hdtv to A/V to TW cable hookup

10-29-2004, 09:26 AM
Hello, Great forum with great knowledge & I've read alot of them!

Here's my problem, I want to run everything through my A/V receiver, but all the manuals want me to use their equipment as 'the brain'. I need specific cable hookup info. Monster didn't help.

I have the following:

TV = Panasonice TH-42PX25u/p
Receiver = Onkyo TX-SR602
DVD = Onkyo (no problem here)
STB = Scientific Atlanta Explorer 3100HD (cable card in 1 month!)
Speakers = individual Polk's setup in 5.1 (no problem here)

I can get the DVD to run through the HDTV.
I can get the FM stereo to run fine.

I CAN"T get the TV channels on the HDTV through the receiver.
I DO however, get one screen. It's channel 999 for 'pay per view'. It won't let me actually order or view the shows, but the menu is there & I can page through it.

I've got every damn cable imaginable here.

thanks for any & all help.

Thanks for the quick reply Maximus. I had read your initial post, but never made it to diagram 4!

I'll try it tomorrow. Notice the icon is less angry already...
Thanks again.
