Ps3 defaults to 576p when connected through onkyo 606 receiver
Help Please! PS3 defaults to 576p on HDMI when connected through Onkyo 606 on HDMI to Sony 46x3500 TV
I've tried soft reset on PS3 to detect new HDMI settings, but it keeps only finding 576p! (Onkyo picks up audio formats OK though)
When PS3 is connected direct to TV and reset it finds 1080p straight off.
Sky HD is also connected through Onkyo 606 on HDMI and resolution changes to 1080i fine.
I've tried changing around port assignments and cables but same problem consistently happens.

Hi In this configration you will not get surround sound. Because tv is not able to reproduse the surround sound through its out put from the HDMI input. You have to connect the HDMI of PS3 to the Onkyo receiver and the HDMI Monitor Out of the Onkyo to the TV. This can only done if the Onkyo AVR Have HDMI IN/OUT option.
If not the connect the Optical out of PS3 to any one of the optical input of the Onkyo receiver. After that you have to goto the setup Menu the Onkyo and assing the optical input in wich you have conncted the PS3.
Aslo the following setting in PS3
Menu>>> Settings >>> Sound Settings >>> Audio Output Settings >>> Select the connector..= DIGITAL OUTPUT (OPTICAL) Ajin
No but you may be able to help me. I have the same amp and ps3. I have HDMI leads from both but cannot get sound or picture. I do get the set up menu which means it recognises the HDMI lead. How is yours set up ?
I am sorry about your issue,. If the reset did not resolve your issue the receiver would need to be serviced. It if was purchased from an authorized seller less than 2 years ago it would be under warranty. Thank you. Onkyo USA
i hate to say it i got the same problem and the only way i sorted was a master reset which means u have to do all the set up again and asign all the hdmi again but since i done that no problems to do this un plug the lot for an hour reconnect everything then push and hold the vcr button and push stand by a message will say clear on the receiver then it is back to when u frist got it out th box hope this helps
Firstly i suggest going into the Onkyo setup menu. Make sure that in "source settings" i think that's the menu option) that the input e.g. dvd is set to receive HDMI. then go into the settings for DVD and ensure that resolution is set to auto, then go into the monitor out settings (option 1 on main seyup menu) and make sure that main monitor out is set to HDMI and auto resolution.
ok the problem might not be with your receiver it is with your direct tv settings. Double check to make sure you go to the format and set it up to be fixed or 1080i whichever will give you the highest resolution. Check your manual for the direct tv receiver. If this is all correct for the DTV then you must go into the setup on the receiver and at hardware icon toward bottom check on that box, now goto the hdmi settings and make sure it is set to through. this will allow the best picture with no upscaling which will degregade picture for blu ray. so your direct tv will be only 1080i but very impressive. if you still want to upscale you can then you have to change the hdmi settings from before to upscale 1080p . I just hope that your dtv can output 1080i it will give a better picture than 480p even if both are upscaled to 1080p
Oh i forgot to ask if you are connected through hdmi to the tv. Hdmi is the only option for upscaling
The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.
I have a similar setup and am having problems of my own, but i've got it somewhat working at the moment.
I have the TV connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI output port.
I have the PS3 connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI input port 1.
I went on the receiver and followed the instructions in the manual to setup the DVD function on the receiver (i chose to call my ps3 a dvd) to use HDMI-1. I can't remember the button combination as i'm not at my hosue right now, but it was in the HDMI section of the manual (page 44 on my manual). Essentially I had to tell the receiver to enable HDMI for the DVD function rather than being defaulted to "No". At that point, with the default ps3 setup, I was able to get video to pass through.
Next, i went into the video options on the ps3 and changed it to 1080p (since my tv supports that).
Where I"m having my problem is that the sound from the ps3 outputs directly to the TV and doesn't output on my receiver for some reason.
How I've rigged that to work is to take the HDMI to RCA cable that came with my PS3 and i plugged in the Red and White wires on the back of the receiver in the DVD section of inputs. At that point the sound comes through the receiver.
What I don't know how to do and would really like to know is how to get the sound to output on my receiver via HDMI only and not with the extra cable.
Anyway, if i'm making sense above and you follow that, you should be up and running (but maybe not in an optimal configuration).
Let me know if you ahve any questions.
Also, if anyone knows the solution to my issue, i'm all ears.
