Will the audio and video sync up correctly with the above mentioned setup and my DEVICES?

Thanks for your help in advance!
Yes they should and the Onkyo receivers have a sync control to help eliminate any lip sync issues you may have.

well just made the plunge with Crutchfield. They honored a $100 credit towards the 705 - with free shipping = $629.99

...now time to read up on installing it!

Just go to the Onkyo website and download the owners manual and read 'til your hearts content. http://www.onkyousa.com/download/own...m?cat=Receiver

Nope, no more yellow, red, and white. HDMI is the only connection you would need from the A35.
Should be the same for your cable box, my cable box audio and video all come thru HDMI. The only trick is that you "might" have to go into the audio options on the cable box to set this up the first time.

But if you also use the component output from the receiver, it is passed as the native signal, 1080i in, 1080i out. Same goes for 480i/480p if you are using those.

FYI, HDMI video output is not changed, it passes whatever it sees.

If you are considering this unit (or any other for that matter), I would suggest using HDMI and component to the TV if you have each of these going to the receiver. I had to tweak the picture settings on each TV input, the settings are slightly different for HDMI vs component.
OK I just got the 605 (well the 908 that brings the 605 receiver) and this is how I am going to have my setup as HDMI out to my TV (which as 3 HDMI slots) and the inputs are going to be A2 and PS3 then I am going to have the HD PVR from Brighthouse connected to it on component cable according to this if I do that it will display 720p instead of 1080i or is that only if I have a HDMI going from my cable box to the receiver and component going from the receiver to the TV .

I looked at the back of my PVR and was wondering can I connect the it to HDMI directly to my TV and have the optical audio out put connected to the receiver to get the audio or what would be the best way to connect it? Sorry I am really new to this and this is confusing. also sorry for going off topic.

P.S. has anyone been able to get to onkyo website I have not been able to for the past 2 days

Ok I think i found the answer in a another thread posted lower. If I am right its:

HDMI IN (Cable box)+HDMI Out (TV) = 1080i
Component in (Cable box)+HDMI Out(TV)=720p
Component in (Cable box)+ Component Out(TV) =1080i

right?

That's how it is with the 705, I would assume it is the same with the 605.

I had my cable box hooked up like this before getting the 705. My old receiver only had up to svid, so all component/HDMI connections went directly to the TV, and optical/dig coax went to the old receiver.

You could just hook up a component cable from the receiver to the TV in addition to the HDMI cable, I have mine set up this way.

I have the 705 & love it but I never get to see the display show DD+ or Dolby TrueHD when playing a disc on either my A20 HD-DVD player or my SonyBDP-300. What am I doing wrong? I go to the disc menu and set the proper audio codecs but still dont see them anywhere in the 705's display.

See pages 68 thru 72 of your owners manual for an explanation of those unique audio formats, how to use them and settings. Of course you would need a HD-DVD or Blu ray disc that has those codecs and you would have to go into the menu of the disc and turn them on.

Thanks for replying............I did check the manuals and it seems that if the player is doing the decoding those codecs wont show up on the Onkyo's display.......but it seems like there's no way to bypass the player's decoding... I'm fairly new at this and I'm just looking for some answers and you seem to know what you're talking about

I would attempt to (depending on just what player it is) change the player audio settings like bitstream, RAW and PCM and see if that get's the lights on for you. Those settings do affect the internal decoder.

I bought the Sony 350..set the audio to direct and the Onkyo displays the codecs for True & DTS-MA, DTS-HD as well. The A20 internally decodes them and therefore doesnt display it on the Onkyo........just MULTICH.

I know there are "secret codes" for the 705. Do you know what the code is to keep the display on the audio codec screen constant and not have it default to the "Input" screen, or the input screen + the audio codec??
