Question about Harman Multimedia AVR 745 Receiver

2 Answers

PS3 I am using HDMI input 1 for my PS3. But the picture is very grainy and color distorted. I have tried bypassing the video processor but no change. When the PS3 is connected directly to the tv (sony 50A2000) the picture is perfect. Any suggestions? Thanks, Justin

Thanks thats what the technician told me after months of chasing after them. I hope they do come up with an upgrade because this just a big waste of money otherwise.The only reason i went for the product was because it had hdmi, i didnt think that it wouldn't be able to channel 1080p images ... i mean when faroudja is turned of it should be able to...but no! very shocking, really put me off harman...denons the way to go go.

Avr 745 HDMI only output 1080i not 1080p. Your PS3 is capable of 1080p. You have to adjust your PS3 to 1080i then your screen will work. I hope Harman will come up with the upgrade for HDMI that can output 1080p otherwise you have to suffer or stuck with 1080i. Hope this will solve your problems.

    I had a AVR 745 too. I loved the sound it produced. But the only downside about this AVR is the HDMI output at 1080i not 1080p. I hope in the future they will upgrade the software but I have doubt that they won't have it because what I heard was that you have to change the hardware too in order to get 1080p. Keep your fingers cross, they might come up with the solution.

I have a Hyundai rear television HY5111W.I noticed that picture became distorted then disappeared. Can you help me fix it


Hello

Watching standard cable on an HDTV can be quite a shock; the images are likely to be in a smaller aspect ratio, and have grainy or pixelated distortions. Additionally, the use of non-HD compatible devices, such as a DVD player, VCR, or older gaming system, will produce a less than stellar picture.

If you've changed the aspect ratio or your television, or have changed the zoom in or out, you may be encountering distortion that would otherwise not be noticeable. Setting the picture to a 1:1 ratio and turning off any overscan can help ensure a better quality image.

If you're using a system that supports HD, such as a Blu-ray player or an HD-compliant gaming system without the use of an HDMI cable, the image may be distorted. HDMI cables transmit both HD quality digital images and sound over one cable, and provide the best possible picture A/V signals.

No picture when hooking component through receiver. Get sound but no picture. Tried to put ps3 in input 1, 2 and 3. Tried multiple cables as well


with Denon you have to go into the menu and "assign" the inputs.

You have to select if you are using HDMI, s-video composite etc.

If your unit has upconverting remember that it will upconvert a s-video signal to HDMI but not the other way around.

HDMI is a digital signal composite, s-video etc are analog therefore you could not use the HDMI output from your PS3 but then use the red, blue green composite outputs from your receiver to run to your tv.

Grainy picture on LG 50PC5D plasma


Did you try another HDMI cable?

Did you try another DVD player?

If the above try-outs does not work for you, then the fault is most likely with the HDMI input processor area. For this the set will require service.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.

Hdmi


I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.

With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.
