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:
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)

Hello Arthur, This unit does not have ARC because just as you said it does not have HDMI. Your only option is to use an optical cable from the TV to the receiver. Thanks, FJD

What Blu Ray to buy for ONKYO TX-NR801 for Dolby TrueHD, etc???

Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals.  The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV.  In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal.  Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo.  In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching.  This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV.  This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver.  That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.

TX-NR801 panel connection

Basic handtools should be available, as well as having soldering tools. No, I'm sorry, there are no schematics or drawings that show what and where the parts are due to the same cabinet being used for several different models and power ratings. Go ahead and spring for the tech info from the MFGR. Common sense and some mechanical aptitude would be what you need for a clean R&R.(removal and replacement)...accordianman

Rear left channel not working on Onkyo NR801

Sounds as if it's time for a shop visit, unless you want to try this yourself. The panel connection on the rear of the receiver, or the protection relay have apparently come loose from the circuit board. It happens sometimes when stress causes the cabling to pull on the back of the unit..accordianman
