Okay guys so today all my adapters and stuff came in so I tried everything. Here is what happened with the m1 input:
1) Satalite worked perfectly, instantly synched through the m1 input (m1 --> hdmi)
2) DVD player menu works, but then when you load a dvd, the screen goes blank. I tried two different dvd players (an older one with dvi out and a new one with hdmi out) and the same thing happened each time. The home screen on the player works, but the minute you put a disk in, the screen goes blank and it loses the connection completely, meaning that to get the home screen to appear on the projector, I have to turn the dvd player off, take out the disk, and turn it back on. I also tried three different dvd's and each one did the same thing. BUT i had an art disk on dvd (not a movie i guess) and that worked! Whats going on here?
So what does this mean? The input works, but doesn't work with dvd's? Does this have anything to do with hdcp???
My new preamp, wiring, and blu ray player is coming tomorrow, but i ordered the hd fury just in case i cant get it to work with the m1 port. I would really love to avoid using the hdfury unit and just go direct to the m1, but obviously something isn't working here. I don't exactly understand the whole hdcp compliance thing, but I have a hunch it has something to do with that since dvd's didnt work but satalite and a art dvd did...
