Question about Onkyo HT-S5100 Theater System
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.

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.

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.
