If you don't already have one (and I don't have any way of knowing whether or not you do because it isn't mentioned in this problem description) you would need to get an hdmi to dvi cable. It does not carry sound. If you have the adaptor piece that you attach to the end of an hdmi cable that doesn't always work as well for whatever reason.

However now that I am looking at the rear of you Onkyo I don't see that either of the hdmi inputs on it have a corresponding audio input to accommodate hdmi to dvi situations such as these. I was going to recommend connecting a 3.5 mm minijack cable between the computer and the Onkyo or rather a cable that has one 3.5 minijack end and a red and white RCA audio cable on the other end. The only problem I forsee with doing so is that when you select the function/input on the Onkyo you wll not be able to choose one for both picture and sound when connecting with you Dell. Unfortunately it appears that the Dell will have to be connected directly to a television.

How do I program hdmi imputs on a txsr 506

You don't program hdmi. The manual describes all that stuff and the unnamed product at the other end of the cable plays a part, too.

I have my television, cable box, and apple tv running into the tuner with HDMI cables with the tuner hooked up to surround speakers for the sound. I'm having trouble separating the audio and video. I would...

The only way you can do this is by connecting the Cable Set Top box HDMI directly to the TV HDMI input and switching the TXSR508 to Apple TV. And if you want to hear the Cable sound through the TXSR, connect analogue audio out of the TV to one of the analogue inputs of the TXSR ( Aux or Video In ). You may not get the Cable TV's Dolby 5.1 sound but you will get stereo sound which on using the TXSR's dsp setting ( ProLogic II ) can be made into 5.1.

How to connect a turntable to Onkyo txsr 500

Just like most contemporary AV Receivers, there is no built-in Phono preamp in this unit so if your TT doesn't have one internally, you'll need to get an aftermarket Phono Preamp somewhere to PREamplify and frequency-balance the minute Phono Cartridge output to a useable Line Level you can send to any available Line Level input on the Receiver (CD, Aux, whatever) .

No audio sound from HDMI connection from TV to Onkyo 606 amp.

you have the output of the receiver going to the input of the TV?

i believe that you should be running the TV output to the receiver input to get your sound from the TV to the receiver and thus speakers.

the easiest setup is to just run your cable box and DVD player HDMI's into your TV inputs. then run another HDMI from the TV output to the receiver input.

Here are your options:

1. An electrical problem, where your receiver has a grounding problem.
2. Your speaker wire connections are actually touching each other and that's why your receiver is not turning on.

Ps3 defaults to 576p when connected through onkyo 606 receiver

You have to tell the PS3 what the Okyo can do and it probably cannot do 1080P 60Hz (but can likely do 1080P 24Hz).  Try ticking more resolutions in the PS3s setup
