NUC7CJYH2 does not work with Onkyo receiver

NUC7CJYH2, Bios 44

Onkyo HT-S5805

LG 55UH6159

When I connect the NUC directly with the TV all seems fine.

When I connect the Onkyo in the middle there is no picture, even no boot screen.

When I use my notebook instead I get a nice pic.

I read about same issues with different NUCs and different Onkyos and it looks like there has nothing changed.

So - is this NUC worthless if one got an Onkyo?

That, or the Onkyo is worthless.

I did not mention it, but I was hoping for more solution-focused answers ....

I have two Onkyo receivers in the house, an older TX-NR616 and a brand new, 4K supporting, TX-NR575. I have NUCs connected to both receivers and have no problems with them at all. In fact, I have tested multiple NUC models with this new receiver without issue (give or take a few issues specific to the Samsung 6 Series TV that I am using). The most important suggestion I can make is to ensure that you use good quality, HDMI 2.0b-compliant cables. Most cables that come with components are absolute trash and you should avoid them if you can.

Hope this helps,

P.S. Gee, most people enjoy Al's attempts at humor (emphasis on 'attempts')...

Thanks for that advise.

I would consider that, if the setting would'nt work with the same cables in direct mod with the TV, UHD and 60Hz.

But it does ...

Ah, you are applying logic here. Stop that!

Yeah, you where right indeed.

I bought a certified HDMI-2.0b-cable for the connection between NUC and receiver and now it works.

Thanks!

Yes. Not logical - but proof is in the pudding!

Sometime, in the not too distant future, all cables will be created equally. That way, either everything will work, or nothing will work.
