My System Specs


I'm going to bump this back up again as I've run into the same issue with a completely different onkyo amp feeding into a standard 1080p widescreen tv. Same issue... washed out colour via hdmi and in this case I've got the ability to switch between HDMI and VGA inputs in order to compare the two.

Fortunately in this case I've got easy access to the manual so I'll be able to do research, but would appreciate any suggestions on where to look/start.

This is really bizarre, I can't imagine I'm the first one to notice this, or are most folks not bothering to connect their gaming htpcs through amps to get to their tvs?


Guess I'm looking in the wrong direction.... further testing is pointing towards the HDMI output from the vid card (different from the initial one as well, but also NVidia) as opposed to anything to do with the amp(s). Connecting HDMI direct from the vid card to the TV gives exactly the same poor results when compared to the VGA output.

Time to start digging over on the NVidia website.
