    Just got a LG 55'' LED 3D TV (lg 55lm4600) at Costco and hooked it up but the color is all a shade of pink/magenta but when I put a test image from the setting it looks fine as does the 2nd HDMI from my PC but the 1st HDMI coming from my Onkyo S5400 from my Directv comes with that pink and...

    I'm trying to decide between the 5400 & the 5500. Originally, I was going to go separate components, but it's hard to justify my dream pieces at $800 (Denon 2113ci & Energy Classic 5.1) when I've been living off of the speakers from my Samsung LCD for the past four years. Going the HTIB route...

    Hi everybody, i came here to ask a question, and is about the HT Onkyo HT-S5400 model, there's one on amazon right now, for about 330$ the last time i checked and i thought , wow this looks awesome, a 7.1 system under the price of 1000$, which it can cost a Home Theater of that magnitude today...

    I'm looking at this receiver (HT-RC360) and the Onkyo HT-S5400. The advantage of the S5400 is that it comes with all of the speakers and subwoofer. They only differ in price by about $10. Common sense lends one to believe that the HT RC360 is obviously better than the receiver that comes with...

    I need some advise on choosing a 5.1 HTIB system. I am looking to spend around $400.00 and I am driving myself crazy trying to decide between Onkyo and Yamaha models. For the life of my I cannot make a decision between the Onkyo s3500, s5400, s5500 and the Yamaha YHT 597, 495 or 397. As the...

    My nephew bought a new Onkyo HT-S5400 and I'm helping him set it up but I need some help in using the Audyssey 2EQ... if I understand correctly Audyssey 2EQ Full Calibration will set crossovers and both speaker distances and levels so you shouldn't have to make any manual settings correct...

    Hi folks. Thanks for your time. I have recently installed 7.1 in my front room (Onkyo HT-s5400, I tried posting the manufacturers link but the spam filter says no). If possible I would like to have two ceiling speakers elsewhere in the house for home wide ambient music. This receiver does...

    Hey guys. I'll try to make this understandable but quick and to the point. I am creating a training room t work using 4 46" LED TVs. I had to be able to broadcast the same thing from a pc, bluray, etc on to either all 4 or just 2 at times. Now I've done this using 2 Onkyo HT5400S receivers and...

    Recently purchased the Onkyo ht-s5400 and have been happy, although I have found that while watching voice dominated television the center channel does not provide satisfactory sound. I find it tinny when it is the only speaker active. I have a large room and the main seating position is...

    Hi, I was listening to some music through my Onkyo HT-S5400 a few nights ago and it was working great, other then the usual burning smell coming from the sub box. A day later I tried to listen to music again and the subwoofer won't play any bass at all. The power light on the subwoofer shows up...
