Wink Please help me Drive 6 speakers same music on TX-NR809

All,

I need to re-purpose my receiver. I want to use it for a bathroom and have 6 speakers playing music (no-surround). How would you recommend I set it up?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Rob

Set it on a shelf near the tub. When somebody is in your tub that you have issues with (and perhaps is reaching for your ppk), knock it into the tub.

Should work as well as a heater... a sparkling theater, so to speak.

Question HDMI audio from TV?

Hi

I have HDMI out going to my plasma TV. I thought there was the ability for the audio from the TV to travel to AVR if I'm watching OTA channels. Am I wrong about that?

Thanks!

My sincere thanks to everyone who makes AVSforum such an awesome resource.

your correct - it's called ARC (Audio Return Channel)

It is on page 61 of the user manual under Audio Return Channel.

I took me awhile to get that working. I don't remember the details but I had to set multiple things on both the TV and the receiver.

The other day my 809 stopped playing audio through HDMI, but the picture was fine. I tried FM and radio work fine as well. I unplugged it and waited a few mins and plugged it back in. I had to do that for a couple of days and then the "work around" stopped working. I did a factory reset and that didn't get it working again either. I almost connected my old 803 and decided to try the 809 before I unconnected everything and it has been working since. I didn't do anything different, it just started working again.

What issue am I looking at with my 809 and audio not playing as it should over HDMI?
Is it the HDMI board, or something else? If it is the HDMI board, what is the cost to repair?


Thanks

Here's your solution Onkyo acknowledges failed units and extending warrranties until 2018


After you get it repaired for FREE send me a check!


BTW, this is right at the top of the audio section under "stickies". You can't miss it............well, I guess you can!


Yer welcome!

Not really - I also bought the extended warranty. It wasn't that expensive and when I s/w Onkyo they stated that the extension only covers this one issue! Nothing else!
