I have the following equipment:
- Sanyo Z2 (projector)
-Yamaha RX-c1600 (receiver)
-Yamaha dvd player (don't remember the name...)
When I connect the receiver to the projector (HDMI/DVI-D) I get HDMI-ERROR, HDCP-ERROR on the receiver. Have tried switching of the equipment, but get the same error come up again.
I have recently upgraded (Sanyo Sweden) the Z2 to firmware 108 but the problem is still there.
I hope i finally have found what causing the problem with HDCP-error, no picture on the projector.
Read the following and please comment:

Ok i emailed yamaha and had a reply in half an hour - for interested parties :
The reason the different resolutions are greyed out is due to the fact that
the EDID from your projectors DVI socket is not allowing the RXV2600 to
apply further scaling and saying that is does not support these
resolutions. It the EDID data does not say the resolutions are supported
then the HDMI repeater assumes that it can not support that resolution. In
some cases, this data has been omitted from the EDID and to overcome this,
we are looking at a firmware upgrade to offer to consumers who require
although this is not quite completed. Once available, you will need to
contact your dealer or a service centre to have this installed. This will
allow the amp to "ignore" the communication from the projector and apply
levels of scaling which the projector is not saying it will allow. Please
be aware that this could result in the image being incorrectly displayed as
the amp will now be able to display any resolution even though the
projector is not saying it can support this. Also, the upgrade is
I would envisage that this upgrade will be available in around 3 or 4 weeks
Now i know the hs10 pj is capable of higher resolutions but no idea what EDID is, so do any hs10 users know if there something in the menu i can adjust

EDID is extended display identification data and is the data stream sent from the display device giving data such as maximum resolution, vendor info, colour capabilities, timings, frequency limits etc, monitor name etc.... This string is a certain length and sometime data is omitted as there is not room for everything. In your case, Sony have not included the maximum resolution so the EDID is not givin the receiver the info it needs, so it prevents scaling as the display device may not be able to display the scaled signal. There will be no settings in your projector to alter this. The only way around is new firmware in the projector which can alter the EDID or as Mr Yamaha says, force the receiver to ignore the EDID by using thier upgrade. Did Yamaha say if this was a free upgrade? It seems like they are modifying their product to get around others problems. Would be surprised if this was FOC.
