Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver
I have an Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver connected to my TV via HDMI. When I connect my computer via HDMI to the reciever, the video passes through the reciever to the TV, but the sound doesn't play from the speakers.
I know the speakers are working because the sound for the radio and TV will play through the speakers just fine.
I know I can connect the computer HDMI to the TV and then just output the sound to the receiver, but I will be limited on HDMI connections and would like to use the two on the Onkyo
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.

Could well be the quality of your cables. if you have high end cables the consult a service agent. if you have the cables that came with the products, go and get some better ones.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR605 hdmi output jack
I haven't looked inside these or other similar units but if there is an extra unused input HDMI port next to the damaged port it may be possible to re-appropriated it as an output port by connecting the damaged port's wires to it after disconnecting it's factory wires. REMEMBER TO SEPARATELY SEAL THE DISCONNECTED WIRES TO PREVENT DAMAGE AND THEIR POSSIBLE FUTURE USE. Re-label the new port as the output HDMI and seal off the damaged port with tape (until replaced and reinstated). I strongly recommend photographing the original wiring locations for eventual repair to the original configuration.

Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.
