Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

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

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.

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR606 getting no sound from HDMI sources

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.

Unable to connect a blu ray dvd player to onkyo tx-sr605 via hdmi


Not sure what unable to connect means..but I will assume you have the correct cable.

First make sure you have plugged the from the HDMI cable from the DVD play into the IN 1 HDMI port on the back of your Onkyo

On the Receiver
Enter the Setup mode
Select INPUT OUTPUT ASSIGN
Next make sure the HDMI monitor out is set to YES on the Receiver
Monitor out
HDMI Monitor - YES

Next you need to assign the HDMI INPUT to DVD
Select INPUT OUTPUT ASSIGN
HDMI INPUT
DVD - IN1
CBL/SAT - IN2

This may be your issue.

Next step would be to verify your television input settings.

Nice receiver!

Best of luck!

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 ?

Onkyo TX-SR606 Reciever - 20 sec after power on, screen is green


The HDMI version in your receiver is 1.1 or 1.2 which will not pass video as it should. It's not Onkyo's firmware at issue, it's HDMI and in all receivers up to 2008 model year this is a very heated problem! The only fix is to run FIOS directly to the TV via HDMI and run it's audio to your receiver with Digital Coaxial or Optical. Hope this helps

Onkyo TX-SR605 conected to Mitsubishi DLP TV


What I think I did and how I fixed it!

FACTORY RESET ON EVERYTHING!



All you have to do is to do a factory reset on everything, but I thing mostly on your 605, but I would do it on the TV as well. I think what had happened is after I set everything up for the first time, it worked great. As the days when on I started to play with all of the futures the 605 and the TV had to offer. I was turning them on and off to see what everything did. What I think I did was, I turned on something in the 605 that the TV did not know how to cope with. If I had to guess, I think it is the Lip-sink feature (Spelling?) in the 605.

Anyway disconnect everything, look in your manuals of the TV and the 605 to see how to do the factory reset on both. Then turn your TV on. After it does it’s start up for the first time (again), start connecting the 605.

It has been working great for me after I did this. Do not count on help from the people you bought it from or the people who made it. This stuff is so new they do not really know how to fix it.

Analog RCA input to HDMI output?


You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.

Brand new Onkyo Tx-sr605 won't leave stand by


If the unit will not leave standby I would remove all power, disconnect *all* connections at the back, reconnect to a power source and try powering on. This will eliminate any connection causing the Onkyo to stay in standby due to a short. If it still will not enter power-on mode, you may want to look at the power source (is it properly grounded?), but beyond that the unit probably needs to go back.
