I have a problem with my Pioneer 930HD and Denon 5910 setup that I can't quite explain. The Denon 5910's connected to the Pioneer with a 20' HDMI cable, and it's gradually harder to pick up the handshake when I switch between Input 1 (which has a Tivo Series 3 connected to it through an HDMI cable) and Input 3 (where the 5910's connected). At first the automatic 1080i upscaling on the Denon wasn't producing a picture unless I shut off the player & TV for a few minutes, turned on both again, switched between Inputs 1 and 3, and then let the Pioneer get "used" to a 480p/576i picture for a few minutes on Input 3 before the upscaling picture was visible.
Now it seems that the Pioneer won't recognize the 5910's HDMI connection at all. I've went and reconnected cables, turned on/off both machines for a few minutes before starting over, to no avail. I'm going to try a new HDMI cable, but I vaguely remember an old 930HD thread talking about this happening. Are there specific inputs on the Tivo's "Live TV" that I should use to avoid confusing the 930? What's going on? Is it indeed an HDMI problem?
The Better Cables HDMI connecting the Denon to the Pioneer's barely a year old, by the way.
