No Network Settings Option

Is there an explanation for why the settings menu for hardware only goes from 7.1 - 7.5 for me? I'm missing the network option and the firmware option. I've googled this about 20 different ways, and I can't find anybody else describing the exact same issue.

I've downloaded the firmware and plugged it into both the front and back USB, but since I can't get the settings to work, it just says initialized and does nothing.

I'm setup through a control 4 system and my receiver doesn't output to a tv monitor to see the settings. Is there something here that I can only see on a TV?

Can you take a pic of just what you are seeing please?
I think I have it but want to be sure.
Temporarily connect a small monitor to any output HDMI display.

Hit setup and go from there.

Well, ARC isn't working anymore.
When I power on the receiver the TV picks it up and tries to send audio, after a few seconds it gives up and turns back on the TV speakers.


Tried powering off and unplugging the unit, powering off and unplugging the TV, replacing the HDMI cable, running through SETUP again (RIHD set to ON, ARC auto, TV/CD on ARC).


Nada.


Out of ideas, anyone have something similar occur?

I have two problems...1. I have a new DirecTV setup and a new Samsung 75HU8550 4K. I use HDMI control on all three. When I use trick play controls on my DirecTV remote like rewind the Onkyo makes relay clicking noises as if when detecting a change in audio formats. Is this good and should it be doing it? 2. When I turn on my TV, receiver and DirecTV the input always switches to TV from CBL/SAT. I have turned off the audio return channel setting on my Onkyo but it still does it. Is there a solution to that issue? Thanks!

1. Yup.
2. Set Anynet+ to OFF and instead connect an optical cable from the TV if you want to pass smart app audio to the AVR.

That is an indication of a board failure and one of the reasons (the other being no audio) that I had to return it for repair.

Hey All,

I had a quick question that I think I know the answer to but wanted some confirmation/advice. My NR809 lost functionality in an hdmi port recently (the hdmi sees no signal and just stays on the blue screen). I was disappointed, but I had a few more ports open so I just swapped to another one. It's been a couple of months now and I have lost functionality in most of my hdmi ports now. Is this indicative of the hdmi board failure that so many have experienced? I bought my receiver in December 2012 and haven't had any issue with it until a couple of months ago. Should I even try my luck with warranty support? Or is it time to move on? Do any of you suggest trying something else to get it working? I feel so upset that I might have lost my receiver...

Thanks everyone.

There's a sticky in this forum that I cannot link yet, but yes go through the warranty, Onkyo has acknowledged and extended the warranty for these failures until 2018.

Unhappy TX-NR809 Failure #2

About 6 months ago I sent my receiver in for repair for loss of audio through the special warranty program mentioned in this thread. I was very impressed with the efficiency of this program and resulting repair of my unit. The other day, my receiver began acting up in a different manner. When I attempt to power it on, it powers up for about 3 seconds and the turns itself back off. I checked all my speaker connections to be sure nothing could be shorting the connections. I went so far as to unplug everything and disconnect power for a day and then power it up without anything re-connected. It simply does not want to stay on. I assume it is performing a self test and turning off to avoid further damage but does anyone know of any additional testing I could perform before concluding it would require another trip to repair? If it does require a repair should I expect warranty coverage from the first repair? In other words could this failure be connected to the first if it was a shoddy repair?
