Thanks a lot for any info on this!
The front RCA on 809 are inputs and not outputs. May be if you could draw a picture as to what your intent is, that would help.

On the back of the receiver, there are rca's labeled "front" in the preamp section. I'm sorry for any confusion.

I don't think you can do what you suggest as you would have to use the front panel jacks as an input, eliminating Pandora as a source. However, you could set zone 2 to the Pandora source, take the zone 2 line out into your EQ and send the output into the any of the unused inputs front or back.

Add a laptop cooling pad on top that has a 180 - 220 mm fan that sucks upward. That drops the temp significantly.

Help with HDMI ARC problem

I have a Samsung UN75f8000 setup using anynet+ and the Onkyo 809 setup using HDMI control. I use the DirectTV to remote to power on the TV which in turns powers up the 809. It works momentarily but after a few seconds the audio goes out and the receiver shows 'analog' on the screen vs HDMI. To get the audio back on, I have to switch the TV input off the satellite and then back onto the satellite. Then I have audio again. I can reproduce this every single time and I have also found other posts on the internet that seem to describe the same symptoms. I do not know if this applies to all firmwares as my TV and Onkyo are all upgraded to the latest. I did read a post elsewhere where the owner had the same problem but only after upgrading to latest firmware. My receiver did work well before with ARC using a Vizio TV and older Onkyo firmware but when I recently got this new TV I upgraded my Onkyo firmware at the same time. Is there a fix for this? Is this potentially related to that repair recall?

Oh okay.
IMHO that is not such a good idea just to use that old EQ. Not much you can get apart from the complicating the connections and possibly landing into some ground loop hum..

So our 809 randomly won't play any sound some times. I have no idea why this started happening. It works fine doing everything else. It will pass video through no problem. It has no issues otherwise but this is a huge issue. When the sound isn't working it won't even play any sounds out of the speaker during speaker test. Turning it on and off doesn't help nor does switching inputs. I've tried doing a factory reset and at first i thought it worked but it stopped working again and another reset didn't do anything. I don't if this something i can fix or if this is a clear case of hardware failure and it needs to be sent in for repairs.

Sounds like an HDMI board failure to me. Better call Jose.

I just had this happen to me over the weekend too...I attempted to stream Sirius and was getting network failures. I thought it was a network problem, but then I noticed I couldn't get any sound at all from any source. I unplugged unit, and still no sounds.

Left unplugged overight and on Sunday I had sound. I never heard of the HDMI board issue until I just caught up on this forum this AM.

I emailed Jose (as I found a thread with his contact email). How agonizing is this issue / getting fixed going throught Onkyo?

I thought about contacting Crutchfield whom I bought it from and seeing if I can get it repaired from them or any $ issued to me to upgrade to a new receiver all together as I've been contemplating upgrading to Dolby Atmos anyways.

Any help appreciated!!!

My receiver died last night so I am very sad, should I buy another 809 or should I upgrade? If you all recommend I upgrade, what Onkyo receiver should I get?


Thank you for all your help!

If my 809 died already I'd definitely not recommend getting one just like it!!!

I have a 15 year old Onkyo receiver that still works. I am having issues w/ my 809 after only 28 months which I assume is the HDMI issue. If it is, I am seriously considering switching to a Denon. Seems like Onkyo's quality has gone down over the passed decade. I've now had 2 crap out on me in the past 4 years, both around the 2 year mark.

Frustrating!!!

Frustrating yes but with more integration and complexity this type of thing can happen.

At least they are covering the units and even paying shipping both ways even after the warranty expired. That certainly isn't the standard with most companies!

It isn't necessarily their fault if the capacitors are bad but it really is annoying.

The heat related to HDMI boards and more amplifier channels probably also contributes to the board failures. They probably should have had more heat sinks and fans internally but we can solve the issue for $20 with an external laptop cooling pad.

For some perspective, I am replacing my refrigerator today after 5 years it won't defrost the condenser due to a temperature sensor/electronics issue and leaks water on my floor. 5 years with a fridge is a far sight worse than the fridge my parents had for 30 years. It isn't only the electronics industry where things don't last like they used to. My parents fridge also didn't have water in the door, separate cooling for the fridge/freezer, temperature controlled cripsers, etc. With features and complexity comes problems.

For the price Onkyo's features and watts are very hard to beat.

True on all accts.. guess I shouldn't knock Onkyo to much as you're right, most electronics now a days just don't last like they used to. I've heard of multipke people having to replace fridges / dishwashers after only a couple years.

At least they're stepping up and correcting this issue...hope to get it resolved quickly so I can begin to look for my next upgrade.

So I finally got my 809 all setup and working - back from my HDMI board (no sound) issue, and I think there's a new problem.

When playing an analog audio source like the wii, whenever the receiver goes into 'pure audio' mode it just resets?

Related issue? Anyone else experiencing this? I don't have a lot of analog audio sources to test but can find some if need be...

Did you send you 809 to Onkyo for repair, where they said 7-10 days for the repair? If so, just curious how long it actually took you to get your receiver back?

Sorry to hear of your new problem. I don't have anything to test out on that front. Hopefully you get it resolved!!!

Yes, it was the 'one-time warranty extension free repair' or whatever they called it. Although here in Canada it took about 3 weeks I think to get it back.

I sent my 809 in for the HDMI board warranty repair and it came back and had been working just great...
HAD BEEN.
Last night my wife tells me that she can get a picture on screen. I troubleshoot for a while to eliminate the XBO and any other culprits from the blame.
In the end I had to enable dual HDMI output and use the sub-monitor output to get video out to the TV.
I have had the *repaired* unit for about 2 weeks.

Anyone else have an immediate re-failure on a repaired 809, or specifically this output issue?
