Check these things:1. Is your XBOX360 using HDMI and COMPONENT CABLES?2. If you do have COMPONENT CABLE plugged in then my best bet is you're trying to play XBOX360 with 1080p which COMPONENT CABLES do not support.3. You may need to get an adapter(NOT RECOMMENDED) or just unplug COMPONENT CABLE (RECOMMENDED)lol. Note:XBOX360 will restart itself when you switch between the two or even if you turn off and on, your TV. My advice is to use one or the other :) Hope this helps TEEMAN
The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading. It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers. All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path. Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats. Your service person was wrong.
The STR-DG510 carries video only over the HDMI port. Technically, this is a "pass-thru" port. Most older receivers are engineered to operate this way. Why? I don't know. You MUST provide the audio connection using a separate TOSLINK or RCA cable from the program source to the receiver while your video is connected via the HDMI port.
Stick to IT work, MSOFT IT pro. I got smart and bailed out being an IT guru. I got better things to do than screw around with the idiotic nonsense of Microsoft operating systems and applications being a thing of fashion rather than being useful and practical.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
The connection order can be a key issue as to whether or not the HDMI
signals will pass through the system. For best results the receiver
should be turned on first, then the source device(s) and then the
display. The reason for this has to do with getting the equipment to
handshake properly for the HDCP protocol.
If HDMI video will not pass through your receiver, you may with to just connect the xbox using the component cables. Since component will pass through 720p and your TV is 1080i you should expect the same qualtiy and a more crisp picture.
