Get a HDMI splitter like this http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_i...seq=1&format=2


Connect a HDMI cable from the receiver's HDMI out port to the INPUT port of the splitter, then one HDMI cable out from the splitter to your projector, another HDMI cable out from the splitter to your TV. Done.


Here's another one from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/HD-102-Powered...=hdmi+splitter


You're welcome!

Can anyone offer any advice? Today after watching a film on my htpc I shut the computer down and then reduced the volume from -15 too -35 before changing sources back to my cable box. When I did this there was a big bang in the room and my TX-SR608 turned itself off with a flashing standby light.

Almost immediately I was able to turn the receiver back on and it seems to work fine, but should I be worried about something?

I try to set the audessy reference level based on the content I am listening too. Before a film I have it set to 0, so could switching to my cable box which is at a higher reference level cause this? I've never had this problem before.

I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I do have my receiver plugged in via a power conditioner.

Please help!

Had a lightning storm at my house tonight and the power went off once. I get no picture off my receiver now. I've done a direct connection to my projector to make sure that it was fine. The projector is totally fine as is the connection and port in the equipment closet.

A BD, cable box, and xbox are hooked up to the receiver. I can hear audio on the cable box and xbox input with no video, and cannot hear audio off the BD input with no video. I just have the projector's black screen saying "no signal".

I have tried the "hold VCR and click Stand-by" reset and it does not work.

If anyone can shed some light on this I would really appreciate it. I'm really hoping the storm did not fry the HDMI board.

This is a pretty similar problem to the previous one. My problem is this. After coming home after a storm (relevant? idk), there was no signal. I thought maybe the cable was out and gave it most of the afternoon and then still nothing. The bluray and cable box are hooked up via HDMI and neither work but the audio for the Wii works fine as does the radio. I hooked the cable HDMI directly to the tv and got video but no sound. And what I found really funny is while everything was originally setup when my roommate unhooked the HDMI out from the cable box, the bluray signal came on. So it seems everything works individually but they no longer function together any more. Thoughts on this please. Is it the receiver? I originally thought it was till the bluray signal worked.

Hi! I have an Onkyo 608 that has been flooded with coffee (or something else). The HDMI board was damaged by the leaking and I cleaned it with pure alcohol, but nothing. Today I decided to make some measurements and the big problem that I found was this - no 12 volts to the intput of the 5 Volts regulator

The problem is that I can't find where from is this voltage going to the 5V regulator. I downloaded the service manual, but with no luck - still can't see the trace. I will measure the 1.2 and 3.3 Volt regulators tomorrow to see if there is damage.

The only reason that I want the HDMI is to Sync my TV with the receiver, so I could use only one remote.

I'll be thankful for more information about my problem - what should I measure to see if it's working. I want only to get the Lip Sync function works. Thanks!

I have a problem with getting audio from my Onkyo. I've recently moved and everything was disconnected. I wasn't planning on using the receiver until I got my home theater built. I was setting up my XBOX for my girlfriend's daughter and I only had my VGA cable with me. The TV doesn't have a VGA cable, so I was going to connect it to the receiver and then HDMI to the TV. My problem is that I can't seem to get any audio to work with it. If I use optical, the receiver says it is receiving and outputting the signal, but there is no sound from the TV. If I use the RCA for audio (on the PC input) it doesn't show that it's getting anything.

Does the receiver not pass audio back to the TV for some reason? I imagine if I hooked my speakers back up it would work fine, but that's not what I want to do. This is just a quick setup for kids.

Hi ChldsPlay, enable Audio TV Out under HDMI menu found under Hardware Setup.

For optical connection you'll need to assign the optical input to PC and assign HDMI PC input as none (-----).

I am a relatively new user and am having issues correcting some audio issues with my current setup and would appreciate any help you guys can provide. I havea relative basic setup, LG 4k model LA9650, DIRECTV GENIE, ps3 (not very important) and a raspeberry pi all connected via hdmi into my onkyo tx-sr608.

Unfortunately I am only able to use a 4.1 setup. I would like to utilize the tv speakers for dialogue and receiver speakers for my surround. Within my receiver swttings I can select it to push tv speakers but I then get stereo for all of my surround speakers. Under hardware\hdmi in my receiver settings I have tried RIHD with audio rerurn channel on, this only seems to work with the raspberry and doesnt with directv. I have lip sync enabled on my receiver and tv (with bypass selected qhich seems to work with the raspebrry but not directv).

My goal is this; utilize my tv speakers for pushingnthe dialoge similar to a center speaker, but have the additional option for surround with my receiver when wanted. I do have toslink cables available as well.

I assume I am missing something basic but I have gone brain dead with this and am obviously not a pro, so any help is very appreciated. Please let me know if I need to provide any more info

Thanks JChin.

Now I'm having another problem. I reconnected one of my speakers, and I'm not getting anything from it. When I went to the setup, the speaker setup option was greyed out. Any ideas?

Most likely due to Audio TV out being set to "On".

Under the Hardware Setup, try setting HDMI Control (RIHD) to "On" and this will set Audio TV Out to "Auto".

Does anybody have the infamous hdmi board failure on their 608?? Im not even sure how long ive had the issue since ive only used zone 2 to output the a multiroom niles system for the longest time. I have tried every avenue at onkyo inlcuding their forum, email, phone and keep getting pushed towards their ****** trade in program. They refuse to include the 608 into their new service program, but this model has also been known to have the issue. Is there any way to start a petition to include the 608 into the program?

I tried this, and unfortunately it didn't work. I can't think of anything else to try for why I wouldn't be getting audio from the speakers (or be able to edit them).

Hi guys I have an onkyo tx Sr 608. Have been using it since last 4 years. But recently I am facing a problem ml the receiver gets stuck on one particular source say game and stays stuck none of the buttons or remote works. Even the standby/ on button doesn't work. The only way to switch of or on is by unplug/plug. But this doesn't solve the problem as soon as I plug it back in the source stays on game and gets stuck again as before and no buttons what's ever work. Any idea guys or do u think it will need repairs.

I recently noticed that when my Wii is on, my subwoofer is not. Wii is hooked up with component video and analog R/L audio. What's more is that I have no option to change the audio settings when the Wii is on. That is, I use "DolbyPLII Movie TV Logic" for all my other inputs, (Xbox, PS3, Fios) but if I attempt to change it with Wii, the OSD says "not available."

No issues with subwoofer with any other source, but all other sources are HDMI instead of analog.

Only audio options I see on the Wii are to change from "stereo" to "surround." Neither activates the sub.

In the Onkyo menu, the "speaker set up" tab is grayed out unless I have it set to my HDMI input for Fios.

Can anyone help me figure this out?

Update:

After a bit more digging, I found the thread about top mistakes when setting up Onkyo Receivers:

Apparently, having the HDMI audio out to the TV on can wreak havoc on everything else. I turned it off and everything seems to be ok. Not only that, but I now have options to adjust the sound field to include THX options and Dolby Digital options. Before, the receiver wasn't recognizing any of those for any input. This is both great, because I assume I'm getting the best sound possible now and also a bummer because it appears I haven't been using my receiver in an optimal fashion for about 2 years.

As far as the subwoofer goes, I had the powered sub turned down to about 10% and the levels on the Onkyo for the sub at +6. I turned the powered sub up to about 30% and have the all the way down and the levels now at -5. Where I Couldn't hear the sub at all on the Wii before, now I can hear it but it appears there just isn't nearly as much low level sound in the analog as there is through the digital channels.

Anyone facing lip sync ONLY with 3D turned on?

When I put in a 3D blu-ray in my PC and play it via PowerDVD 14 Ultra i get significant lipsync issues. This happends with all 3D Blurays.

Transformers 3 and 4. Star Trek. I have noticed the intensity of the delay/sync fluctuates throughout a single movie.

Onkyo 608
LG 55LM6700
Nvidia - GTX 770
Intel i5 3570k
8 GB Ram


Video mode is set to through.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,
Am not certain if this/similar issue has been discussed earlier, if so, please guide me to the page.
I am facing an issue with setting up my new Intel NUC D34010wykh as HTPC. The NUC, works great with my LG 27" monitor (direct hdmi link), which i used for initial setup. But as soon as i took it to the Home theatre, (Onkyo 608 - Epson 8100 projector) the video became unreliable. I have had the HT rig now for over 4 years without an issue. I have chromecast installed, aux in on Onkyo, which works great. Have tried switching cables but it did not work. Interestingly, It is ok upto booting up to the home screen of Win 8.1 (32 bit) but as soon as i try to navigate around the computer, the picture goes blank. There is a similar pattern on internet as well. Its ok when i press the home button on the Logitech k400, it goes to the Google home page. The google home page has no issues. But as soon as i press any of the book marks (eg youtube) the picture disappears. Therefore, i am assuming this is not an HDCP/ EDID handshake issue. I am assuming the issue lies with the Onkyo. I am still on the old firmware that it came with in 2010. Will a FW update resolve the issue? Anyone here faced a similar issue... any help would be appreciated.

I'm an idiot. When I moved I stuck the headphone adaptor into the jack so I wouldn't lose it. When I got to the new place, I never noticed it because it didn't really stand out all that much. Pulled it out and everything works fine.
Noose's Avatar Noose 11:57 AM 11-15-2014
I did exactly the same thing. Thought my receiver was toast. Took a day to notice the adapter in the jack.

Sorry, the culprit turned out to be the Epson 8100 and a FW update has fixed it. The Onk 608 is great, four years and still in love...

Did a search and did not see any posts on 4K in here.

I realize the 608 does not do HDMI 2.0 and thus won't do 4K upscale. But if all I want to do is use it for physical HDMI switching will it pass-thru the 4K signal?

IE if my TV is 4K and the box sending it is 4K will the HDMI 2.0 signal get from the box to the TV? Since the physical connection and cabling standard did not change going to HDMI 2.0, this should work, correct?

Hello All, I'm a newbie to the board and hoping my fellow SR608 friends can help me with something stumping me.

It seems that my receiver won't save my audio settings (at least some of them) configured through the audio meno, setttings set such as the A/V sync configured in the setup configuration however do store.

I'm trying to specifically adjust: Audio -> Bass and Audio -> Subwoofer level.

I do have a self powered sub if that makes any difference at all (I assume it wouldn't impact the receiver storing the setting but who knows at this point)

Appreciate the help all.

Hi jeagley, the Home button >Audio menu for subwoofer level (and center level) settings are temporary adjustment. Go the "Speaker Setup" (menu 2) under "Level Calibration" to set the subwoofer and center to save.
