I was having a simalar problem, what you have to do is go into a options menu that will come up on your tv screen and tell the reciever that you want it to put out and video through your hdmi cable.

How do I hook up my Apple TV to onyko 8050 receiver?


Hi Barry
AppleTV has 2 Outputs on the back. One is Optical for Audio Only and requires a Toslink fibre optic cable to get the good quality audio into the 8050 receiver via the Game 1 Port.
The second connector is HDMI which is a compact low profile cable which transfers both HD1080 Video and Left & Right Audio to another device.
The built in WiFi should be picking up your Router WiFi in the house and transferring iTunes music to these Ports. Just play a song on iTunes on your computer & click the icon to select AirPlay on your ATV.
There are a heap of HD TV's and Amp's etc using HDMI these days.
It's the simplest way to get connected & its the best quality.
Unfortunately the Onyko 8050 uses a proprietary port which is not directly compatible.
I noticed all the Video Ports on the back of the Onyko are the old fashioned Yellow RCA connectors. (Called Composite Video.)
There are converter boxes & cables of various sorts that you could use on eBay, Amazon etc.

NOTES:
Many modern Amplifiers also become the main SwitchBox to transfer Video & Audio from one device to another. eg. My Pioneer VSX-922 has 5 HDMI input ports and 1 HDMI output port along with an assortment of RGB & Toslink Inputs & Outputs.
This way (via remote control) I can choose the Apple TV to Connect to the Plasma HD TV or The DVD Player to play Video or Audio to the Speakers. HDMI Makes the cabling so much easier.

For Future reference, when checking out new HiFi gear, always check the ports on the back of the unit.
Your Ports/Cables go by age.
1: Yellow-Composite Video RCA Plug (oldest)
2: Red & White RCA Plug (Audio Left & Right)
3: S-Video-Mini Din Connector (Video Only)
4: RGB- Component Video (Red,Green,Blue-Video Only)
5: DVI- Digital Video Interface (HiDef Video Only)
6: Toslink- Fiber Optic (Audio Only)
7. HDMI-High Definition Media Interface (HD Video & Audio)
I Hope this Explanation Helps Many Others with Similar Problems.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

I plugged in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.

1080P video via HDMI generates awful interference


Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.

Picture sound blackout (blink) when cable box/receiver HDMI used


Onkyo service told me, the second timethat I called them, that there is a known HDMI handshake issue with Motorola and Atlanta Scientific cable boxes. The only solution, and it was a solution, is to connect the box through the HDMI 1 port ONLY. All the other (2,3,4) result in blinking/dropping of signal. I did this, changed the cable/satelilte setting to HDMI 1 and all is well.

Onkyo tx-sr606 can not get it to work w tv using hdmi cables


try using a HDMI cable connecting the receiver from the "out" to the tv, then allocate through the setup menu what you have connected, say a cable box by hdmi, you would go to cable/sat allocate the port "hdmi1 or coax 1" then return. If it is a dvd click on dvd then allocate eg: "hdmi 2" then return.

Xbox 360


There are a couple of options you can use.

Are your DVD and cable actually going to the Onkyo first and then to the TV? I am assuming it is, if you listen to the Onkyo when watching a DVD or cable.

The Onkyo receiver you have has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output.

Does your Xbox360 have an hdmi output and that is what you want to connect to the Onkyo? Some do and some don't.

If your Xbox has a hdmi output and you are already using the 2 hdmi inputs on the Onkyo, you can not connect the Xbox using the hdmi, you have no more hdmi to connect to, so you must go thru one of the other inputs of the Onkyo.

The hdmi has the video and audio together, the other video options do not. you would need to run seperate audio cables as well.
Your Xbox should have a composite video (yellow RCA jack) output or a component video (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green RCA jack) output.

When you connect the Xbox thru, lets say the composite video of the Onkyo , you will also need to connect the audio from the Xbox to the Onkyo on the same input. It should be right next to the yellow RCA jack or right under it. They are 2 RCA jacks, one red and one white.

You will then need to connect the composite output of the Onkyo to the composite input of the TV.

When connecting like this, you will also need to select the composite input on your TV with your remote for your TV. Your TV should have an input button that lets you go thru all the different inputs to it.

you can also use the component video from the Xbox if it has that. But you must also run the audio to the Onkyo as well to the corresponding audio inputs of the component video input on the Onkyo.

This may sound a little confusing, but remember that the hdmi has the audio and video in one cable, the other video options do not, so you must run additional cables for the audio to the Onkyo from the Xbox.

Also remember whichever video you use from the Xbox to the Onkyo, you must also run that same video from the Onkyo to the TV and then switch the TV over to that input when you want to watch the Xbox on the TV

Receiver won't put out sound to LCD Sharp aquos


I have the same problem with my Sharp Lcd and Onkyo 804. I believe one problem is that the TV can not accept dolby digital or dts digital audio signals through HDMI. It will play sound if it receives a PCM signal through HDMI. You can try switching the type of signal on the cable box settings and on the dvd player. I switched to PCM and got sound through the TV and the receiver. The problem is that PCM is usually only a 2 channel signal and Dolby 5.1 will sound better through the surround sound theater system. I have not found an absolute solution to this yet, but I am willing to not get sound through the lousy TV speakers in order to get top notch sound through the Onkyo.
