I just received a Pace 775D running 26.60 software from Metrocast Cablevision in Maryland. It is connected via HDMI through my Sony STR-5700ES receiver to my Sony XBR65HX950 TV. When the 775D is tuned to extended high def channels, e.g. Food Network, my screen blanks every 5 seconds. (Yes, I bought all this to watch Food Network. Hey, you first eat with your eyes, right?) This doesn't happen on standard def or broadcast network hi def. Burrowing through the diagnostic pages I saw that the 775D is recognizing the repeater bit out of the receiver, but HDCP handshake results in failed.
Obviously, the Metrocast help line folks were a bit in the dark about how the HDCP repeater bit is parsed.
Is there anything I can do besides resorting to component video? Kind of a step in the wrong direction, considering I have $10K worth of the latest gear.
