Really need some help!!

I bought a DTR-50.2, but I cannot ifnd the serial number sticker anywhere on the receiver. It is supposed to be a white label with 10 digit number. But I have searched, and searched the back and there is absolutely no label... None.

I called up Integra support and they say it must have one.

IS there any way I can look it up in the firmware? Is there a hidden service menu that lists the serial number....

This is driving me nuts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for any help.....

This is the only forum that came on my search about hidden menu settings, and since Onkyo=Integra, I posted here. If there is an official DTR-50.2 thread, I would gladly post there......

Thanks !

Okay so I read the entire Owners FAQ (1st post), but am still very confused about what listening mode I should use with a 5.1 speaker setup. The FAQ said that I should just leave it on Multichannel Audio, yet I don't have that listening mode. The only thing I seem to have is mono, stereo, Direct, and Dolby D, so I am using Dolby D for now. This may be because I don't have my rear channel speakers hooked up yet, so I basically have 3.1 speaker setup right now. I disabled all the surround speakers in the speaker setup menu. When I do get my rear speakers what is the best listening mode for both movies and cable? My cable box has an option to output audio is surround sound. It doesn't specify what format of surround sound it uses it just gives you two options stereo or surround it is hooked up using HDMI. The cable box is for AT&T Uverse.

All above using audessey, fronts set to large, double bass on and center and surrounds set to 60hz. Music is 2ch stereo, audessey off. Hope this helps, if not let me know

Just watched the Cosmos last night on Fox, it is one of the few shows that seem to be broad cast in full 5.1 channel Dolby Digital. It sounded completely amazing. I think I will be using that mode whenever it is available, and I will just keep playing around with PLII, THX5.1, and Neo 6, till I decide which upmixes stereo the best.

 

Have a new problem now. I am having troulbe getting the system loud enough. Even at max volume the system is only a moderate volume, few would consider it loud. It is quite annoying. I had run the Audyssey set-up and I guess I had my subwoofer turned down to low during the setup cause it had set it at 0db and everything else at -7 to -4. Well it appears that having the sub set higher than the other channel wouldn't allow the other channels to reach max volume cause the sub would reach max volume first and in order to preserve the differences in volume between the channels the receiver wouldn't allow the other channels to increase in volume any further. So I fixed this by lowering the sub to the same volume as the other in the setup and then cranking the gain on the back of the sub. But this only have me another 5db and while it was a noticeably improvement I still wouldn't call it loud. I was finally able to get the system to play loudly by turning up the intellivolume setting to +12. This allows me to reach the level of loudness that I desire while still being around 20db from the receiver's maximum volume setting. Are there any drawbacks to using intellivolume? Are there any other settings I should be looking at to squeeze volume out of the system?
