Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver
I just had Dish Network ( AT&T) install a new High Def receiver. I have all my components in a hallway closet and needed a IR/UHF Pro remote from Dish to communicate with my components through the wall / door.
I have everything working through HDMI connections, the picture looks great, all speakers working fine, but I cannot control the volume of the TV with the IR/UHF remote. I have to physically walk over to the ONKYO and turn volume up or down.
Dish provided me with the following codes without success..
1642 / 1660 / 1662 / 1678
Any additional codes that you are aware of that I can try?
Hello, sorry but we do not have any additional codes. Thank you, Onkyo USA

What I think I did and how I fixed it!
FACTORY RESET ON EVERYTHING!
All you have to do is to do a factory reset on everything, but I thing mostly on your 605, but I would do it on the TV as well. I think what had happened is after I set everything up for the first time, it worked great. As the days when on I started to play with all of the futures the 605 and the TV had to offer. I was turning them on and off to see what everything did. What I think I did was, I turned on something in the 605 that the TV did not know how to cope with. If I had to guess, I think it is the Lip-sink feature (Spelling?) in the 605.
Anyway disconnect everything, look in your manuals of the TV and the 605 to see how to do the factory reset on both. Then turn your TV on. After it does it’s start up for the first time (again), start connecting the 605.
It has been working great for me after I did this. Do not count on help from the people you bought it from or the people who made it. This stuff is so new they do not really know how to fix it.

Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.

I got an Onkyo RC-717M remote control. It is the remote that comes with the Onkyo TX-SR706 receiver. It is a learning remote. When i entered the cde for the Samsung Blu-Ray it did the same thing as the other remotes I got from Onkyo, the pause, next / previous track buttons wouldn't work for the Samsung BD-P3600. I used the learning function of the new remote and programmed it to work. It works ok now but it sure was a hassle to get it done. In fairness i should have called Onkyo support but their support hours don't match my schedule.
