    Hi, I've a TX-SR876 with a Cable TV box connected to HDMI1 and PS3 to HDMI2. I've an analog TV connected via S-Video and I've set Monitor Out to analog.
    The Onkyo menus are ok in the TV through the S-Video, but when I choose CAB/SAT or GAME/TV I got sound from the Onkyo but the image in the TV is a blue screen. It looks like the Onkyo doesn't pass the image from HDMI1/HDMI2 to the analog S-Video Monitor Out.

    Thanks.

    Thats correct, the 876 (in fact all Av receivers) will not downconvert HDMI inputs to analog (composite, svideo and component) output. As this involves stripping the HDCP out.

    It will do it the other way upconvert analog to HDMI output.

    Thanks dwhite, I've connected with the RCA adapter for the PS3 to the Onkyo, and connected the Cable TV box with scart to the TV and I'll by a coax digital audio cable to connect to the Onkyo.
    At least until I'll by an HDTV :).
