I have a Onkyo TX -SR607, I have attached hardware by HDMI the following:

out - TV

HDMI 1 - TV (cable)

HDMI 2 - VCR/DVD

HDMI 3 - blank

Hdmi 4 - Apple TV

 

The menu panel on the tv shows I am receiving

TV

HDMI 2 - TV

HDMI 1 - Digital Media Adaptor

HDMI 3 - DVD

HDMI 4 - __

 

Tested the DVD player on a different TV and it worked find.

 

But when it's part of the home theater it the receiver 'does not receive a signal'.

 

I have tried a different HDMI cable but no luck.

 

I am a loss as to where to go from here.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Joe

Yep...

Put everything in standby(yes, everything). Unplug everything from the wall(except "cable").

Unplug the HDMI.

Wait 15-30 minutes.

Hook the HDMI back up.
Plug it all back into the wall.
Turn on the 607 first, turn on the "devices" (all off them).
Turn on TV.

That procedure is everytime you change something out.

Sam:

 

Thanks for responding. I did what you said. I still get a message on the amplifier saying "DVD  No Signal".

 

I repeated the process with a second HDMI cable with the same results.

 

I am wondering if there is a setting on the vcr\dvd player or the amp that I need to change.

 

Any additional ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Joe

Joe, have you tried:

 

1.) connecting one of the recognized devices to HDMI 4 to see if it works, and

 

2.) connecting the DVD to one of the HDMI's that you know works?

 

This would at least tell you whether there is a problem with HDMI 4 on the receiver.

I did and got the dvd player to play; but it's plugged into HDMI 2 and says (on the TV) that it's in HDMI 3. It also says the cable box (which is in HDMI 1) is in HDMI 3. Both play. And I just realized that my apple TV - which stayed in the same HDMI slot - now doesn't exist. I don't get any messages. It just doesn't receive.

Does it matter which HDMI slot on the receiver a device is plugged in? Does it matter that the receiver is reading the HDMI slot wrong (device to HDMI slot)?

It seems I have got this thing mucked up pretty bad.

Thanks all for the replies and help. I'm out of town for a couple days. I will reconnect with this forum when I get back.
