For isolation, I tested the motorola directly to the TV, and the xbox directly to the TV, both work. Additionally, the Sirius radio audio still functions on the SR705.
I'm in Wyoming so I have to ship to Denver for service. I have to send a $50.00 diagnostic fee with it.
Basically, I'm trying to evaluate how much it 'could' cost. Is there an HMDI processor that could have gone bad? Would I be better off replacing the unit? Anyone have any experience paying for this type of repair?
I too have had my 705 for about two years and last night, while watching a Blu-ray, the video/audio just quit!! I have my Blu-ray player, my Dish Network 722 HD DVR, and my HD DVD player all running to the Onkyo HDMI inputs and then my TV to the Onkyo's HDMI OUT (just like your setup). I tried different cables, but to no avail. Then I hooked up my Blu-ray player directly to the TV (on the same input that the HDMI OUT had been hooked up to) and it played fine. So, I'm sure it's the same problem you're facing. I could just hook up all my components to my Pioneer KURO and use Optical cables for audio, but who wants to lose the quality of hi rez audio after investing, in my case, $700 in a receiver for that very purpose.
FWIW, I did call an Onkyo dealer in this area and he said to unplug the receiver for at least an hour and that maybe
it would "come back to life." That was a half hour ago....I'll chime back in if it actually works.
Edit: It did NOT work, so I just ordered a few coaxial cables to use for audio until I can decide if I should replace my Onkyo. I, for one, will NOT be getting another Onkyo. I have a Pioneer Elite TV and Blu-ray player, so would a Pioneer receiver be a good option? I'm thinking there wouldn't be any handshake issues if I did go that route.
