Question about Onkyo TX-SR875 Receiver

1 Answer

HDMI Output with my Onkyo 875 Receiver

I have a brand new 875 installed a few days ago. I have a TV with a HDMI input. I have connected the 875 to the TV through a high quality HMDI cable. When I complete the setup in 875 to HDMI output with Auto upscaling, I get a signal on the right corner of the TV showing ''HMDI1, 720P".

As a next step I connected a DVD player through component cables to the 875. When I played a DVD, I do not get any output on the TV.

I tried replacing the connection between the DVD and TV with a S-Video, and the results are the same.

When I connect the 875 to the TV through a component or Monitor out I get signals on the TV.

Is this a set up problem, or have I been loaded with a defective piece of 875?

    I have HDMI OUT turned on. I have my xbox 360 using component cables going into the receiver. I get sound but the picture doesn't come out via HDMI.

Hello, the TX-SR875 does not support up-converting from component or S-video to HDMI. Is the model number correct? You stated the receiver is "brand new". This model is from 2007. Thank you, Onkyo USA

SOURCE: No HDMI Output

My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

Problem:
ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

Symptom:
I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

Solution:
1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.

What are the different conections for.... at the back of the TV. (There are two plug with multipal pins)


Hi,
TV's have many connections these days.
The majority of connections are inputs, which mean you can connect a external device into the back or side of the TV. For eg. you can connect a DVD player, Xbox, play station, camcorder, etc.
Most are labeled AV1, AV2, AV3 and so on. Which refers to Audio Video inputs.These connections will vary in style and are,
  • RCA style, Yellow is Video or picture connection. Red and White are sound, Right and Left........see attached photo.
  • S Video is a Video or picture connection, like the RCA but better picture quality...see photo.
  • H D M I is a rectangular shape connection and is for both picture and sound in the one cable and stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, which is higher quality again....see photo.
So for example if you connect a device into HDMI 1 on the back of your TV, then you select HDMI 1 via the AV function on your remote.
So I believe the one your talking about with the multiple pins is the HDMI.
Hope this was helpful to you.

Give me properly installation of stand alone dvr with computer all window how sport the dvr send me properly anstallation of standalone dvr


Take one co-axial cable, and connect the "input" port to your cable-company's wall-port.

Look at the connectors on the back of your TV. You could have:
* coaxial input (lowest video-quality)
* S-Video input (better video-quality)
* component input - three cables for video, two cables for audio (better video-quality)
* HDMI input (highest video-quality)

Look at the connectors on the "output" side of the PVR. You could have:
* coaxial output (lowest video-quality)
* S-Video output (better video-quality)
* component output - three cables for video, two cables for audio (better video-quality)
* HDMI output (highest video-quality)

Connect the "outputs" to the "inputs", using appropriate cables.

Turn the PVR on. Turn the TV on.

Use the "source" button on the TV's remote-control to select from the various inputs
(Coax, S-Video, Component, HDMI1, HDMI2).

If your TV has 'PIP' ("Picture-In-Picture") capability, connect more than one output to a second input, so that both tuners inside your TV will receive a signal.

My Philips Dvd home theater system HTS3100, how can i connect to my tv set


Hello

1. First things first, READ the Instruction Manual, I know most of you guys out there hate reading the instruction manuals but every system is different, so I'll generalize this article for an average system you can find at a retail store today.

2. Make sure you have the right cables to connect your TV to your Home Theater System, now days the best connection is called "HDMI" (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) this cable uses a digital signal to transfer both video and audio while giving you the best quality possible. But please make sure your Home Theater System has the "HDMI" as an input option. If it does not, you might have to resort to a analog connection such as "Component Cables" which will provide you with a High-Definition connection but with analog quality.

3. Now if you are using a current TV and a current Home Theater System and your system is able to use the "HDMI" cable, connection to said devices will be pretty easy, just hook one end of the "HDMI" cable to the "HDMI" input on the back of the TV, and the other end of the "HDMI" to the "HDMI" output on the back of the Home Theater System. Turn your devices on and make sure your input/outputs are configured for "HDMI" usage and vola! You should now be able to see and hear everything your heart desires!

4. Organization is key, after you have checked your connections and everything is working the way you want it to, utilize the cable/wire loom to organize your cables and use the zip ties to secure them in place, not too tight though, if you want to change things around in the future it's easier to cut the zip ties if you have enough room between the cable and the zip tie.

THANK YOU

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

42" pansonic plasma hdmi problem


if I understand your question properly.. its because your direct tv output doesnt broadcast in high def so its giving you the standard tv definition inputs which are RGB or Component.so you will lose picture quality cos its running at fewer lines or pixels. hope this helps

Onkyo 875 - No sound


YOU ARE PROBABLY USING 5 SPEAKERS WITH OR WITHOUT A SUB, AND YOU CONNECTED THE REAR SPEAKERS TO THE REAR SPEAKER OUTPUTS. THEY WON'T WORK THIS WAY. RECONNECT THE REARS TO THE SURROUND SOUND SIDE SPEAKERS, AND RERUN THE AUDISY SETUP. THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS AND SET UP THE DVD INPUT, IT WON'T WORK RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX, TOO MANY VARIABLES.
