I have the Denon 1312 AV receiver, and the epson 8350 projector (1080)

I bought a 50' hdmi cable that supports 1.4a/3d/etc... >LINK<<br />
When I hook the 50' cable directly from my computer to the pj, I can do 1080@60Hz perfect. If I hook the 50' cable to the receiver, and then use a short 3' cable to link to the pj, I can only get up to 720@60 or 1080@24.

I talked to Denon support and they said the receiver was draining just enough of the signal to cause the problems. Sure enough, when I moved my computer into the theatre room, using a 6' cable to the receiver, I was able to do 1080@60.

He said my options were to use a balun to extend the signal, but I cannot find 1080/60 baluns for a reasonable price. Or, he said I could try finding better cables that might be able to carry a stronger signal to the receiver.

Any questions or ideas that I can try?

The shop in town has a yamaha receiver for 50$ more; something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-RX-V467.../dp/B003CP0K8W

DO you think a different receiver may help solve this problem?

Or is there a cheap hdmi signal booster trick or product that I can try?

I have solved the problem and without paying any extra money!

I swapped out my receiver, from a denon 1312 to a yamaha rx-v467. I got it for the same price, and now I can run 50ft to the receiver, then 35ft to the PJ and at full 1080@60Hz. Hope this helps!

Good you go things sorted - though it's worth noting that no 50' 'passive' HDMI cable is High Speed and no cable (any variety) is 1.4'.

It's the mix of Source, Repeater, Sink (Display) devices plus the installed cable that will determine if a particular combination of kit will work or not.
