Onkyo 809 HDMI Pass through is dark/corrupted

Post  Numbercruncher on Sat Dec 01, 2012 10:18 pm

I have an Onkyo TX-NR809.

When I play test video signals via the DV Essentials Blu Ray calibration DVD, the pluge test will not display properly. Either the 2% test stripe, 4% test stripe or blacker than black test stripe will not appear. When I remove my Panasonic Blu Ray player from the Onkyo 809 and go straight to the projector the test stripes display properly. When I reconnect and run the signal through the 809 the stripes are missing again. I have made certain to set the video signal to "Through" so the 809 should not be processing the signal.

Any ideas where to start?

You'll need to use "direct" in the video setup for the source instead of through on the 809 to eliminate processing of any kind.

I have the same issue either way. I found a firmware update and Onkyo says the following:

Latest Firmware Number (16 digits): 1131-1277-0211-3107
As of 5 July 2012
Improves the operation when HDMI Through is set to on;
Stabilizes the operation of Network Control;
Corrects the video output when the Picture Mode is set to Through;
As of 16 March 2012
Stabilizes video output when using HDMI/CAT5 Extender on HDMI OUT MAIN terminal;
As of 20 December 2011

*it is also necessary to update the App.

As of 15 July 2011

I am not pleased that an expensive receiver like the 809 had an issue like this. I guess that is how it goes in our uber-computerized world and could happen at any price point with any manufacturer.

From the owners manual. Both methods should pass the signal without changes if I understand this correctly.

Through:
Does not adjust picture quality (changes resolution).

␣ Direct:
Does not adjust picture quality (does not change resolution). When video is output from HDMI output(s), it is processed the same as “Through”.
