Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

I have a 37" Sony Bravia KDL-37XBR6 that I purchased in July 2008. I also have a Time Warner HD cable box that also has a built in DVR. The HD cable has been connected to the HDMI 1 port. It worked just fine for awhile but then I began losing the cable signal. The TV displayed a warning that the HDMI port I was using had lost its signal and that i should change to a different HDMI port. I switched the cable to the HDMI 4 port and it worked fine for a couple of days and then I lost the connection again. I have now connected the HD cable to the HDMI 3 port and it's working. Any idea what's wrong?

Hello, There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly  recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.

How do I connect to my Sony Bravia KDL-46S4100 TV using HDMI?


First you must be sure you have HDMI service from your service provider. When you do have HDMI service you must have HDMI cables for connection. The ends are a flat fitting nothing like the standard round cable fittings. They can be purchased at any retailer that handles electronics. They are quiet pricy as compaired to standard cable connections.

No dish network sound through denon 1609 receiver


check the setting for the HDMI connection at the Denon you may have to assign the HDMI audio setting also on the front of the Denon while in the DVR mode press the input mode button on the front of the Denon to select auto and if that doesn;t give you sound you will have to connect a cable from the DVR optical.coaxial or analog audio output to the Denon and setup for that type of audio connection

How to Connect HDMI Components with AVR 3805 as Hub


In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:

Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.

Onkyo HT R510 is broadcasting all digital and 5.1 from the cable box as pcm


Chances are that Time Warner is just plain wrong. That's what you get with free tech supp....oh, uh right. scratch that.

Your receiver seems to be receiving a 2-channel digital audio signal (PCM) from the cable HD box. With this type of input signal, you can't select Dolby Digital on the receiver.

If you have a Scientific Atlanta 8300 (or a closely similar model):
Press [Settings] button on the remote twice. This will open the General Settings menu. Go to "Audio: Digital Out" and the select Dolby Digital (by hitting [-> Move Right]).

If you have another type of cable box, just review the settings menus until you find something relevant to digital audio out and avoid PCM, stereo or "down conversion", but look for Dolby Digital, DTS or "All".

Please keep in mind, that when connecting devices via HDMI cables, your box may decide it's smarter than you and reset the format of the digital audio back to PCM. This is some possibility of this occurring if the cable box or TV is unplugged and plugged back in.

If you have problems, add the cable box make and model and let me know.

use component audio to the HDTV and optical audio to your KLH reciever. The component and optical are always active at the same time. I work for TWC if you have more questions.

Sounds like a poor grounding issue between the units OR maybe they're not as compatible as the Mfg's say.

Could be a bad HDMI cable also. Most are made in the land of Nanking

HDMI f/ dvd, dvr, receiver and tv


best set up if you have all hdmi is to have all your components go into the receiver ie. hd cable box, dvd etc. by using the hdmi output from the player(s) to the hdmi input to the receiver. next use one hdmi cable from the receiver to the tv then your laughing.

good luck
