The limitation could be in either end. The player may not be set up to transmit the full 7.1 bitstream or the Onkyo may not be set up to play it (7.1 speakers defined, digital input assigned, calibration completed etc.)

You'll find all that in the manuals.

Only plays through one front speaker when in video mode.i've tried v-1 v-2 and v-3. i'm using optical for audio


Hi Richard, please make sure that the source has been assigned to the optical connection via the setup menu or you can select the source and then press the digital input button until the display shows the optical connection where the physical connection was made on the back of the Onkyo, Thanks, JT

Onkyo HT-R693 (HT-S7700) receiver will play video but no audio on Netflix and YouTube. However, sound comes through when connected to Comcast cable and even Pandora. I have tried the different channels...


  • Check your cable connections
  • set the input selector to the proper component sources your using.
  • set your speaker settings to either 5.1 or 7.1, according to your speaker configuration via Onkyo's AccuEQ automatic setup tool- because the same binding posts can be used for hooking up the Atmos height or surround back speakers; you'll need to tell the Onkyo system which setup you're using.

Cable TV blinks on and off when connected to my Onkyo receiver.


I have the same problem.  It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video).  Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts.  I am desperate for a solution.

No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1


if you are using an HDMI cable dont expect sound to come out (even thought HDMI carries both audio and video) the onkyo HT-s5100's Receiver is the HT-r560. the 500 models of the onkyo receiver does not allow HDMI to carry both audio and video. it only allows the video signal to pass to the receiver.

if youre using optical for audio w/c is what you need then these are the steps you need to follow.
*first make sure that the optical connections are ok at the back of the receiver.
*make sure that your DIGITAL INPUT is set to either OPT1 or OPT2 whichever optical input you used to connect the optical cable.
*then go to your PS# settings : go to sound settings / audio moutput settings/ select digital out (optical).

then enjoy.....ü

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv


Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

What is the best audio configuration with this setup?


You can't just plug in optical cables. Both the TV and amp have to be adjusted to allow the different type of signals to pass. I have an Onkyo receiver myself and you have to set the sound type up for each input. It's a bit tricky to do without a manual, but you can probably download one for free if you have lost yours.

Remote Control Not Communicating with TX-DS787


Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Your hook up should have nothing to do with the remote. You should get some functions like on/off, volume control. Thank you, Onkyo, USA
