Re: April firmware update for the Rz series. I did everything wrong and it updated over the network in just 3 tries. for some reason it would not 'see' the firmware update when i had it connected via cat6 ethernet to the router. as soon as i put the wifi network back on, it showed up. right after i made the usb firmware mentioned above by transistorious, i believe. i just clicked 'update' did not turn off cec or my pc either. i got an error message -7-83 and while i was looking up what the heck that meant i followed the lcd prompt to update which it did and went 100% again but only to give me an error message 7-82 ,again prompting me to update by pushing Enter. in the mean time i still had not found any hit for the onkyo error numbers and watched the rz720 shut off and come back on with a much brighter light and bold too, at over 80% and got to COMPLETE in no time. but, i had to get up to turn the thing off. pushed the on/off again and it came back on at the same setting i left it.
so even a total blunderer can do this one no usb needed, at first. i have a good wireless network though strong connections but i prefer to keep as many things wired for a variety of reasons and do not mind the clutter as much as many. onkyo did a good job making this easy and i had patience not to jump up and pull the cord right away. it provided the cue to push enter and forced me to update on screen i mean. all is working well still. not sure how i will benefit from this update. thanks , maybe someone else will be as lucky. only took a tad over 10min all in all for all those 3 tries to get the job done. took longer to make the unused usb or as long as. this is my 2nd onkyo in 12yrs and the last one is still great -just not 4k/ hdmi2. i loved it and do like audyssey over the lacking in personal tweak-ability for surround over atmos set ups. in my opinion , still not enough dolby vision /atmos around on streaming services. some for sure ,not enough in my taste range.
