Onkyo tx-sr608 - when I Plug in HDMI from sky hd box to Onkyo I loose dolby digital sound from Sky input

The set up:(1) HDMI cable from Sky HD box to Onkyo,(2) Digital optical from Sky to Onkyo and (3) Onkyo OUT to TV HDMI1 or 2 (tried both just in case). Sky sound option set to: Dolby Digital Onkyo is set to CBL/SAT HDMI3 audio source for HDMI3 set to OPT1(tried 1 &2) also tried assigning a different HDMI(on Onkyo) to OPT1/2 but get the same result:- What is happening i.e. the problem: so when I put on a DD source i.e. A film in DD etc through sky and I have the Sky box directly to my TV I get Dolby Digital no problem but when I decide to run the SKY box though the onkyo i.e. take an HDMI from sky box to the HDMI on the onkyo the sound signal goes to normal TV LOGIC etc... that is to say the digital sound is lost and if I plug the HDMI back to the TV direct in HDMI1 or 2 I get the digital back again... this is driving me nuts!, I know I have a work around but why does it do this?

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

SOURCE: No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

SOURCE: 8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up

Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

I can't get my back speakers on when I'm watching TV in HDMI. I have a new TX-SR608


What is feeding the video/audio signals to your Onkyo receiver? Are you getting your input from a satellite receiver or cable set top box? Or are you just using you TV with a coax feed from a terrestrial aerial?

You need a receiver that will decode Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 if you want to use surround sound. If you are using your TV as the reveiver and it has that capability then the problem is probably the type of HDMI cable you are using. You need a cable that has 'audio return' - in other words it will feed the digital audio (from your TV receiver) to the Onkyo box. Some HDMI cables do not include 'audio return'.
Check what type of HDMI cable you have.

If you respond with answers to these questions I will be glad to provide more assistance.

Hello what is the best setting for ps3 slim when played through onkyo 608 pcm or bitstream at the moment it is saying multichanel on the amp if i change it to bitstream it says on the screen some audio...


Bitstream will pass the HD digital audio directly on to the receiver, in either DTS or Dolby format. This allows your receiver to decode these formats. The Onkyo TX-SR608 is capable of decoding all the new HD audio formats, and has quality Burr-Brown digital-analogue converters so it would be a shame not to use bitstream in my opinion.
Electing to output the sound as PCM will utilize the PS3's internal digital audio decoding, and I believe output a two channel analogue signal... which your receiver will then reprocess into simulated surround sound... not ideal really.

Sound skipping while playing Blu Ray


HI, make sure the audio out put on the ps3 is set to hdmi and set to stream dolby digital,aac, dts, etc,then set audio input on your 696 to hdmi,also check that audio out for hdmi is set to off in the hardware menu on your amp,if you still have problems use the optical out on the ps3 as the ps3 does not out put hd master audio or dolby true hd only pcm, you will still get dolby digital.

hope this helps.

What Blu Ray to buy for ONKYO TX-NR801 for Dolby TrueHD, etc???


Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals.  The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV.  In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal.  Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo.  In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching.  This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV.  This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver.  That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.

Receiver won't put out sound to LCD Sharp aquos


I have the same problem with my Sharp Lcd and Onkyo 804. I believe one problem is that the TV can not accept dolby digital or dts digital audio signals through HDMI. It will play sound if it receives a PCM signal through HDMI. You can try switching the type of signal on the cable box settings and on the dvd player. I switched to PCM and got sound through the TV and the receiver. The problem is that PCM is usually only a 2 channel signal and Dolby 5.1 will sound better through the surround sound theater system. I have not found an absolute solution to this yet, but I am willing to not get sound through the lousy TV speakers in order to get top notch sound through the Onkyo.
