SOURCE: HDMI only for video and sound through regular audio input

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.

Why did I lose the video signal from the receiver to the TV?


I assume you have tried both hdmi cables from box to tv. If both works good.Cconnect to amp. Connect cable box also on other hdmi inputs like bd, dvd, etc to make sure the spesific port is not faulty. If still no picture try to lower hdmi video display on cable box. You amp may not be able to display the higher resolution.

Wont receive digital channels after scan non found


Hi Patrick,

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.

If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.

Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna and a broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.

I hope this helps!

I just purchased a roku streaming stick HDMI. I'm suppose to plug it into the surround sound HDMI (in) and then plug another HDMI (out) to the TV. The problem is, the receiver only has 1 HDMI port (ou


I hear you. Don't modern, inexpensive products just tick you off? Here's the solution. You leave it plugged into the the TV in HDMI 2. Because the receiver only has an HDMI out connection, you will have to use the digital output from the TV(usually an Optical cable), and plug it into any input on the receiver that has an Optical input. When you switch to that input on the receiver, you should be set, however, if you still have no sound, most AV receivers have assignable inputs. You may have to go to the audio menu on the receiver, and reassign that particular input as digital, and not analog. If you need more assistance, it would be best to visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. and contact me there.Thank you.

This sounds like a basic setup, so correct me if I made any wrong assumptions.

You have 2 "output" devices: a Roku and a cable box. Both have HDMI outputs.

You have 1 "input" device (your TV) that has 2 HDMI inputs available.

So, you need one HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your TV. Remember what HDMI port it's connected to - the back of your TV probably says "HDMI 1" and "HDMI 2" or similar. That's the "input name" of your TV.

Connect your Roku to your TV with another HDMI cable.

Now turn on your TV and use the remote to change between the inputs. Most remotes have a button that says INPUT or SOURCE (or sometimes a dumb little icon with no writing). If you press that it should change inputs. Usually, each time you push the button will cycle to the next input, so sometimes you have to hit it a bunch of times until the on screen menu shows the input you want. Most TVs will automatically switch to the selected input after a few seconds, so you don't have to push any buttons on the remote to tell the TV to change inputs.

If "at the same time", you meant actually watching both Roku movies and your cable at the same time, you are talking about a TV feature usually called "picture in picture". That should be possible, but will depend very much on your TV. I'd suggest checking your TV manual, or calling the company's 1-800 number and asking them to talk you through it.

WE JUST BOUGHT ROKU , HOOKED IT UP , CAN'T GET ANYTHING ELSE TO COME UP


Hi,

You must match the TV's input connections and the Roku output on your remote. This means if the Roku's output is connected to your TV's "HDMI 2" (or A/V 2, etc.), you must be able to select HDMI 2 (or A/V 2, etc) on the TV - either with your remote or pressing a button on the TV itself.

Sometimes, the TV will skip over unused inputs when it was first set up. This is done to reduce the number of button presses to go from say "HDMI 1" to "HDMI 4" by programming OUT the HDMI 2 & HDMI 3 choices.

You'll need to program IN the input that your TV uses to connect the Roku if it isn't already available. You MUST connect cables properly if not using HDMI. RGB is Red-Green-Blue and must be connected to RGB jacks at the Roku and TV for a picture and the the White & Red (left and right) audio must connect the the corresponding Red / White audio jacks - or it will provide strange results.

Make sure the power plug is connected to an outlet that is ON and connected to the power jack on the Roku box itself. Unless you have a defective Roku box or TV, it SHOULD work. You can try using a different HDMI or A/V jacks on the TV to determine if it is the TV jacks or not.

Good luck!

HDMI signal cuts out for a few seconds constantly from receiver to television. It does it when switched to cable box and the roku box. Onkyo TX-SR606 Scientific Atlanta Cable box thru HDMI Roku Box...


Mine did the same thing where the screen would go black for a few seconds and then the picture and sound came back. I would try (1) switch HDMI cables, (2) try a different HDMI input in the back of the receiver, (3) try different input in the back of the TV. None of these seemed to work with mine. I finally ended up running the cable box direct to the TV and only run the audio through the reciever via coax or digital. No more problems. I think the HDMI inputs in the back of the reciever have a problem continuously carrying the signal if it is the leaset bit weak.

Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound Speakers


The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.
