So Jon S the disk I got from Onkyo is for the Star Wars dts bomb,Ive had no luck Onkyo contacting me about the disk they sent me without me requesting it.My disk says its for the 705-805 the 805 is what I have the disk came with a toslink cable,did it fix the bomb for you? Also is there a fix for my Onkyo pro 5507 pre-pro? thanks

Levels and distance are untouched. You'll see they are unchanged in the OSD menu.
I don't much like the Audyssey curve for music, so I use analog inputs with other bass management.

It's been done before, albeit not as an ISO. The WAV file was ripped off the CD and posted for other to download and burn onto their own CDs (similar to the old process of ripping WAVs off of a CD for conversion to MP3s). It would be much appreciated if someone could do that with the new DTS-bomb DSP fix as a community service.

I can rip it as a WAV file, but I've never uploaded anything before, what is the best and easiest method to do so?

Stephanie, bless your heart, you are a good woman!!

The 805 continues to be a great receiver. I own one and could not be happier. However, I would not buy used for two reasons:
1. The price is worth it, but with no factory warranty and not knowing the history of the previous owner(s) I would not want to risk it.
2. For around the same price or a bit more, you can get a new receiver comparable in features and performance.

Hope this helps. Please write to my wife and tell her two subwoofers would make me very happy...

Helllo,

i'm a kind of a newbee with the Onkyo TX-SR805. I've seen al lot of treads but i can't find a link for upgrading the firmware and dsp. The firmware is still 1.04. Futher i'm curious how to get the internal fans running, it's almost unbelievable that the won't kickin with the heat generated by the receiver.

Thanks in advance !

Don't hold your breath waiting for the internal fans to come on....there aren't any! I have an external fan drawing heat away sitting on top of the case vents.

thanks for the quick reply... but i realy see the fan's on both sides of the receiver but they aren't turning. I've found a post somewhere that they will turn on when the receiver is about 95 degrees ! hmm i quess the receiver is melting already at that moment, so i hope that someone has found a way to trick these.
post #22360 of 22868
The fans turn on when the amp section is overheating (which would be extremely rare)... It does not sense any heat from the HDMI boards.

If you have the DSP and FW zip files, then all the instructions are included there. If you don't have them, PM me with an external email and I can send them to you. They top out at about 5.7Mb in total.

HI Guys,

Was wondering if anyone could tell me if the 805 has pre-amp outputs? Thanks.

golffnutt,

Correct, there are enough outputs for 5.1 or 7.1 pre-out. Page 13, point 28 of the manual.

The usual way is to upload it to RapidShare or a Google Docs account and share the link.

That's partially true. If he is at 1.04, then his MainUpdate mode is probably at 1.00 which means he needs a jig or dongle. A full set of information on everything related to the update, including instructions, files, etc, can be downloaded from my Google account as an ISO image. It is much larger than 5.7MB though.

If you are in need of a dongle, please see this post:

I have a 805 upgraded with the fix to the original DTS bomb issue, and am seeing the issue again with Star Wars Blu-Ray discs.
Did anybody (Jon S?) receive a new firmware update from Onkyo that they can share, or are we still waiting for them to acknowledge the issue/post a patch?
Thanks.

Onkyo did aknowledge it. You can request a fix (CD only) by calling their 800 number or wait until one of us uploads it. Mine should be in by Wed. according to Onkyo.

Thanks.

Onkyo finally acknowledged the issue this month and relased an updated firmware patch for the 705/805/875/905 receivers. The new DTS update is an audio CD which cannot be converted to an image (IMG) file. The previous DTS update was a .wav file which could be easily copied.

You will have to contact Onkyo for the update CD, they will not post the update online as they did not expect many people to have this problem... I don't know why they think that.

sorry for late reply... The disc I received had 705/805/875/905 written on it. I applied it but did not really test it since a 906 is now my primary amp. I do not know if the patch works on the 5507....

Hmmz.. checked the verions don't look good , i need the dongle.
I don't know if i want risk this, i've never heard the DTS bomb *knocking on wood* what other advantages brings it when i upgrade to a newer version ?

The xx6 and xx6 series have a bug which causes an extremely loud boom when playing back this particular disc. Onkyo has not resolved this issue and it appears nothing has been done about it since it appeared last September.
3. Age... the unit is already four generations old, Onkyo is now at the xx9 series which will probably be replaced this summer or fall with the 10? series...

My Onkyo 876 does NOT have this issue? Am I just lucky or was this star wars bomb issue just related to the 705/805/875/905 units?

Are you letting the player decode the signal? If the display shows multi, then the player is decoding the signal... If it says DTS HD Master, then the AVR is decoding it.

My 905/906 both have the issue. It could be that there was a DSP update in the prod run, but not sure. My 906 was one of the first sold in the U.S..

The 876 is doing the decoding for sure.

Can you play back Star Wars IV: A New Hope and skip to chapter 16... That brought up the DTS bomb on my 906...

And turn your volume down so it doesn't blow your speakers apart....

The main advantage of the new firmware version (1.08) is much faster signal lock on time when switching sources, and maybe channels depending on your equipment. On the older firmwares it could take 1-2 seconds to lock onto the audio leaving a large silent period. With 1.08 it is much faster.

There is an excellent condition 805 locally here on CL for $200.00. Is that a good deal?
