Anyone's Arc stopped working after the update?
My hdmi cec got set to off after the update, so I set it back to on...
But still can't get the audio from the TV's YouTube app to play through the receiver.
The starhub box which I connected to bd/dvd works fine.

I just bought a China-made power amp for testing to see its potential but after hooking up to the Pre Outs of the RZ730, I found out that the speaker pops whenever I change the inputs on the receiver. Previously I was only using the internal amps to drive the speakers and it was ok. Could it be the China made power amp?
Can anyone advise what is the possible problems if you have encountered similar issues before?

So my fellow Onkyo RZ owners, how you find your RZ830/730 till now? I thought it sounds way better than my Denon 3311. Not sure if it's placebo effect and also the fact that I moved to a smaller place but i could feel more immersed in the movie than before. Music also sounded better even though the distance is shorter now.

Thank you for Sharing your experience with us on the Onkyo TX Rz830. I m going to get this unit, this week. However also considering the Pioneer SC LX701 almost the same spec with a $200 additional premium. Hope any bros here can help me to decide base on your experience. My previous setup was Denon, Pioneer and Denon. After my last experience with SC LX56, I kind of leading towards Pioneer SC LX701. Had audition Onkyo RZ730 and find it also very nice too in PQ & SQ. Really appreciate any sharing here. Thank you

After you select your sources , example HDMI 1 (BD/DVD) , on the remote control there is a quick menu button, when you press on it and under OTHER - HDMI , there is a selection of "Main" or "Sub" or "Main + Sub" , what to select ?

Anyone can enlighten ?

compare to marantz 5013, certainly lo...
However when put mano-a-mano with one another

v.s

The difference of $100 buys you additional connections, and u'll not be stuck on amplification like Onkyo.
Marantz have pre-outs on all channels, u can change ur amplification with another gear!
