IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
apparatus may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed
as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter N or
coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter L or
coloured red.
IMPORTANT
The plug is fitted with an appropriate fuse. If the fuse
needs to be replaced, the replacement fuse must
approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362 and have the same
ampere rating as that indicated on the plug. Check for the
ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.

Speaker Precautions
Placement
• The subwoofer cabinet is made out of wood and is
therefore sensitive to extreme temperatures and
humidity, do not put it in locations subject to direct
sunlight or in humid places, such as near an air conditioner, humidifier, bathroom, or kitchen.
• Do not put water or other liquids close to the speakers.
If liquid is spilled over the speakers, the drive units
may be damaged.
• Speakers should only be placed on sturdy, flat surfaces
that are free from vibration. Putting them on uneven or
unstable surfaces, where they may fall and cause damage, will affect the sound quality.
• Subwoofer is designed to be used in the upright vertical position only. Do not use it in the horizontal or
tilted position.
• If the unit is used near a turntable, CD player or DVD/
BD player, howling or slipping of sound may occur.
To prevent this, move the unit away from the turntable,
CD player or DVD/BD player, otherwise lower the
unit’s output level.
Using Close to a TV or Computer
TVs and computer monitors are magnetically sensitive
devices and as such are likely to suffer discoloration or
picture distortion when conventional speakers are placed
nearby. To prevent this, the SKF-370 and SKC-370
feature internal magnetic shielding. In some situations,
however, discoloration may still be an issue, in which
case you should turn off your TV or monitor, wait 15 to
30 minutes, and then turn it back on again. This normally
activates the degaussing function, which neutralizes the
magnetic field, thereby removing any discoloration
effects. If discoloration problems persist, try moving the
speakers away from your TV or monitor. Note that
discoloration can also be caused by a magnet or
demagnetizing tool that’s too close to your TV or
monitor.
Do not place SKR-370 close to TV or a computer
monitor because they have no magnetic shield.
Input Signal Warning
The speakers can handle the specified input power when
used for normal music reproduction. If any of the
following signals are fed to them, even if the input power
is within the specified rating, excessive current may flow
in the speaker coils, causing burning or wire breakage:
1. Interstation noise from an untuned FM radio.
2. Sound from fast-forwarding a cassette tape.
3. High-pitched sounds generated by an oscillator,
electronic musical instrument, and so on.
4. Amplifier oscillation.
5. Special test tones from audio test CDs and so on.
6. Thumps and clicks caused by connecting or disconnecting audio cables. (Always turn off your amplifier before connecting or disconnecting cables.)
7. Microphone feedback.

Position it close to your TV facing forward at about ear level,
or at the same height as the front left and right speakers.
*
Front left and right speakers
(SKF-370 L/R)
These output the overall 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.
While speaker set B is on, this speaker outputs no sound.
Subwoofer (SKW-370)
The subwoofer handles the bass sounds of the
LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) channel. 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 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.

Speaker Connection Precautions
Read the following before connecting your speakers:
• You can connect speakers with an impedance of
6 ohms or higher. If you use speakers with a lower
impedance, and use the amplifier at high volume
levels for a long period of time, the built-in protection
circuit may be activated.
• Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before
making any connections.
• 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.

Wall Mounting
The speakers can easily be wall mounted by using the
keyhole slots. To prevent the speaker from vibrating
against the wall, attach two of the supplied thick rubber
stoppers to the rear of each speaker.
To mount the front or surround speakers vertically, use
the keyhole slot shown to hang each speaker on a screw
that’s securely screwed into the wall.

Caution:
A mounting screw’s ability to support a speaker depends
on how well it’s anchored to the wall. If you have hollow
walls, screw each mounting screw into a stud. If there are
no studs, or the walls are solid, use suitable wall anchors.
Use screws with a head diameter of 9 mm or less and a
shank diameter of 4 mm or less. With hollow walls, use
a cable/pipe detector to check for any power cables or
water pipes before making any holes.

If the subwoofer is placed on a hard floor (wood, vinyl,
tile, etc.) and playback is very loud, the subwoofer’s feet
may damage the flooring. To prevent this, place the
supplied pads underneath the subwoofer’s feet. The pads
also provide a stable base for the subwoofer.

Connecting the AM Loop Antenna
Connecting Antenna
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.
The AV receiver won’t pick up any radio signals without
any antenna connected, so you must connect the antenna
to use the tuner.
The supplied indoor AM loop antenna is for indoor use
only.
1
Assemble the AM loop antenna, inserting
the tabs into the base, as shown.
2
Connect both wires of the AM loop
antenna to the AM push terminals, as

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.
■ 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.

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/BD 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:
Pass-Thru
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): Led 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.

Making HDMI Connections
If you have an HDMI-compatible player, you can connect it to the AV receiver with an HDMI cable.
Step 1: Connect your HDMI-compatible TV to the AV receiver’s HDMI OUT jack.
Step 2: Connect your HDMI-compatible player to the AV receiver’s HDMI IN 1, 2, or 3 jack.
Step 3: Connect your HDMI-compatible player to an analog and/or digital audio input on the AV
receiver.
■ Audio Signals
• Audio and video signals received via inputs other than the HDMI IN jacks are not output by the HDMI OUT.
• Audio and video signals received via the HDMI IN jacks are output only by the HDMI OUT.
• To watch an HDMI source that’s connected via the AV receiver’s HDMI jacks, the AV receiver must be turned
on, otherwise no HDMI signal will be output.
• If you want to listen through the speakers connected to the AV receiver, in addition to an HDMI connection,
you’ll also need to make a separate analog or digital audio connection.

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 receiver, 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 receiver).
• 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.

Step 1: Make sure that each Onkyo component is connected to the AV receiver 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 37).
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 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 u will also go on Standby.
■ Direct Change
When playback is started on a component connected via u, the AV receiver automatically selects that component
as the input source.
■ Remote Control
You can use the AV receiver’s remote controller to control your other u-capable Onkyo components. You must
enter the appropriate remote control code first (see page 62). And remember to point the remote controller at the AV
receiver and not the other component.
Notes:
• Use only u cables for u connections. u cables
are supplied with Onkyo players (DVD, CD, etc.).
• Some components have two u jacks. You can
connect either one to the AV receiver. The other jack
is for connecting additional u-capable
components.
• Connect only 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 Onkyo
components.

Up and Running in a Few Easy Steps
To get your system up and running with the minimum of fuss, here’s a few pointers to help you configure the AV
receiver before you use it for the very first time. These settings only need to be made once.
■ Did you connect a component to component video input or
digital audio input?
If you did, see “Component Video Input Setup” on page 36, or
“Digital Input Setup” on page 36 respectively.
■ Did you connect an Onkyo MD recorder, CD recorder, or RI
Dock?
If you did, see “Changing the Input Display” on page 37.

indicator appears.
RDS indicator
■ 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 receiver supports four types of RDS
information:
PS (Program Service)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting PS
information, the station’s name will be displayed.
Pressing the [DISPLAY] button will display the
frequency for 3 seconds.
RT (Radio Text)
When tuned to an RDS station that’s broadcasting text
information, the text will be shown on the display (see
page 46).
PTY (Program Type)
This allows you to search RDS radio stations by type
(see page 46).
TP (Traffic Program)
This allows you to search for RDS radio stations that
broadcast traffic information (see page 46).
Notes:
• In some cases, the characters displayed on the AV
receiver may not be identical to those broadcast by the
radio station. Also, unexpected characters may be
displayed when unsupported characters are received.
This is not a malfunction.
• If the signal from an RDS station is weak, RDS data
may be displayed intermittently or not at all.

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 a digital input cannot be
recorded. Only analog inputs can be recorded.
• DTS signals will be recorded as noise, so don’t
attempt analog recording of DTS CDs or LDs.
Recording the Input Source
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 TV/TAPE 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 DVD/BD IN V jack are recorded by the
VCR connected to the VCR/DVR OUT jacks.
Audio sources can be recorded to a recorder (e.g.,
cassette deck, CDR, MD) connected to the TV/TAPE
OUT jack. Video sources can be recorded to a video
recorder (e.g., VCR, DVR) connected to the VCR/DVR
OUT jacks. See pages 21 to 34 for hookup information.

Use the input selector buttons to
select the source that you want
to record.
You can watch the source while
recording it. The AV receiver’s
MASTER VOLUME control has no
effect on recording.

Using the Listening Modes—Continued
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.
Direct
In this mode, audio from the input source is output
directly with minimal processing, providing highfidelity reproduction. All of the source’s audio channels
are output as they are.
Stereo
Sound is output by the front left and right speakers and
subwoofer.
Mono
Use this mode when watching an old movie with a mono
soundtrack, or use it with the foreign language
soundtracks recorded in the left and right channels of
some movies. It can also be used with DVDs or other
sources containing multiplexed audio, such as karaoke
DVDs.
Dolby Pro Logic II
• Dolby Pro Logic II Movie
Use this mode with DVDs and videos that bear the
Dolby Surround logo or TV shows that feature
Dolby Surround. You can also use this mode with
stereo movies or TV shows and the AV receiver will
create a 5.1 surround mix from the 2-channel stereo.
• Dolby Pro Logic II Music
Use this mode to add 5.1 surround to stereo sources
such as music CDs and DVDs.
• Neo:6 Music
Use this mode with any stereo music source (e.g.,
CD, radio, cassette, TV, VHS, DVD).
Onkyo Original DSP Modes
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.
Game-RPG
Use this mode when playing role playing game discs.
Game-Action
Use this mode when playing action game discs.
• Dolby Pro Logic II Game
Use this mode when playing game discs.
Game-Rock
Use this mode when playing rock game discs.
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.
Game-Sports
Use this mode when playing sports game discs.
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.
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.
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 Neo:6
This mode expands any 2-channel source for up to 5.1channel playback. It uses five full-bandwidth channels
of matrix decoding for matrix-encoded material,
providing a very natural and seamless surround sound
experience that fully envelops the listener.
52
• Neo:6 Cinema
Use this mode with any stereo movie (e.g., TV,
DVD, VHS).
All Ch Stereo
Ideal for background music, this mode fills the entire
listening area with stereo sound from the front and
surround speakers.
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.

7. Audio Adjust
Multiplex/Mono Settings
Input (Mux)
Main: The main channel is output (default).
Sub: The sub channel is output.
M/S: Both the main and sub channels are output.
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.
Input (Mono)
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.
This setting determines which channel is output when the Mono listening mode is used with a stereo source.
PLII/Neo:6 Settings
These settings apply to only 2-channel stereo sources.
Panorama
On: Panorama function on.
Off: Panorama function off (default).
With this setting, you can broaden the width of the front stereo image when using the Dolby Pro Logic II Music
listening mode.
Dimension
–3 to +3 (default: 0)
With this setting, you can move the sound field forward or backward when using the Dolby Pro Logic II Music
listening mode. Higher settings move the sound field backward. Lower settings move it forward.
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
0 to 7 (default: 3)
With this setting, you can adjust the width of the sound from the center speaker when using the Dolby Pro Logic
II 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.
Center Image
0 to 5 (default: 2)
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.
Setting a value [0] in the middle is set to hear a sound. Sound is spread in left and right (the outside) so that the
set value is made big. Please adjust by liking.
56
Advanced Setup—Continued
Audyssey Settings
Audyssey EQ™ is based on the same core technology as Audyssey MultEQ® that is used for automatic correction
of room acoustics. Audyssey EQ uses time-domain filters to correct problems that arise from speaker drivers and
enclosures and is calibrated to account for the acoustical problems in a typical listening environment. The
Audyssey EQ filters in the HT-R370 are specifically optimized for the Onkyo HTP-370 Speaker Package and
should not be used with other speakers.
Dynamic EQ
Off: Audyssey Dynamic EQ™ off (default).
On: Audyssey Dynamic EQ on.
With Audyssey Dynamic EQ, you can enjoy great sound even when listening at low volume levels.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into
account human perception and room acoustics. It does so by selecting the correct frequency response and
surround volume levels moment-by-moment so that the content sounds the way it was created at any volume
level--not just at reference level.
Notes:
• Audyssey Dynamic EQ allows you to maintain the proper octave-to-octave balance at any volume level in
accordance with the preset speakers.
• In order to record with appropriate sound, Audyssey EQ is automatically deactivated during a recording. After
the recording is finished, Audyssey EQ and Audyssey Dynamic EQ will resume as previously set.
• Audyssey Dynamic EQ can be set only when the “6. Equalizer” on page 55 are set to “Audyssey”.
• In “Off”, “Dyn Vol” becomes “Off”.
Dyn Vol (Dynamic Volume)
Off:
Light:
Medium:
Heavy:
Audyssey Dynamic Volume™ off.
Light Compression Mode becomes active.
Medium Compression Mode becomes active.
Heavy Compression Mode becomes active. This setting affects volume the most,
causing all sounds to be of equal loudness.
Notes:
• Other than “Off”, “Dynamic EQ” becomes “On”, and “6. Equalizer” (page 55) setting becomes “Audyssey”.
• “Dynamic Volume” becomes active when Dynamic EQ is set to “On”. Therefore, it is “Off” forcibly if
“Dynamic EQ” becomes “Off”.
If Audyssey Dynanic EQ is set to “On”, Audyssey Dynamic Volume becomes available.
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 momentby-moment at any user-selected volume setting. The result is bass response and tonal balance that remains
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 EQ to provide well-balanced sound for every listener
at any volume level.
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.

Controlling Other Components—Continued
Controlling an RI Dock
By pressing the REMOTE MODE button that’s been
programmed with the remote control code for your RI
Dock, you can control your iPod in the RI Dock with the
following buttons.
The [DOCK] button is preprogrammed with the remote
control code for controlling an RI Dock when used with
an u connection.
For some RI docks, the “ON/STANDBY” button may not
work with a remote control code 82990 (without u).
In this case, make an u connection and enter a remote
control code 81993 (with u).
For details on entering a remote control code, see
page 61.
When Using an RI Dock:
• Connect the RI Dock to the TV/TAPE IN, CBL/SAT
IN, or VCR/DVR IN L/R jacks.
• Set the RI Dock’s RI MODE switch to “HDD” or
“HDD/DOCK”.
• Set the AV receiver’s Input Display to “DOCK” (see
page 37).
• See to the RI Dock’s instruction manual for more
information.

Notes:
• This button does not turn the Onkyo DS-A2 or
DS-A2X RI Dock on or off.
• Your iPod may not respond the first time you
press this button, in which case you should press
it again. This is because the remote controller
transmits the On and Standby commands
alternately, so if your iPod is already on, it will
remain on when the remote controller transmits
an On command. Similarly, if your iPod is
already off, it will remain off when the remote
controller transmits an Off command.

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 your Onkyo dealer.
If you can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver before contacting your Onkyo
dealer.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults,
turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR]
button, press the [ON/STANDBY] 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 your Onkyo dealer.
Audio
There’s no sound or it’s very quiet
• Press the SPEAKERS [A] or [B] button to turn on the
indicator for the speakers that you want to output
sound.
• HDMI audio is passed through the AV receiver and
can only be heard from your TV.
• To listen to an audio source that’s connected to an
OPTICAL or COAXIAL input, make sure that input
is assigned to an input selector (page 36).
• Make sure that all audio connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 21).
• 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 16).
• Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting.
• Check the volume (page 38). The AV receiver is
designed for home theater enjoyment and has a wide
volume range for precise adjustment.
• If the MUTING indicator is flashing on the display,
press the remote controller’s [MUTING] button to
unmute the AV receiver (page 39).
• While a pair of headphones is connected to the
PHONES jack, no sound is output by the speakers
(page 40).
• Check the digital audio output settings 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.
• If your turntable doesn’t have a phono preamp builtin, you must connect one between it and the AV
receiver.
• If your turntable uses an MC cartridge, you must
connect an MC head amp, or an MC transformer and
a phono preamp.
• Check the speaker settings (pages 53–55).
• If the digital signal format is set to PCM or DTS, set it
to “Auto” (page 41).
Only the front speakers produce sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
only the front speakers and subwoofer produce sound.
• Check the “3. Sp Config” (page 53).
Only the center speaker produces sound
• If you use the Dolby Pro Logic II Movie or Dolby Pro
Logic II 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.
• Check the “3. Sp Config” (page 53).
The center speaker produces no sound
• When the Stereo or Mono listening mode is selected,
the center speaker produces no sound (page 52).
• Check the “3. Sp Config” (page 53).
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 48).
• Check the “3. Sp Config” (page 53).
The subwoofer produces no sound
• The subwoofer outputs no sound while only speaker
set B is on. Turn on speaker set A.
• If the source material contains no audio in the LFE
channel, the subwoofer produces no sound.
• Check the “3. Sp Config” (page 53).
67
Troubleshooting—Continued
• On the AV receiver, the subwoofer setting in the “3.
Sp Config” is set to “No”. Set the subwoofer setting to
“Yes”.
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 5.1-channel playback
• When speaker B is turned on, speaker set A is reduced
to 2.1-channel playback.
The volume cannot be set to 79
• After the volume level of each individual speaker has
been adjusted (page 55), the maximum volume may
be reduced.
• When the levels of each speaker have been adjusted
(page 55), the maximum possible volume may be
reduced.
Noise can be heard
• Using cable ties to bundle audio cables with power
cords, speaker cables, and so on 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 59).
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
connected to a digital input on the AV receiver. This
is usually because the DTS bitstream has been
processed (e.g., output level, sampling rate, or
frequency response changed) and the AV receiver
doesn’t recognize it as a genuine DTS signal. In such
cases, you may hear noise.
68
Video
There’s no picture
• Make sure that all video connecting plugs are pushed
in all the way (page 21).
• 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.
• The AV receiver does not convert between formats, so
if a video source component is connected to a
component video input, your TV must be connected to
the component video output (page 22).
• If the video source is connected to an HDMI input,
your TV must be connected to the HDMI OUT
(page 22).
There’s no picture from a source connected to
an HDMI IN
• Reliable operation with an HDMI-to-DVI adapter is
not guaranteed. In addition, video signals from a PC
are not guaranteed (page 24).
• 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/BD player.
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.
• Listen to the station in mono (page 42).
• 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).
• Install new batteries. Don’t mix different types of
batteries, or old and new batteries (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 that the AV receiver is not subjected to
direct sunshine or inverter-type fluorescent lights.
Relocate if necessary.
Troubleshooting—Continued
• If the AV receiver is installed in a rack or cabinet with
colored-glass doors, the remote controller may not work
reliably when the doors are closed.
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote
controller mode (pages 13 and 63–66).
• Make sure to set the same ID on both the AV receiver
and remote controller (page 58).
• Make sure you’ve entered the correct remote control
code (page 61).
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 34).
• Make sure you’ve selected the correct remote
controller mode (pages 13 and 63–66).
• If you’ve connected an u-capable Onkyo MD
recorder, CD recorder, or RI Dock to the TV/TAPE
IN/OUT jacks, or an RI Dock to the CBL/SAT IN or
VCR/DVR IN jacks, for the remote controller to work
properly, you must set the Input Display to “MD”,
“CDR”, or “DOCK”, respectively (page 37).
• The entered remote control code may not be correct. If
more than one code is listed, try each one.
• With some AV components, certain buttons may not
work as expected, and some may not work at all.
• To control an Onkyo component that’s connected via
u, point the remote controller at the AV receiver. Be
sure to enter the appropriate remote control code first
(page 62).
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., TV/TAPE IN to TV/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 “7. Audio Adjust” menu, change the “Input
(Mux)” setting to “Main” or “Sub” (page 56).
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 receiver, even if they are
connected digitally (page 34).
The following settings can be made for the
composite video inputs
You must use the buttons on the unit to make these
settings.
1. While holding down the input selector button for the
input source that you want to set, press the [SETUP]
button.
2. Use the Left and Right [e]/[r] buttons to change
the setting.
3. Press the input selector button for the input source
that you want to set when you’ve finished.
• Video Attenuation
This setting can be made for the DVD/BD,
VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT, or AUX input.
If you have a games console connected to the
composite video input, and the picture isn’t very
clear, you can attenuate the gain.
Video ATT:0: (default).
Video ATT:2: Gain is reduced by 2 dB.
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.
Before disconnecting the power cord from the wall
outlet, set the AV receiver to Standby.
