Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
I have my cable box set up as one of my sources on my receiver. They are connected by an HDMI cable. I am able to get a video signal through my tv but there is no sound coming from the speakers. This has never been an issue before. I checked my playstation 3 to see if the same thing was happening but i was able to get visual and audio with no problems. There seems to be some kind of issue between the cable box and receiver. Any help would be great.
The Playstation 3 automatically broadcasts video and audio through HDMI even when an optical audio cable is ran to the receiver. If your TV has an optical audio out, it's just best to run everything into the TV including audio, and then run the optical cable from the TV to the reciever. It's less confusing and less buttons/remotes you have to use when you want to change devices, i.e. Cable/PS3/DVD

Could well be the quality of your cables. if you have high end cables the consult a service agent. if you have the cables that came with the products, go and get some better ones.

AT THE START OF THE SET UP MENU CLICK ON IN/OUT ASSIGN.THEN MONITOR OUT APPERS,THEN HDMI NO,FLICK THIS TO ON.IFF YOU GET PICTURE AND NO SOUND GO TO THE HARDWARE SET UP AND DOWN TO HDMI AND SWITCH AUDIO OFF.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

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.

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.

if you go to the setup menu, hardware setup, hdmi, and turn the audio out: on it should work hope this helps
