Re: hdmi connections

Hi, If you are trying to use HDMI video, and want to give autdio input separately, that can be done in many ways. In fact I am giving HDMI video from my HTPC at DTV inoput and audio over SPDIF (optical). In the menu there is an inout select option. You need to go into DTV, then select which audio to use. You can then choose whoch input port for audio is being used with DTV.

I have issues with HDMI input as well, but those have to do with refresh rate of 60 Hz and 1080i.

How to hook up a denon avr -1706 receiver To a lg smart tv

If you are tuning in TV stations with the TV set, you will need either an optical or a coaxial audio cable to go from the digital audio out of the TV to a digital audio in on the receiver. This setup should give you 5.1 Dolby digital sound. You can also use a pair of red and white rca cables, but you will only have 2 channel sound. You may need to set the TV to output the audio to external speakers. You will need to set the receiver to the input the TV audio is connected to.

If you want to watch Sat or Cable, you probably need a couple of HDMI cables. One HDMI cable will go from the output of the Sat/Cable box to the appropriate HDMI input on the receiver. The second HDMI cable will go from the Monitor Out on the receiver to an HDMI Input on the TV. You may need to set the receiver to output HDMI audio from the receiver, and not the TV. You will need to set the TV to the HDMI Input you connected to on the TV. You will also need to set the receiver to the input the Sat/Cable box is connected to.

Details of both of these setups should be covered in the receiver and the TV manuals. Refer to them for the detailed connections and settings you need to make.

Good Luck!

How to run tv from sat box and not have to turn on the reicer all the time. When I do want surround use the digital audio off sat box. Yamaha RX V377

If your SAT Box has multiple outputs, hook the HDMI output to your receiver so you can get full surround on movies etc. Connect the HDMI out on your receiver to an HDMI input on the TV. Run a composite or S-video connection from the sat box to the TV for regular TV viewing/listening without the receiver & speakers. I don't think you can get full HD over either of these cables, but you may be able to use the composite connections if they are available on your sat box and TV.

Unable to connect a blu ray dvd player to onkyo tx-sr605 via hdmi

Not sure what unable to connect means..but I will assume you have the correct cable.

First make sure you have plugged the from the HDMI cable from the DVD play into the IN 1 HDMI port on the back of your Onkyo

On the Receiver
Enter the Setup mode
Next make sure the HDMI monitor out is set to YES on the Receiver
Monitor out
HDMI Monitor - YES

Next you need to assign the HDMI INPUT to DVD

This may be your issue.

Next step would be to verify your television input settings.

Nice receiver!

Best of luck!

I have connected to my 2311: HDMI 1: Oppo BDP 83 HDMI 2: Denon DVD 1740 HDMI 3: Apple Mac Mini Issue: The Mac Mini works fine and I have audio and video through the receiver, but for the BD and DVD only...

You have to check the digital audio assignment of you AVR for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. There is three options for the digital audio for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. You can set it as optical ,coaxil, or the HDMI itself. In you receiver the assignment may be in optical input or in coaxial input for the two HDMI inputs.

1. Go to the system setup
2. Select input setup
3.Select input assignment.
4. Select all the three input ,you are using as HDMI

How to connect the herman kardon AVR 260

I have a AVR 247 and a AVR 347 there is a HDMI output on the back this will go direct to your HD TV HDMI input. If you have a HDMI output on your SAT. box then run this to the receiver HDMI 1 input. If you dont have a HDMI output on your SAT. box, then you want to use the digital fiber optic output from your SAT box and run it to OPT 1 input on the back of the receiver. This will be for audio only from the TV but thats all you want anyways. Be sure to set your receiver to HDMI 1 OPT 1 for this option. PS. This is a very clean and nice sounding receiver the only flaw to these receivers are the amount of heat they generate even on very low volumes. You must get a 4 or 5 inch boxer 120 volt fan and set on top of receiver blowing down and plug it in the back of receiver on the switched plug outlet so it comes on when powered up. This will make your receiver last 10 times longer. i have had mine for 3 years now and run them very hard sometimes with no problems with this fan addition. Hope this helps good luck.

HDMI video not functioning on a new Onkyo TX-SR606

For me, it was the Monitor Out setting that had defaulted back to Component. I remembered to change the individual inputs to HDMI - but had forgotten to set the Monitor Out to be HDMI.

How to Connect HDMI Components with AVR 3805 as Hub

In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:

Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.
