Re: onkyo upconversion problem

This may be due to a limitation of the Faroudja DCDi chip used in the Onkyo receivers. See the Onkyo FAQ:

Re: onkyo upconversion problem

I have a dvd player connected via component and I'm having the same problems. Manual via the On Screen Menu - Set the DVD input to "---" and the signal will be upconverted and sent via the HDMI out. This doesn't work for me so I might have other problems but if you haven't tried it, give it a shot.

I am trying to connect a DVD player with analog composite video connection with output to HDMI output. Audio works fine, however no video signal detected. Connected to front AUX connection and verified...

I would like to prove the video connector from the DVD to Aux (or wherever) works without upconversion to HDMI. Connect your monitor to the receiver's composite Out jack and see what happens with the DVD video.

Read and interpret the discussion on pages 22 and 100 very carefully to make sure nothing else is assigned to whichever video input path you choose for the DVD. Then try it somewhere else to see if that changes anything.

With Cable connected to the rx-465 input, I'm not getting HDMI output to a Samsung plasma TV. With DVD HDMI input I get HDMI output to the TV. Any suggestions on what I'm missing. Thanks, Greg

is the cable connection hdmi? is the unit capable of upconversion to hdmi, if you use a component connection? probably not. if it is capable of upconversion, check your input menu settings

Connecting a wii to an Onkyo TX-SR607 7.2

I am experiencing issues like this although with a VCR connected with analog video. I added a BluRay DVD player and all of a sudden I lost my video upconversion from my VCR. I am going to try to reset the receiver to see if this fixes the problem. If not, I don't think it is the receiver issue, I think it may be the fact that enorder for video to pass through HDMI, allot of criteria needs to be met. Certain Handshakes need to happen, especially with the HDCP issues. Most likely I will connect a separate video cable to my Plasma and use a secondary input on the Plasma for the VCR signal. You may want to purchase the Component Video adapter for the wii system as this will provide you with at least 480p and your receiver should not have an issue passing the signal over the HDMI output. Good luck and give me an update.

Onkyo TX-SR606 getting no sound from HDMI sources on speakers. I have a motorola cable box and a panasonic DMP BD-35K blueray player both attached to the SR606 via HDMI cables (HDMI3 and 1 respectively)...

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.

HDMI connection with Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Disc Player

Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

Ps3 and onkyo receiver


I have a similar setup and am having problems of my own, but i've got it somewhat working at the moment.

I have the TV connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI output port.

I have the PS3 connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI input port 1.

I went on the receiver and followed the instructions in the manual to setup the DVD function on the receiver (i chose to call my ps3 a dvd) to use HDMI-1. I can't remember the button combination as i'm not at my hosue right now, but it was in the HDMI section of the manual (page 44 on my manual). Essentially I had to tell the receiver to enable HDMI for the DVD function rather than being defaulted to "No". At that point, with the default ps3 setup, I was able to get video to pass through.

Next, i went into the video options on the ps3 and changed it to 1080p (since my tv supports that).

Where I"m having my problem is that the sound from the ps3 outputs directly to the TV and doesn't output on my receiver for some reason.

How I've rigged that to work is to take the HDMI to RCA cable that came with my PS3 and i plugged in the Red and White wires on the back of the receiver in the DVD section of inputs. At that point the sound comes through the receiver.

What I don't know how to do and would really like to know is how to get the sound to output on my receiver via HDMI only and not with the extra cable.

Anyway, if i'm making sense above and you follow that, you should be up and running (but maybe not in an optimal configuration).

Let me know if you ahve any questions.

Also, if anyone knows the solution to my issue, i'm all ears.

If it is me and I am spending that kind of money, it is going to be sick, os here is sick. 7.1 dolby surround and 1080P HDMI, 135W per channel, and right now if you go to, it is normally $500.00 bt for right now it is only $449.00. But if you put this in, be prepared to buy a PS/3 as your next investment (Th best way to get Blu-RaY at an affordable price, plus many other features) and an upconvert DVD layer, which is only about $100.00 or less today. Then you better get ready to hear from your neighbors and the cops, because they are going to think a war has broken out in your place. Enjoy, I play movies that the sound is just so realistic, I hate to leave the house anymore. Also, remember, speaker placement is key, so know the optimal environment for your system and if you need one, I may be able to hook you up with a system room tuning DVD for next to nothing. This will allow you to setup your system and place your speakers optimally for your environment. good Luck.

Denon AVR 887 Upconversion With Wii

I have this hookup and it's working almost perfectly:

Wii --component--> Avr-887 --HDMI--> Sharp LCD TV

Sometimes the pictures don't show up during start up, but I figured it was (probably) due to Sharp's HDMI handshake issue, so I turned the TV off and then on, everything works.
