My menu question was merely to establish if the projector was functional. Sounds like it is and the cable is good.
So press the menu button, and make sure the input is set to the same input connector that the HDMI cable is attached to. I suspect that you have it set some other way or on auto. Just a suspicion. Since you are using the receiver to do the source selection, just force the input selection.
The turn on sequence of HDMI components can make a difference. Here is how the fine folks at OPPO Digital describe it:
"In general, HDMI works best during power up if you turn things on in the reverse order of the HDMI chain -- that is, display first, then AVR, then source device (the player in this case). This is simply because HDMI is an end to end protocol driven by the source device, and so if everything down stream of it has had a chance to wake up, have some coffee, read the paper, and change the cat there are fewer things standing in the way."
If you are doing the turn-on with individual remotes, do it in this sequence. If you are programming a remote like a Harmony do it in this sequence.
