Sony DVD through ONKYO TX SR608 reciever to Sharp tv issue

I've got a new Sharp LC-60E69U TV and have hooked up my ONKYO TX SR608 reciever to it. I can get my satellite to display through the receiver with HDMI cable, but not my Sony DVP NS75 H DVD player. I've hooked it up as displayed in the receiver instructions, but all I get is a blank screen for the DVD. Does anybody have a fx?

My system has the Onkyo 606 and a Samsung tv. On the remote for the tv, try clicking source and scrolling until you find the component. HMDI will be for the tv. On mine av 1 is for the blueray

Is the DVD player also connected to the TV using an HDMI cable?

If not, then you may need a cable set of the same kind as the DVD player uses (probably component video with red/green/blue ends) going between the receiver and the TV. You would need to use the TV remote to select the input (Video 4? Video 5?) where the cable set matching that of the DVD player was connected, as well as select DVD player on your receiver.

Some receivers take inputs of all kinds and send them as HDMI to the TV (so you don't need the middle paragraph above), other receivers don't.

Well, the Onkyo has HDMI switching, so unless there's an issue with the receiver itself, that's not the problem. I see it has labels for all the different HDMI inputs, and I assume you connected the Sony to the appropriate one, so that variable is out of the mix.

Some video devices "default" to a particular output, whether or not your Sony does I cannot say. But for example, since your DVD can display composite ( RCA ), S-video, as well as HDMI, it's possible it defaults to say, composite video. If that's the case, then you'd get nothing hooking it up by S-video or HDMI. That's highly unlikely though......especially if the DVD player isn't new, in other words, you've been watching on another TV.

Conversely, some receivers have inputs "deactivated", and one must manually activate a particular input. My older Denon receivers and Krell pre-amp have that, and go so far as to be able to assign ( de/activate ) audio inputs as either digital ( optical or composite ) or analog composite.

Check both the receiver and the DVD players' manuals for any defaulted audio/video paths, and if they have user selected in/outputs for them. It make take some time going back and forth, as manufacturers ( manual writers to be specific ), seem to take great pleasure in having the end user going all over creation in them in order to get things in harmony....
