Question about Onkyo TX-SR506 Receiver

HDMI connection with Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Disc Player

I just bought both of the Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Player and the TX-SR506s Onkyo receiver. The problem is the HDMI connection is not working. That is, I'm getting no vedio out of my Sony Projection TV. I called Onkyo tech support and we went through the same setup process even after re-setting to the Onkyo manufacturer settings. The Onkyo support person says there is a problem with the Panasonic, but I think it's a problem with the Onkyo receiver.
So I need to know which device is causing the problem so I can get this resolved.

    same problem here, but only with the Panny BDP10 and 30 not working with the Onkyo tx-sr606. NO HDMI video!

    I have the same problem with my DMP-BD35K. No video through an HDMI switch or my new Onkyo TX-SR806 but I get audio. If I plug it directly into the TV it works fine.

Problem: Video using HDMI works fine from the BluRay player directly to TV. However, there is sound but no video when the player is connected from the player through the receiver to the TV.

To connect from the player through the receiver to the TV, the player HDMI resolution must not be on ‘auto’. It must be set to a resolution that can be used by the TV. If it is left on ‘auto’, the player sends ‘1080p’ to the receiver. Unfortunately, if the player is turned on first; the player video resolution automatically reverts to ‘auto’.

The fix:
Using the BluRay player alone: Hook the HDMI cable to the TV. Using the BluRay player setup under ‘TV/Device Connection’ and then ‘HDMI Connection’ set the ‘HDMI Resolution’ to the highest resolution the TV can handle. Turn off the player. Hook the HDMI from the player to the receiver and then HDMI from the receiver to the TV. Turn on the receiver and TV first. Then turn on the BluRay player. There should be video. Never turn on the BluRay player before the receiver. Otherwise the above procedure needs to be repeated.

Using the receiver and the BluRay player: In the receiver set up under ‘Hardware Setup’ and then ‘HDMI,’ set the output resolution to ‘Auto.’ This is the only resolution that worked for me and gave me a picture on the TV. Using the BluRay player setup under ‘TV/Device Connection’ and then ‘HDMI Connection’ set the ‘HDMI Resolution’ to the highest resolution the TV can handle. You can then modify the receiver output resolution as needed. Never turn on the BluRay player before the receiver. Otherwise the above procedure needs to be repeated. I prefer this method to the ‘BluRay player alone’ method.
However, the “receiver and the BluRay player” procedure may not work for everyone.

Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

I have a Panasonic tx-40cx680b tv and a Panasonic DMP-BD75EB-K blu ray DVD player. When I play a DVD the screen is green, it's connected via an hdmi lead. Any ideas?

There are multiple HDMI inputs.
2 HDMI (side and bottom)
3 4K HDMI with HDCP 2.2 on the rear

Try connecting your Bluray player to the side or bottom input.

Here is a link to the specs

1080P video via HDMI generates awful interference

Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
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.
