whenever I turn off and on the recevier, my subwoofer is at 0, treble at +10, bass at +8.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Thanks in advance.

Hi anorexicwallet, adjustment made using "Audio" button are just temporary adjustments and are cancelled when the receiver is turned off (or to Standby).

To adjust and save these settings, go to Level Calibration under Speaker Setup.

Hi rc360noob, as E-JTL mention no can do. Does your Sony tv has a DVI port?

Hey guys, need some help.

I have an onkyo ht-rc360 and I can't seem to get the wireless USB to work. It connects with between 35-47% strength but still get a connection error when trying to access pandora or any other channel.

When I hard wire the Ethernet to it, it works fine. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks so much in advance!

The latest firmware update adds the AUPEO! and the last.fm services to the NET menu. As the NR609 thread is reporting the last.fm app appears to have a weird geoblock problem in the US receivers, at least it does in mine anyway.

Is that really correct? I just want to pass the video through HDMI without changing the resolution. My Blu-Ray will send 1080P24 and DirecTV Box will send 1080i60, 1080P24 or 720P60 depending on the source/channel. As my TV is 1080P 120 Hz I would rather let the TV convert the incoming video to the native resolution without any intermediate conversions.

The manual says 'Through: Select this to pass video through the AV receiver at the same resolution and with no conversion.' So that would seem to be the best setting for me.

I am seriously considering this receiver to replace a Yamaha HTR-5760 as I now need HDMI on the receiver to get Netflix 5.1 audio from a Roku XS.

However I don't want to pull 45 watts in standby mode!

Most manuals list this... I'm sure it's online.


In the following cases, the power consumption in
standby mode may reach up to a maximum of 43 W:
– You are using the Universal Port jack.
– “Network Control” is set to “Enable” in the
“Network” setting.
– “HDMI Control (RIHD)” setting is set to “On”.
(Depending on the TV status, the AV receiver
will enter standby mode as usual.)
– The “HDMI Through” setting is set to other than
“Off

Thanks.

OK - so I won't be using the Universal Port Jack or Network Control, will turn off RIHD (just causes confusion if using a Harmony One) - but it seems I will use HDMI Through Mode.

Looking in the manual it also says

'The power consumption during standby mode will increase
during the HDMI Through function; however in the following
cases, the power consumption can be saved:
- The TV is in standby mode.
- You are watching a TV program.'

So it sounds like if the TV is in standby maybe the power consumption will be lower even if HDMI through is selected. Anyone able to confirm this?

It seem that HDMI Through is doing two different things here.

1. Passing HDMI video through without conversion (which I want).

2. Passing HDMI through even if the receiver is in standby mode (no use to me as I always use the receiver for audio).

Not sure why they grouped these two very different functions together.

Onkyo unfortunately uses the term HDMI Through to mean two different things.

One meaning of through is when the receiver is in standby the HDMI signal can be passed through the receiver to the TV. Like when you want to watch TV from the cable or satellite and just use the the TV's speakers. This is the setting that is reported to use 45watts of power in standby. manual p53, Remote->Receiver->setup->hardware->HDMI

The other meaning of HDMI Through is picture mode, "through the receiver", as in change the resoulution but not the picture quality (upscale but not brightness etc). Direct mode is the setting that does not change the resolution or the quality. manual pp.37,49, Remote->receiver->Home->Video->picture Mode

took me awhile to realize Onkyo's multiple use of the term.

OK that makes more sense.

Does anyone know if it is possible to pass HDMI through to the TV while listening to the radio (or other audio only source)? I can't seem to get that to work. It passes through when on standby, but not when the receiver is on. The manual states that passthrough is possible 'whether the AV receiver is on or in standby'. Seems to me this should work.

Never mind folks! This is working after the firmware update. Either they addressed this in the update, or I just needed to restart the receiver.

Got a RC-360 at Frys today. Ask in store and they want full msrp $549! Order online for pickup in (the same) store at $309 (close enough to the $299 price).

Will set up this weekend.

Now I'll have 6 networked devices (TV wired, Direct DVR wired, XBOX 360 wired, Wii wireless, Roku XS wired and the receiver wired) - seems a bit much really. 4 will do netflix, 2 Pandora etc
post #223 of 733
I am doing a little reading brfore setting up my RC-360.

According to the Audyssey web site '2EQ - Our basic resolution room correction solution that uses basic resolution filters for the satellites, but does not apply a filter to the subwoofers.'

The RC-360 manual says 'If you're using a powered subwoofer and it outputs very low-frequency sound at a low volume level, it may not be detected by Audyssey 2EQ Room Correction and Speaker Setup. If the Subwoofer appears on the Review Speaker Configuration screen as No, increase the subwoofer's volume to the half-way point, set it to its highest crossover frequency, and then try running Audyssey 2EQ Room Correction and Speaker Setup again.'

So does the RC-360 Audyssey 2EQ does any checking/setting on the subwoofer output? If not how are other people making sure the sub is balanced with the satellites?
post #224 of 733
It will calculate the distance & set the level of the sub, but it will not apply any filtering to flatten out the response. You would have to jump up to the next line(709 or 370) for it to apply any filtering to the sub.

Hey guys,

I currently have canadian Netflix on my PS3 and US Netflix on my iPhone (via VPN). I know I can watch videos already on my iPhone through the 370 using either the composite cable or UP-A1 dock. Is there any way to watch the US Netflix through the 370/iPhone?
post #226 of 733
OK I set my new RC-360 yesterday evening and I am very happy. It does sound a lot better than my Yamaha HTR-5760. I think it is mainly the Audyssey 2EQ set up rather than any inherent better audio quality in the amp. Surround imaging is better, dialog clearer and the whole audio just seems clearer.

Some questions.

1. I have enabled Audyssey Dynamic EQ. I see it says the reference level offset should 0DB for movies, 10DB for TV content etc. I don't want to be changing this depending whether I am watching TV or a movie. I assume this is just an offset and so I just set the volume at the level which is conformable for the content.

2. I am using the Audyssey Dynamic Volume so dialog sounds OK without getting very loud peaks. I have set to light compression and it seems OK. What setting are others using and how do you like it?

3. I have set picture adjust mode to direct (surprised I had to do it for every input). I just want the video sent though the receiver without any processing. I assume in this mode it is ignoring the wide mode setting - which I have left to auto.

4. Listening Modes - I haven't done anything. I just want the receiver to play DTS-HD MA as DTS-HD MA, Dolby TrueHD as Dolby TrueHD etc without interfering and the only additional processing to be the Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Audyssey Dynamic volume. I assume it does this by default.

1. I do the same. One setting, just adjust the master volume.
2. I usually use no compression, but I wouldn't be offended by low. High...maybe a little offended (you know, if I were a sound engineer or something).
3. Unless you push a button to select movie mode or some other thing, you should be getting the direct audio without additional processing.
4. Yes, direct is straight through with nothing added. The only thing I have set otherwise is a Wii so it upconverts to 1080. Everything else is direct.

Edit...just realized I have 3 and 4 backwards.

Any trick to getting Pandora to work.

When enter my username and password it says they are incorrect - even though they are not.

I have the latest firmware (I know because it spent 30 - 40 minutes doing an update yesterday)
post #229 of 733
Do any of the other NET applications work?

Did you try to enter the password through the web setup page?

Try pointing your browser at 192.168.0.179

if that doesn't work:
On Win 7 open Windows Explorer and click on Network
do you see the receiver?
Right click then select view device web page

Once you're on the HT-RC360 setup page:

Click the My Favorites tab
then the Customer Settings button
Try entering your Pandora password there using a real, instead of virtual, keyboard.

That worked - thanks.

One more question - how do I know which listening mode I am in using Pandora. It seems like a lot of the remote buttons don't work when in Pandora. It seems I am getting all channel stereo - but without the sub (which works fine in from other sources)

EDIT - OK I see I need to press receiver on the remote to change listening modes and then net again to navigate net applications. Need to think about how to set up my harmony one.

(Also I noticed Vista wanted to load a driver for the RC-360 - I did this before seeing I could just right click and see properties. What does this driver do?)
post #231 of 733
Is the UWF-1 the only thing I need to access Pandora? Is there a cheaper way?
post #232 of 733
Run a cat5 cable from your home router to the HT-RC360 ethernet port?

I find myself using vTuner and to a lesser extent the new Aupeo app far more than Pandora.

I'm sure there is an easier way to do it than what I did but...

Go in to the Harmony and Learn the IR codes for the Onkyo. Make sure you press NET on the remote first, and then go through the commands you want. I made all the directionals, return, enter, play, pause, and menu I think. That gets me through most everything in Pandora or Spotify.

Last.FM started working. I guess the people at Last fixed their geoblocker because I haven't taken a new HT-RC360 firmware update since the Last.Fm app appeared and it was initially blocked.

Works now. Create an account at http://last.fm/join -free!, enter it into to the HT-RC360 login screen and it came right up.

Thank You Onkyo!

I've had an HT-RC360 for a couple of weeks. Awesome receiver but I am having a problem setting it up with my Samsung LCD (UN55C8000).

I have the 360 set up to receive the TV signal through HDMI from my DirecTV receive and pass the picture through to the TV through the HDMI-Out. There is nothing else connected between the 360 and my TV. When I turn on the TV, STB and receiver and select the CBL/STB input on the 360, everything works great.

However, if I turn off the TV and turn it back on, the 360 insists on switching the input to TV/CD. Of course, there is nothing connected to the TV/CD input and all I get is silence. It is driving me nuts as the TV is often turned on after the 360.

I have a feeling this is related to the Audio Return feature. However, I have turned the feature on and off with the same result. Besides, I'd really like to keep Audio Return on.

Any suggestions on what may be causing this or how I can correct it?

Hi ufischer, this is cause by Samsung AnyNet+ feature... turn AnyNet+ to off if your not using the internet apps.
post #237 of 733
Really? I was under the impression that AnyNet+ was Samsung's brand name for their implementation of HDMI-CEC, i.e., controlling of multiple devices through HDMI. I really do not want to turn this feature off as I rely on it to control the 360's TV volume using the DirecTV remote. The 360 is inside a cabinet.

Samsung calls it Anynet, LG calls it Simplink, Onkyo calls it RIHD. It's all the HDMI control function. Your Samsung is requesting ARC to the Onkyo, which switches the Onkyo to the TV/CDinput.

Hi All,
Just got an HT-RC360. Everything plays well together, but I'm having a hard time getting my head around the Listening Mode stuff. The manual says "Input Source The following audio formats are supported by the listening mode. MONO, STEREO, 5.1ch, 7.1ch, DTS-ES, and DDEX." The manual also explains how to display the source information. OK, I figure if I know the source signal format, that will help me select the appropriate listening mode (ed. Do I really need 43 different ones?). Anyway, with the cable box input selected, the source is displayed as Dolby D 2.0, with the AppleTV (used as media server) input selected, the source is displayed as PCM 2.0. Obviously, none of these are in the "supported audio formats" above.
I have also noticed that as I cycle through the modes, I get different combinations of speaker configs - 2.1, 3.1, 5.1.
Has someone written a tutorial somewhere that makes all this clear?
Maybe someone can explain? And yes, it's possible I haven't configured the unit correctly.
Thanks for any help. HNick
