Made the switch last night but there are some THINGS about the Onkyo 5010. A night of terror.
Almost too big and heavy. I think I hurt my back. I did know that going from having had the 5008.
PC and phone can’t find it to play music like the Denon could. Could just go to the music app and select the Denon and hit play. It was kinda cool and thought the 5010 would do this too. Is this not part of the DLNA cert???
Setup menus are only on the main TV, in my case that is the other room. Other info menus are on both displays. ???
The Zone control toggle on the remote only toggles between Zone 2&3. You can’t just hit it a 3rd time to go back to the receiver. I know I’m old and slow but it took me like 15 minutes to figure this out. I even looked in the manual and it has a section for using the Zone button but it don’t tell you that you must hit the receiver button 6 rows down to get out of Zone control. Why not just hit the toggle a 3rd time? Red, green then clear.
The HTML page is all but useless. There are no settings or a firmware update option, just some internet radio settings and the network settings, which you can’t get to if they are not setup right. ??? Am I missing a button somewhere? The Denon HTML interface is slow but you can look at all the settings and rename inputs and so on. Onkyo really dropped the ball here.
Onkyo also has a remote control app for the phone but that is all it is. Some very basic controls. You can rename the inputs BUT IT JUST LOCAL TO THE APP.
So when you do rename the inputs you are forced to select a letter a time with the remote and when done the setup menus still use the default names. So if you go back in later to change something involving an input you can’t find the one you are used to seeing.
I know this is just stuff you’ll just mess with (most likely) once but I just don’t get why they half-assed it. I forget now but I think the Denon can even save configurations from the HTML page.
Is there a setting I’m missing to enable these things?
