Hi,

Just wondered if anyone else has come a cross any hand shake/connection problems with these items?

I just bought an Onkyo 609 with Kef home theatre 2000 series speaker set up, it sound fantastic but when connected to the TV, I receive the Onkyo start screen followed by the TV's blue screen and nothing else! I have tried everything I know on both the TV and the amp including switching off the Regza link on the TV, and doing a good basic set up on the amp. Can anyone give any suggestions please??
Many thanks, John

Hi,

On another thread someone had a similar issue, it turned out the output was set to 4k. Could be worth checking or do a factory reset to default.

Thanks Pany for the response.
I have checked this and unfortunately it's not the case, been onto RS who got in touch with Onkyo. I then got onto Toshiba (£1.53p/m!) and still no resolution. My next step is a new TV! I have mostly Panasonic stuff so I'm now looking at the 42GT30 TV, I though I might as well beat this problem to death with pound notes unless anyone can suggest another fix?
Thanks again for the swift post sir!

I have a Toshiba XV5xx series TV with the same issue. I found that putting a HDMI 1.2 switch between the Amp and TV got the video working, but at the cost of CEC (which isnt supported in the HDMI 1.2 spec).

Thanks mediamaff,

I wish I had know that solution a couple of weeks ago, I've since beaten the proem to death with pound notes! New Panasonic GT30 works great out if the box. Thanks for the info though, best regards.
