Question about Onkyo Audio Players & Recorders
I purchased an Onkyo receiver less than 24 hours ago, and after setting it up everything was working as it should. Then, late last night the sound for the FIOS dropped put when using the receiver. I can hear part of what makes up the sound, but main forward noise (speaking, etc) is completely silent. I've changed the port that the FIOS box is connected to, I've swapped HDMI cables with other devices (PS3, Wii U, ETC) that all work perfectly with the Onkyo. I've done a factory reset a couple of times, and nothing seems to work. Oddly enough, passthrough with the TV's main speakers works fine and I get all the sound that way.
If you are not hearing dialogue, then check your center speaker. Most voice tracks are routed to the center channel

SOURCE: Analog RCA input to HDMI output?
You have said the correct thing HDMI is digital therefore Analog will not pass.
You might have RCA audio outputs on your cable box so either send them into the TV from cable or into the AMP then use AMP volume to listen to TV audio (select unused input and remember it is for TV) the key is to remember that cable box will drive the initial vol so raise or lower cable vol then use AMP vol to obtain desired volume.

SOURCE: Onkyo 805 sub hook up problem
I made the same mistake when i hooked my REL sub up to the back of the 805.
The problem is there are 2 connectors on the back of the amp that are labeled as sub out. Look very closely, you will see that there are 2 grouped RCA outs. The RCA out group you are looking for differentiated by groups of "little white dots" all the way to the far right on the back of the amp. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Setting up Cable with HDMI
Yes, the firmware on your hdtv box has an old firmware, I switched my old hdtv box with a newer one box and the problem was solved. It seems that it can't work if your hooking up with DVI to HDMI cable to your receiver to tv. Your hd box must have an HDMI out otherwise it causes problems. I also have rx-v661 and i finally hooked up everything HDMI to the receiver and then to the tv and it was having the problem you speak of. After I switched out the hd box for a newer one everthing worked fine.

Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.
