I'm new so please bare with me. I grew up around pioneer receivers (my dad has had them all his life however stumped as well on this). I recently invested in buying a VSX-23TXH. Looks great. I'm new to these types of quality receivers. However, I can google and read a manual so that a plus! Everything so far is great. I hooked everything up. Ran the full auto mcacc. Everything checked out correctly. However the problem I'm having is with the xbox 360. BTW my visio tv is widescreen does support 1080p (as well as 1080i 720p and 420p as I manually set the xbox to these displays and they worked). I dont have the exact model of visio in front of me right now but if needed I can add it. The problem is I can get sound but no video via HDMI connections. Below is the current scheme I tried.
- Kuro turned off on reciever.
- Hdmi output set to all (have also tried hdmi OUT 2 only) in the receiver settings.
- Xbox hdmi out to hdmi input 1 on the receiver (not the BD hdmi)
- Receiver hdmi out 2 to hdmi input 1 on tv.
- Same NEW cables (make and model) for both connection 6ft 10.2 GBPS.
I get sound no problem however video is a no go. If i hook up xbox to tv everything works. I also get the on screen settings via the receiver so i know the connection from receiver to tv works. So IMO this rules out bad cables. I've tried switching between inputs on tv and as well as playing musical input/output on the receiver. As well as switching hdmi out to 1, 2, and all on receiver. Nothing seems to work. Now typically I get "no signal" on tv, however while monkeying around i got a "not supported" as well last night (dont exactly recall what the setup was at that point). I've also noticed that the xbox will auto the output video setting. So for instance it goes to (i memorized the menu on the xbox so i could edit it while there was no picture) hdmi 1080p widescreen while connected to tv. I then hooked it up to the receiver and then had it auto adjust in the xbox menu settings then unplugged it and back into tv. The video came up and set it went auto to 1080p no widescreen. So it looks like when its hooked to the receiver it doesn't do the widescreen output. However I have a widescreen tv. Is it possible the receiver can't take the 1080p signal for xbox and then adjust it to widescreen for my tv? Cause like I said I got the "not supported" at one point when I power cycled in this order:
- receiver on
- xbox on
- tv on
The idea was that once the receiver was on the xbox would auto to what the receiver needed, then once i turned the tv on the receiver should convert that to what the tv supports. I tried a few other sequences and either got "no signal" or "not supported". I'm going to try, receiver on, tv on, xbox on tonight. Maybe that would work better idk. Just shooting from the hip.
I'm sorry about all my rambling I just wanted to make sure whoever reads this would have the most info as to what I've attempted to do. Thanks in advance for any help. Currently I have the xbox to the tv via hdmi then the audio out from the tv to the receiver which isnt' what I want in the long run.
