Receivers power supplies are shared by all channels. For this reason receivers typically push more power per channel when fewer speakers are connected. Since your surround back speakers are the only ones drawing current from your Onkyo it should be capable of pushing the full 135w to each of them if needed. My configuration is similar to yours to yours.

That is my thinking as well.

Anyone have this receiver connected to a Vizio M series TV? Built in codes do not work, but I was hoping someone had alternate codes to try.

Thanks.

I do but I use a harmony remote rather than the Onkyo remote.

I have a Harmony Smart Hub. And use my ipad and Samsung Note3 as a remote. But I still prefer the tactile buttons on the Onkyo remote.

So get rid of your Smart Hub and get a real Harmony remote.

I really don't like any of the higher end Harmony remotes. I'm still in the return window with Best Buy. I'm still debating on keeping the Smart Hub or returning it. All the Harmony remotes I've tried just don't feel right to me in my hand. The Onkyo remote is perfect. Except that I can't find the access code that works for the new Vizio 4k TV I bought 2 weeks ago. If I could get the Onkyo remote to control the TV, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

The new remotes do not look ergonomic at all....I loaded up on the harmony 900 and Ones off eBay.

I would try the ONE if I were you

thanks. I've had a few Harmony Remotes. They either felt terrible in the hand or the contacts for charging died. I like the hub remote access on my Smart phones more so than the Ipad. I hate having to look at a remote to get it to work. That is why I like the Onkyo remote so much. Everything is right where I need it and they are tactile buttons. No need to look once you get used to it.

I'm watching a few Ones on Ebay now. We'll see. I'm probably going to return the Smart hub. If necessary, I think I can get the Onkyo remote to learn the new Vizio M Series codes if I'm not mistaken. Have to set some time out this weekend to give it a shot.

Thanks!

I use the 650. Seems best to me for button layout and cost. Dirtied up charging contacts got to be a pain with the others so back to 650 with batteries.

I have a brand new ONE, circa 2009, in box. Do you know if that's a good one?

We had 3 880's but one by one buttons began to fail but the Harmony ONE is the ONE to rule them all! I just bought a new battery since it was not keeping a charge throughout the day. IF I had to buy a new remote my eyes and $ would be on the URC R40 remote.
