3.0 out of 5 stars Good System but there's some issue with PS3 "Deep Color", August 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Onkyo HT-S5400 7.1-Channel Home Theater System (Electronics)
I recieved the system a week ago and hook it up, the sounds is great especially when decoded to DTS-HD, speakers are stylish and i like the Audessy auto calibration that comes with the system, the only problem is when connected to a Projector (Epson 8350) and PS3 that has a "Deep Color" turned ON, the display goes black with no audio for 1-2 seconds and sometime the display flickers,all i thought it was the HDMI cable so i tried other highspeed HDMI that i have and i didn't found any issue on it, samething i did on the connecttions between my PJ and PS3. SO the problem only occurs when connected to the reciever. The thing i did to fix it is to turn OFF the Deep COlor from PS3 Video Settings and the flickering goes away (But yeah, you dont have deep color features anymore, even though its clearly stated on the manual that deep color is supported grrr....). I also recommend replacing the speaker wires that came with it, get wires like 16-14AWG, ofcourse that depends on how long you gonna run the wires. Mine is 35-40feet so i bought the 14 AWG wires.

Regarding the comment about the Epson 8350 - were you able to solve this issue?
I have the same projector and want to buy a receiver/system, did you buy anything else?

When watching bluray on a PS3 the flickering stops, but when using it for playing games, netflix, vudu, dvd then thats when the flickering starts. So im pretty sure that its the onkyo, i also did some research and found out thats there is a lot of complain about this issue not only on s5400 but also on other onkyo systems, i really wish onkyo will release a firmware update to solve this problem. But overall the system is great when it comes to sound quality, i also love the audessy auto-calibration and usb for iphone that came with it. So basically right now, mi only turning on deep color when watching blurays and turning it off when playing games or watching netflix, image quality are still great with or without deep color with 8350.

I don't know of any 10-bit panels anyway, deep color is useless

I have noticed the same thing since I've gotten it. It'll flicker and stop for 1 second, audio will cut out, and then come back..It's rather annoying..... so it's the graphics that onkyo can't handle??

yeah, its something to do with the Deep Color compatibility (i dont know the detailed explanation why it does that), onkyo hasn't still releasing any firmware update till now to fix the issue, best thing to do is just to turn off Deep color from the output source such as PS3, Bluray player, TV etc. , it doesnt make much difference anyway either its turn off or not.

If you drop your ps3 to 720p output, it should stop the flickering.
