I have no idea why they bought that monitor, they had to ship it from japan which took over 2 months, there are so many 65 inch LCD tv's now that have a multitude of inputs on them, i think they saw us coming and ripped us off.

It was the case of someone else bought it and now we have to get it all working together, i dont know why they need the touch screen part. If it was up to me i would send it back and just buy a TV, or buy a projector and a screen you can control up and down so it is out of the way when not needed.

I think i am gonna pass on the info that it isn't possible to set this up to work the way they want, and that they need to go back to the people they bought the equipment from as it clearly isn't fit for what we bought it for.

One thing to check is to make doubly sure you select the correct input on the amp and then turn on the XBox. I've got a Mac Mini connected to an Onkyo TX-SR606 for HTPC duties and unless the Onkyo is set to the correct input before the Mac is turned on, I get no display on the TV. I think it is due to a HDMI handshaking issue.
FWIW, I run both an HTPC and DVD/HDD recorder via my amp to the TV an it's connected as follows:
DVD/HDD recorder - Video: Component, Audio: Digital Co-ax
Mac Mini - Video: DVI to HDMI cable, Audio: Digital Optical
I then run an HDMI cable from the amp to the TV with a DVI to HDMI adapter on the TV end (no HDMI connector). Works a treat!
Wierdly, once I have done above (amp set to source before powering up HTPC), I can switch back and forth between the inputs for the HTPC and DVD/HDD recorder with no issues, so I definately think it's some form of handshaking issue,
As an added bonus, any component or composite signal going into the Onkyo gets upscaled to 1080i if you are using the HDMI output to the TV. I only see 720p, as that';s the max my TV will support, but it still looks pretty stunning.
