easiest fix is to take all hdmi straight to tv. then come out of tv with optical cable to your receiver. that way what ever your watching will automatically be sent to the receiver thru optical. you even will get dolby dig. also you can have audio from your tv when you dont want to use your surround. keeps receiver on one input also.

Onkyo 6.1 surround
Check the settings on your cable box for "Audio" settings and check the output. Should be set to "Dolby Digital" If you need more help, post a comment with the make and model of your cable box and I can walk you thru setup. Hope this helps

Onkyo TX-SR606 Reciever - 20 sec after power on, screen is green
The HDMI version in your receiver is 1.1 or 1.2 which will not pass video as it should. It's not Onkyo's firmware at issue, it's HDMI and in all receivers up to 2008 model year this is a very heated problem! The only fix is to run FIOS directly to the TV via HDMI and run it's audio to your receiver with Digital Coaxial or Optical. Hope this helps

Onkio TX-SR500 don't leave stand-by

With the unit unplugged, remove the top cover and use an
ohmeter to check the 10 power transistors on the large heat sink; Q6050 thru 54 and
Q6060 thru 64. If you find blown transistors (R<1 ohm from E to C) you'll
need to replace them. After removing the shorted transistors, also check the associated
large ceramic current sharing resistors, R6100 thru 04 next to the output
transistors. These are dual 0.22 ohm, 2W resistors that typically fail open if
overstressed. These are both common failures resulting from overloading the
speaker outputs that will cause the proctection circuit to shut down the power
supply at turn on. Good luck.

I recently bought TX-SR605 7.1 receiver it was
Its possible that the Receiver is going into protection mode and possible some speaker cable might have touched the body or with each other.
Remove all inputs and outputs and then restart the receiver. If it starts then you are lucky. Connect all cable and wiring properly and ensure that they do not touch each other. You might have to reset the microprocessor if the recevier has got.
If the problem persist then let me know to further the trobleshooting.

Bose 901 equalizer
I wrote most of this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine.
There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do.
The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great!
A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.
You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.
** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.
Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.
Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.

Video thru Onkyo TX-RS606 is only black&white
are you using HDMI cables or component. First I would try unplugging the composite and component video cables while the receiver is off. Plug them back in and turn it back on. If that does'nt work try setting the receiver to factory default and redo the settings. You can find how to reset to default in your user manual.

The receiver goes on standby mode when volume is high
Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.
The SR 605 contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In an unlikely event, it may cause it to lock up. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait for 10 to15 seconds and then plug it back again.
Please also check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem. If you still can’t resolve the issue yourself, try resetting
the AV receiver/AV amplifier before going on to opening the Receiver.
To reset the Receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding the [VCR/DVR] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button. "Clear" will appear on the display and the Receiver will enter Standby mode. (note that resetting your receiver will delete your custom settings as well as your radio presets).
If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.
This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck. Thanks for using FixYa!
