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 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 just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

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.

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.

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.

Onkyo TX-SR606 HDMI output issues


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.

True HD can only work with HDMI interface and is only available on some newer HD DVDs. Check the DVD to see if the True HD encoding is available.
