Question about Onkyo TXSR508 Receiver

1 Answer

Hi, I have brought an ONKYO TX-SR508 receiver and seem to be having problem getting a true picture. I am connecting it to my projector. When I connect the blue ray through the receiver, the picture keeps on blinking. If i by-pass the receiver and connect the blue ray to the projector, I get a perfect picture. Can you please help?

The reason you are not getting a good picture is because of the HDMI interlink cable. Make sure that the HDMI cables you have bought are at least version 1.3a. May be one of the cables is v1.3a that is why you are getting OK picture when you connect the projector directly ( it might be an expensive cable ) . If you do not get v1.3 you may also buy v1.4 which is 3D ready.
The poor band width of the cable must be giving you a bad picture.
Now if both your cables are OK and you are still getting a bad picture you have faulty HDMI pass through circuit on your TX-SR508.

How to fix the HDMI board on Onkyo TX-SR608


If you look on the internet HDMI board failure on these Onkyo's seems quite a regular occurence.

Time to scrap the Onkyo and buy something with a better name - like Yamaha, Denon or Marantz.

Hi lechap,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008 as per his last post Feb 13.....

If I figure your concerns right, they are:
1. You have an iPod on an Onkyo IPod dock that you want to connect to an Onkyo receiver TX-302;
2. You have an Onkyo receiver TX-302 that you want to power a set of Bose Cinemate speakers;
3. the connectors on some do not fit or are not the same;
4. you want to know what goes to where.

If I may suggest:
a. connect the L/R Audio Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the L/R Audio IN of VIDEO 1 using a pair of RCA to RCA cable. Connect the S Video Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the Video IN of VIDEO 1 using an S Video to RCA Video cable. Thereafter if you want to watch a movie or play music from your iPod, you need to choose Video 1 in the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You can of course choose any other VIDEO 1~3;572fcdc.jpg34ab5d3.jpg

b. all other source/devices may be connected similarly using the same scheme on any of the free VIDEO / AUDIO inputs
c. of course the MONITOR OUT goes to your TV or projector.

With respect to the Bose Cinemate, it would not be technically correct to connect the Bose Cinemate speakers straight to the speaker out of the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You need to install another set of speakers to the speaker outs of the Onkyo receiver. The Bose Cinamate system's TV AUDIO could be connected to the TAPE OUT (or the AUDIO L/R OUT of VIDEO 1)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hoe to connect Bose Lifestyle 25 Home Theater System speakers to onkyo SRX-508


Do you mean TX-SR508? The following should work even if that is not the exact model.

The LS25 supports ONLY analog stereo audio input and the speakers themselves are NOT desigend to be driven by anything BUT the LS25 electronics.

If you still want to use the LS25 as speakers just run an RCA cable pair from VCR / DVR Out on the Onkyo to the AUX IN on the LS25 Music Center.

Does the display show "tuned" or "FM Stereo"? This would normally indicate a good reception. The tuner has a signal level threshold and if the signal gets to week, the receiver mutes to prevent noise in the speakers. Swithing to mono make reception less intolerant. Does the problem also occur, when you switch to mono?

Onkyo TX-SR508 cooling fan


I don't know the psecific answer but wouldn't it be easier and safer to just locate the fan turn-on signal and cheat it? The fan is already on a 12v feed. I don't think you want to arbitrarly place an inherently noisy (electrically) device like a fan on a 12v buss in an audio device.

Goof information. Have you eliminated or proven the Onkyo as a cause by going direct to the projector? Try another Input and/or Output. It's best to know which component is broken and if it's limited to a specific subset of its function.

Settings are also indicated. Run through the video setup again. If it just stopped, what preceded it?
