I just purchased an onkyo tx-sr606 receiver. I am running two hdmi cables into it(from a blue ray and HD cable box) and a HDMI to DVI into my mitsu TV. If the TV is off I get sound through the receiver, if I turn the TV on I get no picture and no sound, if I turn to a non HD channel I will get a picture(480i) but no sound. I just replaced my HDMI to DVI cable but that did not help. Anyone have any advice?

Going DVI to HDMI works fine, but the other way is not so simple. In order to accomplish what you need, you need to strip the audio off the HDMI signal. Otherwise the edid handshake will fail and the DVI display will say "what the...?"

There is one company offering a product called HDC that should solve your problem. look for Digital Extender or RTCom USA.
