^ There have been reports early on in this thread about issues with HDMI switchers and not all work the same with this old 805. Maybe searching the thread for switchers might yield an answer.

When I shutdown the system at the end of the day, I do not power-down the Cable box, but I do power-down the 805.So the Cable-HDMI input into the HDMI-switcher remains powered on, but it ends there as switcher output to the 805 is powered-off. When I restart the system (i.e., the next day), the video comes on through the 805 (and then to the TV), but there is no sound. I then have to play around, such as selecting a different switcher input port. Eventually when I return back to the cable-TV input, I can get the audio working. A pain.


It appears like when the 805 is powered-up, it could be the switcher box is not passing the audio through. Or perhaps the 805 is not detecting the HDMI 'audio' signal coming from the switcher for the Cable-TV HDMI although the video is getting passed through. Any thoughts on this? Something I should check, or some 805 setting perhaps? Thanks.
I use a 3<->1 HDMI switch. I've been using one kind or another since I bought my 805. I also switch off all power to the 805, the switch, and the units connected to the switch. I do not use a Comcast set-top box (I use a TiVo). I have not experienced your problem. Does the problem resolve if you manually switch inputs on the 805?

Are you talking' to me?

Plug the power cord for the switch into the outlet on the back of the 805

Doooh! With all the cable movements I did recently, this one alluded me. In other words, when you power-down the system, also power-down the switch. On power-up, everything starts up in a refreshed mode. So far the testing works. Hopefully it continues. (Thanks for waking me up! )

Thanks for the other replies also. Hopefully I can put this to rest.

I will use it in a secondary system or it will even work great as a 7 channel amp if need be.
The amps in it are quite awesome as everyone here already knows.
I'm in the same boat.

Just upgraded my TV to a 75" Sony XBR850D from a 73" Mitsubishi 73735.
It's been a long time since I setup my home theater and I've never had one problem with my trusty Onkyo 805. It's been pretty much rock solid but I fear that using it as my AV receiver with the new TV and the XBOX One S will possibly cause problems. I know it doesn't support HDMI 1.4 as I could not pass 3D for my current set through it so I had to bypass the receiver for 3D. Not that big of a deal.

With that said, if you were to replace the 805 what model would you go with? Have Sony receivers come back with regard to quality? If I remember right they weren't very strong other than the ES line (was kinda pricey) back when I got the Onkyo.

I was thinking to get the Marantz 6011. This 805 is still going strong but I am slowly loosing HDMI input channels. And even with a complete open cabinet with fans the 805 has been shutting down lately after 2+ hours of watching video. I'll wait till I get no video out of it before I retire it for sound only!

Oh no, that's stinks! Loved my 805, such a beast. Only reason I changed was new cabinet was smaller and didn't fit it (ended up getting a 636). In fact, I still have my 805 in the box stored away in closet. Anyone interested in it? I know not the right forum but you all are THE right people who would want it. I'd rather go to one of you then to someone who wouldn't really appreciate it.

I hate the thought of selling it. It works really well still and is an open space so no need for fans although it does get warm after two hours of watching a movie. I hate to think that it's only going to sell for $50 or sit in a closet wasting away.

I am thinking of using it to drive the outdoor speakers and the other rooms. Runs cool for music!

Well for what it's worth, looking like my choices are going to be either the Denon AVR-X1300W or AVR-X2300W as of now.
The good news is that my new TV has optical out and bringing all of my gear into the TV and using the optical out has worked fine so far. Maybe I can keep my 805 after all.

Optical out is limited to 5.1 DD/DTS. Even if you're only running a 5.1 speaker system, you will lose any audio advantage of sources with TrueHD/DTS-HD if you feed them to the TV first.

My 805 is still going strong. I was able to find one at a steal of a price when they changed over to the 806. I have Klipsch KLF-30 main speaker, a Klipsch KLF-C7 center channel, and Klipsch KS-525-TX surrounds.
The 805 drives them flawlessly. I recently upgraded to a Vizio P65-C1 TV, and I'm still working out the bugs when trying to watch Amazon Video through my 805 via a Sony Blu-Ray with Amazon Video built-in.
Getting the video up and running isn't a problem other than additional steps and remotes involved. But, any time I pause a video, or go to the next episode, I loss sound. I have to press the setup button on the receiver, and then exit setup, and the sound returns. Very weird anomaly.
Otherwise, the 805 has been solid in all respects. Added twin, thermostatically controlled fans to my cabinet (CoolerGuys). Never had a problem with heat buildup.

Thanks for your feedback regarding your 805; my 605 is still going strong, too, and I wish I could have splurged for that monster of an AVR that was the 805...

Do you find it powers your speakers just fine without the need for an external amp?

ummm...I dunno, but I think "drives them flawlessly" is a yes to your question.

I was looking for more specifics regarding how his AVR handles powering duties beyond "drives them flawlessly," but I suppose my query can be taken as redundant on the surface; I wanted to know more about how he feels it drives them "effortlessly," including thoughts on headroom, clipping, distortion, etc.

As you called it "that monster of an AVR" , it would appear you are familiar with it's reputation. It has been tested before and proven to be one of the most powerful amplifier sections in an AVR of recent times. I'm sure a quick Google search would find the test results.

I just checked the Klipsch KLF-30. It's an 8 ohm speaker with 102 db sensitivity. That is a walk in the park for pretty much any AVR, much less the 805.

I had (still have it) an 805 for years running 89-90 db speakers and it had no issues at all driving them to very high levels. The 805 got warm, but never sounded strained or distorted, so it would yawn at the high efficiency Klipsch speakers.

A most extensive review that sold me (well, it and the countless AVSForum folks who gave the 805 multiple thumbs up)...

I recently upgraded to the Onkyo RZ900. Nothing wrong with the 805 but wanted to move to 4K pass through and Dolby Atmos. I was concerned I would be disappointed but not the case. Sound was significantly improved and so was my TV picture.

Thanks for the feedback on the new Onk; wow, sound was improved significantly over the 805?

Yes! I added 2 onkyo Atmos up firing speakers. Everything else stayed the same. Just more punch in the bass and more enveloping sound. The picture on my JS8500 looks so much better on the Dish network!

Wow; sounds good! I want to add those Onkyo Atmos speaker modules at some point, as well, when I eventually get an Atmos/DTS:X-compatible AVR.

Any pics of your setup?

I got my 805 in April of 08 and it's still working great. I used it to power my speakers early on but moved to dedicated amps shortly after. I've reported this fact before. The killer of the 805 is Audyssey. Once it's used it adds huge amounts of heat that cooks the internals. I'm not a fan of using it in my complicated system with 6 large subs and 2 midbass modules. I use a manual calibration with cooling fans on the receiver just to keep my 805 as cool as possible. It barely has any heat coming from it the way I use it as a pre amp with fan cooling without auto calibration activated. I once did an Audyssey calibration and it got hot enough to fry an egg.

I believe that it was the HDMI board (video chip) that was the main cause of heat.
Audyssey has an automatic system of compensation when boosting some audio frequencies; by reducing the overall maximum master volume level.

Yes, it was the HDMI board (top right corner), that generated the most amount of heat in the Onkyo TX-SR805 AV receiver.

It's the Audyssey processor that causes the heat cooking the HDMI board and other parts. Disable Audyssey by doing a factory reset and see for yourself how much the heat drops. Simply turning off Audyssey does nothing. It still runs once you use the calibration Mike until you do a factory reset. Many people don't know about this.

Got mine from "OneCall" mid-July 2007... never looked back (well, there was a period of regret that I hadn't purchased the 905, but that was fleeting )

Are you talking' to me?
