Good day guys, please give me advice... On new year i make a gift for myself with new EPSON TW8100, to swap my TW2900 used for 2 years with pleasure rolleyes.gif

So, close to a problem - 8100 is shutting off its image when a lot of white color in image (as white background in folders of windows, white flashes in cinema, etc)
theres an youtube of it (sorry for russian speaking, i saying the same i write here)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxzZra-ueU8

My setup is

Projector - 15 meters HDMI-HDMI cabel HQ 1.4 - receiver INTEGRA 70.2 - 1.5m hdmi-hdmi HQ - HTPC and PS3.

All works absolutely fine with PS3 - its not a lot of white in menus and games you know biggrin.gif

But when we chose the HTPC the problem comes up - its going off if you open ANYTHING white on fullscreen... its problem...

After 3 days of researching the problem, swaping a lot of hdmi cables, using HDMI signal amplifier and etc etc etc, i conclude that all works fine if projector pluged in Radeon 6670 directly, excluding INTEGRA 70.2.

Yesterday i buy Gefrorce GT640 with native HDMI (not mini) - problem stay the same.

If i plug HDMI in DVI-HDMI connector (so its DVI-RECEIVER-PROJECTOR) - all works FINE! But when its hdmi-receiver-projector, its not working.

I tried all preferences on HTPC driver - swap resolution to 720p, to 24hz, to 16 bit - no profit, problem stay as is.
Same in projector and receiver (there's a lack of customizing there huh)..

Can you help me with solution - what can i do to make it work fine?

what about HDMI CEC? any chance the receiver could be telling the projector to turn off when it gets a wonky signal from the htpc?

I'd look for any menu options and turn off any control-via-HDMI options in the receiver and projector.

Hi

I have the same issue with my TW8100. The Projector is connected to a Marantz SR7007 that is connected to the HDMI port of a HTPC with an Asus P8H77-M Pro MoBo with an Intel Core i7 processor with e the Intel HD4000 GPU. The cable between the HTPC and receiver is 1m, between the receiver and projector 9m.

If I display a big white window (app 66% or more of the screen size) then I get a black screen. The projector is then "dead" because it doesn't react anymore to re remote control or power button.

Did you find a solution already?

Thanks

hi there! Bad news, but i dont have any update here , but have some way to make my home theatre work. I already swapped projector twice to new one and problem stays, so its can be only problem in software of projectors and it way how it take signal from HTPC. (because 3 another works fine - tw2900, benq w600, acer 5360)

I found that projector works fine when plugged directly into HTPC, without receiver. It can blink for 1 second to blank black, but only in windows folders with white.
But in that way theres no sound of course(videocard not conected to receiver)...
so i make my system work that way:
In HTPC i install 2 videocards (ATI ofc) - 1 video is directly to projector, sedond video to receiver - it works good, no problems with 2D nor 3D playing.
Second way that i have PS3/Xbox/BDplayer so need to plugin receiver in projector too, so i lay second HDMI from receiver to Projector...

Its kinda lots of cables, but only that way it works =((((

Hi

Thank you for the tip.

After I connected the TW8100 direct to my HTPC the problem is also gone. Unfortunatly I don't have a 2th HDMI output. I connected the DVI output from mi MoBo to my receiver in combination with the SPDIF and this also works.

I made my last post to fast. With the direct cable connection the problem occurs not so frequent but it is not solved completely.

In another thread on AVSforum I found quite some posts with the same problem and somebody mentioned that his problem was solved with new firmware (version 1.03)

I am now trying to get this new firmware from Epson…

yeah, same here from me, problem not resolved and appears even more often now =\ i cant open any folder in windows without image disabling after that. If that problem resolved it will be extremely good =)

I got the 1.03 version firmware in my projector. I reconnected the projector to the receiver and it is already running a few hours without blanking... fingers crossed.
