years to come. THX Ultra2 Plus requirements define
hundreds of parameters, including power amplifier
performance, and pre-amplifier performance and
operation for both digital and analog domains. THX
Ultra2 Plus receivers also feature proprietary THX
technologies (e.g., THX Mode) which accurately
translate movie soundtracks for home theater playback.

Notes:
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the AV
controller 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 controller 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
controller 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 controller’s remote
control sensor.

About Home Theater
Enjoying Home Theater
Thanks to the AV controller’s superb capabilities, you can enjoy surround sound with a real sense of movement in your
own home—just like being in a movie theater or concert hall. With DVDs you can enjoy DTS and Dolby Digital. With
analog or digital TV, you can enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS Neo:6, or Onkyo’s original DSP listening modes. You
can also enjoy THX Surround EX (THX-certified THX speaker system recommended).
Front left and right speakers
These output the main sound. Their role in a home theater is to provide a solid
anchor for the sound image. They should be positioned facing the listener at
about ear level, and equally spaced from the TV. Angle them inward slightly
so as to create a triangle, with the listener at the apex.
Surround left and right speakers
These speakers are used for precise
sound positioning and to add realistic
ambience.
Position them at the sides of the listener, or slightly behind, about
2–3 feet (60–100 cm) above ear level.
Ideally they should be equally spaced
from the listener.
Center speaker
This speaker enhances the front left
and right speakers, making sound
movements distinct and providing a
full sound image. For movies it’s used
mainly for dialog.
Position it close to your TV (preferably
on top) facing forward at about ear
level, or at the same height as the
front left and right speakers.
Subwoofer
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of the
LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) channel. The
volume and quality of the bass output from
your subwoofer will depend on its position, the
shape of your listening room, and your listening position. In general, a good bass sound
can be obtained by installing the subwoofer in
a front corner, or at one-third the way along the
front wall, as shown.
Tip: To find the best position for your subwoofer, while playing a movie or some music
with good bass, experiment by placing your
subwoofer at various positions within the room
and choose the one that provides the most
satisfying results.
Surround back left and right speakers
These speakers are necessary to enjoy Dolby Digital
EX, DTS-ES Matrix, DTS-ES Discrete, THX Surround
EX, etc. They enhance the realism of surround sound
and improve sound localization behind the listener. Position them behind the listener about 2–3 feet
(60–100 cm) above ear level.

Connecting the AV Controller
Connecting Your Speakers
The AV controller is designed to be used with a separate
multichannel power amplifier. You connect the AV controller’s PRE OUT jacks to the amplifier’s inputs, and
connect your speakers to the amplifier’s speakers terminals. Speaker settings such as crossover frequency and
distance are set on the AV controller.
Speaker Configuration
For 7.1-channel surround-sound playback, you need
seven speakers and a powered subwoofer.
The following table shows which channels you should
use based on the number of speakers you have.

You can use dipole speakers for the surround left and
right and surround back left and right speakers. Dipole
speakers output the same sound in two directions.
Dipole speakers typically have an arrow printed on them
to indicate how they should be positioned. The surround
left and right dipole speakers should be positioned so that
their arrows point toward your TV or screen, while the surround back left and right dipolar speakers should be positioned so that their arrows point toward each other, as
shown.

* If you’re using only one surround back speaker, use the SURR

No matter how many speakers you use, a powered subwoofer is recommended for a powerful and solid bass.
To get the best from your surround-sound system, you
must set the speaker settings. You can do this automatically (see page 58) or manually (see page 104).

Bi-amping the Front Speakers
The FRONT L/R and SURR BACK L/R outputs can be used with front speakers and surround back speakers, respectively, or bi-amped to provide separate tweeter and woofer feeds for a pair of front speakers that support bi-amping,
providing improved bass and treble performance.
• When bi-amping is used, the AV controller is able to feed up to 5.1 speakers in the main room.
• For bi-amping, the FRONT L/R outputs feed the front speakers’ woofer terminals. And the SURR BACK L/R
outputs feed the front speakers’ tweeter terminals.
• Once you’ve completed the bi-amping connections shown below and turned on the AV controller, you must set
the “Speaker Type” setting to “Bi-Amp” to enable bi-amping (see page 55).
Important:
• When making the bi-amping connections, be sure to remove the jumper bars that link the speakers’
tweeter (high) and woofer (low) terminals.
• Bi-amping can only be used with speakers that support bi-amping. Refer to your speaker manual.
See your multichannel power amplifier’s instruction manual for more information on connecting speakers.

This section explains how to connect the supplied indoor
FM antenna and AM loop antenna, and how to connect
commercially available outdoor FM and AM antennas.
Use thumbtacks or something similar to
fix the FM antenna into position.
The AV controller won’t pick up any radio signals
without any antenna connected, so you must connect the
antenna to use the tuner.
Thumbtacks, etc.

• 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.

AV Connection Color Coding
About AV Connections
RCA-type AV connections are usually color coded: red,
white, and yellow. Use red plugs to connect rightchannel audio inputs and outputs (typically labeled “R”).
Use white plugs to connect left-channel audio inputs and
outputs (typically labeled “L”). And use yellow plugs to
connect composite video inputs and outputs.
• Before making any AV connections, read the manuals
supplied with your other AV components.
• Don’t connect the power cord until you’ve completed
and double-checked all AV connections.
Optical Digital Jacks

Which Connections Should I Use?
The AV controller 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, you must make an audio connection and a video connection.
Video Connection Formats
Video equipment can be connected to the AV controller by using any one of the following video connection formats:
composite video, S-Video, component video, or HDMI, the latter offering the best picture quality.
The AV controller can upconvert and downconvert between video formats, depending on the “Monitor Out” setting,
which generally determines whether video signals are upconverted for the component video output or the HDMI outputs.
For optimal video performance, THX recommends that video signals pass through the system without upconversion (e.g., component video input through to component video output). It’s also recommended that you set the
“Immediate Display” preference to “Off” (see page 124), the “Picture Adjust” setting to the default (see
page 119), and the “Resolution” setting to “Through” (see pages 49, 50).

Connecting Components with HDMI
About HDMI
Designed to meet the increased demands of digital TV, HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a new digital
interface standard for connecting TVs, projectors, DVD players, set-top boxes, and other video components. Until now,
several separate video and audio cables have been required to connect AV components. With HDMI, a single cable can
carry control signals, digital video, and up to eight channels of digital audio (2-channel PCM, multichannel digital
audio, or multichannel PCM).
The HDMI video stream (i.e., video signal) is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface)*1, so TVs and displays
with a DVI input can be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (This may not work with some TVs and
displays, resulting in no picture.)
The AV controller uses HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)*2, so only HDCP-compatible components
will display a picture.
The AV controller’s HDMI interface is based on the following standard:
Repeater System, Deep Color, Lip Sync, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby TrueHD,
Dolby Digital Plus, SA-CD, and Multichannel PCM
Supported Audio Formats
• 2-channel linear PCM (32–192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)
• Multichannel linear PCM (7.1 ch, 32–192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)
• Bitstream (DSD, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, DTS-HD High Resolution, DTS-HD Master Audio)
Your DVD player must be able to output these formats from its HDMI OUT.
About Copyright Protection
The AV controller supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)*2, a copy-protection system for digital
video signals. Other devices connected to the AV controller via HDMI must also support HDCP.
Use a commercially available HDMI cable (supplied with some components) to connect the AV controller’s HDMI
OUT MAIN or HDMI OUT SUB to the HDMI input on your TV or projector.
*1 DVI (Digital Visual Interface): The digital display interface standard set by the DDWG*3 in 1999.
*2 HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection): The video encryption technology developed by Intel for HDMI/DVI. It’s designed to
protect video content and requires a HDCP-compatible device to display the encrypted video.
*3 DDWG (Digital Display Working Group): Lead by Intel, Compaq, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, IBM, NEC, and Silicon Image, this open
industry group’s objective is to address the industry's requirements for a digital connectivity specification for high-performance PCs and
digital displays.
37
Connecting the AV Controller—Continued
Making HDMI Connections
Step 1:
Use HDMI cables to connect the AV controller’s HDMI jacks to your HDMI-compatible Blu-ray player/DVD player,
TV, projector, and so on.
Step 2:
Assign each HDMI IN to an input selector. See “Video Input Setup” on page 50.
■ Video Signals
Digital video signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are normally output by the HDMI OUT MAIN and OUT SUB for
display on your TV. Composite video, S-Video, and component video sources can be upconverted for the HDMI outputs.
See “Video Connection Formats” on page 29 for more information.
■ Audio Signals
Digital audio signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are output by the speakers and headphones connected to the AV
controller. Normally, they are not output by the HDMI outputs, unless the “Audio TV Out” setting is set to “On” (see
page 126).
Hint!
To listen to audio received by the HDMI IN jacks through your TV’s speakers, set the “Audio TV Out”
setting to “On” (see page 126), and set your DVD player’s “Audio TV Output” setting to PCM.

Notes:
• The HDMI video stream is compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface), so TVs and displays with a DVI input can
be connected by using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. (Note that DVI connections only carry video, so you’ll need
to make a separate connection for audio.) However, reliable operation with such an adapter is not guaranteed. In
addition, video signals from a PC are not supported.
• When listening to an HDMI component through the AV controller, set the HDMI component so that its video can be
seen on the TV screen (on the TV, select the input of the HDMI component connected to the AV controller). If the
TV power is off or the TV is set to another input source, this may result in no sound from the AV controller or the
sound may be cut off.
• When the “Audio TV Out” setting is set to “On” (see page 126), or “TV Control” is set to “Enable” (see page 127)
and you’re listening through your TV’s speakers, if you turn up the AV controller volume control, the sound will be
output by the AV controller’s speakers. To stop the AV controller’s speakers producing sound, change the settings,
change your TV’s settings, or turn down the AV controller’s volume.
• The HDMI audio signal (sampling rate, bit length, etc.) may be restricted by the connected source component. If the
picture is poor or there’s no sound from a component connected via HDMI, check its setup. Refer to the connected
component’s instruction manual for details.

The AV controller’s PHONO IN is designed for use with
a moving magnet (MM) type cartridge.
Use an analog audio cable to connect the AV controller’s
PHONO IN L/R jacks to the audio output on your turntable.
Notes:
• If your turntable has a ground wire, connect it to the
AV controller’s GND screw. With some turntables,
connecting the ground wire may produce an audible
hum. If this happens, disconnect it.
• If your turntable has a moving coil (MC) type cartridge, you’ll need a commercially available MC head
amp or MC transformer. Connect your turntable to the
head amp or transformer, and connect that to the AV
controller’s PHONO IN L/R jacks.
• You can also use a phono equalizer to connect a turntable with an MC-type cartridge. See your phono
equalizer’s manual for details.

■ If you have an Onkyo DS-A1 RI Dock
• Connect its video output jack to the AV controller’s AUX 1 jack.
Notes:
• Connect the RI Dock to the AV controller with an u cable (see page 44).
• Set the RI Dock’s RI MODE switch to “HDD” or “HDD/DOCK”.
• Set the AV controller’s Input Display to “DOCK” (see page 57).
• By using the [Dock] Remote Mode button on the remote controller of the AV controller to change the remote
mode to “DOCK”, you can operate your iPod in the RI Dock (see page 20).
If you cannot operate it, you will need to enter the appropriate remote control code (see page 137).
• See the RI Dock’s instruction manual for more information.
Connecting the Power Cords of Other Components (North American model only)
The AV controller has AC outlet on its rear panel that can be used to
connect the power cords of other components that you intend to use
with the AV controller. These components can then be left turned on
so that they turn on and off as and when the AV controller is set to On
or Standby.
Caution:
• Make sure that the total capacity of the components that you connect to the AC OUTLET does not exceed the stated capacity.
Notes:
• When the “HDMI Control” setting is set to “Enable” (page 126),
the AC outlet are on all the time regardless of whether the AV controller is set to On or Standby, or Ready mode in this case, so any
components connected to them cannot be turned on or off automatically.
• Integra/Onkyo components connected via u should be connected
directly to a wall outlet, not an AC OUTLET on the AV controller.

Connecting the AV Controller—Continued
Connecting Integra/Onkyo u Components
Step 1: Make sure that each Integra/Onkyo component is connected to the AV controller with an analog audio cable
(RCA).
Step 2: Make the necessary u connections (see illustration below).
Step 3: If you’re using an MD, CDR, or RI DOCK component, change the Input Display (see page 57).
With u (Remote Interactive), you can use the following special functions:
Auto Power On/Standby
When you start playback on a component connected via u, if the AV controller is on Standby, it will automatically
turn on and select that component as the input source. Similarly, when the AV controller is set to Standby, all components connected via u will also go on Standby. This function will not work with components that are connected to an
AC OUTLET on the AV controller.
Direct Change
When playback is started on a component connected via u, the AV controller automatically selects that component as
the input source. If your DVD player is connected to the AV controller’s multichannel input, you’ll need to press the
[Audio Sel] button repeatedly and select Multich to hear all channels (see page 129), as the Direct Change u function
selects the DVD IN L/R jacks.
Remote Control
You can use the AV controller’s remote controller to control your other u-capable Integra/Onkyo components. You
must enter the appropriate remote control code first (see page 138). And remember to point the remote controller at the
AV controller and not the other component.
Notes:
• Use only u cables for u connections. u cables
are supplied with Integra/Onkyo players (DVD, CD,
etc.).
• Some components have two u jacks. You can connect either one to the AV controller. The other jack is
for connecting additional u-capable components.
• Connect only Integra/Onkyo components to u
jacks. Connecting other manufacturer’s components
may cause a malfunction.
• Some components may not support all u functions.
Refer to the manuals supplied with your other Integra/Onkyo components.
• While Zone 2 or Zone 3 is on, the Auto Power
On/Standby and Direct Change u functions do not
work.

Automatic Speaker Setup
(Audyssey MultEQ® XT)
With the supplied calibrated microphone, Audyssey
MultEQ XT automatically determines the number of
speakers connected, their size for purposes of bass
management, optimum crossover frequencies to the
subwoofer (if present), and distances from the primary
listening position.
Audyssey MultEQ XT then removes the distortion
caused by room acoustics by capturing room acoustical
problems over the listening area in both the frequency
and time domain. The result is clear, well-balanced
sound for everyone. Enabling Audyssey MultEQ XT
allows you to also use Audyssey Dynamic EQ™, which
maintains the proper octave-to-octave balance at any
volume level.
Before using this function, connect and position all of
your speakers.
About Audyssey Dynamic Volume
Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of
large variations in volume level between television
programs, commercials, and between the soft and
loud passages of movies. Dynamic Volume looks at
the preferred volume setting by the user and then
monitors how the volume of program material is
being perceived by listeners in real time to decide
whether an adjustment is needed. Whenever
necessary, Dynamic Volume makes the necessary
rapid or gradual adjustments to maintain the desired
playback volume level while optimizing the dynamic
range. Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated into
Dynamic Volume so that as the playback volume is
adjusted automatically, the perceived bass response,
tonal balance, surround impression, and dialog
clarity remain the same whether watching movies,
flipping between television channels, or changing
from stereo to surround sound content.
About Audyssey Dynamic EQ
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of
deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by
taking into account human perception and room
acoustics. Dynamic EQ selects the correct frequency
response and surround levels moment-by-moment at
any user-selected volume setting. The result is bass
response, tonal balance, and surround impression
that remain constant despite changes in volume.
Dynamic EQ combines information from incoming
source levels with actual output sound levels in the
room, a prerequisite for delivering a loudness
correction solution. Audyssey Dynamic EQ works in
tandem with Audyssey MultEQ to provide wellbalanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
58
Measurement Positions
To create a listening environment in your home theater
that all listeners will enjoy, Audysssey MultEQ® takes
measurements at up to eight positions within the listening area.
■ 1st measurement position
This is the center position of your listening area, or
the listening position if there’s only one listener.
■ 2nd–8th measurement positions
These are the other listening positions (i.e., the
places where the other listeners will sit). You can
measure up to eight positions.
The following examples show some typical home theater
seating arrangements. Choose the one that best matches
yours, and position the microphone accordingly when
prompted.

Notes:
• If the AV controller is muted, it will be unmuted
automatically when the automatic speaker setup
starts.
• Automatic speaker setup cannot be performed
while a pair of headphones is connected.
• It takes about 15 minutes to complete the automatic speaker setup for three positions. Total measurement time varies depending on the number of
positions and speakers.
• Do not disconnect the speaker setup microphone
during the automatic speaker setup, unless you
want to cancel the setup.
• Do not connect or disconnect any speakers during
the automatic speaker setup.
Notes:
• Before starting Audyssey MultEQ® XT
Automatic Speaker Setup, arrange
the room and connect the speakers as
you would for enjoying movies.
Changes to the room after auto setup
requires you run the auto setup again,
as room EQ characteristics may have
changed.
• When starting the automatic speaker
setup, do not stand between the
speakers and microphone, and avoid
obstacles blocking the path between
speakers and microphone. This will
produce inaccurate results.
• Position the microphone at ear height
of a seated listener with the microphone tip pointed directly at the ceiling using a tripod. Do not hold the
microphone in your hand during
measurements as this will produce
innacurate results.
• Make the room as quiet as possible.
Background noise can disrupt the
room measurements. Close windows, silence cell phones, televisions, radios, air conditioners,
fluorescent lights, home appliances,
light dimmers, or other devices.
• Cell phones should be turned off or
placed away from all audio electronics during the measurement process
as Radio Frequency Interference
(RFI) may cause measurement disruptions (even if the cell phone is not
in use).

In rare situations, proper measurements taken may not
be obtainable by the by the automatic speaker setup. For
example, there may be too much noise in the room. If
running the speaker setup a second time is still unsuccessful you will have to set the speaker settings manually. (see pages 104–110).
Notes:
• For THX-certified speakers, the 80 Hz (THX) crossover frequency is recommended. If you use the automatic speaker setup, you’ll need to manually select
80 Hz (THX) for each THX-certified speaker (see
page 104).
• Because of the complexities of low-frequency sounds
and the way they interact with a room, THX recommends setting the subwoofer level and distance manually.
Using a Powered Subwoofer
If you’re using a powered subwoofer and it outputs very
low-frequency sound at a low volume level, it may not be
detected by the automatic speaker setup.
If the “Subwoofer” appears on the “Review SP Config”
screen as “No”, increase the subwoofer’s volume to the
half-way point, set it to its highest crossover frequency,
and then try running the automatic speaker setup again.
Note that if the volume is set too high and the sound distorts, detection issues may occur, so use an appropriate
volume level. If the subwoofer has a low-pass filter
switch, set it to Off or Direct. Refer to your subwoofer’s
instruction manual for details.

■ What is RDS?
RDS stands for Radio Data System and is a method of
transmitting data in FM radio signals. It was developed
by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is available in most European countries. RDS is approved by the
National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) and is
available in North America.
Many FM stations use it these days. In addition to displaying text information, RDS can also help you find
radio stations by type (e.g., news, sport, rock, etc.).
The AV controller supports four types of RDS information:
Science and technology
SCIENCE
Children’s programmes
CHILDREN
PS (Program Service)
Social affairs

This is not a malfunction.
• If the signal from an RDS station is weak, RDS data
may be displayed intermittently or not at all.

Activate your XM Satellite Radio service in the U.S.
online at http://activate.xmradio.com or call 1-800XMRADIO (1-800-967- 2346). Activate your XM Satellite Radio service in Canada online at https://activate.xmradio.ca or call 1-877-GET-XMSR (1-877-4389677). You will need a major credit card. XM will send
a signal from the satellites to activate the full channel
lineup. Activation normally takes 10-15 minutes, but
during peak busy periods you may need to keep your
XM Ready audio system on for up to an hour. When you
can access the full lineup on your XM Ready audio system you are done.
Connecting the XM Mini-Tuner and Home
Dock
To receive XM Satellite Radio, you need an XM MiniTuner and Home Dock, which includes a home antenna.
These are sold separately. For connection information,

is done. Alternatively, you may be attempting to tune
to a channel that is blocked or that you cannot
receive with your subscription package. To receive
that channel, contact XM Satellite Radio.

❑ UPGRADE XM TUNER
The connected XM CNP-1000 is incompatible. The
AV controller features advanced technology that is
designed for use with the XM Mini-Tuner. Contact
XM Listener Care and ask about upgrading your XM
CNP-1000 to an XM Mini-Tuner. Have the AV controller’s model name and CNP-1000 XM ID number
ready beforehand, and explain that your AV controller is displaying the message “Upgrade XM Tuner”.
If you already have an XM Mini-Tuner connected
and you see this message, turn off the AV controller,
make sure the XM Mini-Tuner is properly seated in
the Mini-Tuner Dock, and then turn the AV controller back on again. If the message reappears, contact
XM Listener Care and explain the issue that you’re
experiencing and the corrective actions you’ve tried.
❑ CHECK XM TUNER
The AV controller is having difficulty communicating with the XM Mini-Tuner module. Make sure the
XM Mini-Tuner is properly seated in the Mini-Tuner
Dock. And make sure the Mini-Tuner Dock cable is
properly connected to the AV controller and is not
damaged. If the issue persists, contact XM Listener
Care. Have the AV controller’s model name ready
beforehand, and explain the issue that you’re experiencing and the corrective actions you’ve tried.
❑ Unavailable Channel
You may be attempting to select a channel that is
unavailable or has changed to a different channel
number. Check xmradio.com for the latest channel
listing.

Recording
This section explains how to record the input source and
how to record audio and video from separate sources.
Notes:
• The surround sound and DSP listening modes cannot
be recorded.
• Copy-protected DVDs cannot be recorded.
• Sources connected to the analog multichannel input
cannot be recorded.
• Various restrictions apply to digital recording. Refer
to the manuals supplied with your digital recording
equipment for more details.
• Digital input signals are output by only the digital outputs, and analog input signals are output by only the
analog outputs. There is no internal conversion from
digital to analog or vice versa.
• DTS signals will be recorded as noise, so don’t
attempt analog recording of DTS CDs or LDs.
Recording from Different AV 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 and video from the camcorder connected to the AUX 2 INPUT VIDEO jack are recorded
by the VCR connected to the VCR/DVR OUT jacks.
Recording the Input Source
Camcorder
Audio sources can be recorded to a recorder (e.g., cassette deck, CDR, MD) connected to the TAPE OUT or
DIGITAL OPTICAL OUT jacks. Video sources can be
recorded to a video recorder (e.g., VCR, DVR) connected to the VCR/DVR OUT jacks. See pages 28 to 44
for hookup information.

Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) movie (e.g., TV, DVD, VHS).
• Dolby PLIIx Music
Use this mode with any stereo or Dolby Surround
(Pro Logic) music source (e.g., CD, radio, cassette,
TV, VHS, DVD).
• Dolby PLIIx Game
Use this mode with video games, especially those
that bear the Dolby Pro Logic II logo.
Dolby Digital
Use this mode with DVDs that bear the Dolby Digital
logo, and Dolby Digital TV broadcasts. This is the most
common digital surround-sound format, and it’ll put you
right in the middle of the action, just like being in a
movie theater or concert hall.
5.1-channel source + Dolby EX
These modes expand 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1channel playback. They’re especially suited to Dolby
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.
Dolby Digital Plus
Developed for use with HDTV, including the new video
disc formats Blu-ray and HD DVD, this is the latest multichannel audio format from Dolby. It supports up to 7.1
channels with 48 kHz sampling rate.
97
Using the Listening Modes—Continued
Dolby TrueHD
Designed to take full advantage of the additional storage
space offered by the new Blu-ray and HD DVD disc formats, this new Dolby format offers up to 7.1 discrete
channels of digital audio with 48/96 kHz, up to 5.1-channels with 192 kHz sampling rate.
For the signals supported by the AV controller, see
page 94.
5.1-channel source + Dolby PLIIx Music
These modes use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music mode to
expand 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1-channel playback.
5.1-channel source + Dolby PLIIx Movie
These modes use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie mode
to expand 5.1-channel sources for 7.1-channel playback.
• Neo:6 Cinema
Use this mode with any stereo movie (e.g., TV,
DVD, VHS).
• Neo:6 Music
Use this mode with any stereo music source (e.g.,
CD, radio, cassette, TV, VHS, DVD).
5.1-channel source + Neo:6
This mode uses Neo:6 to expand 5.1-channel sources for
6.1/7.1-channel playback.
DTS
The DTS digital surround-sound format supports up to
5.1 discrete channels and uses less compression for highfidelity reproduction. Use it with DVDs and CDs that
bear the DTS logo.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Developed for use with HDTV, including the new video
disc formats Blu-ray and HD DVD, this is the latest multichannel audio format from DTS. It supports up to 7.1
channels with 96 kHz sampling rate.
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-HD Master Audio
Designed to take full advantage of the additional storage
space offered by the new Blu-ray and HD DVD disc formats, this new DTS format offers up to 7.1 discrete channels of digital audio with 48/96 kHz, up to 5.1-channels
with 192 kHz sampling rate.
For the signals supported by the AV controller, see
page 95.
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 360degree 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.
DTS-ES Matrix
This mode is for use with DTS-ES Matrix soundtracks,
which use a matrix-encoded back-channel for 6.1/7.1channel playback. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTSES logo, especially those with a DTS-ES Matrix
soundtrack.
98
DTS Neo:6
This mode expands any 2-channel source for up to 7.1channel playback. It uses seven full-bandwidth channels
of matrix decoding for matrix-encoded material, providing a very natural and seamless surround sound experience that fully envelops the listener.
DTS Express
This format supports up to 5.1 channels and a lower sampling rate of 48 kHz. Applications include interactive
audio and commentary encoding for HD DVD Sub
Audio and Blu-ray Secondary Audio. Also broadcast
and media servers.
Using the Listening Modes—Continued
Neural THX 5.1/7.1
Neural-THX Surround employs psychoacoustic frequency domain processing, which allows delivery of a
more detailed sound stage, with superior channel separation and localization of audio elements. The Neural THX
5.1 and Neural THX 7.1 modes can expand any 2-channel stereo source for 5.1- or 7.1-channel playback,
respectively. Use them with CD, radio, cassette, TV,
VHS, DVD, and other 2-channel stereo sources, including video games. Neural-THX Surround can also be
used by broadcasters to encode and transmit surroundsound content over a stereo signal, which listeners can
enjoy as either surround sound or normal stereo. XM
Satellite Radio, for example, is using Neural-THX Surround on select channels, which the AV controller can
expand from 5.1 channels to 7.1 channels.
DSD
DSD stands for Direct Stream Digital and is the format
used to store digital audio on Super Audio CDs (SACD).
This mode can be used with SACDs that feature multichannel audio.
THX
Founded by George Lucas, THX develops stringent
standards that ensure movies are reproduced in movie
theaters and home theaters just as the director intended.
THX Modes carefully optimize the tonal and spatial
characteristics of the soundtrack for reproduction in the
home-theater environment. They can be used with 2channel matrixed and multichannel sources.
Surround back speaker output depends on the source
material and the selected listening mode.
• THX Games
THX Games mode is meant for spatially accurate
playback of game audio, which is often mixed similarly to movies but in a smaller environment. THX
Loudness Plus is configured for game audio levels,
with Timbre Matching active.
• THX Ultra2 Cinema
This mode expands 5.1-channel sources for 7.1channel playback. It does this by analyzing the composition of the surround source, optimizing the
ambient and directional sounds to produce the surround back channel output.
• THX Ultra2 Music
This mode is designed for use with music. It expands
5.1-channel sources for 7.1-channel playback.
• THX Ultra2 Games
This mode is designed for use with video games. It
can expand 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1-channel
playback.
• THX Surround EX
This mode expands 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1channel playback. It’s especially suited to Dolby
Digital EX sources. THX Surround EX, also known
as Dolby Digital Surround EX, is a joint development between Dolby Laboratories and THX Ltd.
• THX Cinema
THX Cinema mode corrects theatrical soundtracks
for playback in a home theater environment. In this
mode, THX Loudness Plus is configured for cinema
levels and Re-EQ, Timbre Matching, and Adaptive
Decorrelation are active.
• THX Music
THX Music mode is tailored for listening to music,
which is typically mastered at significantly higher
levels than movies. In this mode, THX Loudness
Plus is configured for music playback and only Timbre Matching is active.

Using the Listening Modes—Continued
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.
Orchestra
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.
Unplugged
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.
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.
T-D (Theater-Dimensional)
With this mode you can enjoy a virtual 5.1 surround
sound even with only two or three speakers. This works
by controlling how sounds reach the listener’s left and
right ears. Good results may not be possible if there’s too
much reverb, so we recommend that you use this mode
in an environment with little or no natural reverb.

Speaker Configuration
These settings are set automatically by the Automatic
Speaker Setup function (see page 58).
With the Speaker Configuration settings, you can specify
which speakers are connected and a crossover frequency,
distance, and level for each speaker.
The following crossover frequencies can be specified:
Full Band, 40 Hz, 45 Hz, 50 Hz, 55 Hz, 60 Hz, 70 Hz, 80
Hz (THX), 90 Hz, 100 Hz, 110 Hz, 120 Hz, 130 Hz, 150
Hz, or 200 Hz.
Specify Full Band for speakers that can output low-frequency bass sounds adequately, for example, speakers
with a good sized woofer. For smaller speakers, specify
a crossover frequency. Sounds below the crossover frequency will then be output by the subwoofer instead of
the speaker. Refer to your speakers’ manuals to determine the optimum crossover frequencies.
If you’re using THX-certified speakers, specify 80 Hz
(THX) for all speakers.

THX Loudness Plus
THX Loudness Plus is a new volume control technology featured in THX Ultra2 Plus™ and THX
Select2 Plus™ Certified receivers. With THX Loudness Plus, home theater audiences can now experience the rich details in a surround mix at any volume
level. A consequence of turning the volume below
Reference Level is that certain sound elements can
be lost or perceived differently by the listener. THX
Loudness Plus compensates for the tonal and spatial
shifts that occur when the volume is reduced by
intelligently adjusting ambient surround channel
levels and frequency response. This enables users to
experience the true impact of soundtracks regardless
of the volume setting. THX Loudness Plus is automatically applied when listening in any THX listening mode. The new THX Cinema, THX Music, and
THX Games modes are tailored to apply the proper
THX Loudness Plus settings for each type of content.

■ Treble
You can boost or cut high-frequency sounds from
–10 dB to +10 dB in 1 dB steps.
Notes:
• The tone control circuits are bypassed when the Direct

audio when the Mono listening mode is selected.
C: Mono audio is output by the center speaker
(default).
L/R: Mono audio is output by the front left and right
speakers.
DSD Setting
■ DAC Direct
This setting determines whether or not DSD (SACD)
audio signals are passed through the DSP for A/V Sync,
delay, etc., processing when the Direct listening mode is

■ Dimension
With this setting, you can move the sound field forward
or backward when using the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music
listening mode. It can be adjusted from –3 to +3. The
default value is 0. Lower settings move the sound field
forward. Higher 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.
■ Center Width
With this setting, you can adjust the width of the sound
from the center speaker when using the Dolby Pro Logic
IIx Music listening mode. Normally, if you’re using a
center speaker, 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 controls 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. The default
value is 3.
Neo:6 Music
■ 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. The
default value is 2.
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 EX Settings
Theater-Dimensional (T–D) Setting
■ Listening Angle
With this setting, you can optimize the Theater-Dimensional listening mode by specifying the angle of the front
left and right speakers relative to the listening position.
Ideally, the front left and right speakers should be equidistant from the listening position and at an angle close
to one of the two available settings.
Front left speaker
Front right speaker
30˚
Wide: Select if the angle is greater than 30 degrees
(default).
Narrow: Select if the angle is less than 30 degrees.

With these settings, you can set the level of the LFE
(Low Frequency Effects) channel individually for Dolby
Digital, DTS, and multichannel PCM sources. The level
can be set to –∞, –20 dB, –10 dB, or 0 dB (default).
If you find that low-frequency effects are too loud when
using one of these sources, change the setting to –20 dB
or –∞ dB.
■ Dolby Digital
Sets the level of the LFE channel for Dolby Digital and
Dolby Digital Plus sources.
■ DTS
Sets the level of the LFE channel for DTS and DTS-HD
High Resolution sources.

Audio sources.
Auto: When the source is Dolby EX, you can select
the Dolby EX or THX Surround EX listening
mode (default).
Manual: When the source is Dolby EX, you can select
any of the listening modes compatible with this
format (e.g., Dolby EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx,
etc.).

, which stands for Remote Interactive over
HDMI, is the name of the system control function
found on Onkyo components. The AV controller can
be used with CEC (Consumer Electronics Control),
which allows system control over HDMI and is part of
the HDMI standard. CEC provides interoperability
between various components, however, operation with
components other than
-compatible components cannot be guaranteed.
• Set to “Disable” when a connected piece of equipment
is not compatible or it is unclear whether the equipment is compatible or not.
• If movement is unnatural when set to “Enable”, change
the setting to “Disable”.
• Refer to the connected component’s instruction manual for details.

set to “Enable”.
• Refer to the connected component’s instruction manual for details.
Note:
After changing the settings of the “Control”, “Power
Control”, or “TV Control”, turn off the power to all
connected pieces of equipment and then turn on
again. Refer to the User’s Manuals for all connected
pieces of equipment.
When linking to a TV that conforms to the CEC
standard, the “Monitor Out” setting must be set to
“HDMI Main”.
Network Settings
Note:
When modifying network settings, after modifying it is
necessary to execute
Save Settings.
This section explains how to configure the AV controller’s network settings manually.
If your router’s DHCP server is enabled, you don’t need
to change any of these settings, as the AV controller is set
use DHCP to configure itself automatically by default
(i.e., DHCP is set to Enable). If, however, your router’s
DHCP server is disabled, for example, you’re using
static IP addresses, you’ll need to configure these settings yourself, in which case, a knowledge of Ethernet
networking is essential.
What’s DHCP?
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is used
by routers, computers, the AV controller, and other
devices to automatically configure themselves on a network.

Zone 3, or any combination of rooms.
When triggered, the output from a 12V TRIGGER OUT
goes high (+12 volts, 100 milliamperes max).

12V TRIGGER OUT
A
Hookup
• Use a miniplug cable to connect the AV controller’s
12V TRIGGER OUT A, B, or C jack to the 12 V trigger input on a connected component.
When several components are turned on simultaneously
by using triggers A, B, and C, depending on the type of
components, a large amount of current may be drawn
momentarily. To prevent this, you can delay trigger signals A, B, and C individually. Another application for
trigger delay is eliminating the “thump” noise that’s
sometimes heard when a source component is turned on.
Delaying the trigger signal for your power amplifier so
that it’s the last component to be turned on will accomplish this.

Using the Remote Controller in
Zone 2/3 and Multiroom Control Kits
To control the AV controller with the remote controller
while you’re in Zone 2 or Zone 3, you’ll need a commercially available multiroom remote control kit for each
zone.
• Multiroom kits are made by Niles and Xantech.
These kits can also be used when there isn’t a clear line
of sight to the AV controller’s remote sensor, such as
when it’s installed inside a cabinet.
Using a Multiroom Kit with a Cabinet
In this setup, the IR receiver picks up the infrared signals
from the remote controller and feeds them to the AV controller located in the cabinet via the connecting block.

made by other manufacturers, with the remote controller.
This section explains how to:
• Enter the remote control code for a component that
you want to control: DVD, TV, VCR, etc.
• Learn commands directly from another component’s
remote controller (see page 140).
• Program the Macro buttons to perform a sequence of
up to eight remote control actions (see page 141).
2
While holding down the Remote
Mode button to which you want
to enter the code, press the
[Standby] button.
The Remote indicator lights up.
3
Within 30 seconds, use the number buttons to enter the 4-digit
remote control code.
The Remote indicator flashes twice.
4
Press the Remote Mode button
again to select the remote controller mode, point the remote
controller at the component, and
check the operation.
If the remote controller doesn’t work as
expected, and several remote codes are
listed, try each one in turn and use the
one that works best.
Entering Remote Control Codes
To control another component, you must first enter that
component’s remote control code to a Remote Mode button. You’ll need to enter a code for each component that
you want to control.

Remote Control Codes for Integra/Onkyo
Components Connected via u
Integra/Onkyo components that are connected via u
are controlled by pointing the remote controller at the
AV controller, not the component. This allows you to
control components that are out of view, in a rack, for
example.
Note:
If you connect an u-capable Onkyo MiniDisc
recorder, CD recorder, or RI Dock to the TAPE IN/OUT
jacks, or connect an RI Dock to the AUX 1 jacks, for u
to work properly, you must set the Input Display accordingly (see page 57).

The AV controller’s remote controller can learn the commands of other remote controllers. By transmitting, for
example, the Play command from your CD player’s
remote controller, the remote controller can learn it, and
then transmit the exact same command when its Play
[1] button is pressed in the CD remote mode.
This is useful when you’ve entered the appropriate
remote control code (page 137) but some buttons don’t
work as expected.

1
While holding down the Remote
Mode button for the mode in
which you want to use the command, press the [On] button.
The Remote indicator lights up.
2
Press the button you want to
learn the new command.
3
Point the remote controllers at
each other, about 2 to 6 inches
(5–15 cm) apart, and then press
and hold the button whose command you want to learn until the
Remote indicator flashes.
Notes:
• The following buttons cannot learn new commands:
Remote Mode, Macro [1], [2], [3], TV CH [+]/[–],
Re-EQ, Light.
• When you want to learn the command from your TV’s
Power button, select the TV remote control mode and
use the remote controller’s [Standby] button to learn
the command. In the TV remote control mode, the
remote controller’s [Standby] and TV [9] buttons
are linked, so using the [Standby] button to learn the
command will mean that you can also use the TV
[9] button to turn your TV on or off in TV remote
control mode.
• When you want to learn the commands from your
TV’s Channel Up and Down buttons, select the TV
remote control mode and use the remote controller’s
CH [+/–] button (left to the [Enter] button) to learn the
commands. In the TV remote control mode, the
remote controller’s CH [+/–] and TV CH [+]/[–] buttons are linked, so using the CH [+/–] button to learn
these commands will mean that you can also use the
TV CH [+]/[–] buttons to change channels in TV
remote control mode.
• The remote controller can learn approximately 70 to
90 commands, although this will be less if commands
that use a lot of memory are learned.
• Remote controller buttons such as Play, Stop, Pause,
and so on are preprogrammed with commands for
controlling Integra/Onkyo CD players, cassette decks,
and DVD players. However, they can learn new commands, and you can restore the preprogrammed commands at any time by resetting the remote controller
(see page 138).
• To overwrite a previously learned command, repeat
this procedure.
• Only commands from infrared remote controllers can
be learned.
• When the remote controller’s batteries expire, all
learned commands will be lost and will have to be
learned all over again, so don’t discard your other
remote controllers.
Controlling Other Components—Continued
Using Macros
You can program the remote controller’s Macro buttons
to perform a sequence of remote control actions.
Example:
To play a CD you typically need to perform the following actions:
1. Press the [Receiver] Remote Mode button to select
the Receiver remote controller mode.
2. Press the [On] button to turn on the AV controller.
3. Press the [CD] Input Selector button to select the
CD input source.
4. Press the [CD] Remote Mode button to select the
CD remote controller mode.
5. Press the Play [1] button to start playback on
the CD player.
You can program a Macro button so that all five actions
are performed with just one button press.
2
Press the buttons whose actions
you want to program into the
macro in the order you want
them performed.
For the CD example in the left column,
you’d press the following buttons:
[On], [CD] Input Selector, [CD]
Remote Mode, Play [1].
3
When you’ve finished, press the
Macro button again.
The Remote indicator flashes twice.
If you enter eight commands, the process will finish automatically.
Note:
If any of the buttons you used to make a macro are taught
new commands, the macro will no longer work properly
and will have to be made again.
Running Macros
Making Macros
Each Macro button can store one macro, and each macro
can contain up to eight commands.
Press the Macro [1], [2], or [3]
button.
The commands in the macro are transmitted in the order in which they were
programmed. Keep the remote controller pointed at the AV controller until all
of the commands have been transmitted.
Macros can be run at any time, regardless of the current remote controller
mode.

• Make sure that the power cord is properly plugged into
the wall outlet.
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait 5
seconds or more, then plug it in again.
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet
• Make sure that your multichannel power amplifier is
turned on and set up correctly and connected to the AV
controller properly (page 21).
• Make sure that the digital input source is selected
properly (page 53).
• Make sure that the correct audio input is selected
(page 129).
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 28).
• Check the volume. It can be set to −∞ dB, −81.5 dB
through +18.0 dB (page 64). The AV controller is
designed for home theater enjoyment. It has a wide
volume range, allowing precise adjustment.
• If the MUTING indicator is flashing on the display,
press the remote controller’s [Muting] button to
unmute the AV controller (page 65).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the Phones
jack, no sound is output by the speakers (page 66).
• Check the digital audio output setting on the connected device. On some game consoles, such as those
that support DVD, the default setting is off.
• With some DVD-Video discs, you need to select an
audio output format from a menu.
• If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must use
an MC head amp or MC transformer (page 41).
• Check the speaker settings (pages 104–110).
142
• The input signal format is set to PCM or DTS. Set it to
“Auto” (page 129).
• If there’s no sound from a DVD player connected to an
HDMI IN, check the DVD player’s output settings,
and be sure to select a supported audio format.
• Make sure that none of the connecting cables are bent,
twisted, or damaged.
Only the front speakers produce sound
• When the Stereo listening mode is selected, only the
front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• In the Mono listening mode, only the front speakers
output sound if the “Output Speaker” setting is set to
“L/R” (page 114).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 104).
Only the center speaker produces sound
• If you use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie, Dolby Pro
Logic IIx Music, or Dolby 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.
• In the Mono listening mode, only the front speakers
output sound if the “Output Speaker” setting is set to
“C” (page 114).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 104).
The surround speakers produce no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the surround speakers produce no sound.
• Depending on the source and the current listening
mode, not much sound may be produced by the surround speakers. Try another listening mode (page 90).
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 104).
The center speaker produces no sound
• When the Stereo listening mode is selected, the center
speaker produces no sound.
• In the Mono listening mode, only the front speakers
output sound if the “Output Speaker” setting is set to
“L/R” (page 114).
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly
(page 104).
The surround back speakers produce no sound
• The surround back speakers are not used with all listening modes. Select another listening mode (page 90).
• Not much sound may be produced by the surround
back speakers with some sources.
• Make sure the speakers are configured correctly (page 104).
The subwoofer produces no sound
• 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 104).
The Zone 2/3 speakers produce no sound
• The Zone 2/3 speakers only output sources that are
connected to an analog input. Check to see if the
source component is connected to an analog input.
Troubleshooting—Continued
There’s no sound with a certain signal format
• Check the digital audio output setting on the source
component. On some game 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 or with the [Audio] button
on your DVD player’s remote controller.
• Depending on the input signal, some listening modes
cannot be selected (pages 91-96).
The volume cannot be set as required (The volume cannot be set to +18.0 dB)
• Check to see if a maximum volume has been set
(page 123).
• After the Automatic Speaker Setup function has been
run, or the volume level of each individual speaker has
been adjusted (pages 65 and 108), the maximum volume may be reduced.
Noise can be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
cords, speaker cables, and so on can degrade audio
performance, so don’t use them.
• 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, Dolby
Digital Plus, and Dolby TrueHD (page 117).
The DVD analog multichannel input doesn’t
work
• Check the DVD multichannel input connections
(page 33).
• Make sure that the multichannel input is assigned to
the input selector (page 54).
• Make sure that the multichannel input is selected
(page 129).
• Make sure that the “Speaker Type” is not set to
“Bi-Amp”. The multichannel DVD input cannot be
used if “Speaker Type” is set to “Bi-Amp” (page 55).
• Check the audio output settings on your DVD player.
About DTS signals
• When DTS program material ends and the DTS bitstream stops, the AV controller 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 controller
does not switch formats immediately, you may not hear
any sound, in which case you should stop your player
for about three 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 controller. This
is usually because the DTS bitstream has been processed (e.g., output level, sampling rate, or frequency
response changed) and the AV controller doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such cases, you
may hear noise.
• 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.
The beginning of audio received by an HDMI IN
can’t be heard
• Since it takes longer to identify the format of an
HDMI signal than it does for other digital audio signals, sound may not be output immediately.
Video
There’s no picture
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 28).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected (pages 31-43).
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV controller is connected is selected.
• If your TV is connected to the HDMI output, set the
“Monitor Out” setting to “HDMI Main” or “HDMI
Sub” (page 46), and select “- - -” in the “Video Input
Setup” on page 50 to watch composite video, S-Video,
and component video sources.
• If your TV is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO
MONITOR OUT 1 or 2, set the “Monitor Out” setting
to “Analog” (page 49), and select “- - -” in the “Component Video Setup” on page 52 to watch composite
video and S-Video sources.
• If the video source is connected to a component video
input, you must assign that input to an input selector
(page 52), and your TV must be connected to either
the HDMI OUT or COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT 1 or 2 (pages 31 and 37).
• If the video source is connected to an HDMI input,
you must assign that input to an input selector
(page 50), and your TV must be connected to the
HDMI OUT (page 37).
There’s no picture from a source connected to
an HDMI IN
• When the “Monitor Out” setting is set to “Analog”,
and the “Resolution” setting is set to anything other
than “Through” (see page 50), no video is output by
the HDMI OUT.
• If the message “Resolution Error” appears on the AV
controller’s display, this indicates that your TV does
not support the current video resolution and you need
to select another resolution on your DVD player.
The onscreen menus don’t appear
• If your TV is connected to the analog outputs, set the
“Monitor Out” setting to “Analog” (page 46).
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV controller is connected is selected.
• On non-North American models, specify the TV system
used in your area in the “TV Format Setup
(not North American models)” on page 56.
143
Troubleshooting—Continued
The immediate display does not appear
• The immediate display will not appear when the input
signal from the COMPONENT VIDEO IN is output to
a device connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO
MONITOR OUT.
• Depending on the input signal, the immediate display
may not appear when the input signal from the HDMI
IN is output to a device connected to the HDMI OUT.
Tuner
Reception is noisy, FM stereo reception is
noisy, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
appear
• Relocate your antenna.
• Move the AV controller away from your TV or computer.
• Listen to the station in mono (page 67).
• 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 15).
• Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
away from the AV controller, and that there’s no
obstruction between the remote controller and the AV
controller’s remote control sensor (page 15).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 16).
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code (page 137).
• Install new batteries. Don’t mix different types of batteries, or old and new batteries (page 15).
• Make sure that the AV controller is not subjected to
direct sunshine or inverter-type fluorescent lights.
Relocate if necessary.
• If the AV controller is installed in a rack or cabinet with
colored-glass doors, the remote controller may not work
reliably when the doors are closed.
• When using the remote controller to control other
manufacturers’ AV components, some buttons may
not work as expected.
• Make sure to set the same ID on both the AV controller
and remote controller (page 125).
Can’t control other components
• If it’s an Onkyo component, make sure that the u
cable and analog audio cable are connected properly.
Connecting only an u cable won’t work (page 44).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 16).
144
• If you’ve connected an u-capable Onkyo MD
recorder, CD recorder, u Dock to the TAPE IN/OUT
jacks, or an u Dock to the AUX 1 jacks, for the
remote controller to work properly, you must set the
display to MD, CDR, or DOCK (page 57).
If you cannot operate it, you will need to enter the
appropriate remote control code (page 137).
• The entered remote control code may not be correct. If
more than one code is listed, try each one.
• If none of the codes work, use the Learning function
to learn the commands of the other component’s
remote controller (page 140).
• With some AV components, certain buttons may not
work as expected, and some may not work at all.
• To control an Integra/Onkyo component that’s connected via u, point the remote controller at the AV
controller. Be sure to enter the appropriate remote
control code first (page 138).
• To control an Integra/Onkyo component that’s not
connected via u, or another manufacturer’s component, point the remote controller at that component. Be
sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first
(page 137).
Can’t learn commands from another remote
controller
• When learning commands, make sure that the transmitting ends of both remote controllers are pointing at
each other.
• Are you trying to learn from a remote controller that
cannot be used for learning? Some commands cannot
be learned, especially those that contain several
instructions.
Recording
Can’t record
• On your recorder, make sure the correct input is
selected.
• To prevent signal loops and damage to the AV controller, input signals are not fed through to outputs with
the same name (e.g., TAPE IN to TAPE OUT or
VCR/DVR IN to VCR/DVR OUT).
Zone 2/Zone 3
There’s no sound
• Only components connected to analog inputs can be
played in Zone 2 and Zone 3.
Troubleshooting—Continued
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, or Direct.
The speaker volume cannot be set as required
• When the Automatic Speaker Setup function is used,
or the volume is adjusted on the onscreen setup
menus, the maximum possible volume setting may
change.
The speaker distance cannot be set as required
• In some cases, corrected values suitable for home theater use may be set automatically.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source
• On the “Audio Adjust” menu, change the “Multiplex”
setting to “Main” or “Sub” (page 114).
The u functions don’t work
• To use u, you must make an u connection and an
analog audio connection (RCA) between the component and AV controller, even if they are connected digitally (page 44).
• While Zone 2 or Zone 3 is selected, the u functions
don’t work.
The functions Auto Power On/Standby and
Direct Change don’t work for components connected via u
• These functions don’t work when Zone 2 is turned on.
When performing “Automatic Speaker Setup”,
the measurement fails showing the message
“Ambient noise is too high”.
• This can be caused by any malfunction in your speaker
unit. Check if the unit produces normal sounds.
The AV controller 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 5 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
this unit’s malfunction. Before you record important
data, make sure that the material will be recorded correctly.
For North American model, set the AV controller to
Standby before disconnecting the power cord from the
wall outlet. For other models, set the AV controller to
Standby and the POWER switch to OFF before disconnecting the power cord.
