Some input signals are not displayed clearly

I recently made the decision not to make a $350 repair to my Mitsubishi DLP Projector, so I bought a replacement bulb for our Eiki LC-XB25 and began getting it ready to serve some time in our media room.

Obviously with the lower lumens, I knew I couldn't expect miracles, but I get a good enough quality picture on some sources, but others are messing up.

Here's the setup:

Video Sources
A) Sony BDPS1200 Blu-Ray Disc Player (via HDMI)
B) Wii U (via HDMI)
C) Xbox 360 (via Composite Cables)
D) Charter Spectrum Cable HD Receiver (via HDMI)

All video sources are routed to an Onkyo TX-NR626 Receiver for switching.

Output from the Onkyo to the Eiki projector is via a 30 ft. HDMI cable that is adapted at the projector end to DVI-D.

All four sources are working, but 2 of them (the Wii U and the Blu-Ray player) have staticky horizontal lines in the image. I am attaching a link to a video I shot, but I can't see the lines on my monitor, perhaps you can.

It is almost as if the Wii U and Blu-Ray player's signal strengths are too high and the projector can't deal with it.

To be fair, every one of the video sources except the Xbox are different than what I used with the old projector, including the Onkyo receiver. The lightning hit took out all the others.

All of these devices look fine when sent to the TV instead.

Any suggestions of anything I can try to clear it up would be appreciated.

Steve

Well, crap! I would have though someone would have some ideas. I guess I'm going to swap out some equipment and see if it clears up.
