This is my problem?

I have the Onkyo 706 receiver and I run my PS3 and XBOX 360 through it using HDMI cables (1.3a). I have recently bought the Samsung 50" Plasma series 6 TOC.

When I play video games on both systems I get blue pixelation in the dark areas. I plugged the HDMI from both systems directly into the TV and the blueness goes away. So it only appears when I have it going through the receiver.

I recently had a Toshiba DLP and I never had this problem.

I am begging for some help here, I just got my system set up using all HDMI's and I really dont want to have to go back and use optical cables to my receiver and plug directly into the TV.

I know you guys are the best, please help.

Thanks

Calibrate your TV then come back if the problem persists. Avia is the best disc to use for calibration. Followed by Digital Video Essentials and the good old cheap-o route of the THX Calibrator you can find on any Star Wars movie as well as many others.

Always remember: The pessimist is never disappointed.

Hey,

Thanks for replying, I tried it and it didnt work. The picture does look better though. lol

Its definately something to do with my receiver, because when I plug the PS3 and XBOX directly to the TV it goes away.

Looks like a nice receiver. I'm guessing you tried messing around w/ the settings on the Onkyo? Are there many setting options for HDMI?

I am having the same problem with the TX-SR806. It occurs all the time in some games, and only sometimes in others. Did you find a solution to this problem?
