First you have to activate the HDMI audio option in your Sony suround system options so as to activate it. Please try this and then tell me what happens.

The HDMI inputs are pass through inputs only. The reciever cannot recieve any sound signals through the HDMI's. The reciever acts as a selector switch for the HDMI inputs. Whatever input you have selected on the reciever is the one that is being sent through the output to your TV. The "unlock" display shows when there is no sound signal sent to the reciever. There is no code to unlock. This is the reciever's way of telling you that there is no sound being sent to it from that input. Since there is no sound being processed from the HDMI's, you need to hook up an additional audio cable from the device to the reciever (preferrably an optical cable). When the reciever recieves an audio signal, it will then "unlock" and you will get sound. The only purpose for the HDMI jacks on this reciever is to give you a bonus HDMI jack so you only have to use one on your TV. I know it is confusing. I had to look into this problem myself, so I'm happy to help. Higher end recievers will actually recieve and process sound signals from the HDMI's.

You have to use the scart connector for on screen menu settings. Go to the video option and enable HDMI and/or match resolution output to your set.
You did not mention the model of the TV so here is another scenario,
Just because the TV is 1 year old doesn't mean that it is a 1080p capable, you could have set the HDMI resolution settings to 1080p and you will not get any picture if your set cannot process the information.

You need to Bypass the Receivers HDMI port and use HDMI directly to the TV. Your receiver has HDMI version 1.2a and is not 100% effective. Use the optical out from your Xbox to the receiver and all will be well. 1.2a has issues in every receiver on the market. Supposedly 1.3b on the "new" receivers has fixed this issue. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos 46" HDMI problem
I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?

hd-ready tv's only support max 1080i and not 1080p. The default
setting on the Xbox is 1080p, that's why you get that message. There
is a way to fix this, just follow the steps below:
TV and X box via HDMI cable with units switched off.
both units on.
the right arrow 7 times (Left top jog knob on game controller)
"A" button 4 times (Green button)
"up" arrow once to set to 1080i
"up" arrow once again to set to 720p.
"A" to store setting
