Tried it yet? Any change?

Good point.

Hi Everyone -
Unit arrived today.



Didn't have much time tonight - a few notes:
When I started up the system I was unable to initiate network settings or do a firmware update - they were both grayed out in the user menu. This protocol worked:
1) Press Standby/Off
2) Pull the AC able out of the back of the receiver.
3) **Unplug the network(ethernet) cable from the back of the receiver.
4) Wait ~30 seconds or so.
5) Plug the AC cable back in and turn on the receiver.
6) Plug the ethernet cable back into the receiver.
7) Wait about 30 seconds to a minute and then go into setup.

As it happens, no firmware update was needed - unit shipped with the current firmware.

That sounds like DHCP hadn't assigned an IP address the first time.

Unfortunately my wife had other plans for me this weekend. It's killing me but my 80.2 is still sitting in the box as is the 20.1 I picked up for a little basement system I have.

I actually had a few people PM me basically implying that I didn't have an 80.2 (which I thought was a little odd). Perhaps the picture below will put that to rest!

"When I started up the system I was unable to initiate network settings or do a firmware update - they were both grayed out in the user menu."

They become avaible 50sec after ju hit the power button, some sort of delay dont know why.
post #221 of 3823
This problem did not resolve by waiting 50 seconds, as is stated in the manual. Only the restart protocol described above allowed me to have access to both the network settings and the firmware update options.

Any significance to the (B) designation?
B-stock? or Black? Is it available in silver?
Any links to a manual yet? Don't see it on the website.
post #223 of 3823
Nope its states in the manual only applies to color. Just back from the service with my unit, i picked up a new one i really hope this will work as intended now.
post #224 of 3823
Be sure to put the surge protector on the unit-and if you can, cool the back with a small silent fan. I would also do a hard reset before doing anything else just to be sure every thing is starting with defaults.

Good luck and let us know!

Does the DHC80.2 have audible fans? I hear a lot about cooling and nobody has really said how hot these things gets. My current equipment rack is an open front closed back rack about 3.5ft tall. I have a Proceed AVP, Proceed AMP5, Direct TV DVR, OPPO83, and a VCR in there and nothing is ever more than warm. The DirectTV box is warmest, and it is the only thing with a fan. Will I have to modify the rack to handle the 80.2?

My Onkyo 885 did not appear to have a fan and got fairly hot. Much warmer than my HR20-100. I used a USB driven silent fan from radio shack (usb power from a cheap usb 1.0 bridge) that has worked very well when placed over the rear section that was getting very warm.

I have no idea if this Onkyo/Integra generation of pre/pros is cooled by a fan but my approach should be compatible with your current system if you kept the Integra on top.
post #227 of 3823
I am going from the Denon AVP to the 80.2. I wasn't aware that any Pre-Pros run excessivly hot. My anthem never did, nor does my Denon. The POA amp runs REAL hot but not the processor.

Pre/pros do not typically run hot, but they do generate some heat and need to have some ventilation.

Picked up my 80.2 from Hanson AV in Dayton today (great deal and great to work with by the way, no affiliation). Hoping to get it up and running tomorrow. Will post impressions soon.
post #230 of 3823
Mine came in today, but I need to make a bit of a trip to go pick it up, hope to do so on Saturday...

I haven't found much in terms of the documentation for the rs-232 control online, I did find a spreadsheet dated August 31st 2009, version 1.15. I'd link to it, but it is a xls file coming from a .ru domain so I'm not sure how many people would actually click that link, I'm desperate for information though, what can I say

Does anyone have anything more official or recent?
post #231 of 3823
Just got a call from my dealer and mine is in! Better yet, my salesman is dropping it off on his way home tonight! How great is that?

The spreadsheet can be found on a site dedicated to remote controls, which should be easy to find. I use IP to control my DHC-9.9 via Ethernet, and it works wonderfully. RS232 works equally well. I expect that soon we'll have new information from Onkyo about new codes for new inputs. Meanwhile, the old codes will provide most of the control you'll need.
post #233 of 3823
bslep - Awesome service from your dealer! Please post some impressions once it's setup....
post #234 of 3823
Well son-of-a-gun what do you know. I had checked there in the forums but didn't even think of checking the files section, thanks alot, that gives me much faith that the file I had was legit as the two are quite similar. Thanks Steve!
post #235 of 3823
I would not click on a link from .ru.

I just checked my onkyo 885. The grill gets to about 100 F in open space with video on.

Does anyone know an easy way of checking which firmware you have?

I did one firmware update today the 17/9, now i have everything connected again. In the setup face now, testing media streaming atm, working really nice but PMS has better GUI.

Dont think i will be using XT32 i will setup using the old standard way (ruler and SPL meter), it seems that Audyssey kills the GO in the music.
