Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
I cannot get the SR606 to upscale my Standard Def signals from Direct TY. I have a Nintendo Wii plugged in via Component and that upscales to 1080i, but my Standard Def Direct TV channels always show up as 480p. In the receiver menu I have Output Resolution set to 1080i. I was sold this receiver with the Salesman promising me it would upconvert this content.
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

My panasonic HDD/DVD and Onkyo606 will only pass through a TV 576p signal from the coax aerial using hdmi from the DVD to the 606 and then hdmi from the 606 to the TV. If I connect the Panny to the Onkyo 606 using component then the signal gets through to my Panny TV as a 1080i signal. I can see in the Onkyo book that this is to be expected but I must admit to being confused because I thought that hdmi was the best connection in all cases.
