JD I did do that. It allows me to get the unit back operational but back to the factory settings.

I do a quick set up test the network and try to update again with no luck. It does the exact same thing described above.

Is there another way to administer the update? As in download it to a laptop and install through a usb flash drive. I believe this would be my second update. I did one when I first got the unit early last year.

Thanks for the help

No way to load update other than via network for USA models. Try setting the IGMP proxy setting on the router to OFF, otherwise try a different router.

I can get them both within $150 dif. Replacing an SR5005 and am torn. I need almost none of the features of the 7008 but am considering it on essentially the Audyssey XT32 alone over a 5009. The 5009 wireless is superfluous for my needs.

It's a personal call of course, but if the additional cost is in your budget, then the SR7008.

I have a problem wire the Remote to the sr7008. It will not react when i try and change input channel etc. It shows a small line in the top right corner in the display on the remote. I have not had this problem before. Any ideas?

Thanks

Yup. It means you have Zone 2 turned ON and selected on the remote. Turn Zone 2 OFF.

TobyR,

Have a read of Keith Barnes article on the difference between Audyssey XT and XT32 here: "Official" Audyssey thread (FAQ in post #51779). FYI, that write-up was enough to convince me to step up to XT32 and not go with a inferior REQ.

Maranatz SR-7009(on order), Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik F12G

Better audyseey = better sound, plus your resale value will be better with the 7008.that said I settled on the 7008 vs the 7009 because I don't value Dolby Atmos or care about wifi for the xtra money. I mean your already spending over 1k I assume anyways, whats another 150$ for a better product

In addition to Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D and built-in Wifi/Bluetooth, the SR7009 also features Smart Select buttons (aka Quick Select on Denon AVRs) which are custom settings for up to 4 sources in each zone. It also features custom 2CH stereo settings (LARGE/SMALL, volume, crossover, subwoofer (Y/N)) formerly only on the Denon AVRs as well.

Ok 3 routers later no luck.

Here is something I notice. If I cycle the power on the unit now and test the internet connect I get no router access. I unplug and plug in the Ethernet cable only and retest I'm back in business. But yet still as its authenticating the update after a minute or 2 it shuts the unit off and then tries to reinstate the update resulting in no connection 0e.

I'm now plugged directly into my comcast xfinity cable modem.

Hi,

Just setup my new 7008, extremely pleased, obvious improvement over my Onkyo 805.

I'm a bit confused regarding the setup with my HTPC though, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I configured the setup in Windows 8.1 to 5.1 with small speakers all around (got Totem Rainmakers) as well as 24bits 192 kHz playback.

I can get bitstream no problem for DD DTS HD + etc.. However, I just played back some regular mp3 (stereo) and the display constantly shows up as PCM multichannel 5.1 and in fact, my surrounds were working (loud at that!) and so was the center. Pressing the sound mode button didn't do anything, no cycling through

If the display reads MULT CH IN, then your HTPC is indeed passing a 5.1 PCM signal.

hmm so in this case it's VLC creating the additionnal streams ? After all the original source was strictly stereo and when I listen to lets say, a youtube video, it does come out only in 2.1 (even though the receiver displays Multi Ch in).

I wonder why it does that.

Some TV stations do something similar .... broadcast a stereo 2.0 signal over a DD 5.1 audio track.
