Can someone confirm my suspicion that my HDMI board is also toast?
I have tried changing cables, HDMI inputs on the Denon, video sources, and displays, but the problem is consistently the same. There is no video. Audio works in some cases (see my testing sequences below), but I can't get the Denon to display anything on my TVs (no menu or video sources).
Here's what I found out after testing several configurations:
A-1) If I don't have a TV connected when powering the Denon and video sources, audio is heard and Denon reports HDMI connection is working.
A-2) If I now connect to TV, video doesn't show.
B-1) If I have a TV connected when powering on devices, there is no audio or video, and no HDMI connection is reported by Denon.
B-2) If at this point I disconnect the TV, I suddenly get audio and Denon shows HDMI connection is up again.
B-3) If I reconnect TV, nothing changes (i.e. audio plays and HDMI connection is reported on Denon, but no picture appears on the TV).
B-4) If I now switch inputs, HDMI connection to video source is lost, i.e. there is no audio or no picture.
Any advice, or am I out of luck? I already tried resetting the amp several times to no avail.
