They couldnt have called the inputs 'INPUT 1' etc?... I have to remember which one is under the VCR input, TAPE input, etc.

 

Good God...how old is that thing!?

Mad, human interaction is more important than electronics. Electronics can be purchased again. They'll always be around. They don't have feelings. People on the other hand... Come on man.

Hey, btw, so, if one is using a receiver, then how shall I do the mixing of the chat and what not? I'm thinking the Steelseries is the only way?

So, while I still don't understand even 5% of what the Receiver does, I was able to get my all sources to have sound in specific inputs (though horribly mislabeled). I can live with this, though I'm still quite upset at my PS3 not working.

edit: Seeing that PDF, I can see that there are monitor outs that will let me see an on screen menu, which would probably be a HUMONGOUS help.

WOW, I navigated these menus WITHOUT the TV! LMAO. This would've been MUCH easier!

Stupid question, but you're not plugging the ps3 into the output are you?

 

Have you got a Logitec remote? Chances are they'll have the commands for the receiver that you can program online

Works with s-video too if you have one

Oh no you didn't just call a semi-tech geek a noob! mad.gif



Seriously, no on both counts. biggrin.gif

ROFL, I told you this in the post where I said to reset the microprocessor. Thought you had seen it and been adjusting settings that way already, that's why I didn't bring it up again. I understand you may have been a little excited when you saw a possible fix and skipped the rest of the post, lol.

HMM! Okay... so.... there is some new settings I haven't seen, including one that is for HDMI, which is 'CONVERT' or 'THROUGH'. It was on convert. There is absoluitely no way to change this without having seen this screen, and I have a feeling setting it to 'through' = passthrough = it SHOULD work.

I will update....

Lol - nah, just the only thing I could think of that "could" cause the issue.

 

All this audio and no RCA leads? Hope the OSD gives some hints.

EDIT: NEVERMIND...sigh, it's either the audio, or the HDMI. I have to choose one. If I enable HDMI (thus allowing me to listen to the HDMI's audio), it freezes the PS3... but if I set it on THROUGH, I can see the image, but no sound. I give up.

Okay, so the only other issue I have is that Dolby Headphone MIGHT be room 1. I could swear it sounds less processed than the Mixamp, leading me to believe it's the smaller room DH.

Convert is needed for the receiver to process the audio, with this setting on through you are basically using the receiver as an HDMI switch. What brand of TV do you have again? I saw another thread of someone having an issue with the SR5002 and the PS3 with one TV, while it worked with their old TV.

Edit: Just saw your last post, guess I should have refreshed, lol. In regards to the DH sounding less processed, I believe if you would have kept the Mixamp, you would actually prefer the receiver during an A/B test. My roommate and I both preferred the receiver, and thought it was slightly more spacious. What do you mean by room? Do you mean version 1 vs version 2 of DH?

Panasonic 65ST30 Plasma. The PC does HDMI audio fine. It's just the PS3 that dies.

A really good thing about the receiver is that it has a LOT of volume. I was able to plug in the 3DS and play some Rhythm Thief. The volume was ear exploding with a lot to spare. Even my Compass 2 maxed out doesn't come close to the volume this thing puts out.

Dolby Headphone has 3 room modes. Most devices use Room 2.

While testing Nameless's Victor SU-DH1 (which has all three DH room modes), Room 1 was the smallest virtual space, with the least processing. Room 2 was the typical DH mode used in most devices like the Mixamp. Room 3 was an echoey mess, with a metric ton of reverb.

While I can't compare yet (I might win that Mixamp tomorrow), this DH reminds me of Room 1. Highest fidelity for DH, but not as airy as Room 2, which hurts positional cues. AGain, I'm just assuming. I did just fine with the receiver yesterday on MW2, and Avatar sounded AMAZING with it. It may as well be room 2. It's been over a week since I sold my Mixamp 5.8, and my memory is hazy.

Ahhh, I see now. Maybe that is why the Monoprice amp sounded so bad in comparison to the Mixamp. Room 3 pretty much describes how their amp sounded.

 

Back to the PS3 issue, have you tried this yet? Have you tried a different hdmi cable as well? My roommates GT30 wouldn't even work with the PS3 directly until we switched to a different cable when he first bought his TV.
