Despite this being my hobby for decades, I too am looking for something similar for my Onkyo TX-NR 929. I assume you've seen or downloaded the onlilne user manual. I find it very clinical to the point of being brief, considering the myriad of options for setup let alone enjoying every last feature.
Even though the 929 was hard to come by for a while, I wonder if Onkyo is taking a sales hit because of it's recent HDMI board problems. I say this because unlike other receivers with their "Official XXXX" threads, I find this lacking at least for the 929. That's often where you turn to for tweaking that won't be in the manual.
You probably know the 828 is not the 818 replacement for 2013. The 929 is closer to the 818 but with even more features. Still the 727, 828 and the 929 need what you're talking about.
If you can check your running temperatures and they're in the high 90s or low 100s, you probably have a newer HDMI board. That's where my 929 is but my Integra DTC9.8 pre-pro without those 9 amps, ran about 30-35 degrees hotter.
I think it would behoove Onkyo to touted any such improvements considering the hits they have been taking in places like AVS.
