    Onkyo 705 Receiver and Remote Problem

    I can turn on my Onkyo TX SR-705 with my Dish remote. Can't turn it off. The installer did this and I don't know what he did. I have tried all the codes in the Dish booklet but none of them work. Any suggestions as this is the only piece of equipment that won't work with my Dish remote.

    Need a little fine tuning advice

    No, he used an existing line. AND, he used that little hand held contraption and had a hard time determining which line went to that TV. He said the hand held thing was giving him a reading like there was a splitter in that line. By George, (KAB) I think you got it!!

    Well, DirecTV made their last offer to get me to stay. One month free and a $200 credit on my account. It amazes me how some companies will treat you bad until you threaten to quit and then offer you the "moon". Long story.... I started with DISH and only left because I could never speak...

    Best Way to Upgrade to HD?

    It was $160 or so with just one HD receiver as compared to the 2 HD setup for $258. There was the $50 charge and another install fee to change out the dish. I may be off a few dollars as I my brain started to shut off thinking I had just paid so much for the 2 TV's and here I was gonna have to...

    Weird "Burp" Sound only on FOXHD 360

    Anybody else getting an audio interruption while watching Fox HD channel 360? It happens on both of my TV's. I've called Direct and powered off both HD DVR's but I still get this silence for about 1 second followed by a "burp." Then the sound comes back on. Where do I go from here?
