I have owned a JVC D-ILA model 56G786 720p for about two and a half years now, however, I have just gotten around to subscribing to High Def satellite service. Anyway, when hooking up the new satellite receiver, I have been unable to get a picture when connecting via the HDMI cable. I tried running the cable from the satellite receiver to my Marantz HT receiver with a second cable (labled HDMI 1.3a) from the HT receiver to the telvision and got a black screen. I then tried running the HDMI directly from the satellite receiver to the television's HDMI connection which also resulted in no picture. At one point I got an orange screen, but nothing else.
FWIW, the Marantz receiver, which is fairly new, has HDMI 1.2, but the television does not mention what version HDMI it uses. Does this even make a difference? The owner's manual for the Marantz indicates that if the monitor does not support HDCP, that you will not get a picture. The JVC manual does not mention anything about HDCP. I also checked the satellite receiver's settings, and it is set for 480i, 480p, and 720p.
Any ideas? Are HDMI versions totally incompatible? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
