I'm more curious what the cause of this problem is, and if there's any reasonable solution that doesn't involve me spending bunches of money.
Thanks for your reply.
I am having the EXACT
My system consists of a Yamaha RX-V465, PS3 (hdmi), HD DVR (hdmi) and xbox 360 (component). I made no changes to anything except replacing the old Viewsonic 720p LCD with a Panny G25.
Everything used to work perfectly with my old Viewsonic 720p LCD that the G25 replaced, but now I get video drop out on the PS3 when attempting to play blurays. I can hear the sound, but the screen is not getting a video signal (can only see the TV's HDMI 1 info pane window in the top left). Games work fine, but all my games are native 720P resolution, so I think I can safely say the issue is the hdmi cables not delivering enough bandwidth (or signal.... or whatever its called) to the receiver and then to the TV. Too much distance.
I also tried bypassing the receiver and plugging the PS3 straight into the TV's hdm1 port and it worked perfect. I tried it with multiple hdmi cables and each one worked perfect. I can usually 'force' TV to accept the handshake by flipping to HDMI 2 and then reverting back to HDMI 1, but sometimes the image is all garbled and jittery. But most of the time this works though and the picture is unbelievable (watched Avatar last night with my jaw on the floor).
I believe this to be a hdmi cable length or quality issue. I only have problems when trying to view true 1080p from bluray and all the other lower resolution items work perfect every time. I'm going to buy better quality and shorter cables to test with and will report back.
Speaking of which.... which version of hdmi cable should I be after? 1.3, 1.3a, 1.3b, etc... I have a 2nd gen 40gb PS3 (the fatty). And whom has the best deals? I've bought from monoprice in the past, but that was years ago and not sure they're the best deal around.
**Edit: I turned off the HDMI pass through control on the receiver and tested 3x.... worked perfect every time.
Try this and report back if you would please.
** Edit 2: I tried the game Uncharted (720p) and the handshake dropped. When I forced it to recover it was very static like and unviewable. AAAGGGGGHHHHHHH!
Now I'm back to my HDMI not delivering enough signal conspiracy theory. Need to test with new (and decent quality) cables.
