All the Features You Need for Smooth, Immersive Entertainment
If you're in the market for a cutting-edge receiver, but are limited in terms of budget, look no further than Onkyo's HT-RC460. With eight HDMI® inputs and two outputs, this receiver integrates all your A/V components, decodes Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ formats, and supports 3D video. HDMI enables an ARC for TV with surround sound, and allows Quick Set-Up menus to be overlaid instantly mid-program. Analog video is upscaled to 1080p- or 4K with compatible display -by onboard Qdeo™ technology. An MHL/HDMI connects smart phones for display of 1080p videos and photos, and there's a USB for iPod® and iPhone®. InstaPrevue™ technology simplifies content selection, and you can control the home theater- including playback in Zone 2- with your iPhone or Android phone. Wireless-capable networking adds internet radio, audio streaming, and access to all your computer-based music collections. Audio performance is perfected with Audyssey 2EQ, Dynamic EQ®, and Dynamic Volume®. Dolby® Pro Logic IIz can expand stereo sources and 5.1 soundtracks to include additional Front Height channels. Keen pricing leaves room in the budget for a second subwoofer, allowing you to experience the astonishing depth and realism of an Onkyo 7.2-channel system.
| Free Apps: Seamless Control & Streaming |
The Onkyo Remote App 2 for iPod touch/iPhone∗¹ and Onkyo Remote for Android∗² and Kindle Fire provide an intuitive way to operate Onkyo network A/V receivers. Control input sources, adjust settings, and play audio stored in your device wirelessly (Android and Kindle Fire only) using the application's interactive graphical display. The remote apps are available separately as free downloads.
|Access Endless Music Possibilities |
Onkyo network receivers, which are also wireless LAN ready, have access to the most internet music content services, including: Pandora®, Slacker™, SIRIUS XM®, Last.fm, vTuner, Rhapsody, Spotify, and AUPEO!. You can even connect to DLNA servers on your network. Internet connectivity also makes firmware updates simpler than ever.
|Easy, Live Source Selection |
This AVR incorporates InstaPrevue visual port management technology, making input source selection much easier. InstaPrevue provides a live video thumbnail of the available content on your devices connected via HDMI. You no longer have to remember that your gaming console is connected to Port 3, or your BD player to Port 1, for example- you can see what's playing and choose accordingly.
| Direct Digital Connection: The Cleanest Your iPod Can Sound |
The front-panel USB port lets you play MP3 and AAC stored in an iPod/iPhone, and MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio files stored on a flash-memory device, and you can use the system's own remote for track selection and playback. Your music will sound much cleaner and clearer, as the audio signal is transported in digital rather than analog form through the direct digital connection.
| Watch Your Smartphone Content on TV |
The front-panel HDMI port is designed for the connection of mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using the new MHL standard. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on your HDTV with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound. Use the receiver's remote to control playback from your phone as it receives a handy recharge.
| The Onkyo remote is preset to control Apple TV. |
Have an Apple TV? Use it with your Onkyo Network AVR. It's all integrated; it all works together beautifully.
|Save Power With Hybrid Standby |
Hybrid Standby provides 'HDMI through' functionality while the receiver sleeps, so you don't have to fully power up to watch a Blu-ray or play a game using just your TV's sound. The receiver also maintains a local network connection when on Hybrid Standby mode, so you can switch the unit on at any time using the Onkyo remote apps for iPod touch/iPhone, Android, and Kindle Fire.
|Easy Access For Settings Changes |
The HT-RC460's overlaid On-Screen Display (OSD) feature makes changing the settings on your A/V receiver quick and easy. On-screen set-up menus appear over the video image you're watching so you can adjust the settings immediately, without having to stop the program and switch to a different screen to access menus.
|4k Upscaling: Astoundingly Accurate Detail |
On a compatible 4K wide-screen display, this receiver will upscale standard video sources, making your Blu-rays and DVDs pop with more cinematic detail than ever before. The versatile Qdeo video processor uses algorithms to enlarge to 4k the video you're playing, while also erasing video jaggies and feathering. The results are dazzlingly detailed images.

Top Customer Reviews
The HT-RC460 was as a 7.1 surround system. I did not set a second zone. Directly attached to it via HDMI were a TV, a satellite box, a WD media hub, a Blu-ray/DVD player and a gaming console with the last three having their own Ethernet connections. A security camera system was attached through a component video cable. The receiver was connected to the Internet via a Ethernet cable which in turn talks to a router over the power lines. The receiver and everything hard-wired to it were set to be operated with a Harmony universal remote control.
Right out of the box, Onkyo's receiver is not unlike the one (by Sony) I've been using for the past 4 years:

In getting the firmware to load, I learned a few things that might help others by making Oynko's instructions in the manual and on-line more clear:
One, the unzipped download consists of 3 files and a folder with 4 files, all adding up to about 71 MB.
Two, with just these unzipped items on a USB thumb drive, insert the drive in the front USB port of the HT-RC460 with the "Net" source selected.
Three, hit the "Receiver" button on the remote, followed by "Home"
Four, in the Home window select "USB"
Five, after the receiver recognizes the USB drive, return to "home" and select "update"
Six, in the update window, select "update from USB and stand back for an hour or so.
This unit gets 4 stars because it has fine features when it works; it loses a star for not shipping with updated firmware and for its poorly described update process.
I opened the box and noticed there was a bright yellow piece of paper that said you need to upgrade firmware before setting the unit up for the first time because apparently the firmware update also defaults all your settings. I ordered the Onkyo wireless adapter with the unit because I don't have network cabling near my TV. So I connected my components and powered the receiver on and saw it boot up and was immediately taken to the initial setup.. As instructed I planned on upgrading the firmware so I skipped as much of the setup as I could knowing that the unit would be defaulted, I got to the network portion of the setup process and punched in my wireless info, the receiver connected to my network, and then a message popped up about a firmware update. I clicked OK and the receiver downloaded and began upgrading the firmware. The upgrading process took about an hour to complete. Once the firmware updated you have to manually power cycle the unit.
After the reboot the another message came on the screen about a firmware update. I thought that was odd since the recevier was supposed to be defaulted, but I did it anyway. About an hour later the firmware update was completed and I rebooted it again and that was the final message about firmware updates.
I then tested things out. I was fairly impressed with the ease of setup of the receiver.Read more ›
Out of the box, I was really impressed with this receiver. It has a lot of features for the price. The microphone to automatically setup the speaker sound for your room configuration is key for all new receivers. Setup was very easy using the interface displayed on the TV. The firmware automatically updated after plugging in the ethernet cable.
My plans for this receiver was for it to be hooked up to my Home Theater PC, blu-ray player, and wii. I want to use HDMI Standby Passthrough to just pass the HTPC hdmi signal for a majority of the time. But when I want to get more sound or watch a movie, I could turn it on and select which input I wanted. For Passthrough, you can select in the menu the specific input to always pass through, or just pass the last hdmi input you had selected. Last is most ideal since I may want to turn it on, select the Wii, and then turn it off (I don't need surround sound for Wii).
HDMI Standby Passthrough Problems:
Something seems to be wrong in the firmware that if your tv and hmdi input has been off for a while, it can't lock onto it correctly when you turn them back on. If I turned off the TV/PC for an hour and then turned back on, HDMI standby passthrough was fine. However if they were off overnight, I had several issues when I would come to turn them back on. I have tried playing around with settings after reading onkyo support threads but nothing seems to make the standby work all the time.Read more ›
