I have XBOX, PS4, Optimum cable box and Oppo 203 bluray. Originally had HDMI output 1 to my Sony 55 inch with a 9 foot Audioquest cable. HDMI output 2 to my Epson with a 30 foot Celerity cable. This did NOT work. I kept losing picture and sound while watching movies off of the Oppo. I decided to run the Celerity directly out of Oppo right to the PJ. Works great. I then ran a BJC series 1 (fire hose) from my HDMI output 2 to the 1.4 input on the Epson for all my other viewing. Seemed to work good.
I ran it about 15 mins as I don't watch much TV, just blurays and the Celerity out of the Oppo into the Epson is working great. Watched about 100 hours so far on the Epson without a problem.
A few weeks ago, decided to watch Game of Thrones. After 20 mins, picture and sound started dropping out. I don't get it. It is NOT 4K, just a cable box. Being a wits end yet again. I ordered the Ruipro 10 meter cable. Installed it today, picture and sound dropping out, same as the BJC series 1. I don't get it. This is my 3rd upgrade in less than 5 years. This is my 3rd Marantz prepro. Not sure why I stay with Marantz. This is killing me again. I spent along time before I iwas able to get to watch movies off my Oppo 203. It seems nothing more than 10 feet will pass out of my Marantz.
Why would it not pass a signal out of my cable box???
The Marantz and Epson are less than a year old. HELP.
Thanks. I don't know what else to try at this point.
Since I was not at your house watching you, I think I would do a couple of things to troubleshoot your problem.
1. You need to verify which components work with your hdmi cable connected directly to either your TV or your projector. Test 4K and 1080P.
2. Once you finish step 1, you now have a baseline for comparison.
3. Repeat step 1, but this time route the signal through your receiver.
4. If you finish step 3, you'll know what works through your receiver.
5. If a component does not work, just chalk it up to an HDMI handshake compatibility issue. Maybe the issue can be fixed with a firmware update, or something like that.
For reference, I have a Sewell passive 40 ft cable rated at 18 gigabit per second. Cost 40 bucks. It failed a test in this thread, but a YouTube video showed the cable passing a similar test. And it seemed to pass for me. Works fine with 4K@60hz content from my Xbox One S.
