    I'm having the same problem. I have the PS3, and the Toshiba HD A2. I'm also using a 3 way HDMI hooked into the Game/Tv hdmi slot 1. And my HD Sat in the DVD HDMI slot 2. My Dvd's have True HD and the other advanced logos, rush hour 3 even has 7.1, but I haven't heard any of these advanced sounds yet. It keeps saying pcm 48 hertz. I have the Ps3 set to LPCM, and the HD DVD to PCM as well. In order for me to get the 7 speakers to produce sound I have to set the receiver to the P II movie setting. But I know that not true hd, or true 7.1.

    I just posted the previous question, and needed to add that all my source formats are set to Direct. The receiver only seems to respond when I change the first one in the list, the analog one at the top.

PS3 and many bluray players do this encoding internally. Therefore all the amp sees is pcm.

True HD can only work with HDMI interface and is only available on some newer HD DVDs. Check the DVD to see if the True HD encoding is available.

Are you connected by HDMI? If so, your HDMI board may be faulty. I was having major drop outs with picture and sound until I got it replaced.

I am trying to get the amp working through my tv using HDMI leads. I have no HDMI out on my tv so I used the lead from HDMI 1 on my tv to HDMI out on the amp. The set up menu appears on my tv but no...

Contrary to the instructions included with most AVR's...

You don't need to take video out from the TV to the receiver. Once it gets to the TV it has found its ultimate destination.

And you don't NEEDS to GET audio FROM a TV either, unless it tunes stations from its own antenna.

Otherwise the SAT/Cable box can provide analog audio to the TV for watching lo-fi programming like news with the Onkyo OFF; and you can run digital multichannel directly to the Onkyo for its special treatment.

Running either hi-end audio or high-end video to a device that doesn't absolutely need it wastes expensive cabling and introduces a couple more connections to worry about.

No but you may be able to help me. I have the same amp and ps3. I have HDMI leads from both but cannot get sound or picture. I do get the set up menu which means it recognises the HDMI lead. How is yours set up ?

Sound won't play through Onkyo TX-SR605 when using HDMI

The chances are that you have selected an incorrect sound setting or not switched it on, for the HDMI you are using. With Onkyo receivers each connection will have it own settings for video and sound. You just need to look in the manual as to how to select the settings.
