Firmware/Update Requests For Onkyo/Integra-Please Read - Page 8

post #211 of 5559
Did the 1.07 update yesterday with a Keyspan adapter. Everything went well except for after it was done, all of my settings were cleared. I was expecting that after the DSP update but not the main update.

Burned an audio CD using Nero and tried it on my Sammy 981 but didn't work. Used Quack's settings for the PS3 and it worked like a charm. After 10 minutes I turned it off and now the audio locks immediately which is fantastic. Gonna run Audyssey again tonight to redo the settings.

Thanks everyone for the help.

Beware ! The "DSP" Update will clear all Your settings though.

Gurkey - I appreciate the help. I think I'll wait for the 1.08 update for the 885 as I think jeorod might have said that was a significant upgrade. I'm looking forward to the upgrade but am willing to wait for it to be approved by the experts here. Hopefully the 885 will have the new firmware update soon.

Quak - thanks for the info.

Anyone here update their 885 to 1.08?

This is the update for the 885 joerod talked about.

... and it's latest (and current) firmware release is not 1.08 but 1.07, he talked about, because the 885 follows the 875 update path, which is different and individual for this model family (875/9.8/885).
Only 905 and 8.8 have a 1.08 version.

Both are current and equivalent in terms of improved functionality and bug fixes.
Just ask joerod

Look here

Great! For some reason I thought I read someone said it was 1.08 was the one to wait for but if Joerod says that 1.07 is the "big" upgrade than I'll get on this right away!

Sorry for being a nimrod but I want to make sure I have this right - the link at the top is any DSP or multiple DSP upgrades I want and then the 1.07 is the firmware upgrade I want? Are there any other patches I should keep an eye out for? (i'm currently on 1.05 on my 885).

Thanks again!

The DSP update is for all stated models and probalby only changes DSP1 if You are on 1.05 already.
Warning: The update routine for the DSPs will erradicate all Your setting including "Audyssey" and have to be redone.
It needs a CD player using Opt1 (toslink) for input.

The "Main" update is done through the RS232 port at the back.
The cable is of type "straight", not crossed.
Read the instructions first to become familiar with the update procedures.
There are no units bricked as far as the feedback in these threads tell.
The update routines are safe.

I did the 1.05 upgrade to my 9.8 2 months ago with no problems.
Now when I try to find the firmware version by pressing and holding display and then pressing standby/on the unit turns on normally but I get no firmware display version.Any ideas?

I am kind of puzzled with my results on the DSP update on an early purchased (11/07) 705. Wondering if anyone else got the same results as I did. Here is what I have:

Main firmware is 1.02/07712B.

Used the following file: CD_SR805 123_08214A_07518A_07820B.wav (file play time is 1.04 seconds, and is 11.069 KB) provided by Joerod. I burned it as an audio disc with Roxio at the slowest write speed of 8X.

The process only performed a "write" twice. It would not complete the third write on multiple attemps. I'm using a Sony DVP-NS725P optical out to 1. The 705 would not exit to "Clear" after the second write. I waited 15 minutes and did a manual push on standby which indicated clear.

Results:
DSP S8051: 08214A (updated)
DSP S8052: 07518A (original setting)
DSP S8053: 07518A (original setting)

Reason for using the older Sony DVP is because I am waiting for the BD30 price drop.

I guess as long as the first DSP was updated, that seemed to be the key based on what I have read from other's experiences.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Just updated main firmware of onkyo 875 from 1.04 to 1.07. The problem that I seem to have now is that upon startup for 3 seconds the display reads, E2 EPROM ERROR

Any suggestions, hope I did not just brick my unit...
post #220 of 5559
Just did a manual reset and now upon startup my E2 EPROM ERROR is gone, suggestions...

so now you go into your menu and set up your Input/Output assignments, set up Audyssey and everything else you did with your 875 before. It should be fine. The EPROM message has occurred to others and after a re-set, away you go as if you have a brand new receiver (i.e. nothing is set up).

Thanks again, Bill

There shouldn't be a problem at all.
post #223 of 5559
Thanks Jvi, I was thinking I might have done something wrong with the software while unzipping the files prior to the update.

Another question to all of those that have done the update, while the update was running, was the counter counting up to 24468, is this what everyone else had.

Thanks...

Bodie,

Thanks. I thought it would be OK but I am very computer challenged. I am lucky I can find my way here!

I got the same thing with my Toshiba HD-A3. It only played for 1 minute 3 seconds. I got out an old Panasonic DVD player and it ID'd the disk as having 1 minute 6 seconds. This time it worked.

Having problems updating "Main". I am using the Keyspan Adapter set to COM 1, but when I click on the "Main Update" button it does nothing. Please help!

Thanks!
post #228 of 5559
Check to see which COM port is assigned to the KeySpan adapter. Most likely is is assigned to a port other than COM1, COM2 or COM3, which are the only ports available for the main firmware updater. Change the KeySpan port to, say, COM3, make sure that is selected in updater, and it should go.

I have the KeySpan set to COM 1 ( I can see it in Device Manager ) and the Updater is also set to COM 1, but will not start to load. Using Vista.

Joerod

Thanks for sending the 875 update file which I could not get from the rapidshare site!

Much appreciated

Is there a delay before it starts to load or this it begin as soon as you hit the "Main Update" button? Mine does nothing. Current version is 1.07 What am I doing wrong?

In step 3 I doubled clicked on the setup.exe file and followed the instructions. But I did not move any NR905 file as it looks like it is already there.

Joerod,

I sent you a PM about getting the firmware updates emailed to me. Did you get a chance to send it out yet?

Thanks!

I am sure I did because now my box is empty. If you do not have it yet send me another PM.

Are you connecting the Keyspan directly to the 905? Does not seem to stay very firmly. If anyone has any ideas, please share.

Tape it. I used black electrical tape to hold it into place... Works fine...

Yes, having an empty box is very rare for me.

Took about 2 hours to get it there...

Are you sure your Keyspan is set to COM1 ?
Try going to the My Computer Icon on your desktop, right-click on it and go to Properties. Once there click on the Harware tab and then the Device Manager button. In there you should see Ports (COM and LPT). From there you should be able to open it up by clicking the + sign , double click the Keyspan device in the list, click the Port Settings tab, Click the Advanced button, see the COM port setting for the Keyspan and change them if you wish. If the one you want to use is in use, unplug that device, turn off your computer, plug in the Keyspan into that port, turn on the computer, go back to the My Computer icon and do the above steps again.

Make sure it is COM1, 2 or 3 (these are the only ones usable in the updater program from Onkyo).
You could also just try COM2 or COM3 on the updater program.

Now, after all of this, send Mr. Bill Gates a gift. I suggest a lump of coal.
