Connected Emotiva mps1 power amp to Onkyo 875 and cannot control volume with master volume control knob, although can do so with Harmony controler.

    havve previously connected 7 preout cables from Onkyo to 7 inputs to Emotiva without success. The Onkyo does have multichannel preouts. so that it supposedly can be used as a preprocessor. Best, Emmanuel.

  • nolivivit May 02, 2008

    There are actually eight preouts on the Onkyo and seven of these are attached to the seven input channels of the Emotiva and it sounds great, but I just cannot control the volumes with the master volume control. When the Onkyo is used srictly as a receiver without any conection to the Emotiva, the master volume control functions normally. What I don't understand is how the Harmony controller can control the volume when the Onkyo is used as a preprocessor. Thanks for your thoughts and advice. Emmanuel.

In order for this to work as you expect, you must connect the amp to a pre-amp out jack on the receiver. I don't think that the 875 has that option. If you are connected to the tape out, that is a fixed line level output that by passes the volume control.

    If you want to connect amplifier anduse the AV receiver solely as a preamp, connect the ampto the PRE OUT jacks, and connect all speakers and the subwoofer to the power amplifier. If you have a powered
    subwoofer, connect it to the AV receiver’s PRE OUT
    SUBWOOFER jack.

    Check this as well

    • Speaker cables may have come undone. Turn off your system and check the cables, and tighten the amplifier and speaker binding posts.
    • Damaged audio cable.
    • The preamplifier volume level is low for the channels concerned. Recheck the preamplifier calibration procedure.
    • A preamplifier Mute switch may be on, or an external processor loop or a tape monitor loop is engaged.
    • Check that your preamplifier or source is running the correct surround sound mode. Maybe it is set for 2-channel stereo when you were expecting 5.1 surround sound.
    • Check in case any missing channels have been turned off in a preamplifier setup menu. For example, the center amplifier channel will not receive a signal if the preamplifier has been set to “Phantom.”
    • The Auto/on/off switch on the MPS-1 might be in the off position.

    Here is the link for the amps manual: emotiva

    Do a hard reset to the system, shut the power down leave it turned off for an hour this will remove all the static power from the components and then the master volume control can be used in a normal state.

Model DR-S2.0. Why doesn't it respond to remotes?


If your receiver does not respond to the original remote, the remote may have failed.

If your receiver does not respond to your Harmony remote, the remote may not have been programmed or may have "forgotten" what to do.

Another possibility is that the infrared receiver has failed

Cleaning the contacts may help. The volume knob should pull off. Once its off use a non-flammable contact cleaning spray to clean the contacts behind the knob.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead

My onkyo tx-8222 suddenly stopped amplifying on both speakers and headphones. I can hear music faintly with the volume at max (just the pre-amp?). Time for a new amp?


Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Mitsubishi M-VR900 remote


Harmony by Logitech; they have models ranging from 70-400 based on your needs. They are 100% programmable, meaning any function your unit has, it will duplicate. PC software is very user friendly. You can set this remote to control up to 14 different devices and one button control. They even pass the Wife/Mother, & in-Law tests.. They have a substantial Database of products on file so you don't have to have your original remote. If you have problems while programming, they will actually answer their phones 14 hours a day. Why do I like these so much? Price/Performance/User friendly & I program all remotes from Universal to Crestron. Hope this helps. If you have any questions, reply & I will answer for you & help any way I can.

two 8 ohm speakers in parallel is 4 ohms.
if series 16 ohms.a high resistance will just produce less power.
too low a number can activate the speaker protect,or blow the amp.
radio shack sell wall mounted speaker controls,but 5 watt max.
the best thing is to run 2 amplifiers.one for in ,2 for out
speaker a and b on the amp parallel the speakers.
if you run 2 sets of 4ohm speakers,the amplifier load will be 2 ohms,and overheat the amp.4 8 ohm speakers,gives a 4 ohm load

No HDMI Output


My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

Problem:
ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

Symptom:
I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

Solution:
1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.
