My HT-SR800 had been working fine, and still works normal with a DVD. But when my wife turned the system off, I think she accidently hit a wrong button on the remote before shutting it off. (remote for system being used, and a separate one for the T.V. and cable) Now today when turning on T.V. picture appears as normal, and the when turning sound on separate as in past I have no sound with my T.V. I tried everything I know to try with the remote, and manually with the receiver also. Any suggestions as to what i'm doing wrong. I checked the input button to make sure it is on cable..any help greatly appreciated

If you have several audio/video devices, which is probably the case if you have this system, you might consider buying a Logitech Harmony All in One remote.
I got one as a present - it now controls all my devices intelligently and is fully programmable to switch all boxes to the correct settings for a particular activity with one button. It connects to a pc with a simple but sophisticated GUI to set up, and codes for hundreds of devices are available and automatically downloaded.
Brilliant, and my wife can now use our systems without having to ask me what to do! It even has an on screen help function.
You need to put away the remote for your TV and use only the remote for your HT system. Your HT remote should work on your TV by default. Your Samsung HT remote should have a TV button and a DVD/Receiver button (or HT button). When using only the TV, press the TV button and then use it for just the TV and when using the HT system, press the DVD/Receiver button and then you can use the HT system.
If for some reason your TV is not set on the Samsung HT remote by default, your HT users manual should have a list of codes that you can use to program your HT remote. Hope that helps you. Gary
If you call Onkyo directly, 201-785-2600, there is a procedure to "reset" the system, something like holding the power button on and holding down another button for a few seconds. Can't remember which, so I can't be sure, but try giving them a call.
To me it sounds like you might have blown a channel(s). The speakers that you are using with unit, did they come with it? If not you need to check the ohms of the speakers. It looks like the Onkyo HT-SR800 can only handle a minimum of 8 ohms. If your unit is under warranty definately send it in for repair
Did you plug the hdmi from the receiver to hdmi via the monitor hdmi output? this is needed so when you change the device on the receiver ie. between setop box and dvd the monitor changes with it accordingly.
You may also need to go to the setop box to set it to use hdmi output at the right frequencies too..ie. 720p 1080i or 1080p.Also set it so it only sends the picture via hdmi but audio still with optical out.
It must be about the sound quality need of your amplifier. The sound processor simply needs to get clear signals from sources such as fm/am receiver, dvd/cd players etc. in order to manage'em to give you the optimum surround sound. If the fm receiver has an "FM MUTE" option, I recommend that you turn it on. By doing so, you'll receive only good quality fm stations, furthermore your amplifier will let you get surround sound. The second issue you mentioned has its own answer inside. Use a "new" cd player, you can get optical cables, digital coax cables to improve the performance if you like..
