Thank you. Also how does it work in terms of concept of having HDCP issue suddenly out of nowhere and only on one port.

Also I tried different and smaller length HDMI cable with different sources like Laptop. So why suddenly HDCP issues out of nowhere.

No idea, I think it might have been a power surge or something weird that went through my denon avr. Same thing happened to my old Optoma, about a month or two after switching from a direct connection from pc to projector to using an avr my hdmi ports began to fail, both ports on my Optoma, then I picked up a 5020 from a friend, then the same thing happened there after a month or so, at that point I picked up an hdmi splitter, boom, both my Optoma and 5020 work using the splitter. It has to be something with the handshake that is failing.

Thanks I suppose I can try but doesn't make sense since HDMI Input 2 works but HDMI Input 1 doesn't work with anything. Cable is fine. I have 30ft cable running through drywall. Not sure how splitter will help in this case.

Something is fishy in terms of how Epson projectors handle long HDMI cables.

The splitter removes the hdcp handshake and boosts the signal, some avr are more sensitive than others. Mine started the same way, one hdmi died then the other did. Splitter fixes both.

So got OREI HDS-102 HDMI splitter and didn't work for me. I put splitter between projector and receiver. So HDMI Port 1 is fried. I have until Mar 2018 for warranty exchange. So will use the projector until then and see if HDMI 2 fails. Sucks how HDMI port among all things fail. I hope Epson stocks 5020UB. I guess they must have a lot for these kind of replacement issues.

Maybe you will get lucky and get a 5030 or 5040.
