Whats the point of resolution through if you still have to edit the picture mode to direct or custom??.
Which equipment do you want to do the Video?
If you have HD sources, then very little (if any) video processing is required.
I would set up your most critical source first.
Onkyo menu 1.1
Resolution should be SOURCE (not Through)
This will mean you can set each Source input separately.
Then select your most critical input, usually BRay
Then Menu Item 4.5 Picture Adjust>Picture Mode = Direct
If you want the BR player to go DIRECTLY to your display. As it already is likely to be 1080P/24hz, no more processing is required.
For other sources, as above, select the Source Input (check top right white on blue text) set them as Custom, and scroll down to Resolution. 1080p is likely the correct one.
Best of luck. If you struggle, try search my 2011 posts in 809, particularly the 9point guide.
