Can't control volume--too loud

Glad to see this thread is still alive. I just picked up the 515 used off Craig's List after having the owner do a demo of the unit, and all seemed to work well. Got it home, did a factory reset, made all the connections, and zero sound except from Pandora, which comes out at full-blast (master volume knob doesn't adjust)--the only way to kill the audio is to switch input or turn off the unit. This happens with each main speaker (tested individually--not touching the sub yet). Another oddity: the center channel sets itself to full when the master volume is set to "min," but at 1+, it behaves normally (I assume--still can't get a signal through, just hearing the "fuzz" of a maxed-out speaker).

FWIW, all video connections (so far) work--I haven't changed my Xbox360 output resolution yet--but audio is throwing me here. It's annoying that I can set up and run a concert audio rig in my sleep (17 years of doing that), but home theater audio is all "durrrrrr".

Audio Output Setup:
--C - Klipsch KCS-C1
--L/R - Cerwin Vega D-3
--Sub - Elan THP1200SW

Inputs:
--HDMI 7 - Chromecast (video good)
--HDMI 6 - AppleTV (video good)
--RGB - Xbox360 (not tested yet)
--TV - not tested yet
--Ethernet - Pandora audio works but no volume control (set to max)

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Recently got a used TX-NR515, it had the network dropping/audio issue, went onto the Onkyo forums & found out about the extended warranty offer if serial number qualified, mine did, so I sent it in & they repaired it for free.
Connected it to my Tosh Regza 55SV670U set & speakers, and all is working fine...except...the TV is turning itself off after a time. I have a WD Live SMP, and a Chromebox running openelec, and whether playing music or video, at some point it...just...turns..off. I have pored thru both manuals and setting of TV & AVR , but can't find anything that would cause this.
Anyone suggest something to look for? This is driving me batty.

The repair for the no sound/network was QUICK. Sent my receiver off Tuesday, they got it last Thursday, and shipped it back Friday and I got it back Tuesday and had everything set back up last night.

Still have to get used to the way DirecTV does the audio becasue when I had uVerse it would be DD 5.1 and I had it set to output in DTS Neo6 and now when I see the input/output it says 7.1 multichannel PCM/7.1 Multichannel and it seems like my center channel is getting drowned out more by the L/R channels than it used to. Also I have to raise the volume higher than I used to with uVerse.

Looking forward to more time with this receiver since it suits my needs perfectly now

Just ordered the packing materials & shipping label to send mine back tonight. I hope I also get a quick turnaround but I don't look forward to getting it all set up the way it was before.

One week turnaround for no sound repair. What a pain having to get it setup all over again, but glad it was repaired. When first connnected it kept shutting off but support got right back to me & suggested disconnecting speakers & unplugging for one hour and so far so good.

Well, "repaired" receiver will not stay on. Have to send it back again. What a pain. We've been without it nearly a month now.

Question Is this the symptom of the network recall?

The HDMI audio will not output at all on any input. Analog audio can still be selected and it works. Excessive clicking when fast forwarding on DVR and sometimes it will work if you power cycle the receiver?

Not exactly what happened to mine. Never checked with analog audio.
Have you gone to the website & entered your serial number?

I will check it soon. I cannot read it easily where it is installed.

HDMI auto-switching not working after board replacement

My TX-NR515 has just been repaired, having had its HDMI board replaced. Since I got it back I've noticed that it no longer automatically switches to my Chromecast HDMI source when I cast something to it. I now need to manually select the HDMI source that the Chromecast is connected to. Does anyone know why this might be, and whether there is a way of restoring the previous behaviour?

No audio on any inputs just hit my unit. Serial number is covered by recall. After it comes back from repair, I will be buying new/other AVR and selling this off, mostly to upgrade to 4K hdmi 2.0 hdcp 2.2 and better Audyssey level.

so i am having trouble figuring out what listening modes to use.

I have the TX-NR515 setup as a 5.1 setup

when just watching TV should I use All CH Stereo or something else

What about when I am watching a movie that has Dolby Digital sound what should I set the receiver too?
