They do make HDMI to Component converter (I never use one before). You could try doing a reset on the TV if that is even possible.

Out of interest. Which make and model of TV do you have?

Have some questions about the Onkyo TX-NR616, this is currently the receiver we have in my condo's HT room. I have had Onkyo before (I'm a Denon fan) anyways I don't how how they "guys" set the receiver up but I always have some problems.

In your "Party Room" its divided into Lounge and HT Room, so Zone 1 (7.1) is HT and Zone 2 is the Lounge, but I can never get it to work properly. Does this receiver allow to play from multiple source?

Even sometimes when I want just to play music to the Lounge Z2.

Also when watching BR movies, isn't there an indication that the sound is True HD or DTS-HD?

First, get the Onkyo Remote 3 app for iPhone or Android - it is MUCH easier to control zone 2 and the sources (be aware that only ANALOG sources (for some stupid reason) can only be output to zone 2.

OK - I am flustered. My setup: Onkyo TX-NR616, Windows 7 Media Center, nVidia 750Ti. So, in Windows, I can set it to 7.1, and then test each individual channel separately fine, so I know the video card is outputting 7.1. But I have not been able to get surround sound from any TV channel or recorded TV show in Media Center! Some channels show PCM and some show Dolby (not sure what version). I have gone into the listening mode for PC (the HDMI input my HTPC is connected to) and NOTHING I pick gives me a peep out of anything except my subwoofer, center, and lt and rt front speakers! (Does it change immediately when you change it, so you have a live preview?)




Any ideas before I go crazy??

So a question about powered Zone2 - why can't I get 7.1 on Zone1 UNTIL I turn on Zone2?? Why if I enable powered Zone2 does it NEVER let the rear channels work??
