Question about Marantz Audio Players & Recorders
Twice now my nearly new Marantz 1604 receiver has ceased to send an HDMI signal from my Comcast cable and Tivo to my Samsung TV. I was told to update the firmware by the store I purchased it from. This seemed to work the first time (about 2 weeks ago) but today I again successfully updated the firmware without getting my picture back. The setup works fine when I connect the Tivo directly to the TV, so it isn't the cable or Tivo.
Sounds like your digital board is going bad. Is the unit still under warranty?

SOURCE: Analog RCA input to HDMI output?
You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

The posabilities is power amplifier on your reciever is bad,
replays reciever or repair it.More likely this is IC amplifier located on the main board of the reciever

Onkyo service told me, the second timethat I called them, that there is a known HDMI handshake issue with Motorola and Atlanta Scientific cable boxes. The only solution, and it was a solution, is to connect the box through the HDMI 1 port ONLY. All the other (2,3,4) result in blinking/dropping of signal. I did this, changed the cable/satelilte setting to HDMI 1 and all is well.
