Question about Onkyo TX-SR804 7.1 Channels Receiver

1 Answer

Losing digital video signal

I recently starting losing the digital signal for my HDTV from the Onkyo receiver. It started with the 3 prong RGB cable. So I changed it to the HDMI cable. But the signal is "lost" in the receiver. When I hook up the HDMI directly from cable box to the TV, all is fine. Help.

    Not sure what model I have but the same exact thing happens to me.  Wasn't sure what the issue is but it appears now that it is my receiver.

    I have the Onkyo TX-SR805 and have had it for two years and now the video keep going out on my HDMI, sound is still there, but no video. There seems to be some kind of short on the video relay to the output. Have not had it fixed yet, so can't give any answers.

    did this solve your problem. My HDMI video out first is "incompatible" to the TV, then when the Onkyo warms up, it is wavy the the picture is fine.

    Any thoughts or advice?

Onkyo receiver is not starting up hdmi from receiver to tv


run an HDMI cable from TV direct to DVD or other HD source instead of going through Onkyo. If it works, you have a bad HDMI output on the Onkyo. If not you may have a bad cable or a bad port on TV. Then try a different HDMI input on TV.

You don't name the model but if there's asettign for audtomatically selecting digital vs analog when both are attached it's losing the digital signal and automatically switching to the analog feed. Find it in the manual. lacking a setting, it prefers digital over analog and will switch to analog on digital signal loss.

Analyze what source(s) are involved and investigate WHY you're losing the bitstream. Optical cables must be run with smooth loose bends so the light strength is not compromised.

Onkyo tx-sr702 sound cuts out when pausing, then starting a recording on DVR or changing HDTV channel


That would be a function of your Cable/DVR dropping its digital bitstream output, wouldn't it?

My Pioneer does the same thing when I switch channels on my cable box or ANY sources. The receiver has to resync with the new bitstream, buffer it, figure it out and sort out the audio channels. Sounds like normal operation to me.

Hello, There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly  recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.

Ipod Dock connection


The Red, green, blue from this adaptor cable

go into any of the RGB inputs on the Onkyo

The R/W go into the corresponding inputs for audio, Red and White.

One thing to note,

IF you are running one source RGB like you want to do,
you may have to monitor output the video of the amp RGB to the TV, most of these amps do not like to mix HDMI with anything else.

So If you have one HDMI going out to the TV, this solution will not work. You should look at the manual for the Onkyo regarding what paths can pass at the same time. There is usually a small disclaimer in the HDMI section.

Hope that solves your question.

Component Video losing sync with too much White signal


I had this exact same issue. I tried two different component AV switches, and shorter cables to prevent signal loss, but any time there was too much white on the screen, the video still lost sync. Plugging the sources directly into the TV solves this problem, but since I have a DVD player, a game console, etc, this was not acceptable. The way I resolved it was to (sadly?) buy an expensive component AV switch that can support the bandwidth without losing the signal.
I wound up spending the extra money on a Key Digital 4x1 component switch. It is much more expensive, but it works.
