Well, after giving my 818 a static ip addr I'm still having connection issues so I reenabled dhcp & unplugged the unit & I can use vtuner dlna once again. My tv & bluray player are all connected to the same wifi hub & have no connection issues, just the 818! Is there anything else I can try short of sending the stupid thing in for repair sigh. Thx

Just got my unit back from repair for the hdmi no sound issue.

Strange thing happening right now.
If I go into the menu and go to speaker configuration, once I select speaker configuration, the Onkyo locks up for 5 seconds, then the tv screen goes black. Tv shows no signal.
The front of the Onkyo is showing the menu. I can make changes there but no video is output.

I have to power cycle the receiver to get the screen back. I did do a factory reset on the receiver.

Anyone have any idea what might be happening?

I think I may have a HDMI problem. Lately I have noticed my TX-NR818 stating HDMI start up when I power it on. I've never noticed this before. I replaced HDMI cables, tried a different TV as well as a different blue Ray player. Still gives the same. This only occurs when I first turn on the unit and only last 15-30 seconds.
Any help would be appreciated Thx

I think you have just never noticed it before. Mine says that every time it is turned on and has done so since day one. I assume it is displaying this while it is establishing proper handshake with the other devices.

Mine has always done this as well

Sometimes our circuits get shorted by external interference,
Signals get crossed and the balance distorted by internal incoherence.

Dunno, 30 seconds sounds a bit excessive. Probably it's more like one of those things that's always been there. If for whatever reason the length of time may have changed to make it noticeable? That might be a reason to check connections, setup type concern....

Mine had never done this either, until a couple weeks ago. I know for a fact, that it is not "something I haven't noticed before"...as I have watched this unit closely, since it replaced my lemon plagued 807. I have just filed for the repair, as now...within the last week it has gone unresponsive. (classic HDMI board symptoms.) Power disconnect only helped the first two times. Complete factory reset helped once, until it was powered off for the night.

My first indication was that I could not power it on with the app...nor could any of my devices find it on the network.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I forsee a repair in your near future.
Good Luck

Answering my own question to possibly help others that may run into this.
I did a "FORCE UPDATE" for the firmware. I was on the latest version but decided to flash it again anyway.
Fixed everything for me.
If you want to force a firmware flash, hold the usb source button and the standbye at the same time. Press enter.

Glad this worked for me. Did not want to send this in again and be without for two weeks again.

Mine is working flawlessly, and it too from day one has shown the HDMI start up message. It works flawlessly with the network and the mobile app as well.
