Wit's end, please help with handshake issue..

Hi, I'm on my 3rd receiver, 2nd blu ray player and maybe a new tv soon trying to solve this.

I feel my Vizio e50-d1 might be the problem now. I've hooked BD players up directly to the tv with no problems. I've had just the receiver connected to the tv with no problems. The problem always comes when the BD player, Receiver, TV are all hooked up together. I've tried every combo of hooking up, turning on, inputs, outputs, it just always shows the blu ray splash screen for a second then starts flashing and says no signal.
I've tried 3 receivers and 2 BD players so all that's left is the tv. But it's weird that everything hooks up on it's own to the tv with no problems. I"ve also tried turning off any 'Auto' in the settings and updated firmware.
Please help, any ideas, is the TV pooched??!!

Kit - Some detail on your kit would be handy, make and Full model number.

CEC - find and disable HDMI Control on all devices.

Cables - how is the kit connected?

Sources - is it just the BD Player you have a problem with when going via the AVR?

Most handshaking problems are caused by deficient HDMI cables. All of the cables need to be certified for use with 18Gbit signals. e.g. "Certified Premium", not just "High Speed" or "Standard Speed" cables. Unfortunately, older cables simply don't work reliably with recent HDMI chipsets.

^^^^^ and not all Premium High Speed HDMI cables (ATC certified) have the most current version of HDMI chipsets if they are active, and the same is true for the connected hardware, which compounds the problem.
