yes it can, I have the Harmony 880 and it is set up for that. you need to create to new buttons and teach them (use learning function) the zone 1 power on from your onkyo remote and the other button power off, then incorporate them into the system on and off sequences on the harmony

now I have a question, in the past when I had a 3007 and 3008 I was able to connect a small tv using the composite monitor out that I used for things like when listenening to the NET stations and running setup's. This allowed me to see the info without using my projector. I just recieved a new 1009 last Friday and I cannot get any video on the composite for any receiver functions (it does work for CD's from my Blu-ray). Am I missing something (which I doubt) or is the 1009 just not capable of it..... THX

Thank you very much for your reply. I own the Harmony 880 also. It doesn't speak well of Onkyo's customer service that I never got a reply from them.

Not capable .... must use the HDMI-Main to get the OSD.

Well five minutes after I posted this I DID get an email from Onkyo. Instead of trying to help me, they suggested I buy a more expensive Integra.

Yeah... OK... Thanks...

note I never faced the same problem with my HD Satellite box
sorry for my weak english smile.gifsmile.gif
post #278 of 343
Sounds like the 1009 may be converting the video format to something that your projector can't handle properly (although as a 1080p-capable projector that would be a bit surprising).

Did you try setting the 1009 picture mode to "Direct"? This should give you the least video signal manipulation from the 1009.

What format is your XBMC outputting? 480p? PAL or NTSC?
post #279 of 343
thanks man for your help I change the resolution of my VGA card from 1980*1080 50Hz to 1980*1080 24Hz an it worked like a charm it also worked with the 1980*1080 60 Hz but the projector make too much noise
thanks again

How's it going everybody. I've had my TX-NR1009 for about two months now. I have been reading this thread for a while now, so I decided to join in since I've pretty much finished getting all my equipment. I have been wanting to upgrade my A/V equipment for a while, but I just got that chance this summer.

On the audio side, I upgraded from an old Onkyo HTIB (don't remember the model, but it was at least 8 years old). Now I'm running the 1009, Polk Monitor 70 fronts, Polk Monitor 40 surrounds, Polk CS2 center, and I have 2 subs Polk PSW505 and the second is a Velodyne VA-1215X.

On the video side, my new Panasonic TC-P65ST50 plasma was delivered yesterday. It is replacing my Toshiba 42HL167 lcd.

I was hoping to tap the brains of some of the people that have been using this receiver for the last year or so. Has anyone been able to get the Audio Return Channel (ARC) to work with their 1009? I spent about 45 minutes playing with the settings in the receiver AND the television and could not get the audio to "return". I don't know if the problem is compatibility issues between the Onkyo and the Panasonic, settings problems with one or the other, or maybe its a problem with the hdmi cable? I read through both manuals, so I think I tried every setting and input configuration.

Any help/input would be appreciated.
post #281 of 343
I'll step in for a moment with some general info to give you something to work with for now. For ARC to work, on the TV you've got to set HDMI-CEC (VieraLink) to ON, possibly set audio to "external speakers" or "home theater" as well as ensuring the HDMI cable from the AVR is plugged in to the HDMI jack labeled ARC which on Pannys can be either HDMI1 or HDMI2. On the AVR, set HDMI Control (RIHD) to ON. Once all settings are done, turn off the TV and AVR, then power on the TV first, then AVR.

Edit: Additionally, the audio you want to pass through may have to be set to stereo PCM 2.0 regardless of whether the TV can accept DD 5.1 or not. (This only applies for passing the audio through the AVR when it's in Standby mode to the TV and not an ARC related issue).

Thanks jdsmoothie. I have set everything the way you suggested. The only step I didn't try was power cycling with the Panny turning on first. I will try it this evening when I get home, then report back.

The power cycle step didn't help. I actually unplugged the receiver and TV for a few minutes then started the entire process again but still had the same result. I thought it might have been my HDMI cable, so I went to Best Buy and purchased a $100 Monster cable, but that still didn't work. I think it has to be a compatibility issue. I will try to contact Onkyo tech support to see if they have any ideas.

Thanks for you help.
post #284 of 343
Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone can confirm that ARC is working on 1009?

I just wasted 90 minutes of my life on the phone with Onkyo tech support and Panasonic tech support with both trying to push the problem off to the other only because it would be bad "customer service" to blame me directly. I posted the my issue in the Panasonic ST50 thread, and had some replies that ARC is working with other model Onkyo receivers.

I have factored out all variables, so now I'm left with one of my units (TV or receiver) being defective. I just wanted to verify that someone is using ARC and it's not another firmware issue like when my video stopped working because I turned on network control a day before the last firmware update.
post #285 of 343
Nevermind everyone.

I was able to get the ARC and RIHD working. After doing both a soft reset and a hard reset, it was still not working. I then decided to unplug all other HDMI inputs, then power cycled the television and receiver. After pressing the power button on the television remote, the tv AND receiver powered up. Just an FYI if anyone else runs into this issue. The only devices connected via HDMI to the receiver were an XBOX 360 and a Samsund digital cable box (from Time Warner). I'm not sure which device was causing the issue, but apparently it was one of those.

Thanks.

Hi to all!

I want the best AV Receiver for the Q Series.

Iam thinking on:

Onkyo NR1009


Is the Onkyo the best partner for Q Series....???

I sold today my Denon 3311, I did not like it at all...(I went from Onkyo SR608).


Please help!!
post #287 of 343
I want to do 7.1 DSX with Bi-amp my fronts....

It is possible with the NR1009?

Thanks!
post #288 of 343
The 1009 is an older model, you should go for TX-NR1010 which is the current model. The biggest benefit with TX-NR1010 is MultEQ XT32 (1009 has MultEQ XT). Both models support bi-amping and both have Audyssey DSX (or DTS Neo:X alternatively). As far as bi-amping goes check this thread, I remember there being some posts about it.

On the other hand, if you can get a cheap TX-NR1009 somewhere then that's another story...imho the 1009 is quite stable and relatively bug-free because of the firmware updates - enough time has passed for the major bugs to get fixed.
post #289 of 343
Iam buying the NR1009 for 600 dollars plus shipping. Thats why Iam going for it.

My room is very small thats why I think Audyssey XT vs 32XT its not a big deal......rigth? I alway only use 6 points...I dont have more room for more points....

Some one who can tell me if I can do Bi-Amp + DSX 7.1 with the Onkyo.

Thanks!
post #290 of 343
Can you tell us where you're getting it for that price? Refurbs are going for 1199 on Onkyo's site.

If you can get 1009 for 600 dollars then that's plenty of reason enough to go for it. As far as XT vs. 32XT goes the difference is not about the number of listening points, it is about the differences in filter resolutions. Check comparison chart here (bottom of the page). Basically the better the resolution, the better the room acoustics correction and this will indeed help you if you have a "difficult space".

You can, check this post. And please, do try to read this thread. Most likely your questions have already been asked (and answered) by somebody else.
post #292 of 343
I cant find the answer.

You know it?
post #293 of 343
I recently purchased from Onkyo a TX-NR1009 refurbished at $750 to replace a TX-NR905S with a defective HDMI board that was returned to Onkyo.
What a pleasant difference! I really enjoy the ability to have 9.1 sound in different configurations (front/wide or rear w/front or wide) available for my enjoyment.
I'm still experimenting with different listening modes based on the media being used (HD DVD, BLU-RAY and DVD).
I hope this unit outlasts the previous one that went bad right after the warranty ran out.
This one appears to have a better built chassis with better cooling fans.
My system really rocks and kicks (literally) with the following set up:

Definitive Technology speakers:
Center=C/L/R 3000 (built-in sub-woofer)
Fronts=BP20 (towers)
High fronts=BP2 (bookcase surrounds)
Wide fronts=BP2006TL (small towers w/sub-woofer)
Side and dual rear surrounds: BPVX
Sub-woofer=HSU VT3

Butt kicker LFE's at all sitting locations (three middle recliners and two side sofas)

Oppo BDP-93 Blu-ray
Toshiba HD-A35KU HD DVD
Epson 6500UB front projector
Elite TE120HW2 motorized screen

Hi all

Is the following setup possible with NR1009:

(Source: Apple TV) feeds video and audio signals using HDMI to >>>>>
(DAC: NAD M51) splits video and audio as HDMI and 2 channel analog >>>>
(AMP: NR1009) video signal goes into PC video input as HDMI, audio signal goes into PC audio input as analog audio

My questions are:
(1) Is the setup possible?
(2)If yes, will the analog signal (ideally) bypass sound processing stages of NR1009?

Thanks !
Ken
post #295 of 343
Ok, question is resolved: It IS possible to assign analog audio for PC input, with HDMI video

Now back to question number 2:

Is the analogue signal truly bypassed the DSP of NR1009 when listening mode is set to DIRECT?

Cheers
Ken
post #296 of 343
got all my answers smile.gif
1) possible
2) yes


LISTENING MODE: PURE AUDIO

In this mode, the display and video circuitry are turned off, minimizing
possible noise sources for the ultimate in high-fidelity audio reproduction.
A/V Sync does not have effect on the analog audio. (As the video circuitry is
turned off, only video signals input through HDMI input can be output from
an HDMI output(s).

Hi, Guys

I'm thinking to re-set my Onkyo 1009 cos' I find there's little Front Height sound when I'm using the Neo:X mode, even for blu-rays such as Ghost Protocol, Avengers, Transformers DOTM as compared with using Audyssey DSX mode.

I use Audyssey DSX as my default surround mode but whenever I want to try out Neo:X, I find it lacking in FH sound & not sure if it's due to my Onkyo 1009 software error & I've been thinking to reset it.

Thanks.

Ethan

Do remember that these two won't produce the same sounding output because they operate differently.

Anyone know of the best way to add blue tooth to this receiver?
post #300 of 343
We missed being able to use the Onkyo UBT-1 Bluetooth USB Adapter by one year/cycle but there is the Logitech Wireless Speaker Adapter for Bluetooth Audio Devices (980-000540) and similar products.

I was thinking about using Bluetooth for awhile with the receiver but ended up just using my home network, DLNA and apps instead. I removed my iPod docks too. Just simpler to connect via WiFi using my iPod Touch or Galaxy S3 phone.
