Isn't the HDMI port on the TV an input? You seem to be trying to use it as an output.

I have the same receiver and just received my HDMI cables yesterday.
I have the same problem as you.

Anyone able to help us with this?
I unhooked every component in my system after I started getting problems with the sound etc. just to do the process of elimination.
and figured I'll start with hooking up the Panasonic up convert DVD player.
Connection is easy HDMI out from DVD Player to the DVD In, on the receiver.
Now from the receiver to the TV which is a (few years old now)
the TV is a Samsung 30in widescreen CRT with DVI connector.
So I bought a HDMI adapter for my DVI cable a while back

(as the last time my cable box was changed out it went from DVI connector, which was why I bought the DVI - DVI cable in the first place to a HDMI connector so I saw there was an adapter available and just bought that).

Anyway I see the up converted signal on the TV but like you I have no sound coming through the receiver speakers.
WTF???? I thought HDMI was the way to go.

I have gone through every menu on my TV, DVD and Receiver, read the instructions manuals, there is one part on page 19 of the Sony Multi Channel AV receiver Operating instructions manual which reads this.
"We do not recommend using HDMI-DVI conversion cable to a DVI-D component, the sound and /or the image may not be output"
So what I have to buy a new TV now?

I bought my TV like 2 Years ago to find that the Receivers etc weren't Component compatible at the time, so I waited, then when I was getting ready to buy a Component ready Receiver I caught wind of HD DVD and Blu Ray, So HDMI was the way to go (So I thought) and so waited a little longer for the Receivers to have HDMI connectors.

Anyway I see the image just have no sound, However when I unplug the adapter converted DVI cable to the TV (Obviously I loose the image) but I now get the Sound from the DVD player via the Receivers speakers. which is what I want, but I want the Picture as well.
I changed the menu settings for the Sound for the Receiver from TV+AMP to just AMP, still didn't work.
I am running a DVI-D (Dual link cable) to the TV
but I am sure I am going to run into the same problem if I get a DVI single link cable, So I am not going to purchase an already outdated connector just to see if it works.

So what exactly is going on with this HDMI crap.
I get to a point of buying a HDMI Receiver and HDMI up convert DVD player where it should be easier now to enjoy HIGHER DEFINITION Just to get so frustrated.
(I know someone is going to flame me about the Up convert DVD but I knew that was a temporary purchase until the Blu ray's come down in price again).
Is there no industry standard, conformity anymore.
this stuff SHOULD be plug and play.
I guess I just wasted Money on 2 HDMI cables, a new Receiver and upconvert DVD just so I can still use Component video until I get a new TV with HDMI connectors, this is BS.
So now I have to wait a couple more years and by that time the Receiver and DVD player will already out of date, to find what then.
I am going to give up, I can't keep up with this technology financially or mentally.
If anyone knows a way around this issue please tell me.
I want to start enjoying this money I spent.

Why don't you just go HDMI/DVI from DVD player to TV? Then either optical or coaxial audio cable from DVD player to receiver?

I'm confused. What exactly are you trying to do? Are you not hearing sound coming from your TV's internal speakers?

Seems like Brian has hit the nail on the head with your problem. The HDMI on your TV is an input. You have ordinary (RCA jack) outputs from your TV, right? Send those to your receiver - - there should be TV audio inputs (on your receiver) right next to the component (RGB) video inputs for TV in (this would be relevant if you were simply using your TV as a tuner, and sending the signal out of your receiver to a projector, for example - - then you could use HDMI out...but for video only, of course... to the projector).

By the way, with all this gear, you don't have cable TV? Either by HDMI (assuming your upgraded cable box offers that), or by ordinary RCA jack ("red and white") audio outputs, you ought to get the audio signal for anything you watch from the cable box into your receiver.

Best wishes,

Rex

No, the speakers in the tv work fine, I can't get the tv to play audio through the receiver!,What gives?, The hdmi jack on the receiver does say"OUTPUT",
and the hdmi jacks on the tv do say "INPUT", But i thought you can use a function on the receiver to change that with the 'TV & AMP" function on the receiver, still does not work! HELP!
I'm thinking I'll have to run fiber optic cable to get sound out of my tv to the receiver, yea well!!

Thanks for the reply, I DID have a digital cable box, and i had it hooked up w/ a fiber optic cable, but my cable co. decided to get rid of some of the better channels ,so i removed the box, Plus i get more channels ,and MUCH better HD reception without it!!
and like i said before, the dvd works and sounds great through the sound system, but no regular tv!! Thanks

I don't know what the 'TV & AMP' function does, but I do know for a fact that the TV will not send audio OUT via HDMI. The only way to get the audio from the TV to the receiver is with an optical or coaxial audio cable from the TV to the receiver. I do it with mine and works great.

Not sure I fully understand your(s) setup, but is this an issue of the receiver only being able to "passthru" HDMI content and not capable of "digesting". From my understanding, some receivers are only capable of "passthru", meaning they pass along the HDMI content directly from receiver input to receiver output only without being able to process it. My understanding is pretty limited though. Anyone else care to correct/comment?

Not shure if this has been answerd yet but i think when going HDMI to DVI input you have to also run seperate RCA audio cables to tv input that should give you pic and sound

I have heard that if you use a hdmi/dvi adaputer the dvi don't carry the audio so you will have to run your audio with the dvi.
