Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
I have an Onkyo tx-sr606 and an older rear projection Sony LCD. I am running all hdmi cables through the receiver and then into the TV. very randomly I lose picture. screen flashes black then turns to static snow then back to black then normal again. Happens randomly and usually for no more than 3 to 5 seconds but is highly frustrating.
If you must use HDMI, you need to run it directly to the TV from the source for video and use optical or coaxial digital for audio thru your receiver. The problem is HDMI firmware (which is not upgradeable) you have either version 1.1 or 1.2 or 1.2a. All have issues. Three years and running and HDMI still can't get it right! In techno terms it's a DHCP compliance issue (in the real world it's copyright protection) Unless your TV is larger than 50", you can run Component without any visual loss, the human eye can't detect it. Also, if your TV is older, chances are it's 1080i not 1080p, so, if you set your TV to 720P, which is the native resolution of 95% of all TV channels now, and it looks better than 1080i
(1080i = 540p)
I've been doing Home Automation now for 15 years and I've had the luxury of dealing with VGA, DVI, and now HDMI.They have all had issues. Personally I'm just as happy with Component 720P, just use good cables. Hope this helps the pain! If you need any more help, just post a comment and I can help some more.
