From what I can tell my sub is working fine. Sorry to hear about your trouble.

Those who have their Energy take classics connected to the 1040 what do you have the phase switch set to on the sub? Currently I have it to 0.

I was reading the Sound and Vision review, it's states:
"Sound Effects includes a Digital Legato Linear feature designed to enhance lossy audio; turn it off for Blu-ray and other high-quality audio sources." Where is this feature it said under Sound Effects but I don't see it.

Interesting. I hade a complete set of martin logan mlt1 hooked up to my new 1040, only thing I have noticed is that I had the speakers set to small (by the way they sound awsome but my room is too big for them) and had no problems with the sub sound issue. I upgraded my speakers to the infinity p363, set them to large and that's when I noticed it started to do that low sub sound.

Hi,

Perhaps one of you could help, I seem to have an issue with my STR-DN1040 and cannot watch TV when selected from the GUI.


I have a high speed 10.2Gbps HDMI cable going from the HDMI (ARC) of my LG 3D Smart TV (55LM7600) to the HDMI (ARC) on the receiver.


The GUI settings are:
Control for HDMI : On
Pass Through : On/Off (no difference)

HDMI Audio Out : AMP

 

So when I select TV in the GUI's WATCH, nothing seems to happen just black screen. Ive tried connecting an optical audio cable to both, which works fine but have to exit the GUI.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Check to see if you have the correct resolution settings ie 1080p. You may have 4 k selected and that will not work on a 1080p smart tv , you can also try 17 Gbps hdmi leads they work brilliant on my onkyo 616 .

Using AIRPLAY keeps the unit on indefinitely, even after you are done using iTunes. The receiver must be shutdown manually.

This is per a online chat I just had with Sony support:

6:06 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Hi. Welcome to Sony Online Support. My name is Harold. Please allow me a moment to review your concern.
6:07 PM Harold - (C5ND):
I understand that you are unable to turn your receiver OFF. Is that correct?
6:08 PM Customer:
Not exactly. Using Airplay keeps the receiver on indefinitely after itunes is no longer being streamed. The unit must be manually shut off.
6:09 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Thank you for the information.
6:10 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Has this occurred before , or is this the first time?
6:10 PM Customer:
It has happened ever since I started using the unit. In case you were wondering, I do have the most recent firmware.
6:11 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Alright. Does it happen only when you play from iTunes?
6:12 PM Customer:
That is the only streaming feature I have used so far, so I don't know if it occurs with the other streaming features.
6:13 PM Harold - (C5ND):
I checked the information and it is a normal operation.
6:14 PM Harold - (C5ND):
You will have to switch Off the receiver manually when using Airplay feature of your device.
6:14 PM Customer:
This is normal?
6:14 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Yes. You are correct.
6:14 PM Customer:
OK. Thanks.
6:15 PM Harold - (C5ND):
You are welcome.
6:15 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Is there anything else I may assist you with?
6:15 PM Customer:
No, I'm good.
6:15 PM Harold - (C5ND):
Thank you for contacting Sony Online Support.

Anyone know if there is a way to turn off the mute every time you turn on the receiver ?. I am thinking no and I'll have to just live with it.

I'm looking for some info about the multi room function of this unit.

I am hooking this up to a ABUS System currently in the house. The past owner left everything behind. I'm pretty sure I just have to hook up the RCA jacks from the 1040 to the RCA IN on the AB-202 unit . After reading the manuel for the 1040, around page 88 or so, it talks about using a second Amp for the second zone. That kind of defeats my purpose. I'm hoping just to use the 1040 to distribute through out the house.

From what you guys can tell, if I run the RCA cables directly to the AB-202 distributor I should be able to listen to the zone 2 outputs listed on 89 through out the four rooms of my house via the Abus, right?

The AVR is not designed to power more than 2 additional speakers if you have a 5.1 setup in the main zone. Connect the Zone 2 pre-outs to an external amp (or another AVR) and then connect the ABUS to that external amp as discussed in the Owner's manual.

If your having that much trouble I would def send the Sony 1040 back and go for an onkyo , onkyo is by far a much better make the 727 will beat the 1040 hands down , even the onkyo 616 wips the 1040s arse and that is last year's model , the 616s got more power into not just 8 ohms but 6 aswell , you can even set it at 4ohms as well , THX certified been tested heavily to spec , 8 hdmi, 2 usbs , powered second zones as in 18 speaker connections not 14 like the 1040, 2 hdmis out, weighs 25 pound , better chassis and heavier power supply than the 22 pound Sony 1040; also what do the ratings mean this 1150 watts , the Sony can produce 165 WATTS yes into one speaker MONO, really who uses one speaker , check out bench tests for the 1040 , even the onkyo 609 ( 2011 model ) beats the 1040. onkyos are user freindly I bought the onkyo 616 for 269 pound brand new , have had no problems love it , best off getting end of line models better value for money by far .

What a coincidence... I am here now because my Onkyo TX-NR609 HDMI board blew after 22 months of relatively soft use. I have two friends in the same boat with many combined horror storys of getting support and replacement. Call it game over for me. I owned and loved Onkyo since the mid 80s but I am done. Search for the 616 (replaces the 609) in the forums and reviews and you will see it has many problems too. I am prepared to sacrifice some bells and whistles for a receiver that actually emits sound. Call me crazy. Now I am shopping Sony, Yamaha and Dennon...if I ever do get my Onkyo back it will be located in my shop where I can shoot it if necessary.

I chose the Onkyo 818 because of the great reviews on the receiver. Great quality, and terrific features. Better than this year's Onkyo to be exact (feature-wise).

Sony products generally are very reliable, so I am sure you will enjoy it.

I big difference is signal to noise ratios. If you want a Sony with comparable specs to Onkyo, buy a Sony ES receiver.

If you actually checked out the test bench for the 1040 you'll see that it matches or exceeds all the AVRs in its price range and many above it.

madurodave,

 

Hope you have great luck with that higher model. It probably has a different component set and form factor at that higher price point. I am still in research mode. Unfortunately most of the reported issues seem to appear 18+ months down the road. Lots of good reviews and only now the bad news is becoming evident. Upside: Maybe they have actually fixed the issue across the product lines? I just know it's time for a change. I found on a thread on this very forum that encapsulates the story with overheating and HDMI board issues... http://www.avsforum.com/t/1389362/onkyo-tx-nr906-hdmi-issues. I am sure there are more.

 

best of luck!

Lol man..... who do I believe? My buddy bought a onkyo 626 and it sounds super clean, super krisp. The onkyo 727 might be out of my price range so I think i will get the 626 since I already know what it sounds like. Im getting the 5 year warranty so im not too worried if it goes out on me.

I know that is what the manual says, but I'm pretty sure the previous owner was just running the Abus off the same receiver. I guess there is no harm in trying it before using another Amp, right? If t does not work then I guess I have to hook the old amp up to it.

If you care to go back a page (page 15 ) you will see I have already quoted the correct power ratings for the Sony 1040.

Hi,I'm in the UK and have been getting this mismatch signal(handshake?) problem with the 1040,for example when
i change from using my laptop on av3 using tv/amp/audio via optical to av2 to watch tv using tv/amp/sky hd i get this intermittent
mismatch and the screen goes blank/green or pink/then snow..
This can happen 4 times aprox in 1 day or sometimes once in 3 days but will never go away.
I've been on the Sony forum and a tech guy has put me through all type of fixes for it but nothing works.
Is this this some sort of common fault with this amp,as there are lots of people complaining about the same problem.
I've given up trying to fix this this problem being as i've exhausted all avenues.
Anyone with the same problem stateside?

Yeah, I will see how it goes. I still have an Onkyo 807 that gets hot and is inside a cabinet. No issues at all so far on that.

I am glad I got last year's model - saved some good money and it has great features.

Then you know that the onkyo's you mentioned have nothing on it. smile.gif

A difference of 10 or 20 watts is meaningless and insignificant.

Perhaps I should have said "safely" 7 CH as you can likely have it power more than that before it shuts down in protection mode.

The 727 perhaps for at least it uses Audyssey MultEQ which can EQ the sub; however, the 616 only uses the most basic Audyssey 2EQ which cannot EQ the subwoofer.

I didn't know you could adjust the sub with the 727. Maybe that might be my best bet. Oh, and also, I called Crutchfield today cuz I had some questions about thedef tech pc 2000 cuz I was interested in buying one. So long story short we started talking about receivers and told him that I just bought the 1040 and was thinking about returning it and getting an onkyo. As soon as I said the word sony, he cut me off and said to return it right away and and get an onkyo from the 626 and up lol. That sony isn't up to date with their receivers like onkyo and othe big receiver brands. He said that they benchmark at Crutchfield and the 1040 didn't do so well. I think that really helped to make up my mind, bye bye to sony this weekend and hello to onkyo.

Does the 626 have the Audyssey MultiEQ so I could EQ the sub? If it does then this might be all I need and could save some cash biggrin.gif

Hello,

 

I just set up my 1040 and I have a question regarding Home Network and Streaming from my computer.  I have my 1040 hooked up to my wireless router and am able to stream music.  However, it only happens some of the time. Most of the time my Windows Media Player will say that no device is detected. Even though the 1040 will show up in My Network and I've allowed the streaming and etc.  I believe it has to do with having a dynamic IP address. I had an issue with a printer that would be available when I installed the driver, but the next day not work and would be considered offline.  I called Dell support and they basically said it was an IP issue and switched the printer to a static IP and I've had no issues since.

 

I found how to enter a static IP address onto the receiver, but I don't know which IP address to assign it or how to make sure it's properly set up on my computer and recognized.

 

Can anyone help me out?

 

I'm totally lost.

 

Thanks
