Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

5 Answers

I cannot get video signal from my Samsung p1590 Blu Ray player via HDMI to pass through my Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver. I get video if I connect Blu Ray player directly to TV, and have tried all HDMI ports on Onkyo and the Blu Ray will still not pass through however I can get video from all HDMI ports when tried with another device. I have tried using 3 different HDMI cables that work with other equipment and still no video signal. If I turn on Blu Ray player while Receiver is already on, I can get a few seconds of video to pass through at 720X480, then signal drops and nothing. Is there some setting on the AV receiver that needs to be modified to make this work? It appears to pass through 480p video but nothing higher? I have also reset both the receiver and Blu Ray player back to factory settings. Nothing seems to work. Please HELP!!

    Both the AV Receiver and the Blue Ray player appear to both be working fine because I have tested each independently, it is just when I try to get them to work together. They are not making a proper "handshake". Is there a way on the Onkyo 606 to adjust the HDMI video from the Blue Ray player. It appears to do ok with 480p, however anything greater seems to be the issue.

    Thanks for your comments. How can I change the pass through settings on the Onkyo 606? The only settings that I have been able to find are those where you assign the type of video input, ie HDMI, Component, or Digital. How can I change the resolution of the video that it is passing to the TV?

    I finally figured out the problem. The video signal from the Samsung BD-P1590 was trying to pass to the Onkyo 606 at 1080p. I connected the Samsung directly to the TV and it worked fine. Went through set up menu on Samsung and changed video to 1080i and hooked back up to Onkyo and worked awesome. Onkyo must not be able to pass direct 1080p, the highest must be 1080i. Thank you to all who offered suggestions!

I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:

I would write them via email here:

However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:

(seems you may have to assign the digital input)

http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/QuickHookup/TX-SR606_QSS_En_A.pdf?CFID=918117&CFTOKEN=40624545&jsessionid=f0306ea8a0d68bb60a49102e3e5510576756


Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.

Thanks for using FixYa!

    I read your second comment before I responded and then sent you what I had found about assigning the digital input.... i.e part of the hand shake process. I did not get any feedback on your digital assignment attempt. On hold for now....

    3rd post asking if you assigned the digital input? Still no response and your question has gone back to the main menu multple times. You need to communicate with someone so we can hopefully solve your problem.

    After digging it seems video processing this is a known problem with the 606. Take a look at what CNET had to say about it.

    I don't think there is anything you can do about it other than a direct connection from component to your tv and then take the sound from TV to the 606.

Thanks to the suggestions here, I got mine working again.

I updated the firmware and after that, I'd get apx 2 sec of display and then nothing. I hooked up a standard video cable and voila, I could get the picture. I then went in and saw that the new firmware set the output back to 1080p. Since I have an old 1080i plasma display, this obviously didn't work. Corected the 1590 settings and it's good again.

Thanks!

For what its worth, I too had the same problem with the same setup (Samsung 1590 Blu-Ray - Onkyo TR606 - Samsung 52"A650). It got to the point where I ended up returning the Blu-Ray player to the store since the purpose of getting the Blue Ray was to route it through the Home theater system. A few weeks later I bought the same Blu-ray from another retailer because the price was too good to pass up and my old DVD player was starting to die on me. This time it works just fine. The only change I made was to run it through a different HDMI input port on the Onkyo and run the Firmware update that Samsung sent with the Blu-Ray player. I don't necessarily think it was all the 606's issue since I've also read about issues with the Samsung 1590 / 1600 handshaking.

Hi,


My cousin also have the same setup as you have (samsung P1590 + Onkyo TX-SR606 + samsung 52" LCD LN52A650) we tried different HDMI cables and still cannot display using onkyo on a higher resolution of 1080i. The only resolution capable using Onkyo is on 480p. We tried to research and found a forum saying "the bad side" of Onkyo TX-SR606 is it Downconverts 1080i component video signals to 720p when outputting over HDMI. 720p to 480p.. but were thinking why 1080i downconverts it to 480p.

Looks like a very highly discussed problem on the support forums on the internet. Looks like people have had problems connecting blue ray player via HDMI through the Onkyo 606.

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-13973_102-0.html?threadID=313677
I do have the Onkyo 606 and have had no problems with it, but so far have not used any Blue ray player.
An interesting comments in one of the posts on the above forum mentions

"I have the 606 setup to pass HDMI video "Through", and I have the P1500 setup to output 1080p at 24fps"

Looks like this setup works for the person who posted it.,
Worth a try - otherwise you might try calling Onkyo. They may have issued a firmware upgrade for the 606.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

No video


HDMI has had a multitude of issues and yours is one of them. Your receiver has either 1.1,1.2,1.2a ver HDMI. If it's still under warranty, you can have it upgraded to 1.3b which is the current and working version. So far so good. If it's out of warranty, it's a 200-300 $ repair. If you just use HDMI directly to your TV, providing you have enough HDMI inputs on the set, you can just run optical or digital coaxial to the receiver and all will work fine. Hope this helps.

Onkyo tx-sr606 turns off during loud dvd sounds.


It sounds like you have a defective unit. I would contact the manufacturer and ask to RMA it.

I am trying to get the volume bar on my tv screen.It works on everything else but not cbl/sat. Receiver is tx-sr606. Thanks


en order to help out here a few questions need to be asked? Is the CBL/SAT connection VIA HDMI? Some HDMI signals will not pass CC and or On-screen display (OSD) via certain video modes. If all is analog video, not a problem, if mixed with component and HDMI and analog, you may experience issues. Let me know your thoughts and the best of luck.

Picture sound blackout (blink) when cable box/receiver HDMI used


Onkyo service told me, the second timethat I called them, that there is a known HDMI handshake issue with Motorola and Atlanta Scientific cable boxes. The only solution, and it was a solution, is to connect the box through the HDMI 1 port ONLY. All the other (2,3,4) result in blinking/dropping of signal. I did this, changed the cable/satelilte setting to HDMI 1 and all is well.

No DTS-HDMA or Dolby TrueHD shown on display


DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD cannot be passed to your receiver via bitstream on the PS3. DTS-HDMA cannot be decoded either so you're out of luck there.
Dolby TrueHD can be decoded internally on the PS3 assuming your firmware is up to date. Set the Blu-ray HDMI output to PCM and you can then pass it to your receiver.
If this doesnt work, do a system update on your PS3.

ONKYO TX-SR606 Single output to TV


Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^
