Hooking up my Wii

Hi there, I am having trouble hooking my Wii up to my Onkyo receiver. It is all hooked up to the tv using HDMI cables. After trying to hook it up using the standard A/V (red, white and yellow) cables, I thought perhaps that was the problem and went out and bought Component cables hoping that would solve the problem, but no such luck...I know I am being pretty vague, but any help would be wonderful. Thank you.

SOURCE: No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

SOURCE: hooking laptop to onkyo sr604 through hdmi no

hdmi is video only

you will need to use the rca/phono inputs for audio.

you will need a stereo mini jack to steroe rca/phono

use the i/p marked aux/cd/

make sure the volume on the onkyo is turned DOWN before connecting any new input source.

The output from most laptops is designed for headphones so you may need to adjust the volume on the laptop DOWN as well.

Perhaps start off with laptop at 30% and the amp DOWN then increase the amp until you can hear the laptop sound.

To get good quality audio from a laptop you would be beter off with a USB sound card.

hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

if this is helping please vote.

SOURCE: I have a Onkyo TX-SR806 HDMI output does not work

Sounds like you may have a bad HDMI card my friend. I had an issue with my HDMI card that was causing blue dots to appear on the dark parts of the screen, when outputting 1080p over HDMI. This is a rather common issue, so it wouldn't surprise me if your HDMI board needs replacement - especially if you've ever experienced the infamous blue dot issue.

Hookup Blu ray player to Onkyo pre-amp for speakers


If you have audio out jacks from your tv, you would be better served hooking that up to the preamp. If you hook up the blu-ray player separately to both the tv and amp, the audio probably will not sync with the video correctly. The tv takes longer to decode the hdmi input and the audio will be ahead.

Onkyo tx-sr604 help


You said you tried hooking the HDMI up directly from the TV to each component, and that worked. How is it usually hooked up - through some kind of switch? I'm not completely understanding your setup here.

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.

How do you hook up the wii to the HItachi UT 42 x 902?


Problem: Hooking up Hitachi UT42X902 to a Wii
Solution: Even few technicans understand the issue because they have a hard time comprehending the Hitachi UT42X902 Director Series only has 1 HDMI jack and no RCA connections. I have both a Wii and UT42X902. At one point when I had a 4-way call with Hitachi, Nintendo, and Onkyo trying to figure this all out. So after several miss-steps, here is what I did and it worked…

I ended up buying an Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver Amplifier-Tuner which has "uplink" capability. (Do not buy the TX-SR506 or other Onkyo models they do not have the right uplink capability to work the Wii on the UT42X902 Director Series, I already made that mistake and the store would not take the 506 back by the time I got everything I needed to connect the system.) I then bought a off Nintendo market Red/White/Blue/Green/Yellow HD or HDMI compatible (for the Onkyo side) on one end and Wii compatible on the other (sorry I don’t remember the technical name for the cable but they are pretty common and Best Buy and other electronics stores have it). I connected the cable to my Wii and the 5 ended side of the cable to the Onkyo. My CATV satellite box and DVD player are also connected to the Onkyo with Monster 1000HD (10.5 Mbps) HDMI cables. The Onkyo is connected to the Hitachi UT42X902 also via a Monster 1000HD (10.5 Mbps) HDMI cable. The Wii works perfectly with this setup. You may have to go into some menus to set up the sound (I do not have external speakers yet). Good luck. I usually am not on this site but will try to monitor this site every few days for the next few weeks so post is you have questions, and I will try to help.
Disclaimer: I am not a TV tech and do not sell, represent any TV, Receiver-tuner-Amp, websites, cables, TV channels, services or other related products, nor do I own stock in any of these companies. I am a mere mortal girl who wanted to use her Wii Fit on her big screen TV.

How to hook up a Wii to a Denon AVR 1708


If you are video switching through the Denon, you may need to make sure the inputs (analog, composite) are the same as the outputs. For example, you might have component out to the monitor, but composite in from the Wii. I don't believe the 1708 can do the upconversion. Try hooking up a yellow RCA cable from video out to the TV.

Video Issue with Onkyo 606 when trying to watch Cable TV.


When this happens and you just see the input label try to press the power button on the front of the cable box and see if it brings the picture up. If this does produce the picture then it is a good possibility that something is interfering with the remote communicating with the cable box. I don't know if you have it contained in an entertainment center or how you have placed your equipment but if there is glass try to clean it and also wipe down the front of the cable box and make sure there is an unobstructed view of the front of the cable box.
Good Luck.

I have a Onkyo HT-S6100 sound system which has the HT-R667 receiver. I have a DirecTV dvr hooked up with hdmi, a PS4 hooked up with hdmi, and a Wii hooked up through component cables. The receiver is...


My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.
