Firmware updates don't require a dongle or jig if the main firmware (Main Update?) is at 1.01. most were at 1.00 which necessitated one or the other. DSP can be done regardless of firmware version.

Just wanted to say huge thanks to @cambrian . Followed your method to the letter and results just as promised. LED is alive again.
Yes, I know my soldering is a bit messy, but my excuses are lack of proper iron tip and it was done in rush

Independence Day 2 - Resurgence: Audio drop-outs?

During my first playback of ripped ID2 (DTS-MA) through my TX-SR805, I experienced numerous audio drop-outs. Audio would be lost for 1-5 seconds, during which front panel indicators for audio properties (format and channels) would disappear. No audible artifacts before or after the drop-outs. I later tested a different DTS-MA title (Jurassic World) and it played without flaws. Rip was Handbrake with audio pass-thu + AnyDVD. Playback was PCH VTEN.
Any other TX users experience similar?

PS. I updated firmware last year for "DTS bomb".

I still can't believe I have had my Onkyo 805 after all these years. Recently, I have heard some clicking noises from it and I know there is a common HDMI board issue.....If my unit ever goes out, what do you think of a Marantz 7010 as a replacement? I currently have a complete set of Klipsch Reference speaker, RF 82, RC 62, and 4 RS 52 and a Synergy Sub 12 subwoofer. I have heard Klipsch and Marantz made a good pair.

I was airing out my 805 today. Still sounds as good as the day I bought it. But, my wife was asking about something newer with BT and other up-to-date features. Told her I would have to look at a worthy replacement. I'm also curious what others would recommend whether it be another Onkyo, or another brand. I have a Klipsch Testing Engineer in the family (that's been worth a few good deals) who has told me more than once that he prefers Onkyo or Marantz if you're going the A/V receiver route to drive Klipsch speakers.
I currently have KLF-30s with a KLF-C7 center, and RS62 surrounds.
The 805 has been flawless for music, but is behind the times for video processing. Curious what receivers to look at for the future.

I bought this almost exactly one year ago for Bluetooth. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016NUTG5K/


I use it every day to rock out to my cellphone library while showering after work.

Do crossovers apply to pre-outs as well?

Hello all! I am considering an 805 I saw on sale for $100 as my first receiver, likely powering a set of Athena F2 or some kind of Cerwin Vega mains (Im a big basshead...). Paired with a sub, of course.

My question is whether the pre-out outputs are subject to crossover settings on the 805. I am debating investing in a separate power amp, and I would like to be able to specify crossovers for various speaker setups as I add them to the setup. I understand that I can set a low pass to route all bass frequencies to the subwoofer, which by default will send all the rest of the frequencies to the mains, but if I were to add smaller speakers down the line, by connecting them to the other pre-outs, I may want to specify different crossover ranges for those. Does the 805 allow for such settings?

Yes it does. It's part of how the bass management works for each channel. It doesn't matter if you use the 805 internal amps or use dedicated amplifiers. The crossover selections can be set different for each channel in zone 1.

It can't. ARC was introduced with HDMI 1.4, the TX-SR805 uses HDMI 1.3.

What is ARC exactly, does it improve the audio quality or something?
