Hi,I have just recently moved. When setting up my 5.1 surround in my new apartment, the AVR TX-SR508 produces no sound no matter what input i choose - except for aux via jack which can produce (low!) sound. But none other inputs will work - when trying to configure via audessey the configuration sounds plays just fine, but configuration process fails (speaker detection error, and i can only retry or cancel). The units are exactly the same which worked fine in my old apartment. Could you please help - i have read a lot of forums but have not yet found any fix.I have tried disconnecting power and resetting to factory defaults, without any luck.//Martin, DENMARK
Hey. Why cant i get sound on zone2 from a hdmi input on My tx-sr508?b
Hello Jimmy, you can only play music which comes from analog connected sources.
Okej, would it work if i got a converter from optic to RCA?
Det är jag ganska säker på Jimmy. Argon DAC-1.....1298:- HIFIklubben.Toknöjd med den :)!!Dunka på!!!
Hi there, looking for working FM tuner unit for TX-SR508(MITSUMI FAEH 06-E01), if anyone have some spare, or breaking faulty unit for parts let me know. Thanks.
You will be able to get your unit repaired at one of our many service points with no problem at all. I do NOT recommend you try to repair it your self, here is the link to find a service point. -http://www.eu.onkyo.com/en/authorised-service-points-378.html
it was at service point, but its kinda expensive to buy new part. theres no problem to fix it by myself, just open and replace unit, no soldering etc. its not in warranty anymore. its just sad that product with such name is using rubbish components that will last up only to warranty ends :-(
Dear Onkyo, I've go a Onkyo TX-SR508 receiver. I would like to upgrade the firmware but I don't know how.Can you help me?Greets Wouter
Dear Mr. De Jong, you have to contact an Onkyo Service Point in order to update. Why do you think it would be necessary?
My Onkyo TX SR 508, i love it, good receiver! :D
Hi, I would like to know the proper config for a TX SR508 with a Phillips serie 7, BD Samsung and a "Fat" Xbox360. I have problems with the XBOX. some time, I cant hear anymore and have to unplug the receiver and the TV to get the sound back... any ideas?If i connect everything to the receiver, how should I config the HDMI 1 in the TV?Thanks!!
Hi Calos, I have made a video on the best way to setup and xbox360, it may help you out heres the link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvvr9uaFYik
Hi! I'm thinking of upgrading my TX-SR508 to a TX-NR509 or higher - mainly because of the network feature and android app! But can it stream FLAC files? It states in the datasheet that is can depending on the phone..I have a Samsung Galaxy W and it can play flac's but I don't know if that means that it can be used to stream flac's? Do you have a list of phones compatible with flac streaming?
Hi Mark, you would have to check the phone manufacturers for the spec's of their phones, the easy way to test this is to go into a local dealer and try it with one of the amps on their shelves , any good independent dealer would be able to help you ( don't forget to install the app on your phone first though !)
Hi! I have a tx-sr508 and the sound switches off from time to time. During one and a half hour it happened three times. You could clearly hear that the reciever changed to some other channel or just lost connection, searched for the right connection and then the sound came back after 15-20 seconds. What is wrong? (audio comes via coaxial, not hdmi).I also have the same problems with getting the hdmi-switch to work as lots of other people have, but that's another question... :-)
Has it done it on all sources ? or just one in particular ?
Both on bluray and gaming. Saw the comment above regarding hdmi-input. Maybe I should turn it off? Will check this afternoon.
hello, i like to connect an external amplifier to the onkyo tx-sr508 to connect the two front speakers. Is there a downside when i connect the amplifier to the line out connectors? I mean the dts HD is it getting worse cause of the standard front signal being send to the front speakers? grtz, Mark
Hi Mark, there are no pre outs for any of the speakers on the 508, the first model in the range is the 709. The 508 is designed to work directly with speakers and not any type of power amp.
Hi, I have a problem with my Tx-Sr508, Some hdmi channels do not work anymore. Anyone knows a technical assistance center in Genoa/Italy.Thank You!
Please go to this link to find your nearest service centre, please make sure you have your proof of purchase to hand, as they will need the details if the unit is under warranty http://www.eu.onkyo.com/en/authorised-service-points-378.html
