Update on my PS3 and the receiver. Well, my PS3 officially does not like the receiver. I thought it was doing well in HDMI Input #4, but just now I went to turn it on and got nothing... no picture, no sound. Just the blue screen the Onkyo sends to the TV. None of the other inputs will work with the PS3. If I do get it working, it's only temporary. So now the question is, would any PS3 not like my receiver or is it just mine? I'm going to hook my fiend's up next week when he comes over. His is one of the later older "fatter" PS3s, so it's newer than mine. If his works, I suppose I'll keep the home theater. If it doesn't, I don't know what I'm going to do. I got this HTiB to use primarily with the PS3 which is my Blu-Ray player. Right now, it's appearing to be a PS3 issue for whatever reason, because my HD DVD player and Direct TV work just fine hooked up via HDMI to the Onkyo.
Time to test the XBox 360 on it and see if that gives me any problems.

Just a wild guess/shot in the dark kind of thing...
Does this Onkyo upconvert? I didn't think it did, but I could be wrong. Where is this in the settings? I'll have to check it out.EDIT: UPDATE
Okay, hooking up my XBox 360 via HDMI through the receiver made something click. The XBox 360 had the same symptom as the PS3 except the XBox 360 was outputting sound (The PS3 wouldn't). I began thinking why the XBox 360 and PS3 were not working but my DirectTV receiver and HD DVD player were. That's when the light bulb turned on. My XBox 360 and PS3 are set to 1080p
. My DirectTV and HD DVD players are outputting 1080i
because they do not support 1080p. When I changed my 360 and PS3 to 1080i, wouldn't you know, they work. It would now appears my Onkyo receiver is the one causing issues. 1080p signals are screwing it up. 1080i doesn't look bad, but I shouldn't have to gimp my settings just because the stupid receiver doesn't like 1080p signals, especially since the receiver is supposed to support 1080P! So if anyone else is having HDMI issues, try setting your devices to 1080i or lower and see if you get a picture. I'll call Onkyo later today and see what they say, but I'm thinking this set is going back for a new one. How is 1080p working for everyone else?
(And yes, my TV supports 1080p)
