Sleeper timer? No...
Again, I could go back to right before that spot and it would do it again and again. A sleeper timer would reset when the receiver was turned back on, and the only setting similar to that is that I have as much of my gear set to turn off after a certain number of hours of inactivity or no signal. The test with removing the Darblet from the line-up was done within a minute (or so) of the previous and next next tests with the Darblet back in line.
I turned everything back off yesterday, obviously, including unplugging the Darblet's power. Then this morning, I disconnected and reconnected the entire HDMI cably string (blu-ray to receiver, receiver to Darblet, Darblet to projector). I powered the system up, and put Tron back in. I went to 1 minute prior to the previous receiver shut down spot, and it played through it just fine. I went back probably 3 more times and kept trying, and it worked just fine.
So the issue *seems* to have gone away, but I am still concerned as to when it will rear its ugly head again. Prior to getting my Darblet (again, only have watched a couple of movies with it), in all of the dozens and dozens of movies watched, I have never had the receiver ever shut down like that during a movie, let alone at the exact same spot, so to me it is clear that the Darblet is feeding back some sort of signal through HDMI. I mean, my tests proved that it is since it comes after the receiver, and the receiver only shut down with the Darblet in-line. That concerns me.
