Question about Onkyo TX-SR803 Receiver
Everything working fine but not sound to the speakers; yesterday was a general power interrupted while a storm (over voltage when returned ??
Lightning damage ??) I'm not sure that was the really reason of the malfunction because there were a lot of other electronics in the same line and they are working fine (Xbox, TV, DVD player)
I opened the chassis and check all fuses and they where all ok
All the function seem on the display work fine, only no sound output
When I turned on, it makes the usual relays clicks sound.
I test second zone and pure audio but nothing
I test with various sources: FM tuner, two different CDplayers but nothing!
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
SOURCE: reciever shutting off
This idicates problem with output circuitry. Have unit checked out by pro/tech
You indicate you have speaker spliced in with another(?)
This changes the impedence which may be too low for amp to handle. It may cause amp to shut down to stanby.

Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.

zone 2 will only work with analog sources so if your dvd, cable and other devices are connected via HDMI, that alone won't work. What you need to do is hook up RCA (red and white) cables from the dvd player to dvd in of the receiver and same thing for your satellite box (and other sources.) no need to change any setting on the receiver. This way, the HDMI will take care of your main room speakers and the RCA will feed your zone 2 speakers.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problems with optical input
sometimes with cable, satellite, or any dvr, the digital signal actually is intermittent and there is little we can do about it but add an analog audio connection for each device as a backup. per se, and put the receiver in auto input mode. the receiver will utilize the analog signal to fill in where the digital signal fails

If your remote also controls the Cable Box you might want to look at its audio settings. Maybe you muted it.
BTW: it would be a good idea to also run video and analog audio from the cable box directly to the TV if it has speakers so you can watch and listen independent of the Onkyo.
