Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
I can choose between 3 HDMI sources HDMI 1/Coax 2 | HDMI 2/OPT 1 | HDMI 3/OPT2 Problem is, I receive video signal from HDMI (1), but audio signal from 6CH Direct. If I choose 6CH on the remote, it also drops the HDMI source. Then I have audio, but no video. Weird thing is, it states I should do exactly this in the manual to a similar device(link below). I lost mine and this remote looks the same as mine. Might it be somehow possible to setup a HDMI 1/6CH Direct ? http://www.harmankardon.com/resources/Brands/harmankardon/Products/ProductRelatedDocuments/en-US/OwnersManual/AVR_142_OM%20(English%20EU).pdf

DVI does NOT support sound unlike HDMI. Hopefully your PC has a Co-axial S/PDIF digital output. If not you might want to spend the $50 and buy a nice one from Creative. Modern motherboards are even coming with HDMI built-in but that's NOT your situation. I use a 15" DVI to HDMI cable but you are probably using an adapter and the a regular HDMI cable. Get co-axial digital audio cable of the right length and connect it to the co-axial inputs (they're in the upper corner). Use the remote's set-up button and select the "Digital Input" option. This is very powerful. You can assign any of the Optical or Co-axial inputs to any associated device.
I have my PC as Video 3 with sound coming in via HDMI which I assign under the "HDMI Video" menu and sound under the "Digital Input" as "Coax1". I use "Coax2" for the DVD player that lacks an optical output. If you use regular analog you are screwed as you found out. I usually use the headphone jack and an extension cable with the Computer and watch on it's monitor.
All HDTV sets are **** compared to a decent computer monitor. The deliver MUCH clearer video and much higher resolutions that shitty the 1080 HDTV maxes out at. ATSC is **** compared to a PC. Grated, cable is junk compared to ATSC at 1080i but that's another story. Yet, comparing ATSC to a computer is like comparing NTSC or digital cables' crappy 480i with ATSC at 1080i. It that much greater. At least 720p is wide screened unlike 480i garbage that's most of Comcast's "HD" digital junk.

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.

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.

easiest fix is to take all hdmi straight to tv. then come out of tv with optical cable to your receiver. that way what ever your watching will automatically be sent to the receiver thru optical. you even will get dolby dig. also you can have audio from your tv when you dont want to use your surround. keeps receiver on one input also.

Some Onkyo receivers are known to have HDMI issues (it has faulty capacitors). The first thing to do is to reset the receiver.
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR] button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button (see page 96 of the manual).
If that doesn't work it will have to go in for repair to have the HDMI board replaced.
