You didn't say if you were using their wireless "dongle" or an ethernet connection. If ethernet try to connect another device - laptop, blu-ray or etc to see if you're getting a good modem signal. You might try re-setting the ethernet connection on your 609.
I'm assuming your audio is working, Onkyo had a lot of trouble with their HDMI cards, for some reason the defect usually took out the audio and ability to connect to the web.
Onkyo had a recall on 609s and they will repair the defect, free of charge or shipping. (In a range of serial numbers that, unfortunately, I do not know.) I took mine to a local repair shop and they told me it was recalled. It was about a year out of warranty but they fixed it.

Onkyo TXNR-609 intermittently turning itself off
Hi, there is no need for entering any serial numbers for factory reset. For hard reset press and hold VCR/DVR botton then press ON/STANDBY,secound later on the display should say CLEAR . So now you receiver is back to factory settings. If that works great if not try Firmware update for your model ,and if that failes
try unpluging all your speakers ,and try connecting your USB,CAB/STA or what ever you want(speakers unplaged). Btw dont forget trying different cabels. Last if all dont help you should contact ONKYO Servise/dealship.Hope ti helped you with your problem .

Receiver will not turn on and is making a clicking sound TX-NR 609
This is the same problem i've had with my POS nr609. I will never buy Onkyo again.. Everyone warned me about the poor quality.. This thing worked for a year and a half, blew the amp., replaced and now another year and a half, f'd again. Save your time, buy a Denon or a Harmon Kardon. Better quality, same features..

Cant get tv audio through receiver directly (without satallite, Game, DVD connection)
If your TV doesn't support audio return channel (ARC, which is your TV audio routed back to the receiver through the same HDMI cable), you then need to connect your television audio-out to your Onkyo TV audio input, using a digital cable or an analog one according to the connections on the back of your TV. If you use a digital connection (optical or coaxial), make sure you have the proper digital port assigned to TV on the onkyo I/O assign menu/digital inputs.In case your TV does support ARC, you need to activate it in the Onkyo's hardware/HDMI setup menu, either by turning on HDMI control (tv or receiver control each other via cable), or by turning ARC on (you'd probably need to activate ARC on your TV as well).Hope this help,M G
Onkyo TXNR-807 eARC issues
If you're having trouble getting sound from your TV, there are a few things you can check to try and troubleshoot the issue.
First, double-check all the connections between your TV and receiver. Make sure they are secure and that you're using the correct inputs.
Next, take a look at your TV's settings. Make sure eARC is enabled and that the TV is outputting sound through the correct port.
If you're not sure how to do this, consult your TV's manual. Similarly, check your receiver's settings to make sure eARC is enabled and that it is set to the correct input.
Again, consult your receiver's manual if you're not sure how to do this. If you're still having trouble, try resetting your receiver. This can often fix audio issues.
Hopefully one of these tips will help you get the sound from your TV working properly.
