I am having a problem with the video from the MRX300 and the Bell 6400. There have been so many suggestion, I believe I have tried them all to no avail.
Testing consists of a Bell 6400 receiver, an Anthem MRX300 and a low end LG LED/LCD TV.
I am using 2 - 6 ft hdmi cables, one between each unit. Cables have been swapped so that each has been tried in each place.
Both cables have been tested going from the Bell 6400 direct to the TV and the video is fine.
No DVI converters in the set-up.
No other hdmi connections. The MRX has the latest firmware, Bell 6400 update automatically, there is no manual update. I don't see that the TV can be updated.
I have tried every hdmi input on the MRX and every hdmi input on the TV from the MRX.
I have tried various output resolutions on the Bell 6400, 480i, 480p, 720p & 1080i with matching output configuration on the MRX except for the following:
The MRX does not make 480i a valid output configuration, presumably because the TV can't do it. I have also tried pass though.
In every case the MRX 'info' button reports the Audio is DD5.1 and the Video is 1080i or what ever resolution I set the Bell box to.
The results are always the same, audio works fine, the video does not.
The MRX is seeing the video input as it tracks the change in resolution on the front display as I change it on the Bell Box.
It is also blocking the video because the on screen Set-up menu will not display. If I do nothing else but pull the HDMI cable from the Bell 6400 the on screen set-up menu will appear.
Also tested: HTPC hdmi works fine on any hdmi input to the MRX.
Not surprising the MRX will do the analog video out of the Bell 6400. I'm guessing because there is no HDCP in that connection.
I have reported the issue to Anthem support but I still need to update them will all these results.
Once again thank you every for your support and please any suggestion is a good suggestion at this point.
