Default Onkyo 606 not showing 1080p input

Hi all,

I have an Onkyo 606 and a Samsung Blu-Ray BD-P1500 connected via HDMI. When the Samsung is configured to output at 1080i, the Onkyo is perfectly happy. But as soon as I change the setting to output at 1080p, the Onkyo stops showing picture (I still get sound through the speakers).

I've plugged the Blu-ray directly into my TV HDMI and it works fine at 1080p, indicating it's something to do with the Onkyo. I've tried setting the HDMI cable to pass "through" and also to "auto" but this had no effect.

Can anybody help? The Onkyo support pages appear to be a little.... thin...

Just to close this thread... thanks in part to some helpful suggestions on AV Forum and some helpful folk at Richer Sounds, I have fixed this issue.

The forum won't allow me to post the link to the thread, so my last post is pasted here for anyone having a similar problem:

Success! And here's how....


I took the Onkyo and the Blu-Ray back to Richer sounds, along with the cables I'd been using.

Plugged into a Sharp 32", everything worked fine. Bafffled, I asked the Richer sounds rep if I could take a couple of cables to try at home. Bugger me if the more expensive cable didn't work!

So the lesson to me and to all lesser mortals out there is... sniff ye not at the ridiculous premium charged for HDMI cables... apparently it does make a difference!

Thanks to all who made suggestions on this thread... it all helped!

Actually it makes no difference at all. You probably just had a or some bad cables (could have a store sales ploy). In the future go to www.monoprice.com for cables. High quality, low, low price.
