Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver
It's my birthday today and received this receiver and Toshiba A3 HD DVD player to replace my older onkyo that is not HDMI.
I couldn't wait to hook it all up and get the HDMI HD audio/video capabilities. We followed the instructions to a tee and with 3 intelligent people trying to figure this out, WE COULDN"T...... only sound, no video and getting this message....STB failed, HDMI....use component cables.
Using monster cables, one very expensive, thick cable and the other is slightly smaller, 1m, 4ft basic monster, and an off brand HDMI cable. When we hook the cables directly from the cable box to the TV it works fine but when we go directly through the receiver, we loose the video, only sound.
I called up TWC and they said to call onkyo since they don't support this problem. Figures, Time Warner does nothing for you, but knows how to charge you for everything and raise their prices.
I will be calling Onkyo tomorrow, they are closed now and hopefully they have some answers. I went to their site and they said I don't need to use this firmware update for this receiver. All up to date.
I hope its not the cables, because I have already invested thousands in this little venture of upgrading with a new LCD TV, receiver, DVD player and cables and an HDMI cable box. I refuse to invest anymore money which I don't have. Please help Thanks
Same receiver same problem. at least ou're not alone.

Hey have a wicked happy birthday... It is mine today too!!! If someone born of Aquarius, on the same day as I cant fix it, then it probably cant be fixed!!
Sounds like you have a faulty receiver, but am going to read the manual as you already have and see if I can add my 2 cents worth... don't give up yet :)
