Followup to DVR+ and Yamaha AVR issue.

I had a reply from Channel Master tech support today saying the DVR+ is not compatible with the Yamaha RX-V377 AV receiver. Seems strange to me that two relatively new pieces of electronics would not properly support HDMI. Is there anyone else on the forum using a Yamaha receiver with their DVR+???
Just to follow up, I finally resolved the issue. As a last resort, I ordered some Amazon Basics High-Speed HDMI Cables and replaced all the HDMI cables. Lo and behold everything now works as it is supposed to. Turns out that the HDMI cable that went from the AVR out to the TV was bad or the wrong version cable (I found HDMI 1.3 printed on the cable itself). Needed to say the culprit has been cut into small pieces and properly disposed of so as to never again wreak havoc again with poor souls such as I.
