I've been battling this issue for a long time now and am pretty confident that it has been resolved...FINALLY.
I hope this helps someone or is at least educational. I'm copy/pasting a few posts from a Sony AVR thread
So I've been having this issue for awhile now and believe the issue lies with my Sony AVR. What happens is sometimes when switching inputs from DirecTV to BDP or vice versa, PS4 to DirecTV or vice versa there is a handshake issue and the screen turns black with green horizontal flashing lines. I've played with many different settings on all pieces of equipment in the chain, tried unplugging the HDMI cable from the projector & AVR for 30 seconds and then plug them back in, but the problem still persists and the only way to fix the issue is to power off everything with my Harmony Touch remote and then power everything back on after the projector has cooled down for a few minutes. This is a major hassle and just plain embarrassing when trying to entertain a group of people.
JVC DLA-X700R (Projector)
Sony STR-DN1040 (AVR)
Oppo BDP-103D (Blu-ray Player)
Sony PS4 (Game Console)
DirecTV Genie DVR
Custom Gaming HTPC
SurgeX XU115 (Power Conditioner & Battery Backup) HTPC & Projector are plugged into the UPS bank
35' Cable Matters HDMI cable from JVC projector -> Sony AVR
5' Monster HDMI cables from Sony AVR -> all other components
The 35' HDMI & Power Cables for the projector run thru the same conduit, but both cables are shielded.
All of my components are connected via Ethernet and have all the latest firmware updates.
The only thing I haven't tried thus far is purchasing another 35' HDMI cable so I could run one of them from the projector to the Oppo BDP and the other from the projector to the DirecTV DVR. This way I could use the internal switching of the JVC projector to see if I still get the same issue (if so, then it must be the JVC projector, if not the issue must be the Sony AVR). But I have more than two components in my chain so it would be a pain having to set it up this way just to test this theory, hence the reason I haven't tried it.
Please provide any insight...
What type of Cable/SAT TV provider do you have?
I'm using DirecTV (Genie DVR) and there's a video setting set to Native that I turned off. Since making that change the other day, I haven't had the issue I was experiencing before. I'm going to continue testing this over the next couple weeks and I'll report back my findings, but so far this seems to have resolved my issue.
What prompted this discovery was I noticed that while switching between my BDP & PS4 (something I rarely do), I had no issues whatsoever, no matter how fast I switched inputs or how many consecutive times I switched inputs between those two sources. But when I add the input switching for my DirecTV Genie DVR into the mix, then I get problems. This is what led me to believe that the problem didn't lie with my projector or AVR, but with my DirecTV Genie DVR. After doing some online research, this is a known issue with many AVRs and TV set top boxes (not isolated to Sony & DirecTV). This makes sense, since a lot of manufacturers source the same components for their similar competing products.
If you have another type of Cable/SAT set top box, dig around in the video settings (there shouldn't be many) and try to find a similar setting to "Native" and disable it and see if that helps. You may have to do some online searching or call your service provider for assistance.
I also only have my DirecTV Genie DVR set to ouput 1080i & 1080p (there's resolution check boxes).
I hope this helps and I'll report back after a couple weeks of testing.
Ok, after some further testing, just switching that setting to Native in my DirecTV Genie was not the fix. And this setting actually played no role in my issue.
What has resolved my issue was by turning off 4K scaling in my Sony AVR & Oppo BDP and just letting my JVC projector handle 4K scaling. Another key setting that I had to be sure to turn off on each piece of gear was HDMI-CEC. Only after disabling CEC on all of my devices AND disabling 4K scaling on all of my devices (except on my projector) has my issue been totally rectified.
Please note that each manufacturer has it's own branding for CEC, but this can be figured out by doing some online searching.
I hope all of this research and testing can help others as it has been a major pain in the you know what for me. But I'm finally able to enjoy trouble free HDMI switching and resolution changes.
