TV to Reciever Sound Problems

Whats up guys, I just got this new Onkyo HT-SR800 system, and I have everything hook up except I am not able to get any sound when my TV and DVD player are on, I have the HDMI cable hooked up from my reciever to my TV, another HDMI cable from reciever to cable box, and another one from DVD player to reciever. I am able to get picture, but no sound except from the TV speakers themselves. I know I have my speaker wires in properly because the FM radio is working fine. Please help if possible, hopefully this makes sense to someone.

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv

Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

Onkyo HT-SR800 won't turn on

If you call Onkyo directly, 201-785-2600, there is a procedure to "reset" the system, something like holding the power button on and holding down another button for a few seconds. Can't remember which, so I can't be sure, but try giving them a call.

Onkyo HT-SR800 the surround speakers are not blasting

I had the same problem and fixed it by manually setting the surround speakers changing the Level Cal to +12dB. You will immediately notice a significant increase in volume and may need to back down on the dB's. What a diffence it makes!

Cutting off and stayin in Stand by mode

To me it sounds like you might have blown a channel(s). The speakers that you are using with unit, did they come with it? If not you need to check the ohms of the speakers. It looks like the Onkyo HT-SR800 can only handle a minimum of 8 ohms. If your unit is under warranty definately send it in for repair

Tivo HD will not record when Onkyo HT-SR800 is off

Do you want to run all your cables thru the receiver? There really is no benefit for you to do this since that receiver doesn't handle HDMI audio nor do any kind of component to HDMI conversion. Might as well connect your tivo box directly to the TV with HDMI. You'll have to switch inputs on your TV between the cable box, but its not a big deal.
