I would like to know how to adjust adequate frequency for each of these speakers that I mentioned above(front, central, surround and subwoofer) in the Onkyo receiver TX-SR 875?
All suggestions are welcome. Thank You.
And another question, how in onkyo TX-SR 875 change impedance from 4, 6 ohms to 8 ohms as all JBL speakers works at 8 ohms?
I currently have option in onkyo 875 to change the 4 and 6 ohms.Does not offer me the option to switch to 8 ohms.
Sorry for my bad English.
Thank You in advance
Screen is attached via HDMI only.
I'm using almost only HDMI inputs (all 4 taken), and 1 component input (WII). I've not used the WII in years, but it used to work just fine - not so anymore.
All the component and composite inputs seem to have gone bad somehow.
The input is seemingly lacking the needed synchronisation and the image is shaking sideways all over.
I've tried hooking up the WII to all 3 component inputs and to the composite input of AUX2 as well, all the same result.
I've also tried all 3 output modes of the WII, no joy.
If I hook up the WII directly to the TV I get a perfectly good image (but no sound, my screen has no speakers at all).
So it's not cables nor the WII itself.
I might over the years have changed some setting that is causing this - but I've tried canging many of them and nothig seems to help at all (passthrough or upscaling all seems to make no difference at all).
Any settings I need to double check or any easy repair options for the Onkyo ?
I'm located in Europe should that matter (and the Onkyo is a EU model).
can some one please provide me a link or an copy from the "xx5_Onkyo_UpdatesISO.zip" file? As far as I understand, it's handy for fixing the EEPROM error. I tried google and searched this board, but didn't get a working copy.
*edit: I would like to fix the EEPROM Error according to this post: The Onkyo/Integra direct firmware updates. My Problem is, I just can't find any of the needed files. The receiver is a few years old now and forgets it's settings every time the power goes down. It's actual Firmwares are: MAIN: 1.07 and HDMI 1.01
Can anyone tell me, which are the newest firmwares and where to get them and perhaps the old 1.05 main fw?
Thank you very much in advance!
They are all good starting points and solve most problems. I do not know what the 1.09 is suppose to fix over the 1.08.
Because I have a last gen Panasonic plasma (no 4k) and a 7.1 home theater, I am thinking that an integra 80.2 or onk 5508 will better feature match my components than my 875, but I do not have the resources to get a pre/pro AND a new 7ch amplifier at this time. I got my 875 new in 2007 and particularly since getting some active cooling for it, it has been a titan.
It occurred to me that the 875 might act as a perfectly adequate (and THX Ultra 2 certified) amplifier for the time being.
Does anyone have experience with this? Obviously I want the 7 analog channels coming out of a nice pre/pro to bypass all signal processing in the 875, and I have heard that is possible except for volume control. How would one go about eliminating all signal processing from that source (I am assuming there is a specific sound mode for this, maybe a menu setting?), and if the volume cannot be eliminated, what volume should I set on the unit to interfere as little as possible? Is it plausible to expect a setup that works as well or better than the 875 has worked by itself?
I would really appreciate hearing about people's experiences.
My TX SR875 was in storage for 4 years and today upon hooking it up noticed there was no output from the Center or Surround L/R channel. I cannot get a test tone either. Tried a reset to no avail. Speakers work fine so that not the issue. Front L/R and Surround Back L/R work fine so it is the other two channels were I am having issues. Any ideas what it could be as I went through the speaker setup and settings are all correct?
Surprise, especially me... It is now working.
I ran it last night and got it fairly warm but still had the issues.
This morning I checked for obvious signs and checked the fuses by pulling them out and placing them back as well as testing transistors and looking for blown caps and a smell test but nothing came up. Hit the power button and surprise all speakers worked perfect.
The only solution I came up with was either the heat from the previous night of running made it work (though I doubt this as it was unplugged all night and it ran perfect while dead cold) or the fuses I pulled to test for the channels might have had oxidation between the clips and by moving it to test the connection was re-established (this is what I think was the accidental fix).
Oh well, no longer looking for a new receiver so happy I am.
Cables and speakers are checked and confirmed not the cause.
Anybody encountered this before and what is the possible cause?
I have re-uploaded the xx5 recievers firmware update ISO: http://www.share-online.biz/dl/FCBBVXPM39

Onkyo have told me, in numerous emails, that the 875 will pass through both video and audio in standby, in other words, I don't have to have the amp turned on all the time just to watch the news from my SkyHD box etc. But no matter how many times and what permutations of settings I try, nothing works, as soon as I turn off the 875 the picture/sound is gone.
Any ideas, please?
ALSO can anyone confirm if it can handle 4 Ohm Speakers without any issues like the Axiom M100s.
I am running Ascend Towers With RAAL FR/FL and Sierra1's as RR/RL with and old Aperion Center and a JL F113 Subwoofer.
I feel like I am not getting the most from these speakers compared to everyone else on the Ascend Forum.
As for 4 ohm speakers, try and search the thread, or skim the first few hundred posts, you should be able to find something about that. It's a fairly common subject any time a new receiver shows up. Investing in a good 2-channel amp would probably be a good idea for those speakers though.
It's one of the main reasons I replaced mine with a Denon years ago. My 875 is just sitting in the box collecting dust.
edit: searching for the E2PROM error will bring up results like this thread: Onkyo E2PROM Error Thread

I have a 7 year old TX SR 875 which had the HDMI card replaced at great expense about 15 months ago.
When I got it back I set up all the original inputs (Cable TV, Blu Ray player etc) but did not configure the AM/FM Tuner. Yesterday when I tried to configure it, I couldn't. The display shows the Frequencies changing as I step around the local stations, but I could not tune to and receive any stations (AM or FM). While all this was going on, I was receiving what sounded like a community station playing dance music, but that came through on FM no matter what I did. If I unplugged the external antenna, I got nothing at all.
The unit was reset to factory settings, and Firmware was updated (or so I was told).
Any suggestions, please? Is the tuner a separate plug in unit? Could it perhaps have been dislodged during the HDMI card replacement?
PS: I have found that the station it can receive is 99.1 FM. No matter what the tuner display says, this is the only signal I can receive. Strange thing is that even if I scan the Onk past 99.1 it still won't recognise the station.

The left rear surround channel on my amp has stopped working for no apparent reason. Definitely the channel as I have checked speaker, cables etc. Any ideas appreciated........
