NET based inputs like SiriusXM and Pandora play just fine though.

My understanding was the 1010 would play HDMI audio to Z2/3 with the caveat that if I selected the same input for the Main Zone, the Main Zone would drop down to a PCM 2.0 signal.

Go to the Monitor Out menu and set Zone 2 HDMI to "use".

I have an interesting issue; DTS-HD is auto-expanding 5.1 to 7.1, and I can't find a way to get it to output correctly. I've changed it to "straight decode", checked multiple players - PS4, PS3 and Panasonic 210 - and the problem is present on all of them. I've tried multiple settings in sound program as well to no avail. Dolby TrueHD outputs correctly - so I'm at a loss. Anyone know how to fix this?

I have the 1010 and love it. A few questions iif someone can help please.

I have a 5 channel Emotiva external Amp for the Left, Center, Right, RS and LS. I have searched, called support and cannot seem to find a solution to turn on the amp when the Onkyo powers on. The trigger outs that I see only work for Zone 2 and Zone 3. Any have a solution?

2. When I play same audio source in Main Zone and Zone 2. The Sound is slightly delayed in Zone 2. Any thoughts.

Thanks, Chris

I had the same issue with my Onkyo 818 (and now Onkyo 1010). I just spliced a mono 3.5mm jack to a USB cable and connected it to the back USB port, the USB port is only active when the receiver is on, so it functions like a 12v trigger without the hassle of toggling different zones on.

Hope this helps.

^ Absolutely genius!
post #128 of 154
Just got mine and seems like the HDMI inputs are set to use non HDMI audio input. How do I set it to use the HDMI audio?


BD input shows audio is Coaxial audio 2..


ALL I am getting out of speakers is static noise

is A4L an authorized dealer? I bought mine refurb from OneCall on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Onkyo-TX-NR1010-Open-Box-7-2-Channel-Home-Theater-Receiver-/151180553103?pt=Receivers_Tuners&hash=item2333102b8f

it came with all accessories in flawless condition. If you paid more than $1k I think you should reconsider...
post #131 of 154
yes a4l is an authorized dealer. Was just under $1000. They say they are going to do an exchange. Just waiting on the paperwork.

Well, it's been almost a year since I bought this AVR and I'm still loving it. Question though, has anyone been successful in running a full 11.2 setup off it? I know I'll have to run an external amp for at least 4 of the channels but provided that, will it run all 4 surround speakers AND front height AND front wide at the same time? I'm running 7.1 currently and have been curious to take that final step and introduce height/wide speakers into the mix to see if they really make a difference. However, I don't want to spend the money on the new equipment just to find out it's not possible. I'd really love to max this AVR out to its fullest capability or is it just going to be 9.2 and I'll have to decide whether to go with front height OR front wide. I've searched the many threads and forums but haven't found any info. I read through the manual and it shows up to 11 channels in one diagram but it only actually talks about how to set up for a 7.2 or 9.2 yet it gives the appearance that 11.2 is possible if you have all the right external equipment. And if it's going to be 9.2 only, should I go with height or wide? Thanks for any help.
post #133 of 154
Unfortunately no - the 1010 only supports max 9.2 channels. You need the 3010 to do 11 point something surround. I personally don't like 'made up' channels so stick with 7 channels myself.
post #134 of 154
That's a good point Avgass, there is hardly any content in 7.x let alone 9.x or 11.x. 90% of releases are still 5.x.
post #135 of 154
I use mine for 9.2 w/heights. I couldn't be more happy with It. I love having extra sound at the upper part of my screen. :-)

Hi Hyabusha,

I am going to be joining your exclusive club. I too have the Klipsch RF-7ii reference speaker set and I am upgrading from TX-NR809 to TX-NR1010. Do you have any tips or tricks?

Thank you.

Awesome Andy, your Klipsch will love the upgrade!

I would recommend getting banana plugs for the back of your receiver and surround speakers, and spade plugs for the back of your front speakers. ;-)

I don't know if anyone still cares about this receiver and unfortunately I found out about it too late - but Rakuten (formerly Buy.COM) had a special deal on the TX-NR1010 over this past weekend - a new one from OneCall for only US $889 with $110 instant rebate (normal price is $210 higher at US $1099).

Maybe they'll have another sale on it in the future.

I would've jumped on it (as I have a now-ancient TX-SR876 and only care about 5.1) but the Little Voice In My Head™ said "No 4K proofing? Wait 'til the 2014 models are out and have dropped in price next year."
post #141 of 154
That's a great find, but the 1010 does support 4K, from the manual pg. 110.
Quote:
Supported resolutions: [3840 × 2160 24/25/30 Hz], [4096 × 2160 24 Hz

Obviously it's limited by HDMI v1. That would be something worth waiting for if you haven't jumped in yet...
post #142 of 154
4k upscaling only which is of limited use as 4k tvs can do their own upscaling. No passthrough
post #143 of 154
I'm not worried about the abiltity to passthrough 4k right now - there is hardly any content for it. About the time I decide I want another receiver - 2 years or so there should be some. There is always the option of getting an Oppo blu-Ray player with dual hdmi's.

So how are you going to play all the '4K remastered' bluray? tongue.gif

I've just got my new TX-NR1010 and I am interested in knowing more about calibration.

While running through full calibration I see the option to choose speaker type as Digital Crossover.

What is it and how do I do the calibration successfully?

I've done the basic calibration with speakers set to normal and not that happy with the results. I tried my hand at Digital Crossover with the default crossover frequency of 3200 Hz. At the first calibration it came back with Error for my two fronts (Klipsch RF 7-ii). What is the correction I need to do?

Any insight into this part of calibration is greatly appreciated. Incidentally, I had a TX-NR809 that did not have this option for calibration and it worked.

Thank you.

Andy

Lol, the ones mastered in 4k and then down converted to 2k? Yep, think I will be fine.

Speaker type should be set to "Normal", unless you are bi-amping, in which case you would set them to "Bi-Amp". I believe the digital crossover setting is to set the crossover for speakers without a crossover built-in or removed -your RF-7 II's has a passive crossover built-in. Did you run all the Audyssey positions and did you use a mic stand?

Hi Tom,

Thanks so much for responding. Yes, I did the full calibration but with 3 different positions (I live in a relatively small one bedroom). So, here are the current settings:

Speakers - set to normal (as you've indicated).
I have never tried bi-amping, maybe that's the next one to try.
No, I did not use a mic stand. I have throw pillows piled to indicate listening height.

PS. I will ignore Digital Crossover for now, since my Klipsch towers will handle them.

Regards.

Andy

No need to Bi-Amp, it provides nothing of value other than a placebo effect. You need to use all available mic locations and a boom stand - the throw pillows are introducing unwanted results. Visit the Audyssey thread on this site and read the FAQ. Below are some links to a cheap mic stand that will work great for this application.
