Onkyo HT-RC360/370 - Page 20

post #571 of 733
A computer signal is set to 0 ire, or HDMI "full". If you don't want to recalibrate your display, see if your computer can output a HDMI "limited" signal.

Why wont the receiver enter STAND BY MODE. The amp and the top vents are always running HOT and not chilled. The Onkyo "RIHD" is detecting something on and allowing the HDMI Pass-Through on 24/7, and can never turn off and runs hot all day all night. The only way it turns off fully is when I turn off the RIHD in the onkyo in the menu but sometimes at night I want to watch digital CBL with TV speakers running through the AMP. How do i fix this problem is there something I dont know?? The HDMI pass-through and Auto Stand By Mode use to work till recently.

I wonder if it had to do with your cable box. I know most DVR cable boxes have an always on feature, so it can track scheduled recordings.
I've never really checked to see if my Onkyo is always warm. Although I do have the HDMI passthrough option on so it's probably always hot. I'll have to start paying attention to it.

It is strange because while I have it loud, it's not that loud. For comparison I've also been watching the TV show Breaking Bad on Apple TV which is feeding a Dolby Digital sound source. And with that even though it's an internet stream, I can bump that show really loud and never hear any distortion at all.

So my question is basically what might be causing the distortion on the SW trilogy? Is it the funneling of the 6th channel to the surround speakers? And if so are there any settings that might help with this. The manual doesn't mention any troubleshooting for distortion.

Thought I'd bump my previous inquiry since thread hasn't seen any action in a while. How's everyone's RC360/370 doing?!

My 370 is still working after 5 months, so I guess that's good...compared to my previous 1008...

A couple of questions about setting up video inputs to my 360. It turns out that I will have at least one too many inputs. Here is what I have, let me know if I get off track.

(1) Sony 400 disc blu ray changer - HDMI
(2) Oppo blu ray transport - HDMI
(3) XBOX 360 - HDMI
(4) Nintendo Wii - composite video, analog audio (I realize component video is an option)
(5) Pioneer CLD-D704 Laserdisc - composite video-
two digital coax; one from the player and one from the output of the AC3 converter output. I can go into the onkyo menu to change digital sources.
(6) Directv HR20 DVR - HDMI

I realize this is 6 video sources, when the Onkyo will give me only 5. I will connect the two blu ray players to a HDMI Monoprice switcher, and output that to one onkyo HDMI source.

My one question is, can the Aux input be assigned to one of the back ports, or must it be used for the front HDMI input? If not, it seems to me that it should work. Does anyone see any potential problems?


Thanks,
Eric

This started yesterday out of the blue and it has me scratching my head. All of a sudden lots of channels on the TV don't have audio, sorta. Some channels worked fine but others had no voices, but had any music or background noises that were there. I have Uverse TV and subscribe to all of the movie channels, nearly 40 of them, and it was this way on all of them and most of the network channels in HD. Audio seemed to be fine on the non hd channels. I had HDMI cabling but also tried optical digital, it was the same. I tried new cables and no help. I reset the TV, the cable box and the Onyko back to factory settings and still the same.
Of course the audio was normal when coming through the TV speakers, so I figure the TV and cable box were OK. Luckily I still have my older Yamaha receiver so I tried it and it works normally. It doesn't have HDMI but works fine with digital optical inputs.
I'm not sure exactly how long I have had the 370, but I hope it's still under warranty. Anyone know of something I didn't try?

Make sure your center channel speaker is connected properly and working.
post #578 of 733
EJ, you are my hero. That's exactly what it was. I guess the Yamaha worked without it because it was outputting stereo only and not 5.1. It all makes sense now. One of the center speaker wires had come loose at the speaker end. Hindsight makes it seem such a simple problem. Thanks a bunch.

Hey all-
I've been having some problems with network-related stuff.
-DLNA foobar OGG and FLAC files cannot be paused or seeked
(EDIT: this appears to be a transcoding thing; nvm)
-The Android app can't control *any* of the networking stuff and just hangs, as in the error here (and yes, I followed the steps outlined there; didn't help)
Is this normal behavior?

Is there any way to change the default source when powering on? I want it to default to the cbl/sat input but it always defaults to the tv/cd input

Read back thru the thread. Your tv is probably taking over, with Samsung sets the anynet thing does this...with my Harmony remote I just hit help to change it back...what's your setup?

My current setup is the Samsung UN55D8000, with cable box, ps3, xbox 360, & apple tv all plugged into the receiver via HDMI. I had previously used the workaround and assigned the cable box to TV/CD input on the receiver so it would default to that powering on.

But now more recently since HBO Go is now on the Samsung SmartHub, I’ve been using that & it screws everything up because I had to use an optical audio cable to plug the TV’s audio (from HBO GO) into the RC360.

I am going to be picking up a Harmony One remote within the next couple weeks. Once I get that I guess I’ll just turn off Anynet since I can still just control everything with the Harmony.

Not that any of this matters because on April 1 HBO Go is going to be on the Xbox and I can then ditch my optical cable setup and just use the Xbox through HDMI to use HBO Go.

So, sorry for wasting everyone's time with this pointless post.

EDIT: But I guess it's still worth asking if there's a way to set the default input on powering on the RC360 when you're not using ARC. I couldn't find any options in the settings nor any info in the manual. With Anynet turned off (and RIHD off on the Onkyo), does it just use the last input when powering on?

does anybody know just how bad the HDMI board problems are? I am so far quite happy with this but the stories are scary

I really don't think its much of a problem anymore .. i have a ht-rc260 that has been used non stop since i bought it and had it for almost a year already . Plus the two other onkyo's I had never had problems either if there are problems its probably in very few and considered lemons which every manufacture has from time to time .

Is it possible to have the game input video display with the net (pandora) audio at the same time?

I haven't downloaded any firmware yet either, are there any benefits doing so?

Just some info, the problem I had with selecting picture mode- custom, horizontal lines flicker on and off, I solved the problem. I just updated my receiver today and it now doesn't do it, I can do custom picture settings now! It's running flawless now, very happy.

Probably but only if you set Game as passthrough on zone 1, then used the Net on Zone 2. But this would require speakers hooked up to the Zone 2 output in the same room as Zone 1. Kind of a pain!

Oof.

I found a better way to get this to work. My Blu Ray has Pandora as well so I just switched the assignment of the optical input from the blu ray to the game and now i have the game video with the pandora audio. BOOM.

Hey all,
I'm overall pretty happy with my RC360 - I wish the surround functions were more advanced sometimes, but love the implementation of All Ch Stereo. Unfortunately, the Onkyo remote Android app can't access NET functions; every time I try the app just stalls. It's kind of weird as I have no problem doing so with the free but fugly OnkyoTroller app. Has anybody else experienced this? Is there any fix? Maybe an older version of the app would work - do any of you have it?
cheers,

Have you tried enabling network control? Receiver->Hardware->Network, scroll down. Enable. If it can be set in the app make sure the app is set to the same port the receiver is listening to.

Don't have the app but that's what I would try.

So I looked it up and NetworkControl was indeed off, but turning it on had no discernable effect. Really I'm not sure what it was supposed to do or what I expected - I could use the Android app to stream music from my phone and to control much else even with NetworkControl off.
There is no port setting in the app. There is a port setting in OnkyTroller, but it was already set to the correct port.

I've been pleased with my HT-RC360 for the most part, but recently I started trying out the NET features and have had nothing but trouble. Everything appears on my home network as it should, but DLNA to my desktop PC doesn't work, and the receiver can't get to the internet (pandora, etc.) through the router, a Linksys WRT54G v1.1.

However, direct connection to my cable modem seems to work. Firmware has been upgraded to the latest, and I tried the reset also.

I've never had any other problems with this router. Am I missing something? I'm not sure what else I can do short of buying a new router.

Are you using the USB wireless adapter from Onkyo?

i know you can press "receiever" button on the remotote controle mode, then press the "audio/HOME" button on the center of the remote control. Then you can go into "Input" then press select FM TUNER and the Audio will be FM and Video Display will be Game,Cbl,Sat, etc. Im not sure if you can change it to any listening mode you want, but i know you can.

There is no port setting in the app. There is a port setting in OnkyTroller, but it was already set to the correct port.

It seems odd to me that the only problem with the control apps is with the NET function. Almost as if the receiver can only do one network thing at a time. Either accept control from an app or do the NET functions.

I wonder if settting the port on both the receiver and the Onky toller to a different number would work?

I don't have the app or I'd try it myself.

Other people have reorted this same issue so it's not your unit.

Do you need to open up some more addresses on the router?
post #598 of 733
So here is an update on the 360. I've not changed any setting from stock, I did do the firmware update that helped with some issues. Here is what keeps happening and I'm not sure it's normal or not for this receiver. When I play a BR movie the sound cuts off for 1-2 seconds maybe 2-6 times thru out the movie. If I unplug the HDMI cable from my tv to this rec. and plug directly to my br player no issues. Also when I watch a br movie and turn off the rec. and turn on my direct tv I get no signal. I have to turn the rec. back on click on cbl/sat then turn off the rec. and I get a signal. Although sometimes I can turn off the rec. and turn on direct tv and I get a signal. Something doesn't work in pass through is this just a flaw? I talked with a local stereo shop that does custom work and they told me they hear about this alot and think it has something to do with their software.

Nope, ethernet cable to the rear of the reciever.

It's getting an IP; I can see it from my PC and I can see it in the router setup.

All I can think of is some router/port setting I've messed up; bad router; bad ethernet cable; bad reciever.

I'm going to try to swap cable runs to see if the ethernet cable for my blu-ray makes it any better. Then I'm out of ideas.
post #600 of 733
Wasn't the cable.

I also noticed that if I ping it from my PC it times out on occasion. It varies, 10-25% of the pings drop out...
