Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

1 Answer

Pressing input selector button changes sound only, not vision.

Hi There,

I have a Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver which was working perfectly until my 8 month old daughter got a hold of the remote.

The problem that now exists is I cant successfully use the input selector buttons to alternate between CBL/SAT and DVD. When watching CBL/SAT, pressing the DVD button will activate sound only, not vision. In order to get vision I must turn the recievier OFF then ON again and I get both sound and vision.

The same happens in reverse. Once I am on DVD, pressing the CBL/SAT button will return sound but not vision. In order to get vision the receiver must be turned OFF then ON again.

While both work fine once the receiver is turned OFF then ON, I should be able to simply press the input selct buttons to transition between both easily.

I am using Red, Black and White inputs and I have NOT touched the cabling as I know there is nothing wrong with this set up.

I have spent two hours running through different things in the manual and have no idea how to fix the issue.

You're right, it definitely shouldn't be doing that! i know that your cables are probably ok, but it sounds like you might have a little software glitch or something going on. i would highly recommend upgrading your cables to HDMI. not only will you have fewer wires to deal with, you will also be upgrading both your sound and your video quality. in addition, the HDMI connections should be totally seperate from the other connections internally. you might luck out and find that only the analog side of things was afflicted. check out Newegg.com. you can get a 6' cable for $10.

only other option is to send the unit in for service.

No sound from new sony uhd tv on the Onkyo sr606 receiver when watching smart content like netflix.


Hi AB, best way to accomplish this would be to go from the TV's audio output to any open audio input on the 606 and just be sure that you assign the source to the input. If you require further assistance please feel free to give us a call at 800-229-1687, also note that we offer a trade in program if you are looking to upgrade to a newer receiver, please email me your current units serial number and I will advise if it qualifies for the program. You can email me at askOnkyo@us.onkyo.com, Thanks, JT

Onkyo ht-r960


I had the same problem at 1 year after purchase. I was upset. In addition to looking here, I also emailed the company. They took a month to get back to me, but their solution worked perfectly.

"Try resetting the unit by pressing VCR/DVR and the standby/on button at
the same time on the front of the unit while it is turned on. The unit
will display CLEAR and shut down. All settings will be erased. "

All my components connect without any problem now. Hope this helps.

Unsure of audio setting using Onkyo TX-SR606 connected to PS3


The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.
