Onkyo TX-SR508 and Windows 7 media center

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When running HDMI from my windows 7 media center (1gb ATI 5450 card) to my SR508, the video appears normal until I launch media center. The screen blanks for a brief moment, then media center loads. About 10-15 seconds later, media center crashes with an error message stating that color depth must be 32 bit. I've checked before and after the crash, and the color depth is 32bit. If I bypass the receiver and plug directly into my TV, it works flawlessly.

Possible EDID issue? In other words, the receiver does not send the correct EDID information to the PC.

Not sure how to work around that situation either. You might want to try HTPC forums.

It sounds like it is a problem with MCE's resolution settings. As you likely know, MCE can (at times) generate a different resolution and color depth than your normal windows settings. Plug directly into the TV. Run the video/TV setup function under "settings". Confirm that you are sending the proper resolution and color depth, etc. After finishing the set-up wizard, try incorporating the receiver.
