Access to internal menu system for Onkyo TX-NR828 and similar
If access is available through NEEO currently, I'd value any guidance on how to make this work.
There are three different internal menus it would be good to be able to access:
- there is a general access menu that allows you to choose which of the Onkyo's internal features / services you want to use (e.g. the FM Tuner, or the DLNA interface). Currently you can access a single service by adding an instance of the Onkyo "Tuner" version of the driver - but no easy way from this (that I can find) to access the AVR's internal menu to change to a different service - presumably you have to add multiple 'tuners' if you want to have access to more than one such internal feature on the same brain.
- a second menu controls the sound processing modes and video processing modes during use of a service
- a third menu provides access to the 'general setup' features (e.g. adjust speaker balance for a 5.1 or 7.1 system)
As is normal for these postings, I'm able to do all these things 'out of the box' via my basic Harmony remote, so I don't imagine getting these features to work is hard - just disappointing that either they don't exist or are so obscured by the NEEO interface as to be hard to find.
As far as I can tell, Onkyo receivers have broadly the same internal controls across several generations, and so while this is specifically for an NR828, I suspect the same issues will exist on the whole class of Onkyo AVRs (and other similar products too I expect).
Anyhow, as noted above, any guidance on this would be valued.
