Speaker Precautions
Placement
Input Signal Warning
• The speaker cabinets are made out of wood and are
therefore sensitive to extreme temperatures and
humidity, do not put them in locations subject to direct
sunlight or in humid places, such as near an air conditioner, humidifier, bathroom, or kitchen.
• Do not put water or other liquids close to the speakers.
If liquid is spilled over the speakers, the drive units
may be damaged.
• Speakers should only be placed on sturdy, flat surfaces
that are free from vibration. Putting them on uneven or
unstable surfaces, where they may fall and cause damage, will affect the sound quality.
• Subwoofer is designed to be used in the upright vertical position only. Do not use it in the horizontal or
tilted position.
• If the unit is used near a turntable, CD player or DVD
player, howling or slipping of sound may occur. To
prevent this, move the unit away from the turntable,
CD player or DVD player otherwise lower the unit’s
output level.
The speakers can handle the specified input power when
used for normal music reproduction. If any of the following signals are fed to them, even if the input power is
within the specified rating, excessive current may flow in
the speaker coils, causing burning or wire breakage:
1. Interstation noise from an untuned FM radio.
2. Sound from fast-forwarding a cassette tape.
3. High-pitched sounds generated by an oscillator, electronic musical instrument, and so on.
4. Amplifier oscillation.
5. Special test tones from audio test CDs and so on.
6. Thumps and clicks caused by connecting or disconnecting audio cables (Always turn off your amplifier
before connecting or disconnecting cables.)
7. Microphone feedback.
Using Close to a TV or Computer
TVs and computer monitors are magnetically sensitive
devices and as such are likely to suffer discoloration or
picture distortion when conventional speakers are placed
nearby. To prevent this, the SKF-540F and SKC-540C
feature internal magnetic shielding. In some situations,
however, discoloration may still be an issue, in which case
you should turn off your TV or monitor, wait 15 to 30
minutes, and then turn it back on again. This normally
activates the degaussing function, which neutralizes the
magnetic field, thereby removing any discoloration
effects. If discoloration problems persist, try moving the
speakers away from your TV or monitor. Note that discoloration can also be caused by a magnet or demagnetizing
tool that’s too close to your TV or monitor.

Notes:
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
receiver is subjected to bright light, such as direct sunlight or inverter-type fluorescent lights. Keep this in
mind when installing.
• If another remote controller of the same type is used in
the same room, or the AV receiver is installed close to
equipment that uses infrared rays, the remote controller may not work reliably.
• Don’t put anything on top of the remote controller,
such as a book or magazine, because a button may be
pressed continuously, thereby draining the batteries.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
receiver is installed in a rack behind colored glass
doors. Keep this in mind when installing.
• The remote controller will not work if there’s an obstacle between it and the AV receiver’s remote control
sensor.
Notes:
• If the remote controller doesn’t work reliably, try
replacing the batteries.
• Don’t mix new and old batteries or different types of
batteries.
• If you intend not to use the remote controller for a long
time, remove the batteries to prevent damage from
leakage or corrosion.
• Expired batteries should be removed as soon as possible to prevent damage from leakage or corrosion.

Connecting Your Speakers
Speaker Connection Precautions
Connecting Speaker Set A
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• You can connect speakers with an impedance of
8 ohms or higher. If you use speakers with a lower
impedance, and use the amplifier at high volume levels for a long period of time, the built-in protection
circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. In other
words, connect positive (+) terminals to only positive
(+) terminals, and negative (–) terminals to only negative (–) terminals. If you get them the wrong way
around, the sound will be out of phase and will sound
unnatural.
• Unnecessarily long, or very thin speaker cables may
affect the sound quality and should be avoided.
• Be careful not to short the
positive and negative wires.
Doing so may damage the AV
receiver.
• Don’t connect more than one
cable to each speaker terminal. Doing so may damage the
AV receiver.
• Don’t connect one speaker to several terminals.
Subwoofer

Notes:
• Outdoor FM antennas work best outside, but usable
results can sometimes be obtained when installed in an
attic or loft.
• For best results, install the outdoor FM antenna well
away from tall buildings, preferably with a clear line
of sight to your local FM transmitter.
• Outdoor antenna should be located away from possible noise sources, such as neon signs, busy roads, etc.
• For safety reasons, outdoor antenna should be situated
well away from power lines and other high-voltage
equipment.
• Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance
with local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
Outdoor AM antennas work best when installed horizontally outside, but good results can sometimes be obtained
indoors by mounting horizontally above a window. Note
that the AM loop antenna should be left connected.
Outdoor antenna must be grounded in accordance with
local regulations to prevent electrical shock hazards.
■ Using a TV/FM Antenna Splitter
It’s best not to use the same antenna for both FM and TV
reception, as this can cause interference problems. If circumstances demand it, use a TV/FM antenna splitter, as
shown.

Which Connections Should I Use?
The AV receiver supports several connection formats for compatibility with a wide range of AV equipment. The format
you choose will depend on the formats supported by your other components. Use the following sections as a guide.
For video components, such as a DVD player, you must make an audio connection and a video connection.
Video Connection Formats
Audio Connection Formats
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the AV receiver doesn’t convert between formats, so only
outputs of the same format as the input will output the
signal.
When choosing a connection format, bear in mind that
the AV receiver doesn’t convert between formats.
For example, audio signals connected to an OPTICAL or

Connecting Onkyo
Components
Step 1: Make sure that each Onkyo component is connected to the AV receiver with an analog audio cable (connection a in the hookup examples) (see pages 24 to 32).
Step 2: Make the
connection.
Step 3: If you’re using an MD, CDR, or HDD component, change the input Display (see page 35).
With
(Remote Interactive), you can use the following special functions:
■ Auto Power On/Standby
When you start playback on a component connected via
, if the AV receiver is on Standby, it will automatically
turn on and select that component as the input source. Similarly, when the AV receiver is set to Standby, all components connected via
will also go on Standby. This function will not work on components connected to an AC
OUTLET on the AV receiver.
■ Direct Change
When playback is started on a component connected via
, the AV receiver automatically selects that component
as the input source. If your DVD player is connected to the AV receiver’s multichannel DVD input, you’ll need to
press the [MULTI CH] button to hear all channels (see page 37), as the Direct Change
function only selects the
FRONT DVD IN jacks.
■ Remote Control
You can use the AV receiver’s remote controller to control your other
-capable Onkyo components, pointing the
remote controller at the AV receiver’s remote control sensor instead of the component. You must enter the appropriate remote control code first (page 59).
Notes:
• Use only
cables for
connections.
cables are supplied with Onkyo players (DVD,
CD, etc.).
• Some components have two
jacks. You can
connect either one to the AV receiver. The other
jack is for connecting additional
-capable
components.
• Connect only Onkyo components to
jacks.
Connecting other manufacturer’s components
may cause a malfunction.
• Some components may not support all
functions. Refer to the manuals supplied with your
other Onkyo components.

Testing the speakers
To test that all of the speakers are working properly, press the remote controller’s [TEST TONE] button. The
test tone will be output by each speaker in turn and the name of each speaker will appear on the display. To turn off
the test tone, press the [TEST TONE] button again.
• If the test tone is not produced by a speaker, or it’s produced by a speaker other than that shown on the display,
you may have wired the speakers incorrectly and you should check your connections (see page 19).
• Testing cannot be performed while speaker set B is on or a pair of headphones is connected.

To adjust the volume, use the MASTER VOLUME control, or the remote

The volume can be set to MIN, 1 through 79, or MAX. Since the AV receiver is
designed for home theater enjoyment, it has a wide volume range for precise adjustment.
To set the level of the subwoofer, use the OUTPUT LEVEL control.
Because our ears are less sensitive to very low bass sounds, there’s a temptation to set
the level of the subwoofer too high. As a rule of thumb, set the subwoofer level to what
you think is the optimal level, and then back it off slightly.

About the Listening Modes
The AV receiver’s listening modes can transform your
listening room into a movie theater or concert hall, with
high fidelity and stunning surround sound.
The illustration shows which speakers are active in
each listening mode with 7.1 channel speaker system.
Front left
Center
Front right
Surround
back left/ right
Surround right
Pure Audio (not North American models)
In this mode, the display and video circuitry are turned
off, minimizing possible noise sources for the ultimate in
high-fidelity reproduction. (As the video circuitry is
turned off, no video signals are output in this mode.)
Direct
In this mode, audio from the input source is output
directly with minimal processing, providing high-fidelity reproduction. All of the source’s audio channels are
output as they are.
Stereo
Sound is output by the front left and right speakers and
subwoofer.
Mono
Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
soundtrack, or use it with the foreign language
soundtracks recorded in the left and right channels of
some movies. It can also be used with DVDs or other
sources containing multiplexed audio, such as karaoke
DVDs.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic IIx expands any 2-channel source for
7.1-channel playback. It provides a very natural and
seamless surround-sound experience that fully envelops
the listener. As well as music and movies, video games
can also benefit from the dramatic spatial effects and
vivid imaging. If you’re not using any surround back
speakers, Dolby Pro Logic II will be used instead of
Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
•
PLIIx Movie
Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) movie (e.g., TV, DVD, VHS).
•
PLIIx Music
Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) music source (e.g., CD, radio, cassette,
TV, VHS, DVD).
•
PLIIx Game
Use this mode with video games, especially those that
bear the Dolby Pro Logic II logo.
48
Use this mode with DVDs that bear the
Dolby Digital logo, and Dolby Digital TV
broadcasts. This is the most common digital surroundsound format, and it’ll put you right in the middle of the
action, just like being in a movie theater or concert hall.
Dolby Digital EX
DTS+Dolby EX
Subwoofer
Surround left
Dolby Digital
These modes expand 5.1-channel Dolby
Digital and DTS sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. They’re especially suited to
Dolby Digital EX soundtracks that include
a matrix-encoded surround back channel. The additional
channel adds an extra dimension and provides an enveloping surround sound experience, perfect for rotating
and fly-by sound effects. Use them with DVDs that bear
the Dolby Digital or DTS logo.
Dolby Digital+PLIIx Music
DTS+PLIIx Music
These modes use the Pro Logic IIx Music
mode to expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital
and DTS sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. Use them with Dolby Digital or
DTS 5.1 music sources (e.g., DVD and Dolby Digital TV
broadcasts).
Dolby Digital+PLIIx Movie
DTS+PLIIx Movie
These modes use the Pro Logic IIx Movie
mode to expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital
and DTS sources for 7.1-channel playback. Use them with Dolby Digital and
DTS 5.1 movies (e.g., DVD and select digital TV broadcasts).
DTS
The DTS digital surround-sound format supports
up to 5.1 discrete channels and uses less compression for high-fidelity reproduction. Use it
with DVDs and CDs that bear the DTS logo.
DTS 96/24
This mode is for use with DTS 96/24
sources. This is high-resolution DTS with a
96 kHz sampling rate and 24-bit resolution, providing
superior fidelity. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTS
96/24 logo.
DTS-ES Discrete
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Discrete
soundtracks, which use a discrete surround
back channel for true 6.1/7.1-channel playback. The
seven totally separate audio channels provide better spatial imaging and 360-degree sound localization, perfect
for sounds that pan across the surround channels. Use it
with DVDs that bear the DTS-ES logo, especially those
with a DTS-ES Discrete soundtrack.
HT-S790_En.book Page 49 Friday, February 17, 2006 3:28 PM
Using the Listening Modes—Continued
DTS-ES Matrix
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Matrix
soundtracks, which use a matrix-encoded
back-channel for 6.1/7.1-channel playback. Use it with
DVDs that bear the DTS-ES logo, especially those with
a DTS-ES Matrix soundtrack.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
Mono Movie
This mode is suitable for old movies and other mono
sources. The center speaker outputs the sound as it is,
while reverb is applied to the sound output by the other
speakers, giving presence to even mono material.
DTS Neo:6
Orchestra
This mode expands any 2-channel source for 6.1-channel playback. It uses six full-bandwidth channels of
matrix decoding for matrix-encoded material, providing
a very natural and seamless surround sound experience
that fully envelops the listener.
Suitable for classical or operatic music, this mode
emphasizes the surround channels in order to widen the
stereo image, and simulates the natural reverberation of
a large hall.
•
Neo:6 Cinema
Unplugged
Use this mode with any stereo movie (e.g., TV, DVD,
VHS).
Suitable for acoustic instruments, vocals, and jazz, this
mode emphasizes the front stereo image, giving the
impression of being right in front of the stage.
•
Neo:6 Music
Use this mode with any stereo music source (e.g.,
CD, radio, cassette, TV, VHS, DVD).
Dolby Digital + Neo:6
DTS+Neo:6
This mode uses Neo:6 to expand 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS sources for
6.1/7.1-channel playback. Use it with
DVDs that bear the Dolby Digital or DTS
logo and feature a 5.1-channel soundtrack.
Neural Surround
(North American models only)
Neural Surround represents the latest advancement in
surround technology developed for music and is adopted
by XM Satellite Radio for digital radio broadcast of surround recordings and live events in surround sound.
Neural Surround employs psychoacoustic frequencydomain processing, which allows delivery of a more
detailed sound stage, with superior channel separation
and localization of audio elements. System playback is
scalable from 5.1 to 7.1 multichannel surround playback.
Studio-Mix
Suitable for rock or pop music, listening to music in this
mode creates a lively sound field with a powerful acoustic image, like being at a club or rock concert.
TV Logic
This mode adds realistic acoustics to TV shows produced in a TV studio, surround effects to the entire
sound, and clarity to voices.
All Ch Stereo
Ideal for background music, this mode fills the entire listening area with stereo sound from the front, surround,
and surround back speakers.
Full Mono
In this mode, all speakers output the same sound in
mono, so the sound you hear is the same regardless of
where you are within the listening room.

The Audio Adjust settings are explained below.
Input Channel Settings
■ Multiplex
This setting determines which channel is output from a
stereo multiplex source. Use it to select audio channels
or languages with multiplex sources, multilingual TV
broadcasts, and so on.
Main: The main channel is output (default).
Sub: The sub channel is output.
M/S: Both the main and sub channels are output.
■ Mono (2ch)
This setting determines which channel is output when
the Mono listening mode is used with a stereo source.
L+R: Both the left and right channels are output
(default).
L: Only the left channel is output.
R: Only the right channel is output.
PLII and PLIIx Music Mode Settings
These settings apply to only 2-channel (stereo) sources.
■ Panorama
With this setting, you can broaden the width of the front
stereo image when using the Pro Logic II Music or Pro
Logic IIx Music listening mode.
On: Panorama function on.
Off: Panorama function off (default).
■ Dimension
With this setting, you can move the sound field forward
or backward when using the Pro Logic II Music or Pro
Logic IIx Music listening mode. The default value is 3.
It can be adjusted from 0 to 6. Higher settings move the
sound field forward. Lower settings move it backward.
If the stereo image feels too wide, or there’s too much
surround sound, move the sound field forward to
improve the balance. Conversely, if the stereo image
feels like it’s in mono, or there’s not enough surround
sound, move it backward.
adjusts the front left, right, and center mix, allowing you
to adjust the weight of the center channel sound. It can
be adjusted from 0 to 7 (default value is 3).
DTS Neo:6 Music Mode Setting
■ Center Image
The DTS Neo:6 Music listening mode creates 6-channel
surround sound from 2-channel (stereo) sources. With
this setting, you can specify by how much the front left
and right channel output is attenuated in order to create
the center channel. It can be adjusted from 0 to 5 (default
value is 2). This setting has no effect if no center speaker
is connected.
When set to 0, the front left and right channel output is
attenuated by half (–6 dB), giving the impression that the
sound is located centrally. This setting works well when
the listening position is considerably off center. When
set to 5, the front left and right channels are not attenuated, maintaining the original stereo balance.
Dolby Digital EX Input Signal Setting
■ Dolby EX
This setting determines how Dolby Digital EX signals
are handled. This setting is unavailable if no surround
back speakers are connected or speaker set B is on.
Auto: If the source signal contains a Dolby Digital
EX flag, the Dolby Digital EX listening mode
is used (default).
Manual: You can select Pro Logic IIx Movie, Pro
Logic IIx Music, Dolby Digital, or Dolby
Digital EX.
Multichannel Subwoofer Setting
■ SW Sens
On some DVD players, the signal from the multichannel
subwoofer output is 15 dB higher than normal. You can
change the subwoofer sensitivity to match your DVD
player. Note that this setting only affects signals connected to the SUBWOOFER input jack of the multichannel DVD input.
You can select 0 dB (default), +5 dB, +10 dB, or +15 dB.
If you find that your subwoofer is too loud, try the
+10 dB or +15 dB setting.
■ Center Width
With this setting, you can adjust the width of the sound
from the center speaker when using the Pro Logic II
Music or Pro Logic IIx Music listening mode. Normally,
the center channel sound is output by only the center
speaker. (If you’re not using a center speaker, the center
channel sound will be distributed to the front left and
right speakers to create a phantom center). This setting

Speaker Distance
The speaker distance setting cannot be
changed while a pair of headphones is connected, speaker set B is on, or the multichannel input is being used.
To get the best from surround sound, it’s important that
the sound from each speaker reaches the listener at the
same time. To achieve this, you need to specify the distance from each speaker to the listening position.

• The Center and Subwoofer distances can be set up to
5 ft. (1.5 m) more or less than the Front distance. For
example, if the Front distance is set to 20 ft. (6 m), the
Center and Subwoofer distances can be set between 15
and 25 ft. (4.5 and 7.5 m).
• The Surround and Surround Back distances can be set
up to 5 ft. (1.5 m) more or 15 ft. (4.5 m) less than the
Front distance. For example, if the Front distance is set
to 20 ft. (6 m), the SurrRight, Surr Left, Surr Back R,
and Surr Back L distances can be set between 5 and 25
ft. (1.5 and 7.5 m).

Audio signals from the selected input
source are output by the TAPE OUT

You can listen to the source while
recording. The AV receiver’s VOLUME control has no effect on recording.
Recording Audio and Video from
Separate Sources
You can overdub audio onto your video recordings by
simultaneously recording audio and video from two separate sources. This is possible because only the audio
source is switched when an audio-only input source,
such as TAPE, TUNER, or CD, is selected, the video
source remains the same.
In the following example, audio from the CD player connected to the CD IN jacks, and video from the camcorder
connected to the VIDEO 3 INPUT VIDEO jack are
recorded by the VCR connected to the VIDEO 1 OUT
jacks.

Power
Can’t turn on the AV receiver
• Make sure that the power cord is plugged into the wall
outlet properly.
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait 5
seconds or more, then plug it in again.
The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned
on
• The amp protection circuit has been activated.
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord
and set the volume to maximum. If the AV receiver
stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the
power cord, and reconnect your speakers and input
sources. If the AV receiver turns off when you set the
volume to maximum, disconnect the power cord, and
contact your Onkyo dealer.
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet
• Make sure that the digital input source is selected
properly (page 35). Press the [DIGITAL INPUT] button repeatedly.
• Make sure the speker set A or B is on (page 5).

correct, and that the bare wire is in contact with metal
part of each speaker terminal (page 19)
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume. It can be set to MIN, 1 through 79,
or MAX (page 36). The AV receiver is designed for
home theater enjoyment and has a wide volume range
for precise adjustment.
• If the MUTING indicator is shown on the display,
press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 44).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the
PHONES jack, no sound is output by the speakers
(page 45).
• Check the digital audio output settings on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio format from a menu.
• If your turntable doesn’t have a phono preamp built-in,
you must connect one between it and the AV receiver.
If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must connect an MC head amp, or an MC transformer and a
phono preamp.
• Specify the speaker distances and adjust the individual
speaker levels (pages 52, 53).
• The input signal format is set to PCM or DTS. Set it to
Auto (page 56).
Only the front speakers produce sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
only the front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 54).
Only the center speaker produces sound
• If you use the Pro Logic IIx Movie, Pro Logic IIx
Music, or Pro Logic IIx Game listening mode with a
mono source, such as an AM radio station or mono TV
program, the sound is concentrated in the center
speaker.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 54).
The surround speakers produce no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the surround speakers produce no sound (page 48).
• Depending on the source and current listening mode,
not much sound may be produced by the surround
speakers. Try selecting another listening mode.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 54).
The center speaker produces no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound (page 48).
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 54).

Troubleshooting—Continued
• The surround back speakers are not used with all listening modes. Select another listening mode
(page 48).
• Not much sound may be produced by the surround
back speakers with some sources.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 54).
The subwoofer produces no sound
• The level of the input signal was too low so the subwoofer entered Standby mode. Increase the subwoofer
level slightly on the HT-R540.
• Make sure that the subwoofer’s [POWER] switch is
set to ON (not North American models).
• The subwoofer’s OUTPUT LEVEL control is set at
minimum. Turn it up.
• The subwoofer outputs no sound while only speaker
set B is on. Turn on speaker set A.
• When you play source material that contains no information in the LFE channel, the subwoofer produces
no sound.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 54).
Speaker set B produces no sound
• Speaker set B only outputs sources that are connected
to an analog input. Make sure that the analog audio
cables are connected properly.
There’s no sound with a certain signal format
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some games consoles, such as those
that can play DVDs, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio output format from a menu.
Can’t get 6.1- or 7.1-channel playback
• While speaker set B is on, speaker set A is reduced to
5.1-channel playback.
The volume cannot be set to 79
• When the volume level of each speaker has been
adjusted (pages 45, 53), the maximum possible volume may be reduced.
Noise can be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
cords, speaker cables, and so on may degrade the
audio performance, so don’t do it.
• An audio cable may be picking up interference. Try
repositioning your cables.
The Late Night function doesn’t work
• Make sure the source material is Dolby Digital
(page 50).
62
The multichannel DVD input doesn’t work
• Check the multichannel DVD input connections
(page 26).
• To select the multichannel DVD input, press the
[MULTI CH] input selector button.
• Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.
About DTS signals
• When playing DTS program material, using the pause,
fast forward, or fast reverse function on your player
may produce a short audible noise. This is not a malfunction.
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV receiver remains in DTS listening mode and the DTS indicator remains on. This is to
prevent noise when you use the pause, fast forward, or
fast reverse function on your player. If you switch your
player from DTS to PCM, because the AV receiver
does not switch formats immediately, you may not
hear any sound, in which case you should stop your
player for about 3 seconds, and then resume playback.
• With some CD players, you won’t be able to playback
DTS material properly even though your player is connected to a digital input on the AV receiver. This is
usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed
(e.g., output level, sampling rate, or frequency
response changed) and the AV receiver doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such cases, you
may hear noise.
Video
There’s no picture
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 22).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
• The AV receiver does not convert between formats, so
if a video source component is connected to a component video input, your TV must be connected to the
component video output (page 23).
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
• While the Pure Audio listening mode (not North
American model) is selected, the video circuits are
turned off and the AV receiver outputs no video signals.
HT-S790_En.book Page 63 Friday, February 17, 2006 3:28 PM
Troubleshooting—Continued
Tuner
Reception is noisy, stereo FM reception suffers
from hiss, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
appear
• Relocate your antenna.
• Move the AV receiver away from your TV or computer.
• Listen to the station in mono (page 38).
• When listening to an AM station, operating the remote
controller may cause noise.
• Passing cars and airplanes can cause interference.
• Concrete walls weaken radio signals.
• If nothing improves the reception, install an outdoor
antenna.
Remote Controller
The remote controller doesn’t work
• Make sure that the batteries are installed with the correct polarity (page 13).
• Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
away from the AV receiver, and that there’s no
obstruction between the remote controller and the AV
receiver’s remote control sensor (page 13).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 14).
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code (page 58).
Can’t control other components
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 14).
• If you’ve connected an
-capable Onkyo MD
recorder, CD recorder, or next generation HDD-compatible component to the TAPE IN/OUT jacks, or a
DS-A1 Remote Interactive Dock to the VIDEO 2 IN
jacks, for the remote controller to work properly, you
must set the Input Display to MD, CDR, or HDD (see
page 35).
• The entered remote control code may not be correct. If
more than one code is listed, try each one.
• With some AV components, certain buttons may not
work as expected, and some may not work at all.
• To control an Onkyo component that’s connected via
, point the remote controller at the AV receiver. Be
sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first
(see page 59).
• To control an Onkyo component that’s not connected
via
, or another manufacturer’s component, point
the remote controller at the component. Be sure to
enter the appropriate remote control code first (see
page 58).
Recording
Can’t record
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the AV
receiver, input signals are not fed through to outputs
with the same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT, or
VIDEO 1 IN to VIDEO 1 OUT).
• When the Pure Audio listening mode is selected,
recording is not possible because no video signals are
output. Select another listening mode.
Others
The sound changes when I connect my headphones
• When a pair of headphones is connected, the listening
mode is set to Stereo, unless it’s already set to Stereo,
Mono, Direct, or Pure Audio (not North American
model).
The display doesn’t work
• The display is turned off when the Pure Audio (not
North American model) listening mode is selected.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source
• Use the “Multiplex” setting on the “4. Audio Adjust”
menu to select Main or Sub (page 51).
The
functions don’t work
• To use
, you must make an
connection and an
analog audio connection (RCA) between the component and AV receiver, even if they are connected digitally (page 33).
63
HT-S790_En.book Page 64 Friday, February 17, 2006 3:28 PM
Troubleshooting—Continued
The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations,
severe interference, noise from an external source, or
static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely
event that this happens, unplug the power cord from the
wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it
back in again.
Onkyo is not responsible for damages (such as CD
rental fees) due to unsuccessful recordings caused by
the unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
Memory Backup
The AV receiver uses a battery-less memory backup
system in order to retain radio presets and other settings when it’s unplugged or in the case of a power failure. Although no batteries are required, the AV receiver
must be plugged into an AC outlet in order to charge the
backup system. Once it has been charged, the AV
receiver will retain the settings for several weeks,
although this depends on the environment and will be
shorter in humid climates.
64
The following settings can be made for the
S-Video and composite video inputs
You must use the buttons on the unit to make these settings.
1. While holding down the input selector button for the
input source that you want to set, press the [SETUP]
button.
2. Use the Up and Down [ ]/[ ] buttons to select a
setting (see below).
3. Use the Left and Right [ ]/[ ] buttons to change
the setting:
4. Press the [SETUP] button when you’ve finished.
• Video Attenuation
This setting can be made for the DVD, VIDEO 1,
VIDEO 2, or VIDEO 3 input.
If you have a games console connected to an S-Video
or composite video input, and the picture isn’t very
clear, you can attenuate the gain.
Video ATT:0: (default).
Video ATT:2: Gain is reduced by 2 dB.
• Outputting S-Video Sources from the Composite
Video Outputs
This setting can be made for the DVD, VIDEO 1, or
VIDEO 2 input.
With this setting, you can output S-Video input
sources from the composite video outputs, useful if
your TV doesn’t have any S-Video inputs.
Y/C Mix:Off: S-Video input signals are output by
only S-Video outputs (default).
Y/C Mix:On: S-Video input signals are output by
S-Video outputs and composite video outputs.
