Mouse Pointer delay
I think I know the answer but I will bounce this off you gurus anyway.
I currently have my BDP-103D connected via dual HDMI. My system includes an HTPC, Onkyo TX-NR 808, Samsung UN55D8000 and a DirecTV Geni.
For a few months, I have been searching PC forums for a solution to the delay of my mouse pointer in the HTPC. Today, after checking the 500th PC forum, it hit me in the forehead like Matt Kemp's 34" bat.
I had to set sound delays in the BDP of 170 and 150 on the Onkyo for the DirecTV input to get lip sync, since switching to the dual HDMI setup. Previously, the DirecTV was direct to the BDP and using the HTPC to the receiver without the oppo.
I guess my only solution is to switch back to single HDMI and tolerate the annoying sound dropout when resuming play on the DirecTV from pause or rewind. Also, I would not have the oppo in use for Amazon Prime or PC games.
Does anyone have another solution? Thanks.
Additional thought: I could connect the HTPC to a different HDMI input on the Samsung. Then, what about sound? I believe the ARC from the TV would only provide 2-channel. Maybe get the sound from the HDMI out on my motherboard to the receiver while using the HDMI out on my graphics card to the TV?
