I am new here, I have lurked here without being a member for years and have always found the answers to my questions without having to post. For that I thank you guys and gals for your expertise. My latest issue has to do with my home theater set up.
It is as follows hooked up via hdmi in this order:
Dell Zino htpc with all the newest drivers and a fresh install of windows 7
Sony ct150 sound bar with HDMI pass through.
Optoma 720 Projector HD66
Everything worked great without the sound bar. Once I hooked up the sound bar I knew right away it was having handshake issues. I googled and saw a thread on here with instructions on how to use moninfo to create a custom driver. I did it and bam the thing fires right up and no more blue or black screen, no more "searching" finding " searching" finding restart.
Thought I had it all fixed but did not actually try watching anything because I had to go to work. I get home from work and fire it up and realize the sound icon in the system tray says there is no speakers or headphones plugged in. I am running it all through HDMI with brand new hdmi cables from monoprice. If I unplug the hdmi from the back of the zino then plug back in the sound pops right back up. Seems like I still may have some sort of handshake issue but with just audio?
If you have any suggestions it would be great.
