Question about Onkyo TX-SR505 Receiver
I am just getting to know my new 505E and have run into several questions I would love to hear others' thoughts about.
1. Codes for projectors?
The remot can control other pieces of equipment. All you do is input the right code. However the list that comes with the receiver doesn't include any projectors. I have a Sanyo Z5. Does anyone know if this can be controlled by the Onkyo remote, and if so with what code?
2. Video cables to projector
I have two players hooked in through digital sound and component input. Video is output through component. When I hook my old VCR to the regular video or S-video in ports, no picture comes through the component ports. Do I need a seperate video or S-video cable to the projector for that? In other words, can the receiver take S-video input and route it through the component out ports?
3. HDMI input
If I get a PopCorn hour player and hook it up with HDMI. Can that go out through component video to my projector?
4. There are lots of sound modes available but I don't understand teh differences between when and when to use what.
Grateful for all suggestions.
1, remote codes, check with sayno for code updates. Or consider a harmony remove last remote you will every buy.
2. Receiver does not convert video standards, need svideo cable.
3. popcorn hour player, no idea what that is , but like number 2. will need a seperate hdmi cable.
However, if the receiver and the player both have component, i would not hesitate to wore everything up component. In your application component video is better than hdmi. To many reasons to list. Good luck
