Xbox connectivity problem

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?

Re: Xbox connectivity problem

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.

Re: Xbox connectivity problem

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?

Denon 1312 receiver composite video inputs do not work.

I'm having the same problem with my Wii output. The manual for the Denon AVR-1312 says that analog video signals (i.e. component/composite outputs from the Wii) are not converted to digital video signals (i.e. HDMI output from the rcvr). I'm running only HDMI to a projector, so the video signal is essentially lost. The fix appears to be to run an additional composite cable all the way to the projector. Sounds like your fix is the same. No Wii tonight! :(

My wii won't play video through my Yamaha RX-V465. The audio comes through OK. I have a normal signal video component cable and i have connected the receiver to the TV with a HDMI cable. i have tried...

This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.

From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.

So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.

Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.

How do i connect my xbox 360 to my yamaha rx-v665 receiver

If you are gonna connect the x-box to the yamaha directly you would have to connect the red and white cables to one of the inputs on the reciever and the yellow to the video on your tv.

Connect my xbox on reicever

If your xbox has HDMI connector then you HDMI cable to connect it to the receiver and another HDMI cable to connect receiver to the TV. Receiver should support both video and audio over HDMI.
If your xbox doesn't have HDMI, connect the video directly to your TV using whatever connector/cable is available (in terms of quality from best to worst: HDMI, component, s-video/scart, composite).
Then connect audio to the receiver via optical spdif cable.

Goof information. Have you eliminated or proven the Onkyo as a cause by going direct to the projector? Try another Input and/or Output. It's best to know which component is broken and if it's limited to a specific subset of its function.

Settings are also indicated. Run through the video setup again. If it just stopped, what preceded it?

I can't get sound from my HDMI Cable.

check the system settings of your console and make sure everything matches what your tv supports. Also check the tv settings so that it reveives audio from the HDMI cable

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

Component to HDMI

why dont u connect the xbox directly to the tv via HDMI cable? the output will be fantastic.The component cables just cannot give a better resolution than HDMI.
As for connections,i am not in favour of component and HDMI together.

Analog RCA input to HDMI output?

You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.
