I looked at the user manual for your Onkyo HTIB.
Your problem could be due to the following:
1. Incorrect receiver setup of component inputs
2. Incompatibility of monitor with signal resolution
Forgive me if you've tried this already, but it looks like you have to assign the receiver input to the component input you used at the back. If you plugged the xbox 360 component cable to component input 1, you have to assign one of the receivers inputs (BD/DVD, VCR/DVR, CBL/SAT, GAME, AUX, TV/CD, or PORT) to the component input (IN1, or IN2).
The default assignment is BD/DVD is tied to IN1, CBL/SAT is tied to IN2. If you have NOT reassigned these two inputs, then try setting the input selector on your receiver to either of these two inputs.
If you have re-assigned these inputs to other components, then you'll have to get in to the menu system to reassign the inputs.
Unfortunately, the manual states, "The on-screen setup menus appear only on a TV that is connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to
the MONITOR OUT V or the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the AV receiver's display when changing settings."
Once you have your receiver configured correctly so that the input you choose is tied to the component input (IN1 or IN2) you've used on the back of your receiver for the xbxo360, check if you get a picture.
If you don't get a picture, try playing with the signal resolution you are sending out of the xbox 360. Your monitor might not accept 1080i (which should be 980x540 going to the monitor). Try 720p out of the xbox. This should be a standard resolution that a 1080p monitor can accept.
