Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver
Hi there, I am having trouble hooking my Wii up to my Onkyo receiver. It is all hooked up to the tv using HDMI cables. After trying to hook it up using the standard A/V (red, white and yellow) cables, I thought perhaps that was the problem and went out and bought Component cables hoping that would solve the problem, but no such luck...I know I am being pretty vague, but any help would be wonderful. Thank you.

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.

hdmi is video only
you will need to use the rca/phono inputs for audio.
you will need a stereo mini jack to steroe rca/phono
use the i/p marked aux/cd/
make sure the volume on the onkyo is turned DOWN before connecting any new input source.
The output from most laptops is designed for headphones so you may need to adjust the volume on the laptop DOWN as well.
Perhaps start off with laptop at 30% and the amp DOWN then increase the amp until you can hear the laptop sound.
To get good quality audio from a laptop you would be beter off with a USB sound card.
hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

Sounds like you may have a bad HDMI card my friend. I had an issue with my HDMI card that was causing blue dots to appear on the dark parts of the screen, when outputting 1080p over HDMI. This is a rather common issue, so it wouldn't surprise me if your HDMI board needs replacement - especially if you've ever experienced the infamous blue dot issue.

SOURCE: Has trouble getting input signal
This unit has a defective hdmi board,this is a common problem with this model. The unit is to be taken to a onkyo service center for exchange of the hdmi board under warrenty, if out of warrentyit will cost you several hundards of dollars.
