720p output doesn't work

I have an AVR-247 and the 480p output works fine on both component and HDMI. However, when I change to 720p the screen goes black and I can't even get the OSD to come up (though the receiver displays 'OSD' on the front). This also occurs with both component and HDMI. Damn. Help appreciated!

    Have video on video out and component out (checked with other monitor). Do not have any HDMI output from AVR2600. Tried the factory reset option - no luck. Suspect something wrong with HDMI board itself but it converts HDMI inputs from non-protected sources to component OK. Audio is fine on unit - inputs for that work great, functions fine other then video out on HDMI.

The problem might be that the set can not handle the change in signal. Try setting the AVR-247 to 720P first then turning on the set. Or manually set the TV to receive 720P then change the AVR. TI believe that you have a connectivity issue where the two units are not speaking the same language at the same time. Update this with your results and please post the TV make and model.
Thanks,
Dan

Does the Harmon kardan avr25 have an hdmi output


Nope. You get one component OUTPUT (monitor) and two component INPUTS (Vid 2/DVD) but no HDMI video output.

If you can input and switch HDMI video directly at your display from your cable/SAT etc. you should be fine, just run all the audio through the AVR-25 through the coaxial/optical digital inputs, L/R analog RCA or the 5.1 direct inputs.

Connecting


did you check this out yet? (from the owners manual)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the AVR's video output resolution

is set higher than the capabilities of the actual connection,

you will not see a picture. If the best available video connection

from the AVR to the TV is composite video, press this button
and change the resolution to 480i.

My WD-60735 doesn't recognize my xbox 360 in HDMI or AV. DVD player works fine in AV, Xbox works fine in HDMI and AV on another tv. Just goes to blue screen on this tv.


have you set your settings for 720p on your xbox then turn the tv on to the right input then turn the xbox on? i had that issue with a previous tv? does the lights on your xbox just spin around?

I have a Denon AVR2307 to which is connected,via optical audio and component video a DVD player/recorder and this works well but in order to take some of the work off the player part I've bought another...


HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.

Sound and video goes out periodically for a a couple of seconds every few minutes. Power stays on, all sound and video stops.


I am assuming you are connected HDMI?
This is a common problem when connected with HDMI. HDMI checks for HDCP codes every three seconds and if it doesnt get the proper response from the devices or repeater (amp) it will drop the connection and ask again in 3 seconds. If it receives the proper key it will display the signal again.
Have you tried the firmware update? http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-4308CIFirmwareUpdate-Web1128.pdf
I hate to say this but HDMI is not perfect yet so there may not be a solution to this except to drop your inputs and outputs to component video and digital audio. The only source that will be effected from a resolution stand point is a BluRay which can only display 720p or 1080i (not 1080p) when ran through component video.

HDMI output from AVR-4806


You say your connected from the DVD to the Denon with an HDMI cord and the Denon to the TV with an HDMI cord and you get no DVD video? can you get the Denon setup menu? if so change the res. output on the DVD to 480p, 720p or 1080i but not 1080p

No component output on AVR-4306


This does not work... You can only upscale the video signal with 4306; meaning you can covert s-video, component video to HDMI but can not down-convert HDMI input (coming from your HD DVD player) to Component video output. Sorry that I could not give you a solution as this is the 4306's limitation (written on the 4306 manual.).

Problem with component input and 720p HDMI output


does your cable box have an hdmi output? if it does try an hdmi cable instead of componant cables[ i know the hdmi cables aren't cheap] if not, if the reciever has componant outputs, use them instead.
hope this helps

It may be a resolution setting issue...the game may be outputting in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Try going to your video settings and knocking the resolution back to 720p for your HDMI output....in settings under video, select your ouptut, and uncheck the boxes next to the types above 720p. Also make sure you have latest software update for ps3.
