Sync issues?


Standard Member
Hi all!

It seems that my Onkyo 606 is having issues syncing with my Xbox360 and my Mac Mini: when I connect them via HDMI to the receiver, about 2 minutes after I turn them on the receiver starts to go crazy: it starts switching from mode to mode (PCM, Dolby Digital et cetera), and the TV starts going crazy along with it, showing pretty much all messages it can possibly show - no signal, different modes et cetera. It goes on like that for about 10 minutes, then starts working fine, until I turn it off for awhile.

The weird part is that it works fine for some time when I turn everything on the first time, for a couple of minutes, and only then starts acting up.

If I plug either the Xbox or Mac directly into my TV (Sony Bravia 46" XBR8) - everything works fine.

I've also triedswapping cables around, to no avail.

Anybody knows why us this happening and if there is a way to fix this?
