I got an Onkyo TX-NR905 Receiver a couple of years ago that does not have the update via the ethernet port. Back then Onkyo was imported by B&W based in ChCh, and so I assumed that was where their service centre would be. Reading the forums on this one I could see that there were some updates that I should really get: Firmware, DSP's and HDMI.

I did a search the other day and discovered that Avalon Pacific Marketing now import Onkyo. So today I dropped it off at the service centre in Mt Wellington and can throw away the CD that I thought I would have to use to do the updates myself. Too scared of creating a brick!

If there was a service centre in Auckland all along then let me know. That way I can learn from my own lack of research.
