Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver
I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 via component cable to my receiver and then output through HDMI to a projector, and while I can get sound (although not on surround L-R speakers), I can't get picture. Any thoughts?
As dumb as this sounds here is the mistake Sony made. The receiver does not process sound from the HDMI, it will only pass through that data to you TV. So you will not be able to get sound from your 5.1 speaker setup if you only connect the HDMI, you have to use the matching audio input for that respective HDMI input. Make sense? So the HDMI DVD Input must have digital coax for sound, HDMI Video2 must have fiber optic for sound, and there is another fiber optic port for the Sat input. Yes thats right, if you have 2 HDMI HD components and each only has fiber optic(neither one has digital coax) you cant hook both up properly the way you would think. Sony made this receiver poorly, turning High Definition Multimedia Interface into High Definition Multimedia Except For Audio Interface.

HDMI is passthrough only, so you can't use component in and HDMI out.
My problem with the xbox360 is getting the sound to play when i connect using HDMI from the 360 to the receiver. I read in the manual that sound from HDMI is not supported for all devices. is the xbox360 one of those?
