20 Most Recent Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver Questions & Answers

Are you playing a TrueHD format disc? Just like DTS 5.1 or any other format if your disc isnt coded in TRUEHD then your not going to get it. DTS or other formats cannot be "converted" to TrueHD like the video portion of a standard def disc. At this point there arent alot of TrueHD discs out but be paitent, this may change. Or not, due to the fact there are other "lossless" formats that may be more widely adopted. Sort of like DTS and THX were when DVD first came out. Hope this helps.

This works for some Onkyo receivers Hold down the VCR buttton on the receiver (not remote) and press the main power/standby switch.

The only thing I can think of is that the microphone that detects speaker signals is in a position that blocks the sound from that speaker. When it's testing there should be no noise from anything or anyone.

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Please plug the cable box into a known good HDMI port on the receiver. Confirm that there are no issues with the cable or plugs. Thank you, CB

The chances are that you have selected an incorrect sound setting or not switched it on, for the HDMI you are using. With Onkyo receivers each connection will have it own settings for video and sound. You just need to look in the manual as to how to select the settings.

Hello, if you have the speaker set up microphone I suggest that you use it to calibrate the speakers and it will set the distance and delay. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. I suggest that you reset the receiver. With the receiver on press and hold vcr/dvr and then press on/standby. When the display shows clear let go. The receiver will shut down. Unplug for 30 seconds. Plug back in and turn on. Test audio. This procedure will bring the unit back to factory defaults. If this does not resolve your issue I suggest contacting Onkyo at 800-229-1687 option #3 so that we can troubleshoot with you. Thank you, Onkyo USA

It's often a problem with some of the soldering joints underneath the Digital Sound Processor (DSP). Need to be fixed at a service center.

Are you connected by HDMI? If so, your HDMI board may be faulty. I was having major drop outs with picture and sound until I got it replaced.

Hello, When you say Zone 2 doesn't show up do you mean that its not there at all, or is it just greyed out? I would suggest a reset of the unit it seems as though either way it could be a glitch. Thanks, FJD
