I've had it with my whole system! I'm hoping someone here can help. I have the vsx-01txh receiver. We've been successful in setting up HDMI for only ONE component, our Pio Blu Ray player, and that was literally plug-and-play. Everything else is patched, and now we've added an XBox to the mess.
Here are the components as it now sits:
Pio Kuro 50" TV
Pio Blu Ray
We have HDMI out of the receiver into the the TV. The Blu Ray is hooked to the receiver, into the dedicated HDMI jack (labeled BD). When we tried to hook ANYTHING up to the HDMI jacks in the receiver, we get NO sound OR picture.
We have each separately and together read the manuals for ALL components so many times, I think we should have it memorized by now. Obviously we couldn't figure it out, so we patched everything, except the XBox because we have to buy YET ANOTHER set of cables to make that patch work. Before we do that, I thought I'd try my luck here.
Is there a simple means of getting the receiver to recognize all the components plugged into its HDMI jacks without fiddling with the settings? I don't give a rip about the quality of the sound at this point - ANY sound would be just fine! I just want to get something out of the investment we've made to go to HDMI. Eliminating a few coax/RCA cables along the way would be nice too.
Is this possible? Or am I stuck with patching everything? (Patching here means using the HDMI cables to plug directly into the TV and using RCA cables to patch the sound into the receiver from the components, with the exception of the xBox, where we're using the proprietary cable to connect to the TV and patching/passing thru the TV to the receiver.)
