Welcome Bongo -- my first question is, why do you have TWO Blu-Ray players and also an upconverting DVD player?
I guess maybe you use the 2910 as a "universal" player for SACD or something, but two BDP's?
I would have to imagine one of the two BDP's does a better job with SD DVD playback than the old 2910. And, even if they don't, the AVR 2310CI itself should be the best SD DVD upscaler you have.
Anyway..... to your issues....
On the Denon, there aren't really any settings that would affect HDMI switching, assuming you have assigned your inputs correctly
. It sounds like you are having some weird "handshake" failures with some of your devices. I would try things like swapping HDMI cables, swapping HDMI inputs (e.g. try the 2910 in HDMI-2 instead of HDMI-4 or whatever), and also check the Sammy BDP's settings and see if there are any "HDMI-CEC" or other such features that you can turn off.
Also, try turning off "HDMI Control" on the Denon just in case.
Another thing to try on the input assignment front -- for certain inputs the Denon may default to multiple connections assigned to that "name". For example, by default the "DVD" name is assigned to both "HDMI-1" and "COMP-1" video inputs. Try going into the input assignment screen and setting your HDMI inputs to "NONE" for everything else but HDMI.
