When I have had saves fail I end up with a file that only contains zeroes in all of those columns. If I try to restore from one of those files I will end up with a receiver set back to factory defaults. If I restore from one with numbers in the columns I will have my settings restored.
[Edit] Actually I can't say for sure that you'll get reset back to factory defaults, it may simply do nothing. The only time I've tried to restore from a save with all zeroes in it, was after a microprocessor reset that wiped out all of my settings anyway. Restoring from a save with all zeroes in it left me right where I had been. That was, unfortunately, when I LEARNED that you have to check the files to see if they have data in them. Hence why I try to warn people who are doing saves for the first time to check them! There is little more frustrating than having to do a reset, or losing your settings for some reason and then finding out that the settings file you saved won't help you. Finding time to run Audessey again, re-do all of my custom settings, rename inputs etc. was not terribly fun, and I'd hate for someone else to have to go through that when I could warn them ahead of time!
I promise you if you try to restore form a file with all zeros in it (again using a Hex, NOT a Text, editor) you will be very disappointed.
As a tip, and this may simply be random chance (because of course I've had trouble getting good saves with every browser) it seems like I've had better luck getting a save (at all, much less one with actual data in it) using Opera than I have with any other browser I've tried. (FYI I'm using a Mac running OS X 10.8, though previously I was doing it running 10.7). I actually keep a copy of Opera on my computer pretty much exclusively to try to save config files from my 5006.

They do not make customer support as well as they used to. Thanks for the info.

I actually prefer a pdf manual, that way I can use the find function to search the document for my quesions.

As for the remote, don't use it, do yourself a favour and get yourself a Logitech Harmony and control everything with the one remote.
Program it as the SR6005 instead though and you will get all inputs and not the stupid way they did the SR6006.

Jdsmoothie What does setting the hdmi control do? Thanks
post #1505 of 1955
HDMI Control is the "HDMI-CEC" feature that allows HDMI connected devices to communicate with each other, thus allowing you to for instance, (1) control the AVR (Off mainly) with the TV remote, (2) enables the audio from an HDMI 1.4 ARC enabled TV to pass back to the AVR via the HDMI cable connected from the AVR's Monitor output jack to the TV, and (3) allows an HDMI device to pass audio/video through the AVR while it's in Standby mode. Note however, that #2 and #3 will generally conflict so only one or the other feature can be used.

Quick question, can I get the On-Screen-Display (OSD) through the component out, or will it only work through HDMI?

thanks!
post #1507 of 1955
According to the owner manual, the OCD only displays through the HDMI outputs.

5006 - no, HDMI only; 6006 - yes

This may sound like a stupid question, but I cannot figure how, for the life of me, to turn on the on-screen display. For example, I want to see the volume bar on my display, or the status OSD. But I cannot get either to show up...

Help please?

EDIT: Solved my own problem. Dumb me. My TV set my Xbox and HTPC as a display other than 720p for some reason...

I have got a strange new issue with my 6006. The speaker binding posts for FR and FL make clicking noises all the time and periodically the sound goes away from those speakers. I have to go back and jiggle the binding posts (when they make the clicking noises again) and the sound keeps cutting in and out. I have not moved the receiver or the speakers so not sure whats going on. The speaker wire connects to the receiver using banana plugs. Any ideas whats going on here?
post #1511 of 1955
Its actually worse now. I am listening to music or watching something and after 5 mins or so there will be a clicking sound and the volume from FR and FL would disappear. I'll have to go back, rejiggle those posts (clicking noises again) and sound would come back.
post #1512 of 1955
Hey diptych. It seems like I'm having a similar problem like yours. Did you resolve yours and how did u do so?

Could be a short in your speaker wiring.

post #1514 of 1955
Nope, I checked both sets. I can believe 1 wire or 2, but both sets on FR and FL screwed up at the same time, probably not. thanks tho. Still why would the receiver binding posts make clicking noises when I jiggle them a bit, and without any wired connections either
post #1515 of 1955
This has probably been covered already but i can't seem to find it. Is it possible on the 5006 to get audio form one source and video from another? I knew how to do this on my old 7200, but can't seem to figure out how to do it on the 5006.

So as an example I used to be able to choose an audio source, like CD or something and then switch the video to another source (like the cable box or whatever). I used this sometimes at parties to have music playing for everyone but a football game or something like that on for people who wanted to watch that. Or to be able to play a video game (obviously one in which the sound isn't too important) and listen to music from another source.

Is this possible on the 5006? If so how do I do it? And is it documented in the manual? I couldn't seem to find it in there...
post #1516 of 1955
Yes, it is supported, but the video source must be analog only (ie. component video cable from the cable box). See "Video Select' p. 110.

You'll need to return the reciever for repair or replacement.

If jiggling the speaker connection posts makes things work again, then those posts or the connections to them are defective. (My guess would be that the back panel of the receiver was struck, causing the internal connections to break and become intermittent.)

Unusual problem with one of my SR6006's. A couple of weeks ago, I tried to connect to the home network and got a green screen - nothing worked. I could easily switch to another input no problem, but the network - nothing. I unplugged the unit for about 10 seconds then plugged it back in. After it reconnected with the router, it connected to the home network with no problem. Fast forward to yesterday - the same thing happened again. Has anyone had this problem? What did you do to fix it? I checked the network and all other devices worked including my second SR6006.

Not sure exactly what is going on. I occaisonallly have the same problem with my SR6006. Everything seems to work OK except the Network Functions and Radio. I get the green screen with those.

Hopefully thus will be fixed with a firmware update.

Just purchased a SR6006, using Klipsch RF-82ii, RC-62II and SVS Sub and RS-52ii. I was able to setup the front sound stage last night and just wanted to hear the speakers for the first time. I did not setup audysey. I set my fronts to large and such. After I hook up the rest of the speakers I want to run audysey. Will audysey override the settings I manually did or will I have to change them back to defaults? If I have to change them back to defaults is there a faster way to do it than manually?
post #1522 of 1955
^^^

run audyssey now... it will over-write any speaker settings that you have done, you don't have to worry about that... smile.gif

ensure that after audyssey is finished that you go back and set your speakers to "small" with a crossover of (at least) 80hz...

Sorry to reply so late to this. Thank you! It's disappointing that it has to be analog but at least I know what my options are and aren't.
post #1524 of 1955
So even if it sets the crossovers lower than 80 I should change them back to 80?
post #1525 of 1955
Yep. Assuming you have a Sub, it's better for the info below 80 to be sent there, even if your speakers can technically go lower than that. Basically all Audessey is doing (at least as I understand it) is reporting what the speakers can do, the receiver and you then have to decide what to do with that information. As far as crossovers's go 80 is almost always the way to go.
post #1526 of 1955
Simple question. How do I view what the receiver is decoding audio as. I wan to confirm it is doing Dolby True HD or DTS. I do not see it on the display.

yes...

it is strongly suggested that you read the audyssey setup guide that has been put together... if you go to the "official audyssey thread", you'll find a link to it in many poster's signatures... smile.gif edit: including the poster who made the post right before your first one... wink.gif
post #1528 of 1955
Yep, thanks. I have read over it. Great information.
post #1529 of 1955
I purchased an SR6006 about a year ago. I have two issues I can't seem to resolve:

(1) Due to some room configuration issues, I've only just now hooked up a network cable. That's been very exciting -- AirPlay works great, I updated the firmware, I've been playing with Internet radio, etc. But I can't get Pandora to work. On the authentication screen, it asks for two items: my Pandora email address and my password. I enter those (correctly; I've triple-checked), then hit "OK". I get a message that lasts for about 2 seconds that says "Please wait". Then it disappears and nothing happens. I've waited for 15 minutes without anything happening. If I hit "OK" again, I get the same brief "Please wait" message which disappears again. Nothing. If I go back to the previous screen and try to go back in, it says "Authenticating..." but doesn't connect and I need to go back to the screen to enter my username and password (which are still there). I should note that I actually got Pandora to work after several tries like this right after I hooked up the networking, but after I updated the firmware my Pandora info was gone and I haven't been able to login again. Any ideas?

(2) I have my cable set top box connected to the SR6006 via HDMI, and my TV (a Samsung UN60D8000) connected to the SR6006 via HDMI. I often prefer to listen to TV shows through the TV speaker to keep the volume low because of the way my house is set up. So I like to use the HDMI standby pass-through function on the SR6006 -- in fact, that was one of the main features I was looking for. I just want the SR6006 to not interfere with the STB/TV interaction. But when the SR6006 is off (in Standby mode), and the TV and STB are off, when I turn on the TV and STB my TV doesn't get any signal. I have to turn the SR6006 on, wait a few second for the signal to go to the TV (at which time the audio is going through the AVR's speakers, which is what I'm trying to avoid), and then turn off the SR6006 and wait a few more seconds for the HDMI standby to pass the signal through to the TV. All is well at that point. But if I turn off the TV and want to turn it on again later, I again have to turn on the SR6006 and turn it off again to get the HDMI signal to pass through. Is there a way to set the SR6006 so that it's always passing the HDMI signal through in Standby mode regardless of whether or not it has sensed that the TV has been turned off? I've tried messing with the HDMI control settings but to no avail.
