I posted this in the Onkyo section as well, but thought it might be a TV related problem also, so I'm posting it here too.
First off I apologize if this is a noob question, but...well, I am a noob
I am pretty sure there is a VERY simple step I am missing but...here goes.
I have a TX-SR606 (not sure if there is a thread dedicated to the 606, but I think it's similar enough to the 605), a Pioneer PDP5020, and recently purchased an X-Box360.
Before i got the x-box, all my devices were hooked up via component (DVD and Cable Box) cable because a friend had some spares and donated them to the cause. Everything was working fine. When I got the x-box the other day, I decided to use the HDMI cable it came with and run it to the receiver. (So HDMI from x-box to receiver, and component from receiver to TV)
When I turned the x-box on, I heard the sound, but no video was going to the TV. So my first thought was that if I use HDMI in, it may have to go out through HDMI to the TV? (this seemed kinda dumb, but who knows. If not, maybe there is an option to tell the receiver to take the HDMI in and send out over component? I would have thought it would notice that there was no HDMI going out to the TV and just use the component but...)
So I then borrowed another HDMI cable from my friend and tried to connect the TV to the receiver via HDMI. But now when I select the input on the TV that correlates to the HDMI port used, all I get is static. (This is when the x-box is turned on. When it is turned off, it goes black, so I know it is trying to do something).
X-box is going to the HDMI IN labled game, and I made sure the receiver was set to that port. I also clicked setup and tried to assign it to that port like the manual says, but it didnt seem to do anything.
Is this a set-up issue on the receiver?
A set-up issue on the TV?
Or a possible defect of some sort?
Again, sorry for the dumb question...I just wanna play some x-box!!!
Oh, and I should note that when I connected the x-box via component and returned the TV to component, everything worked fine. (but I dont have enough component ports to be running everything that way, so this HDMI issue will have to be solved soon)
