only if it works with no issues... For $200, there's gotta be some issues...

I already have an 806 and not sure what I would do with an 805. Not sure what the differences are. I have read the 805 may be slightly more powerful.

Hi Jon S,

Thank you so much for this...

I contacted Onkyo via e-mail and after another e-mail exchnage to sign their form, Onkyo support mailed out a Firmware Update CD, Fiber Optic Cable and Instructions.

Updated DSP Firmware to the following without issue:

DSP1: SR8051 - 12116A
DSP2: SR8052 - 07518A
DSP3: SR8053 - 07820B

So has anyone had luck ripping the wav off the new DSP update disk so that it can be posted for others?

My cd never came... I'll call again tomorrow but in the meanwhile I'm switching to multichannel and let the player do the decoding just to be on the safe side. Has anyone heard of any bluray players with such decoding issues?

I haven't heard of any players with the bomb issue. It seems to be just a problem for units (AVRs) that decode bitstreamed DTSMA data.

Why switch to multichannel? Can your player not send decoded hi-res audio (LPCM) via HDMI?

I should have been more specific. My player does decode hi-res audio. The 805 displays it as "multich", hence my statement above.

My apologies, I thought since this was an 805 thread everyone was familiar with the related terminology...

Hey guys...I just posted my perfect condition 805 (with box and remote and all that) on the classifieds here on AVS

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/vbcla...do=ad&id=17216

I just went off of prices i'd been seeing on ebay. If it's too high, please make me an offer.

Thanks!

The 805 is still one heck of a Receiver.
post #22390 of 22868
Anyone figure out a way to make a copy of the recent DSP update available? I'm an Integra DTC 9.8 owner experiencing the DTS bomb problem on SW IV and can't get an Integra CSR on the line who understands the issue

I'm pretty sure the DSP update for your 805s will work on my unit. At least the prior DSP update applied to both units. I'd appreciate any help on this
post #22391 of 22868
My HDMI output is broke would love it if someone knew how to get a decently cheap replacement of the HDMI board (I guess the entire board needs replaced, so Ive been told)

Do you think its worth scouring for the part, or just sell it to someone who doesn't need the HDMI out, and pick up something like a denon 2112? Wonder how sonically those would compare...... I have the pioneer fs 51 speaker system. (6 ohms)

No argument there (at least not from anyway). Good to see you're still kickin', Joe!
post #22393 of 22868
Many thanks to LAugsbach for his help with the 805's DSP update. The update worked just fine on my Integra DTC 9.8!

Once again, this forum has proven itself as an invaluable resourse, and the kindness displayed by help from other members is always uplifting
post #22394 of 22868
Hi there,

Anyone willing to share the new DSP update for the 805?
It's very hard to get it on Portugal and already done the previous one without problems.

Thanks for any help.

I recieved the update CD from Onkyo after contacting them through thier support page. I registered my 805 long ago but you will have to register your AVR and sign a "New Firmware Release" document to recieve the "official" upgrade CD. For the members that are having a difficult time working with Onkyo, I have ripped the track from my CD using Windows Media Player and uploaded the file to my web-site. I have an old computer running XP and no other burning software...I am unsure if this file is going help.

Below is a copy of the e-mail I received from Onkyo support:

"The DTS Master Firmware update will eliminate the popping noise that is heard during some movies using BLU-RAY and HD-DVD discs using some Onkyo/Integra receivers. (TX-SR605, TX-SR705, TX-SR805, TX-SR875, TX-NR905, PR-SC885P, DTR-5.8, DTR-6.8, DTR-7.8, DTR-8.8 & DTC-9.8) Where to register and be linked to the firmware download: Please register your receiver from our www.onkyousa.com website under support and product registration at the bottom of the page where it states "continue without registering” (All customers will have to have their Onkyo products registered before they will be able to obtain future firmware updates)

To obtain the DTS Master Firmware update, you can have the update done at an authorized service center, or can do it yourself after registering the unit on our website or we can send the disc to customers who are unable to download the firmware update from our website only after registering their unit. You will also need to complete and return a FIRMWARE UPDATE RELEASE form to accept full liability if you opt to self-perform this update. You can either send the completed form via fax (201) 934-7823 ATTN: PRODUCT SUPPORT or as a pdf. file to onkyoadmin@us.onkyo.com"


I haven't tested this file other than playing the track on my computer and comparing the file size to the CD. Please use this file at your own risk and I recommend contacting Onkyo through their web-site, e-mail at onkyoadmin@us.onkyo.com or by phone at: 800-229-1687 (Integra at: 800-225-1946).

Here is the link to the file:

http://www.nitarosemassage.com/Onkyo DSP Update.wma

The file size is 1,734KB and is 1:03 long.

Here are the instructions:

http://www.nitarosemassage.com/DSP s...05-805-875.pdf

The new DSP values are as follows:

DSP1: SR8051 - 12116A
DSP2: SR8052 - 07518A
DSP3: SR8053 - 07820B

Does doing this update affect any other setting on the 805 (do you have to reset everything all over again)?

Well I'm not going to bother then. I installed the original DSP update from a few years back and have not heard any issues since.

What discs was this a problem?

If you play back Star Wars IV on Bluray, skipping to chapter 16 may bring a loud bang on the speakers (the dreaded DTS HD Master bomb again). If you try this, make sure you lower the volume to a whisper, as the bang may damage your speakers at normal volume. The bang is caused by a bug in the DSP which has to be updated. The update was just released by Onkyo. You must contact them to have them send you an update disc.
post #22400 of 22868
On a side note, I have heard that "Eat, Pray, Love" and "How to Train Your Dragon" are also affected by the bug but I was not able to confirm it.

Thanks for the WMA, it works perfectly after writing for an audio cd.

Woah! If I hit the hypertext on a Mac it starts playing like an audio file right there in Safari! I expected something other than just a download, but not that... 'course I'm old (that's my excuse and I'm using it every day)

Did you call Onkyo on this? When i called over a year ago they said that I had to go to a repair center. I kindly informed them that it was such an easy swap that anyone with any form of iq over 47 could do it without issue. The lady was not amused. I was quoted a price of 350 to fix it... so it's not worth it. I've only seen one board on ebay (sadly the auction ended one week before mine went out) and it went for around $50. I'd try to either buy a new receiver or find a cheap 805 with a display issue that someone is getting rid of. Who knows, maybe onkyo will actually sell the part now as opposed to being dbags about it.

I would upgrade the DSP for the DTS issues...your main FW is very close to the current 1.08.
post #22409 of 22868
Found a new prob w/ my 805. Maybe I never noticed it till now but the balance is biased to the right side whenever I use the receivers DAC to listen to music. Vocals sound more like its coming from the right side; sounds more noticeable with headphones. Source is mp3 from the computer through SPDIF and playing a CD on my PS3 through HDMI. However, when playing through Multich (not using DAC), the sound is balanced, so I dont think its a problem with the amp circuitry, so it has to be related to the DAC or DSP. Anyone else have an issue like this?

Look at the TX-SR806 owners thread, last pages and you may find a way to fix it. I think bad caps are common to both of these receivers.
