Question about Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver
Hello i have just perchased a new onkyo 875 and have set it up.. i thought that the receiver would upscale (1080)any hdmi video source, but i understand that only comp connections can be upscaled, but i have used svideo and a digital audio cable and the sounds gr8 but i cant really see much improvment thro the upscale(1080p) well when i watch thro hdmi the pic is awsome on a hd channel on sky, but then i change to a sd channel and the receiver takes maybe 30 seconds to change ,and then sometimes it errors and i het hdcp(handshake) problems.. and when it does come thro it can be just blue screen and i have to change channel and then it picks up on the problem and changes...i am not verry impressed if this upscale is working:(
if i use svideo it changes between the channels perfectly no delay.
i am confused with this product and understand that it upscales svideo defently on the hd channels but i thought it would upscale all channels thro svideo? please any feed back to this would be great.. thanks from dave.w
ok the problem might not be with your receiver it is with your direct tv settings. Double check to make sure you go to the format and set it up to be fixed or 1080i whichever will give you the highest resolution. Check your manual for the direct tv receiver. If this is all correct for the DTV then you must go into the setup on the receiver and at hardware icon toward bottom check on that box, now goto the hdmi settings and make sure it is set to through. this will allow the best picture with no upscaling which will degregade picture for blu ray. so your direct tv will be only 1080i but very impressive. if you still want to upscale you can then you have to change the hdmi settings from before to upscale 1080p . I just hope that your dtv can output 1080i it will give a better picture than 480p even if both are upscaled to 1080p
Oh i forgot to ask if you are connected through hdmi to the tv. Hdmi is the only option for upscaling
