. The screen will see 1080p coming in and do nothing.

If the AVR upscales best, then the source needs to be set to the native resolution of the material (often called 'Source' or something similar) and the AVR set to 1080p or whatever the highest res is that your screen supports. Again, the screen will see 1080p coming in and do nothing.

If the screen upscales best, you need the source set to the native resolution, the AVR set the Through, and the screen upscales will upscale to the highest res the panel or PJ can support.

How do you know which upscales best? Use a test disc and try all three methods. Remember also that the Onkyo has numerous additional picture quality controls which you may wish to use and if so, then you will need to have the AVR doing the work here. And these PQ controls are on a per-source basis, so you could, for example, enable some noise reduction on your SD TV source but not on your other sources. To enable this on a source by source basis it is important to set the AVR to SOURCE (not Through) in the Monitor Out/Resolution setting menu. You can then set each source to Through or 1080p or whatever you want in the Source Setup menu elsewhere.

The reason why i ask, is if i go into speaker setup and activate zone 2 and 3, take fronts out of bi-amp, the only outputs left are Right High and Left High. (or does that just mean it's interchangeable between Surround back L/R or Hight L/R?

You have to remember you have just 9 channels of amplification, so you can't use more than 9 channels, no matter which combination you use. If you are biamping then that is two channels gone there. If you use Zone 2 that is another two channels used and so on. You can't use all the speaker options at once because you don't have enough channels.

Turn it on an off and try it. I leave it all off as I find it makes the PQ worse in every case. But it's easy to try. A good test disc is very helpful when doing these tests. Digital Video Essentials is a good one, or the Spiers & Munsel.

Hehehe - thank you, Rickard. I knew it was spelled wrong when I typed it! Should have used Mr Google.

EDIT: I just googled what I typed and google was intelligent enough to search for Spears and Munsil. What on earth did we do before search engines!

Thank you for your comments about 5009.
In Moscow Onkyo 5009 costs now US $3300 and 5009 - US $4300. Basically I would expect my 5007 to operate at least 5-9 years before it becomes obsolete due to technical rally of HDMI10.x or some 3-D fancy something upscaling directly inside the brain or whatever they introduce before cinema will be completely forgotten the same as theater and opera were.

I would never go for a N+1 model if I was fully satisfied. But this 5007 worries me that even if I get it repaired I would have the same issue in 2 years time.
