Is anyone else having difficulty with their RS4910 having issues switching from a blu ray players home menu
and a blu rays 24p? I never had an issue until I reconfigured my oppo 103D to use split A/v since my AVR is not able to pass 3d and I wanted to try 3d
I have emailed oppo but they have no answer. I have also posted this in the oppo and HDMI threads since it is a multifaceted issues that involves all three. I don't mean to cross post this to be annoying, just not sure what component is causing the issue or what I can do to remedy it.
Here is what I have posted:
I am having trouble with my oppo 103D and JVC 4910 handshaking when switching from the home menu
to a blu ray @24p. It does not happen all the time but maybe 50% of the time I get a blank screen with a multicolored line. If I switch the matrix switch to reverse the input the JVC "sees" and then switch back it will usually fix itself.
The issue began when I changed the wiring to utilize split AV mode so I can pass 3D to the JVC since my AVR does not support 3D. Note that I also have to force 24p and 3D in the oppo in order to get it to work at all or it will not see a 3D device and blu rays will play at 60p.
I suspect the matrix switch may be the issue, but the PS3 also connected to that switch has no issues negotiated wither 24p or 3D...but doing that means I lose losses and darbee.
I have attached a wiring diagram showing the old and new signal path. Note that the TV in the chain is non 3d and does not to 24p. This has never presented a problem as I just ensure that the TV is "seeing" the PS3 when the oppo is in use and this gets prevents the oppo from seeing both the tv and the PJ and picking the lowest common denominator. It's always worked fine through 3 projectors. As I said, the only change is using the 2 hdmi outputs to send video to the switch and audio to the AVR.
I am aware HDMI uses the lowest common denominator, but like I mentioned, I've used this exact setup (just with a single HDMI out from the oppo to the AVR) with a non 3D non 24P tv and was always able to get the PJ to get 24p with no issues and the PS3 can auto negotiate 3D through the switch ignoring the TV since the TV is set to "see" a different input" The only change I made was the split wiring from the Oppo. Now I have to force 24p and 3D to get the PJ to see either and half the time it gets stuck with no picture or sound going from the home menu
to the movie @24p. Forcing a re-handshake fixes this.
I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions? Has anyone heard of redmere cables actually causing HDMI handshake issues? I was thinking maybe a HDMI Detective between the JVC and the matrix switch to help with handshaking and EDID?
