Onkyo TX-NR1010 - Page 2

post #31 of 154
He said "the one benefit that I need"...quite possibly he does not need Ultra certification, more power, subEq, and vector linear shaping circuitry in the power supply...but he does need two independent HDMI outs. smile.gif Personally, I went to the 3010 for all those and the extras the 3010 has over the 1010...

So the 23.976 fps bug seems to have been fixed on the 717 and 818, but what about the 1010? I see no firmware note like with the other two. Did the 1010 have the issue in the first place, and if so, has it been fixed?
post #33 of 154
I asked about the 23.976 bug in relation to the TX-NR1010 on the Onkyo forums here:

http://forums.onkyousa.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2085&p=7006#p7006

The answer, as it stands, is NO, the TX-NR1010 does NOT have the 23.976 fps -> 24p bug. But I remain unconvinced considering that it uses the exact same video processor as the TX-NR818 which did have the issue. So I will push for a more definitive answer.

EDIT: I followed up and was told that its a definitive answer.

Onkyo has stopped issuing firmware updates via Ethernet connection due to all the problems that can and have happened with Ethernet updates. You have to download them from Onkyo and update via USB. The instructions on how to update are in the manual. I just updated to the latest version for the 3010 (1060-4103-0100-0000) over USB with no problems. The manual is slightly wrong in what will happen. It said it will say complete and I would need to turn off the AVR from the front panel of the AVR (and NOT the remote). In reality, the AVR turned itself off. When I turned it on, it finished processing the update and I was done.

Jumped on the bandwagon, bought the last refurb OneCall offers through eBay.

Going to replace an HT-R530 that barely functions (any surround mode yields no sound from the center nor satellites, so i have to run it in all-speakers mode) from their HTIB system I bought many years ago.

Hit enter by mistake. I was about to say that I have had this receiver for a week now and am very impressed with it. I downsized from an Integra DHC 80.3 powered by a pair of Parasound JC1's for the front speakers and a Parasound A51 Halo for the center and surrounds. It's fair to say my former set up is hard to beat, but the 1010 has filled in quite nicely. I am thrilled with it actually as I was expecting a considerable decline in performance and have been pleasantly surprised by how good it sounds.

I have a 4K question. I have the Oppo 103 and am running it through an Onkyo 1010. The set I have is the new LG 84LM9600 Ultra HD. When I change the resolution on the Oppo to 4K my screen goes black.
I am in HDMI 1 which I understand supports 4K input in the LG 4K unit. Not sure why I don't see a picture because it is a 4K set.

It doesn't seem to matter if I have the Onkyo AVR (which will also does 4K) on 4K or 1080p as far as the Oppo goes. I have re read the Oppo manual but there is very little on 4K.

As a test, have you tried running the Oppo directly to the LG tv rather than through the Onkyo?

I am going to try that today, thanks

But prefer using the Onkyo for all switching if I can, we'll see if I have to do that.

Is it possible the HDMI cable does not have enough bandwidth to support 4K?
post #43 of 154
The BEAST was delivered yesterday, going to get some speaker-wire from Fry's tonight.

Replacing an old Onkyo HTIB (a dying TX-530), still stuck with the 7.1 Onkyo speakers that came with it for now. Going to play more over the weekend smile.gif

The 2012 Onkyo's do not support 4K pass through. They can only upscale SD or HD inputs to 4K.

What do you guys use for DLNA server (Win7)? Any recommendation on the Android side (control)?

Bought the other day two Infinity 363's from Fry's @ $115/ea, they sound and look great, ran Odyssey late last night, will test more over the weekend.

Can you guys give some recommendations for center/sub/satellites? going to upgrade from the Onkyo speakers I've been using for years.

Thanks,

Maor

Just got my new 1010 this week and hooked up last night.
Question though I see the 12v triggers but how do you use them with the main zone? I want to turn my sub amp on. I am only running one zone and it is my main theatre room.

I ran the full Audyssey calibration process and I feel the volume as a whole is very low. I need to crank the receiver to 50+ volume in order to start enjoying the sound, below that it is very soft.

I wonder if I did the caliberation wrong... In the 1st step where it asks to set the sub to 75dbm, I turned the volume on the sub itself, not the receiver. Was that a misstep?

What is the average volume level you guys are setting the receiver to?

That's right, but I turned my volume on the sub till I got 80db. Then I ran all 7 calibration positions, set all speakers to 80Hz, then sound calibrated all speakers to 75db's. So my normal movie watching volume Is set to about -13. Then max volume set to -10.

Anyone here have height speakers activated for 9.2?

Thanks Hyabusha!

What should I set the volume on the sub to? It is the Onkyo sub (SKW-530) from their HTIB (HT-S780). Should I put it at max/min/middle?
post #51 of 154
I put my sub to 75 then came back and bumped it up in the settings after running audesse.The volume control can be set up 2 different ways. I use my spl meter to check my levels using the old video e disc. I found my setting of 78 on the volume set point gave me 75db on my speakers, and since I bumped my sub up it gives me 78 to 80 on me sub.

I dug up my old, never even used account on here just to post that after much searching, contemplating, and some serious wife convincing that I've got a new 1010 on the way right now and that's thanks to this thread and a few others. A big thanks to a small one elsewhere that mentioned if you called OneCall directly they'd sell you a new one for $999 shipped. I figured it didn't hurt to ask so I called and sure enough, the guy gave me that price. He said that's what their open box 1010 is selling for but he could sub a new one for that price if I wanted to order right then so I gave him an excited "yes." This will be a HUGE upgrade for me. I had the Onkyo 607 when it came out for awhile and then a year and a half ago got the Pioneer VSX-1021 but aside from a few of its newer, shiny features I never really enjoyed it as much so I've been recently looking at upgrading my whole system and came across the Onkyo 818 which, I'll be honest, was a good looking upgrade. Then I stumbled in here and saw the 1010 and figured if I could get it new for right at $1000 that was a steal, and if not, then I'd fall back on my original find and get the 818 for $800. I'm so glad that it worked out in my favor and I'm super excited to get it next week. I've got just some basic Polk Monitor 70's for my mains, CS2 center, R50's for rears, and a Definitive Supercube I right now but I'm also in the process of trying to acquire some Polk RTI A9's, CSI A6, and 2 pairs of FXI A6's to give me a 7.1 which I think would really benefit from the AVR upgrade until I can afford to step up to running external amps finally. Regardless, I just wanted to chime in and say thanks for the info and I can't wait to get this pretty beast up and running.

Oh, had no idea about that deal, I just bought an open box from them off eBay. It came well packaged and looks brand new to me, and the full warranty still applies to it, so I'm happy. Huge upgrade for me, coming from the TX-530 that barely works (surround back outs are dead, any surround DSP mode yields almost no sound from the center so can't hear dialogs, must operate in all-channel mode). Over the weekend I'm going to experiment more, probably re-do Audyssey as I don't think I've done it right (see prior posts).
post #54 of 154
Well that's good to hear in case the unit I get ends up being one of their open box units after all. As long as it comes with its full warranty I shouldn't worry too much. Glad to hear you're enjoying it and are in much better shape than before.

It should of been set when you first ran Audyssey. But mine's set a little above a quarter way.

So I connected a turntable to it via Phono In, the sound is aweful, very muted, barely any treble. Any idea what I can tweak to make it sound better? I set DSP to THX MUSIC.

Thanks

Check your connections again, and try In STEREO first.

That was spot-on! Stereo sounds good, but that is outputting only 2.1.

I initially selected THX Music and it is god-aweful, no depth, very flat.

I changed the DSP to Studio-Mix and now it outputs 7.1 and it sounds great!

I also discovered the Sound Program feature, enabled music enhancement and it sounds great!!

Thanks for the tip, I'm amazed how complex this receiver is, tons of menus and configurations.

Can you point me to information regarding the DSP modes?

This unit is incredible. I got it at a steal open box 800.00 at amazon, with full warranty (TX-NR1010) to replace a great sounding Pioneer Elite VSX-81TXV that did not support 3D and only had 2 hdmi outputs.


Also wanted to thank Hyabusha for the link to Onkyo's DSP's.
