Update methods

To update the firmware of the AV receiver, you can choose from the following two methods. Choose the one that best suits your environment.

Update via network
You need a wired Internet connection to update the firmware.

Update via USB storage
Please prepare a USB storage device such as a USB flash memory stick. You need at least 32 MB of available space to update the firmware.
We hope you enjoy the improved functionality this update provides to your AV Receiver.

Precautions for your Firmware Update

Please enter [NET] mode before starting the update.

The firmware update may fail if an external HDMI control signal is input during the update procedure. Please be sure to turn off the HDMI control function (RIHD) on your A/V receiver before starting the update.

How to turn off RIHD:
In the Main menu select "Hardware Setup", then "HDMI".
Set " HDMI Control " to OFF

- The firmware update should take 15 to 40 minutes (depending on receiver model). Once the update begins, don't turn off the power supply to the A/V receiver until it is time to restart it

- Depending on the conditions of the network, a firmware update via a network may take more than one hour or even fail to finish. If the update is not completed within two hours, turn off the power supply by pushing the ON/STANDBY button and then try updating again from the beginning

- Updating the firmware and adjusting the settings will be done automatically, but may take some time to complete. Please follow the procedures as instructed when you update. Note that the update may fail, or cause problems for your A/V receiver, if you do any of the following:

Pull out the A/V receiver’s power cord;
Interrupt the power supply to the A/V receiver (e.g. if the breaker is tripped or if there is an electrical outage);
Insert or remove the LAN cable from a device in your network when updating over a network;
Insert or remove a USB memory device from the A/V receiver when updating via USB;
Operate components connected to the A/V receiver via HDMI, such as a TV or a recording device.

If your A/V receiver is damaged for any of the reasons above, an Onkyo service center will repair the unit for a fee.

If you see "No Update" on the front panel immediately after you have started the firmware update process, you have the latest firmware. In this case it is not necessary to do this update.
Please note: if there will be an error message or a interruption during the update over Internet, please contact our service partner in your country.
