Projector won't display or "May all HDMI switchers go to hell"
Just installed a Denon AVR-S920W with 6 of the 7 HDMI outputs spoken for. This unit has two HDMI outputs. The second output has a Rocketfish HDMI splitter feeding a Panasonic plasma and a small cheap Sansui HD TV.
The disturbing problem I'm experiencing is that a Panasonic projector ("isolated" on the main HDMI output") simply repetitively flashes to its input page rather than, say, the cable signal. Sometimes, not usually, a hocus-pocus combination of button pushing will finally get me the correct signal. Stranger, the projector turns on perfectly if the other two monitors, on the second HDMI output, especially the Panasonic, are turned on simultaneously. Likewise the small Sansui TV will show signal only if the Panasonic is on. Though, again, I can get the Sansui going solo through pushing a (seemingly) random set of component resets.
I expect all this is the dastardly work of that splitter as it affects HCPC. In past I set up a system with plenty of (expensive) HDMI splitters and switchers only to pull all of them because of unpredictable video. Is it now too much to ask for one little split on that second HDMI out? Apparently so.
So I have just purchased an HDMI SWITCHER that needs a button push to change outputs. The thinking is that as long as all the machinery sees only one machine at a time maybe it will behave.
Oh, and I see at the top of my AVSForum page the message: "Welcome, Rob BG. You last visited: 12-31-1969." I think this proof positive that I had a computer before any of you.
