Firmware update available for Onkyo TX SR805

Firmware update available for Onkyo TX SR805

Apparently this is a major upgrade and can only be done at an authorized service center (very few around the country) and not by download.
The apparent fixes are faster switching between surround modes and a fix to the DTS Master audio "bomb" problem with some BluRay DVDs that some people have reported and some other minor tweaks.

I have to ship mine to Ontario Canada (halfway across the country) Not sure if I want to do that.

You will have to contact Onkyo for more info.

Re: Firmware update available for Onkyo TX SR805

Well, after a bit of trial and error my firmware update went really well. The biggest improvement was the mode switching delay is now gone and it switches between surround modes within about one second of getting the signal.
Onkyo needs to make this firmware easier to install as its not a straight forward process. The DSP update was also very simple and gets rid of the so called DTS master audio "bomb" that some have reported.
