    Hi
    I have an xbox 360 & panasonic dmp bd-80 blue ray player connected to my onkyo tx sr606 amp using a Samsung plasma TV.
    All via HDMI.
    When I choose the blue ray player the amp takes a long time to correctly identify the signal. The display will flash up with the found signal & then go off and check again this will happen several times a usually takes a good few minutes before the amp settles down with a signal.
    The xbox 360 is the same but no where near as long. Any other input other than hdmi is fine.
    Is this meant to happen ?

    The Onkyo is struggling to negotiate a HDMI Handshake with your panel, this can happen due to incompatabilities between manufacturers or even due to a poor HDMI lead.

    I don't think it's the leads as they are cambridge audio & did get good reviews.
    Nothing I can do except hope for a firmware update to resolve from Samsung or Panasonic ?

    How old is the Samsung Panel, if more than around a year it may need a FW update to the EDID, not sure if the 606 has an update available?
    What happens if you connect the BD player direct to the TV? have you tried turning items on in a different order as this sometimes works.

    Just try connecting the BD player direct to the Panel, this will help to clarify if it's the receiver causing the problem, if it is you can then contact (Genserve - Onkyo UK service agent). To be honest I think you will just get fobbed off with Samsung.

    Something else you can try; Is the BD player set to out put 1080P @ 24Hz? and does your panel accept both 1080P & 24Hz? if not lower the resolution or turn off 24Hz, you may well find it far faster to negotiate a signal lock. My panel whilst 1080P would not accept 24Hz until I managed to convince Samsung I needed a new Mainboard relating to another problem. After the new board was fitted (with Latest FW) all was well; [email protected] & negotiates in around a second or two at the most.

    Hi - done everything you suggested and still the problem.
    However if a don't use the AV receiver the panel syncs up fine.
    So I would conclude the amp is at fault.
    I have placed calls with onkyo & samsung.
    Samsung politely told me to jog on.
    Any other suggestions welcome ?

    Cheers

    It does sound as if the AV Amp. is causing the problem, however it's not always as clear cut as that with HDMI (But it should be) It depends upon how the manufacturers have decided to implement the Rules ;) I think the Amp. may need to return to Genserve for investigation/repair but even then it will not guarantee the items will talk to each other correctly.

    I know you have branded HDMI leads but to be honest this means very little; do you have anyone you can borrow a couple of leads from? sometimes it can be as simple as a lead change that can fix things. Although in technical terms they should all work in practice they can differ. Perhaps before you go down this route though it would be a good idea to have a chat with Genserve

    I have the same problem :mad:
    Panasonic BD60: FW 1.9
    Onkyo 606: FW 1.03 / 08630A
    Panasonic 42X10: FW 1005-10000
    the newest cables Profigold HDMI 1.3

    I do not know how to get a new Onkyo firmware.

    Official Onkyo answer:
    "We are sorry, but we can't find out from here what the exact reason is for
    this problem.
    Our engineers at Japan just check this matter at the moment.
    For now we have no new information in this issue.
    Could you please come back around middle of August."
