It's a new girl with a prob! Maybe you guys will have some feedback or information that can help with this particular clusterf*ck I have going on here!
I have the following setup:
Sony 61" 3LCD HD Wega Engine (1xHDMI)
Toshiba HD-A1 via HDMI
Scientific Atlanta HD-DVR via HDMI
Sony PS3 via HDMI
Monoprice HDX-501 (5xHDMI)
I just recently got the PS3 and decided to buy the Monoprice unit for more needed HDMI inputs. I read reviews and everyone loved it, but I guess everyone didn't own the Toshiba HD-A1 and used the two in conjunction. When I connect the HD-A1 directly to my TV's HDMI, they two work fine. But, when I use the switcher I get the splash screen and the error message(just like all the typical posts regarding this problem). So, it's obvious that the two aren't making a handshake and something isn't right. I read in the forums and it said that the FW update would fix this problem, well I have the current version (downloaded tonight via ethernet) and I am still having this problem. It's odd because I can access the onscreen HDDVD setup with the HDMI connection but when I attempt to play a movie I then receive the error message.
I have unplugged everything from all power sources and in this order, plugged my TV back up, then the switcher, then the HDDVD player, and still no luck! My PS3, my HDDVR cablebox, and my Sony HD camcorder all work perfectly via the Monoprice switcher. Any advice or information would be much appreciated. I just hate to not use the HDMI out on the HD-A1 but am looking at being forced to use component cables for the HD out (ick
) to gain the additional ports on the switcher from the HDMI out on my TV. Thanks in advance!
