HELP: Onyo Remote Does Not Recognize Receiver when using Cable
Hi, I got an HT-S5100 7.1 CH Onkyo Home Theater System hooked up to my Panasonic Plasma. At the same time, my technician programmed my ONKYO remote control to control my DVD, CABLE and TUNER audio as well as drive the CABLE menu and channels. My cable is connected to my receiver via HDMI cable, not RCA jacks.
Here was my problem. One morning, I realized that my ONKYO receiver still controls my DVD and TUNER Audio - it utilizes my entire front and rear speakers when I am viewing DVDs and tuning in to the radio -- but when I watch a cable channel, my audio can only pick up from the internal speaker of my Panasonic Plasma --- my five speakers do not work! I tried to hack my receiver by connecting an RCA jack directly from the cable box to the ONKYO receiver - then it utilized my speakers - but the sound is not digital. I wanted my HDMI surround sound back!!
Is there any button which I have accidentally pressed which disabled my HDMI output to my Onkyo speakers?

Since you have the cable connected to the reciever thru the HDMI, you may have accidently changed the input source of the reciever from HDMI or digital to analog.
When you have the reciever set to listen to the cable, check the input mode and make sure it is set to use the HDMI or digital input and not the analog.
The rca jacks are analog, and they worked, so I think you have just solved your own problem without realizing it.
Let me know if this works and if so a good rating would be appreciated. Thanks and have a great day

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).
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.
Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
