Well I figured you had, but sometimes I miss the obvious, errr maybe most of the time. I can't find anything that states the display setting is tied to a particular input and I figured the setting would apply across the board. Sorry I couldn't help, and please let us know what the solution is.

I know this has to be an easy fix I just can't figure it out.

setup menu...
bd source...
video...
set "video convert" to "on"...

that oughta do it...
post #693 of 1955
Ok so I just tested it and apparently I misdiagnosed the problem. It does work on bd when nothing is playing, but we have an xbox 360 hooked up to that input and when the xbox is on then it doesn't display it. So now I'm even more clueless as to why its not working.

On the 7005 it's about 90W so more likely about 75W on the 5006.

Yes, although it must also be selected for the main zone as well.

I'm having trouble with compatibility issues with my graphics card(Radeon HD 2400 XT) in my HTPC. I think I"m going to buy a new one. Can anyone confirm a graphics card that is compatible with the SR6006, both audio and video via hdmi.

Please let me know what model graphics card you have?

My 5006 will not turn on and the stand by light is blinking red what is wrong

Another option besides swapping out graphics cards is to add either an HDMI splitter or switch between the HTPC and the AVR.

As noted in the troubleshooting section in your Owner's manual (p. 136), a flashing 2 sec light indicates a ventilation issue, while a flashing 1/2 sec light indicates either a speaker wire issue (touching another post and the most common culprit), running 4Ω speakers too loud, or amp failure.
post #701 of 1955
I tried all that I live in a condo I haven't had it louder that -45. I'm hoping since I'm within 30 days a4l will exchange it
post #702 of 1955

Make sure to really visually check behind the AVR very closely ... pull it out of the stand if you have to ... to ensure not even a single wire from one post is touching another post. If still no joy, then disconnect all speaker wire connections and see if the AVR shuts down. If yes, return it. If no, then rewire one speaker at a time to check for a short in a speaker.
post #703 of 1955
I did all of that again. Mark @ a4l emailed me and said to contact marantz in the morning and they will exchange it for no charge! So I guess the first begins @ 9

Does this fix the problem? why?

Is the power consumption for the SR6006 650 watts?

In some instances, yes, as the issue is the EDID being read incorrectly by the video card in the HTPC which the switch/splitter is able to resolve.

Actual power consumption is more likely to be closer to 85W on average.

85W per channel seems pretty good compared to some other brands so called 100W receivers.

that's not what he said...
post #710 of 1955
85W total?
post #711 of 1955
^^^

nope again...

he said "consumption"... which should be a reminder to people that they don't use nearly as much power as they think they do...

it may very well put out 85wpc, i have no idea, but that sounds like a reasonable number.... also keep in mind, all channel driven tests have no analogy in "real world usage... there aren't any soundtracks that contain only pure sine waves going to all the channels at the same time....

Guess you can tell that I am a newb at all this.

all of us were once... if you read jd's posts regularly though, before you know it, you'll be an expert...
post #714 of 1955
I talked to marantz first thing this morning and emailed all the paper work they asked for so I hope I'm get my receiver back soon
post #715 of 1955
I've chased down the issue I described on page 23, thought I'd share what I've learned in case others run into the same thing... The video noise turned out to be some type of interaction between the internal wifi feature of the ps3 and the 6006 (I have till now been connected wirelessly from the ps3 to the Internet). Connecting the ps3 via Ethernet to my router eliminates the video noise all together as does bypassing the receiver altogether, ps3-hdmi-projector (which of course means no GUI or hdmi switching so not a desirable fix). So now my ps3 is online via Ethernet to my router, problem solved... But I'm still curious as to why this might happen. Is this something anyone has seen before? If the ps3 had component outputs (which it does not) would I still see the noise when using wifi and routed through the receiver via component? Or is this only an hdmi thing? Might an oppo w/ it's external wireless unit avoid this issue?

Can anyone tell me how to set the receiver to HDMI passthrough? I've looked in the manual but can't find how to do it?

Make sure you have Network Standby on.

Set to ON and to the HDMI jack your source is plugged in to (5006 - p. 97, 6006 - p. 110).
post #719 of 1955
JD, how do I get to pp 97 for the sr5006? Also one more ? When I'm trying to calibrate my speakers the little winder just says "Look at your tv screen and nothing else, I need help with this. And I love this thing!

Thanks much
Phil

You should have gotten a CD with the 5006 which holds a .pdf version of the Owner's manual. Open the file on the CD and go to p. 97. Otherwise, you can download the .pdf file from the Marantz website. Do you have the AVR connected via HDMI to a TV/display?
