Upgrading to new Onkyo tx-nr636 Network reciever and gateway wont work.

I just changed from a older onkyo tx-nr807receiver to a new onkyo tx-nr636 and my new gateway would not work. I setup the receiver to a fixed address and setup control to on. The irule gateway is set to the fixed IP address with wake on lan setup with the correct mac address the default port of 60128 and tcp protocol.
I changed from the older onkyo receiver/preamp main zone tcp/ip to onkyo receiver/preamp zone 1 as was suggested. When i press any key I get the red no connect signal on the bottom lh side of my ipad and no indication flashing on the receiver.
I can access the receiver from a browser when I type in the ip address.
What am I doing wrong?

  • Hi Phil -

    If you would contact me directly through my email we could talk via phone - I changed out an older Onkyo for a new TX-NR838 and was having problems and finally got it to working properly. It would be rather lengthy to write out.

  • Did you go into the Onkyo menus and turn on external remote control under the network settings? Also are you able to control the receiver via the Onkyo app. I too had issues at first till I learned the system.

  • I’m excited
    I have found the issue,
    If you try to access the new receiver with old codes, you will lock up the network controls on the receiver.

    YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG THE RECEIVER TO CLEAR THE ISSUE !!!

    Then you have to treat the newer Onkyo Receivers as a completely different piece of equipment. you need to remove all the existing Onkyo commands and replace them with the Integra commands. If you also have older Onkyo equipment, the new commands will control them also. If you have the pro version you can replace the device and then replace the few commands that don't automatically get replaced.
    If you don't have the Pro version you have to find and replace all commands one at a time until all of them are replaced. When they are all gone delete the old device from your selection list.
    You need to verify that on the receiver network is set up correctly.
    Setup/Hardware/Network
    Don't use DHCP for the network address. use a fixed address that is in a area of reserved addresses in your router. Reserve above 100 for all your automation and security needs.
    Also make sure that you set up Network Standby to "On" to allow a power on signal through the network to power on the receiver.
    Also there is no area to set the Port to 60128. 60128 is a fixed default that can only be modified by the select few Onkyo Service Engineers.

    I Hope this helps,
    Phil

  • This was very helpful when I just upgraded from a TX-NR series to a TX-RZ series. Every time I used the old commands, it would lock up my Ethernet control port and I had to reboot the unit until I got all the commands replaced.
    Crazy!
    Thanks for posting the info!
