Hi

 

I have just put a new AV Receiver (Denon AVR-X2000) into the mix with my projector set up.  I have never had a problem running a Nordost 10m HDMI cable from the PS3 or set top box to my projector but adding the receiver in-between is causing me no end of problems.  I am using Kordz HDMI interconnects from my sources to the receiver.  I get flashing and sparkling on the screen and have tried many fault finding exercises to rid the problem.  Even with the PS3 and set top box off there is a sparkle and flashing on the screen.  I am thinking of using a an equalizer (active or passive I am unsure) or would someone else be able to point me in the right direction?  

 

Thanks, 

Adam.

Have you tried testing with shorter cables? My guess is the cable length is causing you issues. Different pieces of gear tend to have different tolerances for cable length/signal levels.

Some folks have had better luck with Redmere cables.

Do you have 4K up scaling or deep color set to On in the AVR.

Is the AVR set Output Video only via HDMI.

Thanks for getting back to me.  I have tried all the different options except 4K and have not found a deep color option.  I have tried HDMI only and also turned all video options off but still get the sparkle and flashing.  

 

I am waiting for delivery of a 7.5m HDMI Redmere cable (sorry not Monoprice) but it was the Monoprice website that got me looking more into the Redmere technology so thank you.  I would have purchased a Monoprice but there is no Australian distributor and was costly for delivery from the USA.  I am hoping the shorter Redmere cable will do the trick.  

 

Once again thanks for the help.  

 

Cheers, 

Adam.

Success! Just arrived and installed a 25' Sewell Premium Thin High Speed HDMI Cable with Redmere Technology and working beautifully. No interference what so ever with any of my components.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Cheers,
Adam.
