Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

Hi, This is the first time I am using this and I appreciate your time. I have just purchased a TX SR806 for my home theatre and it works wonderfully, except for a rather annoying problem or two I am experiencing. 1) When I run the Foxtel (Australian cable network), I sometimes lose the signal and the screen goes blank while it is "processing". I initially thought it must be the cable set top box and signal coming from that. However, when I try and run the Wii game console, the same thing happens. Oddly enough, this problem does not happen when I run a DVD, there is no picture interruption at all. I am using a high quality HDMI cable from the amp to the projector. I thought it migt be a loose connection to the projector and even though it seems loose, there is no interruption when playing a DVD as I mentioned above. 2) In all modes except DVD playback, the picture size "jumps" on the screen, from a mid size to a large size (although it doesn't fit the entire 110" screen). I understand that the cable picture is not designed to fit the entire screen, but the picture size should not jump between mid size and larger size. Is this a problem with the amp or more to do with the projector (it is an Optama)? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards, Laurie

Replace the HDMI cable, and buy a good shielded/gold connectors one , that often sort out the problem.

HDMI cables are pretty "glitchy" - I scoured Onkyo's website, and they did not have an HDMI-related upgrade (or any upgrade for that matter) for your receiver. Most likely the projector is at fault in combination with that particular receiver - usually requires a software upgrade if the projector is capable of receiving such upgrades (does your projector have a USB port on it anywhere?). There were certain Philips, Magnavox, and other televisions that experienced an HDMI jump like you are describing. Optoma does not have information on their website regarding that particular issue, but it is worth giving them a call (although I didn't see an Australian support number). If possible, switch to a component (red, green, blue) cable connection - you will get very nearly the same quality (1080i) without the headaches.

First try just hooking up the wii, or cable directly to the projector to see if you still have the problem, then you will know if it is the projector or the receiver. If it is the receiver try a replacement of the same model. If its the projector it may have something to do with the resolution. Once I have more information I will be able to assist you further if need be. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,
Lee

    Does it only change size once? Depending on the input or does it "jump" several times back and forth or something. Also what is the exact model of your projector. try hooking up the wii and cable directly to the projector first to make sure if the problem is with the projector or receiver.
    thank you,
    Lee

Try running the audio from each video source (NOT the TV, which is an output, not a source) to the HTR digitally so you'll get the best mutichannel sound possible. Then you can turn the TV speakers (assuming it has them) off for hi-end watching.

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 reciver just shutdown then went into standby mode. Will not power back on. How do I fix this problem?


What do you mean by standby mode? Do you hear the power relay switch clicking constantly, or does it just click once and turn off? In any case, it could be a faulty power relay. I just sent in my TX-SR806 for warranty repair recently, and it ended up being just that.
