You know the only negative thing I hold against my 818 is the slow track skipping with the USB port + MP3. I really wish they would have fixed it.

Make sure it's in the correct format. When you unzip the download, it will create a folder named Onkyoxxxxxxxx. You don't want that folder. Copy the contents of that folder to a flash drive. Also, make sure the flash drive has nothing else on it.

Good luck

If you are happy with it, just leave it. However, you can try plugging the USB in and power cycling the receiver. When it boots, it should say "initializing USB" or something like that and then give you the option to update using the files on the USB drive.

I am having trouble getting my receiver to connect to the Network. The last time I used network functionality on it was a few weeks ago, and when I went to connect today it just went to black screen and in really tiny letters on the front of the receiver the word "Net" blinked. I tried going to the initial setup and doing the network connection test, and it said no connection was available. So I took the ethernet cable connected to my TV and switched it with the one connected to the receiver. They are both plugged into a TP-Link network switch. The TV could still connect and the receiver still could not. Don't really know what else to do but a full factory reset which I don't really want to do, as I don't fell like doing Audyssey all over again. Any other suggestions?

Try just unplugging it for a while?

I updated my NR818 with a usb memory stick formatted with FAT32 file system. Put the ONKAVR000E_MAMAMAMAM9MAMA_116.zip file on the blank memory stick and unzip to the root directory of the stick. You should have 5 files in the root of the memory stick and 5 files in a folder named "AVR000E_Release". Put your memory stick in the front usb port and push the USB button on the remote until the display says "USB Front". You should then be able to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

I stream my flac music files to the NR818 with a free piece of software called Foobar2000 (Windows Only!). It works great and I'm really liking NeoX Music surround on my 7.1 system, it sounds great once calibrated with the Audyssey MultEQ XT32. I have no issues with 24p video and I play with lots of different sources (blu-ray disc, DVD disc, and MKV files). The NR818 is capable of terrific sound and video.

Try unplugging the ethernet cable and power cycle the receiver. It should show "reinitializing" for a few seconds and then resume normal function. Now turn off the receiver and reinsert the ethernet cable and power on. The receiver should reinitialize and reset your network connection. Hope this helps.
I forgot to mention that network standby needs to be unenabled or this won't work since it keeps the network alive and it won't reinitialize..
