Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I purchased the Onkyo TX-SR805 believing that it would upscale composite connections and solve the many different connection inputs without lose of picture quality....sadly I was wrong.
My problem is this, I cannot get sound to come out ofmy LCD speakers. I have tried everything I can think off. The main speakers work fine, just no sound from LCD TV.
HDMI Audio has been set to "ON" or "AUTO"
I have connected up my Pioneer DVR 60L via HDMI Cable to receiver.
I have also connected my Satelite Pay TV to receiver via a SCART to COMPONENT cable crossover.
The HDMI out plug i on receiver is then connectored to my LCD HDMI in connection.
No problems with picture on either device, just no sound comming from LCD TV.
Can you please help

SOURCE: 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.

I don't know if it's firmware or hardware, however, it is NOT a problem, it is the DESIGN -- and an asinine one at that.
Essentially due to copyright issues with HD video, they CAN NOT decode the video to an analog output source. That's all fine and good, however, the audio never fell into that copyright issue. So you should be able to carry though the audio signal from those sources (since in the case of the component input, they're analog anyway). I think Hitachi is the ONLY company that just disables ALL analog outputs when it senses the video signal on the component or HDMI inputs (and you have the tv set for that input). They really should have ONLY disabled the video.
I had a half hour conversation with customer service, begging them to 1) file a complaint to fix this in the next firmware version, or 2) let me speak with an engineer to give me a hack -- obviously they didn't do that :(
The funny thing is, they WILL allow the Optical Audio output signal to carry though.
I've now been frantically searching the internet for information on how to bypass this ridiculous design 'feature'. As this TV isn't that popular, there's not much info out there on how to do so. So, I wouldn't know if I can simply try to attack the firmware code, or, if I actually have to take off the back of the TV and muck around with my soldering iron -- I'm hoping firmware.
One test shows that the control signal to SHUT OFF the entire analog outputs (audio and video) is on the 'Pb' (blue) input of the component video. If I have that one cable pulled out, I can get the Audio out to work and hear everything on my external stereo -- obviously I have a completely jibberish and unwatchable picture though. Once I plug in the 'Pb' cable, the picture comes in, obviously, but the external stereo sound cuts off.
At any rate. Just to reiterate, it's a design issue, and Hitachi seems unwilling to address the HD video copyright issues any other way. I am going to obviously send them a letter by mail telling them how their 'sledge hammer' approach to this issue is ridiculous when there is a 'scalpel' approach that is completely legally viable -- and all their competitors do it that way.
For this reason I now regret buying this TV.

SOURCE: Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem
I made the same mistake when i hooked my REL sub up to the back of the 805.
The problem is there are 2 connectors on the back of the amp that are labeled as sub out. Look very closely, you will see that there are 2 grouped RCA outs. The RCA out group you are looking for differentiated by groups of "little white dots" all the way to the far right on the back of the amp. Hope this helps.

DVI does NOT support sound unlike HDMI. Hopefully your PC has a Co-axial S/PDIF digital output. If not you might want to spend the $50 and buy a nice one from Creative. Modern motherboards are even coming with HDMI built-in but that's NOT your situation. I use a 15" DVI to HDMI cable but you are probably using an adapter and the a regular HDMI cable. Get co-axial digital audio cable of the right length and connect it to the co-axial inputs (they're in the upper corner). Use the remote's set-up button and select the "Digital Input" option. This is very powerful. You can assign any of the Optical or Co-axial inputs to any associated device.
I have my PC as Video 3 with sound coming in via HDMI which I assign under the "HDMI Video" menu and sound under the "Digital Input" as "Coax1". I use "Coax2" for the DVD player that lacks an optical output. If you use regular analog you are screwed as you found out. I usually use the headphone jack and an extension cable with the Computer and watch on it's monitor.
All HDTV sets are **** compared to a decent computer monitor. The deliver MUCH clearer video and much higher resolutions that shitty the 1080 HDTV maxes out at. ATSC is **** compared to a PC. Grated, cable is junk compared to ATSC at 1080i but that's another story. Yet, comparing ATSC to a computer is like comparing NTSC or digital cables' crappy 480i with ATSC at 1080i. It that much greater. At least 720p is wide screened unlike 480i garbage that's most of Comcast's "HD" digital junk.

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.
