I bought this receiver from Amazon, found the particular problem I describe, figured it was a faulty receiver and returned it to Amazon to get a replacement - the replacement has the same issue, so I'm starting to think it's a "feature".
I have my Cable box connected via Component out to the receiver. Then output via HDMI to my TV (which supports up to 720p, not 1080p). I often get picture distortion while watching cable. Picture flicker on all or part of the screen, especially when there is a cut between scenes on the program I'm watching. On occasion, the picture has even disappeared for a couple of seconds, replaced with green screen and then returned. I've also had weird incorrect pallettes when switching from an SD channel to an HD channel. Restarting the receiver fixes this. The same issue has occurred in BOTH receivers I've tried which makes me think maybe there's an issue with component to HDMI 720p conversion. Any ideas?

Re: Problem with component input and 720p HDMI output
Does your cable box have an hdmi output? if it does try an hdmi cable instead of componant cables[ i know the hdmi cables aren't cheap] if not, if the reciever has componant outputs, use them instead.
hope this helps

HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.
you should not do that, your quality of the ps3 when then be horrible!, instead just go on amazon.com and look for ps3 component cables, and get those, you may not be able to go to 1020p but you will atleast get to go to 720p, but that is way better than the RCA' 420i, trust me! For further information, if you have an HDMI cable, then use a Addapter to convert it into something else other than that, it will downgrade the quality dramtically, stick to component and hdmi cables for now, RCA is poop!!
Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.
Cable boxes or satellite receivers typically only come with audio/video output, RF output, and component output. You need an upgraded one which has the Hdmi output jack. The upgraded box will cost you a service fee around $5-10 a month, so if you don't want to pay to receive the 1080p service you can receive 720p by using the component video output leads from your cable box.
The quality is almost as good. The only difference will be that you won't be able to receive the hi-def channels that the cable company offers.
Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs
on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input
on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical
audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your
components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component
video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third
make sure you have Tv on that particular HDMI input .I believe video 6 or 7 .if you do check menu make sure that input is not blocked. or you might want to try the component outputs of cable box and connect that to a component input on tv to see if that is working,,i have seen these tv HDMI input board bad..lets hoe this is not the case..
