"Official" Onkyo TX-NR809 Thread - Page 174

post #5191 of 5812
Has anyone here experienced (resolved) the Sirius playback error? I use this in the summer time to stream music to a zone 2, so I haven't used it in a while. I went to use it last night and I am getting a playback error. So I did some digging and apparently I am not alone, that all of a sudden w/ the last firmware update a lot of Onkyo's started having Sirius playback errors.

I've tried unplugging the onkyo for a soft reboot and that didn't work. I unplugged my modem on my PC and that didn't work. I know my connection to my PC is good because I can still stream DLNA music via WMP11. It's just something w/ the Sirius.

Was hoping someone here has had any experience here and could point me in the right direction. ( I am not very tech savy, so detailed directions would be VERY helpful)

Thanks for any help!!

The only thing I have done differently from when I thought it turned off when the system was off was get it hardwired to the internet.

Any ideas?

Where and which USB fan you got...I have a closed cabinet and will like to add some ventilation...I am presently blowing air from the front with a small fan in the short term...thks..

i got two pairs of these mounted on the back of my cabinet. they plug into the usb hub attached to the usb port on the 809 and turn on when the receiver is turned on.

Now that was helpful... Thank you soooo much!
post #5196 of 5812
I'm curious about that too, who wired 220v to a regular plug outlet?

Thanks for both of your replies. This confirms it did turn on and off at one point and I'm not crazy. Are either one of you running both HDMI outs? Also are you using the ARC functionality? I'm trying to narrow down what changes I made before it switched to staying always powered on.
post #5199 of 5812
No I'm only using the back hdmi And yes arc is on

Can someone please tell me if disabling video processing/using "through" mode on the 809 also disables the OSD?
post #5201 of 5812
The only true bypass of Vido Processing is via the shortcut involving DVR/VCR button, and Skip.

And no, even with Skip, OSD is still present.

Thanks for that reply. What I actually meant to ask was if bypassing the processing disables the OSD overlay. For example on my Denon 3312 it displays the OSD on top of the video source, but if the processing/upscaling is disabled then it only shows the OSD without the source video behind it.

Also, does the 809 have the 24p frame skip bug? Or was that fixed with a FW update and/or only an issue on other models like the 608/609, 818, etc?

Edit: Now I'm worried about all of the bad HDMI board issues I've seen. Is/was this a widespread issue?

The HDMI board issue has been around the since the x06 models, these units from Onkyo do not stand the test of time.

I am from the UK, we only have 230V sockets (P,N and E). The plugs for these are all the same. It seems crazy to have different socket/plug/voltages in the same house.

I have no idea where Xhattan lives, maybe the US - maybe not. How he came to blow his unit up - no idea! smile.gif

But I could tell from his "thank you soooo much" comment, that it may not have been such a mistake as some think.

Xhattan - remove the mystery for everyone?
post #5207 of 5812
I know the UK is 230V, I wondered why if it was a US unit why was it in UK, or did someone improperly wire a US house.
post #5208 of 5812
Thanks. I found my answers. I may get the 818 as the 24p bug has been corrected with FW and I don't see all of the reports of bad HDMI boards. Probably because of the included fans in the 818.

I'm trying to program a Harmony 700 remote and I've been searching for an answer, but haven't found one yet. I'm using this receiver with a tv and a projector. I need the command to change from one hdmi out put to the sub one. It's in the menu setup and there is monitor out, main or sub. Is there a direct command, or hex code available. I called Logitech support and they said there wasn't one. That I'd just have to add steps to press all these different buttons to do it? Any help is awesome!!!!
post #5210 of 5812
Have you looked to see if "Both" is possible? TV and Projector would need to be the same resolution, though you can give priority over one than the other.

P45 :-

Both:
Select this if your TVs are connected to HDMI OUT MAIN and HDMI OUT SUB. Video signals are output from both HDMI outputs at the resolution supported by both TVs.
Both(Main):
Select this if your TVs are connected to HDMI OUT MAIN and HDMI OUT SUB. Video signals are output from both HDMI outputs but HDMI OUT MAIN will become a priority; depending on the resolution, video signals may not be output from HDMI OUT SUB.
Both(Sub):
Select this if your TVs are connected to HDMI OUT MAIN and HDMI OUT SUB. Video signals are output from both HDMI outputs but HDMI OUT SUB will become a priority; depending on the resolution, video signals may not be output from HDMI OUT MAIN.
post #5211 of 5812
I tried calling Logitech and they want $30 dollars to do it???? If I email the code that I think I found does it have to be the hex code or the smaller one like: D2AC D4??? The chart I finally found has three hex codes listed for each command??? Not sure about that....

Great idea!!!! I will try this now and see what happens....

I just tried and this seems to work great! Thank you so much!!!

Has anyone looked into whether there's a discrete code (for Harmony remotes) for Whole House Mode?

I currently own a TX-NR809, and have a friend looking at the 626... Waiting for the inevitable price drop... However there is a great deal to be had on 809's (today) and I am trying to be sure that pushing him towards the 809 (despite its age) at >$400 is a better option than a 626 at <$450. I see the 626 has some nifty features (WiFi, BT, FLAC, etc) but I tend to think those seldom used features won't outweigh the quality of a * series chassis and power output. Any opinions on the benefits of one vs. the other is greatly appreciated.

(Yes, I posted this in a 626 thread too...)

I debate upgrading my aging 805 for the said 809 deal. Wonder what the used street price on the 803 would be (craigslist being the street)

I still can't figure it out. The fan is still spinning when the receiver is off. The only thing I'm doing differently is running the HDMI sub out to another input on the TV. I'm also hardwired to the internet. Which always leaves the net icon on the receiver.

Turn Net control Off momentarily to test. Both HDMI Through and Net Control prevent the AVR going to Standby (<1W). I suspect the USB port may be staying on in this mode (~35W).

+1

That's how it works with my 609!

Just an update for those interested...it took involving the Better Business Bureau after dealing with newleaf for over a MONTH to resolve this. Supposedly they have sent me a check (which I haven't received yet). I would highly recommend you skip ANY newleaf service plan. Giving square trade a try this time.

Talking to the new leaf service team is like calling a payphone and getting some random passerby. They know about as much and seem just as interested. Can't express how frustrating it has been.
