Question about Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver

2 Answers

Onkyo 876 with hdmi from blu-ray sound is fantastic video poor

Please note i have had to use the wrong product details in the Product box as there is no defualt for a 876 and it will not let me enter it as a valid product?. My new tx -sr 876 is wonderfull sound wise but when passing video through and then back to tv via hdmi the picture is far worse than when I run the hdmi direct from the blu-ray player to the tv, I have tried this and used the optical to send sound to the onkyo but opyical will not support dts master audio etc, I have even got an hdmi splitter and split the signal into two - one to the tv and the other to the onkyo, when I do this there must be some sort of compatibility problem as the onkyo has only once let this process work on all the other occasions it will not play master audio and only 5.1 dts/ dolby just as if it were connected to optical or coax! also the picture quality via the spliter is just as poor. Also when I connect HDMi to the onkyo and set the blu-ray to 24 fps the onkyo closes down and the blu-ray player reverts back to 60fps - but when i connect the blu-ray direct to the tv and do this it asks me if i want to keep the settings which is what it should do. Now I am realy pulling my hair out - I have tried everything I can think of ( but I am no expert) is there any settings on the onkyo that i should alter or have I purchased somthing that had a lot of hype but in fact is not realy up to the job? Any help that you can give would be so very greatfully appricated. Simon.

Get a THX video set up disk (some movies have them on) and read the Onkyo manual for video setup between source and target. I have the BD35 Blu ray and a Panasonc 37" plasma, the pic via the amp was a bit off before the 4 hours of tweaking but now looks fab, after the process tweaks the sound sync needed a bit of work to get it all synched up but it is really worth the effort.

No sound on anything on the onkyo 626


It will shut down if you have the speaker wires touching, or the wrong polarity of your connected speakers. Check the wiring and connect one speaker at a time. (turn off to connect)

I cannot get video signal from my Samsung p1590 Blu Ray player via HDMI to pass through my Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver. I get video if I connect Blu Ray player directly to TV, and have tried all HDMI ports...


I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:

I would write them via email here:

However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:

(seems you may have to assign the digital input)

http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/QuickHookup/TX-SR606_QSS_En_A.pdf?CFID=918117&CFTOKEN=40624545&jsessionid=f0306ea8a0d68bb60a49102e3e5510576756


Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

I would like to hook up my components without having to turn on the receiver to watch tv from DVR or Cable if possible. I have Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 HD Cable DVR w/HDMI out, Samsung TV w/HDMI ,...


You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

What Blu Ray to buy for ONKYO TX-NR801 for Dolby TrueHD, etc???


Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals.  The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV.  In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal.  Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo.  In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching.  This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV.  This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver.  That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.
