In my case, I changed HDMI to AUTO because I got better results with a Flip Camcorder plugged into the 606 than I did with THROUGH.
Thanks for that. Have it all set up now, but having some other issues Im hoping somone can help out with
I have just set up my Onkyo 606 and Jamo S506 5.1 pack. The amp is getting sound without a problem, but when I crank it up, it shuts down into standby mode once I hit about 45-50 on the volume???
Couple of things that may be causing it, not sure though cos I'm a noob:
- The rear speakers aren't connected yet (need to get brackets for them), but the amp is wired. As soon as I get the brackets I will be right to go without the need to get back in behind the amp. Could this be causing it?
- Have not yet gone through the manual in detail to 'set up' the speakers. Have spent many hours on it today and am buggered, so I will be doing this tomorrow. I believe this needs to be done for optimal performance, ie tell the amp I am bi-amping, large fronts, small rears etc?
Everything is plugged in via HDMI, with one HDMI out to the TV.
Any other suggestions, or anyone experienced this before?
