Sorry about this tardy response... had to go to Napa
No, I haven't tried out the temp thang. I will soon and let you know. I will be surprised if it's above 100°F... it's really cool to the touch.

Anybody still thinking of buying the ONKYO TX SR875 they have them at Ebay for heck of a price. Wonder why the main online stores are having a problem stocking them.

We'll see how the 605 does on 4ohm speakers now then...

Sorry for the multiple post from the Integra 8.8 forum but I'm so excited, I had to share the good news!

WAAAHHHHOOOO! I just came from my Integra dealer after he got on the phone with his rep. My 8.8, which was ordered last Friday, (Monday was a Federal holiday ) shipped Wednesday PM from Carson, CA. I guess there is an Onkyo/Integra distribution facility there....it's a "burb" of Los Angeles and it figures that they would come in from Japan "off the boat" on the west coast. I have the tracking #. It'll arrive Tuesday 9/11 ......... I'll be able to track it coming. The light at the end of this 5 month long Sony ES, Denon, Onkyo, Integra decision tunnel is glowing very brightly!

Shipping weight is listed @ 60.0 lbs.

got my TX-NR905 yesterday and love the automatic room accoustic setup. I could never make it perfect with my TX-NR1000 and 5 speaker setup because the front are different from the rear and the center. Now it sounds great :-)
I use the AEROS MX-850 universal remote controll and I was wondering if anyone has an file because the new onkyo's are not in the remote database ?
Thank you.

Hey!
I'm running now using my HD-A2 (in UPDATE FIRMWARE mode) with no sound out. Temp has climed steadily from 27°C to 31°C, room temp is 20.1°C. BTW: I can only see Celsius, no Fahrenheit...

i have ps3, 360, & fios hd dvr cable box hdmi into receiver then out to tv. noone advised which 3 of my four devices wuld be best to go hdmi to receiver & which best direct to tv.

first i had cable box not through receiver but then figured the sd chans could make use of the 705's upconversiom plus my denon upconvert dvd player has same faroudja processor as the 705.

noone said whether i could use an hdmi switch to connect two hdmi devices to one hdmi in on the reciever or not & i didnt get to try it but im thinking it will be too many splits in the connction to tv.

one of my main questions now is why the p3 doesnt get sound from the tv while the 360 & cale box do. i like to use sound from both sometimes or have option for one or other though you have to turn on the receiver for video from that device anyway which could be problem for times when my wife wants to just turn on tv wih no surround sound for baby or somthing b not turn on receiver.

i did at last solve the black bars on all 4 sides problem. i had the 480 over ride set to off in cable box settings which makes evrything 1080i meaning 4:3 stuff has black bars on the right & left & when its done widescreen it will have blck bars on all 4 sides.

setting 4:3 over ride to stretch will fit the imge to screen0b till be 1080i, is what cable company recomends & is prob the best giving you upconversion i guess to 1080i & filling the screen but i pefer the 4:3 over ride set to 480p so you get some 720x480p action b hat ay can see what chans are broadcast in hd & which arent though the ransition between the 2 on screen pause flicker is annoying & fios groups some non hd in with the hd set of chans.

anyway again, most important question right now is prob just how i can get sound from ps3 on tv when its conncted to receiver via hdmi. im thinking just connect the audio portion of the a/v cable that comes with it. to tv in the hdmi/dvi slot that has the extra udio in case your using a vi to hdmi cable.

oh, you ain't alone.
I read manuals [US + JP] at least 5 times each!!! just want to get 905 to handshake with Tosh 62 by HDMI. even send many mails to seller, Onkyo JP and Onkyo US for help. sure, Tosh US too. FYR, seller and Onkyo JP are more willing to reply my mails! but can't get same enthusiasm from Onkyo US nor Tosh US!  now, both gears still reject handshaking, but I think problem comes from Tosh, not Onkyo. borrow Mits 3000 pj and Sony 32 LCD, both work good with 905!!! will try to borrow other displays to test.......

where can I get HDCP remover?

For anyone interested, just got an email from Crutchfield, and confirmed, that they have the Onkyo 875 in stock.

*sigh*

Still waiting on my 905 ...
post #7184 of 7304
Well, I received my 605 today... and I like it.

It does what I need it to do... now I'm just waiting on my Xbox360 and OPPO 981 to show up.

875 Jitter - Quick update and my move to ordering an 805

I have posted a couple times on the 875 thread where I had experienced "jitter" on a static SD video signal when run thru the 875 in various upconvertion modes. What I have confirmed to date...
1. Problem occured on two different 875 I demo'ed at home
2. Source was a Panasonic DVR (or HDDR as they call it) model DMR-E95H
3. Display was a Panasonic TH-PZ700 50 inch plasma
4. Connections tried analog composite, S-Video, and Component
5. Static test pattern used was the DVR generated TV Guide
6. Dynamic test pattern was DVD and SD Cable content
7. Probelm on both units a noisey/soft image, later to be identified as jitter where the fine details of the image were dancing around vertically by a pixal ot two. One potential suspect is that deinterlacing was not being properly addressed when going thru the 875. Confirmed that was not a souce or display problem by direct connecting between the DVR and TV. One additional problem noted with the 875 in the path... a rainbow interference pattern appeared on video with a great amount of diagonal closly spaced lines.... like the Moire pattern we used to get with old SD NTSC TV and hi-res laser disks.
8. Went to local Onkyo dealer here (Nebraska Furniture Mart) to talk to my salesman about ordering the 905 or an 805... LUCKY DAY, the Onkyo Rep was there.
9. They had an 875 there connected between a Sony Blue Ray player (model 300 something) and a Sony 52 LCD TV, model KDL-52XBR3. The connections were HDMI between the equipment. I played with the static menu and BD demo video... excellent as it should be for Hi Def via HDMI. Then a cabled up a good old fashion Composite cable and low and behold the jitter and rainbow effect appeared on the Sony XBR. The only differnce I noted was the static menu jitter was horizontal rather than vertical like I had seen at home. Looks like the 875 has a problem converting analog to digital.
10. The Onkyo Rep, named Matt was going to call the Onkyo engineers on this one. He had not seen it before and thought is was some type of beat pattern occurring in the A to D process or in the upconversion. A patch may be needed or there may be a "magic" combination of input and output rates. He is suppoesed to let my sales guy when he hears back.

I will keep you all posted... for now, I ordered an 805. I could not justify the 905 and assumed it would have the same jitter issues.
I had a chance to play with my Brothers 605 that is connected to his Panny TH-PZ700 58 plasma with Direct TV DVR box and Sony PS3. Looked awsome and no jitter problems. Hoping that the 805 is just as rock solid. Looking foward to more demo and test info after I get my 805.

Cheers,

Thanks for the update. I did experience jitter on my 905 when the DVR was set to output at 1080i. Please keep us posted!
post #7187 of 7304
I haven't checked in here in a while. I'm still enjoying my 605 and am finally making use of its HDMI, now that I have an HDMI-capable TV (Mitsubishi 57" DLP).
post #7188 of 7304
Jitter:
I have a silver ONKYO 875.
I have a Scientific Atlanta HD-DVR going in to it via HDMI and component.
I have a PS2 going in via composite connection.
I have a JVC HR-XVC15S DVD/VCR going in via component and composite.
EVERYTHING goes out 1080P via HDMI to my 1080P projector.
I have NEVER EVER experienced ANY jitter whatsoever through ANY of the connections.
I have NEVER had any moire, dancing pixels, rainbow, or noisy/soft image problems.
I DO HAVE some very expensive UPS and power line filters and conditioners.
HD DVR, DVD/VHS, ONKYO 875, and 1080P projector are all plugged in to the UPS and power line filters and conditioners.

Heat:
I use it for just about every purpose ONKYO intended it for so if a component is going to get hot then I have heated it up.
I noticed that the ONKYO 875 used to be pretty hot to the touch but over time I think it stays a LOT cooler to the touch then when I first started using it. Now it is just pretty warm.
I have about 200 hours on it.
post #7189 of 7304
looking for a new receiver....was checking out Pre/pros but the 605 seems like such an incredible deal. Why wouldnt I get it?

I have Outlaw amps so I just need to use the Pre-outs. My biggest need its upconversion, I run component video distribution through the house.
post #7190 of 7304
I had been following the 875 and 905 posts with interest because of their HQV video processors, but when I read in the ultimateavmag review that they don't compensate for 3/2 pull down (for 1080i), this was a deal breaker.

A 480i film source without 3/2 pull down compensation results in combing with motion. The same would hold true for a 1080i signal. Granted, the combing is much finer and maybe harder to see, but it's still not right.

I'm going with a Lumagen HDQ processor (found a new, overstock one for $1200 here) and an AV receiver without the Reon. The Lumagen does do proper 1080i deinterlacing and 3/2 pull down cadence detection for film sources and per-pixel deinterlacing for 1080i video sources. Plus, it has individual picture adjustments for each input source, which the Onkyo can't do. Total price will be about the same.

Just a thought for those more interested in the video processing prowess of these receivers. While a good deal for the money, they still don't replace a stand alone video processor.

By all accounts, the 605 is a great bang for the buck. I suggest you check out the dedicated forum thread for it.

605 has no preouts. You have to get the 705 for that.

the Yamaha 661 is the other competing bang for the buck with the onkyo 605 and considered better by most because the yama can do 7.1 chan.

for Onkyo though they are more money, your better off going 674, 705, 805 etc.

Has anyone else confirmed this?
Here is a quote from another ultimateavmag review concerning the Reon VX processor in the Samsung BD-P1200 bluray player: "This is undoubtedly helped by the best video processing I've yet seen in a Blu-ray player. Credit the Silicon Optix REON chip here. It scored good, at a minimum, on all of my standard video processing tests, and excellent on many of them. The 480i-to-1080p (HDMI) conversion was superb, and 1080i-to-1080p deinterlacing was outstanding as well, with full recognition of 3/2 pulldown. The latter is less important with a Blu-ray player than in a display, since few BDs are mastered in 1080i. But the REON chip is certainly doing everything you could ask of it. And while most of the source material I used in this evaluation was high-definition from Blu-ray Discs, the Samsung also proved to be an excellent upconverting playerwhich was no surprise in view of its first-class video processing. "

I believe Onkyo, Integra, and Samsung are probably using the same Reon VX chip. While the Onkyo 875 does not have a manual FILM mode, the Onkyo 905 and Integra DTR 8.8 do. Perhaps this makes difference. I have never seen another report where HQV has failed this, but maybe I missed it.

post #7195 of 7304
Very puzzling, indeed. If the 875 review is accurate, what is wrong with Onkyo's configuration of this chip? Would it really be crippled in the 875, but be fully functional in the 905?

Yes ebay has the 875 as of today. A ton of them. I guess vendors are finally receiving them. There is even 2 of them that are used on ebay...can you believe that?

Showing my ignorance, but what is a "Jitter"...My friend got an 875 and when we were watching the game last night, the sound would go off and on...Video was fine, just the sound...She has a wd73833, 875, DirecTv HDDVR & PS3...We didn't notice it while watching a movie, only during the game (Go Cowboys!)...

everything is through the HDMI in & out and we double checked the connections and all seems to be fine...This thing gets very hot...Is that normal?

When buying from eBay, be VERY CAREFUL that the warranty will be honored by Onkyo and that the "dealer" is accepted by Onkyo as an "authorized Onkyo dealer". If in doubt, the warranty dept. can be reached at 1-201-785-2600 to verify if a dealer is "authorized" and if the warranty will be valid.

This is a link to "authorized" Onkyo internet dealers.
