I tried that - no change.

This does work, but it's not a solution for my setup. If A+B was used when AVR was last powered off, no video will be output to TV, therefore no way to see AVR menu to change the setting.
TV - does it support the same range of signal formats as the Projector
TV 1080, projector supports 4K, but I can limit it to 1080. I've tried both ways with the same result. Even with the projector unplugged from AC, the problem persists.
and do you have Conversion disabled on the AVR (if it offers it)?
Conversion is enabled on the Denon (There's no on screen display without it.) but conversion id disabled on the Yamaha. Same problem either way.
Hybrid Fibre HDMI - I can run multiple Outputs on my Arcam and Yamaha AVR's using the Ruipro Hybrid Fibre cables without the issue you describe.
Do you think it's the non hybrid nature of the cable which is causing this. Is there a reason why I would need some copper to get this to work?
It seems to be an HDMI issue with the fiber cable. With both ends of that cable physically plugged in, and no power to the projector (either in standby or unplugged completely) I get an HDMI error message from my Tivo to the other HDMI output. With the projector on, everything works perfectly.
Thanks so much for your help.
