Re: hdmi settings?

Hey Kris, this might all be about different 1080 settings. Maybe Your consoles work on 1080i and the TV is 1080p.
It more sounds like your receiver has a faulty HDMI jumper, which you wont be able to fix. Here`s what i would do:
If your lcd has two HDMI inputs, use on for each the receiver and the other for the ps3...
2-For how important is to rather connect the ps3 via HDMI, for picture quality. then simply get an HDMI splitter, yes... YOull have to go and switch from receiver to ps3 whenever you want to play BUT it really sims your receiver is not going to cut it.

The pink you see is an incorrect "GAMMA" signal thats only induced by a malfunctioning software or hardware.

Is your receiver from a cable company? Try to get it replaced.

I would start there and if it wont make a difference, go with the splitter. YOu might get one at walmart, Radio Shack or ebay.

Hope it works and please feedback with results.

Good luck!!!

I have a STRDH510 Sony reciever. When i play BD movies in my ps3 randomly the Screen will go black drop all signal and sometimes come back. sometimes i have to cycle the power to get it back. All...

Try updating your PS3 firmware by connecting it to internet and using its setting menus to start the firmware update. IIRC some early PS3 firmwares kept loosing HDMI signal occasionally.

I have connected my Charter HDTV settop box to the strdh700 in the 'sat in' hdmi connection, then connected the 'out' hdmi to my sony bravia tv and the signal isn't getting there. any suggestions?

If you're not getting the audio signal, please select the Audio for HDMI to TV+AMP in Menu display. If you're not getting the videos, please check if the TV is HD ready and supports 1080p signals. Also check if the connections are firm and secure and you selected the correct input on both Receiver and TV. Please try connect the Settop box to different HDMI port of the receiver and try. You can also try connecting the Set top box to tv directly and check if its working. If its working fine directly with the TV, you may try to replace the cable and try else the receiver may require service

No image/sound when sony ps3 is connected to onkyo 875

I've had problems with my Onkyo receiver too.

Firstly i suggest going into the Onkyo setup menu. Make sure that in "source settings" i think that's the menu option) that the input e.g. dvd is set to receive HDMI. then go into the settings for DVD and ensure that resolution is set to auto, then go into the monitor out settings (option 1 on main seyup menu) and make sure that main monitor out is set to HDMI and auto resolution.

hope this helps,

HDMI connection with Panasonic DMP-BD35K Blu-Ray Disc Player

Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

Denon AVR 588 7.1-- Sound setup questions

This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.

If I'm not mistake, it's dependant on you monitor's ability to display 1080p. I believe the defaul setting on the 94TXH is to read the TV's max resolution and anything above will not feed.

Avr 745 HDMI only output 1080i not 1080p. Your PS3 is capable of 1080p. You have to adjust your PS3 to 1080i then your screen will work. I hope Harman will come up with the upgrade for HDMI that can output 1080p otherwise you have to suffer or stuck with 1080i. Hope this will solve your problems.
