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.
