Hook your Xbox to tv via HDMI, then hook TV to reciever through digital optical or composite cables. If you try to get your picture through receiver first, you may get picture and sound but, sound may be delayed and picture might not be the best. Bettter to run through tv first then provide sound to receiver.

I'd investigate the intervening video-carrying cables.

Consider whether you actually NEED to route video through the receiver in the first place. Is all that extra cable and 2 extra interconnections actually doing any good? Apparently not.

In my rig, I run high-end video only to my TV and high-end audio only to my receiver. No problemos.

Cant get equalizer to work with my receiver


This might work fish76, The EQ needs a in & out source to operate correctly? If you have audio device connected to an aux input disconnect that & connect the EQ to that audio device & then plug the EQ to the Sony receiver AUX input. The tape monitor is the most important source for hooking up an EQ device, so you are very limited on a total receiver or amp tonal connection source. The bottom line is you can only use the EQ if another audio source to plug into it & the EQ plugs to your pre-amp input on the back of your rec or amp

Receiver not taking commands from the remote


Point the remote at a digital video camera to see if you can see the small blue infared light comming from the end of the remote when you aim it at the camera and press a button. if you do see the light then your receiver has a system control problem I'm afraid. You see your eyes cannot see the infared light but the camera optics can. Good Luck
