You kind of have to wonder about the testing of these features. Did they only test in specific modes that don't cause the relay clicking (in which case, what are those modes), or did they not think that the frequent switching was annoying enough to address.

Fortunately I do use a squeezebox because that interface is so much more powerful than a simple directory tree. Speaking of which, I wonder if Logitech has considered licensing out the interface to the sqeezecenter software. Squeezecenter aware receivers would be nice.

I'm re-doing my theater in my townhouse to include a pj and 100" screen. The center channel will be below the screen. The right and left fronts will be mounted in wall (Def Tech's), at the right/left edges of the screen. Left and Right surrounds will be ceiling mounted the same width as the front left/rights, and above the listening couch (can't go any futher back).

I'm getting the Onkyo TX-NR3007 and can add another two speakers-- could either be a pair on the main wall (or ceiling) above the left/rights as "heights", or a pair in the ceiling further back towards the listening couch, splitting the distance between the main wall and the rear surrounds. I can't put speakers on the side walls for various reasons (sliding door, room config, etc).

Any suggestions as to front wall height speakers or ceiling mounted, mid way back to the surrounds???

Thanks,
Scott

Please mail this problem to Onkyo in your country, i did this for Onkyo Europe.
I hope that all users will do this as this is the only way to get Onkyo to act on this problem, as i understood, they are not active on any forums so this is the only way to shake them up.

Thanks, and lets hope Onkyo will solve this..........

The X007 serie is making clicking sounds between tracks on a USB stick and over NET.
THIS MUST BE SOLVED BY ONKYO..........

So please mail this problem to Onkyo in your country, i did this for Onkyo Europe.
Hope that all x007 users will do this as this is the only way to get Onkyo to act on this problem, as i understood, they are not active on any forums so this is the only way to shake them up.

just got my open box tx-nr5007 from NE yesterday. The unit is in excellent condition physically, but it didn't make any sound. Everything else seem to work, I can see the setup menu on my TV, just no sound as if I didn't connect my speaker wires. So it looks like someone got a DOA unit and NE just resold it as 'open box' without even checking if it works or not. If someone returned it as DOA unit, shouldn't they just RMA it with onkyo instead of try to sell it as open box? Anyway, luckily, I updated the firmware via USB port and the unit came back to life. I haven't verified everything yet, but looks like everything is working except the tuner. I can change the FM freq., but it doesn't make any hissing sound in between channels. I have no reception in the basement, so I can't verify if newer receivers are supposed to be silent like that to avoid the annoying hissing white noise in between channels? I can deal with no tuner, since I don't listen to the radio from this system anyway.

P.S. If you are OCD, I don't recommend buying open box specials from NE.

Did you get a replacement unit from onkyo or this is the same one you have some problems with? My 5007 has the same problem that once it is in stanby mode for a period of time, if I turn it back on, I'd get no sound. I have to turn it off and on again to get sound. Anyone else having this problem? what is the fix?

AFAIK , william06 is using the same unit he had from the beginning.

Hello:
sorry for the long delay in answering your post. Yes this is my original unit. After doing a lot of research and talking to our local regional repair center in NJ. I reset my cable box a couple of weeks ago re set my wiring (HDMI) connector and unplugged the cable box for about 1/2 hour. Since then I have had no issues. I had the same issue and it got worse after it got stuck on the first update. I did a hard reset that time and redid the update again over the net. Went fine. Did the second update last week and went very well as stated above. really have started to enjoy this receiver and all it has to offer. Just the other day I purchased a Used Aukdioquest HDMI=3 wire for insertion between the cable box and receiver just for extra security. It has a tighter fit and figured I would try it out. If you read various threads and other sources you will find a lot of Handshake issues are out there between various components. Especially cable boxes . Some times even the order in which you turn on and off different components and the sequence in how you do it can make a difference. I know is sounds nuts but it is working for me. Hope I am not putting a HEx on it.

Is this a common issue other people are seeing?

I am very interesting in the 3007 but any audio/video lag would be a deal breaker.

When playing first person shooters, you need to see and hear what is happening in real-time, not with a delay. If the buttons you are pressing don't give an immediate result on-screen and through your speakers, it would feel very odd and also hurt performance.

I was hoping this was an isolated incident and not something common.

Any ideas if others are noticing this issue with interactive audio inputs where a delay could be noticed?

djradon never replied if he tried the suggestions and I personally don't play games so I don't know.
But I would think the dedicated GAME inputs and settings would be there for a reason but I could be mistaken...

Connecting a Game Console
Step 1: Video Connection
Choose a video connection that matches your game console (A ,B , or C), and then make the connection.
You must connect the AV receiver to your TV with the same type of connection.
Step 2: Audio Connection
Choose an audio connection that matches your game console ( a or b ), and then make the connection.
With connection a, you can listen to and record audio from your game console or listen in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
To enjoy Dolby Digital and DTS, use connection b. (To record or listen in Zone 2 or Zone 3 as well, use a and b.)
Code:
 
Connection   AV receiver                  Signal flow   Game console
A            COMPONENT VIDEO IN 3 (GAME)  ⇐               Component video output
B            GAME IN S                    ⇐               S-Video output
C            GAME IN V                    ⇐               Composite video output
a            GAME IN L/R                  ⇐               Analog audio L/R output
b            DIGITAL OPTICAL IN 1 (GAME)  ⇐               Digital optical output
Picture Adjust-> Game Mode
Off: Game Mode off (default).
On: Game Mode on.
If video signal delay occurs during playback on a video component (i.e. game console), select the corresponding input source and set the Game Mode setting to On. The delay will decrease but in return the picture quality will become poor.

Video Attenuation
This setting can be made for the DVD/BD, VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT, GAME, AUX1, or COMPONENT VIDEO input. (You need to assign the input source for COMPONENT VIDEO input.)
If you have a games console connected to the S-Video, composite and component video input, and the picture isn't very clear, you can attenuate the gain.
Video ATT:OFF: (default).
Video ATT:ON: Gain is reduced by 2 dB.

And it would be a great option if the Onkyo puts the last used Internet Radio Station in a memory so when you start the NET part and select Radio it will go to the last used station.........

Also keepig track of the last USB song used (after standby is used all sets to the begin menu) would be a wanted option, at least in my case

Hmmm
Well I'd be playing from an Xbox 360 over HDMI.

I would prefer that the receiver just pass the video signal through without any processing, so the signal being "poor" in this case should not be a bad thing based on what I want, correct?

Trying to understand the inputs mentioned, but I don't see HDMI as one of the inputs mentioned.

Yes, the "poor" comment is probably only be relevant if you let the Onkyo do any video processing. Having the Resolution set to Through and turning off any video adjustments incl OSD Immediate Display and turning on the GAME mode would be the way to go.
HDMI is not listed above, not sure why.
This comment is probably also important in order to avoid any unnecessary processing: You must connect the AV receiver to your TV with the same type of connection.

thanks for the timely reply. I think my issue might be diff, since I am not even using HDMI cable yet, I am just using optical out from my Sony PS3 slim.
I do notice that everytime that I get no sound, the receiver would make one less relay clicking sound, and none of the speaker/channel indicators on the display would light up. It is like a relay is not getting energized so it stays open/close, once I turn it off and on again, the receiver will make one extra relay click(2-3 seconds after the initial 4-6 clicks), then all the speaker/channel indicators would lite up and I would get sound. Maybe one of the mechanical relay is bad? how did you get in touch with Bob Elder? is he/the service center out of NJ or CA?

my tuner problem that I mentioned early is not a problem anyway, I just have to press the tuning mode button behind the front door to select manual tuning instead of auto, when it is auto, its dead silent, when it is in manual tuning, I have the white noise. Is it supposed to work like that?

Even though you do not use HDMI It is interesting that the issue I have had was exactly the same as you do. When I put the unit in standby After a while when I turned it on no audio, The same issues with the relay the third click did not happen. But since i did the above resets all works well including the third click. Very strange. do you have a cable box or sat box. Just for a lark try to reset them and unplug them for a while and check the optical cables and make sure they are very tight. Also have you spoken to Onkyo. When i talked to them they acted as if I was the only one with issues. The web sight never answered or reacted. I did most of the research on my own and talked to the regional service center. So far all issues stopped.

I have not try it with a cable box or anything else, and I don't think it matters, since this problem exist with the built-in tuner. Did you call the 1-800-229-1687 number on ONKYO website to get the regional service center? I've just entered my problem via the contact onkyo support on Onkyo website, but most likely I won't hear back from anyone, so I will give that 800 a number sometimes today. I just wish I can get a hold of this Bob Elder person, so I am not wasting my time with someone that has no knowledge of this problem. I tried to update the firmware again via the USB prot, but it won't update, because I have the latest one already. I thought I read that you did the update a few times to fix this problem? maybe I need to do it via the net to fool the receiver it's a different firmware.

I created a video and uploaded it to youtube to document this problem and so others can see. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN7MU7UI-NA


update:

just talked with theEastern Regional Service Center
United Radio Service
5717 Enterprise Parkway
East Syracuse, NY 13057
1-800-634-8606 (Tel)

they just basically want me to ship the unit in for repair, I can also drop it off and they will ship it back to me, but they are almost 200miles away. The closest local authorized repair center is 50miles away, maybe I will just drop it off there. This sucks...

this guy from AVFORUMS has the same problem:

This is why I persevered; I have an eloborate set up and felt I should not have to disconnect a brand new receiver send or take it in be without for several weeks with the risk of them telling me nothing is wrong. So that is why I did the research and tried everything first. I do believe if it was resistors or anything solid state it either works or it does not. So far it seems to be handshake or similar issues and have not had issues for a couple of weeks. I was just past my return date and asked onkyo for a new unit if I were to send mine to them they refused. I never got a response from the web site only from phone calls. The tech guys were decent the head CSR was very arrogant and not at all helpful. So theyre rep for poor custojmer service is justified. But when this works it is a great product.

AS far as me redoing the update the history for me was during the first update the update froze. I called onkyo they told me to wait and if it did not complete power off unplug do hard reste and redo the firmware. I did and it completed successfully. Than a week or to later last friday I did the new update over the internet once and it was fine. So I never did one compolete twice only once complete each.
I would suggest you try everything you can first before sending in.

by the way I am the bobaudio on that site.

I watched your utube video. I always get sound on the third click even when I had the issue. I have not or do not use the radio,

Hmmm... so there are some good deals right now on the 3007 and this sound lag just scares me.

I'm having a hard time understanding what Immediate Display is or what type of OSD this unit has.

Can anyone explain? My receiver is in another room, so I would really like to be able to see what sound mode I'm on and what the volume is etc on the TV display itself.

Is this how it works?

Thanks!

With OSD Immediate Display on, it shows volume control and listening mode
changes etc on the screen when you change something.
Turning it off could mean less processing done by the receiver.

The Onkyo 876 had an option (on the remote) called "CH SEL" and with this option you could turn up or down the dB level for each speaker WITHOUT the pink noise sound !
After you corrected the level you can leave it like this and when you turn the 876 to Standby it would go back to the original level when you turn the receiver on again.
After using CH SEL and then pressing "SP CAL" fast, (i think it was called this on the remote, speaker callibration, but not 100% sure....) it would store your new dB level without the pink noice.

So will the 3007 have also an option to put the dB level up or down without the pink noise stuff ?

Thanks....

Pressing the Audio button on the remote and arrow down a few times,
you can temporary adjust the level for the center and subwoofer(s).

The levels should have been correctly setup by Audyssey so I don't
personally have the need for any other permanent or temporary adjustments
but I guess you want to adjust it to your personal preference.

Yes, i found the Audio button and indeed center and woofer are adjustable.
I do find the 876 solution (all speakers adjustable) better, but the need to adjust only center and woofer are prefered by more users i think.
After Audyssey i find the speakers levels not to be to my liking so i adjust the dB levels until it sounds good to me.
Its not a big change i make, some speakers (i use 9.1 setup) i put down 1-2 dB, others like the front and high i boost a bit.
Now i have to use the pink noise option, not to good to get the levels right, but as the 876 option is not there any more i am stuck with it.
When i have the speakers correct the center and woofer in the Audio menu are a nice and fast option :-)

I do like to see some changes in the firm / software.

1) a memory for the last used Internet Radio Station.

2) a memory for the last use USB track.

3) a solution for the clicks between tracks on USB / Net use.

4) the option to move the favorites around in vTuner.
Example, i want station nr. 4 on spot nr. 1 and nr. 1 on 5 ect. ect.

High frequency roll-off with THX Re-EQ and/or Audyssey
Audyssey has two "curves": one is flat and the one is the Audyssey Reference curve which is not flat all the way.
The Audyssey Reference (target) curve target is flat in the bass with a slight roll-off in the high frequencies.
There are many reasons for this that came out of Audyssey's research.
They have to do with the fact that directivity of loudspeakers is very different at high frequencies than it is in the lower
frequencies. So the relative weighting among them has to be balanced and Audssey do that with a rolloff in the high
frequencies that starts at 4 kHz and goes down gently at 10 kHz and then slightly steeper after that to 20 kHz.
The only time Audyssey recommend using a Flat response is when the receiver is set to THX mode.
Then the THX Re-EQ is allowed to do its job properly as it was intended.
In short: The Onkyo receiver automatically selects the Audyssey Reference curve except when a THX mode
is selected, then the Audyssey Flat curve is automatically used.

Caveat: If you use the Audyssey Reference Curve and THX Re-EQ then you will have double the roll off in the high frequencies.
For Onkyo receivers: there is no way to manually select the Audyssey Flat curve except by using a THX listening mode.

Listening modes are either:
a) modes that use the Audyssey Flat Curve and THX Re-Eq can be 'On' or 'Off'.
b) modes that use the Audyssey Flat Curve and THX Re-Eq can not be applied.
c) modes that use the Audyssey Reference Curve and Re-Eq can be 'On' or 'Off'.
d) modes that use the Audyssey Reference Curve and Re-Eq can not be applied.

Basically, anything with 'THX' is either a) or b):
Anything with 'THX' combined with 'Cinema' or 'EX' fell into a).
Anything with 'THX' combined with 'Music' or 'Games' fell into b).

The listening modes were you can end up with double high frequency roll off from Audyssey Reference curve combined with 'Re-Eq: On', category c), are:
- DTS Neo 6
- Dolby Prologic IIx Movie
- Dolby Digital EX
- Dolby Digital
- Neural Surround (formely named Neural THX 5.1/7.1)

This picture shows my test readings with a SPL meter and a 16Khz Dolby Digital test tone.
The Stereo value was measured with an analog signal. I calculated the value relatively
to Dolby Prologic IIx Movie which I also enabled with the analog signal as well
as the 16khz signal.

Thanks for that info. I had just realized a couple days ago that I was getting a lot more high frequency roll of than I expected at times. I think this explains it.

Today I finally got around to hook up HD Radio Module UP-HT1 to the Universal Port, but HD radio did not work, when I push PORT button on the unit or on the remote I see "NotSupport" sign on OSD for a few seconds. I tried to push PLAY button to switch between FM or AM modes (according UP-HT1 instructions), no response. Did anyone on this thread was able successfully use HD Radio Module ? Thanks.

Defective UP-HT1. Replace it. See my response in the TX-NR5007 thread.

does anyone know if the x007 series would handle the following setup?

Main Zone
5.1 system
HDTV

Zone 2
2.1
HDTV

Zone 3
8 speakers
(scattered around house)

In the two zones that have TV's I want to be able to watch different channels at the same time?
Also, I would want to be able to play the same music in all zones at the same time?

I believe I need something like a pre-amp and/or volume controls for the Zone 3 setup?

I am new to all this so please bare with me. Thanks in adavance!!

Turn the AV receiver off and then back on again, wait a few minutes, and then try connecting again.
If it still doesn't work properly, try resetting the AV receiver.
(Message No.311)
I guess this would be only for changing the network settings, not picture and audio settings and such, am I correct?

Haven't tried resetting the receiver and see if that would help.

mot67,

Were you able to fix error message # 311 by resetting? I am also not willing to reset my receiver if there's an alternate work-around. Thanks!

Turning it off could mean less processing done by the receiver.

Immediate Display On: Displayed (default).
Off: Not displayed.
This preference determines whether operation details are displayed onscreen when an AV receiver function is
adjusted.
Even when On is selected, operation details may not be output if the input source is connected to an HDMI
IN.

In regards to the last part about the source material coming from HDMI... is this the case? Do these units not show the volume and listening mode if the source is HDMI? Is it restricted to certain resolutions?

Thanks!

No, I haven't tried resetting as this doesn't bother me that much to be worth it.
If I understand correct, the *Network Setting* page is for changing just that, the network settings, the ip address and such.
As all other network related functions are working correctly, there's no need for me to change them, and if there were, I can always change them via the OSD.
