Distorted HD picture when using Onkyo 605 receiver

I ran into problems hooking up my receiver when I tried to run my Tivo HD receiver and HD DVD through the receiver using component cables. When I hook up the TV HD player directly to the tv I do not have any problems. When I run it through the receiver the picture gets distorted (lines running through it, etc.) I have an older 1080i mitsubishi television. I know the onky 605 downconverts the 1080i signal to 720p. Could this be causing the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi We have the Onkyo TX-SR605 and have been trying to preview 3-d on our Direct TV and new Samsung 55" 3D capable TV. However, the TV problem solver says that the receiver may not support 3D...

I have a '608, and it supports 3D because it has HDMI 1.4. It looks like the 605 only has HDMI 1.3.

The original HDMI 1.3 protocol is not 3D capable, but revisions a/b/c support it. You should check to see what HDMI revision the 605 has.

Onkyo tx-sr604 help

You said you tried hooking the HDMI up directly from the TV to each component, and that worked. How is it usually hooked up - through some kind of switch? I'm not completely understanding your setup here.

1st time using component video connections on my onkyo

Yes, switch to the video input that you are trying to configure (i.e. video 1-4). Press the menu button on the receiver or the remote and cycle to video settings. There should be a setting that says "video output" or "output" - set that to component. You may also have to configure the Input for that particular setting. For instance, if you have an HD tivo going into component 2 but you want it to be Video 1. Select Video 1, hit the menu button and scroll to video setup. Select video input setup and cycle it to component 2. Next, use the menu to cycle to video setup, select video output, switch to component. This should solve your problem. As a sidenote, you may also have to configure the audio in/out if you're using digital coax or optical. Let me know if this works.

Re: ONKYO with New LCD HI Def Television

Hi Lucylu

I don't have a solution to your problem -- but I do have the receiver and want to hook up my Plasma TV through the ONKYO TX-DS474 receiver. Its a great receiver but am not sure it will "do the job" being so old in the tooth.

Hope you found a solution!!

Hdmi audio problem from tivo hd

Your tv is new? if it is then it has a remote link, Panasonic call it Viera link, Sony call it Bravia link. Check your tv if it has that, if it does turn it off.
problem should be solved.
