Only way around this i have found is to change to another listning mode and back again. But it repeats after 30-60min again.

This is the first I have heard of it. As the unit gets into more hands, we'll get more data and be able to see if it is a bug or an isolated problem.

do you have this in the other modes-thx, ultra cinema etc?

is the firmware the 9/17 release?

Perhaps I am misinterpreting your use of the word "compares", but Audyssey Pro enabled devices always inherit the resolution of the version of Audyssey on the installer-ready device. This has nothing to do with whether or not MultEQ Pro is used or not.

Therefore you really can't directly compare MultEQ XT32 to MultEQ Pro. MultEQ Pro enhances the capabilities of the version of MultEQ residing on the device, including MultEQ XT32.

MultEQ Pro adds the following capabilities to the version running on the device:
  • a more accurate microphone
  • it permits taking up to 32 measurements
  • it permits editing the target curves
  • it uses a more sophisticated method to recommend crossover settings
  • it provides frequency response graphs
  • it permits saving and reloading measurement files

Thanks for this -it helps.
So I am still curious how a no pro kit xt 32 (with sub eq) 80.2 compares with a pro kit install from an xt from an earlier version (9.9 9.9, 876 etc)

I'm not sure that that is knowable.

I do not think there will ever be an answer to this. First, any A/B comparison of correction measurements will be specific to the system context including the particular room acoustics. Second, any A/B comparison of correction audibility will also be confused by the many other differences between the earlier machines and the new ones. Still, it is an interesting question.

I'm sorry to hear that there might be a bug with the PLIIx and we thank you for sharing that with us but do you have anything positive to report????

Hi Joel,

Are you sure the 885 even has a fan? I wasn't aware that any of this family of preamplifiers had any internal fans. I thought that they simply relied on internal heat sinks and natural convection with vents under the units pulling in cool outside air, and hot air exhausting via the vents on the top.

There is a temperature sensor that does not work. There is one in my 805 that does. I assumed the sensors were there to turn on and off a fan. At any rate it gets very warm in back and I placed a small fan over the rear grill which seems to have addressed the problem. Perhaps the senors are there to turn off the set if it gets too hot. At any rate the 885 is working fine and I will put it in another room after I get the 80.2. I put a temperature sensor on the top of both of my 885 and my new 80.2, The 885 came in at 101. The new Integra dhc-802 was 106 with the 1.04 firmware. I am now using an Antec cooler for the Integra which seems to handle the load quite well. It will be key to NEVER put another component on top of the DHC-80.2

More problems!
Today my front panel is showing weird symbols

Like "All Channel Stereo" is "All Channel $tereo"
after the input like Game, DVD, Sat, its a extra letter "Game G"
Turning volume up down becomes 334,98 or 4489,89 really strange, going to call tomorow for a replacement ASAP!

Will post a picture

No pics necessary. Try a cold reboot.

Are you using a surge suppressor?

Straight to the wall socket, i will try a cold reboot. Its getting really hot back on the perforated metal.
I dont want to reset, XT32 setup will be gone
post #193 of 3823
bummer...keep us posted and good luck.
post #194 of 3823
Just of the phone with tech service, it could be:

1. A HDMI handshake error- Tested fail
2. Reset - Tested fail
3. Language in firmware stuck on 2 language - Cant confirm
4. Make power less for 1h - In progress
5. Return the unit tomorow to get a new one

Well, my theory is that a surge of some sort scrambled the 0's and 1's. The display corruption might only be one of the issues. If I am right about the surge, your calibration could have been affected as well.

If not a surge, perhaps the heat is the cause. I have heard of that, too.

Have unhooked everything and no power, dident help
Have to return the unit tomorrow, i hope this is a isolated case.
I will report back after i have been to the service place.

Could be a heat and or overload issue. try a small silent fan over the perforations in the back and see if that helps.

That's too bad. I hope they get you a replacement quickly.

I did have a scrambled display on my 9.9 once, and it was fixed by a reset. But it sounds like you have more problems than that.
post #201 of 3823
I don't think meller127 tried a hard reset. Just removing power for a while and re-powering it up. That's nowhere near the same, but maybe that is all he/she is comfortable with doing?

Hard reset?
I have cleared to factory default, and no power for 1h. Is there more ways?

Yes, I don't know it for your unit - but I'm sure someone else here does - but it usually involves pressing the power button while pressing another button or two. You might need to stand on your head, too.

For a hard reset you just pull the power cord, wait 10s and reinsert...

Are you sure? That seems too simple and very different than previous models.

From a SC885 and DTC-9.8 page (on another forum):

To reset the SSP:

To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter Standby mode. Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your radio presets and custom settings.

Would this be in the manual? Perhaps someone who has one can confirm.

Joel
post #207 of 3823
I agree tha the hard reset is more than just unplugging it. It is different on my Denon AVP than just unplugging from the wall.

So the system resets if you lose power for 10s? That doesn't seem right...
post #210 of 3823
To reset you press and hold VCR/DVD+Standby the unit must be ON not in standby.
