Question about Onkyo HT-S5100 Theater System

Onkyo S6100 Technical Difficulties

I, too, have the same exact issues with my S6100 home theater system and I have the same blu_ray player. I tried the hard reset on the receiver (simultaneously pressing the VCR + Power/Standby buttons on the unit) numerous times, but nothing changed. I called Onkyo tech support and I have taken the receiver in for service twice. I was told that all HDMI inputs were checked and cleaned and that everything worked fine.

I brought the receiver home and still have the same issues, plus a few new ones. The receiver now shows HDMI on its display when in DVD mode, but my blu_ray player displays a U73 error message, which means something is wrong with the HDMI connection. Additionally, now I get sound but no picture from my Wii. The funny thing is that the HDMI cables and the connection work just fine with my older Samsung DVD-HD860 player (there is no delay), so maybe it's an issue with the blu_ray player. I have repeatedly reset the receiver and the blu_ray player to factory defaults, but they still won't communicate with one another. I have also tried disconnecting and reconnecting the components with the power on and off, but that didn't make a difference. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I am frustrated beyond belief. My last resort would be to call Best Buy's Geek Squad, but I'd rather save my money, if possible.

SOURCE: Issues Displaying picture from HDMI upconversion

I've posted this other places. Hope it helps.

My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have just installed a HT-S6100 at home and works

There seems to be a lot of this type of lack of signal (video, audio or both) with this system. I have the same system and the same problem. Mine is working now. I'm using all HDMI connections. I think the other important thing to do is "delete" all Input Assignments that are not being used. By "delete" I mean set the Input Assignments to "----". Let me know if this helps.

Can a blue ray player be input to the back panel recepticales?


You would normally connect a Blu-ray player to the TV using an HDMI cable. A digital optical audio cable connects the Blu-ray player to the home theater system.

Special features small


Apparently it's an issue when the special features are not HD. I saw on one of my blu-ray discs (don't remember which) and today on my 'Dr. No' blu-ray.
This is apparently fixable via a firmware update. You seem to have to download the firmware to a USB drive, then plug in the front of the blu-ray player. Trying this now. Here's where I found the solution:

I have an Onkyo HT-S6100 home theater not sending picture to TV.


I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16. Here's how to fix it. http://www.highdefforum.com/high-definition-receivers-recorders-players-tivos/121956-repairing-onkyo-htr667-aka-606-a.html

I can not find remote codes for the Daytek DVK-5601 DVD player


Well I finally got an answer from Daytek. It's not what I wanted to hear, but thought I'd share it in case someone else runs into the same issue.

"I am sorry to inform you that theres no dedicated universal remote code for Daytek models. However, you can try the code for MTC on our unit and see if it works."

Blu-Ray disc stops playing after 20 minutes


New Blu Ray home theater player can not play new Blu Ray movies according to Samsung customer support. It is a JAVA code issue and they are working on a software upgrade. No release date is known. I tried playing The Hulk, Ironman and Wanted. None would play.

Thanks Samnsung for wasting my time and money!!!
