    Receiver issue

    I have a directv HD dvr going through an onkyo receiver to my tv both using HDMI. I have this set up for years, but recently when I first turn on the tv and receiver there is a delay before the sound and picture start to work. After a couple minutes the sound will kick in and then several minutes later the picture will show. I know it's the receiver because if I connect the dish directly to the tv it doesn't happen. I'm guessing it's a HDMI hand shake issue, but it seems really strange. Anybody ever heard of this happening or know what might be going on?

    Re: Receiver issue

    How do you turn on these devices? Maybe make sure to start the Directv box first and then wait a couple of seconds to start the A/V receiver.

    Re: Receiver issue

    If the HDMI cords are more than a few years old, you may want to look into that.

    Also, if it's an Onkyo 606 there are known issues with them developing handshake issues

    I don't usually turn off the dish receiver. The receiver is a TXSR674B, just over 3 years old. The tv is a 50' samsung DLP. I also noticed last night that 1080p from my PS3 through the receiver no longer works. If I connect it directly to the TV it's fine, but if I run it through the receiver I just get a blank screen. If I change it to 1080i or 720p it will work. I think it's time for a new receiver.

    I'm sure it could be fixed for a price but probably not worth it. Be like me and put the onkyo out in the garage.

    Sorry, I didn't even think about it showing on the main page and confusing people.

    I'm sure, it worked for a long time, this all just started happening.
