Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

HDMI audio source issues with television off or set to different source?

I'm considering buying this receiver, and I plan on using the following setup:
AppleTV -> Receiver over HDMI
HD DVR -> Receiver over HDMI
Xbox 360 -> Receiver optical only

Xbox 360 -> TV via Component + stereo
Receiver -> TV via HDMI
My TV is a Sony KDF-E42A10.

Since I'll mainly be using the AppleTV to stream music, I'll usually have the TV off when it's playing. It looked like the SR605 would handle what I wanted, but there's a note on page 35 of the manual that says this:
"If the TV power is off or the TV is set to another input source, this may result in no sound from the AV receiver/AV amplifier or the sound may be cut off."

Is this the case?
Is it dependent on the television?
Is it related to the "TV Control" setting on page 84?
Could it also be related to the other Control settings on 84?

    Looks like my TV doesn't support that, and it can be easily disabled from the receiver as well. Thank you.

It is related to the tv, modern tv's have the ability to control different devices through the infra red pick up on the tv, and pass it through the hdmi cable back to the component.
Sony call there remote link Bravia link.
Check your manual for that, If it doesn't tell you anything, then don't worry about it, if it is in the manual then see how to switch it off.

Why does sound turn off.


Follow these steps to troubleshoot if there is no sound or intermittent sound from the speakers.
IMPORTANT: Not all of these features and/or functions are available on all products. Consult the instruction manual that came supplied with your unit to verify if your particular unit has these features, or if more detailed information is required to perform any of the steps below.
NOTES: Click on the appropriate link below if the issue is occurring with a particular device or connection.
  1. Make sure the MUTE function has not been activated.
  2. Try turning up the volume level.
  3. Check that there are no headphones connected.
  4. Try setting the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver to a different Surround Sound mode.IMPORTANT: Verify that the source you are playing is encoded with Surround Sound audio. If not, the audio will be very difficult to hear using a Surround Sound setting. Set Surround Sound to OFF when playing a source that is not encoded with a Surround Sound signal.
  5. Check each speaker to make sure they are properly connected to the A/V receiver.
  6. Perform a Test Tone function to verify if the speakers are working correctly.
  7. Verify all external audio sources are securely connected to the appropriate inputs on the A/V receiver. NOTE: If the audio is being sent from a television to the A/V receiver, then it may be necessary to disable the internal speakers of the TV or set the audio output of the TV to FIXED or VARIABLE. If the audio output of the TV is set to VARIABLE, then you will need to increase the volume level of the TV.
  8. Make sure the correct audio input is selected on the A/V receiver.
  9. Confirm what type of HDMI® devices are connected to the A/V receiver and then check the following:

    1. Test each one of the HDMI inputs on the A/V receiver to confirm that all of the inputs for the A/V receiver are working.
    2. Try a couple of different HDMI cables to verify there is not a bad set of cables.
    3. Unplug the video source from the A/V receiver and connect the source directly to the television. If there is still a problem with the audio, continue to the next step. If connecting the source to the TV corrects the sound issue, service will be needed on the A/V receiver. NOTE: Additional troubleshooting steps are available to troubleshoot instances when the audio, video, or both goes out when using an HDMI connection.
  10. Verify the DEMO (demonstration) mode is not active.
  11. Change the ATT (attenuate) setting. NOTE: The procedure to change the ATT feature varies by model.
  12. Reset the A/V receiver back to factory specifications.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required.

Tv does not receive sound from new digital cable box through hdmi cable.


It's probably a settings issue on your t.v., you can change where you get sound from (audio source), and it might be set to something like an analog audio source. Just change the audio to come from your HDMI. Not sure what model your t.v. is, but try going to settings, sound, and find something that looks similar to audio source, and change your settings from there.

My blu ray and regular DVD player have sound coming through the tv, but the tv itself on a regular chanel like ESPN, there is no sound. This is a Mitsubishi 73" DLP.


You have completed the proper troubleshooting, and by process of elimination you have determined that there is nothing wrong with your television's sound. The problem lies in cable. The next troubleshooting steps depend upon how you receive your cable channels. If you have a cable box (or a satellite receiver) you may just need to unplug it for 30 seconds to reboot it (or follow the instructions from a cable/satellite company representative on how to properly reboot your particular cable box/satellite receiver model). Also commonly the cable box/satellite receiver is not set to output audio properly. If you are connecting it to the television with an hdmi cable the audio output must be set to hdmi. Also there may be a setting pcm or bitstream. The cable box audio setting normally would have to be changed to pcm.The problem may be with the cable box/satellite receiver itself needing to be replaced or the cable cord connecting it to the television may need to be replaced. It is less likely that the television has a setting the one source input the cable box/satellite receiver is connected to that would affect the sound but confirm that there is or isn't. Last there may be something wrong with the source input you have the cable box/satellite tv receiver connected to.

If you do not have a cable box/satellite tv receiver then rescan your channels, try a different cable cord, and check with the cable company to make sure there is no internal issue at the moment.

LD4088 LCD will not play sound via HDMI cables. Component cables are fine. Hear a faint "click" from speaker when switching to HDMI input. Have tried all three HDMI connectors and have tried...


This is how AUDIO works in HDMI setup, you can select the source to send the digital audio along with the digital video through HDMI, the receiving end HDMI sound setup must be set to receive the digital audio through HDMI. Otherwise the audio may be sent and received through analog audio ports (Red (Right channel) and White (Left channel) RCA jacks) in stead. Most of the new TV and DVD player use auto detection.
So please check the HDMI audio setup to see how the audio signals are set to be processed.

Please leave rating if it helps.

I am trying to setup my receiver with my TV and Comcast cable box using HDMI cables (TV-OUT and HDMI-1) but for some reason I don't get any sound from non-HD channels. Am I missing something?? I've read...


I'm thinking there might be a setting in the cable box that may be sending the wrong bit rate for PCM 2-channel audio but usually the receiver decodes that stuff fine. Just the same, I'd give Comcast a call.

I run the video from my cable box directly to the TV (HDMI) and the coaxial digital audio to my receiver so each one can do what it does best with the best possible un-modified source data.

Denon AVR-2307CI HDMI won't always connect


In short, HDMI will not work. HDMI is riddled with issues, your's is just one of many! HDMI version 1.1,1.2,1.2a,&1.2b do not work 100% on any receiver. The current version is 1.3b and "so far" it works... Now the bad news; It's not just a software patch to fix the problem, it's a hardware issue as well. If your unit is still under warranty, the manufacturer will update hardware and software for you at N/C. If it's out of warranty, it's way too expensive to have done! The fix is to run your HDMI directly to your TV from source, ie. Cable,DVD, etc. then run coaxial digital or optical to your receiver for audio. The catch.. How many HDMI inputs your TV has will limit sources hooked up via HDMI. If you want further info on HDMI issues, just google "HDMI forums" and there are many different sites to answer the problems of HDMI. Hope this helps.

Sound cuts out when sound quality input changes on my rxv1700


Your HDMI version software and hardware will not work with todays version. The current version 1.3b is what works correctly (so far) IT can be upgraded to todays specs however, it's a preicey task for minimal gain if you are viewing any TV smaller than 50". The human eye cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080p on any TV 50 or smaller. That being said, if your TV has multiple HDMI ports, you can sidetrack this issue by connecting directly from the source, ie DVD, BLURAY, etc. then use optical or coaxial digital coaxial to the receiver. I know it's not the best news!! don't Blame Yamaha! it's been the recording industry and copyright protection issues that have overloaded product with "anti-piracy" software to the point you can't view it!. All receivers prior to 09' have multiple HDMI issues. Also, try setting your receiver to "Auto" in audio and running an analog RCA from the source to the receiver as well as HDMI, it may help, however, analog is much louder than digital, and I'm not sure if you can "offset" the volume level for analog in that receiver's settings. So, when you go to a commercial it could be unbearably more annoying than not listening to the commercial at all! Hope this helps.

Source always PCM, can't get Dolby-D


PCM is standard when using HDMI cables, you are passing an already decoded audio signal to the receiver and it outputs the sound and does nothing more. The reciever calls this PCM, your PS3, when pressing select should show that it is decoding the dolby digital HD. There is no quality difference in the two. PCM is the same because it is un compressed audio. So when using HDMI, no matter the signal that the movie or music is playing, wether it be dolby or DTS, you will see PCM when using HDMI.
