Problem with component input and 720p HDMI output

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?

    Nope, no HDMI out from the cable box. I'd like to keep using the hdmi out from the receiver. That's why I bought it.

    I have a similar problem, and am on my second onkyo SR605 receiver as well. I have hdmi cable from my direct tv cable box to the reciever and hdmi cable from the receiver to a sony 32 inch 720p television. What happins is the tv will get a little snowy then horizontal lines appear then the picture turns a pink purple color then maybe greenish then no picture for about 5 to 10 seconds then the picture will come back to normal. This could happen after an hour of watching a great picture. When bypassing the SR605 no problems appear. I have even swapped out hdmi cables. Any help is appreciated.

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

    try the componant cables instead of the hdmi just to see if that's causing the problem [conflict with componant to hdmi]

I have a Denon AVR2307 to which is connected,via optical audio and component video a DVD player/recorder and this works well but in order to take some of the work off the player part I've bought another...


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.

Component input no HDMI output


The receiver can only output picture from one video output at a time...ei; component video and HDMI cannot operate simultaneously. Nor can it transfer a signal from a component input to an HDMI output or vice versa. The input and output connections must match.

Gui does not come up on screen


Possible causes & solutions, in order of simplicity:
1. Wrong input selected on TV - Reconfirm you have selected the input corresponding to the receiver's MON. OUT connection, e.g., component video, S-video.
2. Wrong output set on receiver - Reconfirm you haven't previously selected an output on the receiver that is unavailable on your TV, e.g., on some receivers, HDMI cannot be used for on-screen display. The front panel may show the setting as a backup for no on-screen display. If not, you may have to reset the receiver to factory defaults -- find out how to do this in the manual.
3. For component video or HDMI only -- Output signal from receiver may be set to a mode that the TV cannot process, e.g. 720p for a TV with only 480i/480p/1080i capability.
4. If the receiver is a high-end model with "Pure Direct" or similar settings that have been selected, the video circuitry and possibly also the OSD may be unavailable. Try switching to a normal setting or another input.
By the way, the usual term for the menus from an AV receiver is "on-screen display (OSD)" -- not "GUI (graphical user interface)," which is more appropriate for computers or cell phones.

Yamaha HTR-6230 receiver set up w/HDMI no sound


BD and DVR hooked up to the receiver and from the receiver to the TV right? If yes: Your receiver set to pass sound trough to the TV, if you want sound from the home theater setting has to be changed.

Hi t here, I have a Yamaha Rx-V363 Home Theatre System. As all my HDMI ''in'' ports are used I would like to connect my PS3 to it via an HDMI To RCA converter cable. I bought the cable but cannot figure...


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!!

1080P video via HDMI generates awful interference


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.

How to Hook up HDMI from Comcast Motarola Cable Box


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 best

720p output doesn't work


The problem might be that the set can not handle the change in signal. Try setting the AVR-247 to 720P first then turning on the set. Or manually set the TV to receive 720P then change the AVR. TI believe that you have a connectivity issue where the two units are not speaking the same language at the same time. Update this with your results and please post the TV make and model.
Thanks,
Dan

Screen flicker when watching 1080i


Component video has a max resolution of 720p. in order to use 1080i or p you have to use hdmi or dvi connections. That is why you get the flicker.
