  1. System Setup and Connection
    Something has change in my setup as it does not behave as before When I watch movies, it comes from my plex server to my Apple TV to my receiver (TX-NR709) Before when a movie was in 5.1, It would show on my receiver (most of the time) as Doby D. Now I see multichannel all the time setup on...
  2. DIY Repair and Maintenance
    Lately, my Onkyo started to mis-behave. When I turn it on in the morning I see video on my TV but no audio, I have to power it off and on 2 or 3 times before the audio comes on. I know it is OK when i hear a second click (they still have mechanical relay in there?)

    I'm considering turning off the "OSD" on my Onkyo TX-NR709. I know it can be done by pushing a couple buttons on the remote. I read it somewhere, maybe on AVScience Forums, just can't remember.The reason is because even though you set the receiver to "Through", which is the recommended setting...

    A4L has this unit for $399 as a refurb. This seems like an outstanding value. I am going to replace my old Yamaha with a newer unit and want something with Audyssey and pre-outs. This looks hard to beat and their protection plans are reasonably priced, but I am not familiar with the warranty...

    Just sold my Anthem AVM 20 on ebay and will probably be getting a 709. A few questions, please: Anyone have any experience with buying Factory Reconditioned from Accessories4less? I'm planning on using my 7 channels of external amps (Anthem+Parasound). Will I be able to do anything with the...
  6. System Setup and Connection
    Fresh out of the box. Power on, HDMI light blinks a couple times, system turns off. Blu-Ray --> Receiver --> TV I sometimes see something very briefly about "HDMI Startup" but it's on screen for about 1/2 a second and now I'm not even seeing it any more. I sometimes see Onkyo on my...

    Have this amp hooked up in a 5.1 setup. My satellites are Martin Logan MLT 2 and the sub is a Klipsch 12 reference sub! With all I that said I have to crank it way up to 60 to get decent sound! Is this normal? What listen mode should i use?

    I know this is not the way to do things but this it what I have at hand. I need to learn and without a forum like this. "Thank God" We would not be able to move forward.
  9. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I have been wondering lately after reading so many different threads and hearing different recommendations from the helpful people of home theater shack. What is (in your opinion) the best speaker/sub combination using the Onkyo TX-NR709 as the receiver. I noticed a lot of people have the 709 or...

    Is this the infamous HDMI handshake issue I have been hearing about? Because recently my receiver just started dropping signals then immediately picking them back up. Is my model defective or is this just something we all have to grin and bear with?

    Hello all, I was planning on purchasing the Onkyo tx-nr709, but am feeling just a little uneasy about all of the bad stories I have heard about Onkyo. I know this is the internet and everything should be taken with a grain of salt, but I figured why not inquire anyway? Which receiver would you...
  12. System Setup and Connection
    So I ordered my speakers, the receiver, and all the cables for my set up. I'm sorry about creating another thread asking questions that are probably simple, but I was wondering how much I could turn up my speakers before any issues begin to arise. Or if the receiver is powerful enough so there...
  13. System Setup and Connection
    I just bought an Onkyo TX-NR709 on boxing day (the lower the price by 400$:sn:) connected everything up and everything was OK. On the next day, I had no signal message displayed on the TV. I thought I had a bad HDMI, replaced it and it was fine... well for a couple of days. hen it started...
