Onkyo HT-RC360/370 - Page 4

post #91 of 733
Hello all,

I am also one of the lucky ones that managed to grab the 360 from the $299 sale at Fry's. I bought it couple of weeks ago when they had their anniversary sale and I have been very satisfied with it!

I have couple of questions, though. I have read all the posts on this thread and the questions are:

1) How do you enable the temperature display on the front panel like Dcmkx2000 shows in the picture? I tried to find it from the manual but was not able to find it. Mind you, I do not think I have any temperature issues with the receiver, though. When I test the surface temperature, it is not hot at all. The geek in me just would like to know every little feature of the receiver.

2) This might be a tricky one and maybe will not have any good solution. I have Samsung's LCD TV (UN55C8000) and I want to use its NetFlix, Vudu, etc. features so using the Audio Return Channel is very important to me so that I can hear the sound from the TV through my receiver. It works really nicely and I have no problems with it.

I also have Logitech's Harmony One remote control.

The problem is that whenever I use the Harmony One to power everything on and start watching TV (I have TiVo for watching TV), play PS3, watch Blue-ray movie, etc. I see everything is powered on correctly and I see the correct HDMI input is chosen on the receiver. After a second or so, when the TV finally turns on, the receiver detects the TV and automatically switches to 'TV/CD' mode, hence I hear no sound or in the case of PS3 or Blue-ray, I see incorrect picture. I have to either use the Harmony One's 'Help' button which will switch the input back to the correct HDMI input, or use the receiver's remote to switch the input there. Neither one of them is very elegant solution.

I have read both the TV's and receiver's manuals to find out if there was a way to disable this automatic input selection when a device is powered on, but the only way I can do it is by disabling RIHD on the receiver, or by disabling CEC on the TV. Both of these actions will also disable Audio Return Channel so they will not be good options for me.

Does anyone else have a similiar problem? Is there a good solution for it?

I think I should be able to configure the Harmony One to wait for second or two and then do an additional mode switch action to switch the receiver back to the correct input, but that would mean I would have to keep the remote pointed toward the TV for those couple of additional seconds which would not be that convenient.

By the way, this issue only happens when I turn everything on. If I go from watching TV to watching Blue-ray and the TV was already on, everything works just fine.

I did reconfigure the Harmony One to first turn on the TV and last turn on the receiver, but that did not help. They are all turned on quickly enough that the TV is still waking up when the receiver is already on.

Quite frankly, I cannot fathom a scenario where anyone would like to have the receiver switch into 'TV/CD' mode when the TV is turned on. I am sure 99.9% of the people who use a receiver like this will have a cable box / Tivo for watching TV so why would the receiver assume that turning on the TV means someone wants to use the 'TV/CD' mode of the receiver? Or maybe I have misunderstood something completely.

For the record, I have my TiVo configured to use the 'CBL/SAT' mode and the 'TV/CD' is used when I use the TV's own apps, like NetFlix, Vudu, etc. I assume it is the 'RIHD' / 'CEC' features that automatically switch into this mode when I use these apps on the TV (the Audio Return Channel only works when you are in the 'TV/CD' mode).

Sorry about the long winded post. I wanted to explain everything in as much detail as possible to avoid any misunderstandings.

Thanks!

Try playing around with adding some pauses to your macros on the Harmony One. Having to hold the remote pointed at your devices for an extra second really shouldn't be a deal breaker for you if it solves the problem.

This was from another post in this forum, I just copied and pasted the comments:

you can take the temperature reading of your Onkyo by doing this:

Do this on the front of the receiver, press and hold the display button, then press and release the standby button, then very quickly after you release the standby button, press the tone button, you have to be quick to press the tone button after releasing the standby button. Your temperature will then read out on the front panel.

Thanks repower, that worked great. I wonder what the information on the first line reveals.

Here's update to my RIHD madness:

I was Googling regarding this issue and many other people have encountered it before me. It happens with other Onkyo receivers as well and inconveniences people even without Harmony One remote.

I found this thread:

http: //www.avforums.co.za/index.php?topic=6183.20;wap2

(Not allowed to post URL so I added a space between the ':' and the '//")

Where a user with name 'Skeeter' had managed to fix it with his Onkyo receiver. The thread did not reveal his receiver's model, but it was not HT-RC360 but something older. His solution was to turn off option called 'TV Control' within the RIHD settings. Unfortunately the 360 does not have this option so it did not help me.

When I re-assessed my situation, I realized two things:

1) Since I have the Harmony One remote, I really do not need the RIHD feature except for the Audio Return Channel.
2) I can just use an optical cable between the TV and the receiver to get the same result as ARC would give me

So what I ended up doing was disabling RIHD altogether and setting up two new 'activities' on my Harmony One, one for accessing my DLNA media server using the TV's 'Media.P' remote button and another to access the TV's apps like NetFlix, VuDu, YouTube. etc using the TV's 'Internet@TV' button.

Each activity will first set the receiver into the 'TV/CD' mode so the audio through the optical cable is heard. When the activity is terminated, the remote will send 'Exit' button press to the TV which will switch back to normal display instead of the App / media server display. It works perfectly.

This had the added bonus that I no longer get double-volume adjustment display on my TV when I adjust the volume. I used to get two when I was watching TV because the receiver would show one, and also the TV via HDMI/CEC would also show one. The receiver's scale was from 1-80 but the TV's scale was from 1-100 so the numbers did not even match. Plus it just looked messy with two overlays on top of each other.

By the way, I also learned a lot about the HDMI/CEC feature. Most modern TVs, Blue-Ray players and receivers support it but different manufacturers have given it their own names. Onkyo calls it RIHD and Samsung calls it Anynet+ for example. The idea is to allow different components to be controlled with one remote where the remote command is transmitted to the respective device via the HDMI cable. Each manufacturer has implemented it a bit differently, though, so none of them guarantee it will work with other manufacturer's equipment. It seems like in practice it does work nicely between different manufacturer's devices, though. I did read, though, that Sony in their infinite wisdom has implemented it on their devices so it only works with other Sony devices. They call it BRAVIA Sync.

Sounds like a very neat feature for people without an universal remote like the Harmony One. It worked nicely when I had it enabled and I was using Onkyo's remote. When I turned TV off, it would turn receiver off as well, for example. Also when I turned Blue-Ray player on, it would switch input to it automatically.

Britbill, I just updated my receiver over the internet but when I look at Onkyo's site, I can see the update there as well. I am not sure if this link works from Canada, but for me in US it has the download link to the ZIP file under the link: "Download HT-RC360 Firmware Update File in Zip Format":

http: //www.us.onkyo.com/model.cfm?m=HT-RC360&class=Receiver&p=d

very happy so far with the rc 360. very easy, intuitive set up and operation. sound processing very good...heard things on Harry Potter Deathly Hallows that We've never heard before. actually like the studio mix music mode for several mp3 songs I've listened to (Norah Jones and the little Willies especially)- never cared for the yamaha's modes very much.

only complaints are that I lose all the video processing, gui and on screen ipod functions with component video in and out. not sure why they chose not to support this (cost?) but video plays through unadultered just fine and for now that's fine til I get a new pj. the remote could be better and the buttons on the front panel are unreadable to my eyes. all in all, very happy especially at this price point and i got it from "big river" and not during fry's great sale.

Weird. I had upgraded to the 04/22 firmware a couple of weeks ago. That's the only one I see on the websites and trying over the net now my receiver says I already have the most recent firmware.
post #99 of 733
Hey guys. I have a weird problem. Recently when switching from any activity to BD/DVD I dont get any audio on that particular input until I turn the receiver off/on. Any ideas what the cause is?
post #100 of 733
It's back on sale at Frys; can't beat it it the price.

I'm working with a entertainment center with limited space.
can one of you post the depth of the RC360 from the speaker binding terminals to the front knob? I don't trust online specs you never know where they are measuring from.
post #102 of 733
Does the fan only turn on when it's hot? My fan isn't running. I do have an external fan sucking air out of the top of the system, which keeps it quite cool. Just wondering if the fan only turns on when it's hot or is mine defective.
post #103 of 733
Does anyone know if Pandora can be played from a iPhone/iPod via the USB input on the RC360 or if only music downloaded to the phone can be played?

Thanks

Picked up the HT-RC360 yesterday - Fry's has the sale again. A snap to setup. I replaced a 15y/o Onkyo TX-SV828THX with the serial port attached ED301 DD5.1 surround processor. Never used the THX modes. I'll keep the amp and use it in the guest room.

Knew I was missing quite a bit of the new stuff but Wow! what a difference. Love the little mic that does the Audessy speaker calibration for you. Miss the external 120 AC switched and unswitched that I used as trigger control to a power box. And really miss the ability to turn the Onkyo display off not just dim. And sort of miss the phono pre but I already have an external RIAA pre so I can record the vinyl to the PC. I'll just move it back and forth.

But the sound. Oh My. It's as if I have new ears. Loved TRON in DTS.
My gear LG 55LV3700. LG BD570, Scientific Atlanta 8240HD/DVRCable box. Turntable and preamp TV, AVR and BD all on a wired network with the PC and the internet. PhaseTech 5 speakers kind of lame sony 100w powered sub .1

Updated over the net - easy
signed up for Mediafly internet radio - heard NPR podcast, Yay! I live on the wrong side of a mountain for any over the air signals.

1080/24p upconvert is cool. The LG LED/LCD has no problems with it even though it is only 60HZ - about 40% less than the 120Hz version. The Cable signal is mostly 1080i. 1080/24p is better looking

Turned off the RIHD even though the TV and Blu-Ray support the CEC over HDMI - called simplink in LG land. but RIHD works too well and kept switching the receiver over to the Blu-Ray when I wanted to watch cable and hit the power up everything button on the cable box remote. Turned off RIHD. LG simplink still works through HDMI between the TV and BD

The Onkyo remote had codes for everything but the no DVR controls SA Cable/DVR box? So use the Onkyo remote for everything except DVR playback (it can get to the guide and set record)

In the setup under network there is a setting for Network control (dis/en)abled and pick a port. Anyone know what this is for?

I make it 12 3/4" assuming nothing is plugged in to the post.
post #106 of 733
In Win 7 open Explorer, select network. Click on the HT-RC360 icon. A driver from Windows update downloads?! Onkyo 2011 AV driver

Now right click the icon. Select View Device Web Page.

See the HT-RC360
setup up all the media server IDs and passwords, Pandora, slacker, napster etc. at once using a real keyboard.

Enter up to 40 internet radio station URLs

On my local network the HT-RC360 is located at
http: //192.168.0.179/
(newbie space in url)

no clue if it's the same on yours

Soon as the wife is done with her evening TV I'll check to see if it actually worked.

Succesfully setup my Pandora account through the web browser.
Tried one URL for a radio station - haven't succeeded yet - rejected by server error probably using the wrong url.
Tried the Win 7 Playto - it sees the HT-RC360 but gives a can't control device message. I have network control enabled on the receiver but no idea which port to pick or where to tell windows which port to use.

[edit]Got playto to work. the receiver must be in NET mode and DLNA must be entered then playto from within WMP12. It's in the manual waiting for me to read it.

I have a quick question about the upconversions of this rec. Will the 360 up convert a component signal to 1080? I thought I had read it does analog but not digitial.

Next, if I have a old DVD player without HDMI will I have to run a component cable to the TV or can it convert to HDMI output?

Thanks
post #112 of 733
Component video is analog so yes your receiver will upconvert analog signals.
post #113 of 733
RE: Pandora via iPhone/iPod - No, you can only play your music files via the USB cable. The receiver's built-in Pandora client works really nicely, though, so I cannot think a reason why anyone would like to play Pandora via iPhone through USB to the receiver.

RE: Upconversion of component signal - Like afrogt said, yes it will. Mind you, upconversion will only work via the HDMI-out port so you have to connect your TV to the receiver using HDMI cable.

RE: Old DVD player without HDMI - No need to run component cables between receiver and TV, it will go through the HDMI-out port. I have one of the old XBox 360's without HDMI so I am using component to connect it to the receiver (and optical for audio) and it works perfectly through the HDMI-out port into my TV.

I really dig that this can play FLAC files over a home network, but what's it like navigating to the music and different directories and such? Is it done via the on screen display? What if the TV is off? And if it works with the TV off, how is navigating with just the receiver's display? It seems like it might be awkward and difficult in that situation. Any feedback or experiences are welcome.

My experience with FLAC was not bad. Not perfect but I'd very good. It's navigation is on TV's screen and receiver's screen also. Receiver shows the entire titles rolling the words to the left. The stuff showed on TV's screen is cut.

The navigation into de folders might be influenced by the DLNA server that you use.

Yes, it works with TV off.

There's also an Android app to control the receiver. "Onkytroller" is the name as I recall. There's a basic free one and a pay one. I've played with the free one and I can see it being handy to change net radio channels from another room or the back porch

Hi People :

Just got this UNIT last night , still on sale for " $299" in Frys .

I Went to fry's in Irving , the Rep told me he don't have any on stock , and try to push me to geta SONY 5.1 with 4 HDMI inputs.

I told him , I Checked Online and they had some in stock.

He looked around and find them .

Also he told me the price was $ 549 , the $ 299 was last week price, Again , Show him frys.com in my iPhone and clearly said " $ 299 "

He took me to the SECRET LOCATION ( where they had 4 new units in box ) . btw the secret location was the regular HT Section.

I Saw 4 new units , I went to look around to the cameras area , and probably in less that 15 minutes , was only 2 Units LEFT !

So I waste NO TIME , and Pick one for myself .

So If anyone want one , there's ONE UNIT in the Irving location.

Also I grab a HDMI 4.1b cable with a Charger for Xbox360 / COMBO was $ 14.99 .

I have the Mitsubishi WD-73837 ( With the Paul's TV deal last year ).

I connected last night my :

* XBOX 360 via HDMI
* PS3 via HDMI
* Fios via HDMI
* Wii via Component .

I connected everything and turn it up , I was very very impressed without any tweak , the sound was cleared , louder and the DD 5.1 from Fios sound was really great !!!

My old TH was a SONY 5.1 around 6 years old .

Picture in my XBOX and Fios looked great ( didn't test the PS3 ) .

But my Wii does not work : ( , I can get the SOUND but not the picture.

I have my TV in PS3 Mode .

Any ideas ?

Thanks !

I'm not sure if this helps: there is a priority with inputs. Say the ps3 and wii are on game/tv, with the ps3 being hdmi and the wii component. When the ps3 is running, the wii wont get video thru until the ps3 is off, then the amp will look at the next priority input. Some hdmi components put out a black signal when off, so the autoswitching is fooled (you have to manually force the swap via menu selection, or unplug the hdmi unit). I have a wii and ps3 running OK on it. If the above doesn't help, tell us what is hooked to what input.
