I wanted to share fre things about my setup.
Few weeks ago I purchased Onkyo TX-SR507 receiver, 4 - HDMI in, 1 HDMI out, with the though ofconnecting my new LG BD370 Blu-Ray player with Netflix capability. Also I wanted to connect my Optimum Cable HD receiver.
Well, here's my dilleama and hopefully someone might give me some guidance.
I loved the HDMI connectivity of my cable hd receiver and the roku box, picture was great, loved it. The minute I connected the LG BD 370 to one of the HDMI AV box, my picture from the LG DVD was scrambled green.
Not good and I wasn't too happy. Looking deeper into the manual and contacting Optoma, and LG, I was told by Optoma support that I can't connect via HDMI cable, so why is the connection there in the first place.
I have tried reducing the LG DVD players resolution to 720, 1080i, still same green screen. I have read somewhere that there might be a "handshaking" issue between HD71 and the LB blu-ray player but to this day Optoma says there are no issues or firmware updates for their HD71 projector and that I should be using a component cable to so that's what I did, I reconnected everything via comonent cables and I am looking at 1080i.
Still would like to know if any of you using HD71 with Blu-Ray player can connect via HDMI. That's what I am after, preferebly with Netflix capability..
Thanks in advance for your input
