Thanks, I went and ordered the one I posted, hope this does the job and I get at least a couple of more years out of this AVR.

So, I just searched this thread for fans (to remind myself about my purchase 7 years ago) and found this, which seems to be the latest iteration of what I originally bought. As mine seem to be cr@ppin' out, I bought this from Amazon Coolerguys Dual Blower Fan Component Cooler with Manual Speed Control (Lite)

Product Description
Coolerguys Dual Blower Fan Component Cooler with Manual Speed Control (Lite)

We created this kit for use on components which have vents on the top of them, simply place the blower fans on top and it'll suck the warm air out of the device and shoot it out the back.
Works great to cool Receivers, DVRs and other media equipment.

This kit comes with:

2 Coolerguys 12v Blower Fans
1 500mA 110-12v AC-DC Power Supply
1 Dual 3pin Manual 12V DC Variable Speed Controller
Everything you need to power and control both blower fans to cool off your equipment.

Fan Specifications:

Dimensions: 120x120x25mm
Bearing: Dual Ball
Rated voltage: 12v
Operating voltage range: 8-12v
Rated Current: 0.18A
Lock rotor current: 0.16A
Rated Power: 2.16W
Rated Speed: 1000 RPM±10%
Air Flow: 17 CFM
Static Air Pressure: 5.6 mmAq(InchH20)
Noise Level: 19.8 dB(A)
Life Expectancy: 50,000 Hours @ 25C
SKU: 840556094326

I bought this one from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/CabCool-Lite-C...+Home+Theaters

It has worked fine, and keeps the unit cool.

I was looking at getting the new 1030 Onkyo, but to make it a 7.1.4 I need an amp. Can I make my 805 into an amp?

Since the 1030 has pre-outs, yes. The 805 has multi-channel inputs. Set it to Pure Audio mode. This is also my plan for upgrading to a 3D/4K AVR.

Will the volume on the 805 (used as an amp) go up or down according to what the pre-out of the 1030 does?


I justed tested with my OPPO player, I have the 7.1 dedicated going to multichannel on receiver. I put the oppo to variable out and the volume went up and down on the Onkyo Thanks!!!

Just shows it's value. One doesn't replace it, one adds to it. If it was any other non-Atmos, non-3D receiver, it would be up on craigslist.

After seven years of ownership, I'm planning on using my 805's Zone 2 capability. Now I find that only analog sources are compatible with Zone's 2 and 3. Most of my content comes through my home theater PC. What is a good work-around for getting digital content to play on Zone 2?

♦ ...Analog only. ...So, best to to connect your digital components with also analog connections. ...I'm sure you have tons of analog interconnects around.

HDMI output

Hi
Sorry, I am sure it has been discussed but there are a ton of pages of messages about the 805. We purchased ours back in 2007 as part of our home theatre system. A couple years back the HDMI out quit working. We have been bandaiding it for the past few years (running the HDMI directly from projector to DVD player and switching to SAT receiver when needed) and using sound cords to the receiver for speakers. Not optimal but couldnt justify the expense of a new receiver.

I am not very technical so I probably dont have the best system but it works for our little family.

Our projector is a Sharp XVZ-12000 so it only displays up to 1080i. We purchased a new Sony receiver only to find out it wont work with our projector. So back to square one. I think I would just like to get the ONKYO fixed.

What solutions are out there for the HDMI out fix that these machines have had?

TIA!
Kari

I would simply get something newer. ...It's not worth the aggravation to search for repairs.

Yeah, get a new receiver with preouts (an inexpensive one to use as a pre/pro), and use your 805's internal amps. ...Some' like that.
And 2007 is eight years ago; that's a long time.

Eight years old? That's 56 in dog years (...the same principle applies with electronics)

Unfortunately due to the age of the 805, it can't be repaired.
The parts just aren't available, and even if they were,
it would probably cost too much anyway.
Going hdmi straight to the pj and analog audio to the 805 isn't
necessarily a bad thing. It probably still sounds pretty good
