I am trying to get my home theater setup complete and have ran into a problem. I cannot see the video being produced by my blu ray player. Let me explain my setup. First, the equipment: Panasonic BDT-210 Blu Ray, Denon 591AVR Reciever, Optoma HD 20 Projector. There is a HDMI taking my Blu Ray to a HDMI in on the reciever. Here is where it gets tricky. I am using HDMI wall plates so running my HDMI from the reciever out to the projector is a series of 5 HDMI cables. 1) Reciever to front wall plate 2) 4 inch piece as part of wall plate 3) 25ft HDMI cable 4) 4inch piece as part of wall plate 5) 5ft HDMI from rear wall plate to projector.
WHen i turn everything on i can hear the movie playing but have no video, and the projector says it has no input signal. I have verified i am on the correct input settings on both ends( projector and reciever). However, when i press the menu button on my reciever , my projector shows this image on the screen, this is a 480i image. Therefore i know some kind of signal is getting through the cables.
I have directly connected the blu ray to the projector, and recieved a very nice picture, therefore i know it is not the blu ray. I have also connected the blur ray straight to the first wall plate, which gave me no picture. This indicated to me that the problem is in one of my HDMI cables or the connections. Is this simply to many connections? Why can i see the reciever menu, but not the movie which is 1080p? Thanks for any insight!
