Question about Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

HDMI inputs stopped working

I have had a KDS-R60xbr1 for 2.5 years or so. It has 2 HDMI iputs.
I have my "Dish" DVR HDMI connected to video6 and a HT/DVD to video7.
Last night, coincidentally, BOTH 'shutdown", (I may be wrong but..) as this is not only hardware solution for combining audio/video onto one 'highway, it's also a software PROTOCOL. Fortunately, component inputs(YPbPr) saved the day for watching NCAA tournament play.
Is there some way to "RESET" these ports, After all it does have iLink/Firewire and Usb inputs.
Won't surprise me if today TV techs come to service with one of these plug it in and " voila'..all fixed....thanks that'll be $500.

Thanks for Any suggestion....

    I just experienced the same problem with my KDS-R60XBR1 television. I've had the set for a little over 2 years and all of a sudden the HDMI inputs stopped working. I'm using the component connections for now. Has anyone found a simple solution for this? I am about to initiate servicing of the optical block (per the class action suit) and am hoping to resolve this problem at the same time.

    Same situation here. Any solutions? I just had my optical block replaced today but HDMI's are still not working. I have a Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR and PS3. It worked fine for 2.5 years and now it shows the picture for a second then it goes black. Please help. Thx.

    exactly the same issue here, both HDMI inputs, tried my PS3 and my cable box even switched them around. Went to component inputs and they work.



    Anyone find a fix?

I had the same problem with the HDMI connected to my HD cable box DVR. We called the cable company and he changed the box and the problem remained. He said there was something wrong with my TV.  The component (5-wire) jacks on input 5 work fine.  A few months later i got the 'green tint" problem and the tech came out to replace the whole optical box.  I asked about the HDMI problem and he said that the Sony protocol for HDMI is the problem. It will "talk" to some hardware and not others. He has not found a fix, except to use the other A/V inputs and abandon the HDMI (#7) input.

I can't find your TV model to have a look at the manual. Normally you'd use a 3-plug RCA cable (Red, White, Yellow) to connect the audio and video outputs of the DVR to an RCA input on the TV. Then, hoping you have RCA OUTPUTS from the TV, you'd use a 2-plug RCA cable to take an Audio OUT from the TV into one of the receiver's Audio inputs (assuming you want to play TV sound through the receiver.
If you have no RCA inputs on the TV, you can get an RCA to HDMI Converter from Amazon for $10-$15 to convert the output of the DVD player from 3-plug RCA to HDMI, then put that into one of the HDMI inputs on the TV. Likewise, if you have only an OPTICAL audio output from the TV you can get a converter for that -- Optical audio to RCA stereo -- and put that into your receiver as an input.

You are correct. I feel your pain. This will not work.

HDMI is a pure digital signal and the providers require the content coming over the Dish DVR to be COPY PROTECTED. So it will not work unless the HDMI cable goes directly from the DVR to the TV. This is to stop people from being able to make their own recordings of Dish shows, or making copies of your DVR recordings. If you really want to run things through your reciver, you're going to have to use the "component" or "composite" video feeds, not the HDMI. Sorry.

How do you connect dvd dr420 to dish hd reciver with dvr to give me the capabilityto record from my dvr to my dvd dr420? do you have a phone number? how much does it cost to join fixya?


Connect to the component outputs on the back of the dish receiver. This is the output for TV1. Then conncect the ouput of the dvd dr420 to your TV. I am using the HDMI output on the dr420 to connect to an HDMI port on my tv. This results in a 1080p picture on the TV which is sharper than the 1080i from the dish receiver's HDMI cable. My Sony TV has multipe HDMI ports so I can choose betweeen these 2 inputs and can see the differance since Dish only sends 1080p on it's pay for view channels.

I lose my audio often for non-hd channels with dish 622 dvr


The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.

I want to run my DVD player through my DVR player.


Dish network receiver only have outputs. There are not any inputs on the receiver that would allow this but if your dvd player has an iput source you could run the Dish receiver to it and then the dvd player to the TV. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Thanks for using FIx Ya and let me know if I can further assist you.

WinTV-HVR-1600 Tuner card to DishNetwork receiver


Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.

This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.

If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.

nope.  While a true video-phile will insist that HDMI is better than the 5-wire jack, I can't tell the difference.

Connecting a Dish 622 Receiver to the HTR500 and a Sony HDTV TV


I haven't researched to actual manuals for your equipment, but I'm guessing that the optical may be disabled when the HDMI is used. You could try using the component video outputs to the TV and then the optical to the Onkyo.
