Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

Xbox 360 takes a long time to connect

When i try to run my xbox 360 elite through the reciever, it has been taking longer and longer to connect. But it is not a regular time either. I have tried using different cables, ports, ect. The xbox 360 sometimes connects for a second then takes a long time, and im pretty sure its not the xbox's problem. I have had this problem for a while, but now the Game/TV port says DOCK i need to change that back too. Any suggestions?

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Are your cables longer that 15 feet. If so that could be the issue. Press and hold the game button for several seconds. It should change back to game. Thank you, Onkyo USA

There are a couple of options you can use.

Are your DVD and cable actually going to the Onkyo first and then to the TV? I am assuming it is, if you listen to the Onkyo when watching a DVD or cable.

The Onkyo receiver you have has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output.

Does your Xbox360 have an hdmi output and that is what you want to connect to the Onkyo? Some do and some don't.

If your Xbox has a hdmi output and you are already using the 2 hdmi inputs on the Onkyo, you can not connect the Xbox using the hdmi, you have no more hdmi to connect to, so you must go thru one of the other inputs of the Onkyo.

The hdmi has the video and audio together, the other video options do not. you would need to run seperate audio cables as well.
Your Xbox should have a composite video (yellow RCA jack) output or a component video (1 red, 1 blue, 1 green RCA jack) output.

When you connect the Xbox thru, lets say the composite video of the Onkyo , you will also need to connect the audio from the Xbox to the Onkyo on the same input. It should be right next to the yellow RCA jack or right under it. They are 2 RCA jacks, one red and one white.

You will then need to connect the composite output of the Onkyo to the composite input of the TV.

When connecting like this, you will also need to select the composite input on your TV with your remote for your TV. Your TV should have an input button that lets you go thru all the different inputs to it.

you can also use the component video from the Xbox if it has that. But you must also run the audio to the Onkyo as well to the corresponding audio inputs of the component video input on the Onkyo.

This may sound a little confusing, but remember that the hdmi has the audio and video in one cable, the other video options do not, so you must run additional cables for the audio to the Onkyo from the Xbox.

Also remember whichever video you use from the Xbox to the Onkyo, you must also run that same video from the Onkyo to the TV and then switch the TV over to that input when you want to watch the Xbox on the TV

I had the same thing happen with my SR705. I ended up hooking the video to the tv and leaving the audio to the receiver. Haven't had trouble since

Hello, There is an update for your TV at Sony Support and I would strongly  recommend to call Sony Support to update your TV as firmware updating firmware is risky job for novice and TV firmware can be damaged and TV will shut down.

This is a common problem, just keep trying to update, no need to test the connection. Sometimes it takes a few tries, sometimes it takes a few hundred tries, but eventually it will connect and download the update.

My router was hit by lighting. I replaced the router. The Xbox works fine, but I can longer play online. I replaced ther cable also. I think lighting may have damage the ethernet connection on the xbox

Lighting may have damaged the ethernet connection on the xbox. Take can connect your computer to the same lan port connection that you are connecting the xbox to and see if you can get on line. If so you may be able to save the xbox if you go wireless and install the wireless adaptor.

Testing shows connections good sometimes and not others. Even when connections are good, it takes awhile to sign in, and often I get stuck looking for a game to join and never get in. I have two XBoxes...

Have you tried swapping them in both locations? Does your problem xbox still have problems from the further location? Are you using a wireless router or is it hard wired? If its hard wired, try changing ports that you're plugged into. Could be a bad ethernet cord. How old is your router? Dooes the problem xbox work if its the only xbox connected and running? Or is it only when they are both connected?
