No Video Using HDMI connection, I have a Direct TV HD-DVR connected to the receiver and the receiver connected to my plasma TV. I cannot get a video on my TV. If I run the HDMI cable from the DVR to the TV it works fine.

Re: No Video

Have you gone through the menu to assign which signals the receiver recognizes?  I had to change the source when i switched to the Dish Network HD receiver.

I have an HD PVR (Explorer 8300) and have connected to my Samsung TV using HDMI cable. My question is can I connect my SONY STR DE605 receiver or do I need a new one?

Depending on your tv output, you shpuld be able to hook your TV to receiver via audio output. Running your video components through your receiver will not give you the best performance anyway. Run your HD DVR to TV the way you have it then, if it's possible to run audio out from TV, via, RCA, digital optical, etc., to your receiver. The sound will be transfered through the TV. You may also be able to utilize component out from your HD DVR and a separate audio cable.

I just purchased a denon avr-1610 receiver and I cannot get picture back to my tv through the hdmi. I have a starchoice dvr which is dvi to hdmi, I come out of my satelite into sat/cab then out of my denon...

One possible reason is the HDCP (copy-prevention)-encoded signal from the DVR, which will transmits through to one device (the receiver) but not to a second (the TV). As an experiment and a possible solution, try reconnecting the HDMI cable from the DVR directly to the TV (provided you have an extra HDMI input on it), and using the component-video or S-video plus either digital or analog audio outputs to connect your DVR to the receiver. If this works, I think that the HDCP is the problem and this is the only solution.
It may be a little inconvenient to remember to switch inputs on the TV as well as the receiver, but you could probably program your remote with a macro to do both. The component video (or, more likely, the S-video) is also the best possible video signal you can use for dubbing to any DVD recorders, if you have one connected to the same receiver. You can still keep the HDMI connected from your PS3 (or other BD/DVD) player to the receiver, and from there to the TV, since that does seem to work -- if you don't mind turning on the receiver every time you want to watch a BD or DVD. My recommendation, however, is to connect all your video signals directly to the TV via HDMI or component, and use the receiver only for audio, or for switching of lower-level video signals like S-video that you can use for dubbing. That way you can always check the DVR or BD or DVD quickly without powering up your receiver, which takes a few seconds and much more power.

1080P video via HDMI generates awful interference

Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.

I have a HDMI cable hooked between my Direct tv DVR receiver and my Samsung flat screen HD plasma tv. When I turn to Direct tv channels 100 or 200 the screen begins to flicker. My tv is 1080i. This is what...

If the TV just Flickers for a few Seconds then the Picture is Good and Stable, That is just the HDMI re-syncing often due to different signals from 480i to 1080i being broadcasted. If it continues to Flicker then check the options for Video set-up in your DTV menu. Make sure all available resolutions are checked to display or select AUTO if possible. TIP: NEVER Unplug or Plug in HDMI cables with the Power ON. This can Short out the HDMI Input leading to a Repair. Turn off All Units then plug in your cables, When ALL are in then hit the Powers.

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI

The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

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.
