Onkyo TX-NR905 Firmware updates

Do you recommend to upgrade the firmware from 1.01 to 1.08 on the Onkyo TX-NR905? Onkyo said to upgrade only if I am having issues with the unit. Also what improvement will the new firmware update have on the receiver?

What country did these units come from? Video specs are different in various places in the world. NZ uses a format called "PAL", then there is "SECAM", used in some parts of Europe, (most notably France) and then there is NTSC, used in Japan, US and S. Aisia. Also, I need to know you video source and format...accordianman

The problem is not with the inputs. This unit is in protect because a problem has been detected in the output section. Try disconnecting the speaker wires and turning it on. If the unit remains on, there is a short in one of the speaker wires. If the unit still shuts down, there is an internal problem that will require repair. It sounds like this is a new piece. If so, it should be covered under warranty.

Keep us posted,

The DSP HDMI board is not accessible anymore .
ONKYO has this problem for some time now

DISPLAY STAYS WITH THE ONKYO DISPLAY AND THATS IT


The video card to your Onkyo is OK, as it displays the Onkyo Logo. Contact the authorized service center for Onkyo. A firmware update is necessary. With a Corrupted firmware, this kind of display effects can occur. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Semantics maybe, but sources are INputs. OUTputs are speakers, audio to other devices.

A DVD is always an INPUT.

So what's different? IOW, how are the DVD and Projector (Really? It uses a video OUTput) connected for audio? Have you looked at the manuals? Digital sources must be assigned, for example.

I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:

I would write them via email here:

However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:

(seems you may have to assign the digital input)

http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/QuickHookup/TX-SR606_QSS_En_A.pdf?CFID=918117&CFTOKEN=40624545&jsessionid=f0306ea8a0d68bb60a49102e3e5510576756


Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.

Thanks for using FixYa!

No sound from front channels under all sound modes. All wiring looks to be in tact.


Check to see if the speakers "A" are selected.
Look in the upper left corner of the display screen for something that says a or b. Let me know what it says.
See the manual here @ page 11 box 3 for more info.

Hello, There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly  recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.

Onkyo tx-nr801 net tune setup help


Below is the sequence that I made it work

1. download the latest firmware for tx-nr801 and net-tune central software at Onkyo website as shown below:
http://www.intl.onkyo.com/products/net-tune/download/index.html
Click on "User Identification" at the bottom
(You'll need the serial number shown at the back of TX-NR801
to download it)

2. disable firewall in your PC or notebook and start
updating the firmware for tx-nr801
If firewall can't be disable, you probably can't go through this.
This step takes about 30 min.

(There is a document showing how to do this with the download)

3. keep disabling firewall in your PC (notebook) and install net-tune central (there is similar document describing the procedure too)

4. By pressing Net-Audio on remote controller (it can switch between mServer and iRadio fucntions if you keep pressing this button)
