Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me. I have an xbox elite, tried connecting via hdmi, however, i'm getting no audio, and the video isnt right either, wherever there is differnt fonts, they seem like they're smeared across the screen. any suggestions? i've used three different cables, so i'm confident it is not the hdmi cord...unless microsoft is extremely picky and demands only the best, and i've tried connecting to my television directly and surround sound, both with poor results...when connecting through the surround sound it didn't even recognize anything connected

Unfortunatly this does not sound like a simple cable fault, this sounds like a fault with the graphics processor unit(gpu) this is usually followed by E74 or rrod,when this does happen,and your console is less than 3 years old and has not been tampered with in any way:ie the case has not been opened, it is covered by microsofts 3 year warranty, you will need to visit www.xbox.com/support . If you want to have a go at fixing it yourself there are plenty of good guides on this site or on youtube or book a pro repair center.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

Hook your Xbox to tv via HDMI, then hook TV to reciever through digital optical or composite cables. If you try to get your picture through receiver first, you may get picture and sound but, sound may be delayed and picture might not be the best. Bettter to run through tv first then provide sound to receiver.

It could have to do with the settings on each input device (xbox & DVR) -check their audio settings. I have a better solution for your problem though:
Since HDMI supports 7.1 ch of digital sound, I'd recommend using the optical inputs on your HTR-6130 that are made for 5.1 ch sound. I agree that you should be getting sound via HDMI, I was able to from my xbox to my 6130, but it gets cut down to 2 channel sound (good, but pales compared to true 5.1 ch sound). It believe it has to do with Dolby not being backward compatible going from 7.1 to 5.1. Anyhow, in order to get an optical-out on your xbox, you'll need connect with the a/v cables that came with the xbox, along with the HDMI cable. Depending on how old your xbox is, and which model (like an elite edition, etc), You may need to buy a special converter that will allow enough room for both an HDMI connection and the A/V connection. Trust me, I have an HTR-6130 with an xbox and a cable-provider issued box running through it. Optical is the way to go for this particular receiver since it only supports 5.1 ch sound. You can still use the HDMI ports on the receiver as a switch between your two devices, or you could choose to bypass it if you TV has more than one HDMI input port.

Hi, I've had my xbox 360 elite console for


might want to check the cable, if you are not getting light from the xbox360 most likely you have changed something on the TV. make sure its on the right setting

HDMI device has to be on first in some cases.

make sure the plug is good and well connected.
restart the xbox360 and try again.
try the xbox on another hdmi device to see if it working.
or try the regular mode of the xbox.

Hi there

As far as I'm aware the only way to get hd with the older boxes that don't have hdmi socket is through component unfortunately.

Microsoft have indeed pulled a fast one with this and cunningly released the elite for more profit.

I think the only difference betwen component and hdmi is that hdmi has built in audio in one wire where as with component you require seperate audio.

In short, No. HD only via component.

Hope this is of help
