THX Ultra2
Before any home theater component can be THX
Ultra2 certified, it must pass a rigorous series of
quality and performance tests. Only then can a product feature the THX Ultra2 logo, which is your guarantee that the Home Theater products you purchase
will give you superb performance for many years to
come. THX Ultra2 requirements define hundreds of
parameters, including power amplifier performance,
and pre-amplifier performance and operation for
both digital and analog domains. THX Ultra2 receivers also feature proprietary THX technologies (e.g.,
THX Mode) which accurately translate movie
soundtracks for home theater playback.

Connecting Your Speakers
Enjoying Home Theater
Thanks to the AV receiver’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. You can enjoy DVDs featuring Dolby Digital or DTS.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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 53) or manually (see page 96).
Using Dipole Speakers
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.

Speaker Connection Precautions
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• You can connect speakers with an impedance of
between 4 and 16 ohms. If the impedance of any of the
connected speakers is 4 ohms or more but less than 6,
be sure to set the speaker impedance to 4 ohms (see
page 44). 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 amp protection circuit may
be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• Read the instructions supplied with your speakers.
• Pay close attention to speaker wiring polarity. 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 a speaker to several terminals.
Connecting the Speaker Cables
1
Strip about 5/8" (15
mm) of insulation from
the ends of the
speaker cables, and
twist the bare wires
tightly, as shown.
2
5/8" (15 mm)
3
Fully insert the bare wire.
4
Screw the terminal tight.
Unscrew the terminal.
The following illustration shows which speaker should be connected to each pair of terminals.
If you’re using only one surround back speaker, connect it to the SURR BACK L terminals.

Bi-amping Speaker Hookup
Bi-amping the Front Speakers
The FRONT L/R and SURR BACK L/R terminal posts
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 receiver is able to
drive up to 5.1 speakers in the main room.
• For bi-amping, the FRONT L/R terminal posts connect to the front speakers’ tweeter terminals. And the
SURR BACK L/R terminal posts connect to the front
speakers’ woofer terminals.
• Once you’ve completed the bi-amping connections
shown below and turned on the AV receiver, you must
set the Speaker Type setting to Bi-Amp to enable biamping (see page 44).
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.

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.

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.

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, you must make an audio connection and a video connection.
Video Connection Formats
Video equipment can be connected to the AV receiver 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 receiver can upconvert and downconvert between video formats, depending on the HDMI Monitor setting,
which generally determines whether video signals are upconverted for the component video output or the HDMI output.
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 (page 107).
■ HDMI Monitor Setting Set to Yes
With the HDMI Monitor setting set to Yes (see
page 45), video input signals flow through the
AV receiver as shown, with composite video,
S-Video, and component video sources all
being upconverted for the HDMI output. Use
this setting if you connect the AV receiver’s
HDMI OUT to your TV.
The composite video, S-Video, and component
video outputs pass through their respective
input signals as they are.

Hooking Up the Multichannel Input
If your DVD player supports multichannel audio formats such as DVD-Audio and SACD, and it has a multichannel
analog audio output, you can connect it to the AV receiver’s multichannel input.
Use a multichannel analog audio cable, or several normal audio cables, to connect the AV receiver’s MULTI CH FRONT
L/R, CENTER, SURR L/R, SURR BACK L/R, and SUBWOOFER jacks to the 7.1-channel analog audio output on your
DVD player. If your DVD player has a 5.1-channel analog audio output, don’t connect anything to the AV receiver’s
SURR BACK L/R jacks.
Before using the multichannel input, you must assign it to an input selector. See “Analog Input Setup” on page 52. To
select the multichannel input, see “Selecting Audio Inputs” on page 81. To adjust the subwoofer sensitivity for the
multichannel input, see “Subwoofer Input Sensitivity” on page 109.

Notes:
• The AV receiver must be turned on for recording. Recording is not possible while it’s on Standby.
• If you want to record directly from your TV or another video source without going through the AV receiver, connect
the audio and video outputs from your TV or other video component directly to the recording VCR/DVR’s audio and
video inputs. See the manuals supplied with your TV or VCR/DVR for details.
• Video signals connected to composite video inputs can only be recorded via the VCR/DVR OUT V jack. So if your
source TV or VCR is connected to a composite video input, the recording VCR/DVR must be connected to the
VCR/DVR OUT V jack. Likewise, video signals connected to S-Video inputs can only be recorded via the VCR/DVR
OUT S jack. So if your source TV or VCR is connected to an S-Video input, the recording VCR/DVR must be
connected to the VCR/DVR OUT S jack.

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 receiver uses HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), so only HDCP-compatible components will
display a picture.
The AV receiver’s HDMI interface is based on the following standard:
High-Definition Multimedia Interface Specification Informational Version 1.3a
Supported Audio Formats
• 2-channel linear PCM (32–192 kHz, 16/20/24 bit)
• Multichannel linear PCM (7.1 ch, 32–192 kHz)
• 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 receiver supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection),*2 a copy-protection system for digital
video signals. Other devices connected to the AV receiver via HDMI must also support HDCP.
Use a commercially available HDMI cable (supplied with some components) to connect the AV receiver’s HDMI OUT
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.

Connecting Your Components—Continued
Making HDMI Connections
Step 1: Use HDMI cables to connect the AV receiver’s HDMI jacks to your HDMI-compatible DVD player, TV,
projector, and so on.
Step 2: Assign each HDMI IN to an input selector. See “HDMI Input Setup” on page 46.
■ Video Signals
Digital video signals received by the HDMI IN jacks are normally output by the HDMI OUT for display on your TV.
Composite video, S-Video, and component video sources can be upconverted for the HDMI output. See “Video Connection Formats” on page 27 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
receiver. Normally, they are not output by the HDMI OUT, unless the HDMI Audio Out setting is set to On (see
page 109).
Hint!
To listen to audio received by the HDMI IN jacks through your TV’s speakers, set the HDMI Audio
Out setting to On (see page 109), and set your DVD player’s HDMI audio output setting to PCM.
When listening to audio from an HDMI component through the AV receiver’s speakers, set the HDMI
component so that its video can be seen on your TV (e.g., on your TV, select the input to which the
HDMI component is connected). If your TV is not turned on or a different input is selected, the AV
receiver's speakers may produce no sound or the sound may be cut off.
Note:
• When the HDMI Audio setting is set to On (see page 109), or TV Control is set to Enable and you’re listening through
your TV’s speakers, if you turn up the AV receiver’s volume control, the sound will be output by the AV receiver’s
speakers. To stop the AV receiver’s speakers producing sound, change the settings, change your TV’s settings, or turn
down the AV receiver’s volume.

Notes:
• If your turntable has a ground wire, connect it to the
AV receiver’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
receiver’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 receiver’s
GAME/TV IN S jack.
• Enter the appropriate remote control code before
using the AV receiver’s remote controller for the first
time (see page 119).
Notes:
• Connect the RI Dock to the AV receiver with an
cable (see page 42).
• Set the RI Dock’s RI MODE switch to HDD or HDD/DOCK.
• Set the AV receiver’s Input Display to DOCK (see page 49).
• See the RI Dock’s instruction manual for more information.
Connecting the Power Cords of Other Components (North American model only)
The AV receiver has AC outlets on its rear panel that can be used to
connect the power cords of other components that you intend to use with
the AV receiver. These components can then be left turned on so that
they turn on and off as and when the AV receiver is set to On or Standby.
Caution:
• Make sure that the total capacity of the components that you connect
to the AC OUTLETS does not exceed the stated capacity (e.g.,
TOTAL 120 W).
Notes:
• When the HDMI Control setting is set to Enable (page 109), the AC
outlets are on all the time regardless of whether the AV receiver 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
should be connected
directly to a wall outlet, not an AC OUTLET on the AV receiver.

Connecting Your Components—Continued
Connecting Integra/Onkyo
Components
Step 1: Make sure that each Integra/Onkyo component is connected to the AV receiver with an analog audio cable
(RCA).
Step 2: Make the necessary
connections (see illustration below).
Step 3: If you’re using an MD, CDR, or RI DOCK component, change the Input Display (see page 49).
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 with components that are 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 input, you’ll need to press the
[Audio Selector] button repeatedly and select Multich to hear all channels (see page 81), as the Direct Change
function selects the DVD IN L/R jacks.
Remote Control
You can use the AV receiver’s remote controller to control your other
-capable Integra/Onkyo components. You must
enter the appropriate remote control code first (see page 120). And remember to point the remote controller at the AV
receiver and not the other component.
Notes:
• Use only
cables for
connections.
cables
are supplied with Integra/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 Integra/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 Integra/Onkyo components.
• While Zone 2 or Zone 3 is on, the Auto Power
On/Standby and Direct Change
functions do not
work.

If you connect a video component to an HDMI IN, you
must assign that input to an input selector. For example,
if you connect your DVD player to HDMI IN 1, you
must assign HDMI IN 1 to the DVD input selector.
By default, none of the HDMI inputs are assigned. The
following input selectors can be assigned: DVD,
VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT, GAME/TV, AUX 1, AUX 2,
TAPE, CD, PHONO.
If you’ve connected your TV to the AV receiver with an
HDMI cable, you can set the AV receiver so that composite video, S-Video, and component video sources are
upconverted (*) and output by the HDMI OUT. You can
set this for each input selector by selecting the “- - -”

If you connect a video component to a COMPONENT
VIDEO IN, you must assign that input to an input
selector. For example, if you connect your DVD player
to COMPONENT VIDEO IN 3, you must assign COMPONENT VIDEO IN 3 to the DVD input selector.
By default, the DVD input selector is assigned to COMPONENT VIDEO IN 1, and all of the other input selectors (i.e., VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT, GAME/TV, AUX 1,
AUX 2, TAPE, CD, PHONO) are assigned to the “- - -”
option.
If you’ve connected your TV to the AV receiver with a
component video cable, you can set the AV receiver so
that composite video and S-Video sources are upconverted (*) and output by the COMPONENT VIDEO
MONITOR OUT 1 or 2. You can set this for each input
selector by selecting the “- - -” option.

Using Audyssey MultEQ XT
Automatic Speaker Setup
(Audyssey MultEQ XT)
With the supplied speaker setup microphone, Audyssey
MultEQ XT can measure the number of speakers connected, their sizes, crossover frequencies, and distances
from the listening position and calculate the optimal
speaker settings for you automatically.
Before using this function, connect and position all of
your speakers.
Measurement Positions
To create a listening environment in which several
people can enjoy your home theater simultaneously,
Audyssey MultEQ XT 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.
TV
TV
Notes:
• If any of your speakers is 4 ohms, change the
Speaker Impedance setting before running the
automatic speaker setup (see page 44).
• If the AV receiver 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.

Auto Speaker Setup
In some cases, the measurements taken by the automatic
speaker setup may not provide usable results. If running
the speaker setup a second time doesn’t help, you’ll have
to set the speaker settings manually (see pages 96–101).
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 96).
• 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, as it outputs very
low-frequency sound and its position is usually low
down, it may not be detected by the automatic speaker
setup. In this case, increase the subwoofer’s volume,
select 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, it may not
be detected, 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. 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 receiver supports four types of RDS information:

XM Radio Messages
The following messages may appear while using XM
Satellite radio.
❑ CHECK ANTENNA
The XM antenna is not properly connected to the
Mini-Tuner Dock. Check the connection. Check the
antenna cable for damage.
❑ UPDATING
XM is updating your Mini-Tuner with the latest
encryption code. Wait a few seconds until the update
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.
❑ NO SIGNAL
The XM Mini-Tuner cannot receive the satellite signal. Check the XM antenna for obstructions to the
southern sky. Check the antenna positioning with the
Antenna Aiming function (see left column).
❑ LOADING
The AV receiver is tuning or decoding audio or text
data. Please wait. If this occurs often, check the XM
antenna position with the Antenna Aiming function
(see left column).
❑ OFF AIR
The XM channel you selected is not currently broadcasting. Select another channel.
❑ UPGRADE XM TUNER
The connected XM CNP-1000 is incompatible. The
AV receiver 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
receiver’s model name and CNP-1000 XM ID number ready beforehand, and explain that your AV
receiver 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
receiver, make sure the XM Mini-Tuner is properly
seated in the Mini-Tuner Dock, and then turn the AV
receiver 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 receiver 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 receiver and is not
damaged. If the issue persists, contact XM Listener
Care. Have the AV receiver’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.

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.
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/24-bit sampling rate and signal
resolution.
Direct
Dolby TrueHD
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.
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 lossless audio performance with 96 kHz/24bit sampling rate and signal resolution.
The AV receiver supports 7.1-channel sources up to
96 kHz and 2-channel sources up to 192 kHz.
Stereo
Sound is output by the front left and right speakers.
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.
Multichannel
This mode is for use with analog or PCM multichannel
sources.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx
This mode 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.
• Dolby PLIIx Movie
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.
Dolby EX
This mode expands 5.1-channel sources for 6.1/7.1channel playback. It’s 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.
DTS NEO:6
This mode expands any 2-channel source for 7.1-channel 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.
• 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).
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 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
that 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
that use a matrix-encoded back-channel for 6.1/7.1channel playback. Use it with DVDs that bear the DTSES logo.
DTS-HD High Resolution
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/24-bit sampling rate and signal
resolution.
87
DTR-7.8̲En.book Page 88 Friday, May 9, 2008 1:56 PM
Using the Listening Modes—Continued
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 uncompressed digital audio with 96 kHz/24-bit
sampling rate and signal resolution.
The AV receiver supports 7.1-channel sources up to
96 kHz and 5.1-channel sources up to 192 kHz.
Neural THX 5.1/7.1
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.
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
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 receiver can
expand from 5.1 channels to 7.1 channels.
Mono Movie
DSD
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.
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 Cinema
This mode is for watching movies, which are typically recorded and edited on the assumption that they
will be played in a sizable place like a movie theater.
It carefully optimizes the tonal and spatial characteristics of the soundtrack for reproduction in the
smaller home-theater environment. It can be used
with 2-channel sources processed with other formats, and multichannel sources. Surround back
speaker output depends on the source material and
the selected listening mode.
• 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 Music Mode
This mode is designed for use with music. It expands
5.1-channel sources for 7.1-channel playback.
• THX Games Mode
This mode is designed for use with video games. It
can expand 2-channel and 5.1-channel sources for
6.1/7.1-channel playback.
88
• THX Surround EX
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
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 virtual 5.1 surround
sound even with only two or three speakers. It 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.
Note:
• Since the Onkyo original DSP modes use the Dolby
PLIIx and Neo:6 circuits for processing, when one of
these modes is selected, the PLIIx indicator, or Neo:6
indicator for multichannel sources, lights up.

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.
Camcorder
Recording the Input Source

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 26 to 42
for hookup information.

■ DSD
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
selected.
No: DSD signals are not processed by the DSP.
Yes: DSD signals are processed by the DSP.
Multiplex/Mono Settings
Multiplex
■ Input Ch
This setting determines which channel of a stereo multiplex source is output. 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.
Main/Sub: Both the main and sub channels are output.
Mono
■ Input Ch
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.
■ Output Speaker
This setting determines which speakers output mono
audio when the Mono listening mode is selected.
L/R: Mono audio is output by the front left and right
speakers.
C: Mono audio is output by the center speaker
(default).
These settings apply to only 2-channel stereo sources.
If you’re not using any surround back speakers, these
settings apply to Dolby Pro Logic II, not Dolby Pro
Logic IIx.
■ Panorama
With this setting, you can broaden the width of the front
stereo image when using the Dolby 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 Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music
listening mode. It can be adjusted from –3 to +3. The
default value is 0. 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.
■ 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 3.
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.

This setting determines how Dolby EX signals are handled.
Auto: When the source is Dolby EX, you can select
the Dolby EX or THX Surround EX listening
mode.
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.).
T–D (Theater-Dimensional) 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.
■ Multich PCM
Sets the level of the LFE channel for multichannel PCM
sources. (Multichannel PCM is input via HDMI.)
Listening Mode Presets
On the Listening Mode Preset menu, you can specify a
default listening mode for each of the audio formats supported by each input selector. The AV receiver will then
select the listening mode automatically depending on the
format of the input signal. You can still select the other
listening modes, although the default listening mode will
be used the next time you turn on the AV receiver.

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.

■ Remote ID
When several Integra/Onkyo components are used in the
same room, their remote ID codes may overlap. To differentiate the AV receiver from the other components,
you can change its remote ID from 1, the default, to 2 or
3.
Note:
• If you do change the AV receiver’s remote ID, be sure
to change the remote controller to the same ID (see
below), otherwise, you won’t be able to control it with

■ AM Freq Step (on some models)
See “AM Frequency Step Setup (on some models)” on
page 59.
■ Satellite Radio (on North American model)
If you connect an XM Satellite Radio antenna or SIRIUS
Satellite Radio antenna to the AV receiver (both sold separately), set this setting to XM or SIRIUS respectively. If
you connect both types of antenna, select XM/SIRIUS.
Otherwise, select None. See the separate Satellite Radio
Guide for more information.
Analog Multich
■ Subwoofer Input Sensitivity
Some DVD players output the LFE channel from their
analog subwoofer output at 15 dB higher than normal.
With this setting, you can change the AV receiver’s subwoofer sensitivity to match your DVD player. Note that
this setting only affects signals connected to the AV
receiver’s MULTI CH SUBWOOFER jack.
You can select 0 dB, 5 dB, 10 dB, or 15 dB.
If you find that your subwoofer is too loud, try the 10 dB
or 15 dB setting.
HDMI
■ HDMI Audio
This setting determines whether audio received by an
HDMI input is output by the HDMI OUT. You may want
to change this setting to On if your TV is connected to
the HDMI OUT and you want to listen to audio from an
HDMI component through your TV’s speakers. Normally, it should be set to Off.
Off: HDMI audio is not output (default).
On: HDMI audio is output.
Notes:
• If On is selected and the signal can be output by the
TV, the AV receiver will output no sound through its
speakers.
• When TV Control is enabled, this setting is set to
Auto.
• With some TVs and input signals, no sound may be
output even if On is selected.
• When the HDMI Audio setting is set to On, or TV
Control is set to Enable and you’re listening through
your TV’s speakers (see page 37), if you turn up the
AV receiver’s volume control, the sound will be output
by the AV receiver’s speakers. To stop the AV
receiver’s speakers producing sound, change the settings, change your TV’s settings, or turn down the AV
receiver’s volume.
■ Lip Sync
The Lip Sync function can automatically synchronize
HDMI audio and video that’s gotten out of sync due to
the complex digital video processing being performed by
your HDMI-compatible TV. With HDMI Lip Sync, the
audio delay required to synchronize the audio and video
is calculated and applied automatically by the AV
receiver.
Disable: HDMI lip sync disabled.
Enable: HDMI lip sync enabled.
Notes:
• This function works only if your HDMI-compatible
TV supports HDMI Lip Sync.
• You can check the amount of delay being applied by
the HDMI Lip Sync function on the A/V Sync screen
(see page 104).
■ xvYCC
If your HDMI source and HDMI-compatible TV both
support the xvYCC color standard, you can enable
xvYCC color on the AV receiver with this setting.
Disable: xvYCC color disabled.
Enable: xvYCC color enabled.
■ Control
This function allows CEC-compatible components or
RIHD-compatible components connected via HDMI to
be controlled with the AV receiver.
Disable: HDMI Control disabled.
Enable: HDMI Control enabled.
Notes:
• Select Disable if a connected component is incompatible or you’re not sure about its compatibility.
• If operation is unreliable when set to Enable, select
Disable instead.
• When the HDMI Audio setting is set to On, or TV
Control is set to Enable and you’re listening through
your TV’s speakers (see page 37), if you turn up the
AV receiver’s volume control, the sound will be output
by the AV receiver’s speakers. To stop the AV
receiver’s speakers producing sound, change the settings, change your TV’s settings, or turn down the AV
receiver’s volume.
Power Control
To link the power functions of CEC-compatible components or RIHD-compatible components connected via
HDMI, select Enable.
Disable: Power Control disabled.
Enable: Power Control enabled.
Notes:
• The Power Control setting can be set only when the
above Control setting is set to Enable.

• HDMI power control only works with HDMI-compatible components that support it and may not work
properly with some components due to their settings
or compatibility.
• When set to Enable, the AV receiver consumes more
power.
• When set to Enable, the AV receiver enters Ready
mode when set to Standby, and the READY indicator
lights up instead of the STANDBY indicator (not
North American model). Also, the AV receiver’s AC
outlets will be on all of the time regardless of whether
the AV receiver is set to On or Standby, or Ready mode
in this case.

Zone 2 and Zone 3
In addition to your main listening room, you can also enjoy playback in two other rooms, or as we call them, Zone 2
and Zone 3. And, you can select a different source for each room.
Connecting Your Zone 2 Speakers to an
Amp in Zone 2
Connecting Zone 2
There are two ways you can connect Zone 2 speakers:
1. Connect them directly to the AV receiver.
2. Connect them to an amp in Zone 2.
Connecting Your Zone 2 Speakers Directly
to the AV receiver
This setup allows 5.1-channel playback in your main
room and 2-channel stereo playback in Zone 2, with a
different source in each room. This is called Powered
Zone 2, as the Zone 2 speakers are powered by the AV
receiver. Note that when Powered Zone 2 is turned off,
you can enjoy 7.1-channel playback in your main room.
Hookup
• Connect your Zone 2 speakers to the AV receiver’s
ZONE 2 L/R speaker terminals.
This setup allows 7.1-channel playback in your main listening room and 2-channel stereo playback in Zone 2,
with a different source in each room.
Hookup
• Use an RCA audio cable to connect the AV receiver’s
ZONE 2 PRE OUT L/R jacks to an analog audio input
on your Zone 2 amp.
• Use an RCA audio cable to connect the AV receiver’s
ZONE 2 PRE OUT SW jack to the line input on a
powered subwoofer in Zone 2.
• Connect your Zone 2 speakers to the speaker terminals on your Zone 2 amp.

Hookup
• Use a miniplug cable to connect the AV receiver’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.

Zone 2 and Zone 3—Continued
Using the Remote Controller in
Zone 2/3 and Multiroom Control Kits
To control the AV receiver 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 receiver’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
receiver located in the cabinet via the connecting block.

The AV receiver’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
[ ] button is pressed in the CD remote mode.
This is useful when you’ve entered the appropriate
remote control code (page 119) but some buttons don’t
work as expected.
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 [+]/[–], ReEQ, 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 [
] buttons
are linked, so using the [Standby] button to learn the
command will mean that you can also use the TV
[
] 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 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 120).
• 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.

Troubleshooting
If you have any trouble using the AV receiver, look for a
solution in this section. If you can’t resolve the issue
yourself, contact the dealer from whom you purchased
this unit.
If you can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver before contacting the dealer from
whom you purchased this unit.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults,
turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR]
button, press the [Standby/On] button. “Clear” will
appear on the display and the AV receiver will
enter Standby mode.
Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
radio presets and custom settings.
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 back 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 the dealer from whom you purchased this
unit..
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet
• Make sure that the digital input is assigned to the input
selector (page 50).
• Make sure that the correct audio input is selected
(page 81).
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 26).
• Make sure that the polarity of the speaker cables is
correct, and that the bare wire is in contact with the
metal part of each speaker terminal (page 22).
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume (page 60). The AV receiver is
designed for home theater enjoyment and has a wide
volume range for precise adjustment.
124
• If the MUTING indicator is flashing on the display,
press the remote controller’s [Muting] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 79).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the Phones

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.
• If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must use
an MC head amp or MC transformer (page 39).
• Check the speaker settings (pages 96–101).
• If the digital signal format is set to PCM or DTS, set it
to Auto (page 81).
• 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 compatible audio format.
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 93).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 96).
Only the center speaker produces sound
• If you use the Dolby Pro Logic IIx Movie or Dolby Pro
Logic IIx Music listening mode with a mono source,
such as an AM radio station or mono TV program, the
sound will be 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 93).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 96).
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 82).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 96).
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 93).
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 96).
The surround back speakers produce no sound
• The surround back speakers are not used with all listening modes. Try another listening mode (page 82).
• Not much sound may be produced by the surround
back speakers with some sources.

Troubleshooting—Continued
The subwoofer produces no sound
• If the source material contains no audio in the LFE
channel, the subwoofer produces no sound.
• Check the Speaker Configuration (page 96).
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.
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.
Can’t get 6.1- or 7.1-channel playback
• While Powered Zone 2 is being used, playback in the
main room is reduced to 5.1-channels and the surround back speakers produce no sound (page 111).
The volume cannot be set to +18 dB (99)
• Check to see if a maximum volume has been set
(page 106).
• After the Automatic Speaker Setup function has been
run, or the volume level of each individual speaker has
been adjusted (pages 79 and 100), 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 that the source is Dolby Digital (page 91).
The analog multichannel input doesn’t work
• Check the multichannel input connections (page 31).
• Make sure that the multichannel input is assigned to
the input selector (page 52).
• Make sure that the multichannel input is selected
(page 81).
• 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, as the AV receiver does not
switch formats immediately, you may not hear anything, 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 con-
nected 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.
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 26).
• Make sure that each video component is properly connected.
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
• If your TV is connected to the HDMI OUT, set the
HDMI Monitor setting to Yes (page 45), and select “- -” in the “HDMI Input Setup” on page 46 to watch composite video, S-Video, and component video sources.
• If your TV is connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO
MONITOR OUT 1 or COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT 2/ZONE 2 OUT, set the HDMI Monitor
setting to No (page 45), and select “- - -” in the “Component Video Input Setup” on page 48 to watch composite video and S-Video sources.
• If the video source is connected to a component video
input, your TV must be connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT 1 or COMPONENT
VIDEO MONITOR OUT 2/ZONE 2 OUT or HDMI
OUT (page 27).
• If the video source is connected to an HDMI input,
your TV must be connected to the HDMI OUT
(page 27).
• If the message “Resolution Error” appears on the AV
receiver’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
• On your TV, make sure that the video input to which
the AV receiver is connected is selected.
The picture is distorted
• On non-North American models, specify the TV system used in your area in the “TV Format Setup” on
page 58.
Tuner
Reception is noisy, stereo FM reception suffers
from hiss, or the FM STEREO indicator doesn’t
light up
• Relocate your antenna.
• Move the AV receiver away from your TV or computer.

DTR-7.8̲En.book Page 126 Friday, May 9, 2008 1:56 PM
Troubleshooting—Continued
• Listen to the station in mono (page 61).
• 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 14).
• Make sure that the remote controller is not too far
away from the AV receiver and there’s no obstruction
between the remote controller and the AV receiver’s
remote control sensor (page 14).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 15).
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code (page 119).
Can’t control other components
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote controller mode (page 15).
• If you’ve connected an
-capable Onkyo MD
recorder, CD recorder, or RI Dock to the TAPE
IN/OUT jacks, or an RI Dock to the GAME/TV IN
jacks, for the remote controller to work properly, you
must set the Input Display to MD, CDR, or DOCK,
respectively (see page 49).
• 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 122).
• 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
, point the remote controller at the AV
receiver. Be sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first (page 120).
• To control an Integra/Onkyo component that’s not
connected via
, or another manufacturer’s component, point the remote controller at that component. Be
sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first
(page 119).
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.
126
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
VCR/DVR IN to VCR/DVR OUT).
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, in which case it stays the same.
How do I change the language of a multiplex
source
• On the Audio Adjust menu, change the Multiplex setting to Main or Sub (page 94).
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 42).
• While Zone 2 or Zone 3 is selected, the
functions
don’t work.
Components connected to the AV receiver’s AC
outlets don’t turn on or off when the AV receiver
is set to On or Standby
• When the HDMI Control setting is set to Enable
(page 109), the AC outlets are on all the time regardless of whether the AV receiver 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.
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 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.
Set the AV receiver to Standby before disconnecting
the power cord from the wall outlet.
