Precautions for TX-NR708 Firmware Update

  • Updating the firmware and adjusting the settings will be done automatically, but may take some time to complete. Please follow the procedures as instructed when you update. Note that the update may fail, or cause problems for your A/V receiver, if you do any of the following:
  • Pull out the A/V receiver’s power cord;
  • Interrupt the power supply to the A/V receiver (e.g. if the breaker is tripped or if there is an electrical outage);
  • Insert or remove the LAN cable from a device in your network when updating over a network;
  • Insert or remove a USB memory device from the A/V receiver when updating via USB;
  • Operate components connected to the A/V receiver via HDMI, such as a TV or a recording device.
