When I tried updating via LAN, it similarily froze the receiver when I pressed "update". If I powered off/on there would be no sound, I had to disconnect it from mains to get sound again. Glad the 3007 wasn't bricked, as I just some minutes earlier bricked my PSP by accidentally tripping on the power lead while updating
(the battery in my PSP is so worn that if I use wlan, it only stays on for some seconds, so I have to keep it in mains)
The update instructions are not 100% correct. I don't think I see Now Initializing in step6 and in step13, I think the receiver restarted itself when I pressed the Standby button.Step1:
Connect a USB storage device to your PC. If there is any data in the USB storage, remove it.Step2:
Download the firmware file from the Onkyo web site. The file name is as follows:
Extract the zip file that you have downloaded. The following three files are created:
Copy the extracted files to the USB storage device. Be careful not to copy the zip file.Step4:
Remove the USB storage device from your PC and connect it to the USB port on the
AV receiver/controller. When the AV receiver/controller has two USB ports, you can use either one.Step5:
Make sure your AV receiver/controller and TV are turned on. If the AV receiver/controller is in standby mode, push [ON/STANDBY] to light up the front display.Step6:
Select the USB input source. Now Initializing is displayed on the front display and then the name of the USB storage device is displayed. It will take 20 to 30 seconds to recognize the USB storage device.Step7:
Push [RECEIVER] followed by [SETUP] on the remote controller. Main menu will be displayed on TV screen. Procedures thereafter can also be performed on the AV receiver/controller by using its SETUP, arrow, and ENTER buttons.Step8:
Go to 7. Hardware Setup menu.Step9:
Go to 7-6. Firmware Update menu.Step10:
Select Via USB and push [ENTER].Step11:
Select Update and push [ENTER].
Updating will begin.
As the updating progresses, the TV screen may disappear depending on the program updated. In this case, you can see the update progress on the front display of the AV receiver/controller. The TV screen will reappear when you finish the update and turn on the AV receiver/controller.
Do not turn off the AV receiver/controller and do not remove the USB storage device during updating process.Step12:
Message OK:Sum = ******** appears on the front display of the AV receiver/controller, indicating that the update has been completed. (Alpha-numeric characters on the front display are denoted by asterisks.)Step13:
Using the [ON/STANDBY] button on the front panel, turn off the AV receiver/controller and then remove the USB storage device.
* Do not use the [ON] or [STANDBY] button on the remote controller.Step14:
Push [ON/STANDBY] to turn on the AV receiver/controller.
Congratulations!! Now you have the latest firmware on your Onkyo AV receiver/controller.
