For the second time this week, my 818 has seemed to go dead. No response to anything. Then after a period of time (one after a minutes, the other time after 15 to 20 minutes) it came on.

Has anyone experienced this. Any thoughts?

If this has been going on for a while and you haven't taken advantage of Onkyo's free repairs occurring for the 818 I strongly suggest you do so.

It just started this week.

I was thinking that Into offer was just for HDMI. I'll call and see what I find out.

Always a good idea with an avr to first do a soft reset (unplugging it for a while) or a full reset before calling for service....

Yeah. I called then yesterday and they told me to unplug it for 6 hours. Interesting...6 hours. They also said it would not be under warranty, and that of unplugging it didn't fix it that it's likely the protection circuit.

I wonder how much that would cost to repair.

If it still happens try a full reset as well. Does the unit has plenty of breathing room? Checked speaker connections?

Looking For Headphone Recommendations

My hearing is getting worse as I get older. Even though my my setup is downstairs in the family room, I require a volume level that disturbs my wife upstairs at night.

I would like to get wireless headphones that connect to the Onkyo so I can listen to the TV at night. I have all my components plugged into the 818 with HDMI cables and have one HDMI cable going from the TV to the 818 using ARC. I really don't want to connect the headphones to the TV if I can help it.

Mike

Dolby Volume on High. Set the crossovers higher to reduce bass. Set the bass settings to -10.

I have had my 818 for a couple years, and don't get to use it much.

However, the last month or so we have been watching the playoffs and have used it quite a bit. My question pertains to Dolby Digital.....every time I turn the unit on, the center speaker level is set at -2.0 db (when looking at it in the "setup" popup menu). I bump it up to +1 or 2 and it sounds great. Off for a few days, turn it back on...center channel is back down to -2db. WTF. Can anyone tell me how to set it so it STAYS at +1??

Hi blkz06, most likely you're using the Q Setup button >Audio menu for center level adjustment, these settings are temporary adjustment. Go the "Speaker Setup" (menu 2) under "Level Calibration" to set the center to save.
