Question about Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver
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)
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!

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.

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.

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.
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.
