Question about Onkyo TX-SR803 Receiver
I have my ps3 plugged into my onkyo 705 receiver with an hdmi cord and i get sound, but no video.
I have tried an optical cord going from the ps3 to the receiver with the an the hdmi going from the ps3 to the tv, then i get the video but no sound
I have a similar setup and am having problems of my own, but i've got it somewhat working at the moment.
I have the TV connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI output port.
I have the PS3 connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI input port 1.
I went on the receiver and followed the instructions in the manual to setup the DVD function on the receiver (i chose to call my ps3 a dvd) to use HDMI-1. I can't remember the button combination as i'm not at my hosue right now, but it was in the HDMI section of the manual (page 44 on my manual). Essentially I had to tell the receiver to enable HDMI for the DVD function rather than being defaulted to "No". At that point, with the default ps3 setup, I was able to get video to pass through.
Next, i went into the video options on the ps3 and changed it to 1080p (since my tv supports that).
Where I"m having my problem is that the sound from the ps3 outputs directly to the TV and doesn't output on my receiver for some reason.
How I've rigged that to work is to take the HDMI to RCA cable that came with my PS3 and i plugged in the Red and White wires on the back of the receiver in the DVD section of inputs. At that point the sound comes through the receiver.
What I don't know how to do and would really like to know is how to get the sound to output on my receiver via HDMI only and not with the extra cable.
Anyway, if i'm making sense above and you follow that, you should be up and running (but maybe not in an optimal configuration).
Let me know if you ahve any questions.
Also, if anyone knows the solution to my issue, i'm all ears.
