Recently brought a projector to connect to my home cinema setup and having issues with my PCs running xmbc.
AVR - Onkyo 805
TV - Panasonic Plasma TV (don't remember model, 4yrs old)
Projector - Acer P1220
PC 2 - Dell Optiplex 360 + ATI GFX
PC 1 - Viewsonic VOT132 + Nvidia GFX
When i connect either PC via HDMI directly to the projector it displays ok.
When i connect either PC => HDMI => AVR => TV displays ok and AVR gets the bitstreammed sound ok
When i connect either PC => HDMI => AVR => Projector displays yet the AVR gets no sound at all. But when i have either PS3 or Wii U connected via HDMI => AVR => projector, display and sound is fine.
So far i've just managed to get sound through the AVR and picture on the projector by, and tinkering with xmbc display settings.
PC =>HDMI=> AVR => TV (TV switched off) for sound
PC => DVI /HDMI => Projector for display.
I've also noticed that the AVR displays no signal
Originally i thought it was the new 10m HDMI cable i ordered but tested this and works ok connecting various ways also i even removed the 10m cable form the setup and still have the same issue.
I don't fancy changing the AVR with dual HDMI output as i'm still not convinced if that will work since i tried a HDMI dual output splitter and still did not work and its a bit pricey for me to replace the Onkyo 805.
Anyone got any ideas or suggestions?
