Hi NODES, the sequence of buttons press is while the receiver is on. Press the "Display" button and hold it down then press the "On/Standby" button. Release both buttons and then hit the "Tone" button once.

I'd like to know as well. I have one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882867001
positioned towards the back the 809 and leave on at all times on low speed whether the 809 is on or off.

Has anyone else with a replacement noticed something similar?
I've had my RC180 back from an hdmi board repair 2 months now & never really paid much attention to the clicking til i got new towers yesterday & was listening to several cds & there's definitely "extra clicking"! Happens ~20 min or so even tho the listening mode hasn't or didn't change! I expect it to click while watching tv & goes from program to commercial or whatever, but not when I'm listening to cds. Have watched several dvds & heard extra clicking too. Who knows??? eek.gif

I just got mine back from warranty repair in California. Fortunately, it took less than 4 weeks, even though, you guessed it, they had to wait for an HDMI board to come in.

But oh damn, one downside to this whole experience: I lost my settings. Is there a good step-by-step walkthrough, in this thread or elsewhere?

I'm using it primarily to play video entertainment from my Popcorn Hour A300 via HDMI, similarly xbox and appletv 3 on rare occasions, and sometimes music listening either through built-in radio stations or airplay on the Apple TV.

the Audessey part is easiest for me to remember. It's all the little set this to direct and set that to blah blah that honestly intimidates me.

Nothin' huh? I'll read the novel-length thread and do some googling and report back for future searchers tongue.gif

I thought someone had done a step-by-step guide at one point...

Try searching this thread for posts by wl1 and jdsmoothie. There will be quite a few recommendations for settings. When I was new to the 809, I cut and pasted many parts of replies into either word or excel. I recall using much of wl1's advice and then tweaking to suit my particular "ears and eyes".

Hope that helps.

Well my TX-NR809 bit the dust last night. No audio.

I'm going to start the process of sending it out for repair and I suppose putting my old JVC back in it's place. I hope it doesn't take too long, but I'm sure it will be a while if anything I'm reading is accurate.

Are you guys that are shipping it off paying the shipping to the repair center, and then they pay shipping back?

That is the correct procedure you pay one way they pay the other.

It does work with the 809 - Messed around with it this afternoon. See below. You do have to enable Network on the 809. Under menu, hardware setup, network. And be on the Net input.










It's pretty cool what you can do with a phone.

Thanks myoda, finally got it to work. Have the 809, Galaxy S3 & Panasonic TH-P50ST50Z TV. I see by your photos of your phone & TV that album art is being shown on both. My S3 shows the album art but not the TV. All it shows is the symbol for a musical note, along with album name, track name and name of singer. What settings do I need to change so as to show the album art on the TV?
Also, is there a setting on the phone to turn off the Onkyo app display, to conserve power? It dims automatically but that's all. When not using the Onkyo app, the screen turns off as to what settings I have set.

I've had the 809 for a while now and have had zero problems. I recently got the PS4 and was having some HDMI handshake issues- quick 1 second screens of static every five minutes or so. My PS4 was having other issues and I just got a replacement today. It's having the same static flicker.

Any ideas on how to fix this? I've tried 2 different HDMI cables.

Have anyone try 6.1 setup with  two front wide speakers? Is it even possible to have 6.1 speakers with two front wide speakers with Onkyo TX-NR809? I have been using it as 5.1 speakers with two front wide speakers for a while. If possible, I want to try the 6.1 setup with two front wide speakers. I'll have plenty of time off this holiday, and I should not have any problem adding a wire in the attic for a surround back speaker. I have an extra surround speaker collecting dust in the closet. 

 

Please provide some thought.....

I think the answer would be you require an external amp to get that going...but since you got time over xmas I say try it out before running wires.

I hope that I don't have to install an external amp to power just the two little front wide speakers. I want to fully utilize the 135w/chn amp in my 7.2 AVR. I'll try to add a surround back speaker on the floor without adding the wire in the attic at first. Thank you for the suggestion.

Hi blurayalltheway, just a couple of things here; 6.1 would be to add a single rear channel to your existing 5.1. To add a pair wide's, you will have a 7.1. If you have the room, the Onkyo's utilize the wide channel through DSX very well.

Also, concerning the 135wpc on your AVR is only for two channels driven at one time. Once you add more channels i.e; 5.1 or 6.1 or 7.1, the power per channel drops significantly.

Right now, I am "fully utilizing" the 135wpc on my 807 because it's only driving the surrounds in my 7.0 set up.............observe;

It is configured for 5.2 with two wides now, but it is not considered a true 7.2 system though. To have a true 7.2 system, you need to have 7 surround speakers (front left, front right, center, rear left, rear right, surround back left, surround back right and two subs).

 

I have a surround speaker collecting dust in the closet. I want to try to configure 809 to 6.2 with two wides. I posted it in here to see if anyone have tried it. I'm trying to avoid moving the 40lbs receiver in/out the cabinet. If no one have try it, I'll try it myself this holiday. Thank you for trying to help though.

Thanks! The 809 must be different from the 807. With mine, I can't set up heights wides or rears without having the basic 5.1; L/C/R and both side surrounds, then I can add one of the afore mentioned. If I add back surround, only then will I be prompted to in put two rears or a single. The single rear is the only way to get 6.1 unless there's new technology i'm unaware of

Here is what I gathered-

 

5.2+wides= yes (it's what I have now)

6.2+wides= un-sure (planning to try it this holiday). It surprise me that no one have done this with TX-NR809, and it have been out for a while now.

 

For sure, 6.2 (using L for a single surround back) without two wides is fine......

Yeah, you lost me. If you have a picture to reference, I might be able to understand what you're trying to say.

I looked up the manual for the 809 and it's just like mine. To employ a 5.1 or 5.2, you can only use L/C/R and side surrounds. There is no way you can run the wide channel and the rear channel on the 807 or the 809, you would need a 9.2 AVR to pull that one off.

So maybe I'm just not understanding what you're trying to set up, but when you say wides, that implies that you have a five speaker front stage, but the side surrounds must be active, and therefore, you are running a 7.x with the wide channel being operational.

This is why I am thinking he will need an external amp to accomplish what he is trying to do.

im not sure that would help. isnt the 809 only a 7 channel processor (plus sub)? he asking it to process 8 channels - standard 5, plus wides, plus 1 surround back - its not gonna happen all at the same time. he could set them up and optionally switch between the wides and the surround back - but both will not be able to operate at the same time. he'd need a 9 channel processor to do what he proposes.

@ NODES; like Jason points out here, even the addition of an amp won't do it. I have three amps with my 807 and 7 channels is still all I'm able to power. Like the 807, the 809 is indeed a 7.2 processor.

The 809 manual even states a basic 5.1 employs the left/center/right channels with side surrounds. I think bluerayalltheway is confused as he tries to point out that a true 7.1 is made up of 7 surround channels. This is not true as the L/C/R are not considered surrounds at all.

Even if he can cheat the AVR and run wide's without surrounds, he won't be able to run Audyssey, nor will he be able to run a single, much less a dual rear channel at the same time as pointed out here, it's not a 9.2 processor.

Nice system!

Today a 7.2 system can mean either Rear surround, Front Wide, or Front Height and in fact Audyssey recommends in order of improved surround experience the Front Wide would provide the most benefit followed by the Front Height, and lastly by the Rear Surrounds as we are better conditioned to hear audio in front of us as opposed to behind us. Although the 809 has 11 sets of speaker posts, this is for convenience purposes only so you can switch between different configurations without having to change out any cables, and has already been noted, the 809 can only process 7 channels of audio at a time. The successor model to the 809, the 818 is also a 7CH AVR but can expand to 9CH with the addition of a 2CH external amp.
