I have a problem with connecting to the HDMI source.
I am currently have one working device via HDMI - satellite decoder.
But I need to connect PC and other devices.

The following sources is not working:
* ASUS EAH4350 (ATI) (PC)
* nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] (PC)
* Raspberry pi (micro PC)
* xbox 360 (Gaming console)

My actual version of firmware:
Main: 87 1.08
MainUpdateMode Ver1.01/07615L
DSP 1st: SR8051 07601A
DSP 2nd: SR8052 07518A
DSP 3rd: SR8053 07518A
HDMI: 1.01/07706A
Video: 07606E00924ok

On the AVR display: No Signal

Can anyone recommend some firmware upgrade?

This receiver makes me mad, I'm disappointed. Wasted money. I do not recommend Onkyo TX-SR875.

People recommend to buy an HDMI splitter and connect to the TV for the picture and the sound separately to onkyo - for me nonsense.

Make sure to try each HDMI source device in each HDMI input on the AVR as one may work better for a particular source device than another. Also, HTPC connections can be tricky, sometimes requiring replacing the HTPC video board to make it work successfully. Although the following post was written with a Denon AVR in mind, you may still find the suggestions helpful to resolve your connection issue.

I am having similar problems with my 876. I've never done a firmware update and for some reason don't think this is the problem. I have a 600 and 805 that work very well so not sure if I am ready to throw in the towel on onkyo, but definitely disappointed with this issue.

Problem with Raspberry Pi resolved!

You need to disable EDID and set the resolution manually.

This should help raspberry pi users.
My WORKING /boot/config.txt:
List of available video modes:

Thanks for your help.

I like the term to describe the "hdmi_ignore_edid":
"Enables the ignoring of EDID/display data if your display is a crappy Chinese one".

They mean my AVR?
