Try setting the PS3 "Deep Color Output" to OFF.

Have you recently used the PS3 on a non-HD TV (1080P) and non-surround audio setup? If so, hold the power button down on the PS3 to redo the video and audio settings.

The video out problem is known to Onkyo and they keep promising a fix for it, but none has come yet. I owned this receiver for three weeks before I returned it because of the bugs that they seem unable to correct. You will also find that unless you turn on Network Standby, you are unable to use the remote to turn the receiver on - or at least that was my (and several others on the Onkyo board's) experience!

To correct the HDMI (video out) problem, first try unplugging the receiver for a few minutes and plugging it back in. If this fails, then perform a Clear by switching the receiver on, hold the CBL/SAT button and press the power button. The word Clear should appear on the front screen if successful.

If you are keeping it, make sure you are networked and watch for updates. There's nothing that will fix it yet although a Firmware update that will make the box compatible with its new Bluetooth adapter was released last week.

This is the same way it works on Denon/Marantz AVRs as well and actually makes sense, otherwise how else is the AVR going to receive WiFi commands if it's not actively connected to the WiFi router/modem?

This is true IF you want to use an app on your Apple/Android device or access it over the network. However, it does increase standby power consumption. It should be possible to switch the receiver on using the remote whether or not Network Standby in enabled. Switching it on from the front initializes the HDMI each time too!

Sorry ... my bad ... misread your post, although you did say "remote" and not smart phone. Understood. That would be an issue, especially with the Onkyos if they haven't been able to reduce the Standby wattage from last year's models 60W, as for Denon/Marantz AVRs it's only 3W or less.
