Onkyo TX-SR606 HDMI output issues

Got my second Onkyo, returned the first unit because HDMI output didn't work with my Panasonic BD35 blue ray and my Hitachi rear projection. My Hitachi only is capable of 1080i and has DVI input. Onkyo manual say okay with DVI. When runing blue ray player video is out of sync or something. I tried to force output of Panasonic to 720p and set Onkyo to 720p but no success. When I check the Onkyo setting it reverts back to auto or through, same with my blue ray player. I guess HDMI signal senses monitor and adjusts settings but you would think I could fix these settings. Returned first unit thinking there was an issue, second unit performs the same. Check with cable box using HDMI into same input, no problems, so it appears there is some capabilty issue with my blue ray or monitor, not sure. Had Denon AV788 and it worked fine, just didn't like that Denon could not display setting menu in HDMI, you had to hook up the composite video to do this so I bought Onkyo on the great reviews.

I hate to return this a second time, there must be a way to get around the menu to get this correct I hope. HELP.

HDMI switching is an ongoing problem for the 606. A number of people are having the same problem. Mine is at the local repair shop and Onkyo has told them the part is on backorder until April. I would look at another brand or upgrade to a higher leval Onkyo.

I cannot get video signal from my Samsung p1590 Blu Ray player via HDMI to pass through my Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver. I get video if I connect Blu Ray player directly to TV, and have tried all HDMI ports...


I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:

I would write them via email here:

However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:

(seems you may have to assign the digital input)

http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/QuickHookup/TX-SR606_QSS_En_A.pdf?CFID=918117&CFTOKEN=40624545&jsessionid=f0306ea8a0d68bb60a49102e3e5510576756


Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I have a Onkyo TX-SR806 HDMI output does not work anymore. Tried switching HDMI cables. My component video output works.


Sounds like you may have a bad HDMI card my friend. I had an issue with my HDMI card that was causing blue dots to appear on the dark parts of the screen, when outputting 1080p over HDMI. This is a rather common issue, so it wouldn't surprise me if your HDMI board needs replacement - especially if you've ever experienced the infamous blue dot issue.

My Panasonic DMP-BD55 Blue ray won't palt together. Each works great by themself.


You might want to try re-setting the receiver. This will delete all of your settings... but helped me when I had a very similar issue w/ DMP BD35 and my onkyo sr606. After turning on the receiver, hold the VCR/DVR button and the on/standby buttons down simultaneously, until the display says "Clear". Now you will just have to set up all of the settings again

Onkyo TX-SR606 getting no sound from HDMI sources on speakers. I have a motorola cable box and a panasonic DMP BD-35K blueray player both attached to the SR606 via HDMI cables (HDMI3 and 1 respectively)...


Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.

No DTS-HDMA or Dolby TrueHD shown on display


DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD cannot be passed to your receiver via bitstream on the PS3. DTS-HDMA cannot be decoded either so you're out of luck there.
Dolby TrueHD can be decoded internally on the PS3 assuming your firmware is up to date. Set the Blu-ray HDMI output to PCM and you can then pass it to your receiver.
If this doesnt work, do a system update on your PS3.

Onkyo tx-sr606 can not get it to work w tv using hdmi cables


try using a HDMI cable connecting the receiver from the "out" to the tv, then allocate through the setup menu what you have connected, say a cable box by hdmi, you would go to cable/sat allocate the port "hdmi1 or coax 1" then return. If it is a dvd click on dvd then allocate eg: "hdmi 2" then return.
