It worked for me after I upgraded the Philips TV firmware. It broke again stopped working last week.
Philips TV firmware - you can get it from the Philips website. (I suspect Direct TV issues a software upgrade and broke it again)

This may sound silly, but are you changing the channel to the HDMI channel (one of the AV channels)

How do I connect a Sony KDL55EX620 HD TV to a stereo receiver. I am using the HDMI cable from a DirectTV receiver. How do I get the audio to my stereo?


the audio comes out of the Direct TV reciever, OR Audio OUT on the television. Some TVs that take the signal HDMI, do not put sound back out, and in that case, sound signal must come from the reciever box.

Each component, like DVD of Blu Ray will need to have a signal wired to the stereo unit.

I was hooking up my sisters surround reciever for her and used an optical cable to the reciever from the TV. Her TV gets signal from the cable box via coax and uses HDMI from DVD player. I am stumped that...


srry but the tv is not capable of sending hdmi audio through its outputs the dvd player audio must be run through rca red and white or black if you have digital audio out to the back of the receiver on its own channel

No audio from pc connected using hdmi


Are you not getting audio to the television speakers and the onkyo reciever speakers when connected HDMI thru the reciever or just the television. If it is just thru the television then it is because the reciever is grabbing the HDMI audio signal and converting it so it does not reach the TV. If it is both then try changing the HDMI signal output from PCM to DOLBY DIGITAL on the computer. Your reciever may not be able to process the PCM signal of the computer. Does the reciever show a PCM or DOBLY DIGITAL display when HDMI is hooked up to it?

Connected to a sat. we have no sound when we put the T.V. to H.D


What cabling are you using? component? (blue red and green) or HDMI? if you are using component then make sure you also plug the red and white RCA cables in the "audio in" inputs. People commonly think that the component cables do it all but they only carry a video signal. If you are running HDMI through an AV reciever you may need to run an optical cable as well as most AV recievers (unless you buy top of the range) can only switch HDMI video but not sound.

Connected to direc tv box with no sound or pic


The PS3 is connected to your TV via one of the inputs on the backside of the set? If so, the input you used can be selected from the remote or from your menu buttons on the physical TV. The remote will have a button labeled video(video inputs) and by depressing it you can scroll through different selections ie... Svideo, TV, colorstream 1 & 2, HDMI(which is probbaly the best, but you will need an HDMI cable)

Panasonic CT-32SF36 isn't getting video from A/V receiver


Hello, I hope this message can help you, After reviewing the Panasonic TV info, and the Yamaha reciever info., I have found on page 19 of your owners manual for the Yamaha reciecver that you can connect the the cable box HDMI cable to the reciever, but the reciever needs to connect to the T.V. HDMI.
I see your T.V. has S-video in and your reciever has S-video out, what about your cable box if it has S-video than I would connect all your device together through the S-video jacks.
A further note is you can't down grade the signal from the cable box through the reciever to the T.V., so even though the technology is there on your cable box, it's not there on the T.V.. On that note there is 2 options 1) buy a new T.V. with HDMI inputs. 2) connect the system together using S-video or component cables (RCA). It will give you almost the same quailty if you use good cables. I hope this will help you and I look forward to helping you in the future.

Receiving "Unlock" message and "Not Used" on my reciever


The HDMI inputs are pass through inputs only. The reciever cannot recieve any sound signals through the HDMI's. The reciever acts as a selector switch for the HDMI inputs. Whatever input you have selected on the reciever is the one that is being sent through the output to your TV. The "unlock" display shows when there is no sound signal sent to the reciever. There is no code to unlock. This is the reciever's way of telling you that there is no sound being sent to it from that input. Since there is no sound being processed from the HDMI's, you need to hook up an additional audio cable from the device to the reciever (preferrably an optical cable). When the reciever recieves an audio signal, it will then "unlock" and you will get sound. The only purpose for the HDMI jacks on this reciever is to give you a bonus HDMI jack so you only have to use one on your TV. I know it is confusing. I had to look into this problem myself, so I'm happy to help. Higher end recievers will actually recieve and process sound signals from the HDMI's.

That's what I got for trying to save a couple bucks on the cheeper model! Although it is still a good reciever.
