I have replaced all cables, as well as the cables connected to monitor out. Any ideas?
I've got a very similar setup (MythTV and PS3 connected via HDMI), and have been having the same issue for a few weeks. This setup was working perfectly for me ever since I got it two years ago, but lately I'm getting no signal from either of the HDMI inputs. When the problem started happening a few weeks ago, I had been able to get the signal working by fiddling with various things or just waiting a long time and switching between the inputs on the receiver (while my dinner gets cold), but last night I tried everything I could think of and just couldn't get it to work. I can go into the receiver's setup menu and that picture shows up fine, it's just the HDMI stuff that won't come through. I ended up just plugging the PS3 directly into the TV and turning on the TV speakers. I think this receiver must just have a faulty design or they used some bad parts in the HDMI path or something. I was pretty concerned about how much heat it was generating when I first got it in late 2009 and figured that it wouldn't have a long life as a result, but this is sad. I won't be getting anything from Onkyo again. My last receiver, also an Onkyo, had one of it's analog inputs fail. I like their features and sound quality, but this thing cost too much to only last 23 months.
There are some other posts with the same problem apparently:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1#post20568701http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1302144http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6#post20153676http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6#post20568836http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...4#post18988074
Maybe two years is the lifespan?
