Low volume while on both DVD and watching Satellite channels.
I was connecting a Panasonic VCR to my 989. My 989 has been in to Onkyo for the Version 2 install.
I also have a Mitsibishi DLP TV, with Net Command.
Prior to today, I would always have the volume set to 40, where my max was 99. This was plenty loud enough.
I always have trouble with Net Command and think that I was connecting/reconnecting some cables while the receiver was on standby, but power was still on both the TV and 989.
Now my volume has to be at around 55-60 to get about the same volume I was getting at 40.
I have tried calibration, reviewing all the parameters, with absolutely no change from the above.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Garo

Be careful you placed all connectors in proper place, an make sure your ribbon cables are correct an matching pins. A common problem. Also you should put it all together because some power supplies shut down when everything not connected
Hello, I am sorry about your issue. If the cable is long from the receiver to the TV it may cause video issues. Please try a reset of the receiver by pressing and holding vcr/dvr and then on/standby. When display shows clear let go. The receiver will shut down. Turn back on and test. This procedure will take the receiver back to factory defaults. Thank you, CB
Connect the Panasonic to one of the AV inputs on the Onkyo. Use red white and yellow AV cables. Connect the output from the Panasonic to one of the five AV video inputs on the Onkyo (or use the DVD dedicated input in the Onkyo backpanel). I indicated this option using red arrows. You can use any of the AV inputs or the DVD input at the bottom. Just ensure you do not connect to an output at the back of the Onkyo.
Alternatively use component cables and optical audio input, as indicated using the blue arrows in picture below. Select source and listen surround from the Onkyo.
There are more options. In some case you may decide to connect the DVD video output to TV and the audio to the Onkyo.
Please connect optical out of the DVD recorder to the input of panasonic TV. Next connect TV's optical out to the input of Onkyo amplifier. connect speakers to the out put of Onkyo amplifier.
I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.
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.
Don't pass the video sample through the Onkio.. Use a second single RCA patch cord to go from vcr to TV... Use the same yellow out on the vcr that you're using now and send it directly to the yellow video input you're using on the TV..
Hope that's clear - I'm getting tired...
