Question about Onkyo TX-SR304 Receiver

Screen flicker when watching 1080i

I have a Onkyo3 SR04 hooked up to comcast Motorola cable box and Syntax Olievia 32" LCD TV using component output. When I set up the cable box output as 720p for HD, I have no problem watching HD programs. However, if I switch to 1080i, the screen starts to flicking very often when watching HD, sometimes it will even black out (blue screen) for several seconds. If I connect my cable box directly to my TV with the same component cables, the flicking was gone. Any advice? Thanks

Component video has a max resolution of 720p. in order to use 1080i or p you have to use hdmi or dvi connections. That is why you get the flicker.

I have an Olevia 32" HDTV as well, but it's native resolution is 720P. If I try to set it to 1080, it flickers. Make sure your tv's native resolution is 1080. If not, that's your problem.

I have a viewsonic n3235w and it wont dsiplay picture when connected to sony network media player. Sony logo is displayed but then tv switches to 1080i and screen goes black. Any suggestions?


Set your Sony Media player to output only in 1080i or 720P output mode. If that doen't work and if your Sony supports Component hook-up, use that instead (Blue, Green, Red Video and seperate Audio).

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?


There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.

How to Hook up HDMI from Comcast Motarola Cable Box


Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

Be sure that you took the time to force the output of the DCH3200 to 1080i. They do not seem to come set that way by default! This is true whether you are using either the component or HDMI output.

Power OFF the unit and immediately push the Menu key on the front panel. Using the remote, be sure that the 2nd line of the config is set to 1080i and not something less.

This TV won't support 1080!


Low or poor signal from the cable company. Try another signal source such as a DVD play.
